Name the Thing Contest – 190

at 11:39 pm. Filed under Contests


Thanks to ideasbynet.com for sponsoring the contest this week. They will be providing a cool What?Gravity Mobile Phone Holders to the winner. This is one great looking cell phone holder that is sure to enhance the desk of anyone who needs to access their smart phone throughout the day. There is a video below so you can see it in action.

It features a soft-touch silicone panel that grips and holds in place any modern phone… even Sir Isaac’s ‘apple’  (iPhone). Without using magnets, grippers, catches or a ledge, it seemingly defies gravity, hence its name.  Its contemporary ultra-slim styling and discreet presence make it an essential desk accessory.”

This contest will run for one week (October 29 – November 4, 2011) . Ending time is based on central standard time. To enter, identify the item pictured above and give an example of what can be done with it.

Please do not give the answer in the comments.

    where to begin
    pallet jack, backpack, toolbox, 1 gallon jug, step stool, blue painters tape, engine lift and a roller cart.

  9. Kozz Says:

    I know this… it’s a pallet jack! It’s used to lift and move heavy things.

  10. Noah Says:

    That does look like the Toe-Smasher 3000.
    LNI claims have gone up 7 times since the 2000 model.

  16. Stan Says:

    It’s the “Vingulum” from a BORG cube.

  17. Rex Says:

    How do you announce the winner?
    I think it would be better if the name of the winner was announced (either in the comments or in the post itself), don’t you think?
    It was the first time I entered the contest and I’m sorry if all of this is already being done somewhere else but that I don’t even know if the winner has already been chosen 🙂

  18. mark Says:

    that reminds me of the old 20MB harddrive i had for my apple2e computer back in the early 90s…
    wow…i wish that i had picked up a palletjack to move that one around too!!!

  19. Alan Parekh Says:

    Hi Rex,

    There will be an addition made to the article saying what it is and who the winner is. This will be done soon. There will also be a comment saying that the winner was announced. You can see this on all past contests here: http://hackedgadgets.com/category/contests/
