Show us Some Gadget Uses the Manufacturers Never Intended

Illustration for article titled Show us Some Gadget Uses the Manufacturers Never Intended

Sure, gadgets all have their uses that they were designed for, but that doesn't mean they can't serve other purposes. Once you buy something, you can do whatever the hell you want with it. Maybe you're using your old boom box to keep the tarp on your boat from flying away in the wind. Maybe you're using your old, broken iPhone as an ashtray. Perhaps your PSP is propping up a wobbly table. There are plenty of strange uses for gadgets that aren't in any instruction manual, and we want to see them. So bust out your camera and snap a picture of your unique gadget use. Send it over to me at with the subject line "strange gadget uses" and the file named FirstnameLastname.jpg with the name that you want to be credited with. On Tuesday, I'll pick three top winners and post the rest of the best in the Gallery of Champions. Get to it!
