I have never queued for a piece of consumer technology. I refuse to join the niche crowd of early-adopters who do so. Or at least I have until now, with no gadget that has so far been released making me feel it’s a worthwhile thing to do. As was the subject of a recent opinion piece.
However, that isn’t to say there won’t one day be a gadget released which has me so wrapped up in anticipation that I deem it worth my time and effort to wait in line for the opportunity to get my hands on one. And I suspect you’re the same as me. We here at MakeUseOf want to know what gadget, real or imagined, is or would be worth queuing for.
This Week’s Question…
Which Gadget Is Or Would Be Worth Queuing For?
This can be an existing gadget that you don’t own but you’d love to. Whether it be one of the many Apple iDevices, the latest Android handset, a shiny new games console or whatever piece of consumer tech you desperately want to get your hands on. All of the above are gadgets people have in the past queued religiously for. Often for days on end.
Or you can use this is an opportunity to don your inventor’s cap and think about the one gadget you’d love that hasn’t yet been developed. Let your creativity flow, and imagine THE gadget you’d gladly stand all day in a queue to get your hands on. Of course if you took it from drawing board to production yourself then you wouldn’t ever have to queue. Perhaps Kickstarter could help you realize your dreams.
We Ask You… now You Tell Us. All comments will be digested to form conclusions in a follow-up post next week.
