GADGETS


In a mission to rescue hardware enthusiasts from the eternally twee and precious, our friends at Wired.com proudly present this collection of badass gadgetry—shining examples of aggressive, purpose-built hardware design. Each of the products in this round-up is imbued with an aesthetic subtext that approaches you with a face slap, puts you in a submission hold, and whispers coldly in your ear, "Fear me. Respect me. Honor my fearsome posture." These aren't necessarily the best gadgets in the product sphere. These are simply the gadgets that exude industrial design overkill—and sometimes outright design belligerence.
