Raspberry Pi Zero W (see elsewhere on this list) BUT also with a nice little screen, and the world's best thumb-keyboard - basically a small WiFi Linux phone without the phone. Like if a BlackBerry had run real Linux. How neat is that?

Nooelec RaTLSnake 3-Antenna Bundle for RTL-SDR 8 out of 108 out of 10
1 wanted
I've been playing some fun ham-radio games with the amazing little RTL-SDR super-wideband USB radio receiver. It came with a pretty crappy antenna though, I've had to borrow one off of something else that would really like it back. This is supposed to be the best set of antennas, if you can catch it whilst it's in stock!

At the risk of being shockingly boring and practical...
Our vacuum cleaner is really rather good UNTIL you run over something that jams it, at which point it burns its own belt within 2 seconds. I feel like we almost need a subscription of these things :-/
