  • 1. The Windows Club – Top 10 Failed Gadgets 1 Top 10 Failed Electronic Gadgets Of All Time
  • 2. The Windows Club – Top 10 Failed Gadgets 2 The list includes mostly wearable electronic gadgets While we are here, a question: Are wearable gadgets, a health risk? Is Google Glass a Flop Already? I’ve heard people do not want to wear it while going out as it is inconvenient. Then there are laws to be made regarding its usage in public places and while driving. What is your view on Google Glasses – liked or already a flop? I am not commenting on it yet.
  • 3. The Windows Club – Top 10 Failed Gadgets 3 POMO WEARABLE COMPUTER Nice sleek design Could perform limited computing less than the smartphones of today Problem was wires hanging all over body.
  • 4. The Windows Club – Top 10 Failed Gadgets 4 NIKE FUEL BAND Was supposed to measure the amount of exercise you did everyday. It was supposed to be connected to Nike’s website and give you data. It was not compatible with other apps and was not accurate at times. In April 2014, the company decided to drop all the hardware it built, to focus only on the software products – essentially apps for smartphones and all.
  • 5. The Windows Club – Top 10 Failed Gadgets 5 Galaxy Gear Had to be paired with phone Not many apps were available to keep people engaged It is rumored that Galaxy will come up with an advance version that won’t require phone pairing
  • 6. The Windows Club – Top 10 Failed Gadgets 6 Bluetooth Headsets Saw a steep rise when launched But then, pairing problems And not being able to catch other sounds from the mobile phone (audio files) led to decline With Apple launching its white earbuds, the users of Bluetooth declined very fast.
  • 7. The Windows Club – Top 10 Failed Gadgets 7 Virtual Reality Headsets This was before the Oculus Rift came in. You can see the heavy headset with wires all over. Images were supposedly not clear The main reason behind the decline of this device was/are Oculus’ products that do not rely on wires and are way much lighter than this Virtual Reality Headsets
  • 8. The Windows Club – Top 10 Failed Gadgets 8 Jawbone UP The Jawbone UP was a major flop. It was supposed to be tied on wrist and count your work done (calories burned) However there were problems with syncing. Another major problem was that you could not connect the wristband to the phone without the jack you see in the image. Maybe a future version may bring in wireless version because need for connecting via headset makes it an old technology.
  • 9. The Windows Club – Top 10 Failed Gadgets 9 Huawei Talkband Was a combo of Bluetooth headset that could be worn around the wrist. Was also called SmartBand as it would also inform you about sleep, calories etc. Had different metal/plastic buttons to tell it that you are starting something, such as going to sleep. Would also work as an alarm by vibrating your wrist until you wake up! Failed as it did not provide accurate data. It missed out on some activities; Users had to use wired connection to connect to smartphone for obtaining the data.
  • 10. The Windows Club – Top 10 Failed Gadgets 10 Masunaga Wink Glasses The Masunaga Wink Glasses were for people who forgot to blink while computing. If you don’t blink for a longer time, one of the lens would fog up to provide relief to that eye. The glasses also has sensors that would notice if you dozed off working on the computer and would wake you up. The Wink Glasses failed to take off due to lack of proper promotion. Also, the cost was too high around $300.
  • 11. The Windows Club – Top 10 Failed Gadgets 11 MSN Direct Smartwatch Though not completely out of market, the smart watch from Microsoft was based on Small Personal Objects Technology, also known as SPOT. The smartwatch would connect directly to the Internet to bring you data regarding weather, stocks etc. Microsoft wanted to charge $60 per month for the services which was too much for the users who turned to smartphones.
  • 12. The Windows Club – Top 10 Failed Gadgets 12 Qualcomm Toq Smartwatch Reason it flopped was its price… otherwise it is a good device with different type of inputs, especially – voice input For sending SMS, you could use speech-to-text (Needs a little practice) Besides it would pull up information from Internet based on your voice commands. The company priced it at an high amount of $350 Another reason it flopped is that is supports only Android.
