Top Gadgets #1 Camera Lens Cup with Coffee Cap. The official coffee cup of Spider Man

Camera Lens Coffee Cup

Yes, the camera lens cup sold out fast last Christmas as it seemed like everyone and their photographer wanted one. Some people were making fun of photographers who didn’t realize that their once exclusive and precious technology would soon be an included feature on even your cheapest throw away pay as you go cell phone.

It was a way of saying things like:

“At least those old camera lenses are still good for something”
“Now that 90% of the population is competing with you on a freelance basis, you should probably get used to serving coffee since your profession is obsolete”

We’ll have to see if they can maintain their “Top Gadget” status through the summer of 2012.

Whichever your celebration, water lanterns are a great theme.
