The new Waterpik Sidekick has ultra-compact and convenient design. Dubbed the Waterpik Sidekick Water Flosser, it's great for travel and makes it easy to water floss anywhere, anytime. As you see in Dick's video below, it collapses easily for storage and fits in almost any purse or briefcase. It comes with a new flossing stylus with integrated classic tip and swivel handle. The tips are not changeable, so this is designed for a single user. The company says it removes up to 99.9% of plaque from treated areas. One neat feature is the global voltage plug.

Coach seats on an airplane are uncomfortable enough, but having to fight over the small armrest between coach seats makes it even worse. There's a neat solution for that. Soarigami doubles the existing armrest space and provides a friendly barrier, so you and your seatmate can comfortably share fairly. However, the company strongly suggests that before using the device, you simply ask your seat-mate neighbor if they're willing to share. Dick guesses that when you show them the Soarigami, they'll be very interested in sharing it.

How clean are airplane seats? That's where Seat Sitters come in. They are disposable seat covers that are easy to pack or carry with you. Great to use on airplanes, at movie theaters, special events, or anywhere where you want to be sure you're sitting on a clean seat. The company says they're perfect for cold, flu and allergy season and make an excellent guard against contact with peanut and food allergens. The kit includes a disposable tray table cover (but there's no way to secure it to the tray on an airplane), two sanitary wipes and one allergy mask.

If you like waffles, then the Giz Wiz has a gadget for you. The Kalorik Easy Pour Waffle Maker is very easy to use and cooks your waffles at a 45 degree angle! Simply use the included measuring cup to pour batter into the spout of the closed waffle maker that sits at a 45 degree angle. It looks like that would be a disaster, but a rugged gasket holds the batter firmly in place and the angle makes it possible to distribute the batter evenly.

Dickie D recently bought the MUTE BUTTON after watching a video of it sent in by Mo, a big fan of The Giz Wiz Show. It solves a problem we all have, and that's the need to lower or shut the sound of the TV when the phone rings, or someone shouts to you from another room. Finding the “Mute” button on the typical remote is no easy chore. It's worse if you're getting up in years and you're looking for the “mute” bottom in a darkened room. You need 20/20 eyesight to find that mini mute button. Enter the giant Smash Mute button!

Chemistry Magic Invisible Test Tube Kit. (All the components are in the kit, in a smaller size than the video demo.) You take a test tube filled with liquid, and a measuring cup also full of a liquid. (It was premixed, so not sure exactly what the liquid was.) When the test tube is lowered into the liquid, all of the test tubes below the liquid line instantly disappeared! (You'll see it in the video below.)

At Toy Fair 2018, Dick saw Backyard Brains' Human-Human Interface. With just a bit of wiring and by applying a few sticky pads to his arm he was about to learn that someone else's brain could make his arm move! Here's how the company puts it: "With our electrophysiology setup, you will learn exciting neuroscience concepts first-hand as your brain sends an electrical impulse to your arm's muscles, telling them to move. When your muscles move, this generates an even larger electrical signal.
