A magazine competition invited people to come up with "invented" inventions of the cyber-age.
For example, a solar powered clothes drier (a rope) and a hand-held word processor (a pencil). Can you guess what this is?


It is a portable arcade. A hand-held amusement resource with no cartridges or batteries. Access games of speed, dexterity, memory, cunning. Produce magical effects or construct lofty towers. Some games can increase your income.

Feb 22, 2006

Fun and easy -- I actually got this one. Easy is a good thing when I'm feeling stupid over not being able to figure out so many of the others. It's a good thing to be successful once in a while. Keep them coming!

This one was a bit easy. I think if you had reversed the deck of cards with the clotes dryer one it would have been a bit harder

scallioAus*
Feb 22, 2007

Okay, I feel rather dumb after reading all the other comments! You see, I didn't get the correct answer. I guessed our MINDS or BRAINS.

Very good teaser. How about a sequel and including more questions in the same teaser. Perhaps 4 or 5.
scallioAus*
Feb 22, 2007

I just realized that our minds would not be "hand-held"! Oops again.

Feb 22, 2007

I didn't think it was easy till I saw the answer. Guess my backache is affecating my brain this morning. Good teaser! I'm going to put it into my favorites.

Fun one, and so true. I was brought up playing cards and making puzzles on the dining room table. Still love both. Thanks for a good teaser.
phazt*us*
Feb 22, 2007

This one definetly made me smile. "invented inventions". haha.. perhaps someone could write more like this but a little bit more complex. This calls for perception from a complex BRAINGLE!!
tamjpAus*
Feb 22, 2007

Clever
breathesunshineAus*
Feb 22, 2007

I got this before I was even done reading it! Fun teaser.

Invented Inventions Very nice idea, and the explanation was crisp and clear, although i thought it was a bit too easy. I'd love to see more!

I guessed PSP or DS until I saw that it said no batteries XP
iggy39Aus*
Feb 22, 2013

I didn't get it. Monoply came to mind then I cancelled that one thought. Just cards didn't come to mind and I have played plenty of cards games in my lifetime. Thought it was a very good quiz even though I didn't get it.

Easy, but still fun!
