Let’s face it, you are getting old and it isn’t pretty. You are starting to think that Walmart Levi’s aren’t all that bad and definitely affordable. Your cologne collection is limited to all of them simply smelling like musk. The idea of socks with sandals is starting to sound not only comfortable but stylish. The worst part is you feel you had a crazy night when you have made it through the evening news and not fallen asleep. Don’t get Gadgets 4 Guys wrong, we appreciate a good old man mustache as much as the next person but there are things about getting old we don’t like. One of the aspects of getting older is your memory begins to slip a little and it is harder to recall what you did the day before.
A classic game that laid claim to being able to help you improve your memory was Simon. It consisted of a few different colored buttons that would go off in a sequential order that you were then required to follow. When you messed up (which was much sooner than it probably should have been) you were given a loud alarm that alerted everybody in the room you were a failure. It was annoying, it was degrading, and it was super addictive. To this day if we see a Simon electronic game we are greeted with an urge that can’t be ignored and forced to pick up the game and play it. No more waiting until your friends kid leaves it at your house, you can create your own Simon belt buckle. Over at If Industries they built a prototype of a belt buckle that will keep people entertained for hours. They took a mini Simon electronic game and with some quick changes were able to make it into a belt buckle. You can make it into a time consuming activity but you want to be careful that you don’t look like you are playing with yourself while trying to defeat Simon (we know, that sounded weird when we wrote it).
