The origins of the word “gadget” trace back to the 19th century. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, there is anecdotal (not necessarily true) evidence for the use of “gadget” as a placeholder name for a technical item whose precise name one can’t remember since the 1850s; with Robert Brown’s 1886 book Spunyarn and Spindrift, A sailor boy’s log of a voyage out and home in a China tea-clipper containing the earliest known usage in print. The etymology of the word is disputed.

By the second half of the twentieth century, the term “gadget” had taken on the connotations of compactness and mobility. In the 1965 essay “The Great Gizmo” (a term used interchangeably with “gadget” throughout the essay), the architectural and design critic Reyner Banham defines the item as:
With all of our devices, it’s really important to stay organized – especially if you are a professional on the go. The Amatory storage bag does just that. It keeps your devices and cables in separate pockets so that you can find them easily. You no longer have to sort through the bottom on your carry on for cables, devices, and chargers.

A discussion arose at the Plymouth meeting of the Devonshire Association in 1916 when it was suggested that this word should be recorded in the list of local verbal provincialisms. Several members dissented from its inclusion on the ground that it is in common use throughout the country; and a naval officer who was present said that it has for years been a popular expression in the service for a tool or implement, the exact name of which is unknown or has for the moment been forgotten. I have also frequently heard it applied by motor-cycle friends to the collection of fitments to be seen on motor cycles. ‘His handle-bars are smothered in gadgets’ refers to such things as speedometers, mirrors, levers, badges, mascots, &c., attached to the steering handles. The ‘jigger’ or short-rest used in billiards is also often called a ‘gadget’; and the name has been applied by local platelayers to the ‘gauge’ used to test the accuracy of their work. In fact, to borrow from present-day Army slang, ‘gadget’ is applied to ‘any old thing.'

And when nobody’s home, Alexa will automatically turn the Nest off to help conserve energy.
Essentially a weird-looking, kitchen-centric Amazon Echo with a projector (it’s a Magic 8-Ball for the 21st century), the Egg not only looks up receipes you ask for, but projects step-by-step videos to help you make them. There’s a similar concept assistant from Bosch, but it’s not nearly as goofy looking, which is part of Hello Egg’s charm. If it rolls its eye at my cooking skills, though, it’s gonna end up scrambled.
