LumiPad Message Pad, for times when your memory’s on the blink

If I had a nickel for every time I saw a product that I desperately need, well, I would have a lot of nickels, but probably not enough money to buy any of the products. My latest needy gadget crush? The
LumiPad Message Pad. It’s a magnetic message board that you stick to your fridge and write on like a dry-erase board.
Yeah, yeah. Really interesting. But I’m not done—the special inks included make it so that your note will actually glow when the message pad is switched to the On position. Even better, there’s a motion sensor in the pad that will make it so when someone gets close enough, the message will start blinking (probably not the best idea if you have any epileptic people in your house).
I’m salivating at the prospect of all of the things I could do with the LumiPad. I could get my roommates to take the trash out; I could remind myself to buy important groceries; I could teach the cat to wash the dishes. Well, I’d settle for two out of three.
