THE MOST USELESS GADGETS OF DORAEMON
1. Voice Thickener
It is a light pink potion with the special effect of freezing the user's sounds and words. Just take a sip and speak, and the words will immediately come out of your mouth at a speed of 340m/s. The damage ability of "speech" after taking this medicine is enough to defeat both the giant robot bird in Nobita and the winged warriors. However, it will be very inconvenient to use in daily life because you always have to talk to other people and it will accidentally hurt them. So, except when you need to attack someone, if you use this gadget every day, you will injure others and break things around unnecessarily.
2. The Bad Luck Diamond
The diamond was designed by Japanese scientists in the 22nd century (2116) based on the diamond of the Azuchi-Momoyama period. It was finally completed in May 2118 after 2 years of design and testing. However, the main effect of this gadget is to bring misfortune to the owner. It is because of this function that it is included as Doraemon's most useless gadget.
3. Jigen Baka Dan - Minigame
This widget acts as a miniature version of a ticking time bomb. The only difference with the gadget is that instead of destroying everything, when it explodes it stimulates the victim's nervous system, making them a joke for a short time. Therefore, this gadget is only useful when used to cause chaos in attacks. As for the group of friends of Doraemon and Nobita, it is completely useless.
4. Odd Umbrella
This Gadget used to appear when Doraemon and Nobita picked up their father from work when it was raining. This umbrella demonstrates its useless ability when opened to create rain even though it is an umbrella itself. And perhaps because of this, it is classified by Nobita and Doraemon as a useless gadget and has never been seen to be used properly in any episode.
5. Footprint Checker Spray
This Gadget has the ability to help track down perpetrators or prey if they leave footprints. However, this is also its uselessness if not used properly. If you use this gadget to check the footprint, the person who left the footprint will appear and do exactly what he did when he left the footprint. And once Nobita used it on a giant elephant footprint, the elephant appeared and attacked Nobita.
6. Jack-In-The-Box Stick
This Gadget has completely useless functionality. Stick will turn everything it touches into a "scare box", more precisely, when you open it, an object will fly out as if you were opening a real scare box. It will certainly scare the person who opens it. After opening it, it will return to normal. However, a scare box is easy to recognize, so no one would be as foolish to open this box as Nobita's friends.
7. Human Manufacturing Machine
This Gadget is a remarkable achievement of the future when it is possible to create babies without the intervention of biology and medicine. Users only need to choose the model of the newborn they like and then speak this model into the walkie-talkie connected to the machine. At that time, the machine will conduct data analysis and output materials within a minimum of 1 minute, the more material the sample requires, the longer the analysis process. After having all the necessary materials, the user will put the materials into the machine. Finally, push the trigger to operate the processing of ingredients and turn the knob to combine the organs, then the ingredients will enter the vegetative chamber and gather together at the end of the electromagnetic wire. After a period of 10-20 minutes, the newborn will become asexual. However, humans could not control the babies created by this machine so Nobita created a big problem when he decided to mass-produce babies with machines.
8. Truth Doll
When holding this doll-shaped gadget, the doll will speak out for the owner on behalf of all the thoughts in her heart. It is a fact that telling the truth is a good thing. However, too much truth will cause unnecessary trouble. Specifically, Nobita's group of friends have encountered many problems with this gadget.
9. Happiness Cards
This Gadget is a 52-card deck, just like a normal deck, in which there are 51 lucky cards and 1 extremely unlucky card. Although the deck can grant wishes, if unfortunately not able to push the deck to another person before reaching the Joker card, all deadly calamities will befall the owner of the deck. And when that's really something scary when the owner can only get rid of the Joker when someone else really wants the deck. The collection of stories that appear on this gadget has brought a lot of fear to viewers.
10. Resignation Carrot
This Gadget has a very powerful and dangerous use, but it does not bring any benefit to the user. It is in the shape of a checkered bag with 3 small carrots inside.
