For all my geeks who tool around in their own car (your girl geeksugar is a public-transportation dependent) and live in a city, this might be the perfect gadget. You set this Parking Meter Alarm when you park your car and it counts down the time you've put money in the meter for — and it'll beep at five-minute intervals when it's about to run out, so you can be ticket free.
It even holds a stack of quarters for the meter! But is it something you could do on your own? If I drove, I know I'd have it, and I'd also have no qualms about letting a robot park my car!
