I can't help it. I love gadgets. Some are more helpful than others. I have a P-38 government issue can opener. I never was in the scouts or military but if need be I can open a can in a pinch. Other gadgets are specific. While going through a tool box I found a socket for removing an oil sending unit for a jeep we no longer own.

I am holding a Sekonic L-508 light meter. Tool of the trade you say. Sure, but it is a great gadget. I purchased it used from a photographer in Missoula. It was well used. So much I had to re-label the controls on the front. Some of my cameras do not even have light meters so it is handy to have around. While it won't open a can of soup, It can read the light falling on the can. from across the room if necessary.
