The Next Big Thing: Buzzy Mini


Scott: Moving onto your Friday faves, starting with our Next Big Thing, which you might be a fan of if you hate going to the doctor’s office as much as I do. But first, let’s see what you thought about last week’s idea.

We told you about the translation glasses that could take foreign words that you are looking at, like, say, on a menu, and display the translated version of the word on a viewfinder instantly, turning a tourist’s nightmare into a dream.

So, is it the next big thing? Eighty percent of you said, ‘Yes, word up!’ But twenty percent of you said, ‘No, actually I am at a loss for words right now.’

This week, we are introducing a friendly face in what can sometimes be the scary world of medicine. Now, lots of you – and me – have a fear of needles in the doctor’s office. Well, this one is for us.

Meet the Buzzy Mini. You take the cute little guy and put it right above the area where you are about to get a shot and it uses a combo of cold temperatures and quick vibrations to distract your body and brain from your injection, and voila! Needles aren’t so painful or scary anymore. The Buzzy Mini is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand and available in three different designs. Plus, you can get it for under $40.

So, what do you think? Is the Buzzy Mini the next big thing? Well, head to and vote. And don’t forget to tell us what you think.

    I am terrified of needles, but since we have to get them we might as well have something to distract us. I think that the Buzzy Mini IS the next big thing.

    I think that it would be good for kids younger than the age of six should get them but otherwise they are not very good.
