For those living in the first world, the word “need” often takes on a new meaning.

Still, there are those products that clearly fall into either the “need” or “want” category. Despite this, sometimes a product is invented that is so intriguing, so convenient and just downright amazing, that it becomes hard to tell the difference between whether it is a need or just a want.
