13 of the most ludicrous gadget names in history

The launch of the Razer Kraken E-Panda Hooligan (yes, that is their official name) got us thinking - what are some of the other gadget names that haven't quite hit the mark?

There's been a lot of rather unfortunate tech naming decisions made over the years. From the Samsung Rant to Sony's Qriosity, the gadget timeline is littered with products that twist our ears as much as our tongues.

Here's a selection we've rustled up. If we've missed any gems, do let us know in the comments.

Razer Kraken E-Panda Hooligan

Made by Razer for Eric “E-Panda” Hernandez, the session and tour drummer for Bruno Mars (who also happens to be his brother), these large over the ear headphones make even the Beats by Dre range look subtle. And that's saying something.

They're foldable, which apparently is perfect for people 'with a busy touring schedule' like E-Panda's, have 40 mm neodymium magnet drivers and are tuned for deep bass. They can be all yours for US$80 (S$99, excluding shipping cost) - complete with a brilliant angry panda logo.
