[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]From the magical “Hopter” and wondrous “Time Machine”, everything that has come out from that pouch has been a beautiful and unforgettable part of our childhood memories. Let’s take a look at Doraemon’s main gadget and tools.

Dokodemo Door

One of Doraemon’s most commonly used gadgets is the dokodemo door, a door which allows travel to anywhere by simply going through the door.


One of the main modes of transportation for the various characters is the take-copter, which combines the words taketombo (bamboo dragonfly, the Japanese name for the bamboo-copter), and part of the word herikoput which means helicopter.



Time Machine

The entrance to Doraemon’s time machine is in Nobita’s desk drawer. The time machine looks like a simple platform with a control console. Doraemon is often seen piloting the time machine. Dorami has her own time machine shaped like a tulip, suggesting a variety of models available in the future.

Clothes Changing Camera/Dress Up Camera

A camera that uses a picture of clothing instead of film, and changes the clothes of the person in the viewfinder to the clothing in the picture. It may also be used with no picture or an incomplete picture, with embarrassing results.



Translation Jelly

A piece of konjac jelly which enables a person to understand and speak any known language in the universe. The effect begins after the person ingests the jelly, but the duration of the effect is unknown.


Air Cannon

A gun barrel worn on the arm used to fire a powerful burst of air which can knock out the victim when the user says “bang”.


Pass Loop

A loop which creates a passage through a solid object such as a wall when placed upon it. Nobita has used this to escape from when his mother locked him in a storage shed.


Small Light/Big Light/Gulliver Tunnel

Small light is a lamp similar to a flashlight that will shrink objects and people to minuscule sizes. Its opposite is the big light, which enlarges objects and people. Another tool that is used in a similar capacity is the Gulliver Tunnel, which causes a person to grow or shrink depending on which entrance he takes.

Time cloth/Time Furoshiki

Another frequently used gadget, the time cloth has the ability to advance or reverse time depending on which of its two different colored sides are used.


Fourth-Dimensional Pocket/4D Pocket/Doraemon’s Magical Bottomless Pouch


The inside of this pocket connects to the fourth dimension and acts like a wormhole. It is usually shown attached to Doraemon’s abdomen. Doraemon has a spare pocket which connects to the same location. Nobita has used the spare pocket on ocasion, often for mischievous purposes but sometimes for helpful purposes.
