Derogatory term used to describe someone of Japanese descent. Derived from the fact that these people are always gizmo-ing about and making crazy devices to do all sorts of perverse things that only the Japanese could think of.

Try calling your Japanese friend a gizmo, and you'll see just how right it feels.

Watch any popular Japanese television show for excellent examples of Gizmos doing what they do best.

also gismo, 'a thingy', a gadget, useful object; the term 'gizmo' may also refer to things of abstract nature which are helpfull (vide: 3D Graphics Designing in #d Studio Max, or Computer Programming)
I got this funny gizmo from my girl. What does it do? Hell knows but it's nice.

By modifying the gizmo you affect the object attached to it.
