Even when we know we need to follow a budget or save for the future, it can be impossible to resist a cool gadget. We all have toys and gizmos that catch our eye that we need to buy immediately — some of them are even useful! Every so often a new gadget ends up becoming an essential part of our lives.
With the central role that tech plays in our lives today, most of the leading gadgets are in the world of tech. In this article, we’ll give you a rundown of some of the most exciting gadgets that are available today, it’s a sneak peek at the future of tech.
Google Pixel Tablet
When tablets were first released, they were an instant hit. While each new release doesn’t receive the same hype as they did in the early years, occasionally there is one that catches our attention. The new Google Pixel Tablet is that special new release.
Aesthetically, the Google Pixel Tablet fits in perfectly with the Google Home Display. This makes a pleasant change from having a series of mismatched devices around the house. In fact, it can be used as an in-home display device when not in use as a tablet.
One of the features that sets it apart from some of the other tablets on the market is its app functionality. This seems so basic since apps are something most of us use constantly throughout the day. It’s ideal for gaming apps. As playing online casino games has exploded in popularity as a hobby, playing on a casino’s dedicated app ensures that players have the best experience.
Anker Soundcore Space One
The first time you listen to your favorite album on high-quality speakers or headphones, it completely blows your mind. The best music sounds even better when it’s coming through great speakers. These headphones provide that high-quality sound without sacrificing any of the good looks.
Beats headphones received a lot of hype when they hit the market, but that has died down as consumers have realized that they don’t offer sound quality to match their price tag. Anker doesn’t generate as much buzz, but audiophiles love them. The new Soundcore Space One series combines the audio quality that Anker is known for with improved noise cancelling technology.
If earbuds are more your style, Anker has also just released the Liberty 4 NC. These earbuds have a 10/50-hour battery life and LDAC technology for improved sound. They also feature Anker’s noise cancelling technology.
We’re never too old for toys, no matter what we tell ourselves. Just look at the market for Funko Pops! and gaming figurines. The Petoi Bittle is a toy with more than enough tech to make it an easy purchase to justify. It is a small robot dog that can be purchased as either a completed model or as a kit.
There are two kit options: STEM or Robotics. It also comes in three color schemes. It is a practical teaching tool for beginner coding. For inexperienced coders, it is a fun way to see how code translates into movement. While many projects to teach coding stick to block-based systems, the Petoi Bittle also supports C++ and Python coding.
Sage Bambino Plus
We’ve come a long way from the days of the simple coffee maker. The ease and speed of instant coffee means that it’ll always have its fans, but we’ve entered an era of mass coffee connoisseurship.
It seems like every few years there’s a new way to brew the best coffee. The French press had its heyday and was followed by the even simpler classic pour over. The Chemex swept the coffee world with its combination of science and form and was joined by the AeroPress. The Moka pot has always had its loyal adherents too.
The Sage Bambino Plus is 2023’s answer to the perfect coffee question. It unites the worlds of tech and coffee into an ideal cup. The machine has the smart features that have been missing, including pre-infusion settings, an automatic milk texturizer and a three-second heating time. It takes the stress out of coffee making.
Ekster Parliament Smart Wallet
Little has changed with the design of the wallet for a very long time. The Ekster Parliament Smart Wallet brings the wallet forward into the 21st century. Made of high-quality leather in grey, it looks attractive enough to buy even without the added tech elements.
This smart wallet has an RFID coating that protects your cards from identity theft. It also has a unique mechanism to eject cards from the aluminum casing inside the wallet and a feature that many of us have probably been dreaming of for years — a Bluetooth tracker. In fact, it has a solar-powered Bluetooth tracker, so you never have to worry about recharging it.
U-Turn Audio Orbit (Gen 2)
Vinyl records have always had their devotees, but they’ve made their way back to the mainstream. This is mainly because the audio quality of vinyl simply can’t be matched or fully captured by other audio formats. One issue with many turntables, however, is that they lean too heavily into the 1970s aesthetic and are too bulky.
U-Turn Audio makes turntables that embrace a modern, minimalist aesthetic without being boring or generic. The tech goes beyond the phono preamp to all parts of the design. The arm, for example, is a single piece of magnesium which has low resonance while also being incredibly durable and stable.
These are ideal for music lovers who want the ability to customize their turntable. It is available in seven different colors, five powder-coated and two solid wood options. There are also four options for the turntable itself, including Basic, Plus, Custom and Special. The price does increase with each level of customization, so that is a factor worth keeping in mind.
