Inspector Gadget was just one of the cartoons we loved when we were younger, not only for the entertaining plot line but also for the amazing gadgets he’d pull out every episode. From devices to conceal his whole body, to incredible phones with any number of cool possibilities, we’ve spent our past years wishing these things were real.
Now, it’s 2017 and technology is on a roll. We’ve put together a list of 10 of the coolest gadgets that you can actually buy nowadays, that we never thought would exist only 10 years ago. From the GeniCan, which can track and order your groceries straight from the bin, to the Amazon Dash button, which allows you to pick up essentials with just one touch, the gadgets on the market nowadays are like nothing we’ve ever seen before. Who knows where we’ll be in another decade’s time?
Also on our list we have a Bluetooth controlled pacifier, which tracks temperature and medication, and the Asus ZenFone AR, which lets you experience virtual reality on a smartphone for the first time ever. You’ll get to hear about the Wocket smart wallet and how this’ll stop you having to weigh down your standard wallet with all your different store cards, and the Ambient Umbrella, which lets you know instantaneously whether it’s about to rain or not. If we didn’t know better, we might think that we’ve been transported into a film ourselves, with all of the wonders that technological gadgets allow in this day and age.
