With new gadgets and products hitting the market every day, the best ones can get lost in all of the noise.
We’ve searched the globe and put together an updated list of some of the coolest products that you’ve probably never heard of. Many of these started as crowdfunding projects that have gone on to sell millions and some have even won awards for design and innovation.
Here are our Top Picks for the most popular gadgets of 2019. Our advice? Grab these now because they tend to sell out fast!
1. Amazon Echo – Smart Speaker with Voice Control
“Alexa… how are you so awesome?”
Chances are you know at least one person who has an Amazon Echo (or 2 or 3), and those who have one say they can’t live without it. (I know… 1st world problems, right?)
Seriously though, Echo is pretty amazing. Amazon has truly led the way with “smart home” technology and voice recognition. Even if you’re not up to speed with the whole smart home thing and only use the Echo for playing music, $99 is a steal.
Echo makes a great gift for anyone because of its super-wide appeal — and even if they already have one, you can be sure they’d love to have another one in their house. Learn More
2. Peeps – “Carbon NanoTech” Eyewear Cleaner
Seriously, why is it sooo dang hard to get glasses clean? Cloths, wipes, sprays… your shirt… (you know you do it!) You just end up chasing the crud around your lenses.
Peeps cleans lenses unlike anything else on the market.
How? By utilizing the same innovative molecular-carbon cleaning technology used by NASA on their ultra-high-definition optics.
The dual carbon microfiber cleaning pads actually eliminate oil and fingerprints (instead of smearing it around, like cloths and sprays).
When you’re finished cleaning, the patented case recharges the cleaning pads with new carbon molecules for the next use. (Independently lab tested for up to 500 cleanings.)
3. Apple AirPods – All-Day Audio on the Go
Unless you’ve been living in a cave, I’m sure you’ve heard people raving about their AirPods. They’re everywhere now and they’ve quickly become the hottest must-have for iPhone owners and Apple fans.
While wireless headphones are nothing new, Apple raised the bar with compact size, sound quality, battery life, “Hey Siri” access, and now active noise cancellation with AirPods Pro.
4. Bondic – Liquid Plastic “Welder”
Let’s face it, most glues and adhesives kind of suck… They’re messy and they never seem to hold like they should. Bondic isn’t glue.
Bondic was invented by a dentist who was inspired by the incredibly-strong, UV-cured bonding compounds he used on the job. He teamed up with a chemical engineer and together they came up with an ingenious liquid plastic “welding” compound that’s 50X stronger than glue.
You apply the liquid formula to the damaged area, shine the special UV light on it, and in 4 seconds it hardens into a rock-solid layer of clear plastic. You can use it to bond, build, fix and even fill virtually anything. Once hardened, you can sand, shape and paint it.
5. KeySmart – The “Next Level” Keychain
I never really thought that keys could be sexy, but I stand corrected. KeySmart has definitely pulled it off!
I hate having a big spiky wad of keys in my pocket that jingles like Santa’s sleigh when I walk, so when I first saw KeySmart I knew I had to have one. (I actually started off with the standard model and I loved it so much I upgraded to the fancier Titanium model.)
Don’t you think it’s time to step up your key chain game?
6. KeySmart PRO – Never Lose Your Keys Again
Just when we thought KeySmart couldn’t get any more awesome, they stepped it up with KeySmart PRO.
The PRO version takes key organization to a new level with integrated Tile™ locator and rechargeable LED flashlight.
What this means is you can now use the Tile™ app on your smartphone to locate your keys (or even use your KeySmart to ring/locate your phone).
7. FIXD – Prevent $1,000s in Car Repairs
If you’ve ever taken your car in for a simple oil change, only to be broadsided with a long list of recommended repairs, it’s easy to feel like you’re being taken advantage of.
FIXD was invented by a group of engineering students at Georgia Tech who were tired of feeling pushed around by auto mechanics. They came up with a way for people to use their smartphones to see what’s going on with their car, in plain English.
Their invention has transformed how millions of people worldwide take care of their vehicles. It’s like having a mechanic in the car with you at all times.
I have three FIXD — one in each of our family’s vehicles. They’re awesome!
8. PhotoStick – Instantly Backup Your Photos
When was the last time you backed up your photos? Think about it… If your computer crashed today, how much would you lose?
Everyone knows they should keep backup copies of everything, but few people actually do. (140,000 computers crash every week in the U.S. alone, and data recovery companies make a fortune from people who are desperate to get their precious photo memories back!) …and don’t get me started on “the cloud.”
That’s why an awesome gadget called ThePhotoStick has been hugely popular this past year. It’s the easiest backup solution I’ve seen.
All you do is plug the tiny USB drive into your PC or Mac, hit ‘GO’ and it automatically syncs copies of all your pictures and videos to the drive.
No special software to install, no searching for files by hand through every folder on your computer—ThePhotoStick does it all for you and nothing slips through the cracks or gets lost.
9. iMemories – Digitize & Save Your Memories Forever
If you’re like me, you have several bins full of old home videos and family photos stashed away, gathering dust. Did you know those precious memories are in danger of being lost forever?
I learned the hard way that VHS tapes lose picture and sound over time, slowly turning to static. Make sure you transfer to digital now so you can preserve and enjoy your family memories on any modern device.
iMemories transfers all of your old home videos, photos and slides to digital so you can re-live and share your memories with family and friends.
To get started, you just send your home movies and photos to iMemories using one of their SafeShip Kits and they do all the work for you. Once digitized, you can download everything to your computer, watch and share online, and even make DVDs/Blu-rays.
iMemories makes a fantastic gift and is always a hit with moms and family!
10. ScreenKlean – Keep Your Screens Crystal Clear
“This little piggy had a smudgy iPad.” I admit it… Gunky, finger-printy screens are a huge pet peeve of mine and I’m always trying in vain to wipe off my phone with my shirt to avoid looking like a slob. It never looks clean.
ScreenKlean uses patented carbon molecular technology to safely remove dirt, oil, fingerprints and bacteria from ALL screens. (NASA uses this technology on the International Space Station.)
11. Starscope – Precision Pocket Monocular
Ever wished you had superhero vision? I know I have! The ability to zoom in on anything to reveal every detail would be sooo awesome…
The Starscope is kinda like that. Whether you’re out for a hike, at a sporting event, hunting, stargazing or just trying to see what that crazy neighbor down the street is doing, you need the Starscope.
This thing helps you see for miles with precision and depth for the best views. Plus you can use the 10x zoom as a telephoto lens for your phone and capture amazing photos. The Starscope’s high-definition lenses are made from multi-coated BAK4 glass, just like the most expensive camera lenses and binoculars.
12. TikiTunes – Tiki Torch Wireless Speakers
Quite possibly the coolest wireless speaker ever made, TikiTunes is a Bluetooth speaker that also transform the atmosphere with the soothing ambiance of a tiki torch!
And it’s not just a pretty speaker, the sound quality is impressive with surprisingly punchy bass for its size and you can easily pair two speakers together for true stereo sound.
The warm LED light flickers just like real flames and it works with or without music.
13. FitTrack – Health Tracking Smart Scale
Easily the world’s smartest scale, FitTrack measures, tracks, and trends your health data over time. It’s the first and only scale of its kind. Step on the scale with your bare feet and get 17 real-time measurements. How cool is that?
14. Safety Discs – Protect Yourself on the Road
I don’t consider myself to be paranoid, but having a family has definitely made me more safety conscious, especially with four drivers in our household. I learned that over 1,000 people die every year in roadside accidents, simply because oncoming traffic didn’t see them. That statistic freaked me out.
I don’t know about you, but I surely don’t want something as stupid as changing a flat tire to take the life of someone I love — especially when it’s so easily preventable!
A friend showed me these 1Tac Safety Discs and I think they’re super smart. Many first-responders have started carrying these LED discs because they can be seen from over 5,000 feet away, they’re waterproof, and they’re durable enough to withstand being run over by a truck and still continue to shine.
15. GlowBowl – Turn Your Toilet Into a Night Light
Does this sound familiar? You shuffle your way to the bathroom in the middle of the night and you hit that light switch. BAM! Suddenly it’s like you’re staring at the sun. Good luck getting back to sleep…
GlowBowl transforms your toilet into a soothing night light and completely redeems your night time bathroom experience. It’s a funky concept, but really quite brilliant! Trust me — once you try it you’ll never go back to the “dark ages!”
And if you have kids, you know how they all seem to be scared of dark — especially the bathroom at night. GlowBowl turns ‘potty time’ into ‘party time,’ which can really help with night time fears and potty training!
16. PhotoStick MOBILE – Instantly Backup Photos & Videos Stored on Your Phone
Ever get the dreaded “Cannot Take Photo” message because your phone is full? Yep, me too.
…and if you lost or broke your phone, what pictures and videos would you lose? (Like the time my daughter dropped my iPhone into the Pacific Ocean while on vacation… Every photo from our trip, gone forever.)
ThePhotoStick MOBILE backs up all the photos and videos stored on your smartphone. Boom, easy!
17. EyeQue – Test Your Vision At Home
Wait… you can test your vision and update your prescription glasses at home? Yep! Check out EyeQue.
EyeQue’s patented, award-winning Personal Vision Tracker is the world’s only highly-accurate and affordable at-home vision test. It was invented by MIT graduate and Atomic Physicist, Dr. John Serri.
EyeQue uses MIT-patented technology that’s been extensively tested and proven to be highly accurate. Over 90% of users who ordered glasses said their results were actually better than previous office visit results.
18. Dodow – Fall Asleep 2.5X Faster
“Busy” has become the new normal and with everything we’ve all got going on in our lives it can be really hard to switch off your mind at night. That’s where Dodow can help.
Dodow is a metronome-light scientifically designed to block out overactive thought patterns and lull you into a deep peaceful sleep 2.5X faster than other methods.
By focusing on Dodow’s mesmerizing rhythmic light, your breathing rate slows, your busy mind quiets down, and you’re quickly lulled into a deep, restful sleep. It also retrains your brain to naturally fall asleep on its own again.
19. ChargeHubGO – Charge up to 4 Devices Fast
Mashable calls ChargeHubGO “The only battery pack you’ll ever need.” And we agree!
ChargeHubGO is the ONLY portable charger that features patented SmartSpeed® Technology and a wireless charging pad for super-fast, convenient charging. (Plus having two built-in charging cables is awesome.)
20. Neck Hammock – Relieve Neck Pain in Minutes
I have to admit, when I first saw The Neck Hammock I thought “what the heck is THAT thing?”
But then I watched their video…
As someone who’s struggled with neck pain on and off for years, the gentle neck decompression provided by The Neck Hammock looked pretty heavenly — and reviews were good — so I bought one to try.
It’s been awesome! The sensation is hard to describe… it kind of feels like your head is floating while your neck is gently stretched and tension is relieved. For me, a 5–10 minute session is all it takes to kill my neck pain and headaches.
21. BetterBack – Fight Back Pain and Bad Posture
Back pain sucks. But if you suffer with it, you don’t need me to tell you how awful it is. When your back is acting up, it hurts to stand… it hurts to sit… it hurts to walk… it even hurts to lie down.
You may recognize BetterBack from the deal they landed on SharkTank. They invented a simple device that corrects your posture and relieves back pain in 15 minutes or less. It also retrains your body’s muscle memory to help prevent pain from recurring.
Pretty cool, right? Lori from SharkTank liked it so much she invested in the company.
22. Safety Siren Alarm – Instant Attacker Defense
This simple key chain could save your life. It’s the 1Tac Safety Siren and it’s small but mighty! Pull the pin and it puts out an ear-splitting alarm that scares off attackers and thieves.
Even if you’re walking to your car in a dimly-lit parking lot, you’re never really alone. 100,000+ are calling this simple device their “invisible bodyguard.”
23. Chill Can – Keep Your Drink Ice Cold, Start to Finish
You know that first sip experience… Fresh out of the cooler, icy cold, divine. But then like 30 seconds later you’re stuck with a drink that’s as warm as the sweat rolling down the back of your neck. Yuck!
Meet the 1Hydro Chill Can. It uses the power of double-walled vacuum insulation to keep your drink frosty cold from first sip to the last. Never drink a warm beer again!
24. StankStix – Remove Nasty Odors Fast
You may have heard about the incredibly powerful (and natural) germ-fighting powers of silver — yep, the precious metal. StankStix leverage that power to absorb and eliminate the strongest of odors around your home.
StankStix are so effective they won Shark Tank and Today Show’s “Next Big Thing.”
25. REACT – 7-in-1 Car Safety Device
The REACT is a phone charger for your car that’s actually a 7-in-1 safety device. It was designed by auto safety experts with features to help drivers escape their vehicle in an emergency
In a crash, seat belts can jam, doors can get stuck, and windows won’t budge. What would you do?
For years, experts have urged drivers to carry window smashers and seat belt cutters in their vehicles, but the problem is, even if you are one of the few drivers that carry these safety devices, you probably have yours in your glove box (or your trunk) — dangerously far out of reach during in an accident.
Safety devices are useless if you can’t reach them in an emergency!
What’s ingenious about REACT is that it works as a USB charger for your phone, so you keep it plugged into your dash — always within reach when precious seconds count.
