Gadget trends in 2013 were dedicated mostly to serving very niche purposes. Whether it be an app dedicated to helping you plan the growth of your beard, or an ingredient-examining knife, the devices of this past year extended way beyond necessary functionality and into a much more abstract realm.

This is a reflection of the fact that in 2013, there is a need for almost anything. Taking this a step further is the pattern of smartphone hybrids that took the tech industry by storm. Music-mixing Android phones, smartphone watches and mood-monitoring iPhones all prove that the cellphone is no longer just a communication device. It's a full-blown technological hub.
