Top 100 Gadget Trends in 2020

From Palm-Sized Wellness Devices to Mask-Sanitizing Gadget Concepts

— January 24, 2021 — Tech
These 2020 gadget trends range from palm-sized wellness devices to mask-sanitizing gadget concepts.

The 'Manara' minimalist desk lamp is a notable example designed by Australian creative agency Project57. The lamp allows for customization to meet specific aesthetic and functional needs, including "changing the color, gradient or brightness level." Another standout is the 'Melo' breathing device that is palm-sized and compact, featuring built-in lights that help guide users through various breathing techniques during times of anxiety and stress. This device is especially notable as many consumers are dealing with uncertainties relating to the COVID-19 pandemic, and seeking new ways to adopt at-home breathing and meditation practices into their lives.
