Top 100 Gadget Trends in March

From Autonomous Film Drones to Wearable Keyboards

— March 24, 2018 — Tech
Especially after looking at the panoply of devices and products among the March 2018 gadget trends, it's odd to think that gadgets simply didn't exist at one point. If one defines a gadget as something that operates through technological manipulation — or even more specifically, electronic technological manipulation — then gadgets as a category have only really been around for about a century, if that.

Regardless of gadgets' ontology, today's products are dazzling. The Skydio R1, for example, is a drone that automatically keeps itself at the right distance and pace to record footage of a moving subject, making it capable of recording anything from a cycling excursion to a trip through the ski park. Further, the Oton smart glasses can analyze text in the real world and read it directly to its wearer — an obvious benefit for people with vision impairments.
