Top 100 Gadget Trends in May

From Solar-Powered Headphones to App-Connected Kettles

— May 29, 2021 — Tech
These innovative May 2021 Gadget trends showcase today's technological advancements that help make otherwise mundane day-to-day tasks feel more exciting and less tedious.

During this past year's at-home work experience, technology has progressed to accommodate our changing needs. One noteworthy tool of this kind is the app-connected kitchen kettle. The COSORI Bluetooth Electric Gooseneck Kettle can be controlled via the VeSync app. Users can even schedule when they want the kettle to boil, making for a seamless experience during a busy workday.

For music lovers on the go, Urbanista's line of solar-powered headphones uses Powerfoyle solar cell material to power the device for almost endless use. The Swedish-designed Powerfoyle technology, dubbed Urbanista Los Angeles, even works on cloudy days.
