From Sci-Fi Shavers to Origami-Inspired Delivery Drones

 - Oct 9, 2017
Bleep bloop bleep — if one listens hard enough, that's exactly what they might hear coming from the October 2017 gadget trends. Everyone knows that gadgets can be pretty noisy, and whether robotic toys, digital accessories, household appliances, or anything else, the bleeps, bloops, and blips emitted show that the product in question is undeniably a gadget.

Some gadgets make noise on purpose, while other gadgets make noise as a product of their functionality. Gadgets designed with the intention of making noise this month include the always popular Bluetooth speakers. One speaker highly unlikely to bleep or bloop, thanks to its superior sound quality, is the Bose Soundlink Micro Speaker. It delivers impressive sound while also being small and hardy enough to take almost anywhere.

A product more likely to bleep and bloop, though not guaranteed to do so, is EPFL Lab's Delivery Drone, which is designed with origami as an inspiration. It folds up when not in use to make it more space efficient.
