We did all the hard work for you this year and put together an exclusive list of the 23 coolest, hottest selling gadgets that you probably don’t know about. (Most of these are less than $60)
With the amount of new products coming out every day, it’s no wonder you probably haven’t heard about some of these. Many of them were first started through crowdfunding (like the Neck Hammock) and then have continued to go viral.
You can add them to your own wishlist or get them as gifts for your loved ones! Simply click the links in the article if you want to learn more about them or buy them. There’s a product for everyone in this list. We expect many of these to sell out before thanksgiving!
This first gadget on our list sold and shipped more than 1.5 million units worldwide in 2018 and has anyone who wears glasses scrambling to buy it before it sells out. It was designed specifically for cleaning eyeglasses, sunglasses and reading glasses, Peeps is the world's safest and most tested lens cleaning technology. Peeps uses a unique invisible carbon cleaning compound to safely and easily clean your glasses from oily fingerprint smudges to dust and facial oils. The invisible carbon technology actually repels dirt and oil, protecting your glasses in the future. Believe it or not this is the very same lens cleaning technology used by NASA.
It's extremely easy to use, you simply slide out the brush that wipes all the dust and debris off your lenses and next you use the tweezer shaped cleaning tool that has two carbon infused microfiber pads. The two pads will clean both sides of your glasses at the same time and are specifically designed to fit the grooves of your lenses (any type of glasses).
Once you're done just slide the brush back inside the cap and it will automatically recharge and clean the pads for your next use. Forget about traditional reusable microfiber cloths, with Peeps you start with a fresh set of pads every time and it never expires.
Thanks to its ultra-slim design, Peeps can be kept in your purse, golf bag, back pack, home or office to use at a moment’s notice! It’s the ultimate go anywhere lens cleaner!
Have you ever gone to an auto repair shop for an oil change, only to have the mechanic say you need a new transmission? Or has the mysterious “check engine” light come on, and next thing you know the mechanic has a list of expensive engine parts that need replacing? Unfortunately, many mechanics know taking advantage of people is easy given their lack of knowledge about car maintenance needs.
But there’s a new device you simply plug into your car that tells you exactly what’s wrong with it. If you own a car built after 1996 then you can use this brilliant new device called FIXD to instantly diagnose any car problems. This means the next time your “Check Engine Light” happens to come on, you’ll know exactly what the issue is and the mechanics won’t be able to lie to you!
All you have to do is plug FIXD into your onboard diagnostics port (which is usually located under the dash below the steering wheel) and then download the free FIXD app on your smartphone (Apple or Android). The app will let you know if there are any specific issues with your car in plain and easy to understand language. Not only that, but it will also provide you with an estimate of the cost to fix any issues and will let you know what the consequences are if you continue to drive with the problem. You also have the ability to reset your check engine light in the app with the click of a button.
Here's a unique device you probably haven't heard of... It's called Dodow and it's completely disrupting the billion dollar sleeping pill industry worldwide. Instead of taking harmful and toxic pills to try and fall asleep (that often have you feeling groggy the next morning), millions of people are now turning to Dodow.
Today, the problem of too little sleep, and the quest for more of it, is as acute as ever: 27 percent of people in a new Consumer Reports survey of 4,023 U.S. adults said they had trouble falling asleep or staying asleep most nights, and 68 percent—or an estimated 164 million Americans—struggled with sleep at least once a week.
That must be why the Dodow device has been surging in online sales these past few months. It's been scientifically proven to not only help you get to sleep faster, but to also give you a more deep and restful sleep.
It’s super simple, really. You put the circular little device on your nightstand, and it emits a soft blue light that glows in a rhythmic pattern. All you have to do is turn it on, breathe in and out with the light, and BOOM. Asleep.
Dodow was created by two insomniacs from Europe who were at their wit’s end with sleepless nights. Using what they call a “light metronome,” Dodow actually retrains your brain on how to fall asleep, which means it isn’t just some temporary fix. Lack of proper sleep has been linked to obesity, a higher chance of death and cardiac events, diabetes and a whole list of other health problems. You owe it to yourself to give Dodow a try and get a good nights sleep!
Let’s face it, as we get older, we seem to misplace things more often. But when you attach this coin-sized tracking device to an item you can see exactly where it is at all times. The XY Find It app enlists the help of millions of users to locate your lost bag, bike or even dog. The XY Find It app displays how far you are from your keys or purse you dropped, and it will sound the alarm to help you pinpoint its exact location. If you realize you left your bag in another location, all the other XY Find It users (millions of people) in the network are used to pinpoint your lost items exact location. But what happens if you can’t find your phone? Use XY Find It to ring it, even if it’s on silent mode, and you’ll find your phone fast. XY Find It helps you keep your stuff...especially if you’re a chronic (keys/wallet/bike/car/bag) "misplacer" like me.

You might be thinking that you already have a keychain. But it probably doesn’t compare to this new futuristic keychain. Here’s a fact everyone can agree upon: bulky keychains are both unsightly and cumbersome to handle. Not to mention, they won’t protect your pockets from getting shredded to bits by your expansive key collection.
That’s where the KeySmart comes in. This handy key organizer offers a simple, elegant solution for organizing your keys – allowing you to eliminate your keychain for good. Let’s start with the basics: this durable key holder can hold up to 14 keys in a compact fashion, and is durable to boot. It consists of two 3mm thick plates made of aircraft grade aluminum, meaning you won’t have to worry about handling it with kid gloves. No surprise, then, that we also guarantee that the KeySmart will take anything life throws at it. Take it anywhere – from work, to the beach, and much more – knowing it won’t get dented or scratch easily.
You won’t have to worry about the contents of your pockets getting scratched, either! For instance, you can rest assured your keys won’t scratch your phone. And as an added bonus, you’ll be able to walk around without being heard a mile away due to your keys jingling and jangling about – as they would on a conventional keychain.
And how’s this for ultimate convenience? The KeySmart boasts a built-in clip that allows you to attach it to any pocket, belt, or bag. (If you’d prefer to go without the clip, you can easily remove it.) You can even customize your KeySmart by adding accessories like USB drives and bottle openers to it, all available separately on the KeySmart website.

Aging isn’t fun, and a lot of people don’t like to admit their body isn’t quite what it was when they were young. But who can say no to a foot massage? Foot pain, no matter how much or how little it hurts, it sets a precedent for underlying health issues to come.

If your dog has some bad behaviors like constantly barking, jumping on guests, or running towards the door whenever the doorbell rings then you might want to try out Barx Buddy. This device was created by an ex-military dog trainer who wanted to give regular people the ability to stop bad pet behavior without spending thousands of dollars on a trainer. Basically Barx Buddy is a device to help dogs get rid of bad behaviors by playing a super high pitched whistle sound that only they can hear. It doesn't hurt them at all but it will get them to stop their behavior.
What you'll want to do is wait for the behavior you want to stop, like: begging for food, non-stop barking at the door bell, barking late at night, destroying your couch cushions, or whatever annoying behavior needs to stop.
When your dog starts doing the bad behavior, physically get in between them and whatever they're doing wrong (couch, door, stranger, etc.) point the Barx Buddy at them and hold the button. It will start playing the ultrasonic whistle sound and will get them to back away. After that just let go of the button and give your dog some kind of reward (treat, head scratches, etc.) so they remember good things happen when they aren't being bad.
It's that easy to use Barx Buddy... It also comes equipped with a flashlight you can point at them or just to use for walking the dog at night.

Bathroom trips at night can be a real pain in the you know what. Having to get out of bed, stumbling around to find the light only to be fully woken up when you finally turn it on.

It's called the Glowbowl, and it's a motion activated gadget that sits inside the toilet bowl. When you enter the washroom, the toilet lights up (you can set whichever color you want). It also has a built in air-freshener to leave the bathroom smelling great.

I know what you're thinking... You have cloud storage automatically backup of all your pictures and videos.

Then, being able to tuck those golden memories away in any safe place you please! That's why you need this new device called the Photostick Mobile. Just plug it into your phone (works for both Android, iPhone, and iPad).

Bonus #2: Oura – Activity Tracking Sleep Ring
We all know how important sleep is for our health – getting 7-8 hours of sleep can be more important than exercise and diet for our health. In fact, new studies are showing that lack of sleep is associated with all cause mortality and even being linked with Alzheimers and Dementia. Could new technology help us improve our sleep?

Unlike cumbersome activity tracking watches and bracelets, the Oura Ring was designed to be a simple piece of wearable technology that you can put on and forget about.

The best part is that it’s a ring, so it shouldn’t bother you wearing it while you sleep. This could be just the thing you need to kickstart yourself into better habits.
