Last year, a wide array of powerful gadgets came out that can fulfil needs we didn't even know that we had. From tablets to gaming consoles to 3D printers, the best gadgets of 2013 are detailed below.
Apple iPad Air
The iPad Air offers the first big change to the iPad since the iPad 2. The iPad Air can sense whether a thumb is on the screen on accident, a technology that older iPads did not have. This allowed Apple to make the device thinner than its predecessors. The iPad Air is also faster and shares some features with the iPhone 5S, like a motion co-processor.
gMax 3D printer
gMax is a 3D printer that was funded on Kickstarter. The printer is open source and is easy to dissemble, allowing users to swap new parts in. gMax has a larger print bed than many other 3D printers, so larger objects can be printed. The future of gMax looks bright, as many backers of the project are looking to expand its features.
Chromecast allows you to easily send any viewable content from a Chrome Web browser to a TV. You can control Chromecast from any smartphone, tablet, or computer. Chromecast is both inexpensive and easy to use, making it one of the best gadgets of this year.
Google Glass is a wearable computer that is currently in development. The device is worn like a pair of glasses. With Google Glass, users will be able to complete tasks that can be completed on smartphones without hands. Furthermore, using voice commands, Google Glass allows users to browse the Internet.
Microsoft Xbox One
The Xbox One can handle voice commands, gesture control, and offers an improved media playing experience over the Xbox 360. The Xbox One is a powerful console, with an octa-core processor and 8GB of RAM. This console is great for both gamers and Hulu or Netflix watchers.
