Having the newest gadgets and books is always a good feeling, but with technology and culture growing at such a rapid pace — it can feel almost impossible to keep up. These days, the traditional methods of finding new and innovative products — on television or in a magazine — are no longer the best ways of staying ahead of the trends. In fact, most new technologies can’t be found in advertisements at all. The same goes for the latest books and other leisure products.
So where does one look?
The best place on the web to check for the latest tech trends is on Amazon’s Most Wished For page. This list is curated by Amazon and ranks items by the number of wish lists they appear on. Unfortunately, it would take someone an entire day to browse through all these products. That’s why I went ahead and punched up a short article on what I think are the 30 most exciting finds and why you need them. Don’t sleep on these trends or you’ll be left in the dust!
