4 New Gadgets You Should’ve Bought in 2017

Stay on target

We saw some pretty epic advancements in tech this year. At Geek, we are pretty hyped to see where the world continues to make leaps in robotics and AI. But we also had some pretty nifty gadgets sent our way too. These are four we can’t get enough of and will probably still be obsessed with in 2018.

If it weren’t for Nintendo’s incredible output, I may have been arguing for DropMix as game of the year. But it certainly qualifies as best gadget. Using cards with embedded RFID chips, players can intuitively and creatively generate new song mashups on a light-up deck toy connected to a smart device. It’s one of the most accessible tools for discovering this particularly joyful aspect of making music. We can’t wait to see, and hear, someone incorporate it into their DJ routine.

Nintendo Switch

Submitted by K. Thor Jensen

After the Wii U, I never thought I’d buy a Nintendo console again. The company just seemed so lost and confused, not sure how to compete in the modern hardware era. And then they released the Switch and the old black magic came right on back. It’s a perfect example of Nintendo doing what they do best: coming up with a left-field idea and executing it to perfection. A dual home / portable system wasn’t what anybody was asking for, but it sure as hell was what we needed.

SNES Classic

Submitted by Nick Mangione

Yeah, I know you can get more SNES games for cheaper with a Raspberry Pi and an emulator, but one, that’s technically illegal, and two, the package wouldn’t be as nice as this. Look, I’ll admit I’m a sucker. Nintendo has me on a string, and they have since I was three years old. They show me the cutest SNES in the world and I needed it on my shelf yesterday. The games are emulated nicely, and a lot of care went into their presentation. They’re also some of the best games ever made. I forgot how magical The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past was the first time I played it. Or how jaw-dropping that opening credits sequence in Final Fantasy III/VI was. SNES Classic allowed me to feel like a little kid playing these games for the first time again. Of course, this doesn’t excuse Nintendo’s continued inexplicable supply troubles. They produced a lot more units this time around (enough so resale prices aren’t completely ridiculous like they were with the NES Classic). But every aspect of the distribution was bungled. Is another batch coming? Who knows? The SNES Classic is an awesome little device. I only wish Nintendo was able to sell it.

iPhone X

Submitted by Brittany Vincent

You can fool yourself into thinking Android is the better operating system all you like. But ever since I switched from my Droid 2 all those years ago to an iPhone I purchased at full price from Walmart one night because I couldn’t stand being on that trashy Android build one minute longer, I haven’t looked back. And with my recent iPhone X purchase , I’m still deliriously happy with my decision. Even though I’m way more aware now that I need to wear makeup on a regular basis now and I’m rapidly aging at 28 thanks to its front-facing camera, I can say without a doubt it’s the best phone I’ve ever used. Face ID is a breeze, and every aspect of the iPhone X feels premium. I’m satisfied with my purchase, and I can’t wait to see what Apple comes up with next.
