The word "gadget" was originally a handy placeholder for another word that you couldn't remember.
That's fitting, because nowadays gadgets are products that solve problems we didn't even realize we had. The good folks at the Gadget Flow have curated some of the coolest, most cutting edge products to solve all kinds of everyday problems. (They're also giving away an iPhone X, enter here for your chance to win.)Here are 15 of our favorites:
1. ORII Voice Powered Smart Ring
Even smaller than a smart watch, this handy device puts all the uses of a smart phone in the palm of your hand. It sends texts, makes calls, and sets reminders, all using voice commands. Plus it's splash-proof.
2. Chevalier Stemless Aerating Wine Glass
The amateur sommelier in your life (that's French for wine snob) will get a kick out of these glasses with built-in aerators. Simply pour and enjoy the full flavor of your favorite wines. The stem-free design also helps prevent spills.
3. Ibis Volcanic Basalt Hanging Basket Chair

4. Scewo Stair Climbing Wheelchair
Finally, a product that gives total mobility to the people who need it the most. The Scewo can pivot in place, climb stairs, and adjust to suit your height. The chair's large wheels, rubber grips, and self-balancing technology guarantee a safe and comfortable ride.
