Top 10 Gadgets of the Last 10 Years

The last ten years are simply teeming with drool-worthy gadgets, from the fun to the ground-breaking. Here’s our no-nonsense breakdown covering the cream of the crop.

  1. The GoPro Hero 4

Nick Woodman sold the first GoPro from the back of a van; he is now worth an estimated $3 billion. The GoPro range is what made that happen, and the GoPro Hero 4 is our top pick. After all, it sold 2.4 million units during the first 2014 quarter.

  1. The Raspberry Pi

The unassuming Raspberry Pi is a single-board computer that has given budding geniuses a way to stretch their creative legs without breaking the bank. Just take a look at some of the DIY masterpieces that have a Raspberry Pi at their core, then order yours and get to work. 

  1. DietSensor SCiO Food Scanner

The DietSensor just launched at the 2016 International Consumer Electronics Show, and it uses near-infrared spectroscopy to determine the chemical makeup of food and drink. Great for dieters, but life-changing for diabetics.

  1. LittleBits

When your kids aren’t quite ready for a Raspberry Pi, let them use a LittleBits kit to develop their STEM skills. Colour-coded circuits and control boards make it easy.

  1. Garmin Varia

Garmin was already well-known among athletes, but the innovative Varia added high-tech radar to the common bicycle, providing enhanced situational awareness to keep our cycling buddies safe. 

  1. Microsoft HoloLens

The HoloLens is one of the first technologies to offer a true AR experience. Need we say more?

  1. E-Puppy Personal USB E-mail Communicator

Ever feel like what you really need to get through the working day is a talking puppy? This one converts text from emails, word files, and websites, then speaks it back to you. I mean, come on: aww.

  1. Optus Mini 3

The Optus Mini 3 uses three interactive OLED keys that act as both animated informational widgets and contextual keys, taking their cue from the application you’re currently using.

  1. Livescribe 3 Smartpen

One for the students; the Livescribe 3 records audio through your smartphone or tablet as you scribble. Touch pen to writing later to hear exactly what was said.

  1. The 3D Printer

The success of the 3D printer concept can’t really be attributed to any one model, but the potential of the technology means that it deserves a place on this list.


If this list of gadgets hasn’t seen you brew up some coffee for an all-night development session, we really can’t imagine why.
