2020 saw one of the best technologies we’ve seen in a decade with next-generation technology being used for newer purposes. 2021 brings some new gadgets that will make the year worth the wait. Here’s a look at the 5 gadgets that we can’t wait to get our hands-on.
OnePlus has dominated the Android smartphone market when it comes to affordable as well as the premium segment. OnePlus CEO, Pete Lau’s tweet mentioned an early 2021 release. It is likely going to be coupled with the launch of the OnePlus 9 series of smartphones. The smartwatch will likely run a bespoke Android OS that has compatibility with the iPhone as well.
Apple fanboys may be able to get their hands-on Apple Airtags to attach to keys, wallets and luggage. The tracking tag will have GPS, Bluetooth and Apple OS integration similar to the Find My Phone app to locate your iPhone. The AirTags can be used to track any object and will likely go head-to-head with the Tile Tracker, which is the best tracking option at the moment. The device will use Ultra-Wideband radio for accurately tracking the tag and can be charged wirelessly like the Apple Watch.
One of the zaniest entries on the list is the SprayCare Band which makes sense when you get to know about it. It is a wearable band that sprays sanitiser on your hands at the touch of a button. It’s not as crazy as it looks and makes a lot of sense to stay safe from the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s supremely high on the cool meter to spray sanitiser like Spiderman shoots webs from his wrist. With 40 sprays per refill, it’s an excellent accessory to wear in case you need to sanitise your hands or a surface.
Zoox Autonomous Personal Vehicle
The Zoox APV is the new way to get around town now. The personal transportation device lets you relax and travel around in a fun, safe and hygienic way. The autonomous vehicle has two benches that allow the same amount of comfort to all the passengers.
Virtuix Omni One VR Treadmill

The VR device can also detect when you crouch, strafe, walk or run according to your movements.
