With each new year tech products tend to evolve, with innovative new gadgets getting smaller and faster, and new breakthroughs being achieved, here is a top list of tech products going viral in 2018. Many of these products are not things on anyone’s radar but have already begun to sell millions worldwide, so without further ado, I present a compilation of the newest trending gadgets.
1. XY Find It – Track Anything (GPS Tracker)
This coin-sized tracking device so small you can attach it to literally anything, your keys, your purse, your wallet, backpack, even your dog. With the app that accompanies this trendy little device called XY Find It, users can locate your lost items, telling you how far away you are and even send out an audible alert to pinpoint its exact location. The best part is once activated any other XY Find It user passing by will pass on the network alert to your app allowing greater reliability in the tracking and location without anyone even being aware. The tracker itself only weighs 30 grams and costs $29.
2. Siren Song – Personal Protection Alarm
Inspired by the Military, the Siren Song uses ear piercing sound (over 130 decibels) to deter bad guys and is quickly becoming one of the most sought-after safety devices in America.
It will most likely be on every kid’s keychains or backpacks by the end of the year, but it should also be carried by every woman in America. With over 100,000 units sold in 2017 alone, this tech product has been making viral gadgets lists since 2017!
But the Siren Song isn’t just to help protect you, your kids and your grandkids from an attack. It can also be used as a life-saving device to call for help if you’re having a heart attack or have some other health condition that can prevent you from yelling for help.
Safety doesn’t happen by accident with these tech products. You can now purchase a personal alarm for yourself, for your child, or for a loved one. The Siren Song is particularly suitable for teenagers, parents, night owls, delivery route employees, business owners, and college students, or the elderly who may need to call for help. The keychain design is perfect for use with house keys or car keys. It can also be attached to a backpack or a purse.
Have you ever gone to an auto repair shop for an oil change, only to have the mechanic say you need a new transmission? Or has the mysterious “check engine” light come on, and next thing you know the mechanic has a list of expensive engine parts that need replacing? Unfortunately, mechanics know taking advantage of people is easy, given their lack of knowledge about car maintenance needs. That’s not to say all mechanics are shady or looking at you like you’re a mark, but with this little tech gadget, it certainly removes the guesswork.
If your car was built after 1996 then you can use these brilliant new tech products called Fixd to instantly diagnose any car problems. This means the next time your “Check Engine Light” happens to come on, you’ll know exactly what the issue is. In the United States alone, this product has done over $50,000,000 in sales in 2017, so it definitely qualifies for the viral products list.
Perhaps one of the coolest gadgets on this list is the Haylo Safety flare. The Safety Flare offers the highest level of roadside safety for on-the-road or child-at-play situations and more! It can be used as a road flare, emergency beacon, marine applications, camping and outdoors. Perfect for emergency use, camping/outdoors, road flares, marine applications, etc. Plus it is shatterproof, rainproof (IP55) and it can float so you can take it anywhere.
10 different lighting modes include spotlight (6 hours), double blink (9 hours), double pulse (9 hours), single blink (38 hours), rotate (9 hours), SOS rescue morse code (15 hours), alternate (9 hours), solid on high (5 hours), solid on low (28 hours) and 2 flashlight (9 hours). Easy to use: Just press the button and hold to turn on and cycle through the different lighting options.
The super-bright array can be seen up to 1 mile at night and can also provide additional protection during the day as well. The strong magnetic backing allows the Halo to adhere to your vehicle’s hood and other metal surfaces. Not only that, but this can be used in places such as forests where regular safety flares might be dangerous to use. Another one of the great tech products on this list.
Although not exactly a new invention it is perhaps one of the most durable and without a doubt the brightest ideas for a new tech product on this list. this specific flashlight isn’t just your run of the mill ordinary flashlight. It went viral in 2017 and sold over 20,000 units in just a few months. The perfect flashlight for emergency situations is the TC1200 Flashlight.
This was built to withstand anything! You might be thinking that you already have a flashlight. But do the U.S. Navy Seals and the U.S. Coast Guard rely on the kind of flashlight you have? The TC1200 Flashlight uses military-grade LED technology that can illuminate a field or blanket a work area with 800 lumens of light. It can also blind an attacker. The skin is tough aircraft-grade-aluminum. Throw it, drive over it—it’ll still work. Drop it in six feet of water—it’ll still work.
This tough gadget is also versatile. It comes with a strobe setting if you are stranded and need to signal for help, and you can zoom and focus its LED beam to see far, far away. 3 AAA batteries give it 1,000 hours of life. That makes it ideal for reliable, abundant light during a prolonged natural disaster or emergency…and for lots of everyday uses.
Here’s a tech product that’s created a lot of buzz recently. A backpack with a brain! Designed to carry all your tech, and also to charge it and track it as well. This backpack is a charging station with its own internal tracker! Whether you are a traveler or a student or a busy work commuter this BackPack is for you.
There are compartments for each of your devices, even laptops with up to 15.6” screens, and charging ports for each of them. If you leave your bag behind, it can alert your phone! (This is available on the higher-priced models.) They’re water-resistant, include anti-theft features, and are intelligently padded to protect your devices. Not only do you have style options, but you can also get a great discount because these bags are new and the producers are trying to gain a big market share fast. This is a perfect tactical gadget for people to have.
Yes a Keychain, but this is no typical Keychain, bulky keychains are both unsightly and cumbersome to handle. Not to mention, they won’t protect your pockets from getting shredded to bits by your expansive key collection.
That’s where the KeySmart comes in. This handy key organizer offers a simple, elegant solution for organizing your keys – allowing you to eliminate your keychain for good.
Let’s start with the basics: this durable key holder can hold up to 14 keys in a compact fashion and is durable to boot. It consists of two 3mm thick plates made of aircraft-grade aluminum, meaning you won’t have to worry about handling it with kid gloves.
No surprise, then, that it also guarantees that the KeySmart will take anything life throws at it. Take it anywhere – from work to the beach, and much more – knowing it won’t get dented or scratch easily.
You won’t have to worry about the contents of your pockets getting scratched, either! For instance, you can rest assured your keys won’t scratch your phone. And as an added bonus, you’ll be able to walk around without being heard a mile away due to your keys jingling and jangling about – as they would on a conventional keychain.
And how’s this for ultimate convenience? The KeySmart boasts a built-in clip that allows you to attach it to any pocket, belt, or bag. (If you’d prefer to go without the clip, you can easily remove it.) You can even customize your KeySmart by adding accessories like USB drives and bottle openers to it, all available separately on the KeySmart website.
