9. Must Have Gadget:Nintendo Switch

Control your game: The Nintendo Switch allows gamers to play games handheld or on the screen. According to IGN, the Nintendo Switch was the highest selling console of September 2017.

Attribute some of the Switch’s appeal to its namesake trick—you can carry it around and play anywhere, or detach the controllers and play it on a big TV. That flexibility makes it appealing to frequent flyers. For us, it comes down to the familiar names in the game library, which, thankfully, developers didn’t carelessly exploit. The latest Zelda, Mario Kart, and Sonic are all fantastic experiences that just happen to have nostalgia appeal. It all combines into a device so fun that it could push anyone claiming to have outgrown video games to reverse his or her stance.

6. Original Wearable Tech:Headphones

Go DJ: According to Forbes, Beats by Dre sold $620 million in 2014. The new headphones joins Sony for the latest Bluetooth headphones.

Looks like what Dr. Dre would’ve worn while producing Straight Outta Compton (the 1988 record, not the movie), except with Bluetooth and noise cancellation that adapts as you go from the coffee shop to the pavement. We’ve dismissed previous Beats products as marketing compensating for a bad sound-quality-per-pound ratio. The Studio3s changed our minds. The only gripe: If the battery’s dead, the wired connection doesn’t work at all.
