Will there be anything more gimmicky than the touch bar for Apple’s Macbook? Only time will tell what gadgets and gizmos will prove most successful in 2018. But expect the following to
- Hardware Wallets – With more and more people getting in Cryptocurrencies, it’s only natural that people will be concerned with security their bitcoins, litecoins, ethereums etc. Hardware wallets help protect peoples’ investments and given the many hacks and vulnerabilities online exchanges and software wallets faced in 2017, we anticipate that hardware wallets sales, such as those for the Ledger Nano S and Trezor, will continue to soar.

DJI’s Mavic Air will be unveiled at an upcoming drone expo, which will be on the wishlist for many enthusiasts. Expect 2018 to be even bigger for drones.

The big question is affordability on these, and safety given the reported incidents last year with the Tesla X.
