We can’t really predict what 2021 will look like, but it surely can’t get any worse than 2020. We should forget about this cursed year and move on to the next one. But if it turns out the next year will be as bad as the current one, there are some ways to make it at least a little bit more bearable.

An example? How about investing in some cool high-tech gadgets? After all, technology is supposed to make our lives more comfortable, and considering the pandemic situation, that’s what we all should look for next year.

But to ensure you don’t waste your hard-earned money on things you don’t need, we’ve prepared a guide. Below, you’ll find the list of some new gadgets you should buy in 2021.

Wireless Speaker/Radio

Wireless Bluetooth speakers have been around for a long time. But if you still haven’t decided to purchase one, you should consider doing that next year. Keep in mind that there might be another lockdown, and music will make staying at home much easier.

The most significant advantage of Bluetooth speakers is that you can conveniently move it around the house. What’s more, with the technology we have now, the quality of sound is incredible. You can also consider investing in the Sonos system, but that’s going to cost you much more.

Weather Radio

We still don’t know how the traveling situation will look like next year. Likely, airplane trips and hotels might not be available, meaning that the best way to get some vacation will be good old road trips and camping. With that in mind, getting a weather radio is an absolute must.

They’re far more reliable than any smartphone app and are one of the travel gadgets every adventurer should have. To find the best emergency radio, make sure you do thorough research.

Next-Gen Console

Both Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X have mid-November release dates. But before you decide on treating yourself this Christmas, wait a second and think. It might be better to postpone your purchase at least until the half of next year. Why? Let us explain.

First of all, the price may get lower. Think about it. Since Sony and Microsoft release their consoles before Christmas, they’ll try to earn as much as they can. But once they fulfill their first hunger, the price of both consoles will likely decrease.

Secondly, more games will be available by that time, and both consoles will be after all the necessary major updates.

E-Book Reader

Remember all these books you’ve wanted to read but never actually have? Since you will probably have to spend the beginning of next year at home, you may not have a better chance to do it – and if you don’t have space for any more books on your shelves, it’s high time you buy yourself an e-book reader.

If you’ve never been a fan of reading on the screen, don’t worry. Nowadays, e-book readers come with great lighting solutions, allowing you to enjoy a book just the way you like.

Bluetooth Electric Drumkit

Playing drums is extremely cool. Unfortunately, it requires not only skill but also room space for a full set. What’s more, it’s a relatively loud instrument, meaning you can’t play it at certain hours. But what if we told you that there’s a solution to your troubles?

There’s a cool gadget that will allow you to drum anywhere and whenever you want. It’s called a Bluetooth drum kit. It’s not even a set of drums per se, but two sensors you can attach to your drumsticks. Once you calibrate it with the set’s special app, you can use whatever you want as your set.

Why not start your year with a few drumming lessons?

Video Conference Camera and Microphone

Do you remember what it’s like to enter a conference room full of people and discuss your ideas? It sounds like a distant past, and unfortunately, you won’t experience that for a while. And with the growing significance of online meetings, it’s high time you invest in more professional gadgets.

A proper video conference camera will enhance your meetings, allowing you to communicate with your co-workers more efficiently. The same goes for a professional microphone.

Bottom Line

The coronavirus pandemic is doing everything it can to make our lives worse. Fortunately, we have the means to fight back, and technology can help with that. That’s why, to make the next year more bearable, you shouldn’t hesitate to invest in some cool gadgets.

As you can see, there is much high-tech gear you can choose from, and as you probably suspect, the list above is just the tip of the iceberg. It’s likely that you already own some of these, but if you don’t, they should be on your next year’s must-buy list.
