We’ve scoured the tech world to find eight amazing devices that you can gift to just about anyone. We made sure to include thingamajigs from many different areas of interest, so you can find something to give that special someone no matter how eccentric they may be.
You better act quickly though. These gadgets are selling fast.
Bondic is the perfect gift for that wonderful person in your life who loves to fix things. This sticky new gadget can fix almost anything in only about 4 seconds.
If we’re being honest, we’ve never been quite happy with most adhesives. They’re either not sticky enough or they spill everywhere, making our hands a permanent piece of our projects.
Bondic is the future of sticky. It was dreamed up by a dentist based on the uncannily-strong dental bonding compounds he was using at work. Together with a chemical engineer friend, he managed to tweak the UV-based compound and come up with a brand new kind of liquid plastic. His new formula is up to 50 times stickier than most other adhesives.
All you need to do is put a little bit of the liquid on your broken parts then blast it with the UV light accessory for a few seconds. It will harden almost immediately into a transparent layer of plastic harder than a rock.
A lot of things can go wrong in a vehicle emergency. The car doors can jam shut, the windows can get stuck and the seatbelts can tether you in place. Do you have a vehicle emergency plan?
REACT is a phone charger that doubles as a vehicle safety kit. This device was invented by a panel of vehicle safety professionals. It’s loaded with gadgets to help you get out of your car in a pinch. These include a seatbelt cutter, a window breaker, an extra-bright LED flashlight, a red SOS strobe light and a loud siren.
Experts are always telling us to carry emergency devices in the car with us. Even if you have safety tools in your car, though, you probably put them far away in the trunk or just out of reach in the glove compartment.
The genius of REACT is that it’s designed to store right at hand in your USB charger. Under normal circumstances it will disappear into the background as it silently charges your phone. In an emergency, it will always be right by your side.
FIXD is a smartphone app that connects to your car’s computer to help you diagnose car problems quickly and painlessly. It comes with a tiny Bluetooth-capable gadget that you plug into your vehicle’s onboard computer. The device acts as a bridge between your engine and the app on your phone.
The app can check why your “Check Engine” light went on and even tell you about how much it should cost to fix the problem. If you think the problem isn’t a big deal, you can use the app to turn the “Check Engine” light off so it doesn’t distract you while you drive.
FIXD monitors your car in real time to keep you instantly aware of your engine’s health. It’s like having an expert mechanic on your shoulder wherever you go.
Peeps is a new eyewear cleaning device that makes smears and smudges disappear. If you know someone who’s sick of smearing dirt around their lenses with the same old clothes and sprays, Peeps is the perfect gadget to get them.
The technology in Peeps was first used by NASA on its high-definition optical devices. It’s based on microfiber cleaning pads with a thin layer of carbon that cuts through the crud without scratching your lens. It works to remove anything from fingerprints to oily food spills.
The Peeps gadget comes with a charging case that recharges the device’s carbon molecules for reuse. Independent lab testing has demonstrated that it can last for as many as 500 cleanings.

FlipFork is the ultimate gadget for the barbeque pitmaster in your life. A favorite of barbeque geeks around America, the FlipFork will make your grilling easier and more convenient.
It comes with five integrated tools designed to take your backyard cookout to the next level. The extra-wide spatula is the device’s backbone, sturdy enough to turn over a 3-pound steak with ease. There’s a pointy knife on the edge of the spatula that can cut through any kind of meat imaginable. The other edge has a row of serrated teeth made for tenderizing your meat so all the seasonings can seep through to the bone.
The corner of the spatula has a built-in fork that you can use to maneuver the more delicate cuts and hard-to-handle vegetables. Then, of course, there’s a handy bottle opener in the center so you can crack open a cold one without breaking a sweat.
