When we talk about cool gadgets, we don’t mean James Bond cool gadgets. The term “cool gadgets” discusses a specific set of electronics that stand out from the rest of the crowd in their special use or rarity. Typically, the reason could be anything. While a calculator cannot be set aside as a cool gadget, cool electronic binoculars with night vision and focus adjustors would count as one. The obvious question would be the factors that distinguish the cool gadgets from the not-so-cool ones. While listing all the factors that could take an eternity, you’ll find some of the factors here.
* New Technology – When Bluetooth was introduced, only a couple of manufacturers understood its importance and incorporated the technology in their cell phones. Those cell phones were considered “cool gadgets.” A typical example of a cool gadget now would be smartphones, the iPhone, or even the iPad. While the Amazon Kindle can be considered a cool gadget, it is arguable.

* Rarity – If you own it and your friends own it, and everybody you know owns it, it’s not really a cool gadget anymore, even if it’s an iPhone. Think of this – when everyone you knew wandered around with a candy bar cell phone, one of your friends must have owned a gem of a cell phone. Now that would have been a cool gadget.
* Cool Brand Name – Well, this is simplicity itself. Some brand names are cool, and some are not. The Barbecue Propane Gauge is a boring name, while the Xbox sounds cool.
These are just some of the reasons why cool gadgets stand out from the others. It is never unanimously accepted because there are always complainers. If most geeks accept it as a cool gadget, then it goes down in the history books as one.
This year has been remarkable for cool gadgets because there have been some impressive gadgets in the market. With the size of the computer gradually decreasing and its features exponentially increasing, the vacuum tube computers evolved into desktops and laptops and finally into tablet PCs. You can describe them in one word – Awesome! The Windows phone is critically acclaimed but has not received too much attention from the people, maybe because they think it’s going to be bug-ridden too.
On the other hand, the Android phone was well received by the masses. You can now change the way you watch TV with the latest 3DTVs. If Nintendo’s Wii can attract people, Microsoft’s Xbox 360 Kinect can redefine the concept of gaming. These are just some of the really cool gadgets of last year, but 2010 has been fortunate in the endless list of new innovative products that came out.
