The word "gadget" was originally a handy placeholder for another word that you couldn't remember.
That's fitting, because nowadays gadgets are products that solve problems we didn't even realize we had. The good folks at the Gadget Flow have curated some of the coolest, most cutting edge products to solve all kinds of everyday problems. (They're also giving away an iPhone X, enter here for your chance to win.)Here are 15 of our favorites:
