Modern life is never to stay in one spot for very long. Running to work, working out or eating out, traveling cross-country or sitting down at home all the time, we’re engaged in things. We live in an age of technological advancement, there’s a technology or device that can be used for everything we do. There’s an argument to be made for leaving our phones (temporarily) to the side but we’re aware of how technology can enhance our living quality. A few fads and other gadgets might be the mainstay of the news feed but there’s a fundamental set of electronic devices that improve our lives in a significant way.
To compile an inventory of what’s vital to modern-day man, we gathered all of our sources -including Gear Patrol co-founder Eric Yang and staff writers, contributors, and reliable friends like Jeff Carvalho, partner and executive editor of Highsnobiety. They were asked to narrow their selections to 20 essentials items which truly contribute to an enhancement to the quality of life. The result is a list of gadgets that can travel the world, such as batteries for power and small cameras and more stable devices for your home, like 4K televisions and home audio systems No matter which of them appeals your name, you’ll find a product certain to enhance your life.
