Frankly, it does not matter who resist the arrival but the end of the year and almost two months has transpired. And unless a major release of a revolutionary product (disruptive-IA-Blockchains-chatbot-autonomous), the best gadgets are already in the store shelves or virtual listings of e-merchants.
The worst too, if the companies that produce them did not put the key under the door.
The objects presented here have not been chosen according to the usual criteria of buying guides who try to advise you according to a budget and specific uses. No, here, it will be about products that, roughly speaking, have made everyone agree or almost have this year.
1. Nintendo Switch
Ah, Nintendo. At a time when Sony and Microsoft are struggling to tease the players with 4K 60 FPS that almost never happens or neat audio labels, Nintendo released a console with modest features (read: a Nvidia Shield) which displays 720p and up to prehistoric 1080p on a TV and that cartons.
It hits hard, because Nintendo understood that the technique was behind the gameplay and fun for all ages. It’s a hit, because the few games available on Switch are all nuggets.
It hits hard because it takes the challenge of marrying a home console to a portable console, without either being served in the exercise.
It is hard-core because it is now sold at an honest and affordable price and does not require equipment worth several thousand euros to take advantage of its capabilities.
In short, after a moribund Wii U, Nintendo showed previously that it always knows what video game means. And if all goes well, 2018 will be the year of the explosion of records for the Switch. That’s all we wish for him.
2. Apple iPhone/ Apple iPhoneX
Last year was also a big year for Apple. The manufacturer has released its finest iPhone for a long time and a model of all superlatives, shipping the first OLED screen to run iOS and the first biometric authentication device to really work with a face.
The notch did not put all aesthetes in agreement, but again, Apple has proven that it knew how to make the very high end uncompromising, durable and updated in the long term. No doubt, the iPhone X will remain a reference in 2018.
3. Tesla Model 3
There was not much time for Tesla to have a place at the top in the previous year. And yet, it’s done. The first copies of the Model 3 have been delivered to impatient customers and the production finally seems to be speed up after weeks of setbacks.
In addition to being a gem of technology like its sisters, the Tesla Model 3 is a challenge in itself. By dividing the price by two of its vehicles, the American manufacturer is now addressing a wider audience.
By increasing the size of its target, Tesla has retained its mastery and its requirements such as elegant vehicles, fast and pleasant to drive with sensors that, one day, will allow them to be completely autonomous.
And it is precisely in this that the Model 3 is in our top gadgets of the year, Tesla finally begins a stage of his life as a company that will ensure its survival or race it towards bankruptcy. However, we wish Elon Musk the first option.
It is the same gadget which is presently not at par with excellence as last year, 4G has been structured, broadband has increased and networks are now ready to support a new generation of cloud services.
This is certainly the bet of Shadow, who offers since the spring a computer service in the cloud accessible via macOS, Windows or Android applications or a thin client to connect to a screen.
At the start of 2018, Shadow has officially launched by reaching out to many by opening its service to ADSL connections. The fiber offer had seduced us and even if there is still some progress to be made, Shadow is now perfectly usable and will continue to improve.
And it is not every day that world prefigure one of the uses of the computing of tomorrow.
5. DJI Spark
After initially being reserved for semi-professionals of the drone, DJI decided to share its knowledge on many product lines. After the critically acclaimed Mavic Pro and the public, the Spark has established itself as the reference for drones last year.
Compact, lightweight, ultra-versatile and equipped with stabilized optics to shoot videos in 1080p, this little drone has everything for him for half the price of his big brother.
With the Spark, DJI has clearly shown this year that it knew how to deploy its expertise on less expensive objects while maintaining a huge requirement in terms of quality for its products.
The advance of the Chinese on the market of the drone general public is now recorded. We are all eager to see what they have to offer in 2018 as the year progresses forward.
Feel free to share in comments the gadgets released in the previous year that have the most marked and which, in your opinion, will create the trends of 2018.
