OK, hands up, if your car ran out of battery and you had to give it a boost, would you know which jump leads go where? If not, this gadget could be your saving grace. The vehicle-to-vehicle booster works in a similar way to common jump leads – in that it transfers battery power from one car to another. However, instead of lifting up the bonnet, you can just connect this device to both cars’ 12V DC sockets (the cigarette lighter socket) and a few minutes later your car will be raring to go. The lead itself is six meters – easily long enough to stretch between two cars.
High-tech wearables are nothing new for the business world, but in 2014, Intel introduced an interesting new set of earbuds that can help you stay both mentally and physically healthy throughout your day, including while at work. These body-monitoring earbuds sync to both iOS and Android phones, and track everything from calorie and distance traveled, to your heartbeat in real time. When that inevitable slump occurs just after lunch, the earbuds will automatically play you a song especially chosen to pump you up, while a calming song will be offered after that frustrating meeting with your boss.

There are plenty of satnavs out there and one of the market leaders, Garmin, has a great one. The nuviCam is a two-in-one satnav. In addition to the usual easy-to-read maps and clear directions that you’d expect, it also comes with a built-in dash-cam that automatically records if your car is involved in an incident. The device also comes with two great safety features, a lane departure warning – so if you’re driving and drift out of your lane you’ll quickly be alerted, and forward collision warning notifications so if you get too close to a car in front you’ll know about it too. You can even use the Bluetooth enabled device to connect to your Smartphone so you can talk safely. We say, two-in-one? It’s actually more like a five in one.

Let’s face it, iPhones don’t have the greatest speakers in the world. If you find yourself wanting music outdoors or at parties — or any place that’s not your go-to stereo/speaker system — you should probably invest in a Bluetooth speaker, and the Anker AK-99ANSP9901 is perhaps the best option. This two-inch speaker is capable of up to 20 hours of playtime, thanks to the built-in 2100mAh battery. It connects via Bluetooth 2.1 and up, making it compatible with virtually every mobile device on the market, and it includes a standard 3.5mm (AUX) audio port if you want to connect via headphone jack. And the sound is quite impressive for something that costs less than $40.

The origins of the word gadget trace back to the 19th century. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, there is anecdotal (not necessarily true) evidence for the use of gadget as a placeholder name for a technical item whose precise name one can’t remember since the 1850s; with Robert Brown’s 1886 book Spunyarn and Spindrift, A sailor boy’s log of a voyage out and home in a China tea-clipper containing the earliest known usage in print. The etymology of the word is disputed.
