From the most innovative tech from 2020 to the coolest products you’ve never heard of before, we’re rounding up the six gadgets we’re most excited about playing with right now. They make great gifts for father’s day, summer birthdays, and weddings – but of course, you could keep them for yourself.
Oculus Quest 2 VR Headset
Released in late 2020 by Facebook offshoot Oculus, the Quest 2 is still one of the best VR headsets on the market right now. The headset is completely wireless, setup is simple, and you only need to log into Facebook to connect to a variety of VR games, fitness programs, and more. It’s smaller and lighter than its predecessor, making it possible to play for longer without neck strain. Most importantly, Oculus improved the image refresh rate to provide an even more immersive experience.
Starting at $299 from Oculus
Humanscale Neatcharge Wireless Charging Pad

Humanscale has solved this problem with Neatcharge, an innovative charging pad that mounts to the bottom of any surface. Just mount the Neatcharge to the underside of a table using the installation kit, use the included sticker to indicate where to place your device, and you’re ready to charge.
