This is the age of technology. Excitement used to get drummed up because the newest Playstation or Gamecube was about to come out. Now days, it’s similar, but it is usually more related to Xboxes or anything that comes out from Apple.
The technology is out there and anyone can get their hands on a cool gadget, pick it apart, and make their own version of it. This is seen all the time and people are willing to rip off anything to make a little money.
The most hilarious examples of bad knockoffs of popular brands include the Polystation, a playstation knockoff that actually technically runs like a Nintendo Entertainment System. When you open the disk slot, there’s no place to put a disk, but there is a handy dandy little cartridge slot.
Another example is a contraption called the WiWi. Obviously a knockoff of the hit system Wi, however they thought tacking an extra Wi on the end of it would make the WiWi twice as likely to gain the affections of consumers across the world. Like the Polystation, the WiWi also runs on cartridges.
Though knockoffs are sure to ensue, here are the coolest new gadgets you can expect to see in 2016.

Drug-Free Pain Killers
Pain Killers are no doubt a necessity for so many, but it’s true that they can bring on awful side effects. Many people either end up getting addicted to the painkillers they have to take, or they don’t like the way the drugs make them feel. Lucky enough for them, there is new technology coming out called Quell, make by NeuroMetrix.
Quell is designed to give drug-free pain relief using a new technology called Wearable Intensive Nerve Stimulation, or WINS, for short. Quell is a band that when worn targets nerves that send information back to the brain. The pulses from the band block pain signals throughout the body. No pain, no drugs, and no chance of developing addiction? Sounds like a step in the right direction. This is only the beginning of new technology that will continue to innovate and change the world.
