It’s a fact that men’s imaginations, more so than women’s, are inclined towards a love of science fiction. Star Wars, X Men, and Star Trek are just 3 among a number of popular global movie franchises that are driven by a loyal viewership of legions of mostly male audiences. Furthermore James Bond is a male icon in no small part thanks to the wonderful array of cars and gadgets he always has at his disposal. Even young boys well before their teenage years have a natural attraction towards gadgets whether such gadgets be cars, bikes, mobiles, or computers. It would seem that a love of gadgets is in men’s DNA and just because we grow up, it doesn’t mean we outgrow our love of gadgets. Our love of Sci-fi, aside from the masterful storytelling, also reflects our love of technology and of novel gadgets.
As young men, our eyes wander to the newest bikes, cars, and smartphones. There is a reason that newer gadgets continue to be made to higher and higher specifications; hordes of men are waiting in the wings to get their hands on the fastest, sleekest, and meanest gadgets out there. We thought that it was time for us to create our own list of the must-have gadgets a young man should endeavour to have in his grown-up toy box. So without further adieu…
Many Indian boys when they were young dreamt of becoming pilots. Even as adults we often gaze with admiration at aviators. It’s no coincidence that the first plane that ever flew did so in front of an audience of hundreds of men who had all gathered to see the first flying machine go airborne for themselves. While aviators grow weary of the novelty of flying soon after they have rested into their tiresome jobs, men who own drones can come close to experiencing the magic of flight at their leisure. Navigating your own drone in the company of friends is a great way to spend time together. Today there are a number of clubs across the world in which men, young and slightly older, race their drones through obstacle courses. What’s more the latest drones come with HD cameras attached to the body of the drone allowing you to record and enjoy the flight of your drone in real time. A drone looks great in any man’s toy box.
2. A Smart Watch/Band
It’s no surprise that following the success of smartphones, tech visionaries created smartwatches as the next must-have toy for both men and women. We’re not saying that the tech industry has put the spotlight only on smartwatches, instead of tech gurus will continue to make everyday things smarter and smarter, but the watch was certainly the big next step. Smartwatches offer smart features that are possible only on a wearable device. Because people wear smartwatches on their hand, smartwatches come with features that allow users to track their daily physical activity and check their vital functions such as blood pressure and heartbeat as well. What makes smartwatches so great is that they won’t necessarily burn a hole in your pocket. We think its safe to say that much of the technology available off the shelves today puts a lot that stemmed from the imagination of the science fiction writers of the 1950’s and 60’ to shame.
3. Solar Power Charging Unit
How great is this? A charging unit that is able to charge your phone using solar power! This is one of those inventions that may make men think “no I don’t want to add another gadget to help me better manage an existing gadget”. Really? When you’re out of charging options you won’t believe how useful a solar-powered charging unit will be. We already know of many men who at times are reduced to planning their schedules based on how much battery power their smartphones have, so just imagine being able to go anywhere and not worry about your phone running low on juice. Just pop out your charging unit and let light and nature do the rest. Need we say more.
4. Electric Beard and Head Trimmer
Being a man is far more than just having a hefty bank account or a wonderful array of toys at your disposal. All the toys a man owns amount to nothing if he himself looks a mess. This is why an electric beard and head trimmer is an essential must-have gadget today. It looks great and makes you look great too. Being able to trim your beard or hair to any length you like, anytime you like, is desirable for most if not all men. Looking good first begins with creating a wholesome and attractive appearance which can be improved with an attractive beard or hairstyle. Buy an electric beard and head trimmer to get the right amount of stubble on your face when needed or the right length of hair when required. This is a must-have for young men who want to complement their wardrobe with the right hairstyle and beard. Happy trimmings.
Above is a list of a small sample of gadgets that are not only great toys but that can let you have fun, make look your best, and help you monitor your health. This list is by no means exhaustive because hundreds of new gadgets are released each year globally not to mention the endless number of apps launched each year for smartwatches alone. Hence to us, this is a list of those particular gadgets that are useful for most Indian men to have or which they can aspire to own soon.
So go ahead, envision the possibility of you amongst friends participating in a drone race with just the right amount of stubble covering your face with a smartwatch on your wrist while your smartphone lies beside you being charged from energy created by the sun. A great time? Most certainly.
Until we meet again dear readers within different arrangements of black, white, and colour.
