Dyson Cyclone V10 Absolute
Ok, so vacuum cleaners might seem like a weird choice for the best 2018 gadgets list. But bear with me here. Just like the Roomba became a phenomenon, the Dyson Cyclone V10 Absolute changes the game completely. For one, it’s more futuristic looking and less space-consuming than any vacuum cleaner you’ll ever see. It charges mounted to a wall, looks like a nerf or water gun, and packs the power to be the smallest cleaning product to also be the most effective. This thing will make you feel like you’re cleaning spaceships in the future.
