Today’s top tech gadgets gain popularity faster in the digital age due to the power of social media marketing.

Our Digital Marketing Company in Toronto has compiled a list of 5 most popular tech gadgets according to social media.

1. 3D Printing

One area where technology’s role as a channel for innovation is predominantly evident is 3D printing. According to Gartner, a tech research company, we are in the early stages of a “Digital Industrial Revolution” that threatens to reform how material goods are created and 3D printing is at the center of this revolution. It is highly likely that over the course of this year, HP will introduce new materials and new printer models that will utilize the technology. What will spearhead their rollout is the overwhelming support it will receive from social media users.

2. Internet of Things

Everyone is talking about Internet of Things on social media because the connection between people, machines and businesses can prove to make work and life smarter and more productive. Gartner researchers argue that there is ample opportunity to build applications and services that can use that information to create new engagement models for customers, employees and partners and to promote a new set of business and marketing models that take “engagement” to a whole different level.

4. Beyond Driverless Cars

Driverless tech was last year’s news. This year, car companies will have to go beyond those mundane technologies to wow audiences and get their attention. It looks like they are doing just that — mostly by making the car’s interior smarter. Think: windshields with heads-up displays (HUDs) and more connected-car gadgets.

5. Cordless Virtual Reality (VR) Headsets

A major grievance on social media about the current VR headsets was that they were not wireless. In this day andin age where we have WiFi and Bluetooth, they next plausible step would be to create cordless devices. Intel has already announced such a device in Project Alloy and I am sure other manufacturers will follow soon.
