Gadgets You May Not Have Heard About

Technology is constantly evolving and improving. Old and clumsy contraptions become smaller, sleek, and more efficient. These 18 gadgets are incredible innovations or brilliant redesigns, and yet sadly, they seem to have gone unnoticed. Most of these gadgets are already available, and I’m already considering getting some of them.

1. Solar-Powered Water Distiller

This fantastic contraption can turn dirty, or even salt water, into clean, drinkable water without using any power or electricity and can mostly be made from simple accessible materials. People in impoverished areas can pour the dirty water into it in the morning, and by evening – they will have clean water to drink.
