Everyone expected the 2000s to be filled with flying cars and airships all over the sky in the past. While that didn’t pan out as people hoped, we got something better. We got touch-screen smartphones, speakers that only you can hear, and televisions with displays that are so clear you’d probably fool someone from the early 2000s if you told them someone was stuck inside it.

In this video, we’ll be taking a look at five gadgets and inventions in 2022 that we’re looking forward to having.

1. Fujifilm Instax Mini 40 Camera

When you think of cameras in today’s era, one usually thinks of smartphones with high-end megapixel cameras or a DSLR. Fujifilm has made an exception with the Instax Mini 40 Camera rocketing the retro vibe of an old pop-up camera.

Equipped with a 60 mm Lens with an aspect ratio of 1:12, it gets up close and personal for those fun, spontaneous photo op sessions you and your friends can enjoy. Fujifilm has also added a selfie button so that you can rock those retro vibe cameras and still have a premium picture printed out.

2. Meeting Owl Pro

After COVID forced everyone to work from home and rely on online work meetings, people began looking for ways to improve the experience. Meeting Owl Pro is probably the best in the market if you’re looking for an all-around meeting accessory.

The Meeting Owl Pro has a 360-degree camera, eight microphones, a high-quality speaker, and it aims to replicate an in-person meeting while separated from colleagues.

3. Logitech Litra Glow

Logitech Litra Glow is perfect for all sorts of streaming needs like YouTube, Twitch, or even just working from home and creating the perfect customizable environment for you.

It’s a simple square accessory that helps with lighting with perfectly diffused lighting that wraps the subject in a natural and flattering light.

4. Rocketbook Smart Reusable Notebook

The perfect blend between digital and old school, Rocketbook Smart Reusable Notebook is a 32-page notebook that combines the magic of whiteboards while allowing you to keep your notes digitally. They’re available in various sizes and can easily be wiped clean with a damp cloth when paired with Pilot Frixion Pens.

A Rocketbook Smart Reusable Notebook keeps the authentic pen and paper feel while helping out the environment because the pages are reusable. Smartphones that have access to the app will also allow you to keep track and access your notes whenever you need them.

5. Biolite FirePit+

Combining old-school and innovations, the Biolite FirePit+ allows us to still keep the same old feeling of bonfires and barbecues without the annoying smoke that can sometimes be too much.

Biolite FirePit+’s improved airflow technology encourages the flame to burn hottest and more efficiently without producing too much smoke. However, you can still put some charcoal in the grill or some wood for the same smokey taste. This bad boy lasts between 7-30 hours, depending on how high the heat is turned up. It can also be charged via USB, so it’s definitely easy to use.
