5. Echo Dot
What’s not to like with the new 2nd generation Amazon Echo Dot, a device capable of hands-free, voice controlled, well, control. Use it to play music, read news, set alarms and much, much more. The best part is that you can connect it to smart devices around your home, allowing you to control lights, fans, switches, thermostats and even more. Make sure to definitely add this tech to your watch list, if nothing else. The Echo Dot is available on Amazon for $49.99.
