Every year the tech industry gets a big shakeup as the newest things in tech innovation take centerstage at CES – the world’s biggest electronics show. But some of the biggest ideas come in small packages, so we found some itty bitty gadgets coming out in 2018 that are about to make a big impact.

1. Zanco tiny t1

The Zanco tiny t1 is a perfectly pint-sized telephone that fits in the palm of your hand. This diminutive gadget is smaller than your thumb, lighter than a coin, and it’s ridiculously cute. This teeny toy will talk and text over the 2G network – so check with your provider about 2G coverage in your area.  This is perfect as a backup or emergency phone that you can store in your pocket or glove compartment. And if you lead an active lifestyle, this is one piece of tech that won’t way you down. If you’re a jogger, runner, cyclist, or someone’s who’s into extreme sports, this is a must-have! The tiny t1 is expected to ship in May 2018 and rings in around fifty bucks.


There are paper planes, and then there’s the POWERUP DART Paper Airplane. This paper plane can do with others can’t – including barrel rolling and flying vertically. Pretty cool, huh? This tiny conversion kit will turn the paper planes of yesteryear into a puny aerobatic powerhouse. To use POWERUP DART, all you have to do is fold a piece of paper into a plane, attach the module, and the rest works like magic with a few taps of the app. These junior jets are on sale on Indiegogo for twenty-nine bucks and are expected to touch down in your mailbox this February.

3. RepliCade Mini Centipede Arcade Replica

Finally, you don’t need quarters to play RepliCade’s mini arcade game that’s a sixth the size of the original. RepliCade partnered with Atari and brought back a 1980s arcade game classic: centipede. This throwback toy is tough, tiny, and totally addictive. And starting at one hundred twenty bucks, this rad retro replica can be your this spring.
