Pinpoint any minor inconvenience in your life and odds are the right technology can fix it. In fact, the very definition of technology is "the application of scientific knowledge for practical purposes," and the best luxury gadgets for 2020 are no exception. If you want to make your life easier and more lavish than it's ever been, these products should be at the top of your wish list.
Why? There's no denying we've been in the midst of a technological revolution. Since the creation of the internet, technology has advanced at an exponential rate. (Remember just 15 years ago, when most people had answering machines and Apple had just released its nano iPod to replace your Walkman?) Now, it's difficult to imagine life without virtual assistants, smart gadgets, and doorbells with built-in video cameras. You can Facetime with your doctors, feed your dog treats remotely while you're out and about, and get virtually anywhere using just the navigation on your phone.
But your home life has the potential to be even better. Imagine vacuuming your entire house without having to get up off the couch. Imagine if your steak always came out tender and juicy, and if the thermostat in your house was forever set to your ideal temperature. Picture a world in which you would never lose your keys and could throw a homemade pizza party in your own backyard.
If all of those things sound too good to be true, they're not — welcome to the future. Some of these products just hit the market and others have been picking up traction for months, but either way, your life will never be the same. Whether you're looking for cutting-edge, high-tech toys for your home or tech gifts for someone you love, these are the most luxurious gadgets on the market in 2020.
