Posted December 13, 2016 By  Cynthia Harvey

Every year, aspiring entrepreneurs unveil a host of unusual tech products, and 2016 was no exception. This slideshow highlights ten of the more unique gadgets from the year.

Quite a few of these products are related to one of the hottest trends in technology right now: the Internet of Things (IoT). In fact, many of the items featured in this slideshow connect to a mobile app that enables some of their more noteworthy features. Our world is slowly becoming more connected, and that includes our appliances, clothing, toys and other everyday items.

Some of these products are available for purchase now, but more of them are still in development. Some even still have active fundraising campaigns on Kickstarter or Indiegogo where you can contribute if any of these projects captures your imagination.

It's also worth mentioning that quite a few of these products debuted at last year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES). With CES 2017 scheduled for Jan. 5–8 in Las Vegas, a whole new crop of unusual products is just around the corner. Only time will tell if any of the weird gadgets from last year or this year sticks around and becomes successful.
