The 2022 Esquire Gadget Awards

It's that time of year again, when we dweebs and dorks curl up in our beds, while dreams of sweet gadgets dance through our heads. The forces that be have released more chips, screens, phones, and tablets for the Esquire Gadget Zone to narrow down before your holiday shopping. (Or a selfish upgrade. Hey, we're not judging.) Boy, was 2022 a doozy. Sort of gone are the days where we're stuck at home, but also sort of not. With some of the most aggressive competition between the tech bigwigs we've ever seen, some return to graces, and some dark horses, so where do you start? Well, Esquire's nerd patrol has you covered with the best daily tech out there, and some of the weirdest and coolest inventions of the year.
