Technology has come a long way since its humble beginnings. Made by the nerds of the world, for the nerds of the world, tech gadgets have gone from being a niche only understood by a small contingent of people to being a worldwide craze that even celebrities rave about.
In this list, we take a look at 5 celebrities and their gadgets that they cannot live without.
1. Gordon Ramsay
It is not surprising that Gordon Ramsay would name something out of his kitchen as his go-to gadget.
A veteran of the culinary arts, Gordon names NutriBullet’s Bullet Blender as the one tech that he cannot live without. The relatively inexpensive blender at $80 is used to blend fruits, vegetables, and nuts to create smoothies.
Gordon also names his Philips Airfryer as his other go-to gadget. The fryer uses up to 80% less oil compared to a regular fryer with the same results. The gadget goes for $250 and is a worthwhile investment to staying healthy with minimal dietary compromise.
2. 50 Cent
Rapper 50 Cent is no stranger to tech. The singer/songwriter works with state-of-the-art recording instruments and synthesizers.
However, he names his SMS Audio headphones, his Macbook Air, and his Canon camera as his three essential gadgets.
He owns the company that creates SMS headphones, so there may be some bias, but an essential part of any recording artist's repertoire is his laptop and the Macbook Air goes for a minimum of $999. He also uses a high-end Canon camera to document his work.
3. Pharrell Williams
Pharrell's gadget of choice is his Apple smartwatch. The singer/songwriter was one of the first ones to get to use the Apple smartwatch first hand, and since then, has not been able to stop raving about them.
Pharrell had his smartwatch customized to be made out of gold and is one of the brand ambassadors of the watch.
The wearable smartphone syncs up with people's smartphones and is used to perform a litany of different functions, including measuring heart rate, and blood pressure.
4. Snoop Dogg
Snoop Dogg is an avid gamer when he is not being a multi-million dollar rapper. His device of choice is Microsoft's Xbox One. The gaming console goes for $242 and above.
Following server issues, Snoop has since moved to Sony's Playstation 4 which goes for $257 and above.
On his gaming rig, he enjoys playing sports games like NBA 2K, and FIFA, but he also plays arcade games like Tekken and first-person shooters like the Battlefield series.
