Raspberry Pi Model B – The Raspberry Pi has made quite a splash since it was first announced. The credit-card sized computer is capable of many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word-processing and games.

Lytro – We wrote about this camera, because it is one very interesting gadget. This camera captures the entire light field and you can change which point you focus on after you’ve taken the picture. Also, you can swap between standard view and 3D. Basically it opens up a whole new set of options for your snaps.

It is not in the Time’s top 5 gadgets, but we must add Samsung’s Galaxy SIII smartphone on the list. It has become the company’s most successful mobile handset to date, managing to sell over 20-million units in its first 100 days on market!
