Some of our favorite tech creations are of the more obscure variety -- think mini chairs for your iPhone to "sit" on or bracelets that can convert into charging cords for when you're on the move. These fun devices, while quirky, do tend to serve a greater purpose. Take the iPhone chair for example. This tiny accessory helps ensure that your phone rests safely on your nightstand or dresser, and its design also feeds a charger through the chair, helping ensure your wires aren't bending and susceptible to breaking as you're juicing up your phone. Good idea, right?

Better yet, plenty of these wacky but delightful items are economical. Many of them are under 25 bucks. But hey, don't just take our word for it. Ahead, we've compiled a list of fun, innovative gadgets and tech accessories.
