A small, inexpensive projector
You probably think of a large movie-style projector when you picture one. But projectors have shrunk drastically in recent years, and this particular one is about as small as they come. Even with its small size, it offers 1080P Full HD resolution, so you can view your phone screen in high definition up to 200 inches.

An LED mask is fun because of the versatility it offers. Instead of a single emotion, you can use this Magnetic Man LED Mask to display all kinds of emotions and feelings. All you have to do is use the downloadable Bluetooth app to control what is displayed and have fun.

Star Wars lighted chopsticks
Anyone who takes their sushi eating seriously needs to have their own chopsticks. There are a wide variety of chopsticks, but for Star Wars fans, a set that resembles a lightsaber is a good option. Although these chopsticks are made of plastic, they are BPA-free, so you don’t have to worry about the safety of them coming into contact with your food. These take LR41 camera batteries, but they come with a set to get you started and are easy to swap out if you need an extra pair.

Rock out with a fun retro Bluetooth speaker
While most of this device’s description is based on the fun pixel art display, it’s also a decent Bluetooth speaker, according to Amazon reviews. One reviewer said it’s loud and the sound quality is decent. They even compared the sound to the same level as an Alexa speaker.

Have a bathroom rave with a toilet night light
Just because something is weird doesn’t mean it isn’t useful. You might not think you need a night light for your toilet, but if you’ve ever woken up in the middle of the night and had a hard time getting back to sleep, you know a light like this comes in handy. This lamp has eight different colors, and it knows whether it is day or night so that it does not come on in the afternoon. It even has motion detection, so it knows when you enter the bathroom to do your business.

The perfect gag gift and a practical solution
$9 20 USD Save $11
Everyone must use the bathroom. Chances are you’ve probably had to use the restroom late at night, too. It’s hard to see, which is where this motion-sensing toilet night light saves the day (or night). It illuminates the toilet bowl without having to turn on the bathroom light, making it easier to fall asleep. If you often use the bathroom at night, this is not only a fun item, but it’s actually practical.
A clock that shows the time in words
A clock can be the focal point of a room. Sure, it tells you and your guests what time it is, but it can also serve as a functional piece of art. This LED word clock doesn’t use numbers to show the time, opting instead to spell it out. It’s something different that will also look great in any space and it’s discounted on Black Friday, making it a better buy.

A Bluetooth meat thermometer
Whether you’re a big fan of cooking or you’re buying a gift for someone who loves to cook, this Bluetooth thermometer takes checking meat temperatures to the next level. It supports Bluetooth 5.2 with a range of up to 500 feet, so you can control the temperature from across your home if you want. If you use it with a smoker, for example, you can see where your meat is in the cooking process without getting up to check. The ThermoPro TempSpike even has an alarm that tells you when the food has reached the desired temperature.

Can you get a much cheaper food thermometer that doesn’t connect to your phone via bluetooth? Yes. Will it be as cold (or hot, depending on how long it’s been cooking) as this one? Probably not.
A rechargeable air duster
If you’re tired of having a dusty keyboard and buying compressed air all the time to keep it clean, you might want to consider a rechargeable air duster. This one from Meudeen is on sale until Black Friday, and it can save you money in the long run if you use cans of compressed air often.

We’ve long loved Rocketbook smart notebooks, and the Core Reusable Smart Notebook is the company’s flagship model.

How did we pick these weird deals?
Finding weird stuff isn’t as easy as you might think, but that’s the kind of work we’re willing to do for you. We dug through the depths of Amazon to find the odd tech products you might not expect to see on sale for Black Friday. From there, we checked the price to see if they were discounted enough to be worth your attention, so only a select few items actually made the list. We also looked at the reviews to ensure the products meet our high standards before recommending them to you.
What makes a tech gadget “weird?”
Calling a product “weird” is admittedly subjective. There is no right or wrong answer to what is weird and what is a more traditional device. Essentially, we were looking for devices that aren’t a simple Bluetooth speaker or typical headphones. Rather, we dug through to find products that are a little outside the box once you take them out of the box, either via their multi-functionality, niche form factor, or even by filling a niche you didn’t know needed to be filled.
