Black Friday/Cyber Monday weekend is all about finding the best tech deals and indulging in impulse buys for random things because why not? I've scoured the ends of the internet Amazon for some of the most random/interesting tech or tech-related items I could find, hopefully to inspire you to buy things you might not otherwise have thought of.

Kinda like a smart mug that can keep your beverages warm, or this rather colorful putty gel stuff used to clean the various nooks and crannies of your car, keyboard, office supplies, and other random items. In fact, Android Central's own Jerry Hildenbrand swears by it — he buys a few every year during Black Friday/Cyber Monday weekend because you can't really beat $5 for a colorful jar of putty that not only looks fun to play with but also has a practical use.

Looking for a fun yet easy way to clean your keyboard or the inside of your car? Well, you should try this colorful putty, as it's malleable enough to fit within the nooks and crannies of most spaces, picking up dust, debris, and other particles for a clean look. It's also reusable and comes in different colors.

But there's more where that came from. Many of the items on this list are incredibly affordable and practical, while others may cost a little more and aren't so much "random" as they are just interesting. For example, one item's sole purpose is to jiggle your computer mouse, and that's it. I also love singing in the shower, so why not upgrade my setup with a Bluetooth speaker in my showerhead?
