Technology is expanding and improving all of the time in ways that enhance our lives and make our daily tasks a little more streamlined. With the advent of 3D printers, for example, there are revolutionary possibilities. Human tissues can be replicated, plane parts copied, and art projects created with these innovative 3D processes. But, there’s so much more than just futuristic printers in the world of notable tech. There are plenty of gadgets within your reach that can help you live your life better and make it a little cooler, too.
Here are some of our favorite tech tools:
1. Rechargeable Lighter
Always looking for a lighter and when you finally find it, it’s out of gas? A rechargeable lighter solves that issue and can come in handy when you’re out in the wilderness, dealing with winds that would make matches and traditional lighters useless. The Tesla Coil arc lighter uses an electric arc that can’t be blown out by wind and gives you up to 300 lights on just one charge.
2. Video-Capable Sunglasses
What if you could take pictures or record video from your exact perspective? With the special HD Spectacles, you can. It’s water-resistant so you can take fun beach or pool day high definition photos or capture video. Upload your P.O.V. content in circular format to relive your memories exactly as you experienced them or change it to rectangular or square formats for social media uploading.
3. Aura Photography Machine
Do you find yourself curious about how energy affects the world, people, and environment surrounding you? Have you ever been curious about your aura? An aura photography camera by Inneractive can give you some insight into your own unique energy stamp and take you on a journey of self-discovery.
4. Mini Smart Speaker
Maybe you want to make your home smarter. After all, the right technology in your home could help you save money on energy bills and increase your overall productivity. The Google Home Mini small smart speaker by Google is the answer: it can do a lot more than just play music.
Google Assistant is built right in so you have help at your fingertips at all times – it can sync to your Google Calendar, recognize your voice, and remotely connect to Spotify, just to name a few capabilities.
5. Portable Espresso Maker
Survive the outdoors or just make camping more fun with the right gadgets. One way to guarantee camping is actually enjoyable is making sure you have adequate caffeine while you’re out battling the elements in Mother Nature. And for that, we recommend Nanopresso, a portable espresso maker by Wacaco. It’s capable of producing 18 bars of pressure to make delicious espresso – with the help of some manual work from your hands, of course.
6. WiFi Motion Sensor
Home security has never been easier. With the iHome Motion Sensor iSB01, you’ll have complete peace of mind. It will send an alert if anything is picked up on the WiFi-enabled motion sensor.
This Fenix 5S Plus is a Garmin smartwatch that’s part of the growing wearable technology trend. Record your exercise, store and play up to 500 different songs, and use Garmin Pay for contactless payment. Plus, you’ll enjoy powerful navigation capability that goes beyond GPS alone.
8. Bluetooth Tracker Device
Do you lose your keys or wallet all of the time? If you’re a bit scatterbrained when it comes to organization, invest in a Bluetooth tracker like the Tile Pro which has a range of 300 feet. You can use the app on your phone to sound an alarm to more easily find those pesky keys.
9. Smart Scale
Your health is so much more than your weight and your scale should reflect this fact. Eufy BodySense is a smart scale that evaluates your weight, your BMI, and full-body makeup which goes straight to your smartphone. You can pair it with third party health apps like Apple Health and FitBit to get a better idea of where your fitness is at.
10. Virtual reality headsets
If you think your gaming experience is already pretty immersive, just wait until you get your hands on a virtual reality headset like the Oculus Rift. You can set up virtual borders where you can move around freely in virtual space. Instead of controlling a character on the screen, you are the character.
Gaming gadgets have improved leaps and bounds from the Sega days – so why not take advantage of these amazing advances?
Technology That’s Right for You
Whatever you’re looking for, whether it’s getting yourself a piping hot cup of espresso while you’re out backpacking or choosing a device that can act as a virtual assistant – there’s something in the tech world for everyone.
