I’m not a huge gadget person but I LOVE the shower speaker I got on Amazon. It’s awesome for so much more than just the shower. I use it to play music in my room and also stick it to the window in my car! Money well spent. —ginababy417

Name and image defines that it is a Hand bag which is stylish but as it listed on this to 14 then there may be some speciality in it right. Yes, there is special thing that in built in it that is very useful to most of the smart gadget users.
The unique design features a technology called planar magnetics, which uses two magnetic fields to activate the circuitry printed onto a piece of clear film the width of a white blood cell. This creates studio-quality surround sound ranging from superior treble up to 900Hz, right down to the mighty bass at lows of 5Hz. Everything from the leather travel case they’ll arrive in to the silver plaited cable and the understated retro design of the magnesium housing (designed by BMW Designworks) whispers quality.
The Modular: Nest’s products aren’t quite as geared toward external connectivity as they are to making your home a safer and more comfortable space. But what they do offer is very capable.

Breathalyzers are fine, but the Skyn band tracks your blood-alcohol content in real time and proves to you that you’re a lightweight. I’m not sure you could read that screen after a few too many, though.
The Boob Cube is for idiots. And for geniuses. And for idiots who want to convince people they’re really geniuses. And for geniuses you want to make feel like idiots. So, yeah, pretty much an ideal gift for any person…
Sometimes the smartest smartwatch is one that doesn’t look like one. The Kate Spade Holland Bracelet Hybrid Smartwatch is as apt as any other smartwatch (with vibration alerts, music controls, selfie snapping, automatic time-zone changing) and doesn’t even need charging. With a mother-of-pearl dial and a gold case, it’s a stunner, too.
A lot of women I asked for help with this guide mentioned smart cooking tools. While I don’t want to relegate us all to the kitchen, Nomiku, a sous-vide for the digital age, was definitely tops in a couple discussions and deserves a mention. The device connects to your smartphone to help you get a perfect piece of tender cooked meat every time and retails at $200 for the original version or $250 if you want one with WiFi.
As example, when you are listening to your favorite songs with 3-speaker virtual surround sound and there is a call coming, Jabra freeway will read out the name of incoming caller to notice you. What you just do next is using your voice to make and answer the call.
Again, does everyone need to pay $230 for a tire pressure monitoring system like the Fobo Tire Plus? Probably not, but if you can afford the premium, it’s a straightforward tool that can help reduce a common headache for car owners. It’s a set of Bluetooth-enabled sensors that measure tire pressure and temperature in real time, send that data back to your phone, and warn you of any forthcoming issues.
This nifty little camera is the perfect companion for a crazy night out. Its small body allows you to tuck it away in your shirt pocket, so you can bring it everywhere. The 10-Megapixel sensor can capture a ton of detail for a wide range of uses. The integrated micro SD card slot can hold cards up to 32GB — more space than you’ll ever need.

In two minutes, you’ll know if that casserole is sans gluten. The device fits inside a purse or bag, so toting it to restaurants is no problem. Within two years, the company also plans to produce units to detect the presence of peanuts, tree nuts or milk ingredients.
The Beast: Beefier than some home speakers, this is the best option for anybody looking to blast tunes for the entire beach. You can toss it right in the sand and it’ll be fine. It’s designed for it. Best of all, it can charge your phone while playing music if it’s plugged into this monster.
Essentially a mobile security camera with some smart-home control capabilities, when Kuri ships about a year from now it will roam your home checking on your kids and pets when you’re not home. It looks like a robot, though, so it’s cool just for that.

Motion sensor trash cans that open with the wave of a hand aren’t new. But companies are updating their features. The Simplehuman can ($200) uses infrared technology to sense a hand. Also, the bin recognizes commands such as “Open can.” The lid won’t close until all debris is tossed in. Another option (not pictured): The Nine Stars DZT-50-28 ($90) opens with a hand wave, then closes automatically a few seconds later.
All of that becomes less useful if you have to reach over and grab your device just to confirm what you’re doing. A basic holder puts the phone where you can see it, making things just a little less stressful. Magnetic mounts tend to work just fine here — one like the TechMatte MagGrip Air Vent is cheap yet unobstructive, while its CD slot-based sibling is a bit sturdier for those who can spare the space.
Fine, fine. It’s a vacuum. BUT it’s a wireless robot cleaning vacuum they’ll actually want this year! Roomba 980 from iRobot not only vacuums up almost anything (with technology that won’t let it fall down the stairs) you can also schedule cleaning while you’re away at work via the app and then it automatically recharges itself when it’s done. I mean. #Technology

This is a user-friendly and aesthetically pleasing alternative to the bulky and often cumbersome phone holders. It is literally what it says it is: a magnetic phone holder. It is easy to install; just place it on the dash of the car and stick your phone on top. While it is a magnetic holder, the magnetic values are kept so low that it will not interfere with the circuitry of the phones themselves. This means that it is completely safe to use. It also works well with all phones, regardless of make and model, as long as it has metallic components to adhere to the mount.
