technology artiles gadgets released in 2017

To gather a list of what is truly necessary for the modern man, we pulled our collective resources — Gear Patrol co-founder Eric Yang, staff writers, contributors and steadfast friends like Jeff Carvalho, partner and executive editor at Highsnobiety. We asked them to limit their choices to 20 essentials — those pieces that truly make a substantive improvement in everyday life. The resultant list is full of globetrotting gadgets like power banks and compact cameras, as well as more stable fixtures for the home, such as 4K TVs and home speakers; no matter which of the bunch calls to you, there’s something sure to make your life better.
Right off the bat, the first thing that you will notice regarding this watch is the fact that it has a very sleek and elegant design while at the same time having all the functions and appeal of a sports watch. This is because this watch was designed to work and match a vast majority of apparel choices, from business to casual and sporty to smart. It features military-grade housing, while the actual belt and cover are made out of softer and more comfortable materials. This makes it easy and comfortable to wear while at the same time still capable and resilient.
Skully Technologies launched an ill-fated Indiegogo campaign in 2016, raising nearly $2.5 million in preorders for a motorcycle helmet with AR features, and then folding. Backers of that campaign will soon receive the Fenix AR — a helmet with a rear-view camera that displays a 180-degree view on a transparent display. It supports turn-by-turn navigation and  (when connected to a phone via Bluetooth) voice commands, making phone calls and playing music.
You likely lose your wallet, smartphone, keys and/or remote control frequently. Losing things is normal. But instead of dealing with the frustrations of losing these items, there’s a better way to cope: the TrackR StickR. Where are the keys? Where did you put your wallet? Where is your phone? Trackr solves that problem. It is a quarter-sized device that can be fastened to any item, and then users are able to use the companion app to find whatever the device is attached to. When you lose your wallet, you simply pull up the app on your smartphone and you can make the StickR beep. You can also set up the app to alert you when you venture too far from it, and can use the TrackR StickR to also find your phone, even if it is on silent. It works with both iOS and Android. I have one attached to my remote control so I never have to worry about losing it.
The e-Palette is Toyota’s new, modular transportation platform that looks inspired by both shipping container and toaster. It comes in three sizes ranging from 4 meters (about 13 feet) to approximately 7 meters (around 23 feet) and is designed to be flexible and reconfigurable to accommodate the needs of Toyota’s partners on the project, which include Amazon, Pizza Hut, Uber and others.
Fancy serving your loved one a hearty breakfast that’s perfect for the royalty? Instead of toiling on different kitchen utensils and cookware, you may want to use the Hamilton Beach 25490A Dual Breakfast Sandwich Maker instead. Just imagine being able to toast your buns while also cooking some delicious salami or ham before topping it with perfectly fried sunny side ups, fresh tomatoes, onions, lettuce, and finishing it off with piping hot, crispy half-buns. Not only are you able to cook and assemble all of these in just one device, you also get to make two of these hearty sandwiches at the same time.
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.
This little gadget features an extendable claw that can be pushed into strawberries to easily extract stems, instead of you having to pull them out by hand. This is a necessary tool for anyone who loves strawberries but hates money.

With a sturdy case, separate charging locations, and many pockets, there is no way that work is going to get lost. And, what happens when something is damaged after it is bought? Don’t worry! It comes with a lifetime warranty and a 100% refund for three months, and it has the support that many backpacks lack.

The Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum Wireless Gaming Mouse is the best mouse on the market, and I don’t mean just PC gaming mouse. Not only does it have a great weight to it, a cool-looking design, and an LED light that can be set to whatever color you’d like (or cycled through all of the colors), but it is ergonomically pleasing to boot. It runs on a charge (that lasts for 30 hours on a single charge), and it can be used while charging. Best of all, it’s incredibly responsive, with up to a 12,000 DPI (that you can adjust with just the click of a button ON THE FLY). This is especially great if you’re playing a shooter or something else that would benefit from changing the mouse sensitivity on the go. I’ve never been so impressed with a computer mouse in my entire life, and I’ve gone through quite a few of them in my day. If you’re looking to upgrade your workstation, I enthusiastically recommend the G900.
For me, it’s my silicone garlic roller. Pop a clove of garlic in, roll it on the counter for a bit, and out pops your peeled garlic! I make a lot of dishes with a lot of garlic, including homemade hummus, and I didn’t know these things existed until a few months ago. It saves me so much trouble, and garlic smell on my hands! —hordeoralliancewtf
So far my favorite part about the NEGG boiled egg peeler is 18 seconds into the demo video. That’s when a patient-looking grandma hand gets frustrated with her old-fashioned egg-peeling efforts and squashes the whole…
This is is a simple character-building game. It relies on reaction time, calmness, and the ability of a player to tune his or her own reflexes to the point where they are lightning sharp. The idea is for each player to grab a handle, press the button, and wait for the suspenseful music to play. Once the music finishes, a light will shine in the middle, at which point all players have to pull the triggers on their handles as fast as possible. The last player gets a very small and very mild electrical jolt. Quite exciting, to say the least.
No smart home will ever be complete with Alexa providing the virtual personal assistant that everyone needs. And whenever Alexa is involved, you’d better have 2nd generation of the Amazon Echo Dot as her shelter. The Echo Dot is the means to which Alexa is able to control many of your smart devices at home. It connects various devices allowing you to play music, watch videos, play games, and even establish and maintain a connection with your social contacts, all by issuing commands for Alexa to listen to and execute. The Echo Dot opens up many fascinating aspects of an ultra-modern, super-smart home.
Whenever you feel sketched out, press Cuff to immediately ping trusted contacts with your location. Your friends and family will be able to see who is viewing the alert, so they can coordinate your rescue. The jewelry connects to your phone via Bluetooth and also vibrates when your contacts call or text.
Sometimes we couldn’t be any grateful for technology and, well, this is one of those times.  We never take for granted how cool and convenient it is to be able to listen to our music from our phone to our wireless bluetooth speaker.  There are a ton of options out there and it can […]
There are many different kinds of water purification systems out there in the market, with some of them even having special plates that will increase the alkaline count of the water, claiming to be able to play a role in alleviating certain illnesses and sickness. Mitte would like to jump aboard the water purification bandwagon, but offer a twist to the situation instead by being a smart healthy water system. In other words, it will make use of the distillation process to purify your water, but also offer customized mineral enhancements that ensures each cup of water you drink is healthy.
The season of giving is coming, and the forecast is a whirlwind of invitations, cookies, and eggnog. There’s so much good cheer out there, but it’s missing from the one place you really need to go: the mall. Save yourself the trouble and shop at home (preferably with the aforementioned treats).
If you love nature but aren’t exactly the “roughing it” type, or are intrigued by culture and history but not at the expense of modern amenities and comforts, then the Mirror Houses might be just the place for your next adventure. Designed by Italian architect Peter…
As a lifelong animal lover, you want nothing more than to keep the animals in your life safe. While pet owner technology has gone from simple collars with bone-shaped name tags to the microchip, there’s not a lot on the market that will let you monitor your canine’s…
Denon’s Design Series was conceived with the sole aim of providing a high-performance hi-fi in a beautiful package, meaning you never need to compromise between form and function. Building on the success of the initial line, the firm has expanded the range with the addition of three new models. The PMA-60 amplifier builds on the success of the PMA-50, which it replaces, while the PMA-30 offers an even more affordable entry point for the range, and the DCD-100 CD player is designed to match the DRA-100 network audio receiver.
Nvidia’s tech isn’t just about gaming. Volkswagen CEO Herbert Diess took the stage at Nvidia’s CES keynote, where he said the automaker will integrate Nvidia’s just-announced Drive IX platform into the I.D. Buzz. This will let it recognize people as they approach the car, unlock the door for the owner or other trusted people, and tailor the in-car experience through personalization.
Because now Alexa can actually show you how to do things instead of just telling you!  Watch your video flash briefings, listen to music or watch videos, enjoy hands free face-to-face calling, hook it up to your home security cameras or monitoring systems and simply ask Alexa to “show you the front door” to see who’s there. It can basically do everything that your first echo could do, but now way more!
Even in our own homes, it’s amazing how many toxins and chemicals (and dust, of course) can be found in the air around us. It’s actually terrifying, so I recommend you don’t Google any of the statistics. With that being said, one of the cool gadgets for men (and women) that we love is this Awair Smart Air Quality Monitor. It analyzes the air quality around you, monitoring things like carbon dioxide, toxic chemicals, and dust, as well as temperature and humidity (although, admittedly, you don’t really need the two latter since those are things you can typically just feel). Still, it hooks up to an app on your smartphone, and will send you alerts when the quality of air changes. It’s like a high-tech carbon dioxide monitor that also does a ton of other monitoring for you. And, it has an LED on the front for a quick snapshot of the air quality around you. Want to impress your friends with a futuristic-looking gadget? The Awair monitor is a great choice.

Help the women in your life plant some roots by gifting them a plant from The Sill. This New York City-based startup hand pots every plant and guarantees they’ll last for at least 30 days. So, even if your friend lacks a green thumb she’ll at least have something green and growing for a month after you give this gift. The Sill ships nationwide and delivers even more varieties in the New York area.
