As time goes on, our technological devices will continue to shrink in size, but their portability and their capacity to hold more data than previously imaginable while also performing a wide range of different functions at high speeds is constantly increasing. The biggest brands in the tech industry are always finding innovative ways to keep consumers coming back for more. The market is currently saturated with home and office gadgets that you probably never imagined you’d ever need but suddenly want just because they’re fascinating and available.
If that sounds like you, then here are the top 9 gadgets of 2018 that are perfect for your home and work life.
1. Virtual Assistant
Virtual assistants such as Siri or Alexa are technological applications or programs that can comprehend and respond to natural language. They perform the same functions as the traditional secretary or personal assistant, except they’re digital entities that operate according to your personal needs. You can instruct them to do virtually anything like reading your texts and e-mails out loud and responding to them; scheduling personal or professional appointments; making phone calls; setting appointment and meeting reminders; placing orders for you; and so much more. Short of picking up your coffee or lunch orders physically, virtual assistants are capable of helping you tick each item off your daily to-do list one by one.
2. Power Bank
Power banks are an indispensable accessory for technology users on-the-go. Major tech companies completely understand that you lead a very busy life and you need your technological devices to be able to keep up with your daily demands. Long-lasting batteries, fast charging features, and durability are just a few of the main functions you expect from your modern technological devices and with a high-performance power bank that’s capable of charging multiple devices simultaneously, that’s exactly what you’ll be getting.
3. Multi-Port USB Chargers
Another palpable option for charging multiple devices at the same time is investing in a multi-port portable USB charger for your home and office. You can charge as many devices as need be from your tablet to your laptop or smartphone and anything in between without diminishing the charging capacity or speed of any of the devices that are connected. Also, you’ll never have to worry about overcharging any of your technological devices because once their batteries are fully charged, the power supply stops.
4. Wireless Headphones
Regardless of whether you’re at home, at work, or commuting via public transit, wireless headphones are the perfect technological accessory to help you listen to music and keep you focused at all times. Apple was one of the first innovative tech companies to introduce wireless earbuds, but you can also get high-quality noise canceling over-the-ear headphones for a relatively affordable price without the hassle of having wires getting in your way.
5. The Charge M.E.
A multi-port Charge M.E. (short for Charging Mobile Electronics) with the capacity to charge numerous devices all at once and support different types of USB cables is also an ideal must-have item for every tech geek. Keep one at home and at the office so that you can use them whenever you need to and you’ll never have to worry about finding a convenient place to charge your devices again!
6. Fitness Devices
Fitness devices are all the rage these days because everyone is trying to get in shape and maintain a healthy lifestyle. With these devices you can track your steps, calorie intake, calories burned, the foods you’re eating, the quality and length of your sleep, and your activity levels. Some of the applications that are associated with these devices also allow female users to track their menstrual cycles. Plus, you now have the option of wearing them as fashionable bracelets or necklaces and they come in an assortment of colours and sizes to suit everyone’s needs.
7. Smartwatch Docks
Like any other device, smartwatches also need feasible, stylish, and convenient charging solutions. That’s why the smartwatch charging dock was invented. These devices can charge your beloved smartwatch while you’re busy doing other things like working at the office or puttering around the house. Most of them now come with fast charging capabilities so you won’t have to leave them on the charger for too long and you’ll know when the watch is finished charging because the light will change from a red to green colour.
8. Wireless Motion Sensors
Motion sensor lights aren’t just a great way to keep the exterior and interior of your home well lit, they can also ward off potential robbers and help you see in the dark when your hands are too full to reach for a light switch. These nifty devices can help protect your home from a break-in by deterring intruders from approaching your home after the lights automatically turn on as they’re approaching. Conveniently placed and affordable, wireless motion sensors are also typically battery operated and come in different sizes and styles depending on what you like.
Do you have an old school laptop that lacks touchscreen capabilities? Have no fear because the airbar is here! The way it works is that you simply have to connect the device’s USB cord to your laptop and it magically (well, there’s some science involved, too) transforms your laptop’s screen into a touchscreen! Once the device is connected to your laptop, the airbar creates an invisible light field around your laptop’s screen allowing it to function as a touchscreen. The best part is that you don’t have to purchase a specific stylus or use your bare hands to touch the screen and control its functions. It doesn’t matter if you use the back of a pen or are wearing gloves, the screen will still respond to your physical commands!
