It's been a few years since October 21, 2015, and we still don't have mass-produced self-tying Nike shoes. You can still make your life easier and more fun by using these futuristic gadgets that will help you live like it's 3019, that you can already find for sale no further than in the links in this post.
NAIL NFC CHIP
We live in the age when being implanted with a chip to use instead of your documents, credit cards and keys is a very convenient, though a bit disturbing thing that can soon become a reality. But before we are all a subject to mandatory tagging, some individuals choose to voluntarily wear these NFC nail chips.
There are three options, one can be used instead of an electronic pass, like the ones used to open doors and pay for bus fares (like Oyster Card in Britain or Octopus Card in Hong Kong); the second as a security tag for your phone, where the phone would unlock in the close proximity to the sensor; and the third that would light up when it is next to the phone. This manufacturer (Jakcom) also has a ring with the same features.
A device for people who don’t have dishwashers, and don’t enjoy washing dishes. This device that has been probably manufactured by gods because it sure makes washing dishes a heavenly process. It works with plates and bowls, and there is even a special setting for washing cutlery and chopsticks.
MOTION-SENSITIVE LIGHT STRIPS
Price: $7.48 – 10.77
Lights that greet you when you enter the room. They can be placed anywhere you want to: stairs, under cabinets, under the bed – as long as you can creatively lay the wires because they need a steady source of power. In addition to the motion sensor, they also have a brightness sensor, which means they won't waste your energy when they don't need to be working.
WINDOW CLEANING ROBOT
Cleaning windows is a tedious process. Ain't nobody got time for that. Except for this robot of course, the sole purpose of which is to scrub your glass clean of street grime and residual stem cells from nearby trees. This method of cleaning windows will take longer than a regular manual scrubbing, but it requires minimal effort.
Personally I would not buy one right now though, as these are just going through the first generation of these devices, and I would wait for an updated version instead once all the kinks and quirks (some people report that they fall off sometimes and that the power cord is not long enough for example), but if you really want to try one out right now, the link is below.
Personal modes of transportation like this can come quite handy and mostly acceptable in large cities, to get around from one place to another to avoid using public transit and to save time. This two-wheeler has an option for both using the electric motor, and to run it on gasoline as well. One charge should cover you for about 28 km, and if needed – it can be filled up with liquid dinosaurs.
It should be noted, that in some jurisdictions running a device like this on the road might require a drivers license and insurance (one dude in my city got ticketed for this, and subsequently scooters like this are no longer allowed for road use in the city).
WIRELESS POWER BANK
Price: $23.79 – 25.49
An 8,000 mAh charger with wireless charging capability. Just place the phone on it and walk away, and in 45 minutes (as per the manufacturer's claim) come back to the fully charged phone. If your phone does not support wireless charging, you can use a built-in cable that comes with the 3 major charger plugs – Micro-USB, USB type-C and iPhone plug as well.
AUTOMATIC MISTING MACHINE
If you often travel, work late, or just in general want to avoid having to continuously worry about watering your plants, here is an automated solution that will take the biggest headache out of it. It connects to an app where you can set your own schedule. The only thing you have to do is to refill the water container that the device will be taking the water from.
HOLOGRAM IMITATION PROJECTOR
A medium-sized hologram imitation projector that comes with a micro-SD card and software for creating the images included with it. The device with a few LED’s spins around itself and projects an image while doing so. The projector can be turned on manually or using the remote control that’s included with the purchase.
If you own a storefront or a cafe this can be an pretty new and unique way to promote your new products and offers, if not – this is a pretty expensive toy.
