Top tech devices we’re looking forward to using in 2016
There has been a lot of progress in the IT industry lately, and we are seeing more and more devices that can have the power to either make our lives easier, or simply to entertain us. These days there is a gadget that fulfils almost any need that we may have! Here is a list with the most exciting devices that are supposed to put a smile on our faces in 2016.
Ehang 184 is a new drone created by the Ehang company. So what is so special about this drone, you ask? Well, for starters, it can carry a human. Yes, you read that right! Soon we will have a drone that will be able to carry us around for over 20 minutes before needing a recharge. If you have ever wanted to own a chopper, but couldn’t afford to purchase one, it’s the time to start saving money for this drone, which is known to be much less expensive, and yet able to travel at speeds that exceed 50 miles/hour. And if you lack storage space, you will be pleased to hear that the drone has foldable arms and gull-wing doors.
Smart cars are a reality. New models are launched each year, and we are seeing remarkable progress with each new smart car generation. But what about the rest of us, who own older cars, which don’t incorporate modern technologies? If this question has been bothering you for some time, you will be glad to hear that Garmin, the company known mostly for its GPS systems, has invented Varia Vision. This is a VR accessory that can be mounted on your sunglasses, and then displays useful information about your driving habits and potential dangers. Of course, Varia Vision can also provide directions, helping you reach the destination as quickly as possible. Since the device is mounted on sunglasses, it can also be used by anyone traveling by foot, by bike or any other transportation means.
Did you know that over 25% of the people in the world suffer from insomnia? If you are one of those people, you will be glad to find out that Sleep Number, the company that has set the standards when it comes to bed manufacturing, has invented its first IT bed. The bed is fitted with lots of biometric sensors which track your body’s activity and make proper adjustments, helping you get a better, deeper sleep. The sensors monitor your heart rate, your sleeping habits and your breathing patterns. Don’t worry, your partner’s info is tracked as well, so you’ll only need a smart bed for two people.
Many people use the Roomba vacuum cleaner to keep their houses clean. And now, there is some sort of a Roomba for grills! If you are a lazy griller, you will definitely fall in love with the Grillbot, the device that will automatically clean any grill, no matter how dirty it is. Grillbot is already selling for a bit over $100, and has several replaceable metal bristles that help it move around, while cleaning the grill. Just let your grill cool a bit, place the Grillbot on top of it, and then go for your business.
