The world has become a better place, thanks to the continuous innovations brought about by technology. With the products we use today from phones to laptops to cars to automatic devices, our lives have greatly become pretty convenient and we should not be surprised if, in the near future, we will be like kings and queens sitting on a chair with everything we need is served in front of us by gadgets, devices or robots!

We see a lot of futuristic products on sci-fi movies, but what we don’t know is that some of them have already been materialized in real life. Ironically, their simplicity makes some people find them complex and hard to use, most especially those who are not tech-savvy. Gadgets are even becoming “intelligent” that some of us are already growing scared of this smart-tech generation.

Nonetheless, here are 12 very smart gadgets recently released that are proving useful but you or other people around you might not be ready to embrace, just yet.

#1 SpotMini

Technology might be making us lazier and the SpotMini is diligent enough to do a very simple task of just picking up objects at home or the office. This robot was created by the engineering and robotics design company, Boston Dynamics, which produced the BigDog robot for the U.S. military. Hopefully, in the coming years, this product will be packed with more functionality to make its price worth it.

#2 ORII


If you think the smartwatch is already smart enough, wait before you discover the functions of the smart ring. This ring allows you a full hands-free control of your smartphone. You can now take calls just by holding the ring up to your ear without touching any button or screen. And don’t underestimate the quality of this small device as it is said to have a crystal clear audio. Furthermore, you can send messages and make social media posts with the ring, perhaps through voice-activated commands.

#3 SGNL

And just when we introduced the smart ring comes a more amazing invention. By strapping the Sgnl band to your smartwatch, any phone call is now a fingertip away. The device currently works with Apple Watch, Samsung Gear or Pebble Time. The band works by transmitting a vibration through your hand and finger, which later translates into a sound in the ear.

#4 Muzo

#7 Zungle

If you are a music lover but you don’t want to damage your ear with headphones, then the Zungle is the device to buy. The Zungle is actually a pair of sunglasses that uses bone conduction technology to transmit sound directly into your head.

It has taken years before we heard an innovation on toaster products. Well, the Griffin Toaster doesn’t actually do that much but it is still cool to have it controlled by your phone. Now, you can select how toasted you want your toast and even get a notification on your phone when it is done toasting your bread.
