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.

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.

Hopefully, in the coming years, this product will be packed with more functionality to make its price worth it.
