Elon Musk once said, “If you go back a few hundred years, what we take for granted today would seem like magic – being able to talk to people over long distances, to transmit images, fly, access vast amounts of data like an oracle. These are all things that would have been considered magic a few hundred years ago.”
And this everyday magic that we see and use in our day-to-day lives happens because of gadgets. These incredible, remarkable, cool gadgets are nothing short of a miracle. Besides helping us live more comfortably, these innovative devices help us get more efficient, save precious time, keep us healthy and stress-free, etc. In short, if you ask Gen Alpha, Gen Z, or even the millennials or Gen X, gadgets are a boon to their existence, almost considered as the “basic” necessities. And all these gadgets (with a few exceptions, of course, because nothing is perfect) are worth every penny.
So, let’s look at the top choices of techy devices one can use in everyday life. Carefully curated by our expert team, these new cool gadgets will surely come in handy when you’re in a bind or simply in your daily lives. Have a look!
Since their launch, smartphones have been a precious commodity to humanity. So much so that now it’s become indispensable to us, almost like a basic necessity one needs to survive. You cannot leave without your smartphone with you wherever you go, even if it’s just a short trip to a nearby grocery. The reason is that these “mini computers” can do tasks beyond making and receiving calls or texts or clicking pictures. Modern-day phones can make video calls, even help you make payments, and much more. But most important of all, it supports the internet. And our world today cannot survive without the internet. Besides, there are so many innovations in the smartphone space, undoubtedly making them the most essential and coolest gadgets on the market.
The days of a watch just telling you the time and date are gone. Instead, we live in the age of highly innovative and technically advanced watches. After smartphones, we can consider smartwatches as the next significant-tech gadget one needs in daily life. The reason is that they are a quick way to stay up to date with all your phone calls, messages, and other notifications. A smartwatch is like a phone on your wrist. In addition, it tracks and helps you maintain your physical health, mental well-being, sleep cycle, menstrual cycle, and stress. And this is just an overview of what a smartwatch can do. All in all, a smartwatch is truly a gift to the world.
Besides being a way to avoid small talk when commuting or traveling, headphones/earphones allow you to immerse yourself into a world of your own. And gone are the days when you had to deal with untangling the wires of your earphones. Modern-day headphones and earphones are wireless that supports Bluetooth connectivity. Thus, no dealing with or getting frustrated by wayward wires. Furthermore, today some headphones and earphones come with Active Noise Canceling technology, which enhances the immersive listening experience. Be it listening to music, or podcasts, or even watching movies or dramas, headphones/earphones are convenient, especially when there are people around you. Besides providing you privacy and improving your listening experience, they help avoid any disturbance to other people.
Who knew riding a two-wheel ride would become extremely fun and techy? Hoverboards are motorized two-wheel rides with a platform where a person plants their feet. It’s like a skateboard but only motorized, and the rider faces the same direction as their feet, unlike a skateboard. In addition, a rider can control the hoverboard with their weight. For instance, it goes forward when one leans their body forward, and so on. Thus, making it easy and fun to ride, especially for teenagers.
Reusable Smart Notebooks
Save paper so you can save trees! – slogans like this are pretty common. And the tech world likely took it quite seriously by inventing reusable smart notebooks. Yes, you heard that right – notebooks that you can reuse. Sounds pretty impressive, right? Reusable smart notebooks give you that traditional pen-paper writing experience while helping you save paper and, in turn, the environment by reducing waste. All you require is a pen designed specifically for it and a damp cloth. And you can even scan and save whatever you write on a companion app on your phone. So, all you need to do is write, scan to record, and wipe it away with a damp cloth. Easy-peasy, right?
Okay, so all the other tools like an extra laptop screen, wireless charger, posture corrector, and more aside, the most important one is likely a mug warmer. The reason is that sometimes after a long weekend or a particularly long day, concentrating on work is like pulling teeth. So, to enhance focus and keep better track of work, coffee (or tea) becomes essential. But getting up to reheat it can be distracting. True, it is essential to take breaks between work if your mind’s muddled. However, imagine being immersed in a particular project or assignment, like you are in the flow, and you reach out to take a sip of your coffee to clear your throat, and it’s empty! Now, wouldn’t that be frustrating? Thus, to keep your tea or coffee at that perfect temperature you like or prefer, a mug warmer is a must.
Digital Kitchen Scale
A digital kitchen scale might be one of the most significant devices in one’s kitchen. The reason is it can help you make a dish perfect. Besides, it is common knowledge that the amount and type of ingredients are vital to perfect any dish. So, what better, easy, and quick way to measure ingredients than a digital kitchen scale? A pinch less salt, a bit more vinegar, or even a little extra water might ruin an ideal dish. In addition, this gadget is especially significant when you are baking. Like Peter Reinhart (the famous baker) said, “It’s all about a balancing act between time, temperature, and ingredients: That’s the art of baking.”
So far, we have seen various gadgets, some indispensable like phones and smartwatches, others you can use in day-to-day life, and some that help you relax and add a fun factor to a monotonous schedule. And this one last cool gadget on our list is undoubtedly another one you’d want in your life – a self-adjusting brightness lamp. When Thomas Edison invented the incandescent light bulb, he surely wouldn’t have imagined a world where a lamp adjusted its brightness according to ambient light. Or maybe he did imagine it. We’ll never know! In any case, technology has made it possible for there to be one – a smart lamp that can adjust its brightness according to the surrounding light. Thus, while working or studying at your desk, you wouldn’t need to break your streak or focus by trying to adjust the lighting in the room when it gets dark. Instead, the lamp will adjust its brightness according to the ambient light without you knowing. Cool, isn’t it?
The products mentioned above are the top-of-the-line picks in their categories. Besides them, there are hordes of other gadgets that might be helpful to you in some way or another. Examples include smart water bottles, vacuum cleaners, smart pens, fidgeters, and more. Additionally, there are tools and accessories for the gym, office, camera, kitchen, home, etc. Plus, you can utilize particular gadgets while driving, camping, trekking, studying, etc. The point is that our lives and routines are intrinsically bound with technological devices in almost every way, the most important being our cell phones and the internet. In addition, the modern-day world is pretty fast-paced. So, to keep up and be at the top of our game, we need gadgets. Warning though, don’t just buy a gadget to jump on the bandwagon. You need to carefully analyze which ones will best suit your needs or requirements and then make your purchase. Because, mind you, some of them come with a pretty hefty price tag. However, once you buy some of these coolest new gadgets (after careful consideration, of course), they are undoubtedly a great bang for your buck, and you’ll soon be unable to live without them, just like your phone!
