The Nuwa has a built-in motion sensor and a triple camera array that captures what you’re writing, whether it’s a post-it note or a full-length essay, and saves a digital version of it, sharing it with you through the Nuwa app. All your notes are end-to-end encrypted too, which is more than what you can say for most note-taking apps.
The I-Perskin is equipped with LEDs, sensors, and a microcontroller, and makes training more effective by giving you actual targets to punch. The sensors measure your speed, force, and reactivity as you lay blows, and the companion app gives you a detailed breakdown of your training rep, telling you exactly where you need to improve.
Root is an exciting and versatile material where the most honest results are achieved by working with the natural flows of the fiber. It can be grown into large hanging structures or set and molded to form vessels and responds especially well to natural dying processes.
The Nix Hydration Biosensor uses science and technology to actually give you a better picture of your body’s hydration state. This simple device sticks to your skin and tracks your fluid and electrolyte loss through the sweat you produce during activities.
OHealth H1 is actually packed with health features equivalent to six diagnostic tools. Some, like heart rate monitoring, blood oxygen measurement, sleep monitoring, and body temperature detection, might sound commonplace, considering how some smartwatches already have these functions. OPPO’s device, however, offers better accuracy and performance since it isn’t space-constrained like wearables. In addition, the OHealth H1 is also able to perform functions not available on smartwatches, like proper ECG reading and, more interestingly, cardiopulmonary auscultation.
Treecard is made from wood, at least except for the chip that is now standard in such cards. This isn’t just a decorative card but a fully functional one that can be used anywhere that accepts MasterCard. It also supports digital wallets like Apple Pay, Google Pay, and even Samsung Pay.
An aroma diffuser with a fan. Pressing and holding the edge of the base for a second turns on the fan, creating a soft breeze that flows from the gap between the base and the porcelain filter. Another press will switch it to an intermittent mode, where it will turn itself on and off again every three minutes. The next press will turn off the diffuser, and a helpful LED indicator removes the stress of trying to guess whether it’s on or off.
The Jodana’s slim and compact design make it a boon for smaller households. It runs entirely on electricity, eliminating the need for a gas connection or a place to store a large bulky gas cylinder, and you can easily travel with the cooktop or move it around from room to room, facilitating the nomadic lifestyle.

Affixing the lock is as easy as just snapping it in place and watching the band automatically wrap around your bicycle. The lock’s smart hub helps you secure and remove the Slapstick without needing a key, making the entire process simple, fast, and intuitive!
This dehumidifier keeps unwanted humidity and smelling clothes at bay. The modern appliance circulates air inside the closet keeping everything in balance so that there are no unwanted developments.

The Soft Plastic Compactor is a machine that is meant for houses or small buildings that turn these plastic bags and other soft plastics into bricks. These bricks can then be stored and eventually brought to recycling centers where they will be broken apart and then sorted and eventually be recycled.
The Geta name bears the source of its inspiration, that of traditional Japanese sandals that elevate their wearers with “teeth” that protrude from the bottom. In the case of this smartphone case, those teeth also hold the phone up like an angled stand. They also give places for people to insert their fingers when holding the phone.
The Wayv Bowl is a shape-adaptable dish that folds flat to save space while storing and loading in the dishwasher. The flat design also makes washing easier. The dish is secured in the bowl formation with magnets, which also allow the dishes to stack magnetically when folded flat. The dish in its flat formation can also be used as a plate, making it a 2-in-1 product.
What makes Roll different from bowl food containers is that it wholeheartedly embraces the culture of using the lid or dish cap as a plate. That’s why the cap itself was made to look presentable, using soft and clean tones like ivory, sky blue, and terracotta. The idea is that you set the freshly cooked food on the lid itself and then later just cover it with the glass bowl when it’s time to put it away. The next time you want to eat it, you don’t have to rearrange the food again to make it presentable. Simply take off the cover and dig in!
It is made from lightweight polyester and has a breathable mesh on both sides so your dog will not feel suffocated as it can still breathe and feel the breeze if your windows are down. That way, they can also still see the outside world but they’re kept in place if they become too excitable with all the passing vehicles and the kids waving from other cars. There are zipper doors on either side for easy access and the crate also has two storage pockets for things like food and water and hook-and-loop fasteners to hold their toys and treats.
Burrow for one ousts the regular bag appearance and those sharp-edge cage aesthetics for a pleasing design with safe corners. The functional design has a convenient push-button door and comes padded with a removable mattress for the pet to cozy up in. The walls are safe and well-ventilated. Ventilation is enhanced by a mesh door that would let the little pal peek outside and breathe fresh.
It contains dust harvested from a Martian meteorite discovered last year in Northwest Africa. Those who opt to claim this one-of-a-kind variant of the NASA x Interstellar RED3.721 watch will be assured of its authenticity with a certificate, not to mention NASA’s authority in this collaboration.
The Biometric Card has a unique combination of a fingerprint sensor, Security Element (SE), and Secure Processor (SP) on a single chip. This is further backed by Samsung’s proprietary fingerprint authentication algorithm and anti-spoofing technology built right into the card, making it more secure than most others on the market.
