There is no point trying to fight it; the technological world is well and truly here. A such, it is time you embraced tech and opened your eyes to all the weird and wonderful ways technology may improve your day to day life. It is as the saying goes, “if you can’t beat them, join them,” and that is exactly what you should be doing now. Chances are you probably rely on tech more than you realise. You probably don’t wash you dishes in the sink, you use a dishwasher. You probably don’t have puppet shows in your house; you have a television. You probably got sick and tired of those noisy fan blades, and so you got a Dyson. See what we’re talking about. Luckily, the tech world is infinite and so there is something to make everything easier, as you are about to find out.
Yes, the robot has arrived. It may not have eyes and arms and legs and mega-brains, but they are here and this is just the start of it: the cleaner. What they do is clean, but they do it without you needing to waste your time doing the cleaning because they are unmanned bits of kit that use sensors to work their way around your space (let’s say your kitchen) and clean everything off the floor. But you don’t have to be limited to the floor anymore. There are no robotic window cleaners too. These are incredible, especially the Winbot. All you do is put it on the window, hit that go button and let it do its thing, which is cleaning. This may sound lazy, but it is in fact a safer and more efficient way of cleaning your windows, especially when you consider getting the ladder out to clean the third floor windows, or if you live in an apartment block.
Voice Control Speakers
The Amazon Echo; you have probably seen it over recent months as the backdrop to the Amazon home page. They have been pushing this one hard, but for good reason too. It makes life simpler on so many fronts, and that is because of how well designed it is. Ask it something and it will answer, which may seem like old technology but it’s been revamped in this case. How? Well, it can link up with other bluetooth devices, such as other speakers giving you full voice control while you’re doing the dishes, lets say. Your hands are all wet and soapy, and yet you can still ask what the weather will be like tomorrow or to play your favourite song to get you through the chore you’re stuck with. You could even tell it to play movies if it’s connected with your Amazon-fire. Now that’s pretty cool; lazy, but cool.
No, we’re not talking about those wearable trackers that measure your fitness and food habits and diet and weight loss and all those physical things we concern ourselves with. We are talking about the wearable trackers that measure our emotional well being; your stress levels for example. How these work is pretty simple and yet pretty complex too. They measure certain aspects of your life and report back when it detects stress, allowing you to combat it before it manifests. It will also allow you recognise exactly what the cause of this stress was so that you can avoid in the future or, if unavoidable, learn how to better deal with it. Feel is probably the biggest of these trackers at the moment, but more are hitting the market.
Cable is expensive, and yet cable is becoming more and more irrelevant simply because catch-up is now where it is at. Streaming service have dominated. Netflix now rules Hollywood. So why fork out hundreds of dollars every year to fund something that is in decline and less and less useful, just use the internet. Of course, you are probably thinking that you need some form of television box to access on-demand services, including streaming sites, but that is not the case. You could just use a computer console or, better yet, your laptop. All you need is a wire and you can turn your widescreen TV into a huge monitor. Just go online, check out www.techbaby.com, order your cable and start enjoying a less expensive and more improved life of great shows and better movies. It’s a total win.
It’s a pretty terrifying world out there and, whether we like to agree or not, even our homes don’t feel as safe as they once did. So why not get yourself some security. There are so many great products out there that help with this side of things; products that link up to your phone and let you know when movement is detected in your house. We’re talking Nest Cam’s. This isn’t just great for letting you know if there has been an intruder (even saving the footage to help the police in case of a break-in) it is also great for checking on your kids and making sure they are okay, and that they made it back from school. They also do a pretty amazing outdoor version that could be worth checking out.
Phones are smarter and cleverer and more incredible than ever, but what they are seriously lacking is battery life. There was a time, at the turn of the millennium, where our Nokia’s would last several months without a recharge, and now phone’s barely last a working day. As such, getting yourself a pocket-sized and portable charger will make life a little easier. It will mean you can use your phone as your SatNav, or talk to those family that live far away for longer. The benefits are amazing, and the kit is inexpensive. Always go for a reputable make though, someone cheap but good, a company like Anker. They are a staple go to for must tech, the kind that offer really decent stuff that will last you a long time to come (and they look slick too).
