Veterinarians say that automatic waste bins, while convenient, make it difficult for owners to monitor their cat’s toilet – which can be useful for marking potential diseases. The Leo’s Loo Too solves this with a built-in sensor that monitors how often your cat walks, along with her weight, and syncs data with the companion app on your phone. It comes with additional features such as UV sterilization and radar to keep the box from self-cleaning while your cat is nearby.
This device gives a new meaning “bird watching“Not only does this cute little one feed the birds at home, but his battery-powered camera also offers live streaming via a connected app. If that’s not fun enough, he’ll take photos of the birds listed, identify the species and present a ton of facts about each.” be shipped some time, but you can get your order now.
Need an extra level of security at home? Ring’s new glass breakage sensor can detect burglary attempts through glass windows and doors at distances of up to 25 feet. You will need a An alarm is ringing or Ring Alarm Pro to use it, and you can configure the sensor to activate the siren when it detects broken glass. It is currently available for pre-sale in a single pack for $ 40 or a pack of two for $ 70. (Note: WIRED has reported extensively on Ring Doorbells in connection with security, supervision, i police partnerships.)
The projector is not the type of device you would always keep with you, but Samsung he wants to be. Its Freestyle projector is made for portability – just plug it into your laptop via USB-C or HDMI ports (or switch via Android / iOS) and point it at any surface. With a resolution of 1080p, a 360-degree speaker and a screen that ranges between 30 and 100 inches, this thing is small but powerful. It is also available on Amazon.
TCL says the demand for larger screens is high. That’s why it’s releasing a massive 98-inch model of its existing Class XL TV for a cool $ 8,000 – yes, you read that right. This version runs Google TV and has a QLED panel. TCL has also announced that its 2022 TV models will come with an option for Android TV or Roku OS. Class XL is currently out of stock, but check back in case that changes.
If you want to upgrade your home theater projector, check out the PX1-Pro from Hisense. Its image diameter ranges from 90 to 120 inches, 4K resolution and a refresh rate of 60 Hz for gaming. It also runs Android TV, so you’ll have access to Google Assistant and various streaming apps.
They are expensive, but NetGear Orbi Pro WiFi 6E Mesh system it is ideal for those with very large houses. It has support for the latest Wi-Fi 6E standard and combined speeds of 10.8 Gbps for up to 9,000 square feet.
Dame’s Com Magic Wand is a vibrator that has the company’s most powerful engine to date and has five different intensity settings and patterns to choose from. Its design allows for a flexible neck and curved handle, making it easier to find the right angle and grip. It is made of medical silicone and comes in two colors: periwinkle and quartz.
Smart watches, headphones and other technology
It’s been two years since Skagen released a new version of his Falster smartwatch. The new model has a 42 mm case and offers several different colors and styles to choose from (including the combination of silver and espresso leather shown above). Powered by Google’s Wear OS operating system with Qualcomm’s latest Wear 4100+ processor to give you more efficient battery life, optimized performance and improved health monitoring. Its interiors are identical to the Fossil Gen 6 we tested last year, which you can read more about in our The best guide for smart watches. We are expected to get a new one Wear OS 3 update later this year.
Garmin has expanded its Venu smartwatch line with Venu 2 Plus. You can now use it to receive calls on both iOS and Android, as well as to chat with your favorite voice assistant (Siri, Google Assistant or Bixby) via the built-in microphone. The 43 mm case comes in gray, black and gold powder (all stainless steel paired with a matching silicone watch strap).
Those who don’t want to spend close to $ 500 on Garmin can opt for the much more affordable Vivom Sport Hybrid instead. Unlike the Venu 2 Plus, this one is reminiscent of a traditional analog clock. But it can still track your basic fitness workouts – by measuring your blood oxygen.
Not a fan of unusual color headphones? Gog JLab Go Air tones, which come in a wide range of skin tones and are designed to blend in with your ears. For just $ 20, they’re not top-notch buds, but they offer IPX4 sweat resistance and eight hours of battery life (according to JBL).
Smart Pepper Spray may sound weird, but it could be a feature you didn’t know you wanted. When it connects to the app, it will send an alert to your emergency contacts with your exact location whenever you spray it. Even in cases where you don’t want to use the canister right away, you can still use the app to send your location to family or friends so they can track you until you indicate you’re safe.
Formerly known as the AeroPex line, Shockz’s OpenRun Pro headphones feature the company’s bone conduction technology that vibrates the bones in your head via sound waves – sending sound directly to your inner ear. That way you can still hear the ambient noise around you while listening to music. Other features include IP55 water resistance, up to an hour and a half of battery life after five minutes of charging and a total of 10 hours of battery life.
If you’re like me, you tend to lose your wallet often. Chipolo’s Card Spot is here to help. It has the shape of a credit card and you can easily insert it into your wallet to keep track of it. It supports Apple’s Find My network, so if you’re an Apple user and lose your wallet, you can track it using Find My on your Apple device. Android owners will have to look elsewhere.
If most of your devices have USB-C ports, the Plugable USB4 Hub will be a useful addition to your home workstation. With three USB4 / Thunderbolt 4 ports and a 10-gigabit USB-A port, you can use it to charge your devices and connect various screens and other accessories.
Equipped with a new autonomous flight system with AI called KeyFrame, Skydio 2+ is designed to help you capture smoother videos while managing complex flight patterns. You can choose from a variety of configurations, including the Starter Kit, Sports Kit, Pro Kit and Cinema Kit, which add accessories such as MicroSD cards, a solid case and a joystick controller.
Moonbike is not yours typically ebike — the front wheel has been replaced by a single ski, while the electric snow tread takes the place of the rear wheel. That way you can ride it freely in the snow. With almost 200 pounds, Moonbike can go up to 26 miles per hour, but you will only get about an hour of battery life. Those who can afford it can book their Moonbike now, and it will ship later this month.
In the electric truck market? You might want to wait for Chevy’s 2024 Silverado EV. It offers a range of 400 miles on a full charge (which is more than Ford F-150 Lightning EVstandard distance of 230 miles) and comes with GM’s second-tier autonomous driving mode, known as the Super Cruise. Currently available for pre-sale, it offers a choice between two trim levels: the RST First Edition for $ 105,000 and the WT for the less intensive $ 39,900. You can book it now, but it will not be delivered until the fall of 2023 or the summer of 2024.
