The world is moving at an incredible pace, and technology is bigger, better, and more impressive than ever. This is the future, the world that sci-fi writers wrote about and dreamed about, and we need to take advantage of that.
In this guide we’ll look at the very best gadgets and tech for the home that can drastically improve your life.
Flossing is a pain. It’s fiddly, it’s time consuming, and even though it’s an essential part of our daily oral hygiene, it’s something we often skip because it’s such a chore. But there is an easier way: the water flosser.
WaterPik were the ones to revolutionize this industry and their device still leads the way, but there are many more devices out there. All of the big brands (Philips, Panasonic, Oral B) got involved and created their own versions, and there has also been an influx of devices from China that sell for 2 to 3 times less.
These devices send blasts of air, water or mouthwash through gaps in your teeth and dislodge the food stuck there. They are not quite as a effective as a good, thorough clean with dental floss, but they are more effective than the way many people use floss, and they are so easy and convenient that they can also be used more throughout the day.
Fit Devices and Watches
The technology of fitness trackers and watches has advanced a lot in recent years and these devices really are impressive when it comes to tracking your health and wellbeing.
It’s important to stay on top of your health. The world of medicine and healthcare is getting better (although in some states, you may need a good on your side and a few million to pay for healthcare) but the onus is still on the individual to monitor their health and this is where this technology can help.
These devices can monitor your heart rate and your sleep; they can track your exercise; and they can also be used to monitor your weight. It’s like having a personal trainer and a doctor on your wrist.
The Ring Doorbell takes technology that has been available for a few years, combines it, and creates something that is revolutionary. It is a doorbell/intercom/camera that allows you to check who is at the door anywhere in the world, as long as you have your phone on you.
What’s more, you can also use the app to talk to the person. It’s a security device, as you can pretend to burglars that are you home when you are not, but it’s also a convenience device, as you can avoid cold callers and other nonsense callers when you’re at home.
Robot Vacuum Cleaners
A few years ago robot vacuum cleaners were laughably bad. They were slow, ineffective and expensive. They often got stuck, they didn’t have much in the way of a cleaning function and their only purpose was to give your cat or dog a fun way to ride around the living room.
These days it’s a different story. They are much cheaper and they are also very effective. The problem is, many people still think of them as being just as ineffective and expensive as they used to be and they have missed the improvements as a result.
