Analog and Audio Make a Pretty Pairing

playtime_01

Why shouldn’t your clock be a speaker and vice versa?! That’s the idea behind Playtime – a hybrid analog clock/Bluetooth audio player. With its oversized alarm-clock aesthetic and polished finishes, it’s almost unrecognizable as a speaker and that’s precisely its appeal. Even its needle is a disguised digital music playback bar, indicating the duration of the music. Just like you can see the progress bar in your music app, you can also see it on the clock face!

The Key to Never Getting Locked Out

smart_lock_01

Getting locked out is a thing of the past. Growing up, I can’t tell you how many times I lost the keys to my house. Smart Door alleviates the stress and nuisance of using a key to enter the home. Designed to appeal to the younger generation of homeowners, Smart Lock is beautifully designed to welcome home the creative inside you.

The overall design aesthetic is simple and minimal, ensuring it does not evade the look of the front door – not limiting the Smart Lock to a specific environment. The material combinations are complementary – the exterior showing an anodized aluminum in either a rose gold or space grey finish while the interior is a ribbed, powder coated ABS, soft to the touch for a premium feel and experience.

The Smart Lock is simple in design and simple in usage. To begin usage, raise the top of the handle up to uncover the pin pad and fingerprint scanner. Once the lock is disabled, the door can be opened via the lower handle. This is done on a push or pull system depending on the orientation of the door itself. To prevent and full lockouts due to an electrical fault, there is an emergency keyhole in the base of the handle, discoverable by sliding down a cover.

Hot Flashes Are No Match For Cool Tech

Grace is the latest in wearable tech that explores how the trend might combat undated menopausal hot flashes. During a hot flash, the thermoregulatory system is falsely triggered and acts to lose heat. This causes sweating, a rise in heart rate, shortness of breath and a reddening of skin. Besides being a deeply uncomfortable experience, it is also embarrassing and inconvenient, striking at any time – day or night.

The underside of the face is equipped with sensors capable of detecting the onset of a hot flash up to one minute before it strikes. If one is detected, a cooling apparatus on the other end of the device is immediately activated to help regulate the user’s thermo-receptors giving them a total sense of cooling in order to counter the hot flash. Each can be customized to the user’s aesthetic liking, such as the elegant voronoi pattern featured here.

A Camera that’s Out of this World

The 1-Ring Moon Levitating Smart Camera is like something out of this world – something like a moon perhaps? This smart camera defies the law of gravity by suspending in mid-air above its base. The Moon floats above the base in a graceful manner, with the ability to capture a rounded 360 degrees of imagery.

The Moon is integrated with an accompanying app – yet is jam-packed with nifty technology and clever features. The Moon can instantly detect any movement in the room and rotate itself to catch the action! Not only this – the accompanying app also alerts you to the action, allowing the user to watch the action live through their smartphone. The Moon comes with a built-in microphone to add a pair of ears to those eyes, helping you when your baby cries or your dog barks. Due to the levitating nature of the Moon, the device can be removed from the base and place in any environment around the house with the use of a cradle – giving the user the ability to adapt the Moon for any room in the house.

What makes the Moon a cut above the rest, is its voice recognition. This helps the Moon recognize who comes home and when they come home. The Moon Levitating Smart Camera is indeed smart – using an integrated IR blaster and Bluetooth, you can also use the Moon to control your other smart devices throughout the house all from inside the app, making it one truly smart device.
