I am always following the latest news and trends on smart tech, gadgets and everything that will make my life easier.
A fun fact is that this is one of Mark Zuckerberg’s goal for 2016: to create an AI, some kind of smart Butler, to control his home. Have you watched Iron man and his tech butler Jarvis? It will be something like that.
“Every year, I take on a personal challenge to learn new things and grow outside my work at Facebook… My personal challenge for 2016 is to build a simple AI to run my home and help me with my work. You can think of it kind of like Jarvis in Iron Man.
I’m going to start by exploring what technology is already out there. Then I’ll start teaching it to understand my voice to control everything in our home — music, lights, temperature and so on.” source: read all on facebook.
I believe this would be a very cool idea and I would love to see what he can accomplish on his next goal.
Stay Up To Date
In my opinion, buying the latest version of a cellphone, computer, gadgets… is not a foolish thing to do.
Technology is so advanced and runs so quickly that it is hard to keep up with everything. So you need to try to stay up to date by buying smart accessories and getting to know what is out there for you to buy.
I personally feel good to learn about new tech and how it can help on my daily basis. If there’s a new gadget that can help you on your day to day activities, why not try it?
Creating a high tech house, like Mark Zuckerberg is trying to do, may be out of our reach right now but there are definitely small gadgets that you can buy, and maybe you can start with your bathroom. So take a look at my recommendations:
I started using the ISSA toothbrush like a month ago and I couldn’t be happier with it. It will make you feel sorry for your old boring toothbrush.
The ISSA Electric Toothbrush was created by the company Foreo and they state on their website that the ISSA is “More Than Just an Electric Toothbrush”. They are right about that.
The first thing you will notice when using this toothbrush is its unique design. The sleek design and the structure of it is perfect.
It not only has a silicone body for a better grip but the brush is also made of silicone for a better cleaning of your teeth.
It produces 183 high-intensity pulsations per second and you will notice how more effectively it cleans your teeth, if compared to other regular toothbrushes.
Battery: One plus about this toothbrush is the battery life. Before the ISSA I used to have another electric toothbrush that worked with normal batteries. Each set of alkaline battery would last for less than 15 usages. Plus the replacement brush head would last for maybe 3 weeks.
I took my ISSA to my last trip to Miami and I forgot the charger so I thought it would die on me, until I checked on their website that with 1 hour of charge I would get 365 uses. I was totally impressed.
Seriously, if you ever use this electric toothbrush you won’t want to use any other regular toothbrush in your life.
I have talked about the Clarisonic in the past but they now have a new compact design called Alpha Fit made exclusively for men.
I have tried other facial scrubbers but the Clarisonic definitely does a better job than their competitors.
They did a great job with the soft brush and compact design. I think any man will appreciate the compact look of the Alpha fit that can easily fit any toiletry bag.
You can say that you don’t need a gadget like this and that you can wash your face with your fingers, but it doesn’t work like that.
You can only remove enough dirt, sweat and oil from skin using your hands. The Clarisonic in fact cleans 6x better than you would using your fingers.
The Clarisonic Alpha Fit oscillates at a frequency that produces over 300 movements per second and you are also able to change the “intensity” based on your skin sensitivity.
If you look at this razor from far you may think that it looks just like any other razor out there. But if you take a closer look at how perfectly made it is, you may think twice.
This razor is the “ninja” of razors and I will tell you why. The OneBlade was made to give you the most precise shave you will ever get.
It is made of German stainless steel body, Japanese Feather blades made of hardened stainless steel and coated in platinum, and Military-grade PVD coating.
This Razor is all about precision and perfection. “It’s the Best Razor on Earth. Period.”
I am pretty sure you must work out very hard like I do and you want to keep track of your “gains” and losses right?
The Fitbit Aria is one of the top seller smart scales you should have in your bathroom. Luckily the Fitbit company takes synchronizing very seriously, so you will be able to see all your data from your scale right on your cellphone app, together with the info from your Fitbit wristband if you have one.
The Fitbit Aria tracks weight, lean mass, body fat percentage, and body mass index, and wirelessly, sends all the data to your phone app.
This smart scale has room for the storage of up to eight users and recognizes each user when they step on the scale. You have an option to make the data of the user private, and only share what you want.
NEBIA Shower uses a H2MICRO™ technology to atomize water into millions of droplets to create 10 times more surface area than a regular shower. So forget about a shower that is too strong and narrow.
Also the best part of this device is that it saves 70% more water than your regular shower would.
It is easy to install, so don’t worry about having to call a professional plumber or making a hole on your wall. The height-adjustable bracket will make this shower perfect for a child to a basketball player.
Philips Sonicare HX8211/02 Airfloss
If you are still using the same flossing system as your grandpa used to, “you are doing it wrong”.
We finally have seen a lot of brands coming up with their own smart flossing system, like this one from Philips.
We started by seeing the water floss that comes with a water storage, but that can take a big space in your bathroom counter top, specially if you have a small apartment.
The Philips Sonicare is good to use at home and on the go. It removes 5x more plaques ,and the best of all , it is fast and painless. It will take less than a minute to do your flossing routine.
Philips Smart Shaver series 7000
Shaving gadgets are other outdated techs that haven’t got a proper renovation for quite sometime.
I did a review of the Philips Norelco Laser-Guided Beard Trimmer and I thought it was a great idea from them. The Norelco is supposed to help you to get a straight line for your shaving, by using a laser line to guide you through the trimming.
Not yet available, but a shaver to keep your eyes on this year, that’s the Philips Smart Shaver series 7000. It is the world’s first Bluetooth connected shaver which delivers personalized smooth shave for maximum comfort.
It works alongside with the Philips Smart Shaver app to keep track of all your shavings. “The Philips Smart Shaver app, in combination with the Smart Shaver, assesses the skin and shaving routine of each man. It also helps give them personalized guidance on how to get a comfortable shave, even on sensitive skin, prone to after-shave skin irritation.” says John Smith – Business Leader Male Grooming, Personal Care.
All the shaving data from the Philips Smart Shaver is sent to the app via Bluetooth. It learns with the consumer’s information to offer personalized, expert guidance, including pre-emptive tips based on past shaving routines, shaving issues and skin sensitivity.
There are many options to make your home more tech friendly. If I could, I would make everything automated like Mark Zuckerberg is trying to do.
If you stop and listen to any successful entrepreneur he will say that money is not as valuable than time. You can always make more money but time is limited. Smart gadgets are here to help you make your life easier, so we should make usage of them.
