Technology is evolving at a faster rate today than it ever did in human history. However, what makes it a fantastic time for us to be alive is the fact that we are at a junction where we have seen many high tech gadgets become commonplace throughout the globe while innovators are still coming out with products that are based on completely out of the box thinking. So what kind of high tech gadgets can we expect to see in 2013? Well, here is list of the finest 5.
1. Wearable Looxcie LX2 Video Cam
With the Wearable Looxcie LX2 Video Cam for Android and iOS smartphones, you can say goodbye to keeping your smartphone or handy cam propped up through your arm when you need to get important events on video. This handy little device can be worn on the ear and give you a first person perceptive video. The tiny camera can store up to 5 hours worth of footage internally though it can also stream live video feed on the internet through a wireless connection over the smartphone. Users can also use it to capture video in handsfree mode during extreme sport outings, during concerts and even parties when they need both their hands free for carrying drinks and food.
2. Lockitron keyless home lock and entry
Hate having to worry about whether or not you locked your home properly when you left for work? Well, the Lockitron keyless home lock and entry could help you lock your home and double check it through a smartphone application. What this basically means is that you can use your smartphone to lock your home while sitting in the office or unlock it from the driveway when you need to carry grocery bags in both your arms. Operating the Lockitron keyless home lock and entry is as easy as using the keyless lock for your car which makes it perfect for senior citizens who have a hard time working with more elaborate home alarm systems. The app also gives you notifications when your kids get home along with the time of them getting inside.
3. Touchscreen Garmin Forerunner 610 GPS Watch
If you are a regular runner or a jogger, the Touchscreen Garmin Forerunner 610 GPS Watch could easily become your very own Jarvis (like the one Iron Man has) to keep track of the routes you’ve travelled, how fast you were going and the distance that you have jogged. With a chronometer, a GPS tracker, a fitness monitor and a digital assistant rolled into one, the watch is a must have for fitness buffs. Technically, you can also get your kids to wear it and you can thus keep a better eye on them when they are left without adult supervision.
4. Nest Learning Thermostat System
Nest Learning Thermostat is all set to become the single most important home automation system in the future. The gadget basically syncs to your smartphone through an app and allows you to control the cooling and heating of your home from the office or within the comfort of your cozy and warm bed. According to its developers, the Nest is devised to learn consumer behavior patterns like what time of the day the customer switches the heating on or off and what kind of demands it makes from its home heating/cooling system in certain climates. It can then program itself to automate the home thermostat to reflect past customer preference.
5. Papertab: the tablet with a flexible body
OK, so you may have been reading a lot about flexible smartphone displays being developed in China though you may be surprised to learn that Paper Logic has already developed a cool new tablet that comes with a 107 inch screen and can be folded on demand. The super sleek device is also very lightweight and virtually paper thin which of course presents us with a world of possibilities of where this kind of technology may be applied in the future. Since the tablet is powered by Intel Core processor and can be easily rolled up, it could in theory be used to create intelligent tablecloths that could be used to provide entertainment or create an ambiance at the dinner table or maybe even smart blinds and umbrellas that could protect people from excessive sunlight while providing a vast space to display information.
