Can you believe it has already been a whole year of our Facebook Sunday Spotlights? Neither can we! Here’s something to refresh your mind about this past month’s cool gadgets and also highlights from the past!
Everywhere you look, people are trying to save money – whether on sustainable products or looking for ways to lower their bills. For those of us with a garden or backyard, seems like the water bill is always sky high. Rachio is a smart sprinkler controller, easily replacing your traditional one, that gives you the ultimate control of your water usage, right from your smartphone; the creators claim you can save up to 50% on your water bill – which we find incredible! Rachio uses different sensors and online data to create a custom watering schedule, considering rain and weather changes or even the type of soil you have! It’s also compatible with Alexa, IFTTT, Google Assistant and other services to ensure a smooth smart home experience.
You can purchase Rachio starting at $199.99 directly on their website.
Often find yourself stressed, uneasy and not getting quality sleep? You’re not alone. In today’s fast-paced world, everyone seems to be way more restless. Thync is here to change that; a small, smart wearable that you put on your forehead or the back of your neck, sending low level electrical stimulation to activate specific nerve pathways. These small “vibes” communicate with specific areas of your brain to help control stress levels, mood and sleep quality. Thync has two modes – Deep Sleep & Deep Relax – both set to put your mind at ease and help you wind down.
It’s super simple to use too – simply place the module on your forehead or neck, download the app and choose a program – in a 10-minute session Thync will do the rest. A natural and safe way to reduce stress and anxiety – bye bye pills!
You can buy Thync directly on their website.
Ever find it hard to keep your dog entertained and active while you’re not at home? GoBone is a device made for you and your dog! With app control, you can automatically keep your pup active while you’re busy – you can play or make sure they get enough exercise. GoBone adjusts its behavior based on age, weight, breed, and play style to engage your dog better. The battery lasts for 8 hours, which sure is plenty of time to play and train. Sounds like a necessity in today’s busy schedule and a great way to learn new ways to play!
You can get GoBone for $169 directly on the website.
Just in time to wrap this year up and get started on our New Year resolutions, a major resolution should definitely be: less stress, more happiness. HumanCharger is aiming to help with that exactly; it may look like a set of earphones, but this revolutionary device was designed for your well-being. The earphones project bright light directly to the light-sensitive regions of your brain, and can be used to increase energy levels, improve mood, increase mental alertness, reduce the effects of jet lag and keep winter blues at bay. All you need is 12 minutes every two hours when you feel most tired, to give yourself a boost. Bright light therapy has been used since the 1980’s, but it has been mostly administered through the eyes and would take a longer time – making this a much more convenient solution!
You can start your year off right and for $219 get your own HumanCharger here.
