Why use your smartphone when you can have this elegant and natural looking solution instead? Put that phone away and bring your home a step closer to nature with the Mui Lab Smart Home Panel.
Toshiba 360 Immersive Helmet
Want to look like a complete goon? Toshiba’s immersive gaming and entertainment helmet allows you to jump right into the game with a 360 degree view of your game. Wearing it looks like someone just smashed a TV through your head, but the experience that you’ll have with it is good enough to put that factor aside.
Frankly, this is like an oversized and over-ambitious VR headset – we’re not actually sure why it’s so big, but it’s hilarious all the same and we love it.
Fridgeezoo Talking Fridge Animals
What could you possibly want in your fridge more than a bunch of talking milk cartons?! Surely, nothing. Frideezoo comes in various shapes and sizes, with a whole cast of milk carton animals that will greet you with a welcome in Japanese.
The animals aren’t just there to say hello and look cute, however – they’ll also remind you to shut the fridge door in order to conserve energy. If you’re looking to surprise someone in your house, then this is the best way to do it.
Yukai BOCCO Emo Responsive Robot
Your kids need an emo robot around the house. If you have young children who are too young to have a smartphone – and you probably don’t want them to have a smartphone at such a young age – then this is the perfect solution to not having to walk upstairs to tell them things.
The BOCCO Emo Responsive Robot will chill with your kids and then you can send it messages via your smartphone. It’ll read them out to your kids and they can them press the robot’s nose to send replies. What’s more, this cool little robot can also work with your home’s smart devices.
For example, if you leave a door open with a smart lock, the robot will let you know. This is a handy way to make sure your kids are safe.
Langualess Inupathy Dog Mood Sensor
Is your dog okay? Have you asked it recently? Probably not. The Langauless Inupathy Dog Mood Sensor straps around your dog’s back and reads its heart rate to give you accurate information on your dog’s current mood. It can read emotions like happiness, excitement, stress, surprise, and more.
Disclaimer: Your dog might get a bit annoyed by having to wear this thing… depends on the dog. It isn’t suitable for use on cats, rabbits, or fish.
iSpace HAKUTO-R Moon Rover
Space exploration is the ultimate dream of humanity, no? We look up at the stars and we wonder at the confines of our own existence. Now a Japanese company is trying to be the first to make a private moon exploration vehicle.
The idea of this private moon rover is to bring the moon into the sphere of the Earth’s economy. Here’s to a future of dystopian space mining companies that send psychopathic android’s onto spaceships to kill the crew and study violent alien species. RIP Ripley.
While that last one might not fit into your home, the rest of these entries are affordable smart devices that will be well suited to your home life. Try them out today and see how your standard of living improves. After all, who doesn’t want more robots in their life?
