Every now and then, we come across things that we see what are so impressive, and so innovative, that we know things will never be the same again, once word about said thing spreads. In this video, we discuss six gadgets that we feel will do just that. These industry-changing gadgets are well on their way to changing the industries they are in. Quite a few of the gadgets on this list are still seeking startup funding on Kickstarter.
Oura’s coveted health-tracking smart ring may have some stiff competition with a new, lower-budget wearable. Say hello to RingConn – the smart health tracking ring so comfortable you’ll forget it’s there. With an ultralight titanium design that fits snugly to any finger, RingConn delivers accurate data on sleep tracking, blood oxygen levels, and heart rate for a crystal clear picture of your overall health.
Most health trackers use PPG sensors to track your vitals. But because RingConn sits on your finger instead of your wrist, you get a signal that’s closer to the truth.
That’s because the skin on your fingers is thinner and has more blood vessels than your wrist, with fewer hairs and less interruption from your muscles. RingConn also fits more snugly than a smartwatch, giving you closer contact and less chance of mixed signals when you’re moving. All that gives RingConn a clearer read on your vitals, and a more accurate look at your health.
RingConn looks to provide a fresh, affordable option to the now-limited smart ring space. While claiming to do pretty much everything the Oura does the RingConn comes in at half the price of the cheapest option of the Oura Ring Gen 3. RingConn also takes things a step further, by not requiring a monthly subscription for the RingConn app.
Philips 3-in-1 Purifier
Philips 3-in-1 Air Purifier keeps homes healthy and comfy. It heats you in winter and cools you in summer, continually cleaning the air – removing 99.95% of particles as small as the smallest known virus with its HEPA filtration system.
The purification function is suitable for a room size of up to 452 square feet. The Optimum 360° airflow intake design and high ultra-fine particle filtering efficiency allow this device to effectively clean the air of a 215-square-foot room in 17.5 minutes.
The 3-layer filtration system filters 99.95% of particles smaller than the smallest known virus. Having said that, this device is capable of removing bacteria, pollen, dust, pet dander, mold spores, odors, gases, and other pollutants from your home.
As this form factor increases, it isn’t outrageous to believe that people will start to prefer purchasing this one, single device over the three they have traditionally had to purchase.
Every year, 13 billion blastic deodorants end up in landfills. To give deodorant users a new, green alternative, LifeLong deodorant hails to be the game-changing, planet protecting, style-enhancing deodorant.
When you purchase LifeLong deodorant, you’ll receive a stylish, reusable applicator that is made from anodized aluminum. The applicator comes in three colors, stockholm (black), Copenhagen (steel), and Oslo (rose gold). The applicator is equipped with a magnetic cap to keep the deodorant fresh, and a crystal ball for application. The crystal ball is removable and can be washed and cleaned between uses. For those looking to add a unique spin to their applicator, the crystal balls come in a variety of different colors.
The company currently offers three different scents, Woodland Air, Citrus Tonic, and a no-scent option, and plans to release more scents this year. To use this product, just add the powder inside the applicator, add 50ml of water, seal, and shake for 20 seconds.
BP Doctor Pro
Any doctor will tell you, a one-time blood pressure reading means nothing in a medical sense. To effectively diagnose a patient’s blood pressure results, at least 30 days’ worth of data is needed. Patients will tell you that taking blood pressure readings can be tedious and time-consuming. With the BP Doctor Pro, you can easily keep a daily routine to track your blood pressure.
The BP Doctore is capable of tracking and managing your health easier than ever before. With this device, you can keep up with your heart rate variability, blood oxygen saturation, heart rate, sleep, and fitness. With the BP Doctor App, family members can share their data remotely, letting each family member check on the other’s condition at any time.
By adding this functionality to a smartwatch, we may begin to see a decrease in the number of large BP monitoring machines.
In the market for a smart notebook? Have you heard of the Rocketbook Core? It’s a digital spiral notebook that’s one of the hottest new productivity tools out there. This product seeks to revolutionize the notebook industry by giving its users a green, reusable alternative. Imagine having all of your notebooks in one.
The Rocketbook Core notebook provides a classic pen and paper experience, yet is built for the digital age. Although it feels like a traditional spiral notebook, the Core is an endlessly reusable digital spiral notebook, connected to all of your favorite cloud services.
When you write using any pen from the Pilot Frixion line, your writing sticks to Core pages like regular paper. The Core is erasable, reusable, and eco-friendly, allowing users to wipe its pages and reuse them. It can also connect to cloud services for storage and organization.
Despite all the advancements in writing utensils, pens, mechanical pencils, styli, and markers, the humble pencil remains the tool of choice for writers, draftsmen, designers, and artists. Nothing is simpler than picking up a number 2 pencil and immediately putting your thoughts down on paper. That is until your tip breaks or becomes too dull to use. Wouldn’t it be great if there were a pencil that rarely had to be sharpened at all, and would not break? Yanko Design’s metal pencil achieves just that.
The octagonal shaft is made of aluminum and houses a special alloy core. That special alloy core contains graphite, the very same graphite used in all pencils, and the friction caused by writing or drawing leaves particles of this graphite and alloy behind. But because it uses metal for the core rather than the usual clay or charcoal, it wears down so slowly that you might think your all-metal pencil will actually outlive you. That means you can write on and on, for about 10 miles worth of scribbles, before you even have to worry about things getting a little too dull. This seemingly immortal pencil’s marks can be erased just like any regular pencil. But because it uses friction to make the particles adhere to the material, it doesn’t smudge or smear the way normal graphite does.
Imagine how this industry will look years from now, when people prefer their single, metal pencil, over a pack of number 2 pencils. Think of the trees that will be saved.
