The following contribution is from another author.

We live in an age where we essentially have robots helping make our day to day lives easier – and what a wonderful time it is! From a virtual assistant to no longer having to use our legs if we don’t feel like it, we truly live in an era that we predicted not too long ago. Remember The Jetsons? Yeah, that’s us now apart from the flying cars (which, by the way, aren’t too far away either). If you love tech and gadgets as much as we do, we know you’ll just want to take a look at this pick of the best-of-the-best smart home gadgets so you can get your hands on them too!

Easier life

Long gone are the days where we have to fumble around for a pen and paper to jot something down on or make a shopping list. Not too far in the past we had the luxury of taking advantage of a handheld tablet or ‘notes’ application on our phones to make a note of things we need to remember. Now, we don’t even have to reach for our devices! We’re able to simply speak to our devices and make lists, reminders, to do’s, and so much more!

Have you ever been sat at home and felt so lazy that you can’t even be bothered to get up and turn the thermostat up, or wish you had a personal robotic assistant? Yeah, we probably all have at some point or another! Luckily, there’s now a plethora of gadgets that you can buy that will save you from having to get off the couch. In fact, all you have to do is speak to yet another one of your smart pieces of tech to change the heating for you! One recommendation is the Nest thermostat, which is compatible with the very well known Amazon and Google systems. Perfect for those occasions where you want to show off to your friends and family too!

Fun for the kids

It’s not just adults that should be able to take advantage of fun and exciting gadgets either. Teenagers in this day and age are loaded with gadgets left, right, and center. It’s not unusual for teens these days to have mobile phones from an earlier age, gadgets to listen to their favorite music on, and even laptops to study on. However, there’s a new gadget on the scene that pretty much every teen and young adult wants to get their hands on – the hoverboard, a sort of hands-free transport that doesn’t require any effort from the user at all! You can find hoverboards for sale from Gotrax in many different styles and colors. 

If you’re looking for something that’s more appropriate for the slightly younger child, then you might be interested in buying them the Ozobot that helps accelerate learning in your children, allowing them to create and play games, learn about the coding, and generally take a step forward in their education (which could give them an edge on their school work too).


We all have day-to-day tasks that need to be done, but sometimes need to be skipped (or possibly even forgotten about!). Luckily you’re not alone in this, and the incredible minds of our planet have come up with some super cool, super useful gadgets just for your convenience:

  • One robotic vacuum, otherwise known as a Roomba, makes the chore of vacuuming practically non existent! Vacuuming is a chore that most of us try and do daily, and it takes up a considerable amount of time (especially if you’ve got children). Well, now you can eliminate the need to vacuum everyday by using a Roomba to work it’s way around your home while you get on with the other chores you need to get done!
  • Watering your garden is an essential, yet time consuming task, and thankfully someone recognized this and created an attachment for your garden hose, which waters your garden in intervals throughout the day. To find the right garden hose, check out this guide from the unclutterer that will help you to water your garden easily. A gorgeous and healthy garden without the hassle? Go on then!
  • Ever heard the doorbell go, but not wanted to get up and see who it is, especially if there’s a chance that it could be a cold caller? We feel you! You can now buy smart doorbells with integrated cameras and microphones to save you having to lift a finger. Again, these devices come with handy apps linked to our phones so that you can even buzz people into your home without even thinking about it!


Who would have thought that something we can create could benefit our health so greatly? Did you know that you can now buy a set of scales which links back to an app on your smartphone. It can keep track of your weight, water retention, fat percentage, and even tell you the weather! Sure, a regular set of scales can tell you your weight, but if you want to truly track the direction your health is going, we recommend the Nokia Body Cardio scales to help you gain the most out of your fitness regime.

Ever wondered if you’re getting enough exercise? Now you can buy a wrist watch that tracks every move you make so that you can determine whether you need to up your exercise regime. Not only that, but you’ll be able to track your heart rate at the same time.

As you can see, there are a plethora of different gadgets and technology that can help make everyday life easier for everyone! Plus, there’s plenty that are built just for fun too, and we shouldn’t we take advantage of the fun side of technology too?
