What it does: The Panasonic slow juicer has a separate frozen attachment for sorbets and those all-important cocktails. It squeezes fruit and vegetables at 45rpm rather than dicing and spinning at speed, meaning that more nutrients stay in your juice.

Those who are always working out and would like to keep track of the various metrics through the entire fitness regime would definitely have a heart rate monitor of sorts.

Yes. It does. Our office tests show positive ink results on a variety of failbags’ foreheads, although if the size and shape of the FAILer’s forehead gives you any trouble, might we suggest stamping again, this time even harder?
When it comes to waterproof speakers, there are many different kinds of models that are available in the market. However, Scosche has had a pretty decent track record in the past with its offerings, and recently lifted the veil up from the all-new BoomBottle MM. The BoomBottle MM continues from the ideology of its predecessor, with a portable and cylindrical design being the base design, while offering sought after features and arriving in a refined shape. Not only that, Scosche has thrown in additional functionality and exceptional sound quality, offering an alternative option to active lifestyle consumers where Bluetooth speakers are concerned.
Rather than overwhelm you with a flood of features you might not need, Whirlpool has shown some restraint with its smart fridge. Marinating meat? The screen will tell you how long to cook your particular cut and ask if you want to set a timer. Cleaning the fridge? Whirlpool will suspend cooling to save energy and shut off the door alarm.
Choice paralysis is something that you may or may not have heard of, but you’ll definitely have been affected by. It’s the thing that happens when you’re given so many options that you end up not being able to make a decision at all.
As a professional photographer, I normally don’t like add-on lenses. Adding extra glass in front of current glass usually degrades the quality of a photo. Also, I usually only use my phone for family snapshots or casual situations that do not call for pro gear, but with the iPhone 7 I will admit that the quality of photos has improved.
Let’s face it, iPhones don’t have the greatest speakers in the world. If you find yourself wanting music outdoors or at parties — or any place that’s not your go-to stereo/speaker system — you should probably invest in a Bluetooth speaker, and the Anker AK-99ANSP9901 is perhaps the best option. This two-inch speaker is capable of up to 20 hours of playtime, thanks to the built-in 2100mAh battery. It connects via Bluetooth 2.1 and up, making it compatible with virtually every mobile device on the market, and it includes a standard 3.5mm (AUX) audio port if you want to connect via headphone jack. And the sound is quite impressive for something that costs less than $40.
Prospects: The product is cool, but the real value is in the patents. The startup’s digital cluster, dubbed Noah, won a spot in CES’ coveted Innovation Awards Showcase, which is sure to attract major players’ attention. But while Mindtronic AI execs say they are ready for production, companies will more likely be interested in the intellectual property and algorithms fueling the technology. Expect to see aspects of this tech percolating as the industry gets hip to AI in the cockpit.
The two outer channels have a looser grip for cables that you take in and out frequently. The two inner channels have a tighter grip for cables you rarely remove to stay put. CableDrop Multi uses a semi-permanent (3M) adhesive tape to stay put on flat surfaces.

The display shows the pressure of each tire so that you can easily detect when something is wrong.
Each year, tech companies announce and release hundreds of products designed to make your work life easier and more efficient, and 2014 was no different. From headphones that track your heartbeat and attempt to manipulate your energy level through music, to an ingenious rubber desktop organizer that is sure to save you the headaches that come with lost cords, the 25 office gadgets on this list are those we spent all of last year talking about. Though there were certainly more than 25 exciting new products to find their way into our offices last year, those on this list were chosen and ranked based upon the following criteria:
The e-Palette is Toyota’s new, modular transportation platform that looks inspired by both shipping and toaster. It comes in three sizes ranging from 4 meters (about 13 feet) to approximately 7 meters (around 23 feet) and is designed to be flexible and reconfigurable to accommodate the needs of Toyota’s partners on the project, which include Amazon, Pizza Hut, Uber and others.
What it does: Not only a food processor, this nifty machine weighs, cooks, chops, crushes, emulsifies, whips, mixes, steams, blends, kneads, grinds, simmers, grates and mills. Designed by Vorwerk it’s the ultimate in German engineering with touch controls that monitor weighing scales and set heat needs instantly – but it will also sit comfortably on any counter top without demanding too much space. Serves up perfect stews, sauces, soups and jams.
No more hiding from the rain! These won’t stop no matter how much you sweat! Don’t be fooled by sweat-proof claims, they will break down if they are not coated. The Bluetooth headphones feature the CSR8645 Bluetooth 4.1 with aptX audio decode technology, giving these wireless earbuds unparalleled stereo sound quality. The CVC 6.0 Digital noise reduction technology, intelligently filters ambient noise, enabling clearer sound during calls and while listening to music!
The est-iest TV we’ve ever seen, LG’s new W7 65- and 77-inch TVs are the thinnest, lightest and potentially the best-picture quality TVs to hit the wall. Plus, LG claims the picture quality of these are better than last year’s, which are pretty terrific.
The Moov Now doesn’t have all the bells and whistles you would associate with a fitness tracker. It doesn’t have GPS tracking, it doesn’t even have a screen; but what it does have is a cheap price tag and six-month battery life. Yes, you read that right: six months.
The MiLi Pico Projector 2 turns your phone into — you guessed it — a projector! Complete with a LCOS LED micro video projector, speakers, and a built-in stand, it’s the perfect gadget to turn your phone into an entertainment center. Oh, and if that’s not enough, it also has a built-in 2800mAh battery that charges your phone while it’s hooked into the device. Pretty nifty.
I’m not a huge gadget person but I LOVE the shower speaker I got on Amazon. It’s awesome for so much more than just the shower. I use it to play music in my room and also stick it to the window in my car! Money well spent. —ginababy417
Apple has managed to knock itself off the top spot for best smartwatch with the excellent Apple Watch 3. It will look very familiar to anyone who has the Apple Watch 2, as it’s basically the same frame with different innards, but those innards make all the difference.
When you’re going on a long journey and your passengers are using their phones/tablets, it can be helpful to be able to charge them en-route. However, with a charging port popped into the 12V DC socket (or 24V if you’re in a larger vehicle), if you have more than one passenger it can lead to arguments over whose gadget is more in need of a boost. The Olixar Triple USB Super Fast Car Charger can eliminate those car-journey squabbles. It comes with three USB ports – including two that are strong enough to charge tablets (2.1amps each) – the other is a 1 amp port for Smartphones. It’s worth noting the 1 amp port is on top (with the two 2.1 amp ports sitting below) as it’s not clear on the actual device.
The G-Drive is a fast, portable, and easy-to-use storage solution that is perfect for the busy professional. With a transfer rate of 400MB per second, the G-Drive is faster (read: more convenient) than your typical flash- or thumb-drive. Plus, unlike similar products on the market, the G-Drive is compatible with both Windows and Mac, making it a handy tool for those who work with a number of different hardware types. Th G-Drive comes with all necessary cables, plus a three-year limited warranty.
