Skully Technologies launched an ill-fated Indiegogo campaign in 2016, raising nearly $2.5 million in preorders for a motorcycle helmet with AR features, and then folding. Backers of that campaign will soon receive the Fenix AR — a helmet with a rear-view camera that displays a 180-degree view on a transparent display. It supports turn-by-turn navigation and (when connected to a phone via Bluetooth) voice commands, making phone calls and playing music.

On the education side, Blipblox was one of the more interesting items on the floor. A synth designed for three to eight-year-old kids, the Blipblox has arrow paths on top connecting all the buttons to show the synth’s signal chain. The idea is to get children interested in synthesis basics early on. But, there’s no iconography on the Blipblox itself to hint at what the buttons do, so it’s hard to say how much kids will really learn as opposed to just mashing buttons. The company told me that if kids want to learn more, they can read the manual that comes it, but that seems to defeat the product’s purpose.
The UV Sense is a tiny wearable that sticks to a fingernail or on your sunglasses. The tiny sticker then tracks the amount of UV rays you’re exposed to, and after it syncs with your iOS or Android device, the app will chart your UV exposure and help you make decisions on when to go inside or put on sunscreen. And since it doesn’t have a battery, you don’t need to worry about charging it before heading outside. UV Sense will ship this year.
When I first saw the Buzzard I had rather hoped the drink-can container would house a rechargeable battery, so you could take the Buzzard out of the car but sadly not. Still, it does make for a handy way to keep everything neat and tidy when not in use – better to have it sat in your car’s cup holder than rattling around the cabin or glove box. For £15 per month you can have a Buzzard gratis with 3GB of data or alternatively it is available on PAYG for £59 plus a £10 top up that gets you 2GB of data to use in 30 days.
The Spectre x360 lives a double life as a tablet and high-performance laptop. And this premium two-in-one comes equipped with some nasty specs including quad-core eighth-gen Intel Core i-series processors and your choice of Radeon RX Vega M or Nvidia GeForce MX 150 discrete graphics.
Kohler’s signature line of high-tech showers now has an app. Kohler Konnect lets you set your shower to a specific water temperature and flow rate as well as control music and lighting with voice commands.
What that means is that sometimes (and right now is one of those times) the list doesn’t change for a long time. So quite a few of the items you’ll see below have been there for months, and have even endured major releases (we’re looking at you iPhone X) in their field.

This prototype phone shown by Chinese phonemaker Vivo has no official name, price or sale date. But its virtual home button, which appears only when you need it and then gets out of the way, may be a harbinger of things to come. It’s a killer feature that was rumored for both the iPhone X and Samsung Galaxy S8 — neither of which had it. We’re clinging to the hope that it finds its way onto the forthcoming Samsung Galaxy S9.
Table Chargers are small tables that can come in tray-style holders. They have a small slot for you to insert into your iPhone and it’ll charge your mobile while acting as a secure stand. This is a brilliant device for watching films or catching up on programs, because you can lie down or sit as comfortably as you like without having to hold your arm out in front of you to see the screen.
Virtual assistants like Siri have been around for years, but it wasn’t until the first Amazon Echo launched in 2014 that voice-enabled gadgets really started to take off. Three years later, Amazon’s true successor to the original Echo improves on the first version in every meaningful way. The design is shorter and more attractive, the improved speaker includes a woofer and a tweeter, and most importantly, it’s noticeably cheaper at just $99.99. These enhancements should help keep Amazon at the top of the smart speaker market as competition from rivals like Google, Microsoft and others heats up.
