High-tech wearables are nothing new for the business world, but in 2014, Intel introduced an interesting new set of earbuds that can help you stay both mentally and physically healthy throughout your day, including while at work. These body-monitoring earbuds sync to both iOS and Android phones, and track everything from calorie and distance traveled, to your heartbeat in real time. When that inevitable slump occurs just after lunch, the earbuds will automatically play you a song especially chosen to pump you up, while a calming song will be offered after that frustrating meeting with your boss.
A discussion arose at the Plymouth meeting of the Devonshire Association in 1916 when it was suggested that this word should be recorded in the list of local verbal provincialisms. Several members dissented from its inclusion on the ground that it is in common use throughout the country; and a naval officer who was present said that it has for years been a popular expression in the service for a tool or implement, the exact name of which is unknown or has for the moment been forgotten. I have also frequently heard it applied by motor-cycle friends to the collection of fitments to be seen on motor cycles. ‘His handle-bars are smothered in gadgets’ refers to such things as speedometers, mirrors, levers, badges, mascots, &c., attached to the steering handles. The ‘jigger’ or short-rest used in billiards is also often called a ‘gadget’; and the name has been applied by local platelayers to the ‘gauge’ used to test the accuracy of their work. In fact, to borrow from present-day Army slang, ‘gadget’ is applied to ‘any old thing.'
The days of drawing terrible circles and having to calculate circumferences are over! With this flexible rule, you can draw out circles and other shapes with ease. Of course, it still functions as a regular ruler as well, but who wants to draw straight lines when you can perfect your circle drawing skills? Toys like this would be one of the best gifts for engineering offices.
Whether you travel once a month or once a year, a portable charger is an essential part of accessory for your phone — or really any mobile USB-charged device. This is a competitive space, but Anker makes some of the best chargers and external batteries on the market. The Anker Astro E1 offers the best balance of power, price and size. At 5200mAh, it packs enough juice to fully charge an iPhone 6 — twice. And at such a cheap price, there’s not a very good reason to skip on such a useful gadget.

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.
It’s not a real product yet, but Fove can plant the flag as the first company to have a usable VR headset with eye-tracking built in. Given how imprecise VR interfaces can be and how much data eye tracking can gather to inform how scenes render, the technology is a hot area for development.
This model is only two-thirds the size of a traditional keyboard, measuring 11.3 × 5.0 × .5 inches, and it emphasizes comfort with its low-profile and matte finish keys that are clicky, but not too clicky. The biggest selling point here, outside of its smart design, is its insane six-month battery life, so you’ll likely never be without a charge. Another great thing about this keyboard is versatility: its Bluetooth connection means you also pair it with other devices in your life, including other phones and computers that support Bluetooth keyboards.
The ports are all silicon-padded, so nothing gets scratched. And the dock is equipped to withstand power surges and over-charging. Best of all, it has built-in dividers to help you keep everything neat and organized, so you can immediately lay your hands on the device you need. The one downside is that you have to purchase charging cables separately.
We love to hang art on our walls, but every now and again we feel the need to move things around. We don’t want to redo the entire house, but a change of scenery is never a bad idea. It would be much easier if what was on your walls could change itself, or be changed whenever you’re tired of the same ole images cropping up.

But if we had to pick the best headphones overall then we’d go for the Sennheiser Momentum Wireless. They’re wireless, which makes them more convenient for portable use, and they’re noise-cancelling for those who want to use them on a noisy commute.
One of the very best things about a conceptual device is the fact that you can more or less throw in every single bit of technological advancement into the picture, knowing that it does not even have to wait for existing technology and laws of physics to be able to allow it to do so. Vivo has thought of the APEX FullView concept smartphone, which will boast of the world’s very first half-screen in-display fingerprint scanning technology that is merged with other kinds of engineering breakthroughs in its camera, speaker and sensors.
The Bluetooth headphone that could finally get audiophiles to cut the cord. Beyerdynamic’s Amiron wireless headphone is articulate, with excellent clarity and bass definition, and superior to the company’s on-ear Aventho Wireless — a great Bluetooth headphone in its own right.

However, there are three key advantages Lenovo’s Smart Display has over the Echo Show: It can play YouTube videos (unlike Amazon’s device), it includes a larger screen, and it has a more polished design that more easily blends into the home.

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.
