AmazonDash will make sure you never need to leave your home again

Coolest Gadgets - Wed, 2014-04-09 19:30

It’s awesome how you can buy something and it will show up on your doorstep the same day, or the next. Fewer and fewer people take the long way around of shopping in stores, only to find they don’t have exactly what they’re looking for. We’re getting to a point where Amazon can provide you pretty much anything, at amazingly cheap prices.

Seeing that we all forget things around the house until we absolutely need them, Amazon is launching the Amazon Dash. This will let you keep a virtual shopping list by either saying or scanning the item that you need. This can be used by your whole family, and you can add items as you go. This connects via your home WiFi network, and will put everything you scan in a cart on your Amazon Fresh account. All you need to do after that is go on your computer or mobile device, purchase your items, and schedule a delivery.

You can hang this on the fridge, or in a convenient location in the kitchen. Of course, Amazon Fresh is only available in Southern California, as well as the San Francisco and Seattle areas, so this doesn’t really apply to anyone who doesn’t live around there. This device is free, but the Amazon Fresh service costs $300 a year, and you’re not likely to find bargain-hunting deals. To get in on this action for those who are in that area, you’ll need to get an invitation email.

Garmin’s Vivofit – Get’s you Going, Keeps you Going!

Coolest Gadgets - Wed, 2014-04-09 19:00

Most of you know that my fitness routine is limited to quickly changing TV channels and carrying heavy bags of cakes, ice cream and donuts into the house from the grocery store. I know I have to treat myself better, and there are so many gadgets out there that could help motivate me. I think I may have finally found one of those fitness bands that has a few features for real beginners like me, and, one that could continue to grow with me, as my commitment to daily exercise increases…

Check out Vivofit, the newest entry into the fitness band market, Vivofit actually learns your current activity level, *sigh* and then, assigns an attainable daily goal for you. As you manage to push on and meet those milestones, your Vívofit will set the bar just a little higher for the next day, gradually stepping you up to attain your fitness goals. Vivofit also maintains a free online community where you can view and track your progress.

Sure, Vivofit tells the time, but it also has quite a few additional features to keep you motivated. Use the optional heart rate monitor with your Vívofit in order to record your heart rate and zone data, and to get more accurate calorie burn information. Garmin Connect, the free online community that the company offers, allows you to challenge other Vívofit users, and start your own competitions with friends and family, in order to compete for badges and some all important chest thumping.

Your Vívofit will be your constant companion, and it keeps on “ticking” for more than a year without ever having to change the battery. Setting the sleep mode when you go to bed, then allows your band to track the quality of your sleep. Just log on to see how long you snoozed, and your periods of thrashing about. The Vívofit band is also water-resistant, so YES, you can shower, or jog in the rain, without having to worry. Get yours for around 140 bucks at amazon.com, and me? I’m going to start getting off the couch, you know, right after the last of the cake is gone.

Grush is tackling a new market – the gaming toothbrush

Coolest Gadgets - Wed, 2014-04-09 18:30

Getting kids to do things they have to do like cleaning or washing up is about as much fun as pulling teeth for either side. The best way to get kids to do something is to make it into a game. Assign points, or use a rewards system and they’re suddenly ready to get things done.

It’s looking like someone took “making it into a game” seriously, as the Grush is coming into creation. This is a toothbrush that works alongside an app which will have kids brush away monsters on the screen of a phone or tablet, by brushing their teeth in real life. This is a motion sensing game wand controller that can track things like stroke, intensity, rotation, and gestures. There is a Grush Cloud that will store all of the brushing information, which means parents and dentists alike will have instant access to brushing antics.

The games that it comes with it are varied, in that you can chase away monsters, care for virtual pets, fly planes, and more. This will work with Android or iOS devices, and will provide a score or “Grush factor” based on the quality of your brushing technique. This is currently a crowdfunding campaign, but you can get the Grush, access to the Cloud, and all the games for $30-45 if you’re speedy. It does come with two replacement heads, but there’s a chance that you’re going to need more than that over the years. Of course, just because this is aimed at kids doesn’t mean it’s strictly for them. If you’d like to make everything you do in life a game, then there’s no shame in getting a Grush for yourself.

Available for crowdfunding on Indiegogo

Bioresponsive Elliptical Trainer helps keep you in shape

Coolest Gadgets - Wed, 2014-04-09 15:00

At the start of any new year, many people do intend to get into shape, but the thing is, how many of us actually go through the necessary motions in order to shed those pounds around our waist? Signing up for a gym membership is always a good idea, but do you have the perseverance to see through the entire membership without dropping out, so to speak, halfway through the year? The $499.95 Bioresponsive Elliptical Trainer might not leave you with any more excuses for not working out, since it can sit right smack in the middle of your living room.

The Bioresponsive Elliptical Trainer happens to be an elliptical trainer that will automatically adjust resistance so that your heart rate will remain in its selected target zone at all times. Riders will first input their age on the control panel before picking one of the pre-programmed target rates (55%, 75% or 90%) of their maximum recommended target, and you can let the elliptical do all the rest of the adjustments automatically so that your heart rate remains within 5 beats per minute of target. As long as you do not weigh more than 250lbs, the Bioresponsive Elliptical Trainer would more than welcome you to pound its pavement.

Kinetic Light Newton’s Cradle delivers some light up goodness to your desk

Coolest Gadgets - Wed, 2014-04-09 14:00

Isaac Newton is definitely one of the more notable thinkers in the history of mankind, where his Newtonian laws continue to be studied and applied even until this day. Well, I am quite sure that many of us, when we were younger, were fascinated by gizmos on certain mahogany desks that did play out Newtonian physics, such as the Newton Cradle. However, the folks over at Thinkgeek decided to bring things to the next level with the introduction of the $49.99 Kinetic Light Newton’s Cradle.

The name of this particular accessory says it all – the Kinetic Light Newton’s Cradle is a futuristic take on this classic desk accessory, where each glass sphere would sport bright, multicolor LEDs. Specially designed and manufactured by Thinkgeek, it is the ideal tool to lose yourself entirely especially when you have had plenty of work and are not quite able to figure out how to handle the accumulated stress. The lights on this advanced Newton’s Cradle will react based on their position, where starting a kinetic chain reaction with one ball will let you observe how the others change color in response. The half dozen AA batteries ought to be able to power the shebang for approximately 13 hours of non-stop use.

Coolest Gadgets - Wed, 2014-04-09 13:00

Samsung Galaxy Ace Style smartphone announced

Coolest Gadgets - Wed, 2014-04-09 12:00

When it comes to rolling out smartphones for the masses, the folks over at Samsung are certainly one of the more productive companies out there, as they seem to have a little bit of something for everyone. In fact, their latest device to be revealed would be the Samsung Galaxy Ace Style, and this is an unheralded handset simply because it does not occupy the higher echelons of smartphones when it comes to the hardware specifications. I suppose if you are in the market for an entry level smartphone that gets the job done, then the Samsung Galaxy Ace Style would be able to fit the bill nicely.

After all, what kind of hardware specifications are we looking at with the Samsung Galaxy Ace Style? First of all, it will run on Android 4.4 KitKat, which is a good thing since you need not wait for a software update to remain ahead of the competition when it comes to the latest features that Android offers. At the back lies a 5MP shooter, while there is a VGA camera in front for selfies. Underneath the hood, you will be able to find a dual-core 1.2GHz processor that is accompanied by 512MB RAM, 4GB of internal memory that thankfully, can be expanded by another 64GB thanks to a microSD memory card slot, a 4″ WVGA TFT display, Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi connectivity, NFC support to keep up with the times, and a 1,500mAh battery.

There will also be Samsung’s intuitive touch-user interface that is known as TouchWiz Essence, while the One Camera Preview feature would pave the way for easy access for both video recording and picture taking in full High Definition glory. You will also be able to find ChatON pre-loaded on the handset so that you can share images, icons and chat with friends right from the get go. No idea on pricing, but it ought to be in the budget realm, where you can choose from Cream White and Dark Gray colors from this month onward.
