Every month, new tech gadgets hit the market. Some of them will be one-of-a-kind, while others will be generic. I come across hundreds, if not thousands, of goods every month as a tech geek, and we cover some of the coolest tech gadgets on our website. I’ll be highlighting the coolest gadgets and tech that we come across every month in this post. The majority of the items in this post were crowdfunded. They can be found on either Kickstarter or Indiegogo. As you may be aware, crowdfunded items are far more interesting than a regular new tech product launch from a well-known corporation. Crowdfunded tech products, on the other hand, may take many months to reach their backers. In any case, they’re fantastic.
This post will be updated at least once a month, if not more frequently. In addition, I’ve included a list of my favorite products from the preceding months. Please let me know if you have any other product recommendations in the contact section.
1. SRS-NB10 Wireless Neckband Speaker
What if listening to music didn’t have to imply that you were cutting yourself off from the rest of the world? Sony’s new Neckband speaker rests your ears and sits on your shoulders, shooting sounds in a focussed beam towards your ears. There’s a built-in microphone and Bluetooth connectivity, so you can answer calls or listen to music from up to 30 meters away from your computer — no need to leave a meeting to make a cup of tea.
You won’t have to worry about bothering your partner or housemates, though, because Sony claims that the full-range speaker’s upward angle optimizes sound for your ears only, but we’ll have to test that out for ourselves! The neckband is light and comfy, weighing only 113g. Choose between dark grey and spotless white.
2. NightWatch Magnifying Clock Dock for Apple Watch
Not all technology requires wires and buttons. This NightWatch orb enlarges the display of an Apple Watch, thus converting it into an alarm clock for your bedside table. The watch’s MagSafe charger is stored in a slot on the rear, and tapping the surface of the orb wakes up the watch screen so you can view the time. In addition, the NightWatch’s design amplifies sound, converting your watch into an effective alarm clock.
3. Gigabyte Aorus 17G
With all the extra wings, gubbins, and lights that get slapped onto the design, most gaming laptops wouldn’t look out of place at a steampunk rave, which is why we like this minimalist powerhouse from Gigabyte. It’s a powerful computer with a slim and elegant design. The Aorus is equipped with the most up-to-date Nvidia SUPER graphics card, which was designed to handle ray tracing, the intricate lighting visuals used in today’s games. The display can run at a blistering 300Hz, ensuring that games run smoothly on the screen.
If you’re one of the gaming professionals for whom this laptop was built, the fast refresh rate means there’s no apparent latency between your input and what appears on the screen. The laptop also includes a real mechanical keyboard, which provides pleasing clicks with each keypress. If you need more convincing, we’ve heard that with all this equipment, it’s fairly capable when it comes to video and audio editing.
4. Meeting Owl Pro
As more people work remotely and online meetings become increasingly common, technology has advanced to make the experience more efficient and immersive, with the meeting owl pro serving as an excellent example.
It’s equipped with a 360-degree camera, eight microphones, and a speaker to simulate an in-person meeting while being separated from coworkers. It’s a smart piece of gear that interacts with Zoom, Slack, Google Hangouts, and more, with an 18-foot audio pickup radius and an automated zoom that adjusts to who is speaking at the time.
5. Rocketbook Smart Reusable Notebook
This smart notebook features 32 pages that are easy to wipe clean with a moist cloth when used with Pilot Frixion pens for the eco-conscious note-taker. They claim it’s the first reusable notepad of its sort, and that thanks to its special space-aged paper, it feels just like writing on a standard pad.
It comes in a variety of sizes and may be used with the Rocketbook app. This allows you to scan your notes and save them to your preferred cloud, ensuring that you never lose your work and can simply access any sketches, notes, or lists in the future.
6. KODAK Luma 150 Pocket Projector
The KODAK Luma 150 portable projector promises to expand the screen to up to 150 inches while delivering bright, vivid images. It’s small enough to fit in a briefcase if you need to make a presentation for work, or your backpack if you want to watch a movie or enlarge your gaming experience on the go.
The boasts built-in surround sound speakers and a headphone port for the private watch. 2.5-hour battery life that can recharge via a small USB.
7. Grado SR80x headphones
Grado’s headphones have great quality and design. They sound warm, vibrant, and bass-heavy, and they have a retro and minimalist aesthetic. They’ve recently revamped their award-winning lineup, and the SR80x is our favorite of the bunch.
Because they’re open-backed, the audio may bleed out a little, so you might not use it on the train. However, it makes them lighter and more comfortable to use at home for extended periods, and it gives the audio a more spacious sound than a closed-back pair. The new headphones also have better drivers, which improve the bass and mid-range. Without a doubt, one of the best sets we’ve worn for under £150.
8. Belkin magnetic phone mount with face-tracking
This motorized phone stand will work with the face-tracking feature on your iPhone 12 to follow you around a room while you strut your stuff on TikTok (no? We don’t), so make a YouTube video or a Zoom call.
It takes advantage of the iPhone 12’s MagSafe technology, allowing you to simply magnetically clasp the phone into place and go.
9. MyZone MZ-Switch heart rate monitor
Even if you aren’t, this fitness tracker is ready for anything. The MZ-Switch monitors your heart rate to determine how hard you’re working during your workout.
Its distinctive feature to inserted into several straps to read your heart rate from your wrist, arm, or chest. It’s also waterproof, so there aren’t many activities it won’t monitor. That implies it’ll be able to tell me just how much of a slob I am in my instance.
10. Naim Uniti Atom Headphone Edition
This Naim streaming music system might be the finest way to slip on a pair of headphones, sink into an armchair, and forget about the world for a couple of hours. This new Uniti model essentially crams all of the hi-fi gear you’ll need to make high-fidelity audio into a single tiny box (headphones not included).
There’s a digital-to-analog (DAC) converter and a headphone amplifier within, as well as a slew of other features that optimize your music library for use with headphones. It’s a self-contained system that includes high-resolution streaming services like Qobuz and Tidal, as well as Spotify and Apple Music. It also has an option for wired or wirelessly connected to your smartphone or laptop.
