The coronavirus curve has only begun to flatten, and most of us are still stuck indoors. In an era of masks and social distancing, it can be difficult to keep yourself entertained. Fortunately, the last few years have brought with them a new wave of innovation and ingenuity, and there’s no shortage of nifty gadgets and gizmos to make your life a little more exciting. That said, if you and your friends love tech, keep reading below for some fun ideas.
Shoot Some Aerial Footage
A drone can capture photos and videos that are simply impossible to take with an ordinary camera. Not only do modern drones have large image sensors capable of capturing professional-looking photos and videos, but they are also equipped with advanced anti-collision and obstacle avoidance systems. With a drone, no angle is too difficult to hold. Consumer drones have significantly shrunken in size over the years, and most can fit in your pocket now. This means that you can fly them through even the narrowest of spaces for some funky-looking footage. Although these drones are limited to a maximum of 20 to 25 minutes of flight time, spare batteries are usually inexpensive.
Communicate With The Other Side
If you’re an avid Ghostbusters fan, chances are you already own an EMF meter. EMF meters have always been the staple of ghost hunting equipment since professionals believe that ghosts can cause changes in electromagnetic fields.
However, if you want to take your ghost hunting kit to the next level, you should purchase a SpiritShack Spirit Box. Professionals believe that spirits can communicate with us using white noise, and this clever little gadget can scan AM and FM frequencies to capture incoming messages. Unlike an ordinary radio that can only play a single channel at once, a Spirit Box can sweep multiple channels simultaneously.
Get Better Sleep
You’ve probably heard hundreds of times that you need at least 7 to 8 hours of sleep every night. However, the quality of sleep is often more important than the quantity. Sleep deprivation isn’t something that should be taken lightly since it can cause several mental and physical problems.
If you’re a light sleeper, live near a busy road, or have a partner who snores, it’s worth purchasing specially designed earphones for sleep. These earphones connect to your phone via Bluetooth and can block out ambient noise or play relaxing sounds. Unlike normal earphones, which often protrude out of your ear quite far out, sleep earphones are small and size and lightweight so that you can wear them all night long. If you have a snoring partner or are a snorer yourself, consider purchasing a smart pillow (that’s right, we now have smart pillows too). These pillows can detect that you’re snoring and nudge you to move your head using a vibrating motor.
Take Your Indoor Garden To The Next Level
Gardening is an excellent hobby. It’s quite the stress-reliever too, and watching your plants grow is nothing short of satisfying. Unfortunately, not everyone has a green thumb, and very few people have outdoor gardens.
Smart gardens have everything you need for a superior indoor gardening experience. Self-watering functionality is standard, and most smart gardens have built-in LED grow lights that can adapt to different ambient lighting conditions. Some of the more advanced models can maintain temperature levels and the pH of the soil, too, ensuring the best possible environment for your plants. While they aren’t the cheapest tech on our list, we’d recommend purchasing a smart garden if you live in a smaller apartment or don’t have the time to maintain a large outdoor garden.
Warp Into Another Dimension
Virtual-reality headsets are a gateway to the next generation of immersive entertainment. You can pretty much put yourself at the center of whatever you’re watching. Admittedly, early virtual-reality headsets were clunky and clumsy; for starters, they weren’t very powerful, and their screens weren’t the highest of quality. More importantly, there simply wasn’t much you could do with one. There were only a handful of virtual-reality games, and any virtual-reality applications had tons of bugs.
These days, however, the story is different. Not only are virtual-reality headsets readily available at different prices, but they’re also powerful and intuitive to use. There’s now a myriad of excellent virtual-reality games that put you at the center of all the action.
Upgrade Your Lighting
Sure, warm lights are way better than cold lights, which make your home feel office-like. They’re still ordinary, though – boring if you ask us. Upgrade your home’s lighting by investing in some smart lights. You’ll usually come across two types of smart lights: strips and traditional bulbs. Both can be controlled through an app on your phone, and you can select between hundreds of colors. More expensive offerings can also be connected to a smart home system and be controlled with your voice. For instance, you tell your phone that it’s time to sleep, and all your smart lights should turn off themselves.
Drink Your Coffee With Comfort
Don’t you just hate those last couple of sips when your coffee has gone cold? Do yourself a favor and start using a smart mug. A smart mug can keep your drink at the exact temperature that you prefer. These mugs can also cool down a drink that’s too hot so that you don’t end up burning your lips as soon as you take the first sip. You’ll find smart mugs in all sorts of shapes and sizes, from the traditionally shaped ones to closed ones which are perfect for carrying to work. Most mugs charge via a USB cable and should last a couple of hours between charges.
With tech, there’s always something for everyone. With the speed at which technology is progressing, we’ll always have devices that make our lives better. If you’re a techy yourself, it’s likely that you already have the latest phone or laptop. However, the chances are that you haven’t come across some of the unique gadgets that we’ve mentioned above. These gadgets make excellent presents for your tech-loving friends, and we’d definitely recommend adding them to your shopping list!
