Here is a list of really innovative and revolutionary gadgets from CES 2015. I for one really liked the QuitBit smart lighter because I have been trying to quit for years but I think with this lighter I can finally achieve the impossible (Cigarette break now).
Kube Music is good. Beer is good. Kube enjoys both, just like you do. The handsome speaker/cooler combo has 33 quarts of storage space for beverages and can crank your BBQ mix upwards of 100 dB without distortion. Best part is the battery life: It gets 20 hours on one charge, so you’ll pass out before it does. Worst part is the price tag: $1,100.
QuitBit This smart cigarette lighter tracks your smoking habits so you can eventually meet your goal of quitting. The lighter counts each time you light up, and the accompanying app lets you set a goal date for when you want to be smoke free, then gently lowers the number of allowed cigarettes per day leading up to that goal date. It goes on sale in March for $100.
Parrot Pot This simple-looking white pot from Parrot houses a water reservoir inside. Using the companion app, you can irrigate your greenery just by tapping your phone’s screen. It also measures temperature, sunlight, and fertilizer requirements. You’ll be able to stop killing your plants via neglect later this year when it goes on sale.
Fitguard In contact sports, concussions and other brain injuries are often difficult to detect. Via its built-in accelerometer and gyroscope, the Fitguard mouthpiece monitors linear and angular acceleration to detect a possible concussion-class impact. It lights up if you take a heavy bruising, alerting teammates and coaches that medical attention is needed. It’s supposed to go on sale in September or October.
Devialet Phantom. The weird thing is that Devialet’s mesmerizing sphere is no gimmick. The wireless Phantom has built-in amplification, built-in digital-to-analog conversion, and side-domes that vibrate hypnotically when the Hz take a dip. Oh, and it sounds incroyable.
Zolt Even if you have one of those fancy light laptops, there’s a problem with it. It’s the brick, the too-bulky adapter that adds weight to your bag and blocks slots on your power strip. The $80 Zolt delivers 70W from three USB ports—the top one can charge a laptop, and the others can charge your phone or tablet. The octagonal mini-tower swivels to keep adjacent outlets usable.
SmartMat If you want to bypass the years of dedication and practice you need to become a master yogi, you’re out of luck. But SmartMat could at least help speed up the process. SmartMat, which should ship in September, first ascertains your measurements, flexibility, and abilities. From there, it offer guidance on your position as you move through the poses. It has different modes for when you’re at home or in a class.
Oku Skin Health Sensor You’ve quantified your steps and your sleep. Now what? How about your skin. Oku, coming this spring, will use an optical sensor to peer into your epidermis, sending readings on moisture, oils, wrinkles and the like back to an accompanying app. The app makes suggestions on how to make yourself more beautimous, say by tweaking your diet.
HP Mini PCs It’s not often you see a computer and go “Awww.” But HP‘s tiny machines are pretty darn cute. The $180 Stream Mini has 2GB of RAM and a 32GB hard drive. The $320 Pavilion Mini is more powerful. Both tupperware-sized machines run Windows 8.1 and can live happily on desks, under TVs, and sitting on kitchen counters alike.
Phāz These over-ear headphones aren’t quite a perpetual motion machine, but they’re the next best thing. The Phāz cans charge your phone or tablet while you’re rocking out with them, thanks to an onboard 1200mAh battery. The headphones themselves can be used passively while jacked into a 3.5mm port, but the onboard battery can be used as an amp when you don’t need the juice for your mobile’s battery.
