The Weird Tech Gadgets You Need to Know About

January 23, 2018

When supported by technological advancements, business ideas now have so much more room to grow. There have been so many innovative devices created out of this incredible growth, but there has also been a fair share of strange creations that have appeared on the market.

We have narrowed down some of the weirder tech creations, specifically ones that connect to an app and, therefore, the internet. They have been built to streamline processes in many regards, but also show the way we have truly allowed technology to encompass various activities in our lives.

Here are some of the weirdest tech gadgets you need to know about!

Quirky Egg Minder

For those that want to have a fully digital home, this addition is the slightly ridiculous gadget you didn’t know you needed: an egg tray that connects to the internet.

The Quirky Egg Minder allows you to monitor your eggs, sending you notifications when you are about to run out, and inform you if they are close to their expiration date. The LED lights imbedded seamlessly into the tray illuminate the egg that is closest to its use by date so that you can use it first for your morning scrambled eggs.

Hidrate Spark and Brita Infinity Connected

Moving on to new ways to get smart with our water, we have these next two gadgets.

The Hidrate Spark is a smart water bottle which monitors your water intake and reminds you, through a companion app, to hydrate yourself. It is arguably one of the priciest drink bottles on the market, but for those that really struggle with their water intake, it may be worth it.

Following on from the Hidrate Spark, the Brita Infinity wants to make sure that users ‘never run out of great tasting water’. The WIFI connected water pitcher does everything that normal water filtration jugs do, except this one orders a new filter once the current has outlived its expediency. It automatically buys a new filter from Amazon, which Brita paired with for the device.

Kuvée Bottle

Perfect the way you connect with your wine through Kuvée, a smart accessory for your wine bottle. The attachable touch screen allows users to get to know their bottle of wine, providing titbits and history about the drop. The Kuvée also allows users to food-match with their wine, and rate the wine so that the device can then find you suitable matches to your palate. If that wasn’t enough, it also has systems in place to keep the wine fresher for longer.

HAPIfork

Research has shown that eating meals too quickly can lead to digestive issues, and even cause weight gain. That is why HAPIfork was made for those who like to eat their meals quickly, reminding them to slow down through gentle vibrations and indicator lights. More than that, the cutlery also allows the user to understand the intervals that should be had between mouthfuls, and the speed at which they should be eating. The data can then be collated within the accompanying app, coaching users on how to improve their eating behaviour.
