We all know and love our Bluetooth headphones and car audio – but there’s a whole Bluetooth world out there. Bluetooth technology is now available in tons of gadgets, including some that you probably had no idea existed (but totally need!). Here are a few of our favorites for your window-shopping pleasure.
Smarter Coffee and iKettle
Wish you could wake up and have your coffee or tea ready and waiting for you? Stop dreaming – Smarter has created Wi-Fi enabled coffee pots and tea kettles that you can control via your smartphone. Use the app to schedule your coffee to be ready right when you wake up, or heat your kettle to the perfect temperature with a custom dial.
Unfortunately, Smarter’s products are not currently compatible with the U.S. voltage system, but you don’t have to make a move to the U.K. just yet; simply purchase a U.S. to U.K. travel power adapter, and your fancy new kettle will be good to go.
Make sure to throw a FridgeCam in your cart when you order your iKettle from Smarter. It’s the camera you never knew you needed, but once you have it, you’ll wonder what you ever did without it. Use the smartphone app to check in on what’s in the fridge — and ensure you don’t forget anything at the grocery store. FridgeCam will even send you alerts when you’re running low on milk and when the expiration dates on your food are approaching. Grocery shopping has never been easier.
Digitize your notebook with the Moleskine Paper Tablet. You won’t have to say goodbye to your paper notebook. Use the tablet and Pen+, then transfer your notes to your phone with just the press of a button. From there, you can email or post your digitized notes wherever you like.
Furbo makes it a little easier to leave your dog home alone during the day. You’ll get a notification on your phone when your dog barks. Open the app, and you’ll be able to interact with your dog from anywhere! Use the two-way speaker to talk to your dog and turn on the camera to see what he’s up to. Furbo even includes a treat dispenser so you can reward your dog for good behavior or help comfort a worried pup who’s home alone. Who wouldn’t love to check in on their dog during the day? Now you can!
