Are you tired of trudging through the snow? Drive a Moonbike instead.

The Moonbike from France is an ideal micro-mobility choice for more frigid, snowy climes like Canada. The Moonbike is designed to boldly take the rider where few electrics have gone before. Instead of wheels, it has a single ski up front with an electric motor-powered snow tread in the back.

While the Moonbike looks fun, it’s not particularly practical, as the battery only lasts one hour. That won’t take you far across the tundra. With its maximum speed of 40 km/h, you won’t collect any speeding tickets.

Bev, the robot bartender

Are you missing a high-tech cocktail maker for your home?

Black+Decker now makes Bev, a practical robot bartender. Bev is a Keurig-style countertop bar that uses five stainless steel straws to suck alcohol from five standard 750 ml liquor bottles of your favourite liquors. There’s no need for custom bottles, no need to turn the bottles upside-down and potentially make a mess.

To whip up craft cocktails, Bev also uses pods filled with the juices and bitters you need. After completing a cocktail, Bev flushes the pipes with air and water to clean itself out. Making a refreshing drink at home couldn’t be easier.

Are you tired of your dreary, dull smartphone case?

Starcase is a stylish personalized smartphone case that lights up with your choice of hundreds of shows. The Starcase removable LED panel allows you to create cool effects and designs. You can set custom light effects for different notifications, such as texts, calls, and other third-party apps looking for attention.

If you need a smartphone case that produces a small light show instead of a jarring grunt for every ring or notification, then Starcase is for you.

Halo hairdryer

Is your hairdryer scorching your hair?

Halo from Zuvi is a futuristic-looking hairdryer that uses light instead of a heating coil. Light is more efficient and safer for your hair because there’s no risk of burning. Halo considers room temperature when setting its light intensity to avoid overheating your hair.

TV for displaying NFTs

Have you spent a lot of money on NFTs and need a way to show those virtual objects to your friends?

Non-fungible tokens (NFTs), essentially digital art bought and sold on the blockchain, are all the rage nowadays. But how do you display them in the real world? Samsung has an answer in the form of its latest TV lineup. The TV comes with an upgraded Smart Hub that includes an NFT browser that you can use to display your NFTs and browse various art pieces available for sale.

Archer AXE11000 WiFi router

Do you need to upgrade your WiFi router to handle the exploding network traffic all your connected devices are generating?

Routers are usually boring, but TP-Link’s Archer AXE11000 boasts futuristic mechanical rotating antennas. The four antennas rotate to pinpoint your smartphone or laptop as you move, to serve uninterrupted WiFi everywhere in your home.

The router offers lightning-fast connectivity, high throughput and support for the new 6 GHz WiFi band.

You might consider this router if you walk around a lot. Perhaps this router is for someone who wants to locate it where guests can admire it in action.

Smart health monitoring light bulb

Will a smarter light bulb help you monitor your health?

Sengled’s new smart health monitoring light bulb goes way beyond mere lighting to offer built-in health monitoring radar technology. Capabilities include sleep tracking and biometric measurements such as heart rate, body temperature, and other vital signs. Sengled uses Frequency-Modulated Continuous Wave (FMCW) radar and advanced proprietary AI algorithms to gather health measurements. You no longer need to wear a smartwatch for this capability.

If you need the ultimate high-tech light bulb, then Sengled’s smart health monitoring light bulb is for you. A simpler, cheaper light bulb will be enough for the rest of us.

Steambox for lunches

Are you tired of cold lunches?

Steambox is a connected lunchbox that heats food with a simple button push. Food will be warm in 8-12 minutes.

It creates steam using its built-in electric heating technology. You add water along with your lunch in the morning. It comes with an app to alert you when food is ready, offer recipe suggestions and check the remaining battery charge.
