The evening’s are getting darker and we’re well on the way to winter now.
So we’ve included an app-controlled multicoloured LED light bulb in this week’s list so you can pretend like it’s spring again.
And thanks to the home-based Echelon smart bike there’s no need to peddle around in the frosty morning air. You can stay fit all through winter in the comfort of your own home.
We’ve also got some great new tech from Motorola, Google and Pioneer rounding out the list.
And anyone who thought the Rubik’s Cube was an outdated toy from the 70s has another thing coming.
Without further ado, here’s the tech that caught our eye this week.
Pioneer raises the DJ bar with an advanced media player that rocks a nine inch touch screen, an aluminium faceplate, fast processing power for minimal latency, an updated jog wheel, dedicated playlist/search buttons and touch preview for effortless track selection.
Rubik’s Connected Cube
Anyone who’s ever lost hours of their life trying to combat the conundrum that is the Rubik’s Cube will appreciate this digital take on the iconic toy that will teach you how to solve it.
Motorola RAZR 5G
Is it second time lucky for Moto’s flip phone? With a refined overcoat, 48/20-megapixel shooters, 5G, beefed-up specs and a quick-view display up front for interaction while unfolded, that’s a yes.
Wi-Fi Bulb App-controlled bulbs don’t have to be expensive. With this multicoloured LED one, there are 16 million colours to choose from, so you can go from dusk to disco at the prod of a touchscreen.
And with geo-location enabled, it will flick your lights on before you get home.
Google Nest Audio
Google’s fabric-covered oblong-shaped smart speaker is the newest residence of its digital assistant. Touch controls live on the top half, while around the back a mic switch prevents it from listening with the simple slide of a button.
Echelon Smart Connect Bike EX3
Finding the motivation to slip into Lycra and spin can be tough.
‘Gamifying’ the process by taking part in thousands of on-demand classes alongside a virtual community of smart exercise bike owners might be a good place to start.
