This week we are checking out some of the awesome new products in tech for the Summer of 2017. You can still currently get all of these items on their respective pages, so if you like what you see, make sure you check it out now!
1. CIO – The Battery Free Bike Light
Have your bicycle lights ever gone out at an inopportune time? Well you never have to worry about that again with CIO! CIO is a remarkable piece of hardware that will bring peace of mind to cyclists all over the globe. It was created by Reelight, an environmentally conscious company from Denmark, committed to keeping people safe.
CIO works by utilizing the Reelight, the easily attachable component that contains the the light, and the magnet which attaches to the spoke of the bike that triggers the Reelight with each revolution. It really is amazing!
2. Kado – The World’s Thinnest Wall-Charger
The missing piece in your everyday carry. Forget about low-battery anxiety: grab a super-thin wall charger and charge up anywhere. Kado is thinner than a pencil and can come in handy when you need it most. Being a QuickCharge wall charger that fits in your wallet, everyone can get use out of this device.
They’re not kidding when they say “the world’s thinnest wall-charger”. The Kado comes in at just 0.2″ (5mm) thin and is only 0.74oz (21g). For comparison, the insanely thin iPhone 7 is 0.28″ (7.1mm) thick, making it nearly 30% thinner.
3. The Backtab – Convenient Travel Backrest
Have you ever been out with friends at the beach, picnic, or festival and wanted a convenient way to sit down comfortably? Travel chairs are normally large and entirely impracticable to have on you at all times while walking around. This is where the awesomeBacktabcomes in!
The intention behind the creation of the Backtab was to create a tablet sized comfortable backrest. Making it tablet sized was important, because the goal was to have it fit in just about any backpack, making it the perfect travel companion. The Backtab is a surprisingly small fold able backrest designed to go with you wherever you go. The size and weight are comparable to a tablet, fits in nearly every bag, yet is as comfortable as a much larger standard beach chair.
4. Kiddo: Smart Health Band For Young Kids
We recently got to check out the Kiddo smart health band for young kids and it seems like it could be a real game changer in monitoring the health of your child.
Making the watches personalizable with fun graphics and preloaded games has children wanting to wear it, and you get to keep track of your children’s health, sleep, eating, and exercise habits. All of this data is fed back to your phone, giving you peace of mind that everything is OK, and the knowledge that you’ll be alerted if it’s not.
5. Obsidian – $99 3D Printer
Have you wanted to tinker with your own 3D printer but the price tag was always out of reach? Well, you definitely will not find a plug & print machine anywhere near as affordable as the new Obsidian desktop 3D printer. It’s no wonder they have already made over 8 times their asking goal on Kickstarter.
3D printing always requires some background knowledge in order to consistently get clean prints. That being said, it is basically unheard of to find a 3D printer under $300 that is “Plug & Print”. This means there are no DIY instructions, you can just take it out of the box, load your filament, plug in the power, and you’re good to go.
