Must Have or Pass? LG Smart Light Bulb

LG Smart Light Bulb

There seems to be no shortage of “smart” gadgets and accessories, with the latest one being LG’s smart light bulb. Called the Smart Lamp, the 10W-LED bulb gives regular bulbs a run for their money. It connects via Bluetooth and WiFi to both Android and iOS devices so the user can tweak illumination without having to fiddle with the switch. It also comes with a light-based alarm clock and a security mode which lights it up to make it seem like someone’s home.

The Smart Lamp can also be programmed to flash whenever you get a phone call or set to pulse with the beat of the songs you’re listening to, if you’re on Android. The smart bulb is available in Korea 35,000 won ($32). No word yet on its release in the US.

August Smart Lock Takes Home Security to the Next Level…Socially

August Smart Lock

Smart security systems are nothing new, but August takes things to a whole new level by making it social with the August Smart Lock. The product of the work of designer Yves Béhar and technology entrepreneur Jason Johnson, the lock functions like most other smart locks in the market which unlock when the virtual or digital key is detected nearby.

Its defining function is perhaps its social features which makes it easy for the homeowner to provide access to family, friends, and guests when they come over to visit. The lock can be easily retrofitted to fit existing deadbolts, so there’s definitely no problem on that end. In fact, its makers explain that it should just be a quick two-screw job for about 90% of US-made deadbolts.

HAPIfork is the Fork for Dieters and for the Weight Conscious

HAPIFork

CES 2013 is well underway and it’s only a matter of time before the interwebs is flooded with news about quirky devices and gadgets that were unveiling at the annual tech show. The first we’re going to present here is the HAPIfork, which is the smart fork that’s aiming to make a lot of dieters and weight watchers happy.

The HAPIfork has a sensor that detects how fast the user is eating and how often the fork is being used to shove food down the his or her throat. When the fork detects that the user is eating way too fast or way too much, it’ll vibrate gently to remind him or her to slow down. The fork will then send data about the user’s eating habits to a smartphone or computer so that they can be evaluated. It will also be used to draw up a plan that will hopefully encourage the user to stop eating like a glutton.

HAPIfork will launch on Kickstarter sometime in March 2013.
