You’re looking at the best bedside table ever: The Victrola Bluetooth Speaker Table. The entire thing is one large bluetooth speaker that works with Qi wireless charging. So all you need to do is put your phone down on the table at night, and it charges itself without ever needing to plug anything in. If you have Siri or Alexa, you can even do voice commands to ask it to play your favorite music.

Do you ever wish that you could give your dog or cat a treat while you’re away from home? Well, now you can with the PetCube. It comes with a camera and a speaker, so you can see your pets and speak to them from far away. This helps them not feel so lonely, but it can also be used for training to make sure your pets don’t destroy the house while you’re gone.

38. Kohler’s Smart Toilet

Kohler’s “Numi” is a multifunctional toilet that is compatible with Amazon Alexa. This means that you can speak to your toilet and have it flush, lift the seat, prepare the bidet, or play songs from the toilet. (In Japan, it’s popular to have sound effects playing on their toilets to cover up the sounds of going number two.) Kohler CEO David Kohler said, “Voice services and connected devices have become integrated into every facet of the home—with the notable exception of the bathroom, until now.

37. Philips 3-in-1 Air Purifier

Many of you out there may have tried out an air purifier during the pandemic, since they help to cut down on toxins in the air that cause allergies, colds, and viruses. The Philips 3-in-1 Air Purifier is different from all the rest because it works as a fan, purifier, and even a heater all in one. The reason why it’s so important to have both a heat and a cooling function is because of heat inversion. In the cooler months, a layer of warm air covers cooler air. All pollutants that would normally get blown away become trapped. So by changing the fan to the heating function, you can still clean the air in all kinds of weather.

36. LG OLED Rollable TV

Have you ever dreamed of having a rollable TV? Probably not, but people didn’t want folding smartphones either, until they could have it. This LG OLED just might be the beginning of a new fad with televisions. When the TV is off, it just looks like a rectangular cabinet that could be mistaken as a speaker. But when it’s on, the TV rolls out to its full 65 inches. This is perfect for anyone who’s trying to follow the Feng Shui rules of minimizing screens whenever possible. The only downside to this TV is that it costs $100,000.

35. UV Light Water Pitcher

There are plenty of pitchers out there that clean your water, like Brita and LifeStraw. But there is a brand new pitcher on the market called Larq, which actually cleans your water twice. Like most other brands, it has both “essential” and “advanced” filters to trap dirt particles from the water. But then it also uses a UV light filter called “PureVis” to clean your water. The top of the water pitcher changes colors to let you know when it’s time to swap out your filters or change the battery on the UV light.

33. Ikea Symfonisk Picture Frame

Ikea is known for creating products that make your home look cool, hip, and up-to-date, and the Symfonisk picture frame is no exception. It’s a stereo speaker hidden behind a piece of artwork. So you can have this hanging on the wall, and your guests will never realize that it was actually a piece of tech. Unfortunately, you can’t customize what type of artwork you put on the front of this speaker just yet, so you would be stuck with the black geometric print that you see above.

So this tech knows exactly when you enter your first stages of sleep, and when you enter REM. During the first state of sleep, it turns on a cooling system to lower the body’s core temperature, so you can sleep faster and deeper. On top of that, 100 computer controlled air cushions alleviate all of your body’s pressure points. In the end, all of the information of how much sleep you got is documented, so you can check to see if it’s helping with how much rest you get at night. If it’s too expensive for you to buy on your own, you can stay at one of many hotels that are going to carry this bed.

This would be perfect for glamping, but it also just might replace your next TV upgrade.
