To help you overcome the problem of researching your own superior-tech set up, this article assembled a list of the best gadgets available right now in 2020 you need for all your endeavours; from listening to music to writing documents quickly, these gadgets have got you covered.
We have seen a lot of folding tablet and laptop concepts come out of this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) but unsurprisingly no great rush of actual, foldable products. The product itself is reminiscent of Microsoft’s nifty Surface Neo but with the major difference of using a folding 13.3-inch OLED display instead of two separate screens. A keyboard accessory can slide onto one 9.6-inch half when sat up like a laptop, fit snugly in the gap when closed or be used with the device itself propped up by the built-in kickstand.
Tile announced its latest line of trackers will finally have replaceable batteries. In addition, the company is rolling out a new Premium service that promises, among other features, free battery replacements every year. The aforementioned trackers are a new Tile Mate and a new Tile Pro. The new Tile Mate has an improved Bluetooth range of 150 feet, and is 100 percent louder than its predecessor is. As for the new Tile Pro, that now has 300 feet of range (100 more than the original Pro), and is 50 percent louder than last year's model. Flip both of them over, and you will see that both have tiny compartments, each housing regular coin cell batteries.
Samsung's second foldable phone, the Galaxy Z Flip has a clamshell design and pops open like the Motorola Razr, instead of spreading out like a book, as the Galaxy Fold does. The compact device expands to a 6.7-inch display using bendable ultra-thin glass with a hole-punch camera. When closed, a small cover display shows the time, battery status and ions
Segway’s new self-balancing motorized egg has a top speed of 35 kilometres per hour. You sit in it and steer it using a joystick on the right side of the seat (rather than standing and leaning in any direction). Being a two-wheeler, it still uses the familiar gyroscopic self-balancing tech as a traditional Segway. However, having only a pair of wheels should also mean it will be easily manoeuvrable, too, except when it comes to stairs since it weighs a hefty 150kg. It is not on the company’s site at the moment, but expect this to be pitched at campuses, theme parks, airport markets very soon.
Instead of visual changes, the Galaxy Buds Plus comes with a major internal overhaul. They now have an industry-leading 11 hours of battery life (more than double the juice offered by AirPods and AirPods Pro), better microphones, and special new audio tuning from Samsung-owned AKG. The Galaxy Buds Plus has dual dynamic drivers, so they should offer a step up in audio fidelity compared to the previous model. In addition, you can see that there are now two external microphones (for a total of three), which Samsung says helps improve e call performance.
Bose Frames are headphones you wear in the form of a stylish pair of sunglasses. Available in two different models, Alto and Rando, the Bluetooth audio sunglasses aims to deliver in-ear headphone quality sound without the in-ear headphones concept. Bose positioned speakers that direct sound into your ear. The sunglasses are capable of providing three and a half hours of music playback and 12 hours of standby on a single charge. A single button on the bottom right side of the frame allows one to power on and off the device, play and pause music, as well as activate Siri or Google Assistant. In addition, a mi allows users to make and take phone calls, and speak to the digital helper of their choice. Both pairs of sunglasses are also IPX2-certified water-resistant.
Several smart locks were debuted at CES 2020, but Benjilock's new Livia Deadbolt stood out for its attractive design, advanced features, and ease of use. You can open the lock with a fingerprint sensor, a keypad, Hampton's Array by Hampton app, geofencing (enabling the door to lock or unlock based on your location) Alexa, Google Assistant, or Apple HomeKit. The app is particularly handy, as it allows you to control other Hampton locks and smart devices (the company makes security cameras, plugs, bulbs, and more) in one place. Livia can store up to 10 fingerprints and 25 PIN codes (you can limit access and assign temporary keys) and scrambles the keypad each time you use it.
