5 Gadgets You Should Splurge On

Feed your inner geek with the latest in VR and drones

Written By Amina Kaabi

Technology is moving at exceptional rates these days. At times it can feel like every week there’s a new ‘it’ gadget for us to splurge all our money on, and although some devices have been adopted as everyday necessities, others exist purely for fun—and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that.

 

From home devices designed to make your life better, to drones for underwater selfies – we round up some of our favourites.

 

 

PowerRay Underwater Drone

 

Drones have become all the rage over the last few years—and PowerRay have taken the drone world to new heights with their latest underwater drone. The drone can dive down 30-meters deep—and can detect fish up to 40 meters away. While it’s technically designed for fishing purposes, the drone can also be a fun gadget to take on your next vacation.

U by Moen Smart Shower

 

At this point, it’s safe to say that technology has become integrated throughout our homes and even our showers. Early last year, Moen released their U Smart Shower, designed to give you control every aspect of your shower experience. Through an app on your smartphone, you can turn on your shower, set your preferred temperature and water pressure.

Vuzix Blade Augmented Reality Smart Glasses

 

Vitual reality glasses have been around for some time now—but most are pretty bulky and frankly—unappealing. But the Vurix Blade is a game changer. At only three unces, the glasses are black, sleek and super-lightweight.With a touchpad on the right arm, they’re also pretty easy to use. And to top things off—Amazon’s digital assistant, Alexa, is built in.
