I don’t think anyone will argue that the recent advancements in technology have made our lives considerably easier. Those people who told us we wouldn’t have a calculator on us at all times are probably banging their heads against the wall right now. From phones to smart TV’s, technology has made life easy and entertaining as ever. There might be a few devices you’re not already aware of that can improve your daily routine, and there’s definitely going to be more in the future as well.
Auto Shut-Off Wall Outlets
You might have personal experience leaving your hair straightener or coffee-maker (if you aren’t using a Keurig yet) on for too long. Auto shut-off wall outlets do exactly what they say they do, and turn off those pesky items we forget to turn off ourselves. This adds a huge amount of convenience and safety into our lives. You won’t need to remind yourself to turn anything off, and some of these devices come with multiple settings that let you choose how long you want to leave them on for.
White Noise Devices For Babies
If you’re tackling the challenges of raising a newborn, and you’re not getting much shut-eye you can look into a white noise device for your little one. If you’ve ever noticed how babies seem to fall asleep in the car, or when listening to certain noises you’ll know that this can be a huge asset to getting yourself some extra shut-eye. The authorities at Mommy on Demand provides a list of some of the best white noise machines for babies you can find. It has a list of which ones worked, so that it would help you avoid purchasing the bad ones.
Don’t Lose Anything Again
A device called the tile allows you to attach anything to this small square shaped item and allow you to keep track of it by making a noise if you interact with the app. If you’re anything like me and you’re losing your keys constantly, this makes for an easy way of finding them around the house. It can save you the 15 minutes of scratching your head and trying to retrace your steps, figuring out where you put something last.
That One Room in the House…
We all have that one room in the house where the wifi just doesn’t quite reach. If you’re finding you’re not able to connect to your wifi from the basement, you can look into getting yourself a wifi extender. No more need to frustratingly wait for your social media to load on one bar, just connect to your wifi and you’re good to go.
Technology is helping us make our lives easier, and quicker, and these are just some examples of how it does that. Odds are if you’re facing a problem in your life, there’s probably an item that addresses that issue. From everything to keeping the little one asleep, to keeping track of lost car keys, technology is definitely making our lives better.
I am interested in all things technology, especially automation, robotics and tech that helps change how society will live in the future.
