These 10 tech products may be ridiculous or they may be ingenious. Read on and decide for yourself. Matt Egan of Techadvisor.co.uk mentioned the first two products. They were featured at the CES Convention this year.
1. The iPot
This cooking device uses smartphone sensors to help with dinner prep. It will be on the market soon with a price tag of $250. If you don’t need something this smart, your crock-pot will still get the job done.
2. E-Go Cruiser
This skateboard is also controlled by a smartphone. It’s battery powered, so you only need to lean forward to make it move. The $699 price tag seems steep. Old fashioned skateboards provide more exercise.
Lisette Mejia of Geeksugar.com, mentioned some of these tech products from the CES Convention.
This is a rear-type keyboard that is hand-held and used in mobile settings. I’m sure there are users out there for this type of product. However, learning to type in this new way might be a challenge.
4. Yellow Jacket
This case protects your iPhone and also doubles as a stun-gun. It’s hard to call this one ridiculous, because it seems like a smart idea.
5. Eink Wall Clock
It’s a huge digital looking clock. If you have space and $500, it will make a bold statement.
6. Mipow Playbulb
Is it a light-bulb or a sound system? It’s both. This fun product kills two birds with one stone.
Mihaita Bamburic of betanews.com, wrote about these two tech products.
This is the first toothbrush with silicone bristles. The design is unique. It vibrates and can be used 365 times after one charge. But does it result in cleaner teeth? The jury is still out on that one.
This product looks like a nesting doll. It helps you achieve goals by tracking what you do against the goals that were programmed. It’s like having an electronic smother at your finger tips.
These last two are tech products that seem outdated for 2014.
9. Blu-ray Players
With Red Box, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, who needs a Blu-ray player? They still make them, but I’m not sure why anyone would need one.
It’s like a Gremlin that speaks another language. It laughs, gets angry and eats from an iPad. Sadly, Hasbro’s creation continues to be reincarnated.
Tech products come and go, but only time will tell which ones have true staying power.
