When it comes to new technology, we’re always on the edge of our seats. Brands of all sizes are able to throw their hat in the ring thanks to crowdfunding. Plus, with the internet, new ideas get pushed in front of more viewers at a faster rate than ever. This not only popularizes a single product, but it brings the median knowledge about technology among the masses up a notch. With this, innovation accelerates even faster.
Just a few years ago, a smart assistant’s limited capabilities could tell us basic information such as the weather. Now, smart assistants can learn from our preferences and thereby further automate processes for us. And we can’t get enough.
While a robot takeover is highly unlikely, all of this innovation begs the question: what could possibly come next? Before we get ahead of ourselves, let’s talk about the here and now. Just in 2019, we’ve seen exceptionally fascinating innovation across all fields of technology. Here are the most amazing new gadgets so far this year.
The obvious excitement for any new innovation is about automation. Any time a device can do the heavy lifting for us is a time we celebrate. The Window Wizard from Limodo is an intelligent robot that scrubs your windows. Using powerful suction, it attaches to your windows and glass doors. Then, using smart sensors, it moves about the class, clearing away dirt, grime, and fingerprints with ease. It’s so smart that it can accurately map out its path for the most efficient cleaning and it’ll detect edges so it doesn’t fall.
It’s 2019; we should be able to access all our music from a single spot. With the Denon HEOS 3, that’s a reality. This surprisingly compact speaker delivers big sound from just about any and every music source. It works with all sorts of streaming apps but also connects via Bluetooth to other sources. You can even plug in via USB. If the big sound isn’t big enough for you, you can pair multiple units together to create house-fill surround sound.
Throwback to everyone’s childhood dream: now there’s a spy cam you can buy and you’ll actually use. The HD Mask is a teeny tiny surveillance camera. However, it comes in the form of a USB plug and outlet. You (or anyone else) won’t notice the small camera lens on the front. But it actually records in 1080p HD. Not only that, but it also begins recording when it detects motion, so you don’t have to sift through hours of footage. What’s more, the USB charging feature is fully functional so none will be the wiser.
Creating the ideal smart home is no small feat. It’s also no small impact on your wallet. The Aria Smart Home Gadget collection is here to simplify it all. Featuring smart lights, LED strips, sensors, and more, this range is surprisingly affordable. Coming in sets, you can outfit your entire home on a fairly modest budget. Plus, you can manage them all through your smartphone or via Alexa and Google Assistant. Although they’re affordable, they certainly don’t look it. The Aria range features sleek lines and cool colors to only add to your interior aesthetic.

While some laptop manufacturers are all about giving you maximum screen size, VAIO is going for total portability. The display of the SX12 measures just 12.5 inches. But, what it lacks in screen size it more than makes up for in compactness. The laptop measures less than an inch thick. Plus, it weighs only two pounds. With these specs, you can truly take it anywhere you go. And, even though it has a super small footprint, the SX12 still has six different ports (which can’t be said for the MacBook). These include USB-C, SuperSpeed USB 3.0 and 3/1, HDMI, VGA, and more, giving you all the functionality you could ever need.
Samsung is always leading the way of innovation in the smartphone space. Although their foldable phone didn’t work out (or at least hasn’t yet), their Galaxy range is always expanding and improving. The Note10 and Note10+ are no exception to this trend, both of which feature an edge-to-edge display. This means it’s essentially free of bezels so the entire front of the device is accessible and usable. And, the smartphones also come in your choice of LTE or 5G, the latest in connectivity. If you’re not sure which to get, the Note10 measures 6.3 inches while the Note10+ is 6.8 inches (although this doesn’t really make the choice easier).
