The scarf is connected with the wearer smartphone via Bluetooth. It continuously measures the quality of ambient air and sends notification to the wearer’s smartphone when they enter polluted vicinity, suggesting them to use the scarf to cover their nose and mouth. Isn’t that cool idea?

A pair of virtual reality shoes that let the user feel textures underfoot has been unveiled by the Japanese gadget-maker, Cerevo. The VR shoes allow you to use feet to interact with what you see in virtual Reality. The shoes give tactile feedback and the vibrations to the wearer to give them a sense of walking on the virtual surface they see in front of them. The virtual headsets are used to see the virtual images and the shoes allows the wearer to get the sense as in they are walking on the virtual surface they are seeing.
7. Ring Outdoor Security System
Ring has creatively designed a product by putting Wi-Fi security cameras in places where they are actually needed and useful. The first product by Ring was a video doorbell that allows the user to respond to the visitors, or spot the snoopers using a smartphone. Now the Ring has designed a motion-activated outdoor floodlight using the smart technique. There is as HD camera and IR (Infra-Red) sensor capable of detecting motion, day or night. When the sensor senses something going on by, say, on the roadside, it can stream video to the cloud. You can get the alert on your phone instantly.

8. Nemonic Printer
It’s a small printer designed especially for your sticky notes! We all love sticky notes, don’t we? Yes, but feel lazy to write on paper? Yep! Well that’s what the Nemonic printer does for you. Created by Samsung Spin-off Mangoslab, the Nemonic printer prints the sticky notes for you. For that pair your iPhone or your Android phone with the printer via Bluetooth, download the app, write your note or add a photo to it and hit print! That’s it, your sticky note is ready! It uses the thermal printing tech, means there is no ink inside the printer instead the ink is on the paper. While you can’t use conventional Post-it notes, sadly, the paper will cost the same two cents a sheet. The printer is expected later this year to hit the market.
