As 2022 comes to an end, we are looking towards 2023. In this month’s blog post, we will look at some new and fun technologies that will be available to us in the upcoming year. Follow along as we take a look at a few new gadgets.
Ulla Smart Hydration Reminder
I will be the first person to admit that I need to stop drinking soda and drink more water, but the problem is that when I have glass or bottle of water I forget to drink it and end up pouring it out at the end of the day. The answer to this problem is the Ulla Smart Hydration Reminder. This device reminds you to hydrate if you forget. It blinks before dehydration kicks in and it tracks when you drink. This little device will work with bottles or glasses of any shape, size, and material. It simply fits around the bottle and then blinks at lease once an hour to remind you to drink. It has sensors to know if you are in the room with the bottle so that it doesn’t blink when you’ve stepped out of the room for, say, a meeting. You can find more information here.

This item is so new that it’s still in the Kickstarter phase. This is one that I’m going to keep my eye on as I think it is so cool. WAINLUX Z5 is a compact laser cutting and engraving machine designed for the whole family! It’s compact enough to take wherever life takes you – unlike traditional bulky laser machines. This handheld and all-metal laser engraving powerhouse boasts dual built-in light sources, promising pro-grade engraving that’s easy enough for anyone to use.

This item isn’t a high-tech gadget, but for a DIYer like myself I found it too cool to not include on the list. If you’ve ever tried to paint anything around your house that required something to be masked off and found yourself either using way too much tape or way too little and had to cut more and then try to get a perfect corner taped so that you got a nice clean line you know the struggle is real. The Masking Master is an ingeniously designed hand tool that allows you to do any masking job in and around the house much faster, more accurately and more ergonomically. With this tool you get perfect alignment and length. It’s five times faster and safer and it gives you more professional results. The Masking Master is applicable for a wide variety of jobs in and around the house such as painting, caulking, plastering, and spraying. Find more information here.
