The year 2018 seems to be all about improving communication between making the car feel more personal, smart home gadgets and putting screens everywhere imaginable. Here’s a look at some of the coolest gadgets in this year.
L’Oréal’s UV Sense is a battery-free sensor having the ability to detect ultraviolet exposure. It is small enough to be comfortably worn on your fingernail. The sensor includes a temperature sensor, a UV sensor, and an NFC antenna.
L’Oréal’s UV Sense can store data from up to three months and send the information to the accompanying app every time the user holds it close to his smartphone. The app keeps track of the user’s exposure levels and provides tips for managing the sun intake.
Although this sensor is designed for you to wear on your nail, L’Oréal will also release accessories so that you can wear it in different ways. The company worked with Yves Béhar, a designer and entrepreneur, on the product to resemble it the nail art rather than only a piece of wearable technology.
The Smart Display, Lenovo’s Google Assistant-powered, feels like a sleeker, more attractive than Amazon Echo Show.
The same as Amazon’s touchscreen-enabled Echo, Lenovo Smart Display is a computer which is voice-activated with a screen to display supplementary information. For example, if you ask Google for restaurant recommendations, the Smart Display will pull up information about nearby eateries for you.
However, Lenovo’s Smart Display has more three key advantages than the Echo Show: it includes a larger screen, it can play YouTube videos, and it has a more polished design.
Honda’s new concept robots designed to serve different functions are both cute and useful.
For example, Honda’s Robot 3E-A18 is a social empathy robot. According to the company, it’s meant to represent the idea that robots can support human-beings by providing a sense of understanding and compassion. Comparatively, Honda’s 3E-B18 is a chair concept robot, while its 3E-C18 contains cargo space for transporting materials.
