The iPhone. Flat screen TVs. Smart home technology. Electric cars. Once upon a time, not too long ago, these were a few of the tech inventions and gadgets we couldn’t wait to get our hands on.
Even more cool and amazing stuff is headed our way in 2022 — in fact, some of it is already available right now. Here are a few of our favourites:
The unfolding TV: Want a home theatre experience in your living room but not all the time? The C Seed M1 Unfolding TV unfolds like an envelope and folds back, hidden under your floor, with the push of a button. You may want to file this one under “nice to have/for the person who has everything” because this Lamborghini of TVs will run you a cool $400,000.
Outside car safe: At the other end of the affordability and technology spectrum, the HitchSafe Key Vault is a convenient place to hide your keys, credit cards and other valuables under your car and out of sight.
Audio sunglasses: If you’re worried about earbuds falling out while you’re jogging or not being able to hear your surroundings when you need to, Bose audio sunglasses are a lightweight, innovative and stylish solution that let you hear the music without blocking out the great outdoors.
SMART tires: Using technology developed by NASA for future Mars Rover missions, these space age and eco-friendly bicycle tires are airless, super-elastic and never go flat – plus they’re lightweight and durable. Apparently, the company is still working out some kinks but expect these flat-proof tires to hit the market sometime next year.
Smart suitcases: As most of us get set to travel around the country and the globe like we did pre-pandemic, this high-tech suitcase promises to make the experience more convenient – and way cooler. Bluetooth-enabled with embedded GPS, this smart suitcase follows you around – no more lugging around heavy luggage plus it’s less likely to get lost. And a built-in scale ensures you’ll never have to worry about over-packing.
