4 must-have gadgets in 2017
We are so overwhelmed with technology these days that it can be difficult to figure out where best to spend your money. Useful or not, you can almost guarantee that there is some kind of gadget for almost every aspect of your life.
The ideal gadget should be fun or functional — or both! With that in mind, we have chosen our four favourite gadgets to watch out for in 2017.
SteelSeries Arctis Gaming Headphones
If you’re into gaming, investing in a pair of Arctis headphones is probably the best thing you could do this year. The new collection from SteelSeries is made up of three different headsets: 3, 5 and 7. Offering ultimate comfort and unbeatable sound quality, each headset also comes with an ultra-sensitive microphone, we think you’ll agree that this is the perfect game-enhancing gadget. In addition to all this, SteelSeries have partnered with a number of designers and artists, creating accessories that can help you customise the headphones to match your personal style.
Polaroid ZIP Mobile Printer
Whether you like snapping selfies on holiday or capturing important moments such as birthdays and weddings, it’s fair to say that having actual prints of photographs seems somewhat of a novelty these days. If you’re feeling nostalgic and fancy having some hardcopies of your photos, the Polaroid ZIP Mobile Printer could be just what you’re looking for. Compatible with Android and iOS, this smart gadget allows you to print your pics directly from your phone — no ink needed! It’s small, sleek, and has a rechargeable battery, meaning you can take it just about anywhere.
Wacom Bamboo Notepad
For the creative types out there, the Wacom Bamboo Notepad series is a fantastic tool to have. If you can’t get used to making handwritten notes or drawings on a tablet, but enjoy the convenience of having your creations in digital format, one of these notepads will provide the perfect solution. You can scribble away to your heart’s content using a pen and paper (old school, right?), before capturing your doodles at the press of a button and having them sent straight for your smart device. You can then organise, edit and share them as much as you like.
Ever wonder what you’re going to have for dinner when you’re out of the house? It happens to us all; you’ll think of something to cook, but you won’t be sure if you have all of the ingredients at home. The Smarter FridgeCam is here to save the day! Essentially, it’s a wireless camera that fits inside your fridge and lets you have a look at what’s in there using an app. Not only this, but the FridgeCam can track expiry dates and suggest recipes based on the food you have in.
