Since we all love gadgets and we like to keep up with the latest IT news, we want to offer you a review of the weirdest 2014 gadgets that use USB available on the market. At the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show, held in Las Vegas, a wide range of strange – to the say the least – gadgets were presented. Here are some of the gadgets that caught our attention.
ChefJet 3D Printer
This gadget, launched by 3D Systems Corporation, is an ultramodern candy maker, mainly meant to produce 3D, geometric-shaped sugary treats. The gadget is delivered with several recipes and flavours, such as cherry, vanilla, mint, chocolate, sour apple, or watermelon. Fancy some sweets?
Personal thermal imaging device
With the FLIR ONE gadget, you will no longer need the Ghostbusters to spot outer-space visitors. Since it is a thermal and visual camera, this gadget is able to scan heat signatures.
At first, there were phones. We evolved…and developed smartphones. At first, there were beds. So what’s next? Yes, you got it right: smart-beds! The guilty producer is Sleep Number and it aims at tracking our sleeping activity. Controlled by vocal commands, smart-beds can be made softer or firmer, and their elevation can be easily modified. Moreover, the bed records data about our body movements and sends it to a tablet. Once the data is processed, the bed can automatically change its firmness, thus ensuring a blissful rest. According to the manufacturer, the bed is even able to silence snoring. Not enough for you? How about a voice-controlled massage?
The iGrow was invented to meet the needs of those who are suffering from hair loss. Or at least this is what Apira Science Inc. claims. With LED lights and 51 lasers, this gadget is expected to stimulate hair growth. In order to obtain the best results, the manufacturer advises customers to wear this helmet during 6 months, for at least 20 minutes every single day. However, no scientific proofs support this claim.
3D viewer for iPhone
Looking like a pair of regular binoculars, the Poppy 3D gadget allows you to watch 3D videos when using your iPhone. If you place your iPhone in a special slot, on top of this gadget, it will split images by using two mirrors. This way, one eye will see an image, while the other will see a different one. Your brain is expected to fuse these images so that the video appears in 3D.
Smartphone stun gun
Produced by Yellow Jacket, this amazing case is able to simultaneously electrocute a potential attacker with no less than 650,000 volts, and completely recharge your iPhone. The case, which perfectly fits both iPhone 5/5s and iPhone 4/4S, is available in various colours and it even comes with a removable stun gun pack.
Have you tried any of these gadgets? We’d love to hear your thoughts about them!
