Ovie Smarterware MAKE YOURSELF FEEL EVEN MORE GUILTY ABOUT NOT EATING THE LEFTOVERS. Starter kit US$117 | ovie.life/store
2018 was the year of the smart home device and in December a crafty Kickstarter found the last remaining relic of the industrial era and made it palatable for humanity 2.0. Smarterware – the ingenious portmanteau ‘smart’ and ‘tupperware’ – is a smart tupperware container. While it maintains freshness, just like its predecessor, it’ll also send you daily reminders to eat the leftovers in your fridge before they go bad. Smarterware is promising to connect to Alexa to catalog foods and it knows how long each food-type should keep, so it’s not the most ridiculous device of 2018; but do we really need more guilt when avoiding leftovers?
Pivot Yoga wear SMART-PANTS TO HELP YOU WALK THE PATH TO ENLIGHTENMENT. US$99 + $19 per month | pivot.yoga
If you’re looking to get in with the techprenur crowd, but you don’t want anyone to see that you haven’t been meditating and yoga-ing your way to enlightenment for, like, your whole life bro, then your only option is to fork out for a private instructor and the required hush money to keep this ghastly secret under the yoga mat. Well at least that used to be your only option. In what’s been dubbed (by us) as the Uber of self-improvement, Pivot Yoga pants will allow you to pivot to DIY yoga faster than Tumbler’s transition to a wholesome platform. The Bluetooth pants include haptic feedback to make sure your positioning is the same as what’s shown in the app, so you can become a yogi pretzel in no time.
