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.
