High tech gadgets are everywhere, in our bathrooms, kitchens and, of course, our living rooms. But with so many products to choose from, it can sometimes be hard to prioritize. Not to worry. Here we are going to discuss some of the most incredible gadgets on the market right now, ideal for any living room setup.

When personal home assistants, like Amazon Echo, first came out, they could perform about 1,000 different commands. But in just a few short years, they’ve expanded their repertoire dramatically. Google Home, the search giant’s home assistant product, will do all sorts of things, from ordering your groceries to teaching your children maths. It’ll also have creepy conversations with other home assistant products all by itself if you let it.

Customizable Music Box

Technology is fast approaching the point where it’s able to read your mood and respond accordingly. That’s precisely the goal behind customizable music boxes, like Prism. The music gadget plays different songs depending on how it thinks you’re feeling. Of course, Prism can’t “think” as such, but it does do an outstanding job of finding the right song for the moment. If you love listening to music, but don’t want to go to the effort of finding the right track, then products like these make a big difference in your living room.

Smart Projectors

If you pay for a cable TV service, you want to get the best out of it. Well, now technology companies are looking at ways to boost all your small-screen experiences. Smart projections, like those from Lightform, not only display images on walls but also contain special sensors will allow them to project on irregular objects too. Many people struggle to find big, uncluttered wall space for projected images, and so don’t bother with projectors at all. But smart projectors change the dynamic, by periodically scanning a room and then adjusting the way they project so that it looks good, no matter what clutter might be in the way. With a projector, you can enjoy an immersive experience on a grand scale. It’s great for TV and gaming.

Smart Sockets

Not all of your electronics are smart and can be wired up to an app. But that’s okay, thanks to smart sockets.

Smart sockets work on a straightforward concept. The plug connects wirelessly to the internet, providing users with control from their devices. If you get into bed and then realize that you’ve left the TV on in the living room, you don’t have to go back down and switch it off again. Instead, you just turn off the smart socket from your app. Smart outlets also provide you with other information, such as the amount of electricity your appliances use.

Slimline Fireplace

Eco-conscious people love slimline fireplaces, thanks to the fact that they often run on bioethanol. Slimline fireplaces don’t require any upgrades to the existing hearth – most are small enough to fit in just about any setup. There’s no need for a chimney either since ethanol burns without smoke.
