One of the tech industry’s biggest annual events, the CES exhibition, has been underway in Las Vegas revealing the latest advances in technology. From the newest laptops to a striking colour-changing chameleon car, the scope of possibility for gadgets seems endless.
With this in mind, in this guide we’ll cover some of our favourite gadgets to enrich your lives this year, whether you’re at home, at work, in the classroom or on a long journey.
- At home
AI-powered household gadgets have been transforming the way we live. We can control our heating, our hi-fi and speakers, and more commodities through apps on our mobile phones or systems integrated within the house itself.
For example, SmartThings by Samsung connects to thousands of smart devices through any brand of phone, helping you adjust anything from your household lighting to the TV channel.
- For driving
We definitely don’t all need a colour-changing car, but there are plenty of gadgets to improve motoring coming this year. If Alexa has become a family favourite, you might be pleased to hear that you can now use Amazon’s virtual assistant on the road, too.
The Echo Auto can connect to the app on your phone and your car speakers, allowing you to make your usual voice commands while you drive.
- In the office
If you’ve started getting a bit too used to the comforts of working from home, an exciting new gadget to use at work could be a great incentive to get back in the office.
The ergonomic Microsoft Arc Bluetooth Mouse not only folds out to fit in your pocket, but when flattened, it automatically turns itself off to save battery. It’s available from most major retailers including Currys, so it could be worth checking if you’re eligible for the Currys NHS discount before you treat yourself.
- For your bike
If you’re getting out on two wheels this year, a gadget could be a useful investment to help you navigate your surroundings and monitor your progress.
Cycling gadgets appeared at CES 2022 and amongst top picks the new Shokz Openrun Pro bone conduction headphones stole the top spot. With 10 hours of music on a single charge, it’s a great choice for music on the move.
- For learning
It might be hard to motivate your children to get back in the classroom, but what about a fancy new gadget to nurture their learning at home too?
The Apple iPad Air makes a foolproof tablet if you’re looking for something for the whole family to enjoy, too. With a smart stylus, your child could use apps to improve their skills in maths, writing and even let their creative side flourish through digital art.
