Whether it be hobbies, entertainment, home, fitness or career, we've become accustom to buying stuff to help us in these areas. These latest gadgets add a technological spin to products we've used for years.


The Ambi Climate 2 Smart Air Conditioner Controller adjusts your air conditioner, and uses machine learning based on its AI Engine, live data and multiple sensors to remove the need of constant AC adjustments.

Supports Alexa, Google Home, and Siri. $130.

Mycroft brings the full power of A.I right to your home. It responds to spoken commands to control any smart device.
