Everyone loves a technological marvel when they see one. Every new gadget that hits the market captures the imagination of the masses.
Seeing a new appliance on display or even reading about an upcoming innovation can give you the jitters, and you immediately think, ‘Mine!’. Especially if it’s a home appliance that’s going to ease the struggles of everyday life, like (gasp) laundry.
But with all the new, revolutionary gadgets, like smart security systems and wifi door locks, it’s easy to get lost in the sea of technology.
To make things easier, you may want to shop online, where you’ll have access to a variety of choices. But before you check out appliances online, you should know what’s hot in the market.
Speaking of hot…
1. Deep Fried Without Oil?
There’s something about deep-fried food that makes us all drool. However, eating food dripping with oil isn’t exactly what you’d call a healthy lifestyle choice.
But that’s not why you eat a large pack of fries, is it?
No one considers the health impact of consuming fried food. So to save your body the trouble of flushing out excess oil, you should try using an airfryer.
Plug it in and you can fry, roast, bake, or grill your food without piling on the calories. It uses hot air to cook your food, so you can enjoy a delicious, healthy meal without harming your body.
The power bill isn’t going to put a hole in your pocket either – an airfryer usually consumes around 0.25 kilowatts to cook for 15 minutes.
2. Do Laundry From Anywhere In The World
You plan to do the laundry in the morning before leaving for work – but as usual, your electricity provider decides to make your life miserable and the power goes off.
Sure, you could settle for coming home to dirty laundry, or, you could get a wifi-enabled washing machine!
Players like LG, Samsung, and Whirlpool have helped in ways that your local dhobi could not. They’ve created smart washing machine models that you can connect to through wifi. So dump your clothes in the machine and head off to work.
If you’ve been diligent with your power bills, the electricity should be back soon, and you can remotely get your laundry done. This way, you come back to a clean set of clothes after work!
3. A High-Quality Viewing Experience
Wouldn’t it be awesome to take your TV to boring family dinners, where aunts and uncles seem way too interested in what you’re doing with your life?
With LG’s new OLED screen, you could probably distract them with the most realistic movie they’ve ever seen as you quietly slink away. LG is now designing an 18-inch high-definition screen that can be rolled up like a cylinder. Perfect! Simply roll it up, put it in your car and drive over to that family get-together.
The coolest part? The screen is just 1.57 mm in thickness. That’s approximately 1/10th of an inch!
The glass 4K OLED series screens pictures that are 4 times as vibrant and clear as normal HD televisions. Who wouldn’t want one in their living room?
4. Answer Your Door From Afar
Picture this: you’ve just sunk into your couch, a tub of popcorn on your lap, legs resting comfortably on a stool, watching the latest season of your favourite show.
Disaster strikes – the doorbell rings! You’d probably turn down the volume and pretend that no one’s home than sacrifice your comfortable position for a guest. Luckily, our tech-obsessed world is full of electrical appliances to help you solve your problems.
All you have to do is install a smart door lock, which connects to your phone via Bluetooth.
You’ll never be troubled by inconsiderate friends looking to disrupt your life when things are going smoothly. You can simply open the door with the touch of a button and continue watching your favourite show.
5. Get Smart While Securing Your Home
Now that you’ve seen how handy a smart door lock can be, why not go all the way and install a smart security system?
Your home is your castle, and the safer you feel at home, the more relaxed you can be.
A smart security system will alert you whenever a door or window is opened or closed. You can even connect your phone to the security camera and see what’s going on near your front door and in your house.
If you ever notice any suspicious activity while you’re away from home, you can simply call up a neighbour to check it out for you, or rush home to check on it yourself.
These are just a few of the man-made wonders that technology has given us. It’s easier than ever before to find an appliance that will give you more time to focus on important things in life, like reading a good book or discovering the secrets of the Universe!
