    36 Tech Gadgets That Prove We're Living In The Future

    Let's all take a moment to appreciate the wonders of video calling โ€” and all these products.

Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them.

    1. A wireless charging pad that'll work with your iPhone 11, 11 Pro, 11 Pro Max, XS Max, X, Samsung Galaxy Note 10, Note 10+, S10+, S9, AirPods Pro, and a variety of other devices โ€” all you have to do is place your phone down on it!


    Promising review: "I bought three of these wireless charging pads for a Samsung Galaxy Note 8, Samsung Galaxy S8, and an iPhone 8 based on the reviews. Let me tell you, I was not disappointed! The wireless charging pad worked flawlessly for all three phones and for the price it is a bargain compared to other brands. The biggest draw for me was that the simple LED light, which sits on the front of the pad, is not overwhelmingly bright and does not draw attention to it. Once the phone is fully charged the light goes off so it does not constantly charge the phone for no reason. I highly recommend getting the wireless charging pad and it is well worth the asking price." โ€”Gabby C

    2. An awesome VEHHE Electric Rechargeable USB Candle Lighter โ€“ it's windproof, flexible, and has an LED screen to let you know how much battery life is left.

    @lindsayroggenbuck / Via, Amazon

    Promising review: "I love this little gadget. Iโ€™m so tired of wasting my money on throw-away things like lighters and I wanted a more sustainable product to reduce the waste I produce. I donโ€™t know how hot this gets, Iโ€™m not going to touch the little spark it produces but it lights my candles and fires without me having to get too close to the flame and burning myself. The charge lasts pretty long and it charges really fast. The blue lights indicate how much charge is remaining making it easy to tell if it needs a charge or not. Portable and the flexible tip makes it easy to get into some of those bigger candles that you canโ€™t reach." โ€”Sara Ursitti

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in five colors).

    3. A third-generation Echo Dot โ€” a voice-controlled device you can use to play music, make calls, send and receive text messages, provide information, read the news, set alarms, read audiobooks, control your TV, and so much more.

    The Echo Dot in sandstone

    Promising review: "I absolutely love it! Bought to use as a radio/ambient noise device as I fall asleep, but now realize the capabilities FAR exceeded what I initially purchased it for, so I also use it as an alarm clock, Bluetooth speaker for my iPad, personal assistant ('Alexa, add milk to my shopping list'), Amazon Music speaker (which I never used until buying this). The sound quality is really good, especially considering its small size and relatively budget-friendly price. I definitely recommend this to anyone, and if youโ€™re a Prime member... WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR! Donโ€™t even 'add to cart,' just click 'buy now' and watch your life get simpler." โ€”Dave S

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99 (available in four colors).

    4. A splurge-worthy Philips SmartSleep Wake-up alarm clock that simulates the sunrise, so waking up (at any time) feels totally natural โ€” because let's be real, these days, time is just a concept.


    Promising review: "This thing is a game-changer! I got it because I got tired of being owned by my phone. It used to be the last thing I checked before going to bed, and the first thing I would check in the morning. No more! Now I can leave the phone charging across the room (or in a handbag even. Who cares?) I can set this for the 'sun to set' at 15, 30, 45, or 60 minutes later. So I set it, and I get in bed and read a book for an hour. Then the 'sun goes down' gradually, and I go to bed. Eight hours later, the 'sun' starts coming up gradually. So gradually, that at the beginning, you don't even notice. And you can set sounds in addition to the 'sunrise' effect: birds chirping, ocean waves, classical music, or FM radio (although why on earth would you choose FM radio?). You can set two different wake-up 'alarms'. It doesn't even feel right to call them alarms, because it's not obnoxious or loud. It doesn't jolt you awake. You wake up gradually. This thing is perfect. I'm reading more, sleeping a lot better, and I don't even remember anymore to grab my phone to check social media in the mornings. In fact, sometimes I'll be at the office, and it'll be noon before I realize I left my phone in the car. Drop the dependency on cell phones. It's ridiculous. We're like that movie, Wall-E. Get this and improve your life and your quality of sleep." โ€”Mimi 5000

    Get it from Amazon for $79.95.

    5. An indoor wireless Wyze smart camera with HD, real-time live stream capabilities, two-way audio, motion/sound recording (it'll automatically record a 12-second video clip when motion or sound is detected and saves that video to the cloud for 14-days, for free), mobile push notifications to alert you when something is detected, night vision, Alexa and Google Assistant capabilities, and over 77,000 5-star reviews on Amazon. SEVENTY-SEVEN. THOUSAND.


    Promising review: "My husband and I lost everything we owned in an apartment fire earlier this year. We received our first Wyze cam as a housewarming gift due to its smoke detector alert feature. We loved it so much that we bought another! We took a vacation to Ireland last month and it made it much easier to be away from home because we could check in on our cat any time we wanted. Pros: Night vision, easy setup, adjustable motion detection sensitivity, picture quality. Cons: Sound quality isnโ€™t perfect." โ€”Meaghan

    Get it from Amazon for $25.98.

    6. An awesome Scoop That II, an ice cream scooper that softens โ€” but doesn't melt โ€” your favorite dessert, making scooping a breeze.

    A person scooping into ice cream with the Scoop That II

    No more fights with Ben or Jerry, just scoops of ice cream in your mouth.

    Promising review: "I hate hard ice cream, I mean ruin-my-day-take-it-out-on-people hate it. Just makes me scream internally! I treat myself and the Universe suddenly decides to notice me and punish me with the mild inconvenience. Not anymore! Take that fate! This cuts into hard ice cream easily and is a joy to use." โ€”Paul Bunch

    Get it on Amazon for $39.54.

    7. A clip-on cellphone ring light to help take your selfie game to a whole new level.


    Promising review: "Are you kidding me?? This thing is incredible!! I never do reviews but hot damn!! This is too good not to talk about. Very solid product and fast shipping! I might need to order another. Total game-changer." โ€”tiaramoney

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

    8. An Amazon Fire TV Stick so you can stream all your favorites from the comfort of their sofa โ€” no cords, no bulky device just a USB looking device you stick to the back of your TV.

    The Amazon Fire TV Stick

    Promising review: "For anyone wanting to turn an otherwise ~dead~ TV into something usable without a direct cable connection, and has WiFi in their home, this stick is a wonder. It has all the conveniences of your Amazon Prime account built into it with free movies and apps. I personally bought this for a TV we had sitting around that wasn't being used. I hooked it up inside of my mom's room where she now enjoys watching movies regularly at night. She absolutely loved it, and it makes a great gift option too for a family or friend who's into entertainment. Even without being an Amazon Prime member you can get a great value out of this device with all the free apps it comes with. I'd highly recommend this powerful streaming stick to anyone who wants to add a fully workable TV, without the costs of cable, to their own bedroom or guests' room they may have inside the house." โ€”Lolifoxer

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99.

    9. A pair of wireless Bluetooth earbuds for the high-resolution sound your favorite music deserves.


    Promising review: "My search for my everyday earbud is over. I've tried three different ones (more expensive than this) and just settled with one of those because I got tired of searching. Until I came across a review on YT for these. Due to the reasonable price, I decided to try it. That turned out to be the best purchase I made. They deliver great sound for the price. When I want to zone out, it gives me the right loudness and a little bit more. Next is comfort โ€” eventually you won't even notice you're wearing them. They fit snugly in my ears. I'm getting another pair for my sister as a gift this Christmas. Thank you for making quality items at a reasonable price. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ for you guys! Another happy camper here guys. Try it and you'll love it!" โ€”PoiNtBreAk Dennis

    Get them from Amazon for $29.99. Check out this waterproof version too.

    10. An amazing Oster HeatSoft Hand Mixer that heats up ever so slightly, making it easier for you to break down those harder ingredients.

    A person using the Oster HeatSoft Hand Mixer

    Promising review: "I was skeptical when I got this mixer. Could it be worth it? Yes, yes it can. Does the butter melt 12 times faster? Not that I could tell but it is noticeably faster. The mixer is easy to hold, had a large variety of mixing tools included. Very strong but not super heavy, feels solid. All the unit's parts, including the mixer itself, fit in an included clear storage container that locks in good. No more hunting in drawers for all the mixing tools anymore!" โ€”pete c

    Get it from Amazon for $62.99.

    11. A pack of TP-Link Kasa Smart Plugs with access to the Kasa app that can act as a remote control โ€” plus, it has voice control so you can access anything plugged in with your Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant.

    @toponlinefinds / Via, Amazon

    Promising review: "I've been using both for about 3.5 months now. They keep a clear concise signal and always work when I need them. Setup was easy and the directions are clear. They are a little on the big side as they fit the outlet but they work really well. I have both Kasa and WeMo and personally, I like the Kasa brand better because of the app, easy setup, and connection that's reliable. I also have the Kasa light switches and they update them frequently so they always work well. Never had any issues with Kasa. I'm thankful and appreciative cuz who has time for that. They work well for anything with a manual switch that can be left on and plugged back in without you have to use the switch to turn it on again. I have lamps in all my rooms and fans in the summer to use them with. They work great for Christmas lights and inside the chicken coup to turn on the heat lamps on a schedule or remotely. I will eventually find more uses, I'm sure. I will be buying at least three more thanks to the quality and price." โ€”ya think

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $14.99 (for two).

    12. A voice- or phone-controlled Nest thermostat that'll learn your preferences based on the time of day and season and make sure your home is always the perfect temperature and you guys aren't playing out the Great War of the Thermostat.


    Promising review: "I've never had a smart thermostat before, so I have nothing to compare it to. But this Nest device is amazing. Even better, the installation instructions are CLEAR and EASY to understand! There are interactive pictures and a text-based set of instructions online that take you through each step, and troubleshoot along the way. The thermostat works with my Google Mini and of course the Nest app. You can program what times you want the house to be at which temp and it will either start heating/cooling at that time, or you can set it to start before then, so it's nice and comfy when you get home. It has features for dealing with humidity and can even learn your temp preferences and adjust accordingly." โ€”L Williams

    Get it from Amazon for $218.99+ (available in seven colors).

    13. A USB-powered LED light strip to bring the perfect amount of ambient lighting to your TV-watching experience.


    Promising review: "Easy to install. Lights provide ample lighting; USB allows lights to be a stand-alone fixture without tying up another wall socket. The USB interface also acts to turn the lights on and off with the TV. Backlighting also seems to make the screen seem sharper." โ€”Shaun

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in sizes Sโ€“XXL).

    14. A portable Bluetooth speaker designed with a hands-free function, built-in mic, and enhanced bass โ€” since you're all about that bass.

    The speaker in pink

    Promising review: "I. Love. This. Speaker!! First of all it is GORGEOUS! I got it in the rose gold, which is the same as my iPhone, and it is soo cute! It has a matte finish, a very pleasant and satisfying shape, large touch power-on, volume, and pairing-up buttons on the underside, and an adorable blue light ring around the base that helps it communicate with my Echo Dot (which I bought it specifically to pair with). Pairing the two was pretty easy and this is coming from a non-tech-minded person. The sound...the SOUND is incredible!! It is so small and portable, so delicious to look at, and plays music so well that I would not hesitate to get more as gifts, especially for the price." โ€”Helene N.

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in black and pink).

    15. A smart end table designed with a Bluetooth speaker, wireless charging surface, and USB plug โ€” imagine never waking up and realizing you forgot to plug in your phone!


    Promising review: "The sound quality is great for the normal consumer. An Audio Engineer may point out some differences. I love the fact that it has Bluetooth capabilities and wireless charging. The wireless charging only charged my phone a little and not 100%. I had to remove it from the charging location then place it back on to continue charging." โ€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $119.99 (available in two colors).

    There's also this version with a built-in lamp!

    16. A reliable Mikikin Fast-Charging Car Phone Holder to both hold and charge your phone without the need of any cords. It also has an automatic clamp that'll hold your phone snugly so you don't ever have to worry about it falling.

    @toponlinefinds / Via, Amazon

    It clips onto your air vent and works with iPhone X/XR/Xs/Xs Max/8/8 Plus, Samsung S6/S7/S8/S9 Edge+, Note 7/Note 8, and many other brands.

    Promising review: "It surprised me when I put it in my car โ€” it automatically opens and closes to hold my phone. That's super cool! I was just looking for a phone holder but this is even better โ€” at the same time, I can charge my phone. Very good and very sturdy, highly recommend." โ€”mike

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99.

    17. A smartphone-controlled LED bulb you can dim, change colors, and set to a timer so that it wakes you up like the morning sun โ€” even if your wake-up time is before said sun rises.

    A person using their cellphone to control the light color

    Promising review: "Does everything it advertises. I use it in my bedroom for soft lighting to wake up to and go to sleep to. I use the sunrise timer, which really does help me wake up in the morning. Played with it a bit when we first got it and loved the other aspects of it as well โ€” all the colors, the fade from one color to the next, etc. And the programming is in the bulb, not stored on the cell phone (once it's programmed, you don't have to keep it connected to the cell phone)." โ€”M. Rinehart

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $19.99 (available in 60-watt versions).

    18. A Bluetooth Tile tracker you can attach to anything you tend to lose โ€” anything., Amazon

    Promising review: "Just fantastic for finding my deaf 7-pound dog who doesn't come when I call, of course!" โ€”Iher

    Get it from Amazon for $18.70.

    19. A super sleek, lightweight, shower-safe, and Bluetooth enabled Quip toothbrush designed with an app to help you monitor and track your oral health. It also uses sensitive sonic vibrations to help you get the best teeth brushing ever โ€” it has a built-in timer and quadrant pulses so it cleans everything evenly.

    20. A UV light portable cellphone sanitizer with 360-degree circulation to help you kill 99.9% of all the gross germs on your, watches, credit cards, and keys. Knees and toes.

    @toponlinefinds / Via, Amazon

    It connects with a USB cable. Just close the lid after putting your items in the box, a green light flashes while it disinfects, and in three to five minutes it's all done.

    Promising review: "We didnโ€™t know the machine speaks when you sanitize or use the oils in it. Definitely much easier to clean phones, watches, keys, etc. Large enough to clean a wallet also." โ€”Angie Tiger

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    21. A braided leather USB bracelet designed to convert into a charging cord so you're never left powerless.


    Promising review: "I usually have every sort of cable that I could possibly need when I'm at work, but I don't usually carry one on my person when I'm elsewhere. It looks sharp and isn't obviously a cable, but it's always available should you need it. It's compatible with Apple Carplay, and when plugged into a computer it will function like a default Apple cable. I am incredibly happy with it and would recommend it to anyone who might ask." โ€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in seven colors).

    22. An LED flame speaker to give you that relaxing I-just-lit-a-candle feeling and soft sound you might need before bedtime but don't want to light your whole house on fire.

    A person sleeping next to the flame speaker

    Promising review: "This is an amazing little decor item! The sound from the speaker is loud and clear. The flameless candle is so true to life! It fools everybody who sees it. The best part about this product is the battery life. I use this on my deck every night and it lasts days without needing to be charged. Great product!!!" โ€”Allysen Storch

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    23. A self-charging Eufy BoostIQ RoboVac Super-Thin Vacuum Cleaner designed to be super quiet and have an increased suction power, which it turns on when it senses that extra vacuuming strength is needed.

    Amazon, @rebekkablue / Via

    It also vacuums for up to 100 minutes on hardwood floors with consistent, powerful suction at a volume no louder than an operating microwave. It comes with a remote control (two AAA batteries included), charging base, AC power adapter, cleaning tool, an extra set of high-performance filters, four side brushes, five cable ties, a welcome guide, and a 12-month warranty.

    Promising review: "The Eufy comes in at half the cost of the four-year-old Roomba that we previously used โ€” out of the box, after a full night's charge, it worked flawlessly. The remote is easy to use and after a two-minute look-over of the manual, the thing just WORKS. Roomba would basically never make it back on the charger, it would push it all over our kitchen but never actually park itself correctly. The Eufy did it on the first attempt and has done it daily (unless it gets stuck somewhere) ever since. The Eufy is much slimmer than the Roomba so it is able to navigate some areas that were previously left untouched. The dust bin is always full or near full when we get home and check it, so it definitely is doing its job trying to keep up with our two large dogs and their fur." โ€”Garrett

    Get it from Amazon for $219.99 (available in two colors)

    24. A smart power strip that'll let you control up to six devices using your voice or phone!

    The power strip with a laptop and cell phone plugged in

    Promising review: "I don't use the TP-Link (Kasa) app (except for setup) so I'm not super interested in the power usage info, but for Google Home, this is a must-have for that room where you have several things plugged into a power strip that is suited for automation. Each outlet can be turned on/off manually OR via the Kasa app/Google Home. Super easy to set up (Kasa App is pretty good) and adding to Google Home was a snap. I know I have three devices plugged into this smart power strip configured for Google Home and two devices just using power. I could not be happier with the quality and reliability of the TP-Link smart outlets/power strips that I've purchased (so far I have seven). Highly recommend this item." โ€”Brian

    Get it from Amazon for $53.99.

    25. A Wi-Fi range extender so you can make the most out of your internet when you're curled up in bed binge-watching The Office for the 80th time.

    The TP-Link AC750 Wifi Range Extender

    Promising review: "I needed this to get a better signal in the upstairs master bedroom but had no idea what I was doing. Read all the reviews and finally decided to give this a try. Just plugged it in, pressed a button on my router, and presto! It was done! If your router doesn't have that button, there are easy, step-by-step directions. Nothing to it. Moved the repeater upstairs to the hallway, which is quite a distance from my router, and had a full-strength Wi-Fi connection for the bedroom! It was easy and the price was certainly good." โ€”Spyoki

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in three versions).

    26. A slim and waterproof fitness tracker designed to be a watch, pedometer, and a calorie and sleep monitor., Amazon

    Promising review: "I love this tracker! I have a Fitbit and now I also have this tracker and I greatly prefer this one. The design is much slimmer and the charging capability is so convenient! To charge it all I have to do is slip off the strap on one side and plug the center screen into a regular cell phone charger. I have lost and replaced my strangely shaped Fitbit chargers so many times already, and now that I have this tracker โ€” I will never have to replace a charging cord again. The app is easy to use and when I turn off Bluetooth to preserve the battery and then turn it back on later that night, all the data syncs seamlessly โ€” no issues whatsoever! The slim design is also much more attractive. The sizing options are great because the tracker fits my very small wrists with no issues, and it also fits my large-framed husband's wrists!" โ€”Katie T

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in three colors).

    27. A Pulse Personal Lube and Massage Oil Warming Dispenser that automatically dispenses warm lube without even the touch of a button โ€” making it especially great for anyone with limited mobility.


    Promising review: "WOW! We've come a long way baby! The warmth is amazing! Couldn't imagine ever going back to a cold, messy, sticky experience in bed. Girls, treat yourself or let your partner know about will change your life." โ€”Stacey12

    Get the Warmer for $199 (available in two colors) and the six-pack of Aloe-ahh Silicone-based Personal Lubricant for $29.95 from Nordstrom.

    28. A Wi-Fiโ€“enabled light switch you can control from your phone, Alexa, or Google Assistant, totally eliminating the need to get out of bed to turn off the lights when you're already all cozy.


    Promising review: "I bought this switch for the bedroom so that my fiancรฉ and I wouldn't have to get out of bed to turn off the overhead lights. Once I figured out that the directions for installation were on the Kasa App I was able to easily wire it into our switch box. Setting it up to work with our Amazon Alexa units was also very easy. I also watched a YouTube video that demonstrated the installation." โ€”Michael P. McDonnell

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    29. A beautiful and minimalistic LENIVER LED Spiral Desk Lamp designed with three dimmable and adjustable light shades (warm light, white light, natural light) and a color temperature range from 3,000 to 6,500 Kelvin.

    Amazon, @simplysalfinds / Via

    Promising review: "I love this lamp. The look is very unique yet not too 'trendy' which is what I personally prefer. The fact that you can adjust the brightness and the color of the lamp is also a really great feature." โ€”Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $35.99+ (available in two colors).

    30. A smart cover and mattress that'll track your sleep patterns, act as an alarm clock, heat up or cool down depending on your preferences, and work with your Amazon Alexa.

    The Eight cooling and heating mattress

    Get it from Eight starting at $995+ (available in four sizes).

    31. A super fancy and state-of-the-art Samsung 55-inch 4K Smart TV for a high def smart TV that looks like a piece of art โ€” literally! It has a quantum processor and 100% color volume with quantum dots that produce over a billion shades of color so you can display actual artwork, and it has customizable frames that stick on with magnets for a totally sleek look.

    Amazon, @lollyjaneblog / Via

    Promising review: "We were very excited to purchase this, we have been holding off for a couple of years. When the new 2020 model came out we decided to finally bite the bullet. It does look pretty much exactly like my brother's 2018 model. Pros: Looks good on the wall, pretty believable as a picture frame. One Connect box is pretty slick, provided you have space for it. I like that I can transfer pictures from a flash drive directly to the TV and it saves them. I like Samsung's app layout. I LOVE that I can airplay from my iPhone/Mac. It shuts off automatically if it doesnโ€™t sense anyone in the room, seems to work well. Easy to mount. Fun browsing pictures and having a different piece of art every day. Cons: The picture washes out immediately when turning to an angle. Overall picture quality is just fine. Canโ€™t tell the difference between this one and the 2018 model. Overall itโ€™s a fun TV because it looks like a picture frame." โ€”jallove7

    Get it from Amazon for $1,442.09+ (available in four frames).

    32. An LED essential oil diffuser aromatherapy machine so you can fill your space with a lovely and relaxing fragrance it deserves.

    The aromatherapy machine

    Promising review: "First-time diffuser user but I know aromatherapy works. I had been using candles and pillow/linen spray to help me sleep better due to chronic pain. Spray only lasts a short duration and I am worried to leave the candles burning while I'm sleeping. I read the review and this seems like what I need to get the aromatherapy during the night without the risk of burning down my home. I like the color-changing feature too. It is soothing to look at and doubles as a night light for me. I used the intermittent setting so it would last longer. Easy to operate, essential oils not included but there are a ton of choices out there." โ€”WM in Denver

    Get it from Amazon for $13.59+ (available in five colors).

    33. A very cool Nixplay Smart Digital Picture Frame that lets you share photos through their app so you can create different albums and get photos from everyone in your household.

    The frame and a phone showing the app where you can create albums

    Promising review: "Beautifully packaged, kinda like an Apple product. VERY easy setup. Added two friends via app, now I'm receiving photos from across the county during social distancing! A must-have." โ€”NHA4wine

    Get it from Amazon for $173.09+ (available in four sizes and in three finishes).

    34. A self-regulating Dyson Corrale Straightener designed with flexing manganese copper plates that shape around your hair and provide extra control so you use less heat while reducing frizz โ€” plus, it's cord-free for easy use literally everywhere.


    It also has intelligent heat control that regulates the temperature of the plates 100 times a second, ensuring you never exceed your chosen temperature.

    Promising review: "I have bought every styling tool out there, some worked really well. Once I bought the Dyson hairdryer and Airwrap I was hooked. So, of course, when the straightener came out, I HAD to have it. Amazing doesnโ€™t give this straightener the credit it deserves. I AM OBSESSED WITH EVERY DYSON HAIR PRODUCT!!!" โ€”Angel1980

    Check out our full review of the Dyson Corrale straightener.

    Get it from Nordstrom for $499.

    35. An investment-worthy Lululemon MIRROR โ€” a complete home gym that attaches to your wall. With barely any space, it can turn any area of your home into a cardio class, a yoga studio, a boxing ring โ€” there are 50+ genres of workouts for you to choose from. And when it's not in use, it just looks like a lovely mirror in your home.


    The MIRROR comes with a low profile and adaptable wall mount that works with all wall types, as well as a carbon steel leaner stand. To control your MIRROR you can use the MIRROR companion app on your iOS or Android device. The app lets you pair your accessories, pick your music, customize your workouts, track your progress, and more.

    Get it from Lululemon for $1,495 (right now, you can save $250 with code FEB21).

    36. And a pair of Amazon's Echo Frames equipped with Alexa. You can make calls, set reminders, listen to podcasts, and even control your smart home devices using these bad boys. They have open-ear audio which projects the sound directly to your ears so other people can't hear you and they will adjust the volume based on the noise level of your environment.

    A person wearing the Echo Frames

    The frames themselves are lightweight, splash-resistant, and compatible with most prescription lenses.

    Promising review: "I LOVE these glasses! I got them on a Monday and I scheduled a LensCrafters appointment online the very next day. By 4 p.m. on Tuesday, I had new progressive prescription lenses in them. I would love to get a set and put sunglasses lenses in them too. They were super easy to set up and I've been having so much fun with them. I was concerned I was not going to like the style but they were similar to the ones that I wear anyway. But I actually really like them on me. I thought the sides would be bulky but no one even notices the arms. Of course, it's not stereo sound but I have music playing on them as I walk around cleaning my house and it's just fine. I also have been told that the clarity on phone calls is perfect. Better than using the speakerphone." โ€”tjk224

    Get it from Amazon for $249.99 (available in three color options).

    The future is really making its way into your home.
