27 Clever Products That Look Like They're From The Future

"Beep boop, boop beep" — all the products in this post are talking to you in futuristic robot language.

2. An android who — conveniently! — has the same taste in literature as you do.

And he promises to never incite an uprising against mankind with his fellow androids. Phewwwwww (now you don't have to worry about that as you read the new Zadie Smith book together).

Get it from Animi Causa for $12.99.

3. Color-changing ice cubes that look like they should be used in cocktails served at a bar on a space ship.

The cocktails would be served by Michael Sheen.

Yes, I've had to sit through the trailer for Passengers before the last 45 movies I've seen in the theater. That may be an exaggeration, but not by much.

Get them from Urban Outfitters for $14.


4. A gadget that lets you create — and view — 3-D holograms on your phone.

You can also send them to other phones. Maybe you'll be one of the first people to master the art of holographic sexting. What an accomplishment that will be.

Get it from Animi Causa for $17.99.

7. "Squigz" toys that'll stimulate three of your toddler's senses (touch, sound, and sight).

And — knowing toddlers — maybe even their sense of taste: Little dudes and ladies are bound to put these things in their mouths (thankfully they're BPA-free).

Get them from Amazon for $18.95.


12. An orb-like light that'll illuminate your bottomless-pit of a purse.

It ~knows~ when to light up thanks to proximity sensors that activate when your hand comes near (and it'll turn off automatically after remaining on for 10 seconds).

Get it from Amazon for $31.90.

15. A LED light that looks like a hunk of Aggro Crag from Guts and can be programmed to display custom colors when you get a notification on your phone.

For example, cerulean for texts, lime for tweets, a macaroni yellow for Facebook messages, and so on.

Get it from Amazon for $49.99.


16. A super-sensitive smart thermometer that can take a reading in less than three seconds.

It syncs with an app on your phone so you can keep track of temperature fluctuations (and other notes) over a period of hours (or days).

Get it from Amazon for $79.95.


27. And a modular lighting kit that can display over a million different colors.

So I think it's safe to say that there's no way you won't be able to find a color scheme that matches your sofa. Or even the mole two inches from the right of your belly button.

Get it from Fab for $199.99.
