It'll alert you when the plants need more food or water, so you don't need a green thumb for it to work! I actually own and love this Aerogarden — it's super easy to take care of, doesn't take up too much space on my counter, and provides me with an endless amount of fresh herbs to cook with. I'm clueless about plants and this machine basically does all the work me.

    15. A pair of Jaybird Vista earpods that sound amazing, and they actually won't fall out of your ears — and even if they do, you can track them using an app.

    Sarah Aspler / BuzzFeed

    I personally own these and LOVE them. They’re mostly designed for athletes and runners (because they are waterproof and sweat proof), but I find that they’re perfect for my daily life. These bad boys stay in all day long, don’t hurt my ears, and have great battery life. They have six hours of charge and can recharge in their case for another 10 hours. They have passive noise cancelling and I’m not a big tech nerd or audiophile, but these things sound GOOD. The case is super compact and has a really strong, satisfying magnet to keep everything in one place. Read my full review of the Jaybird earpods here!

    Get them on Amazon Canada for $239.99.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $63.90.

    Amazon / Via,

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $61.96.

    19. A wireless pocket projector for accessing a giant screen anytime, anywhere. The best part is it can fit in the palm of your hand.

    Yi Yang / BuzzFeed

    I actually own and love this pocket projector. Despite its compact size, this little guy can actually project quite far. I’ve used it to watch films and shows, and it truly feels like I have my own personal movie theatre. (The darker the room, the clearer and crisper the images are, so I always use it at night with the lights out. However, blackout shades would work, too!) It can connect to a phone or computer, AND it has its own speakers (though you can connect it to an external speaker as well). For longer binge sessions, I like to have it plugged in so it doesn’t run out of juice, but it can last through a couple of 40-minute episodes unplugged just fine. The best part is once I’m done with it, it fits nicely into my drawers for storage. Easy peasy. It’s a lot simpler to deal with than the full-size one I used to own. Though I haven’t taken it on a trip yet, I’m excited that it’ll fit easily in my duffel bag or carry-on suitcase.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $229.99.

    20. A bidet that'll literally wash your butt for you. If that isn't progress, I don't know what is.

    It hooks up to your phone or device via Bluetooth and has a built-in microphone for hands-free calling. Once connected, one touch answers/ends calls, plays/pauses audio, and can access Siri. Oh, and it chirps when touched.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $129.

    22. An Airfly wireless transmitter designed to let you connect your Airpods or any wireless headphones to all those things that don't have Bluetooth — like an airplane seat!!

    Amazon / Via

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $54.85.

    23. A futuristic LED word clock that'll make you ask, "What year is it?!" when you wake up.
