Here are 7 favorite gadgets this summer:
1. Quip Toothbrush | $25-$50
Electric toothbrushes are way better at cleaning your teeth, but they can be bulky, inconvenient and expensive. So, a group of dentists and designers came together to create quip.
Includes the features you need and excludes those you don’t. With only one mode, gentle vibrations with no harsh rotations. Practical, reasonably priced, and still gives you the much-needed injection of futurism.
2. Noke Padlock | $60
Before you go investing in an expensive smart suitcase or settle for a cheap run-of-the-mill lock, consider the Noke. A smart padlock that unlocks with your smartphone via Bluetooth, eliminating the hassle of lost keys and the common “what’s my combination?” moments.
Optional Bluetooth key fob available for non-smartphone users.
3. Leatherman Skeletool Pocket Knife | $24.99
A minimalist but very handy all-purpose tool. Reliable blade, highly functional pliers, Screwdriver bit holder with #1 and #2 drill bits, and last but not least, carabiner bottle opener with pocket clip.
Premium options are available with stainless steel and more features but you’d be set with the base model really.
