The Anti-snore pillow is here!
Finally, a way to stop that snoring. But how does this work? The pillow uses deployable airbags to reposition the sleeper’s head when they start to snore. I’m not sure how this doesn’t wake you up, but company 10Minds seems dedicated to its cause.
You may never have thought you needed this, but the smart bird feeder is one showcased. It uses a camera and AI to identify birds that sit on it. Maybe it ruins the fun of trying to name them yourself, but this tech lets you birdwatch 24/7.
Ever wanted to analyse your urine? No? Now you can!

What’s useful is it will keep tabs on your nutrition levels, monitor menstruation, and many more health indicators. This one I think is quite useful if you can get past the robot inside your toilet.
