Our obsession with gadgets can be equated to our need to have comfort food. We crave for them, believing that it will make our lives better and happier. We no longer just rely on getting the latest and most updated smartphones anymore. Today it’s about what cool gadgets and accessories can I get that would support the features of my smartphone or smart TV.
Although many of the gadgets we see are novelty products that we can definitely do without but they do bring so much fun into our homes and our lives. Some gadgets on the other hand make, certain things so much easier and help us declutter our messy lives. Here’s a take of our most loved gadgets this year:
An activity tracker or fitness tracker is essentially a device that monitors and tracks fitness related metrics. Most trackers are designed as a wristband and allow you to keep track of the distance that you have walked or run and your calorie consumption.
A more elaborate tracker will monitor your heartbeat as well as inform you of your quality of sleep. We love this gadget because it helps you understand the fitness regime you’re in better and provides input if it is adequate. This is your very own personal trainer 24/7.

Still on the theme of fitness, we came across a variety of mini exercise machines lately. Our personal favourite is the mini stepper. Although it doesn’t beat the cardio-workout of the full sized stepper, it is definitely sufficient to supplement your exercise routine. Not to mention it is tiny enough to be kept in your office or cubicle for that quick 10 to 15 minutes power workout. Most mini exercise machines are extremely affordable so you could get a variety of them if just doing steps will bore you out.
Tip: Check out Lazada for their range of mini exercise machines. They’re also offering massive discounts for a limited time only.
What’s a magnet tape you ask? Well it is basically a double sided tape with one side having a strong adhesive surface and the other has a magnetic surface. Although this is such a simple idea for a gadget, it’s the simplicity of it which is brilliant. Now you would be able to attach any material to a metal surface. Since it is a tape and not a stiff magnetic strip, you would be able to use it on odd or uneven surfaces as well. For example you could now keep your knives clutter free by sticking a strip of this magnet tape on the kitchen wall.

DIY Cardboard Virtual Reality 3D Glasses
Yes, the name of this particular gadget is a mouthful but it is one heck of a cool item. It started with Google making a cardboard cover for its smartphone. This cardboard cover essentially allows you to enter the Virtual Reality world through certain apps. You would be able to watch concert clips in a real-world environment, ride a virtual roller coaster or free fall from adventurous heights. It is possible to download the plan to make your own cardboard glass but today many companies are making their own versions that are compatible with most phones.
Tip: Lazada offers a variety of cardboard virtual reality 3D glasses and there are also plastic versions as well.
