It doesn't matter if you're walking, running, or riding a bike — it's a lot easier for cars to see you after dark if you're wearing something reflective. With Life Paint, that can be pretty much whatever you want to wear. This water-based reflective spray is invisible by daylight, yet glows brightly when hit with the beam of a car's headlights. It works best on textile materials, whether it's shoes, a jacket, or a hat, lasts for over a week during normal use, and washes off, leaving whatever you sprayed it on just as it was.
More things connected to the Internet equals more things you can control remotely. Unfortunately, that also means more apps dedicated to all your stuff. The Sevenhugs Smart Remote looks to remove your phone from the equation altogether by giving you context-sensitive controls over everything in your house. Using a system of plug-in beacons, the remote automatically knows where it is and what you're pointing it at, displaying the right controls for the job on the fly. That means you need only one remote to control your TV, lighting, thermostat, music, and more, while your phone stays happily in your pocket.
Modern virtual reality systems envelop your senses of sight and sounds with ever more realistic environments. The Teslasuit promises to do the same for your sense of touch. Using an electro-tactile haptic feedback system embedded inside clothing, it can let you touch and feel objects inside virtual worlds. It connects to your rig via Bluetooth 4.0 LE, and depending on which model you choose — Pioneer or Prodigy — you'll get either 16 or 52 feedback channels that can draw you into the experience like never before. It's upgradable, thanks to a modular design, and even includes climate control, so you can feel the heat or chill of the world you're exploring.
