Logitech's Harmony remotes have long been the best way to control your home theater. Now, with the Logitech Harmony Ultimate Home Remote, they can control more than just your entertainment — they can control your house. Working in conjunction with the included, Wi-Fi-enabled Harmony Home Hub, this 2.4-inch touchscreen remote lets you control a bevy of connected devices around your home, including Philips Hue lights, Lutron-controlled window shades, Nest thermostats, and even ZigBee or Z-Wave devices. And thanks to its connectivity, you don't even need the remote — you can control things right from the Harmony app on your phone. The result? You can create and customize dedicated Activities that can do everything from turning the TV to the right channel to setting the lights at the right level with a single touch.
Most ATMs are built to give you cash. The Bitcoin ATM Machine is made to take your cash. But instead of just depositing your paper money into a random checking or savings account, this machine instantly exchanges your currency for bitcoins. You just scan your bitcoin QR code, insert cash — it accepts notes from over 200 countries — and you instantly have bitcoins to spend on whatever you want. It supports most leading exchanges, wallets, and price feeds, and should you need to leave it somewhere public, it also sports an internal steel vault that securely bolts to walls, stands, or countertops, so you can rest easy knowing the cash is safe.
Gone are the days of long, clunky telescopes that you had to manually point at every little thing in the sky you wanted to see close up — consumer telescopes have evolved, and there's no better evidence than the NexStar Evolution 8 Telescope. With an optical tube that's eight inches wide, it does the job of older, much larger telescopes, while its compatibility with iOS and Android apps takes all the guesswork out of finding stars, constellations, and planets. An onboard motor responds to everything you tell it to do through your phone or tablet, so all you have to do is stare up at the night sky.
