Alexa, Siri, and Google's Assistant have gotten us used to the idea of talking to robots. The Kuri Home Robot aims to making living with them commonplace, too. Standing 20 inches tall, a foot wide, and weighing in a 14 lbs, Kuri bears at least a passing resemblance to Big Hero 6's Baymax, no doubt helped along by animations designed by a Pixar vet. Powerful motors enable Kuri to follow you around, even over carpet and thresholds, multiple mics ensure it can hear what you're saying, and a built-in 1080p camera lets you check in on things when you're away. Kuri can also recognize faces, detects objects and automatically maps out your house, and has powerful speakers that can read stories, play music, or just serve to speak its playful robot language.
We spend more time sleeping than doing anything else. It's also more than a little important for your health. So while the price of the Hastens Vividus Bed is eye-popping, it might just be worth it. Each one is built to order by four master craftsmen in Köping, Sweden, and takes 320 hours to put together. The frame is built from northern Swedish pine, the springs from steel, and the layers of padding from flax, cotton, wool, and horsehair that's been braided by hand then unfurled, helping with both airflow and cushioning. The result is an heirloom-quality bed that's more than the sum of its parts.
Whether you're commuting to work, cruising the coast, or carving the streets, the Cycleboard is versatile enough to cover any lifestyle. The aircraft-grade aluminum frame is powered by a 450 watt silent electric hub motor, reaching speeds of 20 mph. Paired with three extra wide tires and five power modes, traveling through dirt, grass, sand, and hills is no problem, and even allows for tandem rides. Maneuvering through traffic is easy with a lean-to-steer system that combines both steering and balance for an easy, natural ride. Available with a phantom black and carbon grey frame and a variety of deck options.
