Always on the lookout for cool new stuff? So are we. And when it comes to our home, we are always excited to showcase the latest and greatest, and share what we find.
Check out these 8 new products you'll be rushing to put in your home.
1. Nest Cam
It's got 1080p HD video streaming, Night Vision, activity alerts, a 130° wide-angle view, a zoom feature, and can be used as a pet cam or baby monitor. Plus, "sign up for Nest Aware, and you can go back and see what you missed," said Nest. All this for just $199.
2. Peel and stick wallpaper
It's not necessarily a super new product, but the variety of styles available makes peel-and-stick wallpaper one of our newest and most favorite products.
Whether you go fancy with a glam pattern or urban industrial with an old brick pattern, you'll love the fact that it requires no glue and can be repositioned over and over—very helpful in the application (trust us!).
3. June Intelligent Oven
Perfect for the lazy chef at home (ahem, guilty!), the June Intelligent Oven is "a computer-based oven that thinks like a chef," is compact enough to sit on a countertop…and can fit food as large as a 12" pizza pie," said Huffington Post. "The June Intelligent Oven comes with a built-in camera that allows it to recognize the food you're cooking. From there, the oven will recommend an estimated temperature and cooking time for your dish. It's quite the over-achiever."
4. Kaffeeform recycled coffee cups
Looks like hardwood, smells like coffee, and makes you feel good about using a recycled product. Kaffeeform, coffee cups use "an innovative recycled material made from used coffee grounds and renewable raw materials."
If you're looking to update your walls beyond paint and want more texture than wallpaper, Stikwood could be your answer. This cool new product is also peel and stick, but instead of wallpaper, it's made of solid wood planking.
"Stikwood comes in a variety of looks from contemporary to rustic. An innovative interior design solution, Stikwood is economical, environmentally responsible, and offers you endless creative design solutions," they said.
6. LG Twin Wash
One of the coolest products to bow at this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the LG Twin Wash is "essentially a washing machine within a washing machine," said PC Magazine. "There's space for a full-size load on top, and a smaller, pull-out drawer on the bottom allows you to wash a second load simultaneously, so that you can get through the dreaded laundry day in half the amount of time."
7. Lenova Bamboo Sink
We've seen one trillion farmhouse sinks—and that's just from one night of watching HGTV—but we've never seen one like this! Lenova's single bowl apron front bamboo sink (comes in double bowl too!) is sleek, stylish, unique, and made from a renewal material.
8. Here Active Listening
This Kickstarter project features "two truly wireless, in-ear buds and a smartphone app…that allows you to instantly control real world audio so you can hear what you want to hear—no matter the situation—and be fully immersed in your audio environment. The Digital Signal Processor (DSP) inside Here acts as a studio in your ears by providing you with a volume knob, equalizer and effects to transform real world audio."
In a nutshell, Here allows you to hear what you want, amplifying or reducing certain sounds. Some of you may think it would be cool to use these to spy on conversations (you know who you are!), but we're loving them for other reasons. The ability to drown out Spongebob from the other room comes to mind.
Clearly people like the idea. Here has reached more than double its $250,000 goal.
