5) Microbot Push

You probably like the idea of smart homes far more than your wallet does. So if you’re not in the position to upgrade every appliance and accessory in your house, take a look at Microbot Push.

This tiny robotic finger of sorts sticks to an object and then prods it when commanded to by a smartphone. But if you’re feeling a bit flush and are desperate to remotely control every conceivable thing in your home that has a button, the Prota hub adds pushing to your Microbots over Wi-Fi and the web, along with the means to define automation rules.

6) Grasp

We love Touch ID on the iPhone, to the point we get slightly annoyed when we don’t find it elsewhere: on an older iPad; on a Mac; on our front door; on a pack of especially hard to open carrots. But Grasp might even beat iPhone-style goodness, because it’s applying fingerprint scanning and unlocking to the humble bike lock.

Now, rather than reaching over your bike and grappling with keys, you use the power of your thumb to secure and free your two-wheeled pride-and-joy within seconds.
