Samsung Galaxy Blade Edge
Samsung finds a way to mock the idea of making everything smart and market its new line of smartphones at the same time.
The Galaxy Blade Edge (Chef's Edition at that) is a smart knife with smartphone capabilities built in and it’s so amazing, you’ll chuck out all the other knives in your kitchen. Its many feature include a food thermometer stylus, fire resistance, as well as a human blood sensor to prevent it from being used as a weapon. Talk about cutting-edge technology.
Who doesn’t love a talking toy? Especially when it’s as smart as Google Panda promises to be. Inspired by a real panda, Google Panda is designed to hug your arm and answer any question you might have in 50 different languages. Oh, and it’s also shockproof thanks to all that cuddly fuzz.
