The Parrot Pot
The Parrot Pot‘s technology in a nutshell: it keeps your plants happily alive with taps straight from your smartphone. While it looks like any other plant pot, its built in Flower Power app and wireless sensors, lets you “connect” with your Parrot Pot via your smartphone’s bluetooth. You can easily measure the ambient temperature, light, soil moisture, and fertilizer level of your plant.
The Connected Cars
It has been said that the Connected Cars have stolen the gadget spotlight. These cars come with touchscreen dashboards and other high-tech features that are controllable by smartwatches. Joining the bandwagon are BMW with its fully automated valet parking technology, and Hyundai, which automatically unlocks your door from your smartwatch. Audi and Mercedes Benz are said to launch their own driverless cars.
