Cool gadgets do more than simply make it easier for us to disengage from the world. These five cool gadgets are changing the world as they know it and making it a better place.

Sunu Band

The Sunu Band is a sonar smart bracelet to help the blind and the seriously visually-impaired to sense items before they collide with them. Other similar devices on the market are either too expensive or too intrusive. The Sunu Band looks like a fashion accessory, but it’s really helping you sense items and find lost items all at the same time.


The Hydrao smart showerhead provides you with a way to figure out how much water you’re using during your showers. It will also help you cut down on the amount of water you use by lighting up LED lights when you reach certain thresholds.

For example, you can set it to five, seven, and ten gallons. It doesn’t shut off the water when you reach your limits, but you should feel guilty enough to do it yourself!


Hundreds of people die on the roads every year because someone decided to text while driving. Using the phone is a crime, but it doesn’t seem to deter some people from breaking the law. The Smartwheel helps keep you honest by issuing audio and voice alerts when you are using your phone.

It does this by monitoring how many hands you have on the wheel at one time. It alerts you whenever you have less than two hands on the wheel for too long, or when your hands are too close together.

If you have trouble keeping your phone in your pocket while driving, this could be the way to help curtail those nasty habits.


Outdoor security just got that much more convenient with Netatmo, a kind of security camera. It comes with a variety of features, including sending alerts when there’s a car in your driveway, a pet running around the garden, or someone is waiting at the door.

It connects to your home Wi-Fi system and sends notifications to your phone. You can look at these push notifications and act accordingly.

These cool gadgets will help with security and prevent you from receiving any nasty surprises when you return home or open the door.

Screen Braille Communicator

For those who are blind and those who are deaf, the screen braille communicator is a life saver. It allows them to communicate through braille. They can even use a street grid to figure out where they are going to go in their city, although this is an add-on.

The screen braille communicator doesn’t require the other person to understand braille as the communicator transforms the person’s movements into plain English.
