You will be forgiven for not thinking of the Kolibree when you think of electric toothbrushes; it’s a tough market cornered by two giants: Philips and Oral B. However, the Ara from Kolibree boasts the impressive title of being the world’s first toothbrush with artificial intelligence. Whether that is a good thing remains to be seen, but we are a sucker for a ‘world’s first’ here at Gadgethead. So, lets take a look at what the Ara brings to the table…or sink…whatever.

Every month, many women have the “pleasure” of feeling like their insides are being repeatedly twisted and squeezed like a wet towel being rung out, but because we are all superheroes we carry on with our daily routines as usual. I am of course referring to Aunt Flo’s monthly karate kick to the abdomen that always sends women hobbling to the medicine cabinet. The Livia is a CE-approved medical device aimed to help relieve menstrual pains. It works by using two electrodes that can be placed on the skin near the source of the pain.
January is the month where everyone will be looking for new year’s resolutions, including making healthier choices when it comes to your diet. Introducing the SITU Smart Food Nutrition Scale designed for iPhone, iPad and Android devices, which works by weighing your food and sending the information to the app. From there you can then view the calories and nutrients on the app so you know exactly what you are putting into your body. You might not even consider that amount of sugar in a piece of bread for example, or sodium in cheese.
One of the wonderful benefits they forget to mention about working out is the constant cycle of aching muscles all over your body. Therefore the Reviber Zen Physio Deep Tissue Massager could potentially be godsend! At first inspection it looked slightly intimidating: the instructions are either translated or just badly written, but you soon get the gist of how it works. The Physio claims to release muscular tension with a steady, comfortable, pulsed acupressure, and that this massage technique penetrates even the tightest muscles, sounds perfect right?
The idea of wearing a pair of glasses that shine light into your eyes might not immediately sound like the most comfortable experience, but trust me when I say that this is a good idea. The AYO uses a similar principle to light therapy boxes, but comes built into a wearable set of glasses. AYO aims to help combat symptoms of S.A.D, Jet Lag, helping maintain healthier body rhythms and boost energy in winter months.
The Thermo by Nokia is Smart Temporal Thermometer that connects via an app (because if it doesn’t come with an app these days it doesn’t really exist), and uses an infrared sensor to get an accurate reading in a non-invasive way. It all comes in a rather stylish package and the thermometer itself has a tactile feeling about it, and comfortably fits the hand making it ideal for grabbing and using in low lights without the fear of dropping it on your patient’s face.
A good night’s sleep has the power to make everything feel better, and on the flip side, a bad night’s sleep can make even the smallest issue 100% worse. The RESPeRATE 2Breathe Sleep Inducer aims to help you get to sleep easier by calming your mind and body towards sleep. The 2Breathe tries to reduce “pre-sleep tension” which can become vicious cycle of worrying that you can’t get to sleep and then you can’t sleep because you are in fact worrying.
As someone who often struggles with falling to sleep, or getting enough of it, I am always willing to try out products that offer a solution to this. The Sleep Shepherd aims to help you get to sleep and measures your quality of sleep during the night. Essentially it is a head band you wear at night with built in speakers and an EEG brainwave monitor (don’t worry this isn’t as scary as it sounds). The built-in speakers play binaural beats, one played into each ear, each tone is set to a precise, but different frequency with an adjustable volume.
I love this time of year with the buzz of Christmas in the air and the joy of snuggling up at home in the warm whilst the world outside is cold and dark, however the short days and lack of sun light don’t love me. I can normally make it through Christmas okay but shortly after, every year, I crash big time. I mope about the house like a grey mist, not wanting to do anything, starting arguments with everyone, from my boyfriend to the toaster, I am not nice to be around.
