Worst Gadgets of 2016

2016 has been a great year for tech releases. And though a lot of the releases were huge hits, there were also some that ended up as major disappointments to consumers.

Though the hype was huge in these gadgets, they failed to keep up and ended up failing. Such a shame, these gadgets have great potentials, but for some reasons, they didn’t have great luck last year.

Here are some of the worst gadgets released in 2016:

Hover Boards

These hover boards were a massive hit when it was released! We’ve waited long enough to have something close to those boards from “Back To The Future.”

These electric skateboards gained their popularity because of some celebrities posting shots of themselves rolling around on a hover board. (Thanks Justin Bieber!)

A huge turn of events happened when the CES booth of Future Motion, a Chinese hoverboard maker, said it invented and patented a self-balancing electric skateboard that looked strikingly similar to the ones the marshals confiscated.

After two months, big retailers like Amazon stopped selling hover boards. This is because the US Consumer Product Safety Commission deemed hover boards unsafe as they pose unreasonable risk of fire.

 

Smart Watches

 

Google unveiled its Android Wear Smartwatch at CES 2014 along with dozens of smartwatch models. A few months later, Apple also announced its iWatch release. Though sales were going well, they expected that by year two, they could get smart watches to compete with smart phones. Fast forward to 2016 and we see that sales of smart watches have dropped 52 percent from their previous year.

 

Smart Glasses

At Google’s developers’ conference in 2013, a lot of people were so excited for Google Glass, the very first internet-connected eye wear. At CES of the following year, there has been some models of smart glasses from other models like Vergence Labs’ Epiphany glasses and the Epson Moverio BT-200. The features and functions were really amazing. From taking snapshots in a blink of an eye to controlling drones with hand gestures, these smart watches were so promising.

It’s been almost 3 years since the release but no mainstream smart glasses are selling in high volumes. Google Glass even flopped. Though Apple is also working on a same technology, they haven’t released one yet.
We don’t know what’s in store for these gadgets this year, but we can only hope for the best. Check out britviclearningzone.com to find a co2 laser which is an excellent technology advance.

Oakley Radar Pace Glasses: Not Your Average Sports Eyewear

Ahh! Thank goodness for technology. Gone are the days when you have to do things manually on your own. Now, in just a click of a mouse or a voice command, you can work on your important tasks. Let’s take this Oakley Radar Pace Glasses for example.

Do you envy people who have the discipline to run and do their daily cardio exercises religiously? Well, that’s what most of us feel. But the good news is, keeping track of your daily exercise won’t be a challenge for us anymore. Thanks to these glasses!

The Oakley Radar Pace Glasses

The Oakley Radar Pace glasses may look like the sports eyewear you wear every day – futuristic and sleek. But it’s not just that. This eyewear has a voice-activated coaching system. Now, how cool is that?

The system works with removable earphones, three microphones, and some internal sensors for real-time updates on your physical activities like running or cycling. The commands are delivered with the vocal prompt “Ok, Radar”. It’s something like Apple’s Siri, but is more geared towards your activities.

So, what’s the fuss?

The Oakley Radar Pace Glasses are paired with an application. Using the app, you can create your own training plan based on your fitness levels. It allows you to choose if you’re a beginner, advanced, or expert. The app also lets you choose among three programs you want to focus on – speed, maintenance, and endurance. It is so flexible, easy to use, and surprisingly, motivational.

For starters, you can start your interaction by asking Radar for your workout plan for the day. Radar will answer based on the plan you set on the app. It starts with the warm-up then your main exercise.

The glasses are easy to carry, comfortably light, ergonomic, and with minimal shaking or sliding. It also gives motivational advice along the way like “use shorter, quicker steps as you run.”

Missed a schedule? Worry no more. These glasses will automatically reschedule it so there’s no flaking out.

You can also take phone calls wirelessly from your pocket and easily play music through the earphones linked to the glasses. Not only that, you can also connect other devices like foot pods and heart rate monitors. Awesome, right?

Unfortunately, lenses aren’t available in prescription form, which is a major downfall. With a price of $490, it can deter some casual joggers. But for distance runners, who are the real target audience, they will seem to go down well.
