Toymail ($60)
Toymail语音留言盒(60美元)

Toymail, a voicemail box disguised as a toy animal, lets parents and children exchange messages without making live calls. Perfect for the perpetually traveling parent who doesn't want to give their young child a cellphone. Simply connect the toy mailbox, which comes in six different animal shapes to the Wi-Fi network. Download the app and presto: Now you can call the mailbox through the app and leave a message. The mailbox will snort or wheeze to let kids know they have a message, and they can reply.
Toymail是一个动物玩具外形的语音留言盒,父母和孩子们可以用它来传递信息,而不必打电话。对于整天出差在外又不想让年幼子女使用手机的家长来说,Toymail可以算是完美的礼物。它有六种动物外形可供选择,联上Wi-Fi即可使用。下载手机应用和presto电子付费系统,就可以用它留言。Toymail会发出叫声来提醒孩子们有留言,孩子们也可以用Toymail进行回复。

Supermechanical's Range ($70)
Supermechanical的Range温度计(70美元)

Does people really need a thermometer that sends their phone updates about their food cooking at home? No, not really. But do we all dream of cooking the perfect roast or holiday ham? Yes, we do, and the Range by Supermechanical can help. The Range, which comes in two versions - Ember with a sharp tip for roasts, and Aqua which has a round tip for liquids bubbling in pots - links wirelessly to your phone. You can get alerts when the temperature goes beyond a certain range and charts showing whether your food cooking at home is ice-cold or piping-hot. Now you can definitively prove to dinner guests that the chicken was not under cooked.
我们真的需要一个能向自己手机发送食物烹饪温度的智能温度计么?不一定。不过,我们是不是都梦想着做出完美的烤肉或者假日火腿呢?当然。Supermechanical制造的Range温度计可以帮你。这种温度计有两种款式:Ember型末端有尖,可以用来测烤肉的温度;Aqua型的末端为圆形,可以来探测液体温度。它们能和手机进行无线连接。如果温度超出一定范围,就会发出警报;它们还能用图形显示正在做的菜是冰凉还是滚烫。有了它,现在你就可以向来吃晚餐的客人证明——餐桌上的烤鸡绝对不会欠缺火候。

Adaptics Drop ($100)
Adaptics Drop智能秤(100美元)

Who hasn’t been stumped when trying to adjust a recipe to make smaller or bigger portions? The Drop, made by Adaptics, is a smart scale for weighing baking ingredients. An app connected to your phone via Bluetooth automatically tells you how much sugar you need based on the amount of flour you place on the scale, for example. You can also automatically scale a recipe up or down beforehand by pressing a few buttons on the app. In the future, Drop plans to unroll a feature that will let you know what ingredients you can use as substitutes if you run low on something essential.
按照菜谱做菜时,怎样增减份量是否曾经难倒过你?科技公司Adaptics出品的Drop是一款为烤焙原料称重的智能秤。借助应用软件,它可以通过蓝牙和你的手机相连,然后基于称量的面粉重量自动告诉你需要放多少调料,比如糖。如果要增加或减少份量,只需要在手机上点几下,它就能自动计算出结果。按计划,Drop未来还将增加一项新功能,那就是如果某种重要原料不够用了,它会告诉你可以用什么东西来代替。

Tile ($25.00)
Tile智能感应器(25美元)

Tile is a smart-sensor that lets you find things you've lost. Attach the square Bluetooth sensor to your keys, or wallet, or whatever it is you want to keep track of. The next time you lose something, you can use an app to find your lost object (as long as you're within 100 feet of it). The app will let you know how close you are based on the strength of the Bluetooth signal. In addition, while you search, Tile will beep to help you find the object of your affections faster. A must-have for the person in your life who loses everything (except their phone).
Tile是一款可以帮你找东西的智能感应器。把这个方形蓝牙设备穿在钥匙上,放进钱包里,或者跟其他你想追踪的物品放在一起,如果这些东西不见了,只要距离不超过100英尺(约30.5米),你就可以通过手机应用软件来找到它。根据蓝牙信号强度,手机软件将告诉你离要找的东西有多远。此外,在找东西的过程中,Tile还能通过发出哔哔声来帮你更快地找到它。对于经常丢三落四的人来说,Tile真是一件必需品。不过,千万别弄丢手机。

Fitbit Aria ($130)
Fitbit Aria智能秤(130美元)

December is all about eating while January is all about sticking to your New Year’s resolutions to lose weight. Fitness and data geeks should consider the Aria smart scale, made by Fitbit. Not only can you weigh yourself, you can also track your body fat and your body mass index. The scale syncs to your Wi-Fi, so every time you step on the scale, your data is saved to your online account. You can see graphs showing your progress (or lack thereof) and track your fitness. As encouragement, the app rewards you with badges once you meet your weight goals. If that isn’t enough to make you stick to your New Year’s gym resolutions, nothing will.
12月里人们大快朵颐,到了1月份就要按自己的新年决心来减肥了。如果你既热爱健身又是数据狂人,就应该考虑一下健身产品公司Fitbit制造的Aria智能秤。它不仅可以称重,还能跟踪人们的脂肪和体重指数。连接Wi-Fi后,每称一次体重,它都会把数据保持在你的在线账户里。用户可以通过图表来了解自己的减重成果,并随时掌握自己的身体状况。作为鼓励,一旦你达到体重目标,Aria就会给你颁发奖章。如果这都不能激励你在新一年坚持健身,那基本上你无可救药了。(财富中文网)
