There are plenty of fun, interesting and useful gadgets available on the market these days. Check out Kristian Harrison’s top finds.
Fitbit Aria Wi-Fi Smart Scale
These are wireless smart scales. They won’t just tell you your weight, they’ll track weight changes and monitor your BMI and body fat percentage for up to seven people. The data is uploaded via your Wi-Fi network and is available online or in a free iPhone app.
Metal Art MECH Warrior Phone Stand
Similar to mechs featured in movies and computer games, this work of art, complete with dual machine gun arms, stands menacingly on your desk whether at home or in the office. The phone holder has a padded seat for your device to sit in, protecting it whilst in place.
Each phone stand is slightly different as they are all crafted by hand. Junkyard bits and bobs, nuts, bolts, chains and everything in between are soldered together to create a secure place for you to keep your much-loved device.

This useful gadget contains a micro USB and an eight-pin charging adaptor all concealed within a black metallic pen. When extended, the Connector Pen will provide just over 21cm of cable allowing you to charge your smartphone from any standard USB port. When not in use, it is all neatly stored away inside the body of the pen and can even be used as a stylus when the pen nib is retracted.
Using the iKettle’s built-in Wi-Fi, you can start boiling your kettle from anywhere in the house. With the iKettle app, you will save up to two days a year pre-boiling your kettle!
Not only can it boil the water for you, but it will also notify you when it’s ready to pour, needs refilling and when it’s empty. A selection of different temperatures allows you to make your hot drink the way it should be.
Playbulb Bluetooth Candle
It’s an LED light that looks just like a candle. Download the free app from your app store and you can choose the colour of your candle.
Blues, greens, pinks and neutrals; every colour under the rainbow is available at your fingertips. If you can’t decide on what colour you fancy then simply give your phone a shake and it will randomly select a colour for you.
