Logitech Harmony Ultimate Home Remote Controller
As technology advances with big steps and everyday hundreds and thousands of new gadgets are released to the market to make our lives easier, there was time somebody took a closer look at the good old remote controller and bring it into the 21st century!

Don’t get me wrong! There were other remote controllers too that got upgraded to the digital world (take for example the Logitech Harmony Touch), but can we really consider them Smart?

Logitech’s news lines of Harmony remote controls, the Harmony Ultimate Home, not only allows you to control all your media devices from one single controller, but also helps you control your entire home while you’re lying on the couch enjoying our favorite show.

The Harmony Ultimate Home control kit syncs with your iPhone or Android device via Bluetooth 4.0 and allows you to control your home automation system via the free iOs and Android Logitech apps. On the other end, the smart controller connects to various devices in your house using infrared (IR), Bluetooth or Wi-Fi wireless signal allowing you to control all your home automation as well as media devices from one master remote.
Another cool option worth mentioning is the possibility of creating user defined macros (recording and replaying a suite of actions by only touching one button). Let’s say for example that your regular routing for watching a movie is: close the window, dim the light, extend the couch, turn on the TV and the media player, set the picture and audio modes to Movie and set the starting volume to 57. The Logitech Harmony Ultimate Home allows your to record all these actions and re-do them by simply hitting the assigned command button (of course, we assume that your home automation system already allows you to automate all these actions). Cool, isn’t it?

Pavlok - The Fitness Tracker With Punishing Powers!
If you tried any fitness trackers you must have noticed that most (if not all) of them focus on the same principle – they gather information, process it and present it to you on a positive note to motivate you to push further.
But, what if that doesn’t work? What if positive reinforcement is not for you? Don’t get me wrong, I am not says you need a beating because you over-slept this morning, but … maybe a little reminder zap would have helped?!?

ALSO CHECK the Withings Pulse, the FitBit Ultra and the MyBasis fitness trackers we featured earlier.

Enter PavlokPavlok does everything other fitness trackers do, but there’s also a subtle addition – the app aims to change and form habits owners wish they have by reinforcing good behaviors and punishing bad behaviors with small electric zaps (just like the static electricity shocks feel when you touch the door knob) and shame posts on social media telling your friends you had a gym training and you missed it!!!
Here’s how the guys from Pavlok describe it: “Earn Rewards when you Succeed. Face Penalties if you Fail.

Pavlok is in prototype mode, will be available for iPhone and can be pre-ordered with delivery scheduled for early 2015.
