What’s a techy you ask? Well it’s a person like me who gets all gitty when we find products with little computers in them:0) You know battery operated, cute, functional, grown up toys, that make your life so much easier:0)
I shared with you a couple of weeks ago my iRobot and I’m still loving it! I use it right before I go to bed to sweep away all the dust that settles during the day and I wake up to pretty, clean floors. Remember it also has a wet mop feature too! This is NOT going to deep clean your floors but its such a big help to maintain them:0) Oh and it comes in white!
So I don’t know about you but I will be putting together A LOT of toys this year. Including two big boy bikes. Don’t worry, the kids don’t read my blog:0) So when I heard about the new Ryobi right angle driver I had to have it. Why? Because it fits under tiny awkward spaces. Space that I don’t feel like twisting on a screw for an hour;0) This little handy tool is my favorite one around the house. I don’t remember the last time I picked up a real screwdriver!
I don’t have one. But it’s on my list this year! As you know I’m not a coffee drinker. But I do get down with a good cup of tea and hot chocolate! I feel like this machine will change my life. Instant hot water? Iced teas? Yes and YES! Plus when I have friends over who do drink coffee I’ll be ready to entertain them with my coffee making skills:0)
So we’ve all experience the touch faucets , and sensor faucets in our airports and fancy bathrooms correct? Well now we can have that same luxury in our homes, but a gazillion times better! Early this year I shared with you how I got to visit the DELTA faucet headquarters in Indianapolis. This is where I ABSOLUTLEY fell in love with facets and showerheads and toilets. I know, weird, but not really. We use them EVERYDAY, so why wouldn’t we want them to be super functional with a little fun technology. What I love about the touch faucets is that they actually work. Here’s a little secret. Not every faucet is created equal.
Have you ever used one of those fancy senor reading facets at the airport only to be rejected. It won’t work or turn on and you stand their all germ handed with soapy bubbles? Well the reason why it doesn’t work is because those sensors work off of light. In particular white lights. So if you have on a full white outfit or your hands happen to be the completion of snow, then its all good. But if your like me and your wardrobe consist of neutrals, brown and blacks then, you get rejected. Plus my hands are brown and well that aint changing. Ok back to the point.
Delta uses the same technology we have in smart phones by deditcationg our capacitances. If you want to get your nerd on you can read about it here. As soon as you touch the faucet it turns on. Touch it again it turns off. It’s sort of like a game:0) Plus its perfect for the kitchen. How many times have you handle chicken juice and turned your faucet on with your elbow? Everyday right? ha! Well elbow no more:0)
I also got to test the competitors and trust me DELTA is the way to go! They have patents on their technology because they are WAY ahead of everyone else!
Ready for more tech talk. Great. Ok so I have this showerhead gifted to me by the folks over at Delta. I hardly ever say this about a product, but I’m going to go ahead and say it. THIS PRODUCT HAS CHANGED MY LIFE. Next to my memory foam bed, I don’t think I have every loved a product so much.
The number one thing that makes a shower amazing is water pressure. Without water pressure its not even a shower. It’s a sprinkle and sprinkles don’t remove dirt:0) With this shower head they have inserted H2OKinetic technology that gives you more coverage and pressure without using more water! Oscillating sprayers produce larger droplets so your shower feels amazing!
Here’s a video. I would invite you into my shower but that would be so weird and inappropriate. I couldn’t explain it even if I tried. http://www.deltafaucet.com/bath/details/58471-pk.html
I also got to try out some lights by Lutron this year in my laundry room! My hands are almost always full when I walk in and out of our laundry/mudroom. I love having the lights automatically turn ON and OFF when they are not in use. Plus this is just one of those rooms in our home where the lights never get turned off!
You need a smartphone in your life. I’ve had the android version and this version of the smartphone. I love the iPhone because of the picture quality of the camera and the fact that you get all the best apps first:0) I no longer have a point and shoot camera. All of my photos are taken on my phone and printed out from and app! This is really the only camera you need if your not into photography but want to capture moments!
Now if you LOVE photography then you might want to think about upgrading your camera to this beautiful body. Not quite a full frame, this DSLR will give you some gorgeous photos. I’m asking Santa for one of these. Crossing my fingers. I’ve had my Xsi for almost 4 years and have loved the mess out of it! I’ve gotten every single penny back x10
I also talked about this last week! It’s like a mini computer in my book! Plus it’s a remote and still can’t get over that! ha!
Don’t have this one but I want it for a couple of reasons. One, it’s white and white goes well in my office! ha! It’s so pretty. Two, it has the ability to print from all your mobile devices! When you download the PPS app you can print documents, coupons and PHOTOS right from your phone! YES!
So what’s on your tech list this year?? I have a million more things I could add!
