The truth is, most of us spend the day sitting at our desk while working – we don’t move much which means a good portion of our day is sedentary, calories aren’t being burnt (getting up to make coffee doesn’t count!) and eventually this causes us to gain weight. Give yourself or the one you love the best gift to enforce your New Year resolution to stay fit – Cubii – the first smart under-desk elliptical that you can bring to work, or put under your desk at home, and pedal away while getting stuff done; you can track your activity and progress with the dedicated app (iOS and Android) to make sure you reach your goals in no time! Plus, if used with friends or loved ones, you can compete and share your progress with each other. So motivating!
Sleep.ai Anti-Snore Wearable
Let’s face it: snoring is an issue. Many of us snore and around 70% of snoring happens when we sleep on our backs; don’t we all just want a good night’s sleep with our partners? Sleep.ai‘s anti-snore wearable and app (iOS and Android) will help control your snoring as well your teeth grinding – once you snore or grind teeth, the wearable will gently vibrate and make you turn to your side. The app uses a deep learning algorithm that is able to distinguish snoring and teeth grinding sounds, and creates a personal record of your patterns which can help you identify factors that can influence the snoring or teeth grinding like alcohol, smoking and medication, so you can track and get statistics. Your significant other will thank you for sure.
After a successful Indiegogo campaign, you can now purchase your wearable for $99 on Sleep.ai’s website.
OK, we know we said no teddy bears, but this is just too cute and smart not to share! Aimed at some of you who are battling long distance relationships, Parihug makes an electronically-connected stuffed animal they call Pari, that lets you hug your significant other from a distance.

If there’s someone out there who you miss more than you get to see, this is the gift for you!
Parihug is available for pre-order starting at $75, so get on the list for the next manufacturing batch now.
