Crazy tech gadgets for your smart home

These days’ smart home contraptions are dramatically bringing your household into the future. Can’t be bothered to get off the couch to turn the lights on and off or want the air con on? No problem, there’s devices for that.

But on the other end of the spectrum there are a whole range of zany gadgets that can allow you do the most random tasks. All you need is to connect them to your Optus nbnTM (min. cost 24 months $1,440), WiFi connection and you can play around with these tech toys at home.

Infinity Water Pitcher & WiFi Connected Filter

Yup, it’s a WiFi connected water jug. This handy container orders replacement filters whenever the current purifier is near its limit and you need a new one.

Kérastase Hair Coach Powered by Withings

Brushing your hair doesn’t get more high tech than this. The smart hairbrush has a microphone that listens to your brushing and has sensors that analyse your brush strokes and patterns. It then relays the data to a mobile app, that’s designed to help stop you from damaging your hair.

Hushme Voice Mask

We've all been stuck next to that loud person yapping on the phone. HushMe aims to avoid these awkward situations in an unusual way. The wearable device is made up of a pair of earbuds joined to a padded mask that covers the wearer's mouth to muffle their voice while they speak. It looks a little like a lower face mask, with a difference.

Quirky Egg Minder Smart Egg Tray

This egg tray looks pretty standard – however it contains a little built-in Wi-Fi chip that lets you sync up to your smart device via an app. Once this has been done, you can open the app anytime, anywhere and find out how many eggs you have. There’s also an LED light that will alert you to which egg is the oldest and which should be used next. How egg-cellent!

Kuvée Bottle

If you like wine, you’re going to love this device. Connect it to your Optus NBN WiFi-connection and it becomes your very own touchscreen-enabled wine bottle sleeve. You purchase a wine 'cartridge’ that slots in. It then allows you to browse through info on the wine you’re drinking.

Run out? Then in just a few taps you can buy a replacement on the bottle itself. Best part? Their wine cartridges will stay fresh for up to 30 days. Cheers!


HAPIfork claims to allow you to monitor and track your eating habits and help with weight management. There’s also an alert that notifies you when you are eating too fast. This handy device also tracks data about the way you eat meals including how long it took you to eat, fork servings per minute and your intervals between bites. You are then able to upload the data to an online dashboard to track your progress.

Uzer Eugene Trash Scanner

The Eugene device lets you know how to sort recycling and rubbish by scanning the barcode on labels. It also keeps track of any items scanned so that you can easily reorder it.

Ekko Connected Mirror

At first glance, you see a big mirror. But what you don’t realise is that it allows you to not only listen to your favourite music it also lets you grab the latest news, weather and any other updates you choose to customise.
