1.     Modius - Weight Loss Headset

This Modius headset supposedly helps you lose weight without exercise. Yes, you heard it right. Introduced by British startup Neurovalens, the headset stimulates the part of the brain known to control fat storage, metabolism and appetite. According to Modius' website, the headset "generates a low-level electrical pulse that is interpreted by the brain as a signal to become leaner." The headset charges overnight by plugging it into a USB port.

The headset device will be released in April and would cost at $499 from the online stores. However, an additional $37 for three-month supply of wipes and pads, which you’ll have to replace them after those run out.

2.    Vuzix Blade Smart Glasses

Vuzix showcased its latest version of the augmented reality (AR) glasses at the Mobile World Conference in Barcelona. It features a transparent smart display which takes advantage of both proprietary optics and display engine. It can connect to Wi-Fi and read emails and other messages via this display, as well as using Alexa, Amazon's digital assistant, to issue voice commands. The glasses can also give you directions via GPS on the screen.

The Vuzix Blade glasses is set to launch later this year and will cost around $1,300.

3.     Wireless Meat Thermometer

The Meater is a reliable and worthwhile tool that will guarantee perfectly cooked meats every time you cook. The pen-shaped Meater measures 5.1-by-0.27-inches and is built with a stainless steel, water-resistant construction.

One of the best features using this thermometer is that it lets you monitor how your meat is doing from an app on your phone which means it communicates with your phone via Bluetooth or wi-fi.

According to Matt Blyden, Meater’s marketing manager, “The app has been designed to monitor the internal temperature of the oven or barbecue and the internal temperature of the meat.”

It is available for pre-order on the official site for $69.

4.    Bisecu - Smart Bike Lock

Bisecu introduces an all-new smart bike lock at the MWC 2018. Bisecu automatically locks your bike as you walk away and unlocks your bike as you approach to it. A truly automatic device, free from keys, Bisecu is designed for the next generation riders.

With Bisecu, you no longer need to worry about it. In case of theft, a 100db loud alarm with mobile push notification inform the owner that the bike is being tampered with. It will be shipped in March 2018, however, the price has not been revealed yet.

5.     Vayyar Imaging- See Through Walls

Want to look inside the wall? Israeli 3D imaging company Vayyar has developed a sensor that uses radio waves to "see" through materials.

You just have to tick the sensor on your phone and when you place your handset on the wall, it allows your device to peer right through the walls.

According to Malcolm Berman, Vayyar director of marketing, "It is almost like a new kind of camera that opens up capabilities that were not there before.”
