About 10 years ago we managed simple phones and wrote the present paper letters. And today in the ordinary smartphone of ten of applications at us, a purse and the camera. But scientists and engineers slave away and surprise us with fresh technical inventions. Some gradually enter our life, and others exist only in the form of projects so far.
10 new smart devices which show how far technologies have promoted. And at the end of you waits for a bonus — the real anti-gadget which promises to preserve to you real-life communication.

The patent for creation of special "robobees" just as in one of episodes of series "Black Mirror", the Walmart company has given. For quite some time now the retailer actively supports environmental protection, and "drones pollinators" have to promote it.
As it was conceived by engineers, drones will be able to perform almost all functions of the real bees unless honey won't be done (though who knows?). In the long term it will help to keep a set of plants and to develop agriculture in the most different regions of the earth.
A few years ago businessmen from Australia have patented and have collected a special beehive which to handle as easy as shelling pears. The modular beehive gathering as the designer allows not only to support bees, but also on the place to carry out gathering honey.
The project has so impressed users of one crowdfunding platform that they have collected the necessary sum, and then it was put in production. Now businessmen have addressed crowd funding again to raise funds for the new, improved beehive model.
Looking at some devices, and there is a wish to knock himself a palm on the head with words: "Why not I have thought up it?!" One of such devices — IllumiBowl — represents the simplest lamp.

And fitness in the 21st century it is difficult to present individual sports activities without gadgets and wearable devices. And here enthusiasts from the USA have equipped with sensors an apparatus. With a vengeance! Meet - it is VHOOP, clever хулахуп.

The Chinese producer VVFLY studies problems of a human dream long ago. Developers have tried to make the device which would improve a dream and has solved a snore problem.
As the producer says, thanks to special vibrations their smart bandage for eyes helps to optimize breath and saves from snore. Also there are bases to trust them: their child any more not just prototype, and serial goods.
Recently the British Condoms company has shown the project of "clever condom" i.Con. He looks as a fitness bracelet, but is intended for other parts of a body and measures other indicators. To protect from diseases or pregnancy he yet can't (though authors work on it) therefore the loud name is given in the advance payment.
Sensors read out activity during sexual intercourse. Among the traced parameters — duration, speed and intensity of the movement, the most popular poses and the number of acts for a period, temperature of genitals and also the number of the lost calories. If desired users will be able to share the achievements with others.
The device under the name Hushme, though looks somewhat oddly, serves an important mission: it keeps in secret everything that you tell. Still this font allows to speak by phone in any place, without disturbing people around. The invention in itself seemingly necessary, but here appearance leaves much to be desired so far.
Yes, Hushme can imitate Darth Vader's voice.
A few years ago Gregkhem Dugongs was at a musical festival. There he was surprised by behavior of some people: they removed tipsy colleagues and spread rollers in network, including it amusing. Then Dugongs has thought of legal degree of confidentiality and I have started the startup of Yondr.
Dugongs considers that it is possible to do without smartphone perfectly several hours. For example, at a concert, during communication with friends or in educational institution. The company makes special covers which are closed on a magnet and which can't be degaussed independently.
Coming to study, children remove phones in covers, and degauss them after occupations. The original idea already gets a positive response at the American schools.
