What is the biggest drain on your time at home? What keeps you from getting to the activities you really enjoy? Whatever your answer may be, savvy inventors have likely created a gadget that automates your most tedious tasks. Below, we will take a look at a few of the best time-saving devices on the market today.
Stop Folding Your Clothes
Does your laundry just sit in piles until you have the time (and motivation) to fold it? Do you end up wasting valuable minutes each morning shuffling through the piles looking for an inevitably wrinkly shirt to wear to work? Innovative robotic clothing folders have you covered. You just clip your clothes to an automatic machine such as the Foldimate, and they will be folded to crisp perfection. This gadget also de-wrinkles, softens, and steams your clothing.
Robot Vacuum Cleaners
It may be hard to believe, but robot vacuum cleaners have been on the market for over 20 years now. Today, the industry is flooded with a variety of options. This is great for you, the consumer, because each manufacturer is trying to one-up the others. Consequently, current robot vacuums have several excellent features that earlier generations lacked, such as stronger pickup power and the ability to fit under couches. Additionally, when today’s vacuums get low on battery power, they return to their charging station.
Okay, so maybe smart heating doesn’t directly save you all that much time. But, in the sense that time is money, you will save plenty of both with a smart thermostat. With this device, you can schedule your heating and cooling to suit your lifestyle. For instance, you can set the smart thermostat to be ten degrees cooler when you are not home. If you forget to turn the heat down or are coming home early from work and don’t want a cold house, you can adjust the temperature with a few taps on your phone.
Portable Printers and Scanners
Whatever job you may have, no one wants to be tethered to their office. Whether you need to print important documents or scan them in, you’ve probably been in the situation where you had to stick around your home or office to be near the devices that get these jobs done. Fortunately, there are now portable, lightweight, wireless scanners and printers that allow you to perform these tasks on the go.
