The Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas has arrived, and it’s brought with it all kinds of fun gadgets and accessories. Here are five of our favourites, coming soon to Mobile Fun!
5. Griffin Smart Bluetooth Connected Toaster
Smart appliances are getting crazy, and even case-maker Griffin is getting into the action with their new smart… toaster. This gadget promises to let you control temperature, bread type and more from anywhere in your home… but you’ve still got to put the bread in the machine and take it out when you’re done. Of course, it also just looks like an awesome toaster, with separate digital settings for bagels, frozen food, gluten-free bread or just ‘a little extra’ time. You don’t need this, but you might quite want one.

4. Twelve South ActionSleeve Apple Watch Armband
The TwelveSouth ActionSleeve is a unique armband strap for the Apple Watch. There are different sizes available for the 38mm and 42mm Apple Watch variants, and it’ll suit both the original Apple Watch, Series 1 and Series 2. Just take your Watch off its original strap, and push it into the ActionSleeve and you’re ready to go for a run. If you prefer your fitness gadgets on your arm instead of your wrist, this is what you need.

3. Griffin BreakSafe 100W USB-C Power Cable
While the new MacBook and MacBook Pros have come with many courageous innovations, they’ve also included a few sacrifices. That includes one fan favourite feature, the MagSafe power connector, which made it easy to plug and unplug your MacBook without worrying about the cord yanking your laptop unceremoniously to the ground. Happily, Griffin have found a way of adding that functionality back to the new MacBook computers, via a USB-C adapter called BreakSafe. Simply plug your USB-C charger into the dongle, and its two-part mechanism will magnetically attach and detach with ease, just like it did with Apple’s MagSafe connector. Awesome.

2. Sony SRS-XB40 Portable Bluetooth Speaker
Want a powerful Bluetooth speaker with some extra features? Take a look at the SRS-XB40, which includes Extra Bass technology to ensure booming bass, clear mids and crisp treble. Unlike most other Bluetooth speakers, these come with full-range speakers with dual passive radiators, allowing for rich stereo sound. The speakers are also lit by three types of built-in lights, making them an true audio-visual spectacle. Despite all these features, the speakers remain sleek and compact, with a water-resistant design that stands up to continued use and abuse.
