Now where would we be without our iphone? Probably lost somewhere without the help of Google Maps that’s for sure. Well, it wasn’t too long ago that we all had black and white screens on our phones and the idea of an app was in a galaxy far, far away. How far along have we come?! Its quite scary. We here at Snoochie Boochies, love looking to the future, and when it comes to gadgets, wondering what crazy invention the world will be wearing/using next is super exciting.

So, we thought we’d highlight a couple of gadgets which may look bizarre now, but might just be an essential item in a few short years to come! Oh and we have to say a huge thank you to the awesome and cool Firebox.com that provided us with the inspiration for these pieces (and some of the descriptions!) You can find all of these gadgets on the Firebox website!

1) Bluetooth Gloves

Anyone seen the Total Recall remake with Colin Farrell? Well in that film he has an inbuilt phone in his hand. We’re not quite there yet, but withScreen Shot 2013-05-02 at 09.17.40 this “handy” (sorry) gadget you can almost certainly think you look as cool as him.

The name Bluetooth Gloves doesn’t give much away. ‘Sure’ you might be thinking, ‘they’re gloves that work with a touchscreen, that’s cool’. But prepare yourselves, because we’re through the looking glass here, people.

Not only are these gloves comfy and warm (and totally touch-screen friendly), but they will wirelessly synch with your smartphone, turning your hand into a phone… that’s right. Just pull them on, press the ‘answer’ button and make the classic ‘phone hand’ shape. Now you’re talking.

Utilising an integrated microphone and speaker in the tips of the thumb and little finger, and a control pad on the top, you can communicate without taking your phone out of your pocket.

It’s not quite hands-free, but it still makes answering the phone supremely simple, plus you get to look like you’re having an imaginary conversation.

Talk to the hand.

2) Wine Handbag

Screen Shot 2013-05-02 at 09.25.41Yes that box of wine that you remember lugging from one student party to another has come back into fashion…literally. Never be the one who forgot to ‘bring a bottle’ with this handy contraption, and if you’re a fashionista its the (ahem) latest in hi-tech fashion…is it a bag, is it a bottle? No its a wine handbag!

Whether you’re gossiping with the girls during a Sex and the City style night-in, or digging your high-heels out of the mud after a debaucherous delightful day at the races; you’ll always be sipping in style.

With it’s distinctly designer-style, the bag looks like it’s come straight off the catwalk. But rest assured that the wine inside is sourced from the finest French wineries (likely located on some preposterously picturesque estate) and more than matches this high-end Wine Handbag.

Whether Red, White or sparkling Rosé, everyone knows that the finest wine comes in a bag.

 

3) Smartskin iPad Condoms

Well… we did pay a lot of money for our iPad…why not erm, protect it?! Screen Shot 2013-05-02 at 09.31.01

You never know when you’ll get lucky… enough to take your iPad to the beach, or on a boat, or cycling in the rain, or driving a rally car, or riding a camel in the desert.

But thanks to the sleek and stretchy Condoms for iPad, you’ll never have to say no to an unexpected bit of iPad excitement again.

Keep them in your wallet for that special situation or emergency occasion, and know that your iPad has protection at a moment’s notice.

NB: iPad and Good Times not included!

 

So there you go, and remember folks this is only the tip of the iceberg. So if you want to be ahead of the game, make sure you head straight to Firefox and get yourself one of the futures must haves 🙂

Happy Shopping!
