The egg-like speaker, which can be purchased in different colors, uses four 40-millimeter drivers to pull out sound in 360 degrees—and, thanks to a touch-sensitive button on top, you can control music with gestures. Whyd can also start playing your morning or evening playlist, obeying natural voice commands.

If you desire to diversify your playlists, you can download music to the Whyd speaker from a wide range of sources, including Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, AirPlay, GoogleCast, Apple Music, Spotify, Sound Cloud, Google Play and Tidal.

4) Nest Cam is what an indoor security camera should be. With this cutting-edge device, you can keep an eye on what matters when you're out of home. Nest Cam plugs into power, taking away your worries about dead batteries.

Furthermore, you will never miss a thing, as the cam provides 24-7 live streaming and saves up to 30 days of footage in the cloud.

You and your family shouldn't have to constantly track what is going on via an app—when Nest Cam detects conspicuous sounds and moves, it sends a phone alert or an e-mail with an image from the scene. Don't panic if you miss an alert; the Nest app will allow you to view photos of activities from the last three hours.

5) SmartConnect Sleeper, a sweet dream machine from Fisher-Price, is a faithful companion when it comes to looking after children. The smart device can boast automatic rocking motions, music, sounds and vibrations that are controlled via an app downloaded on your mobile phone.
