Three Cool Gadgets


This week we finally installed the circuitry to enable my smart water faucet, so I thought it was a great time to walk around the house and share some of my favorite gadgets.

Here are three techy gadgets that I love.

One: Pix Backpack

When I wear this backpack out and about, people follow me around because it’s animated! The Pix Backpack lets you change the display from an app. I do fun emojis, animated GIFs and, more importantly, special messages to the people I’m meeting.

Two: Elgato Stream Deck

The gadget I use to add special visuals and fun sound effects to my presentation can also be used as the dashboard and navigation tool for your entire computer. My brilliant colleague Robert Kennedy III is best at it.

Three: Delta VoiceIQ Faucet

Well, I’m really not sure if I need this, but I bought it. This faucet works with your smart speaker so you can say, “Alexa, tell Delta to turn on my water” with Delta’s VoiceIQ Faucet.
