In 2022, Dyson, a well-known brand synonymous with innovative and excellence in home appliances, announced the launch of its first-ever headphones, the Dyson Zone. However, these noise-canceling headphones are not just any ordinary headphones—they come with a mask that covers the nose and mouth to keep dust particles away.
As you stroll down a busy street amidst the noise of honking carsand dust particles flying around you, the Dyson Zone headphones will be filtering the air that you breathe in. The headphone uses compressors to draw air through a dual-layer filter that capture and remove up to 99% of unwanted particles and pollutants. The removable visor projects the purified air straight into your nose and mouth, providing you with a cleaner and safer listening experience even in the most polluted environments. To ensure optimal performance, Dyson’s accompanying app will send reminders for filter replacement.
The Zone, priced at US$949, will be available for pre-order by appointment only through Dyson stores starting in March 2023.

Gone are the days when we need to use multiple products or shell out big bucks for professional microblading services to achieve our desired brow look. With cosmetic giant L’Oréal’s Brow Magic, you can create a personalized eyebrow look based on your natural brow shape and facial features all from the comfort of your home with just the push of a button!
Using augmented reality, the Brow Magic app scans your face and displays various eyebrow shapes, thicknesses and effects. After selecting a desired look, you can easily apply the makeup by swiping the handheld electronic brow makeup applicator across your brows for easy and precise application. The best part? It can be easily removed with makeup remover.
This innovative device uses Bluetooth to pull tattoo images from your phone and prints the makeup through 2,400 tiny nozzles with a 1,200 dpi resolution. The applicator features two sensors—an optical sensor and a pressure sensor—to ensure precise delivery of the cosmetic-grade ink.
While the pricing has not yet been announced, L’Oréal plans to release the Brow Magic in 2023.

Lockdowns and social distancing measures may have kept loved ones apart, but a Chinese start-up Siweifushe is bridging the gap with their bizarre yet intriguing invention. Introducing MUA, the long-distance kissing machine that brings long-distance couples closer together no matter the distance. With this innovative device, you can now share a kiss with your significant other from miles away.
To use the MUA, you must download a dedicated smartphone app and pair it with their kissing machine, which resembles a portable stand with colorless, pursed lips sticking out from the front. Once you kiss the device, the kissing machine utilizes motion sensors in the silicon lips to capture and transmit kiss data, which can be replayed on the receiving end. Besides the sound capturing and replaying capabilities, it can even warm itself up during use to simulate a more genuine experience.
The kissing machine was launched in January 2023 at a price of CNY260 (approx US$38) and has already gained significant popularity. In just two weeks, the startup sold over 3,000 units and received 20,000 orders, showcasing the ingenuity of modern technology to connect people in unprecedented ways.

In a world where gaming laptops are constantly pushing the limits of size and power, one couple has taken it to the extreme with their latest creation. Meet the 100-pound, 43-inch gaming laptop designed and built by the dynamic duo of YouTubers Evan & Katelyn.
This powerful laptop is fitted with massive 150W batteries to power its large screen, mini PC and other hardware components. Evan and Katelyn have opted for the low-consumption mini PC Intel NUC 11, which is powerful despite its small form factor. Additionally, they have added RGB LED lighting on all sides to give the final build a visually impressive touch.
Constructed using two large plywood sheets and metal sideplates, the laptop is an impressive feat of engineering, though its 100-pound weight and unwieldy size limit its usefulness for everyday activities. Furthermore, it requires a pad to rest it on when used as a laptop, further limiting its practicality.
Innovation in technology is never dull, and 2023 was no exception. From kissing machines to massive gaming laptops, entrepreneurs and tech enthusiasts have continued to push the boundaries of what is possible. While some of them may seem odd or impractical, they are a testament to the creative and quirky ways that technology can be used to enhance our lives. These inventions are not just novelties; they offer real solutions that make our lives easier and more connected. As we move forward into the future, it’s exciting to imagine the possibilities that lay ahead and the impact they will have on our lives.
