When talking about interesting gadgets for women, we usually think about that gizmo which dries nail polish, don’t we? Living in a world where technology sets the trends not only in space exploration, medicine, data processing or communication, but also in fashion, style, home improvement and quality of daily living, we must open our eyes and see what’s out there. When it comes to gadgets for women, this stopped being a man’s world for a little while now, as women do benefit from some odd, even useless tools and toys to have around. But if you think the Acer Aspire R7, although it is considered the weirdest laptop in the world, looks funny, then we suggest you should visit a CES event, as this years competitors for the “weirdest gadgets of 2013” made a riot among visitors and critics. Still, coming back to the woman’s world, things are pretty clear: women understand technology, they use it, they build careers on it and some of them can master the most hi-tech Android device with the same grace and efficiency they make an omelet in the morning. So nobody wonders anymore why manufacturers produce some exclusively gadgets for women and if they are still on the market, it means at least some women are buying. So let’s take a sneak peek around women’s houses, offices, purses and wardrobes and see what interesting devices we can find.
10 Most Interesting Gadgets For Women
1. The Anti-Wrinkle Glasses
These may be one of the most dubious and scientifically debatable gadgets for women, but the silicone rubber glasses, which go by the name of Mejikara have, of course, found their own fan base. If you think about it, the idea isn’t that wrong: instead of wasting time and money and become a slave to the cosmetic industry, trying all new and old products, why don’t women just put these glasses on and keep them for five minutes? The producers say they are provided with some protuberances that massage the skin around the eyes, nose and forehead, making thus the wrinkles to fade. While cosmetics still benefit from a wide-world popularity, especially the ones based on natural elements or the home-made skin beauty products women seem to turn to more and more, the anti – wrinkle glasses are cheap and come in many sizes. Who knows if in the next ten years they won’t win the beauty market?

2. The Nail Printer
This might actually work. Do you know how hard it is to take care of a manicure? Paint the nails, polish them, cut them, go to a parlor and pay money, make an appointment for that… Having their nails done became more and more of an effort than a pleasure for busy women and for those who can’t take care of this matter properly on their own. Oh, and if you think this machine falls in the “Not Another Chinese Invention” category, we will officially let you know that a certain nail printer model, going by the name of Tat’z Nail’z was presented during the CES 2013 event. This little piece of pro-woman attitude has USB port for transferring images directly onto the nails and uses none other than HP cartridges for a printing autonomy of almost 10.000 nail prints each. And let’s face it, ladies and gentleman, from a simple, uni nail polish to a printed image… think about it… technology is this year’s fashion designer.

3. The Transparent Glass Toaster
You might think this device was designed for men, as women basically know by experience and educated guesses when the toast is done and how to program the machine to toast the bread properly. No offense, gentlemen! This gadget was beautifully designed and smartly marketed by The Future™, becoming a very interesting product in terms of kitchen appliances. Maybe toasting bread does need a careful setting of the timer and some attention focus for it not to burn. In this context, the glass toaster can become a busy woman’s very good friend, as she will have complete control over the exact time when she considers the bread is perfectly done. Match this to other home improvement devices and modern appliances and you will soon find that women’s life in the kitchen got a lot easier.
4. The Light-Up Purse
You may have heard about this since 2005, so the concept is not very new. What is bizarre about the woman purse that gets lit-up on the inside when it is opened, is that now it comes as a luxury product and may cost even $ 1000 a piece. But don’t fret, as you may find light-up purses in cheaper stores. The main idea is that a woman’s purse is somewhat of a mysterious jungle that nobody can figure out, handle or get out alive from, not even women. So if you come back home late and it is dark and you can’t grasp your keys, but use your cell phone as an improvised lantern, while you found the same lipstick for the fifth time in a row, the light-up purse is something to consider. It is strange to open a purse and get all flashed by some blue or red light, but in case of emergency, the purse might come in handy.
5. The PlayStation – Massage Vest
You thought this gadget was designed for men. Because women complained too much about their partners being so drawn into gaming and not giving them any attention or any care at all, so some people actually thought about “How to get the men to still play and the women to be kept happy?”. The key-point here is women-happy. The Massage Me Video Controller should have been further tested on focus groups concerned with successful couple therapy techniques, but until such results are made public, all we can say is that its creators, Mika Satomi and Hannah Perner-Wilson did an awesome job on strengthening couple relationships. Women get their massage and, most importantly, they will somehow look over the fact that their partner keeps playing just a little bit too much…
6. The Vitamin C Shower Filter
Ok, this is serious. For women, at least, as so far, few men wondered exactly how the Vitamin C enters their skin pores during shower, making it look firmer, preventing wrinkles and even helping the hair to get more manageable? Joke and teasing aside, the Vitamin C Shower Filter is a gadget that got even the authorities’ attention, not because Vitamin C can turn your bathroom shower into a fountain of youth, but because it can remove 99% of free chlorine and 99% of chloramines in the water. Why is this interesting for women? Despite the obvious, some of them have babies. And no mother out there who knows that running water can harm the baby’s skin and affect his health on a long term will think twice before getting one.
7. The Chinese Sauce Sticks
Back to the kitchen, ladies! In terms of kitchen appliances, manufacturers seem to invent every day more and more interesting gadgets for women. Say you like Chinese food and you order it from your favorite restaurant or you cook it yourself. Eating with sticks can be a fun and tricky experience but usually after enjoying the meal, most poeple throw away the disposable sticks. Well… some manufacturers thought about it and came up with quite an interesting idea: how about some Chinese food sticks that can be filled and refilled with your preferred sauces and dips? Vinegar in one, soy sauce in the other, maybe? Not many women actually give the sticks so much importance, as it is equally easier to pour the sauce over the food, but in terms of gadgets for women, how much is too much anyway?
8. The Lock – It Mug
Sick and tired of going everyday to the office and find your coffee or tea mug was again mooched, used, left unwashed, put some place else? Nothing bothers a woman more than to find her office mug in the hands of another colleague. In the corporate jungle, where everybody seems to suspect the others for conspiracies, having a mug of your own may induce a nice, belonging feeling to the job. However, what can you do to prevent your coffee cup to be secretly and despicably used by someone else? You get the Lock – it mug. It has something that can be considered a key. If you plug it in, the liquid stays in. If you leave home after the office hours with the said key, you will leave any potential perpetrator with a mug having a quite large hole in it. This anti-theft mug is quite cute and popular and made women feel at ease about their coffee and their hygiene.
9. The Bottom Cushion
Sitting in the office all day? No time or mood for engaging in sport activities after work? Keeping a diet but worried about your sedentary way of life? A group of Taiwan plastic surgeons thought about women all over the world, worried about their bottoms not getting enough exercise and came up with the remodeling cushion. It is a memory foam pillow that can be used in the office or at home and which, or at least this is what they say, it will remodel your bottom just the way you wish. This cushion definitely asks for some attention, as it may ruin the business of plastic surgeons everywhere. No sports? No lipo? What were the Taiwanese thinking?
10. USB Aroma Diffuser
The age of fireplaces and fire candles is so gone! And if we can have ethanol fireplaces, we can have scented bedrooms, offices and spaces too. You just plug one (or more) of these oil diffusing gadgets in your laptop and there you have it! An aromatic candle simulator fireproof, safe, pleasantly looking and quite smart if you think about it. Forget about bar candles and incense sticks, this USB powered gadget is the future. Because we said it and will say it again: technology sets the trends even in romance. No, seriously, they are quite useful in office buildings, cabinets and houses that present too much of a danger to play with fire into.
