Just because the summer is a time to be outside and enjoying the sun, doesn’t mean that we should take a break from our usual tech obsessions.
Here are five of the coolest summer gadgets around:
5. Hapi Fork
With summer comes picnics, barbecues, and cookouts, so while many say they pack on pounds during the winter, some of us may find it harder to fit into our bathing suits in July than December. The Hapi Fork monitors how quickly you’re eating and alerts you with lights and vibrations to slow down when you're going too fast, helping you eat less and take better care of your body.
This camera/binocular combination is perfect for tons of outdoor activities. Sporting events, bird watching, and just general fun can all be captured from range with this innovative combination product.
While this is the most expensive product on this list by far, the Robomow makes up for its cost with ingenuity and convenience. This outdoor Roomba drives around mowing your lawn while navigating slopes, fences, and walls without you ever having to interact with it, allowing you to go out and do more exciting things!
This tiny “swimmer” packs an enormous sound according to user reviews on Amazon.

This little speaker has a flexible tail for mobile hanging and placement, and can survive being completely submerged in up to one meter of water for up to 30 minutes.

Equipped with four solar panels, the cell can fold and roll up, allowing for easy portability in a backpack or bag. Using nothing more than the power of the summer sun, this affordable cell can fully charge the average smartphone in just 2-3 hours.
