The Modular: Nest’s products aren’t quite as geared toward external connectivity as they are to making your home a safer and more comfortable space. But what they do offer is very capable. They make security cameras, a self-programming thermostat, and smoke/carbon monoxide alarms that can all sync with your smartphone or self regulate.

“I got this humidifier that can attach to any water bottle and it’s the most amazing thing I’ve ever purchased. I use it during the winter when the heating system makes the air in my bedroom extremely dry at night. I’ve had it for four winters now and I love it!” —mandyciampa

Even in our own homes, it’s amazing how many toxins and chemicals (and dust, of course) can be found in the air around us. It’s actually terrifying, so I recommend you don’t Google any of the statistics. With that being said, one of the cool gadgets for men (and women) that we love is this Awair Smart Air Quality Monitor. It analyzes the air quality around you, monitoring things like carbon dioxide, toxic chemicals, and dust, as well as temperature and humidity (although, admittedly, you don’t really need the two latter since those are things you can typically just feel). Still, it hooks up to an app on your smartphone, and will send you alerts when the quality of air changes. It’s like a high-tech carbon dioxide monitor that also does a ton of other monitoring for you. And, it has an LED on the front for a quick snapshot of the air quality around you. Want to impress your friends with a futuristic-looking gadget? The Awair monitor is a great choice.

At the press of a button, it can emit an instant 100KV electric shock from every one of its surfaces, incapacitating anybody who is trying to mess with it. This is coupled with a loud, piercing alarm allowing you locate your case quickly.
