Samsung Family Hub Refrigerator
Samsung brings the smart home to your kitchen with its new Family Hub refrigerator. Armed with a WiFi-ready 21.5-inch touchscreen, the Family Hub acts as the digital headquarters for your home with StickiBoard and WhiteBoard, a high-tech reimagining of the refrigerator sticky note that sends messages and syncs calendars to users’ smartphones. For food, three tiny cameras let you peek inside so you don’t waste energy with the door open. If there isn’t any food, simply make an order on InstaCart or Groceries by MasterCard. While you’re cooking, Pandora can stream music through the built-in speakers or play wirelessly through Bluetooth. Standard depth, $5,599.99.
Vivaldi Web Browser
Chrome might be the king of desktop browsers, but Vivaldi is looking to change the way you look at the net. The freeware bears many visual similarities to Opera and improves upon its competitor by introducing features more commonly used through extensions on Chrome. Tab stacking lets you group pages by dropping them on each other, and the window can now display multiple web page sections, ingeniously requesting the mobile version of sites to keep the browser clean and readable. Free.
Sony Alpha a6300
A few years ago, Sony made waves in the photography world with the release of the a6000, a mirrorless camera boasting the world’s fastest autofocus. Despite being the size of a point-and-shoot, the camera gave plenty of DSLRs a run for their money. Sony now follows up with an updated model offering a better signal-to-noise ratio, an improved BIONZ X image processor and an even faster autofocus due to a doubling of the amount of phase-detection points of its predecessor. Body only, $1,000.
Amazon Kindle Oasis
After the success of the Paperwhite, Amazon’s new Kindle Oasis makes an ambitious departure in design. Its most expensive model to date measures an inch wider with a slimmer, sleeker design and an asymmetrical bezel on the right side, engineered to let you read with one hand. It feels more like a book thanks to its page turn buttons and 300 ppi e-ink screen. The Oasis comes with a battery case which extends the life to eight weeks, and Amazon’s e-book store is one of the most comprehensive libraries available online. $289.99.
Navigli is Milan’s current “it” neighborhood, a quick tram or train ride from the Duomo, the oft-photographed Quadrilatero della Moda shopping, museums, chain stores and throngs of tourists. While it has the youthful vibe and artist-chic found in formerly industrial neighborhoods in major cities around the globe, it’s not every day you’ll find such a district that has reinvented itself as a Venice that’s wholly defined by the stylish and tech-savvy locals who live, work and play there. It is both photogenic and approachable, while also tapping into the current sustainability zeitgeist.
