Samsung brings the smart home to your kitchen with its new Family Hub refrigerator.

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.

After the success of the Paperwhite, Amazon’s new Kindle Oasis makes an ambitious departure in design.

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.
