Described as an all-in-one indoor vertical growing system, Gardyn lets you grow more than 30 kinds of plants in your home with minimal effort. That’s thanks to Kelby, a “smart Gardyning assistant” which alerts you when your plants need water or light and if they’re ready to be harvested. Gardyn ships with a selection of 30 different plants, ranging from basil to kale and cherry tomatoes, and you can expect your first harvest within 4–5 weeks. After that, simply order more seeds via the app and enjoy 100 percent organic, GMO-free produce you’ve grown yourself. From $899.


These noise-canceling cans from Sony are highly regarded for great sound quality, top-notch noise canceling and strong battery life. Sound is crystal-clear thanks to LDAC audio technology, which transfers three times as much data as normal Bluetooth audio and brings sound quality close to that of a wired connection. The noise- canceling capabilities are customizable in the accompanying app, which means you can still hear announcements if you’re in transit. Also enjoy smart features such as Speak-to-Chat, which automatically pauses music playback when you speak, and compatibility with Alexa and Google Assistant. $349.99.


Let this robot vacuum take care of the cleaning while you make the most of the better weather. With automatic dirt disposal and self-charging, you can forget about the Roomba i7+ for up to two months, so you won’t have to think about vacuuming at all. However, in an emergency you can call the Roomba i7+ via your smart assistant or the iRobot Home app. Robot vacuums keep getting better, and this one is iRobot’s best effort yet, with customizable cleaning schedules and customizable maps of your home. $799.99.


Premium laptop users who prefer Windows will be happy to hear LG released an updated version of its ultra-light Gram series. Available in 14-, 16- and 17-inch versions, even the largest laptop is thinner than most magazines and weighs just 1.35 kilograms. The first Gram series was lauded for its design but criticized for lackluster performance, rectified this time around with 11th Gen Intel Core processors and beefed-up specs all around. From $999.99.

Overwhelming local response and Sfez winning the 2018 Lobster Roll World’s Championship title in Portland, Maine, solidified him as a Paris restaurateur and one of France’s hottest culinary stars.
