What were the gadgets that got us going and those that should not have made it to shelves? Nafisa Akabor rounds them up.
Google Home Mini
Smart speakers may still be in their infancy stages in South Africa but the Google Home Mini is a useful and nifty little gadget. As voice services become ubiquitous, the Home Mini will replace a browser, laptop or smartphone for Google Search. It also serves as an educational tool for the younger crowd and can be used to listen to audio books. And who doesn’t love switching their lights on or off by a single voice command, or controlling music playlists? It plays nicely with additional smart gadgets around the house, making the possibilities endless.
