Toast of the Town Let's toast to the future (pun intended) with the latest smart toaster by Revolution Cooking. The Revolution InstaGLO is a touchscreen toaster preloaded with algorithms for up to 34 bread types. That includes seven toasting shades and settings for bagels, bread, waffles, pastries, and more. The InstaGLO's sensors will adjust in real time to make sure items are toasted exactly the way you want them and displays a countdown clock so you know exactly when your food will be ready. An adjustable height mechanism means you never have to reach inside the toaster for your item. When you're not toasting, the display screen can be set to show a clock or other timers. Several add-ons make the InstaGLO more than just a toaster, including a panini press for making sandwiches and a warming rack for heating up things like cookies and pizza slices. $399. revcook.com A Mighty Mouse DOCA mixes the magic of phone apps with a smart mouse to simplify your workspace and improve your reach and navigation methods by implementing touch-screen shortcuts. Users can set the shortcuts to applications or even functions within applications such as editing, coloring, and 3D modeling. DOCA employs two force-sensitive buttons to determine if you're using your whole hand to simply move a cursor on your computer or to choose an app or inter-app function. Users can also set these sensitive buttons to act as pressure sensors on certain apps, such as is needed for the brush thickness command on Photoshop. The DOCA Smart Mouse can store shortcut profiles for up to five different computers and can connect via Bluetooth, allowing users to seamlessly switch between computers and tablets. The DOCA will retail for $140 this winter, but it can be preordered now on Kickstarter for $99. Watch the Beat The new Huawei Watch D uses air pressure to take heart monitoring to a new level. The band inflates around the wrist just like a doctor's office sphygmomanometer — that device that straps around your arm and squeezes you — to take accurate blood pressure readings by cutting off your circulation momentarily and measuring the pressure in your arteries as they pump blood during each beat. On top of that, the Huawei Watch D can also administer electrocardiogram (ECG) tests, which check the heart's rhythm and electrical activity (though Huawei warns not to use this feature if you have a pacemaker). Further features include more than 70 workout modes such as running, pedaling, and jumping rope, as well as oxygen monitors and skin temperature readings. $799. consumer.huawei.com BY RYAN THOMAS @ranchandcoast ranchandcoast.com 114 OCTOBER 2022 RANCH & COAST MAGAZINE
