New Toy of the Day Today

Heading to the gym everyday can be a burden, not to mention the cost associated with going to classes and the like. Over the last year, we’ve seen a resurgence of at-home fitness equipment as new and innovative products like Peloton have hit the market. The ability to enjoy class-style workouts without leaving your home certainly has appeal.

A new at-home workout system is following that model with one of the more intriguing designs we’ve seen in recent memory. The new Tonal Home, a wall-mounted workout machine, looks like a modern piece of technology but easily transforms into a weight-resistance training system. Oh, and that immersive display is pretty sick too.

Amazon’s Dash Replenishment Service arrived on the scene back in 2015 as a way to simplify your life. It was designed for manufacturers to integrate with various products, automatically re-ordering supplies such as ink for printers when needed. To date, the response has been somewhat lukewarm.

After that, third-party developers have been rather slow to jump on this service. A new product from WePlenish offers to automate the grocery buying experience by leveraging Amazon’s API in a new organizer. Whether it’s coffee or snacks, this smart pantry device eliminates those sad moments when the cupboard is bare.
