For Christmas, I brought my dad tickets to go to The Gadget Show convention as we're both lovers of everything technical and the show itself. I thought I would put this post together to show you what we got up to and bits of tech that we got from the day.
Below is a video that I've put together from the footage from my GoPro of what we got up to on the day!
We started off looking at the audio area which was right at the start of the convention space. There were hundreds of amazing looking speakers (I really liked the statue ones!) and crazy how some people are coming up with unique ideas for new for speakers in cars and around the house. I was then pulled aside by my dad to take part in the young driver's section of the convention - as you can tell by the video: I can't drive. I wasn't keen on doing it from the start but I queued...and queued...and queued (2 hours of queueing) for a 5 minute drive...Was it worth it? Probably not. But the company who organised it sounds really good and I wish I heard about them sooner! It was like drone city from that part onwards, we watched Parrot drones be controlled by a computer, little drone being flown between crowds and even large ones with cameras to be sent outside for filming projects! After walking around for 6 hours, we went to see the live show with all the presenters comparing tech and showing off some new bits - which was all really fun (I also got a picture with two of them!)
It was such a great day and I definitely reccommend you to attend if you enjoy bits of tech and don't even watch the show! There's so much on offer and it definitely shows a glimpse of the technology which will be the norm in the future!
We couldn't walk away empty handed so we decided to get a couple of gadgets...
It counts steps, miles covered, calorie intake, how many calories you've burned, records my sleep pattern and even analyses my workouts (whenever I get round to doing one!) It's been a real eye opener for me as I have a lot more control on what I eat, persuading me to walk most days to college instead of getting the bus and making me feel a bit more better about myself! I got this for £49.99 and I think it's the best money I've spent (look how pretty the colour is as well!) It can also be removed from its watch strap and it connects to your phone so you can see all your analytics!
