For those looking for something fitness-related, look no further than the Lumen, a device that claims to be the “world’s first portable device to measure, track and analyze your metabolism.” Traditionally, these types of measurements would require a team of nutritionists and/or scientists to analyze, but Lumen asserts that this can now all be done in just three minutes. With a single breath, the breathalyzer analyzes (through a single breath) whether our body is burning fats or carbs for fuel.
A CO2 sensor and flow meter are used by Lumen to determine CO2 concentrations in a breath. The device is connected to an app that provides detailed feedback for the user. As a result, users will be able to indicate what type of fuel their body is currently using (carbs vs. fats). Through tracking metabolism, sleep, nutrition and fitness data, users are then able to determine what adjustments to make according to Lumen’s recommendations.

There’s a good chance you’ve seen the eye-catching ads on Instagram for reMarkable tablets. As people increasingly use tablets and screens for writing and taking notes, the reMarkable restores the classic writing-on-paper feel. In this way, despite replacing notebooks and printed documents, it retains a sense of the old for those who crave or prefer it.
Featuring a paper-like surface for writing and reading, the tablet has no glare or backlight (and is readable in the sunlight). Due to the absence of notifications from social media and apps, the tablet allows you to stay focused, and the only functionality of the Wi-Fi is to sync notes and documents. The reMarkable 2, its latest model, allows users to take handwritten notes, read and review documents and convert handwritten notes to text.
With unlimited pages and folders, you can also properly store and organize all your notes, as well as sync and access your files across different cloud platforms like Google Drive and Dropbox. You can make notes on existing documents and PDFs, and share your tablet into a digital whiteboard and share your ideas on the big screen, amongst other features.
It was six years in the making for the team behind reMarkable to develop technology that mimics the tactile nature and immediate response of paper. It clams to be the “world’s thinnest tablet,” which allows for a more paper-like experience that fits just like a notebook in your bag.
The tablet has a very straightforward and clear objective to accomplish, without any bells and whistles. It’s ideal for those who like to keep things old-school.
