Ah luxury! The very thing most of us fantasize about but only a mere handful of us get to enjoy. In our happy little heads, we’ve owned and cruised in private jets, danced at gorgeous balls, toured the best cities in better cars, and dined with A-listers. Who wouldn’t want to romance luxury?! Then there’s technology. Putting a little of itself into every field and every person’s life, technology is as inescapable as it is useful. Now, put the two together and you’ll find yourself staring at one of the most elite tech/luxury events of the season. We’re referring to none other than The Luxury Technology Show that smoldered New York City just last week. Everything at the show screamed impossible prices and stunning technological progress. From an insane Tesla SUV to speakers that look like fancy potted plants, the event showed off some of the most astonishing tech.
So, without further ado, here’s a look at 4 of the show’s most wowing devices – the beautiful babies of the smashing marriage between luxury and technology!
Ono 3D – The First-Ever Portable Smartphone 3D Printer
While 3D printers are mostly not very portable, the Ono 3D is not just portable, but also brings 3D printing to your phone. All you need to do is start the Ono app, choose a 3D model, pour resin into the Ono’s reservoir, and attach the rest of the device. You’ll soon have a 3D-printed beauty sitting pretty over your smartphone screen!
Vinci Smart Headphones
Among the headphones that strutted their stuff at the show, no other model stood out like the Vinci Smart Headphones. Boasting Alexa integration, these “world’s first intelligent 3D headphones” will play a track for you if you just talk to them. It also comes with a touchscreen on each side – these let you adjust volume and switch between tracks. The hearable even packs Spotify and SoundCloud!
The Raphael Smart Glove
Virtual reality is already captivating. But, when you throw in a smart glove, it becomes mind-blowing. The Raphael Smart Glove provides a series of game-like VR exercises which will help its wearer practice grasping, and finger and palm movements. Although unveiled at The Luxury Technology Show, the glove is aimed at helping those in rehabilitation. Nifty and heartwarming!
LightStim’s LED Bed
Just ordinarily speaking, beds are irresistible. And, smart beds are dreams come true. One such delightful invention is the LightStim LED Bed. This bed can “increase [overall] stamina and performance”, and has been touted by the company as a pain reliever and wrinkle remover as well. With 18,240 LED lights hidden in it, the bed is a miracle of technology. The FDA-cleared bed can even relieve arthritic pain!

Further, even a parking app called DropCar and an instant camera called Lomo’Instant made waves at the NYC show. Seems like luxury and technology are the perfect ingredients for a stunning show in New York City!
