Here are the tech products we’re most excited about in 2024.

If you believe big-screen televisions are just humongous black eyesores, the LG Signature OLED T 4K TV is here to blow your mind. Using mind-blowing transparent OLED technology, LG has created a television that essentially disappears when powered off. It sounds like we’ll have to be mindful of how we decorate the walls behind our TVs from now on.

Content creators, rejoice. Belkin will release a truly revolutionary product this year. Place your phone on the Belkin Auto Tracking Stand Pro, and once you begin recording video, the stand automatically tracks your movements, in effect giving you a private camera operator! While it won’t set the world on fire with innovation, this product still fills a niche and will bring many smiles worldwide.

3. XGIMI HORIZON Max 4K Projector

Home theater buffs have plenty to be excited about in 2024, and it all stems from the upcoming release of the XGIMI HORIZON Max 4K Projector. The device’s premise is simple: It aims to bring theater-quality movies to your home. This 4K projector is IMAX Enhanced certified, putting local movie theaters to shame. It will be a must-purchase for any homeowner serious about movie night.

4. Swarovski Optik AX Visio

I’m surprised how long it took for a tech company to create high-end, artificial intelligence-powered smart binoculars. Swarovski leads the pack in 2024 with the Optik AX Visio. Besides boasting unparalleled lens quality, the integrated AI promises to instantly identify thousands of animal species. How cool is that? However, at nearly $5,000, this pair of binoculars will be coveted only by the most bird-obsessed tech fans.

5. Samsung Music Frame

Samsung’s Frame televisions have recently taken living rooms by storm, and in 2024, music fans can join in on the fun. Armed with an array of woofers, tweeters, and AI-powered audio processing, the Samsung Music Frame can be placed anywhere in a home (where it looks like a piece of art). It’s an elegant, tech-forward way for audiophiles to modernize their homes.

6. EcoFlow DELTA Pro Ultra

With the weather being as unpredictable as ever, it’s nice to have peace of mind if your home loses power for an extended period. Enter the EcoFlow DELTA Pro Ultra, an efficient, whole-home battery backup system. The specs are impressive — 6kWh capacity with a total 7200W output — which has the potential to power an entire house in case of an emergency. To further entice buyers, the DELTA Pro Ultra includes solar power recharging for further convenience.

It’s about time barbecue grills got innovative technology. In terms of convenience, there’s nothing better than controlling your heater, stovetop, air conditioning, or other appliances via a smartphone app. Summit’s FS38X Smart Grill will be released with modern features that make grilling nearly effortless. In addition, the grill’s oversized color touchscreen will make hands-on grilling more straightforward. As someone who dreams of being an expert griller, this product is right up my alley.

8. GE Profile Smart Indoor Smoker

Just a few years ago, experts said indoor smokers were dangerous and unnecessary. Apparently, nobody told General Electric. In 2024, one of the most recognizable American appliance companies will release the GE Profile Smart Indoor Smoker, much to the delight of all fans of smoked meat. While smoking meat often triggers the smoke alarm unless it occurs outdoors, this innovative indoor smoker utilizes modern technology to bring your favorite cooking method to the comfort of the kitchen.

Laptops are one of the most essential pieces of tech for workers on the go, and Asus has finally come to its senses with the Zenbook Duo UX8406, which features not one but two screens. It doesn’t get any cooler than that. Think how much more productive you can be. The latest iteration in the company’s Zenbook line promises max performance. The dual OLED screens boast up to 3k resolution and high refresh rates to maximize your money’s worth.

10. Lockly Visage

Smart locks have been gaining traction in the home security market. Lockly looks to take the technology to the next level with facial recognition. With the Lockly Visage, the tech company promises seamless entry into your home. Don’t worry, though. More traditional entry methods like PIN codes, NFC, and fingerprint scanning will be available in addition to the high-tech facial scanning approach. It’s crazy. This technology would’ve been laughed out of the building just a few years ago.

11. Garmin HRM-Fit

As one of the fitness tracker industry leaders, Garmin will introduce a female-focused tracker called the HRM-Fit in 2024. This clip-on tracker is designed to be placed on the bottom of a person’s sports bra, where its proximity to the heart will improve tracking heart rate and blood pressure. For women tired of wearing cumbersome fitness bands or watches, the HRM-Fit is the solution to some of their comfort problems.

This exciting tech product takes a traditional pet door and adds a welcome innovation to make your and your furry friends’ lives even better. Pawport is a smart pet door that attaches to existing pet doors. Thanks to a smart tag that your pet wears around their collar, the door will open and close when your pet approaches it. It’s an excellent replacement for the “flap” pet door that’s so 2023.

The Celestron Origin Intelligent Home Observatory is exactly what its name implies. It’s a smart telescope system that will transform how you look at the night sky. You can instruct this telescope to search for specific objects and constellations. It will automatically find the search subjects and uses artificial intelligence to ensure the most precise possible picture. Astronomy fans are excited about this product.

Even beauty companies are getting in on modern technology this year. L’Oreal’s Airlight Pro brings infrared technology and efficient internal motors to dry hair without risking long-term damage. My girlfriend will appreciate a product like this. She complains that her hair gets damaged when using other high-end dryers if she runs out of hair protectants.
