Kill Boredom with These 5 Gadgets that is not your Smartphone

12 October 2018 | Jillian Cheong

Smartphones have become part of our extended self, so much so that we sometimes spend hours on it without realizing. If you want some time away from your smartphone, you can opt for these 5 gadgets instead!

Nintendo Switch

The Nintendo Switch is one of the most versatile game consoles in the market. Whether if you wish to play it on-the-go or on a split screen with a bunch of your friends, the Nintendo Switch does it all. It also has an amazing line-up of games from Nintendo as well as 3rd party game developers. I highly recommend Overcooked 2 which can really test your relationship with your family and friends.

Kindle Paperwhite

If you’re the type of person who values their alone time, you can kill time by doing some old fashion reading, but on a Kindle Paperwhite. There are many features on this e-reader such as the built-in dictionary. Simply lookup the meaning of an unfamiliar word and you’ll instantly get the definition for it. This is a great way to improve your vocabulary while you enjoy your favourite book.

Apple HomePod

Too lazy to read a book? Why not listen to the audio version of it on the Apple HomePod! An alternative to listening to an audio book is to listen to podcasts. The Apple HomePod also allows users to create a playlist so that you can listen to your favourite podcasts or songs while you work or do chores. Aside from listening to audio, the Apple HomePod enables users to control smart-home devices such as televisions, light bulbs, cameras, doors and many more!

Sony PlayStation 4 Pro

Enjoy immersive gaming on the PS4 Pro with resolutions that can go up to as high as 4K. The resolution on it is what sets the PS4 and the PS4 Pro apart. If you wish to up your gaming experience, you can hook your PS4 Pro to the PlayStation VR.

Nintendo 3ds

Albeit small, the Nintendo 3ds display is impressive and comes with a resistive touch-screen display, just like the other devices under the DS family. Other than gaming, the Nintendo 3ds comes with three cameras – one front camera and two rear cameras. These cameras are able to snap up any photo in 3D!
