Virtual reality is the next big thing, but it's not just about visuals. Sound is an important cue for VR storytelling, which is where French company Arkamys comes in.

Belt up! This is Belty, a smart belt that does more than keep your trousers up -- it also measures your activity and vibrates if you've been sitting still for too long.

Wakey wakey, rise and...sniff? The SensorWake alarm clock rouses you from slumber not with a jarring noise but with a scent. Choose from smells including the ocean, lush jungle, a croissant or chocolate.

A successfully funded Kickstarter project, Prizm is a music player that recognises who is in the room and plays appropriate music for who's listening and what time it is. It looks out for the Bluetooth or MAC addresses of the devices in the room and guesses what tune to play accordingly.

A machine that reads your brainwaves or stimulates hair growth?

It's a hair growth stimulator!

This man is obviously braver than me. iGrow, as the product is known, purportedly uses "Low--Level Light Therapy" to bathe your hair cells in light, triggering enhanced cellular activity or something. Look, I have no idea if this works, but it looks like something out of a Roger Corman movie, so I thought I'd include it here.

The Perfect Blend

The Perfect Blend app paired with a smart scale will track the weight of the ingredients you add so that you never have too much or too little, and thus can achieve that...perfect blend. Hah!
