Hiku Shopping Button
If I had to think of a product I’ve bought recently that has most improved my life, the Hiku Shopping Button would be one of the first to come to mind. We all know how annoying it is to do a mental checklist of the items you need at the grocery store, write them down, and then go find them. This solves that problem. Use the Hiku to scan the item you want to remember to buy, and it will start making a list for you. Then when it’s time to go to the store, you have everything you scanned neatly organized. The Hiku recognizes for voice to make to add items to the list with your voice, it sticks to your fridge with a magnet, and it connects to any online store to make shopping even easier. I wish I had one of these years ago.
