Withings Home CameraWithings, creator of wireless smart devices centered around health, has an interesting HD camera called Home for use in, well, your home. On the surface the design is a little more appealing then most home automation cameras we find on the market today with a wood grain finish, but it has a few extra features not common in your run-of-the-mill home-monitoring.

For starters, its got a 5 megapixel HD camera that can record video and take still pictures, and connects via WiFi to be viewed through a mobile app. It also has motion and noise sensors and will send a short video of the current happenings to a server in the cloud when these events occur. So, not too far off of the standard yet.

Withings WiFi Body Scale sends your weight to your iPhoneThe Withings scale has a sleek and stylish look along with WiFi functionality. The latter will beam your weight and body fat measurements to a web dashboard that can be accessed using a free iPhone app. This way you can track your measurements to help motivate yourself.

It even has “ideal” values that you can try to live up to. Somehow, we think that if you are not motivated enough get fit without this thing, than this isn’t going to do much except get you down. And at $183, it’s hard to get motivated to even buy this.
