Polycom Poly Studio USB, $949.00

Poly Studio USB is a premium USB video bar built for small rooms and big ideas. Delivering the best audio quality in its class, it blocks distracting sounds that can interrupt meetings. Teams on both ends of the call catch every word. With group framing and automatic speaker tracking, the connection feels personal. They see all the important details, too—right down to body language and facial expressions. Easy to manage? Of course. The cloud-based management tools let you push software updates and make settings changes. It also has an Acoustic Fence, which keeps voices outside the room from interrupting your calls

Niche Zero Grinder, $633.

Niche Zero Grinder has an optimal burr speed, giving you the best grind quality at a quiet 72dB. It also has an interlocking safety lid with an easy to adjust grind dial and cord storage in the base. Current grinders often trap large amounts of coffee in their grind chambers, which makes coffee stale, and the next time you grind coffee, you have a mix of stale coffee. The Niche Zero Grinder’s unique grind path has been developed to retain virtually no grind and give you the freshest grind every time. As well as no retained grind, the Niche Zero Grinder’s unique grind path allows you to use the exact weight of precious beans you need for your next coffee. There is no waste or tainted flavors, which means you can dial in quicker, confident that all your grind matches your chosen settings. Due to the optimum burr speed, your grind also stays cool and full of flavor.  The Niche Zero Grinder has premium 63mm conical burrs, normally only found in commercial, high-end grinders. Combined with the precision step-less grind adjustment, you have complete control over your grind size and its consistency. With virtually no retained grind you can easily change bean type without purging and wasting your beans. Simply move the grind dial to your chosen setting and expertly grind for that brew method, from espresso right through to French press and beyond.

Coral UV 3-in-1 Sanitizer, $149

The Coral UV 3-in-1 Sanitizer is a compact, UV-C sanitizer that provides an effective home-tech solution for limiting germs around you and your loved ones. Our most used items collect the most germs and are the hardest to clean (keys, mouse, fob, headphones, cell phones, TV remotes). The UV 3-in-1 sanitizer is an easy and chemical-free solution for sanitizing and drying everyday items.  Coral UV uses high energy, artificial UV-C ray that breaks down the DNA of bacteria and germs and disrupts their ability to reproduce. Compared to other forms of disinfection, the Coral UV 3-in-1 doesn’t damage materials over time like steam sanitizers, can sanitize items in as little as 10 minutes, and requires minimal maintenance. Coral UV can back up their claims of 99.9% UV-C sanitation with successful tests from accredited institutions. It has a minimalistic design, has a stainless-steel chamber, has replaceable parts and the built-in drying function is convenient for items you might rinse off beforehand, such as water bottles. Coral UV is one of the only sanitizers that have this option.
