If, like us, you're terrible at gardening, then you'll like the sound of this: a plant pot that monitors the health of your shrub, automatically waters it when it needs some sustenance, and tells you when you need to move it into and out of the sun. This is everything that the new Parrot Pot does, and it'll even tell you exactly how your plant is surviving over Bluetooth.

Parrot's Zik 2.0 headphones were the headphones to buy last year if you wanted the holy trinity of active noise cancelling, Bluetooth and a rechargeable internal battery. Now there's a new version in the Zik 3, which will be out in Australia from the end of this month, adding a few nifty new features like wireless charging.

How do you make a pair of headphones smart? Well, you give them their own app and Bluetooth, with the ability to adjust the intensity of noise cancelling, alter an onboard equaliser to tailor bass and treble to any song you might desire, or to download an artist setting to best suit their discography. Oh, and you make them sound excellent.

And that's exactly what has happened here. Parrot has tweaked, redesigned and redefined the already good original Zik into a very good pair of headphones.

Parrot's Zik 2.0 headphones are an impressive set of headgear, and with the Zik Sport, Parrot has done everything in its power to cram all of their power into a a small package. They're down to 70 grams from 270 grams, plus now they're swearproof and ergonomically designed for your run. That in itself is rad, but Parrot has also loaded the headphones with a a battery of biometric tracking features targeted directly at the athlete.
