The world that we live in today gives us quite the sensory overload; bright colours, gaudy details, and loud presences. In such a world a break is always welcome, and what better way to get so than by everyday appliances. Introducing the tech market’s latest grabs, all of which channel one element: minimalism.

Multitasking is a mark of the millennial, and that’s why we’re particularly drawn to all-inclusive appliances.

Even the R5’s navigation options aren’t limited, what with it having both the Ruark’s trademark RotoDial as well as a radio link remote control, giving the user increased leverage.
