No, pal, I’m not losing it. Christmas and New Year are just two months away. And we know well that, during this time relatives and friends usually get together to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, as well as to exchange presents.
To many people, the search for the present are about to start. And if you’re into technology – or have a friend who is – here’s a list of 11 gadgets coming into the market just now.
They’re gadgets that will drive you nuts (trust me on this one). I’m sure that, other than for a present, you’ll want to get one for yourself too. Ready? So, let’s dive into technology.
Do you want to improve your TV experience while watching your favorite movies and shows in high def? This is your TV. The LG 65-Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart OLED TV , features one of the best image qualities in the market today.
One of the main features of this amazing TV is the illuminating OLED pixels that can brighten, dim and power off fully to achieve perfect black. That means, great contrast and the best cinematic look.
I own the 2015 version of this TV and I can’t explain how amazing it is. If you don’t trust my words, make sure to stop by a big tech store and compare this TV to another one side by side. I tell you, there is no comparison to this TV this year. Learn More
The new trend among the techies: virtual reality. Picture this: you put the glasses on and you’ll be taken anywhere you wish in the whole world. Even if you want to be at a Beatles concert, let’s say.
Google comes with this device now. Google Daydream, $80, is different from the other products especially because of the material it’s made of. Lightweight and breathable fabric, making our trips across the Planet much more comfortable.
What is nice about this gadget is that, other than the tourist, you can be the pilot and take part in intergalactic battles or simply fish. All that while sitting comfortably on your sofa. Amazing!
Man, just picture this: a dock station that can also work as a decoration item. This is what Native Union Marble, $ 129.99 came up with. The product is made with solid marble, black or white, your pick.
Plus, it features a back support that allows using the device while connected.
These days we’re always coming across smartphones, tablets and smartwatches crowding us with more and more notifications. Aiming to improve these notifications, the smart wall clock Glance Clock, $ 129, syncs all your devices and just shows you the most relevant notifications, like meeting reminders, new workout at the gym, a notification to let you know Uber has arrived, among others.
This gadget has come to save your time giving you the weather forecast (so you won’t have any trouble picking the right clothes) or to remind you about your friends’ birthdays. If you live a hectic life, this is the right gadget for you.
If you have the latest version of iPhone and love photos, I dedicate this one to you. And that’s simple: the Olloclip iPhone 7 Lenses, $80, enhances your camera’s performance. You can choose among three different sets.
If lenses are your thing, you can get the Core set, which features fisheye, super-wide and macro 15x. The Active set comes with ultra-wide lenses and telephoto 2x. If you pick the Macro set, you may choose the level of optical of magnification you wish – 7x, 14x or 21x.
I’m certain those pictures of your vacation you’re intending to post on Instagram will look even more amazing!
A Special Edition, the camera Leica X Rolf Sachs, $14.950, (which looks quite retro) was designed in partnership with the photographer and artist Rolf Sachs. That’s quite a bold design we’re looking at here. Metal black plates with red rubber elements that resemble a table tennis racquet.
When you buy this version, you get a black hard-shell case to protect your set. Additionally, it includes an SF 40 flash unit, cleaning products as well as a nylon pouch. All that so you’ll feel like a pro.
If you’re crazy about squeeze bottles (to the gym or even to work…) this one is for you. The Waterman line, from $ 19.95, is made with resistant material and comes in six colors.
One of the options is the Canteen, which keeps your drink ice cold or hot for over 12 hours. It is made in stainless steel and you can get it in glossy, brushed or matte finishing.
There’s also the Tumbler, which also keeps your drink ice cold or hot, but for a shorter period of time: nine hours tops. But it’s a great pick in case you want to prepare drinks for a nice party, like New Year, for instance.
And who said we should stop listening to vinyl records? Now it’s possible to listen to your favorite songs on a super contemporary turntable. The Mag-Lev Audio Levitating Turntable, $ 800, really brings the feeling of zero gravity into your home. That’s right! You place the record on the levitating platter which will spin while the needle touches the disc.
When you look at it, it seems like the record is spinning with zero gravity. It’s so so cool! If you’re into technology and just love music, I’m sure this one is already on your list.
Imagine having a dart-shaped drone inside which you can place your GoPro and then just safely throw it in the air? This is what you can expect from Aer GoPro Dart, $ 44. The product is crafted in polypropylene and it allows you to safely place your camera on one end of it and throw it the direction you choose.
This way you’ll be able to take aerial photos and make quite stable videos of nature or any other occasion you wish to record. The best part of it is that it’s totally crash proof once it hits the ground. It’s compatible with GoPro Hero 3+, 4 and 5.
Do you like social networks? If so, are you addicted to Snapchat (I mean, you just can’t go a day without posting a pic or a video)? Because I just know you won’t believe this gadget. The sunglasses Spectacles, $ 130, feature a camera that can make 10-second videos by just pressing a button.
It’s totally wireless and you can send your videos to your smartphone or cloud automatically. Plus, whenever you’re making a video, a light around the camera will illuminate. This way, your friends will be able to tell you’re making a Snap.
So you like to keep an eye on your home? the camera Canary, $ 200, is HD and weatherproof (rain, heat, cold and snow). It features a 360-degree swivel base and sharp images.
As if all that wasn’t enough, it’s also enabled with Wi-Fi, which means there are no cables in the way whatsoever. It also features a high-quality microphone and night vision. As you can imagine, all its images can be accessed on an app.
So have you picked your gadget?
Now it’s totally up to you! I’ve done my part. Choose the gadget you think looks just like you or like your dear friend. Best of luck!
