When you are on the move, whether for work, study, or play, there is little worse than running out of juice for your mobile devices. A useful gift is a juice bank, such as the Anker PowerCore 10000, which can be thrown into a bag or suitcase and pulled out when needed to give your smartphone or tablet power on the go.
The Gamer: Just as Apple has creative professionals cornered, Alienware is a dominant force in the gaming industry. Really, if you’re not going to build a custom PC yourself, there’s not much better out there. This one features a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 graphics card, an AC wireless card (for cable-free online gaming), 8 gigs of memory, and a beastly 1 terabyte hard drive.
One of the very best things about a conceptual device is the fact that you can more or less throw in every single bit of technological advancement into the picture, knowing that it does not even have to wait for existing technology and laws of physics to be able to allow it to do so. Vivo has thought of the APEX FullView concept smartphone, which will boast of the world’s very first half-screen in-display fingerprint scanning technology that is merged with other kinds of engineering breakthroughs in its camera, speaker and sensors.
Messages sent over the wireless in the World War II era could be intercepted so the Germans used a cryptographic device. On the surface, the Enigma cipher machine looked like a regular typewriter, but it wasn’t. A keyboard was linked to rotors, powered by an electric current, which transposed every keystroke several times. Corresponding messages went out in Morse code and required keys, which changed daily, to decipher — get it? “De-cipher. ” Which is exactly what the Allies did, cracking a code the Germans thought was unbreakable.
It’s one thing to have a dedicated heat sink and cooling vent for your CPU. But, if you’re talking about high end gaming laptops especially those in the range of 15 and 17 inches, you know that a 2-cooler system simply won’t cut it. What you need is the Tree New Bee’s 4-cooling fan system that’s designed specifically for gaming desktop replacements. Each of these 120 millimeter cooling fans rotates at an amazing 1,200 RPM to help dissipate heat from your laptop. It also comes with anti-skid arms to help secure your laptop onto any surface. It looks amazingly cool, too.
The Briefcase: Crosley gets a bad rap. Sure, they’re a budget record player manufacturer, but their styling is certainly on-point and their gear is a lot more accessible than some of the competition. This handsome briefcase-style turntable is not just a capable player; it also features USB connectivity so you can plug it into your PC or Mac. That means you could feasibly use it to rip your records to digital, if you wanted.

“Just got SleepPhones, which are headphones within a soft fuzzy headband for listening to music/podcasts while you fall asleep. I am literally incapable of falling asleep without a podcast, while my fiancé needs either light music or silence. These are so much more comfortable to wear than earbuds, she can’t hear my podcasts at ALL, and the sound quality is amazing. It’s only been two nights but I love them and have no idea I lived without them, hahah!” —Kathleen M., Facebook

This is a more interesting and more engaging take on the classic and popular social game “Pictionary.” All you need to do is get the answer from under the mannequin’s foot and simply draw or act out the clues on it in order for your friends and guests to figure out what the answer is. It also provides many hours of fun and can, in fact, prove to be a great imagination outlet for children that are still in their development stage.
The Budget: Of course, not everyone is ready to drop more than $500 on a smartphone or pay the ridiculous monthly fees. You also don’t have to. For a fraction of the price you can get a phone with a comparable battery life, a solid processor, and a 5 megapixel camera. And that’s not half bad.
This follow-me robot assistant uses face recognition to identify angry, scrunchy countenances. If it’s a baby it’ll notify you and automatically launch into pacification mode with music, a fan or an audiobook.
There are some practices that we no longer view as a necessity. How many of your friends are expert cooks, blacksmiths, or falconers? The only times we really consider picking up a new skill set is usually in a video game. If you wish you could level up in real life, then picking up some neat skills we usually thought were reserved for spies or characters in fantastical worlds might be just the way to do it.

Okay so it doesn’t actually “fly” but Enata’s made-to-order Foiler Flying Yacht comes pretty close. It’s an ultra-luxe 32-foot, 8 passenger vessel with retractable foils that lift the hull up out of the water to cruise on a cushion of air. It’s powered by a pair of 320hp BMW engines as well as a pair of Enata Torpedo electric engines that combine to give it a top speed of 74 MPH.
Best prices I\’ve seen and super quick delivery. The default language & user manual are in Eastern European so I had to reset the phone and download a manual I can understand. Otherwise great product and service.

When you think of a lighter, usually products from Zippo and Bic brands flash in your mind. Of course, those all use a liquid fuel that either needs to be replenished, or you just have to buy a new lighter. It would be nice if we could just plug our lighter in instead of using butane, but if there’s not enough reason for us to do so, we’ll likely stay with the same ole ball and chain since we’re used to it.
…because when you’re down to the wire you’re going to need a little help. Time to get creative! Ho ho huh? With dozens of people to buy for, there’s always going to be someone who you inadvertently forget. Don’t worry, there’s still some time to place that order on or run to that store. […]

Drone news at CES so far has been weird. GoPro announced it was done making drones completely after its Karma drone suffered technical issues that hampered sales. DJI introduced some rather awesome looking handheld stabilization systems for cameras and smartphones (called gimbals). And now Yuneec has introduced a trio of new drones that cater to curious pieces of the market.
It’s not just a cool-looking voice assistant like the Amazon Echo and countless others. The Pebble’s twist: Melody, your guide, can recognize voices and change its activities based on the individual who’s talking. Plus, it really is an assistant, with the ability to manage your calendar.

Whether you’re loing to buy a humidor for yourself or are loing to gift one (or two) for someone else (like Father’s Day, Christmas or your […]
It is no wonder that rechargeable batteries are in greater demand these days. Non-rechargeable batteries are useless once their output is gone, you have to buy more and more once these batteries run out of energy, disposal is problematic due to environmental concerns,…
