Once again, this year’s hot gifts are tech gadgets. These include wearable tech, cameras for the active, virtual reality, personal assistants, smart home appliances and here is some of my Top Picks:
Amazon Echo: Amazon brings audio into the smart-home age with the $179.99 Echo speaker. The Echo connects to the Internet and taps into Amazon’s universe of services to become a personal assistant that helps you shop; a know-it-all with sport, traffic and weather info; and a DJ when you’re not sure what to listen to. Amazon didn’t skimp on the sound quality, either; the Echo compares favorably to other speakers that cost about the same. But with a few key features missing, such as a stand-alone battery, the otherwise impressive Echo isn’t for everyone.
Go Pro Hero+ Cams: ERO+ captures immersive 1080p60 video and 8MP photos and features Wi-Fi and Bluetooth for connecting to the GoPro App and Smart Remote. The GoPro App lets you control your camera remotely, preview shots, play back content and create short video clips for easy sharing. Waterproof to 131’ and packed with user-friendly camera modes, HERO+ is the perfect entry-level GoPro for those who want high-quality capture and on-the-go connectivity.
Samsung Gear VR: Mobile virtual reality is finally here. Watch movies in your own private cinema, be at the center of your favorite games, and socialize with friends in a virtual world all your own. The lightweight design and intuitive touchpad drop you right in the action and allow for hours of immersive entertainment.
Ninja Coffee Bar Brewer: Ninja Coffee Bar Brewer with Glass Carafe: The best coffeehouse in town is on your countertop with the Ninja Coffee Bar brewer. Ninja’s patent-pending brewing technology is designed to deliver delicious coffee with variable richness levels and without bitterness. Well that’s all great but can it brew?
Classic Brew, Rich Brew, Over Ice Brew and Specialty Brew. Make a variety of delicious hot, iced and frozen blended coffeehouse-style drinks
