So today we’ve got a whole array of gadgets that I think you’ll find both interesting and very useful. Without further ado sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.
1. NRG 3.0
First up we’ve got the nrg 3.0, some of the most inexpensive earphones that are actually made of real wood. And for the most part that looks really good. You can feel the quality in your hands but unfortunately it whilst I’d say the heads look really nice, the cables a little bit less. So coming with these rather unusual colors and also they are not anti-tangle. The earphones do come with their own pouch which goes nicely with the wooden theme. And they have a mic and remote built-in which is always a plus point. When it comes to sound the first thing you’ll notice is they have really good isolation. Aside from that detail is good, bass is very good but unfortunately sometimes you can
Notice that the treble feel a bit compressed.
2. Super Clean
Next up we have super clean. A miraculous little putty that when rolled over objects can not only remove dirt, removing purities but also completely disinfect them. And because the way it works there’s a lot of areas that this can reach which very few other cleaning products can.
3. Yeelight Bulb
Next we have possibly the best first step into owning your own smart item. This is the xiaomi yeelight bulb. It is a well built high quality that most importantly very inexpensive smart bulb. Considering the competition this is less than half the price. It’s as simple as downloading the ios or android application. Connecting it up with your bulb and starting just like you can with philips hue or other equivalents. You can connect many many bulbs and control them simply by swiping your finger across the screen.
4. Toilet Light
This next one is going to catch you by surprise a little. But essentially it’s an led that you fit under your toilet seat and it’ll create awesome looking glow coming out of the toilet. Whilst it does look really cool it’s not just a gimmick. Built into this we have a motion sensor which means that whenever it’s dark and you walk past the light will switch on. Actually guide you towards the toilet so how’s a practical use as well as just looking awesome.
5. Blitzwolf F3
Next up the blitzwolf f3 and it is a complete steal. It’s got this badass rugged design language its shock-resistant and it’s ipx5 water-resistant. But even more importantly the sound coming out of this completely defies its portable form factor.
6. Lamicall Stand
So then we’ve got one of my favorite phone stands. Now this is one that’s been very carefully designed in a lot of interesting ways. But first of all it’s got a nice metal finish its weighty, feels premium and it’s also got grips lined in not only the inside but also the bottom. To ensure that not only your phone doesn’t move but also the grip itself. It’s got a hole at the back so you can wire your phone’s cable through it.
This is formcard handy pocket-sized card of meltable bioplastic. That you can use to make, fix, and modify the world around you. You can mold it quickly and simply to make little solutions to everyday problems. When its cool, its really strong like nylon so you can make solid durable solutions with it. Then you can reheat it, again and again, to adapt and change and reuse it. Because it’s handy card size you can keep one in your pockets, wallet, kitchen drawer or toolbox.
8. BedJet V2
Introducing the bed jet, the world’s first ultra-rapid cooling heating and climate control system, made just for your bed. The bed jet uses revolutionary direct convex air technology sending air directly into your bedding. To provide quiet and luxurious cooling and heating comfort. Use the bed jet on any size bed, any type of mattress and install under the bed in just minutes. Control your comfort via a wireless remote or our bluetooth smartphone app. Just press a button to cool off instantly with a dry and refreshing room-temperature breeze through the sheets. Or warm your bedding to that toasty just out of the dryer feeling and only 180 seconds.
This elusive alarm clock is a dream for those who have trouble waking up. When the time comes to get up the device starts to sound stridently. It is possible to turn off the alarm for a minute but if you don’t wake up in that time. The device will start to sound like a siren and it’ll run away from its place. The alarm clock will hit the walls and changes direction. To turn it off you’ll have to get out of bed and reach for it. We’re sure that after so much hustle and bustle you will not go back to sleep. Especially after having done some exercise.
10. Family Hub
How should the best refrigerator in the world look like? This device is the best of its kind. Its main feature is that it’s the world’s first intelligent refrigerator ready to make your life easier. In addition to a large number of spacious compartments and functions to conserve products. This refrigerator has an information panel, similar to a mini-computer. Thanks to it, your refrigerator can be synchronized with any mobile device. With its help, you can control other gadgets, surf the internet, buy products and do many other things.
11. Nanoleaf Aurora
What would become of us without beauty? This is what the creators of this particular lamp thought. It is a bit difficult to call this device a lamp. Nano leaf aurora is a series of triangular led panels capable of distilling lights of different colors. The panels can be attached to the wall, the ceiling, the furniture or the floor or any surface. The basic set has 30 segments the owner can create with them the design they prefer. Lamps are controlled and configured with a mobile device the diversity of modes of this device is incredible.
12. Music Angel
This singular speaker is floating in the air and is really impressive and amazing. It flies thanks to a magnetic levitation system. This device consists of a platform and a balloon-like speaker that rotates when used. The device connects via bluetooth to a distance of up to 20 meters. The device can run for six hours without being recharged. So you can enjoy your favorite songs for a long time. The loudspeaker is compact and ideal for any decor.
This unique case turns your smartphone into the polaroid camera. This invention is based on a system that avoids the use of ink. The case is a construction that can be used along with many smartphones through a usb port. Thanks to which the developers reduce the print time by 30 seconds. The printer case has an integrated accumulator that is channeled with a micro usb cable.
14. Seagate Backup Plus
This is a one-terabyte external usb-3 drive from seagate. Personally I’m a huge fan of the color, which I think looks amazing. And while this specific model is one terabyte. If you need all the terabytes, it goes all the way up to five terabytes, which is crazy. Clearly with increased storage comes increased price, but I think one terabyte overall is a pretty good number for most people out there.
15. Amazon Fire 7
This is a fire tablet. The amazon fire 7. And I’m gonna be real with you. It’s not a blazing fast tablet, but for under $50, it is a damn good option. There’s no way you’re gonna be handling the business, laying down tracks on this, but it’s a great entry level tablet. Whether you’re just reading, watching video, whether it’s netflix. It’s even better if you’re in the amazon ecosystem, it’s going to be awesome.
16. Sengled Light Bulb Speaker
From there, if you like lights, and you like speakers, I’m gonna blow your mind, because I got a two in one. This is a sengled led color changing speaker bulb. You guys know I love me some phillips hue, but I get it, it’s a big investment. You gotta buy into the ecosystem, you gotta buy the starter kit. Whereas with this, you just buy the light bulb, and it just works. Smack on top the fact that it also plays music, and it’s a pretty outstanding deal.
17. Native Union Night Cable
Next, from there, this might be one of my favorite gadgets ever. And honestly, unless you’re on the wireless charging side of camp. The native union night cable is hands down the best bedside option, period. The magic sauce is right here in the weighted ball. You can move it, you can manipulate it, so if you ever woke up in the morning, unplugged your phone. And it feels like someone just yanks the cable from you, that is going to stop that from ever happening again.
18. Aputure Mini Light
This next gadget is the aputure amaran pocket led light, which is exactly what it sounds like. Portable led light that fits in your pocket. Whether you’re a film maker, or just someone who likes to mess with making video. This should be an essential piece of tech in your kit. Aputure makes some of the best lights out there. Not only are they affordable, but they’re actually high quality, and that is this, but in a smaller footprint.
19. Supon L122T
Now with lighting, maybe you need something bigger, brighter. Maybe you really need to have that adjustable color temperature within the light. The supon l122t is a great alternative. In terms of actual light quality of the color, I think the aputure is the better version. But again, this is bigger, it’s more flexible. So with this, if you add maybe a balance or some diffusion, you can definitely do some really cool things with this light.
20. Fire TV Stick 4K
Now most tvs these days, especially the 4k options, usually come in with some sort of netflix, or streaming option. But the problem is, the interface is usually trash. Naturally, you counter to trash with fire. The fire tv stick 4k. There’s not really much that needs to be said about this. You plug the stick in, and now, you’re dumb tv is smart. I will say though, I’d probably only recommend this option if you’re deep in the amazon ecosystem. So if you take advantage of prime, and you can watch that library, then go for it. Otherwise, I would say look elsewhere.
21. Roku Express
Nexy up is roku express. Now personally I feel like this is the best neutral option. If you’re not heavily invested into an ecosystem, this is what you should be looking at. To me it’s kind of like the jack of all trades, master of none tour. It doesn’t really excel or dominate in one specific area, but the amount of features you get packed inside is bananas. What it does have going for it is the interface. It’s simple, it’s easy to use. It could definitely be a little cluttered at times, but overall, for $30 you can’t really go wrong.
22. Heng Balance Light
This is the heng balance light, which is one of the coolest and most unique lights I’ve ever seen. For me what I appreciate about this, is it looks like it could be in some bougie-ass store, and sell for north of 100, or $200, but it doesn’t. It’s under 50, which is nuts.
23. HooToo USB-C Adapter
Next from there is the hootoo usb-c adapter, and I’ve tried multiple dongles, and docks, and adapters. But for whatever reason, I always come back to this one. Build quality is on point, and yeah, I do see the point, and the merit of those docks that plug into the macbook directly. But there’s always been this part of me that kind of just is scared that I’m gonna bump into it and snap a port off. Whereas with this, I feel much safer.
24. Satechi Clamp Hub Pro
From there, speaking of usb-c adapters, if you’re rocking an imac, whether it’s the pro, or the standard model. This dock from satechi is hands-down the way to go. With this, you get three usb 3.0 ports, one usb-c and sd card slot. And yeah, I realize it’s not the biggest deal in the world, but sometimes trying to reach, and find that sd card slot in the back of the imac is annoying. On top of that, aesthetically this thing looks awesome, to the point where it almost looks like it blends in with the imac. So yeah, if you own an imac, you almost need to pick this up.
25. Plugged Crown Series Headphones
Next from there, I got you covered with some really fantastic headphone options. And kicking off the mini list, within this giant list, is the crown series headphones from plugged. For me what stands out is the design. These things are super clean. They’re minimal, and I really dig this matte white finish here, but they also come in black, and navy, which is equally as clean. Now the only potential downside here, is seeing that most smartphones these days don’t have a headphone jack. If you don’t wanna deal with a dongle, or an adapter, you may wanna look elsewhere. These are technically on-ear headphones, but I feel like they’re some sort of hybrid in between on-ear and over-ear. So they’re bigger, you have more coverage which is nice. More importantly, these things sound really good for the money, to the point where I was actually surprised.
26. Audio-Technica ATH-AVC400
Now from there, if you dig the wired headphones, but want just a slight step up in terms of audio quality. The audio technica avh-ac400’s are a great alternative. These are actually over-ear headphones, so they’re bigger, they’re cushier. They’re gonna wrap around your ears, and bless your face with beautiful sounding music. Overall in terms of sound quality, I would say these are more neutral, compared to the crowns that we looked at. If you want a better bass-heavy option, check out the crowns. But in terms of balance, and overall comfort, you could wear these things all day long.
27. Bluedio T2s Bluetooth Headphones
From there, if wired headphones aren’t your thing, because, yeah, I get it, wires, they get in the way. These t2s from bluedio are a steal. These things feature bluetooth 4.1. They have up to 40 fricking hours of playback. They’re bendable, foldable, so they’re a great option to travel with. And again, more importantly, these things sound good, especially when you factor in that they are just about $30.
28. BRAINWAVZ Truss
Now if you’re grabbing any of those headphones, you’re probably thinking to yourself, you know what would go good with those? A headphone stand, and I totally agree with you. The brainwavz truss headphone hanger is this supercool desk hack. That allows you to hang your headphones, up to two, and keep everything super clean. In terms of build quality, it’s made out of aluminum, so it’s really solid.
29. JLab Audio Rewind Wireless
Staying in headphone land, these beauties from jlab audio. Look like something straight out of guardians of the galaxy, but they’re bluetooth. Not only are they under 50, they are under $30, which kind of doesn’t make sense. So if you’re into that retro walkman kind of look, but wanna get with the times, these are your jam.
30. Sony WI-C300
From there, maybe on-ear, over-ear headphones, those aren’t your jam. I got you with a couple more options. The sony wi-c300 wireless bluetooth headphones are money. These things are lightweight. They’re comfortable. They sound really good. They’re rocking bluetooth 4.2. Up to eight hours of battery life, and if you’re on the android side of camp, they also connect via one touch through nfc.
31. Anker Soundcore Spirit X
Now I will say, if you’re looking to workout in headphones, I think the anker soundcore spirit x is the better option. They’re absolutely inspired by powerbeats, no doubt, but they’re a fraction of the price. They’re water resistant. They have great battery life. And if you’re that active person, these are the way to go.
32. Herschel Backpack
So, this far into the review, there’s a good chance that you’ve picked up quite a bit of tech, and more than likely, you need somewhere to store all that. And what better place to do that, than this sweet herschel backpack. I’ve been a fan of herschel backpacks for a long time now. They look great, they’re simple, but more importantly, they hold up over time. You can store a ton of stuff inside these things. And overall, they’re just a great backpack option for the money.
33. Nintendo Switch Charge Stand
So we got gifts for filmmakers, for audio peeps, and I am absolutely not forgetting about my nintendo switch fans. This antank switch charger is kind of genius. It’s packing a 6000 milliamp-hour battery inside, and it form-fits to your switch, which is crazy. It’s also a dual kickstand, which provides much more stability when you’re propping up your switch. And what kind of ices the cake, or pops that cherry on top, is there is built-in storage, so you can store two games inside this, which makes this kind of the trifecta.
34. Echo Input
What if you want to connect your own speaker? What if you want something bigger, something better? Enter the Echo Input. It is essentially the Amazon Echo brain that you can connect to any speaker. So if you wanna go back to the future, max that baby out, you can throw the Echo Input on that, and bring that smart home functionality to your massive setup.
35. Eufy Body Scale
The eufy body scale is 39.99, which almost doesn’t make sense. On top of just weight, you can track your body fat, your bmi, water, muscle, bone, visceral fat, the worst kind, and also muscles mass, for them gains. It connects via bluetooth, which is awesome, but what’s even cooler, is you can store up to 20 different profiles, which is quite a few.
36. Native Union Smarthub
Next from there, looking at some of my favorite travel tech, the native union smarthub for me is essential. Build quality is fantastic, so I’m not gonna have to worry about throwing it in my backpack, and wonder if it’s gonna break. You get a total of four ports. Three regular usb ports, and then one usb-c, which for me, kind of seals the deal, and makes this thing really handy.
37. RAVPower All-in-One FileHub Plus
Next from there, is the ravpower all-in-one filehub plus. For starters, there’s a 6700 milliamp hour battery packed inside. Awesome. There’s also a built-in sd card slot, so you can wirelessly transfer photos to your phone, or directly to a hard drive. You don’t wanna bring your laptop? Double awesome. And then on top of that, to ice the cake, it is also a portable wifi router. So imagine you’re at a hotel, and you have access to ethernet. You could actually plug that in to this little guy, and then it turns into this little wifi hotspot, which is triple awesome.
38. DUO LINK
From there, maybe you don’t need all that. Maybe you don’t need an sd card slot, and just need more storage on your iphone, or potentially your older ipad. The duo link from pny is a really solid choice. This particular model gets you an extra 128 gigabytes of storage. So if you are maxed out, or living on a prayer, this will give you some breathing room.
39. Anker 10 Port Data Hub
So next, if you love usb ports, or you find yourself just filling them up constantly, you need this 10 port monster hub from anker. So what’s awesome is you have seven usb 3.0 ports, which also pass through data. But you also have three iq ports, which you’re gonna use for charging. What this is gonna do is rapidly charge your phone, but then also ramp down, and stop charging once the battery is full.
40. Anker Wireless Charger
From there, speaking of anker, most phones these days feature wireless charging. So if you wanna go that route, but don’t wanna spend a ton of money, this standing charge is a fantastic option. What I appreciate about this, is that everything you need to charge your phone is in the box. Whereas with some other wireless chargers, you have to buy things separately.
41. Twelve South BookBook Caddysack
Next from there, if you like organizing your tech in things that don’t look like tech, the twelve south bookbook caddy is perfect. Now, where this makes a great companion piece is for someone who owns an ipad or a macbook. The chargers fit perfectly, and even with the new ipad pro, featuring that magnetic apple pencil. If you are worried about losing it, this is a great place to store it.
42. SliQ by East Brooklyn Labs
So from there, we know apple has completely screwed up airpower, which means no airpods 2, no wireless charging. Unless, bam, this wireless charging case from east brooklyn labs, which solves that problem. It’s pretty simple. You pop your airpods case into this, and that adds a layer of protection, and also adds wireless charging. My only complaint is it’s a little counterintuitive, to where you have to actually face it down to charge.
43. Blue Snowball iCE
Next from there, is a tech youtube classic. The blue snowball ice, which is a fantastic usb microphone, that isn’t going to break the bank. Whether you’re looking to record an instrument, or do a voiceover, or potentially even stream, this is a perfect option. It’s simple, it’s plug and play, so you’re not going to need an audio degree to set it up, and again, the most important part, is this thing sounds good.
44. Divoom Aurabox
Next from there, is the divoom aurabox, which does a ton of things, but in a nutshell is a smart pixel speaker. The most enticing thing with this, is the customization you have over the leds. Whether you wanna use it as a clock, or notifications, or just smack an icon there, which looks awesome. The sound quality of the speaker also surprised me. It’s not amazing, and if you’re looking solely for a bluetooth speaker, I would not pick this up.
45. AOC 22V2H
This is a 22 inch monitor from aoc and since it comes in at just $100. I figured it would be a good pick up for someone who might have a really old monitor for your setup. You don’t have a lot of space maybe this could definitely be a good option at the price. If you’re looking to upgrade the panel itself is full hd so it’s 1920 by 1080. It’s an ips 75 hertz refresh rate panel it does have free sync built in but the picture itself everything looks really nice.
46. RGB Light Wand
Next up for photographers and videographers out there. You might be interested in this rgb light wand as you can see very thin lightweight overall. But since it has the rgb capabilities you have full control to switch up the colors on the fly. And really dial this in to give some unique shots in your video, photos.
47. Razer Basilisk
Next up is a mouse for you pc gamers out there. This is the razer basilisk mercury and I’ll admit I definitely slept on this mouse when it came out pretty much just overlooked it. And I’ve been using it a lot lately taking a look at it I think it definitely looks nice in this mercury color. You have eight physical buttons which you can change up.
48. Kingston MobileLite Wireless Pro
Next we’re gonna take a look at a pretty cool piece of tech from the guys over at kingston. This is the kingston mobilelite wireless pro, a portable charger with some awesome features. It has a built-in sd card and usb reader that allows you to take your files and stream them over to your ios or android device. Using its own wireless network this is perfect for travelers.
49. Grip Gear Movie Maker
This is the grip gear movie maker set. Now a lot of people ask me how to start making videos if they don’t have an expensive camera. And I usually tell them if your smartphone has a decent camera you should try starting with that. With this guy you can get some dope shots with your smartphone. It’s a motorized slider with a head that can move a full 360 degrees. You can use it horizontally or vertically and you can even slide it manually.
50. HYDRA SmartBottle
Now we all know what the new year comes resolutions about getting healthy and a great piece of tech to help do that is the hydra smart bottle. It a 20-ounce water bottle but it’s also a bluetooth speaker which you can remove to play it separately from the water bottle. It also has a multicolor led light and you can use it to charge your devices through a usb. It’s got a four thousand milliamp hour battery. So it’ll charge most phones at least once and then some.
