There are a lot of great options for “cool toys” this holiday season, here are some of our favorites to give you some ideas and get you started:
DJI Osmo pocket – $350
Bring 4k quality to all your videos with this portable, mechanically stabilized, and intelligent camera. Biking, swimming, or dancing, the 3-axis stabilized cam will provide the best quality recording you can get, focusing on your target and even turning on its own to follow movement. The small device also comes with expansive accessories to offer true flexibility.
Jabra Elite 65t Earbuds – $170
Completely wireless, the model 65t is equipped with four-microphone technology to offer the best voice quality for your calls by cancelling background noise with the flick of a switch. You can also extend your five-hour battery life to 10 by using the charging case, and connect to Alexa, Siri, or Google Assistant to use voice commands.
Google Home Hub – $130
Use voice commands to control your smart lights, thermostat, security cameras, TV, and more from one place. When hearing cooking recipes is not enough, Google is there to help with the Home Hub. Equipped with a display screen it can play videos on command, show your security camera feed, or stand by with the weather forecast or a slide show of your photo album.
Anki Vector – $250
A cute command-driven robot for your home. It works with Alexa to help around the house answering questions and setting your cooking timer. And while this cute mechanical pet can do helpful things like checking the weather and act as a remote-controlled camera, it is most than anything a great playing partner. All you have to do to operate it is download the app through the Apple App Store, Google Play Store, or Amazon Appstore.
