As technology continues to progress, you may find yourself wondering about the world that your kids will grow up in as you compare it to how you grew up. Not long ago, we were using computers that filled up an entire room. Nowadays, we’re talking about the size of our smartphones (actually, are we talking about the size of our smartphones?).
Technology progresses rapidly, and as it does, it becomes smaller and more personal. Our lives are now centered around our phones and tablets. While our methods and applications may change over time, technology is a constant. Before you know it, your kids will be using a 3D printer to print out a new part for the car instead of going to the hardware store.

1. Sony Computer Entertainment VR
- Realistic immersion using PS VR headset
- Space-based adventure
- Double-joystick controller
Like the "Catan VR" game, this game takes place in outer space. Just like in real life, there are asteroids to be found, bonuses, and resources to mine. There are also meteor showers you have to avoid. What makes this game fun is that in space the boundaries aren't bound to the limitations of the real world. You can fly through space faster than light, teleporting to strategize or flee from enemies. It's a fun twist to the classic game that really helps the game stand out.
2. Bluetooth Speakers
- No distortion at high volumes
- Can play for a full 24 hours
- Bass could have been stronger

It also comes with an additional 3.5mm audio cable, in case you lose its wireless connection or run out of batteries. The top has a flap that covers the micro USB port and makes the whole thing waterproof. You can even use the detachable strap to hang it off your office or bathroom mirror. This speaker definitely gets the job done, no matter where.

4. Samsung 49-Inch CHG90 144Hz Curved Gaming Monitor
I’ve seen a lot of reviews commenting that when it comes to all-encompassing screens, there are no sets doing it better than this one by Samsung. The set is greater than double the usual width, comes with a resolution of 3840 X 1080p, and is perfect if you need a large screen for a workstation or a multi-monitor set up.
It’s built with Samsung’s Quantum Dot display, which will get you crisp colors and pictures more like real life. It also has HDR, High Dynamic Range, and that’s something you will want to have if you’re into gaming.
The CHG90 is a curved screen, which means you’ll be getting a much wider field of view, and it can cover multiple monitors, should you be looking for that.

7. Zink Polaroid Snap Instant Digital Camera
Everyone was in awe with Polaroid when their first camera launched. Thus, why not get one for the photographer in the family and you won't have to worry about giving them a pile of pictures and having them pass on some because they don't care for them for whatever reasons they tell you. Believe in your own judgment though, if the photos they take are horrible, don't give it to them.

GoPro’s Hero5 is the newest action cam on the block, and the sleekest ever. This is one tiny piece of gear, lightweight and durable, and a perfect addition to your gear bag. GoPro has refined the design, adding a touchscreen and voice control, which make this camera super user-friendly, even for novices. It isn’t waterproof without a case, but you can add one if you want waterproofing on demand.
This camera comes with a 12-megapixel LCD touchscreen, 4K video, and up to 12MP photos. Use it in the Hero5 Black edition, but not on the Silver. GoPro deliberately dropped live video and touchscreen in order to make the camera slimmer and cheaper, but not everyone is happy about it.
There are some nice other touches on the Hero5. It’s got a new lens covering, and it waterproof to 33 feet without a housing. It’s also designed to work with a series of accessories, including a remote control.
9. Braun Electric Razor
- Easy to use
- Cleaning is a breeze
Electric shavers can be a little tricky. It’s not like your average razor that you’ll get used to over time. With electric shavers, you may need to try it out a few times before finding the brand that works best for you. Some men may have a sensitive skin, while some may use it when they’ve got too much facial hair. No two men are going to have the same experience with shavers. Considering this into mind, it’s not a bad idea to try out a few different ones before finding your favorite. It might save you a lot of trouble in the end.

This is a great console to take on the go, but not a good fit if you plan to keep it fixed to a single television. Still, the Switch is a great system for gamers on the go, with its neck-strap design that allows for maximum portability.
19. Sonos Play: 5
While Sonos isn’t yet well-known to a lot of people, it’s increasingly well-reviewed by audiophiles and music fans. This is not only a good Bluetooth speaker, but it’s also a lot more than that, thanks to its impressive set of abilities.
Let’s start with how it looks. It’s undeniably beautiful, with a stylish and smooth black exterior. The inside is just as attractive, with a slick control panel, and even a mute button. Then there’s the sound quality you’re going to get out of this thing, which will blow your mind.
Audio is clear and vibrant, and you can tell the difference between a high-quality song and a low-quality one just off your sounds. That’s thanks to your 5 drivers (the same you’ll get from an alarm clock set) combined with the 2 passive radiators that are built into the speaker.

While Jabra Elite Sport provides enough freedom to roam around, you shouldn't get too far from your phone (due to its 3.5 hours of battery life). It doesn't come with a secure fit. Another downside is the size of the earbuds as they can feel a little bulky to wear. But it's really not a big deal if you're into truly wireless earphones.
