Gadgets; everyone has them, everyone knows about them, but which ones are the best? We asked that very question and compiled this short list of six amazing gadgets that we know you’d love to own.
Razer Blade Laptop
The Razer Blade gaming laptop is an innovative product created by the gaming computer manufacturer Razer. It is 0.66 inches thick and includes; a SATA III SSD at either 128 GB, 256 GB or 512 GB, as well as an Intel Core i7 quad-core processor at either 2.2GHz or 3.2GHz along with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 765M graphics card and 8GB onboard memory.
HTC’s flagship device, the HTC One, has sold over five million units and has taken the smartphone industry by storm. And why wouldn’t it? It has the looks, the technology and the fire-power to do so. A slick design with features such as a front facing camera, powerful speakers and a huge screen. This one also comes with the android operating system and a 1.7GHz quad-core processor.
Olympus PEN E-P5
The Olympus PEN series has always been an amazing series for photography. With an 1/8000S shutter speed, 16 megapixel sensor with a five-axis stabilisation system, and a simply breathtaking auto-focus system. Perfect for street photography, this small, compact Olympus PEN takes the PEN series to a whole new modern height while still feeling like a good old half-frame PEN camera.
Nvidia Project Shield
Project Shield by Nvidia is a portable gaming device that will redefine gaming on the go. It boasts top of the line audio and visual quality on the android gadget. The device lets you play the newest games in high quality from your home. You can easily connect the device to your PC using WiFi, enabling you to play your favourite games without even having to move. The only down side to this is that it’s still in development, however it’s looking to come out in early 2014.
Innovation; the future; Google Glass. As far as I’m concerned, this is the future; it’s the first step to humans becoming cyborgs. Use your voice to take control of the lightweight glasses to get them to take pictures, record video, send messages, find directions and translate your speech. Currently being tested by ‘Glass Explorers’, the hands-free smartphone will be released in 2013.
Revolutionary technology, the 3D printer can print plastic, amongst many other materials. Using thin slices of plastic, the printers stack them on top of each other to create the 3D object. I absolutely love 3D printing as a concept and recommend any printer that actually does it – check out the MakerBot range. The price of 3D printing has dropped significantly over the past few years and is due to drop even more within the coming months as key patents will expire allowing more creative freedom for manufacturers.
The perfect situation would be 3D printing something that I made on my Razer Blade laptop from a game I played on my Nvidia Project Shield, then taking a video of it being made with my Google Glass and then snapping a picture of the final product with my Olympus PEN EP-5, while texting my friends about it on my HTC One.
