It’s December, and although the holidays don’t start for a couple more weeks, we’re in a Christmas mood in the WebAdept offices here in Pembrokeshire. It’s an occupational hazard of working in the digital world – developing websites and digital marketing – that we come across loads of cool stuff online, so we decided to put it all together into one big long Christmas list. There’s something to delight the tech geek in everyone (however deeply that inner tech geek might be hidden). So if you were stuck for ideas of what to buy that infuriating ‘person who has everything’, or were looking for something you never knew you needed, here’s our ultimate digital Christmas wish list for 2016.
1. Google Cardboard Virtual Reality Headset
For such a techie company, cardboard is the last thing you might think of, but Google is bringing the world of VR (Virtual Reality) to anyone who has a smartphone with the power of Cardboard – and some apps. Awesome, and very reasonable at £15.00
2. Laser keyboards
Mixed reviews, but hey, this looks pretty cool, and if nothing else, a bit of fun. Imagine conjuring up your laser keyboard on the commute into work (providing you’re not driving of course), or when you’re ‘hot desking’ in the local café.
3. Tech Will Save Us
They might be billed as toys aimed at children, but everything on www.techwillsaveus.com is totally awesome, and really, has any one ever got too old to get a kit for a robot you can build and code yourself? Or a gaming console?No. We didn’t think so either.
4. Mobile printer
The trouble with smart phones and tablets is that we take all these photos but what do we do with them? OK, they might get shared on social media, but admit it, there was something special about taking a roll of film to the chemist and collecting actual photos. This mobile printer connects via blue tooth to your phone and prints on ZINK photo paper – no need for ink cartridges or ribbons, just convenient photos. No need to take your SD card to the printer either…
So yes we’re waiting with baited breathe for Rogue 1: A Star Wars Story to hit the screens of Pembrokeshire on 14th December, but until that time, and perhaps even after, BB8 is still going to be cool. How much better could a droid get?
