With the holidays coming up soon our offices have been buzzing about the awesome tech toys that we would love to unwrap and play with this year. Some are great for the office, some are great for the home and some are great just about anywhere!
If you have people in your life who love social media, blogging, vlogging, podcasting or tech toys in general, these gift ideas could be what you’re looking for:
iPad Mini: Apple has done it again – and amazed us with the iPad Mini. Some people may think that the iPad mini isn’t worth their time – we know that it definitely is because our own dev dude, Michael Caputo, has one and we’ve seen how cool and functional it can be from a first hand experience. The iPad Mini is the hottest choice for tweeting, blogging and keeping up to date when on the go. Check it out.
Tablet Stand: Since everyone is getting into the tablet love affair, it’s important that you have a stylin’ stand for your sleek device. Since The Blog Studio office is decked out in a mostly wooden, minimalistic decor, we think this example from Etsy would be a great option!
3D Printer: We’re not picky on brand or model with 3D printers right now, we’re just totally into the idea of having one in the office. This is the future and it’s awesome! The ability to print in 3D is nothing short of amazing when you consider that only 15 years ago many of us were still ripping the serrated edges off of our printed documents. We promise that we will only use it for business related purposes. Don’t believe us? Check out this amazing video of the 3-D printer doing it’s thing.
USB Microphone: For any podcaster, one thing is true: a good microphone is essential. Getting a mic that is easy to setup and has great sound is key. The Spark Digital from Blue Microphones is a great option and is USB and iPad compatible! Check it out.
Wii U: We love our work, but we also love to play. And the new Wii U from Nintendo is at the top of our Christmas list when it comes to tech toys. With the option to play with the TV, the on-controller screen, or to switch from one to the other in the middle of a game, the Wii U is bringing options to the table that we haven’t had before. Just watching the trailers for Madden ‘13 and Batman Arkham City makes me want one in my hands right now! Take a look at tell us you don’t want one too.
Square: The San-Francisco based startup has been generating a lot of buzz for the past few years – and they made the big announcement that Square now available in Canada! This nifty device allows you to make credit card payment through your phone. All in favour of making life easier – this is for you. It’s a quick and efficient way to make payments, and we’re all about making things easy. You can check it out here.
