If your partner, relative, or friend is obsessed with technology, buying gifts can be a difficult task. Tech lovers are, by their nature, driven to pursue the latest technology has to offer. Anything less than the best will be received by with a look of disdain – if you’re lucky. So, if you’re struggling to come up with some good ideas for your gadget-loving loved one, read on. We’ll give you some thoughts that – hopefully, anyway – will be relevant enough, until January, at least!
The one thing that tech-obsessed all have in common is that they love their media. With this in mind, we thought we would introduce you to the pico projector. ‘Pico’ means pocket, and these little gadgets are small enough to fit in the pockets of the tightest jeans. Just pull it out, connect it to a phone, and you can use the projector on a wall to watch your media. As long as the lights are a little dim, your loved will be able to watch anywhere they like.
If you want to avoid the wrath of a tech lover, then give the something they can’t complain about. There’s no point trying to score points off them by getting something you think is fresh and new – they will always know of something better. But, one of these Travelcard Chargers will be gratefully received. The chances are that your loved one will use their phone a lot, being a gadget head and all. So, this little charger will help them get their juice back as and when they need it, wherever they are. It just fits in a wallet or purse and is available for Android and iPhones.
You’ve probably seen plenty of people zipping about on their Segways. But they are so last year – as your friend will tell you. So, instead, why not try a Seg Board? They are more like a skateboard than a scooter, but still have the motorized speed – up to 10 mph, apparently. I would say that whoever takes a ride on one of these would need to be in reasonable shape. But as long as your loved on has a sense of balance, I’m pretty sure they’ll be flying around in no time.
Is your tech-loving friend also a travel fiend If so, then why not get them a Sigmo? This started as a crowdfunding piece of kit and is reminiscent of the universal translator from Star Trek. You may not know what that means, but I guarantee whoever you give it to will. It’s a cool piece of work that translates 25 different languages – in real time. So, the next time you head off somewhere where the locals are incomprehensible – Scotland, for example – then bring one of these.
Sennheiser Momentum Headphones
Buy your tech-lover a pair of Beats or Monster headphones and they will choke with disgust. Instead, go for something like these Sennheiser Momentum Headphones. They look great, and, most importantly, sound far better than Beats ever could. Headphones like these don’t come around often, but when they do they will be around for a long time.
