Christmas is right around the corner. Here’s 14 awesome gifts for anyone who likes technology. Including weird gadgets, a functional tablet, and a whole of varied electronic fun.
1. Lightning Reaction Electric Shock Game – $23.97
Whoever has the slowest reaction time gets ZAPPED. It’s a fun game for the whole family and a great way to get everyone involved in an ultimately silly, but hilarious activity.
2. Retro Portable Gaming System Plays NES, SNES Games – $99.99
Play all your favorite regular Nintendo and Super Nintendo games on this amazing portable gaming machine. Someone in your family is bound to enjoy this trip to nostalgia.
3. GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition- $399.99
The awesome camera everyone loves, this is the perfect gift for anyone looking to record more of the action in their lives.
4. Night Owl Night Vision Monocular Sees in the Dark – $179.99
Nothing’s cooler than being able to see in the dark. Night vision is a great, suprising gift to give, and even though it may not be that useful, it’s still a fun toy to pull out.
5. Stackable Tetris LED Lamp – $39.99
Nerdy galore, this desk “techoration” is sure to delight anyone with a penchant for the classic Russian puzzle game. Plus, it looks pretty spiffy to boot.
6. Google Nexus 7 Tablet (7-Inch, 32GB, Black) – $260.48
While it’s not quite an iPad air, the Nexus 7 is an amazing tablet. If you’re looking to surprise someone with an awesome new toy, it’s an excellent introduction to the Android operating system and there’s plenty of fun to be had on this great Google Tablet.
7. Fake TV Burglar Deterrent – $29.95
While it may not be the most fun gift, it is a burglar deterrent after all, this cheapie is still pretty delightful. Keep your house safe by tricking people into thinking you’re home watching TV. Now, that’s cool — and useful.
8. Best, Dirt-Cheap Headphones – $7.23
As someone who has purchased 5 pairs of these headphones (I lose headphones a lot), these are an awesome deal for a stocking stuffer. Everyone could always use an extra pair of earbuds, and these sound amazing. They’re much bassier than Apple‘s standard fare, and are just as good as headphones that are two to three times more expensive. Buy a round for the kids, and maybe an extra pair or two just in case.
9. Anker Back-up Battery Pack$36.99
Nothing is worse than running out of battery on your cell phone. Ok, there are a lot of things worse than that, but it is still highly annoying, especially on a long car trip. This Anker battery pack will charge portable devices, like smartphones, up to two times.
10. Hypnosquare LED Array – $99.99
Another “technoration,” this LED array can generate thousands of patterns and different colored lights. A very cool desk decoration for the light-loving techie.
11. Light Disk, Green Tech Decoration – $26.80
Another fun techno-decoration, this light disk can be interacted with and is a fun gift for anyone looking to spice up the vibe of a drab room.
12. Google Drive Storage – $9.99 a month for 200GB
As mundane as it may sound, everyone needs storage. This gift may not jump off the pages, but any techie would be happy to receive some cloud storage for putting their files where they can always reach them.
