I’m sure many techy people are much like me in the aspect that I find myself counting the seconds till the new gadget hits the market. I am the definition of an early adopter, which is not always a good thing. It sometimes leaves me with the buggy 1st generation of a device that will only be upgraded and improved in future builds, but I can’t seem to help myself.
Whether it be a computer, tablet, media player, or just the newest smartphone, I have been on that end more than I care to admit. Well, for those of you like me, here’s a sneak peak of some tech devices that you will see hitting the market this year. Some are already on sale in many stores while others are more niche items and you might have to sleuth around online to find a place to make an order.
#1. Looxcie LX2 Video Camera
This camera is a quick and easy camera that keeps you from digging around in your purse or fumbling with on/off switches causing you to miss that special moment. It shoots 30 seconds of video and allows you to upload directly to the site of your choice including youtube. Never miss another memory. Those who already wear a bluetooth device might find themselves wearing a device on each ear which will end up in some stares without a doubt.
#2. ICG07 iPhone Mobile Game Controller
The biggest complaint of mobile gaming is that on-screen controls aren’t very functional due to the fact that they take up too much screen space. When you take your fingers off the display and have a full functioning remote control, you can truly have a first person gaming experience on a mobile device.
#3. Magic Cube Laser Projection Keyboard by Celluon
As if it were straight out of Star Trek or some other futuristic movie, the Magic Cube projects a useable keyboard right onto the surface in front of the user. The device picks up even the slightest keystrokes. It is great for mobile devices like phones and tablets and compatible with iOS, MAC, Windows XP, Vista, and 7.
#4. OCZ OCZMSNIA NIA – Neural Impulse Actuator
Again, let’s hop on the Starship Enterprise as this is a device that I still don’t quite believe. It gives the user a gaming experience like none other. It bypasses the many keystrokes involved in many games these days and actually pick up and tension differences that can cut reaction times in half. Absolutely out of this world.
#5. Alienware M14X 14″ Laptop
This machine is a beast. Period. 2.0 Ghz i7 Processor, 8 GB RAM, 750GB HD. This laptop will meet the requirements of even the most intense gamers and is available for purchase right now. Hard black shell casing makes this a very stylish piece of technology that I wouldn’t mind getting my hands on.
