The idea of being able to wear and use a Communicator like those seen in Star Trek is obviously something everyone wants to try. While we have our cell phones, it’s just not the same as being able to tap a pin on your shirt and have instant access to a friend who may or may not be nearby. We got a feel for this sort of device through walkie talkies as kids, and now that we’re adults, we don’t get to use them unless we have to for work.
It won’t function like a normal long-range walkie talkie, but this Onyx can certainly give you instant access to your friends and family. These are “smart” walkie talkies, in that they give you unlimited range through the cellular data on your smartphone. They have unlimited channels, and easily pair with Android and iOS smartphones alike. They’re lightweight, and can clip onto your clothes or bag easily.
You’ll be able to name the various channels you share with friends to keep track of who is speaking, and a map on the app will show you where the other end is on the globe. Getting a pair of these in black, silver, iridescent cobalt or rose will cost you $199.99. Sadly, if either of you don’t have your phone with cell and internet access available when you want to use this, you can’t.

If you’re all about having a smart home, then you likely dream of having a similar setup to Tony Stark’s workshop. Everything is a motion or spoken word away from popping up before your very eyes. Currently it takes no small measure of work and money to have access to even a modicum of that same fluidity throughout your home. The most a fair number of us could manage right now is having Alexa hooked up to some smart lights that turn on or off when we say so.
Should you be the type of person who is always watching something, then having a screen pop up wherever you’d like would be a venture worth pursuing. Enter in the Beam, a smart projector that will screw into any light socket, and give you a projector wherever you’d like. This means you can watch your favorite show on the kitchen counter while cooking, wake up to the news on the wall by your bed, or watch a movie in the tub.
This is based off of the Pico LED projector which puts out 100 lumens, and has an image size range of 5-150 inches. This will connect with any app that’s on Beam, and you can control it through your smartphone or tablet. This is a $449.99 purchase, which makes it something that you’ll have to think over a bit more thoroughly before jumping into.

Not all headphones are created equal, that is for sure. You can have earbuds that remain in place no matter how active a lifestyle you lead, while others might settle for a pair of noise-cancellation headphones — the large, bulky ones that make sure your long haul flight has one of the best possible experiences. Well, LG has released something that it teased at CES 2017 right at the start of the year — the LG Tone Ultra.
The LG Tone Ultra might be mistaken for a pair of headphones, but in reality, this is actually a new kind of wearable speaker that will make sure your body feels as though you were right smack in the middle of the action, be it a high octane game, or in an action movie.
The $299 LG Tone Studio is the latest around-the-neck Bluetooth wearable speaker that will play nice with Bluetooth audio enabled LG Smart TVs running WebOS, providing you with the experience of surround sound regardless of where you are. What makes the LG Tone Studio so special?There are not just one or up to three, but rather, a quartet of speakers that will truly let you immerse yourself in real 3D Surround Sound whenever you indulge in watching a movie, playing a video game, streaming music or simply talking on the phone.
During moments when personal surround sound is not required, the LG TONE Studio will boast of the legacy TONE tangle free, retractable earbuds that are seen in LG’s range up of Bluetooth headsets such as the LG Tone Ultra, LG Tone Active, LG Tone Infinim, and LG Tone Platinum. Sharing the action is as simple as turning on the Dual Play feature, as you hook up a pair of LG Tone Studio wearable speakers so that you can let everyone else around you enjoy sounds from a movie, playlist or others.
Dealing with people is usually the last thing anyone wants to do. While some humans are awesome, going out in public with a whole mess of them on a train, plane, or bus is sometimes overwhelming in a bad way. We use music and social media to tune them out, but that doesn’t completely remove the potential for eye contact, or worse…conversation.
If you want to completely tune out of reality and have a long commute home, where you don’t have drive or pay attention to your surroundings in any manner, then these Avegant Glyph Headphones will be a dream come true. These are a video headset that will let you watch movies, play games, and more through this audio and video portable theater. They can connect to just about any smartphone, tablet, drone, or gaming console up to 40,000 feet away, or about 7.5 miles away.
You’ll be able to wear these like normal headphones and use them as such, but obviously the big draw is the display aspect. The cool thing about this device is that it reflects light with over two million micro-mirrors, which replicates natural human eyesight, so you won’t burn out your eyes at such a close range to the screen! Keeping that in mind, these are not cheap at $499, but it will give you some measure of privacy when it feels like you have none.
