When it comes to watching a movie or a big game back at home, most of us would settle for a regular TV.

How about catching the upcoming Academy Awards live on a larger viewing area compared to your regular TV with the Epson Home Cinema 3700?
It might still be bitterly cold on the outside for those of you living in the northern hemisphere, so you might as well kill time by staying indoors and enjoying the latest movies and TV shows in the warm indoors. The Epson Home Cinema 3700 will be able to get the job done, and then some. Perfect for big-screen family movie nights, it can also be used to host gaming tournaments in the man cave, or perhaps to let you binge on streaming TV shows in the living room, not to mention set the perfect tone for a romantic big-screen date night at home.

Projectors are nothing new these days, although the kind of technology that goes into them have definitely improved by leaps and bounds. As we get to enjoy clearer, brighter images with a higher resolution count, all rolled into a body that is more portable, how many projectors do you know out there that are brave enough to explore a form factor that is very different from that of a regular rectangular box? Enter the $2,500 Video Streaming Robotic Projectionist.
The first question that most people will ask when they set their sights on the Video Streaming Robotic Projectionist would be this, “Is this a robot first and projector second, or a projector first and a robot second?” The answer to that question is a silent one, you simply will need to spend time with it yourself and then draw your very own conclusions.
The Video Streaming Robotic Projectionist is a mobile robot that has the ability to wirelessly project images and streams videos from the Internet. It can project an 80″ picture on any surface from 9 3/4′ away, and this would free a crowd of viewers from having to huddle around a tiny smartphone screen so that everyone is able to view social media content or perhaps the latest trending YouTube videos. There is also a free app for Apple iOS and Android devices which will allow users to remotely control the robot, allowing the user to command its every roll, pitch, and yaw.
Do take note that the kind of money you pay for this will not offer that much in terms of video resolution, since it maxes out at just 720p HD projection. It is also best to hook it up to another sound system, since the integrated 5-watt speaker is not going to impress anyone. I suppose most of the money would have gone into its robotics than anything else. The app is versatile enough for the user to alter the image’s orientation, adjust the volume level, change content, and schedule a specific time and place for a pre-planned picture show. Connectivity options include USB, HDMI input and media connections.

The Virtual 60-Game Pinball Arcade comes with a 32″ LED playfield that will be able to faithfully reproduce the hallmarks of a classic pinball cabinet complete with the details of their mechanical predecessors while offering razor-sharp 1080p high-definition.

The imagination and mind of a child is truly a wonderful thing. In fact, give them something as simple as a cardboard box, and they will be able to turn it into a time machine or a spaceship, or simply something else that amazes you. When they are bored, do not throw them a tablet or smartphone to play games with, but rather, how about trying a sheet of paper and some crayons? If you think that doing so is too messy to clean up afterwards, then the $59.95 Young Van Gogh’s Illuminated Dry Erase Easel might be worth looking up as an alternative to unleash their artistic tendencies.

The mounted marker tray prevents the art instruments from getting lost and the easel folds up for compact storage. Some assembly is required, with a trio of AA batteries powering the Young Van Gogh’s Illuminated Dry Erase Easel.

Little kids don’t want to be little kids, even from the time they’re just learning to walk. They want to do everything on their own, and come running back to mom and dad when they realize things are a bit more complicated than they thought they would be. You want to help them be as independent as possible so that those habits of being self-reliant will follow them into adulthood, and those little moments start whenever you let them.
While this isn’t going to help your kid learn how to change the oil in their car or file their taxes, the Leaf Faucet Extender will help little hands be washed without you having to pick up your child. This is used to put the stream of water further out so that children can get on a step stool and wash their hands on their own. It can also help bath time feel more like swimming in a pool under a waterfall!
This does take some work to put onto the faucet, but should fit most standard-sized bathroom sinks. Since this isn’t made of metal, you’ll have to remove and wash it to keep it free of scum build-up, but thankfully it is dishwasher safe. You’ll be paying out $6.99 for this little bathroom accessory, and will still have to turn on the water your tiny tot, but at least your arms won’t die holding your them closer to the faucet.
Available for purchase on Amazon

The binoculars will sport eight brightness levels, with 3X optical magnification, 2X digital zoom, and manual focus wheel that enable you to capture the nocturnal habits of animals, or even stumble your way back to camp after spending the night out stargazing.

Marvel has certainly outdone itself in the cinematic realm, successfully making comic book heroes on the silver screen a top draw. Of course, the carefully cast actors and actresses in their respective roles also did play a part in the huge box office draw. Well, Marvel certainly are not done yet with all the movies in their pipeline, and while you wait for the next best thing, you might as well line up Christmas presents for your little ones. Why not keep them entertained with the $49.95 Avengers Virtual Reality Battle?
The Avengers Virtual Reality Battle is a head-mounted blaster game which will allow children to do battle with Ultron. Arming an aspiring S.H.I.E.L.D. agent with a powerful blaster, the player can choose from three different levels of difficulty. He or she will then suit up and join the Avengers in order to topple this nefarious villain. Expect the headset to fit snugly around a child’s head thanks to the two adjustable straps. It will project three alternating images (two of Ultron, one of Iron Man) on the inside of the goggles, where you then take aim of the blaster at Ultron. Each successful hit after pulling the trigger will score a point, but if you shoot Iron Man by accident instead, you lose a point. Realistic Avengers sound effects are part of the mix, and so is the score tally on the digital counter. Half a dozen AAA batteries are required to get the Avengers Virtual Reality Battle, er, battle-ready.
