The Zeus All-In-One Printer – who needs to buy toys when you can make them?

We seem to have an unending want of stuff. We’ll try to be choosy and make it things that will actually be useful and applicable to our lives, but when was the last time you went an entire month without buying anything that wasn’t groceries? If you have the capital and know-how, you can avoid needing to buy any tangible bobble again, since you can make it yourself.

Not too long ago 3D printers were something only found in science fiction, and now they can give your imagination and logic a run for their money. Zeus is a plug-and-play 3D printer that will let you start making your first print within 10 minutes of its unboxing. It can be used to make toys, school projects, prototypes, or recreate old objects with ease. It is also fully automated in regards to calibration, so you never have to do any bed-leveling or touching the insides.

Since the parts are modular, you can quickly get to the turbtable and extruder to deal with any potential issues and get back to creating. There’s also the added bonus of having the templates for a number of parts in the machine, meaning you can create backups to have handy or create a new part in a couple of hours. Its max build is 6 x 8 x 5.7” with a max resolution of 80 microns. The 7” color display will let you do on-board editing without needing an external computer, making this a self-contained thing-making machine. This will cost you around $2,337, and you’ll need printer filament spools at around $22 a pop, so it’s an expensive way to pass the time.

The Fidget Hand Spinner keeps busy minds occupied

When you’re sitting during a lecture where the professor is going off on a tangent or are stuck in a meeting where your boss loves to hear themselves talk, your mind wanders. It’s hard not to be restless and start tapping your feet, fingers, and playing with whatever is nearby. You don’t want to be rude, but you also don’t want to be bored, and have to find a common space in between the two so you don’t go insane.

We’ve seen tools like the Fidget Cube in the past, but if that novelty has worn off or it has seen so much use that you need a new one, this Fidget Spinner might be a good replacement. This is a toy that has ceramic bearings that you can spin as much as you want without needing repairs, oil, or maintenance. If your spin is powerful enough, it could keep going for over 2 minutes.

These come in a variety of color options, and there’s even a glow in the dark version for those that need something to distract themselves before going to sleep. It’s only 3 inches in diameter, so it can easily go wherever you do. They’ll cost you around $9 a piece, and should survive constant use from both adults and children alike. If you are getting one for a child, check in with their teacher, as what might seem like a good idea could quickly become a nightmare in the classroom.

LG Tone Studio lets you experience surround sound around your neck

lg-tone-studioNot 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.

The Avegant Glyph are headphones that separate you from the real world

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.

The Cubii Mini Elliptical helps your mind and body keep active while you’re at work

When you’re sitting at a desk all day with constant stress on you, it’s hard to want to do any physical activity when you get home. Waking up earlier in the day is your best chance of getting in a workout, but if you falter in the slightest with your morning routine, you’re not going to make it to the gym. That isn’t your only hope though, as you can find some options that will keep you active without requiring a chunk of time out of your day.

While the Cubii isn’t going to give you a six pack, it will at least keep your body in motion. This is an elliptical that will sit under your desk so you can pedal your way to some quality cardio, or put you on a pleasant stroll to nowhere. It was made to be as ergonomic as possible so that you are at the best angle and won’t be smacking your knees with every rotation. Just to make sure everyone can use it, this comes with 2 wheel stoppers so rolling chair users don’t feel left out.

You won’t just be peddling along without any challenge as there are 8 levels of adjustable resistance, and best of all is that it is completely silent. Coworkers around you won’t even know you’re burning mad calories on your FitBit. This is equipped with Bluetooth and works with an app so yes, you can track your strides, time, distance, and set goals. This is going to cost you around $347, and comes in black and red or various shades of grey.

The Moleskine Smart Writing Set brings written text to the digital world

Some habits don’t die easily, and for me, writing notes on paper is one of them. I love typing out long-winded text posts as much as the next person, but when I’m just jotting down thoughts or ideas, I want to be looking at my own handwriting. The only problem is that when I want to move those thoughts and ideas to the digital world, I have to type everything out and try and convey my doodles as best I can through text.

If you’re a professional creative type who needs to be able to write and doodle to your hearts content, but also needs to put that content online or share it with coworkers, you’ll want to streamline transferring that information as much as possible. The Molskine Smart Writing Set is aiming to bridge the gap here as it comes with a paper tablet (better described as a notebook), a Pen+, and the companion app which you can use on whatever device you’d like. Once it’s synced up, you’ll be able to capture every pen stroke on the page to your screen with no down time waiting for it to load. That’s right, real time transfer!

The dotted layout in the paper tablet works with Pen+ so that it can recognize what is supposed to go where on the page. The annoying bit is that you must be certain you’re synced up, or all of your ideas will be in ink only and you’ll have to copy them over again, so you’d have to not be the forgetful sort. This is a $199.99 set that comes with the paper tablet, Pen+, a USB cable for recharging the smartpen, and a pen tip ink refill. Replacement paper tablets will cost you $29.95, because you’ll always need more when your ideas are filling up pages at a time.

The GlowForge 3D Laser Printer will let your creativity run wild

Are you the type of person who wants to surround yourself with works of art, and have reminders of creative endeavors everywhere? If you don’t already know how to make traditional pieces of art, it’s a pretty expensive endeavor and takes a long time to teach yourself (definitely try it though because it’s fun!). What if you could make whatever you wanted out of almost any kind of material or improve the visual quality of things that you already have with little more work than having an idea?

The GlowForge will let you do all of that and more, as this is a 3D Laser Printer that built its design off of laser cutter and engraver technology. This means you can not only cut out a design, but engrave on top of it as well, adding in whatever crazy details you can come up with. Yes, even a doodle of a stick figure can be engraved into wood, leather, acrylic, fabric, cardboard, or paper. I don’t know about you, but having a laser cutter/engraver with the precision to the breadth of a human hair is pretty impressive.

The interior camera will show you on your computer screen where the design will land, and if it needs adjusting you can move it with a mouse or finger. Thanks to the lens that moves faster than the laser, materials that are irregular or curved will still be cut appropriately. It can also detect materials, so your iphone or laptop can be engraved without fear that they’ll be sliced in half. It connects to WiFi, works with most platforms and programs, and only needs to plug into a single outlet. While this would normally be $3,995, it’s presently $2,395 on pre-order. Happy creating!

The Plantronics Voyager 5200 Series makes any call sound professional

For a lot of people the 9-5 grind seems like a dream come true compared to the workload they normally face. Oftentimes you’ll get business calls while walking down the street, on vacation, or out at a bar after hours. You can’t ignore it, because every time you don’t pick up you’re ruining yourself further down road, or jamming lines of communication. Wherever you are, you want to make sure you’re receiving calls and answering with enough clarity to make sure neither side is being misunderstood.

Whether wind, construction, or rain is trying to muscle its way into your call, it’ll certainly have a hard time if you’re using the Plantronics Voyager 5200. This headset has four microphones that work together to cancel out noise, which is helped by the WindSmart tech which will determine the direction of the wind and respond appropriately. This was tested to make sure it’s comfortable all day regardless of how uncomfortably long some of your conversations might be. You also don’t have to worry about wearing it during a light drizzle, in humidity, or while getting your sweat on running to catch the train as it has a nano-coating to protect it from moisture.

In addition to making you sound awesome and being comfy, this has caller ID that will let you know who’s incoming, and you can say “answer” or “ignore” to manage calls. Through a dedicated button, you’ll be able to activate Siri, Google Now, or Cortana. The portable charging dock will give you 14 extra hours of talk time, which is twice what it’s capable of on a full charge on its own. This is a $119.99 purchase that is likely for those that don’t ever seem to turn off from work mode.

The Logitech G930 provides surround sound for gaming immersion

When you’re playing games, you want everything you need for the entire game session to be within arms reach. Prior planning and convenience are key for getting the most out of your free time. To make sure nothing can disturb you when you’re in the zone, you’re going to want a fully immersive experience. This means a crystal clear picture on your monitor, precise keyboard and mouse responses, and headphones that provides audio so crisp you can hear a leaf crinkle as the virtual you steps on it.

If you have an entire setup that fits that description, but want a better headset than your current peripheral, the Logitech G930 is an option that should boost the quality without draining your bank account dry. This is a wireless headset that will keep you going for 10 hours at a time before needing to be recharged via USB stand, and will provide you with 7.1 surround sound. The headband is lined with memory foam, designed to help make that 10 hour period as comfortable as possible.

The ear cups isolate sound so no exterior noise will interrupt what the 40mm drivers push out, and the noise-canceling mic can be folded away when it’s not in use. There are also three programmable G-keys which you can assign whatever function you’d like for in-game goodness or media controls. This is a $79.99 purchase that is likely to make your gaming experience feel a little more like a real world one.
