Yes, it’s that time of the year again. The holiday season is nigh upon us and your parents are already beginning to call and bug you about what you want for Christmas. As you’re already aware, there are only so many ways to tell them that you don’t know what you want yet, because it is still 80 degrees out and Thanksgiving is still more than a month away. You tell them that you’ll think about it and reach out when you have an idea. But, you never do. As a result, you end up with a pair of too-big pajamas and a Lego set, even though you’re an adult … with a family. Let’s put an end to that with a list of cool tech toys and gadgets that your family can get you for Christmas. The years of never knowing what you want are now at an end.
These nifty little buggers have been updated and improved. The Bluetooth tracking devices now feature an IP67 waterproof rating, come with a 400-foot range, and house a battery that lasts up to one year. Lost items can be identified through a QR code, as well as the Tile Network. The scan and secure feature prevents tracking abuse.
This odd contraption is the world’s first open-source robotic dog to support ROS navigation, SLAM and OpenCV AI functions. The not-terrifying robotic dog is perfect for those looking to learn and experiment with robotics. The robotic puppy walks, bounds, and trots. For more information on robotic dogs feel free to watch the “Metalhead” episode of Black Mirror.
