The Best Tech Gifts To Give Out This Year

Let’s face it: we wouldn’t know what to do if it weren’t for our electronic devices. Our smartphones help us take pictures, record videos, jot down notes, and oh yeah, make phone calls, too. Our media centers help us watch the latest movie releases and TV shows easily. Our computers are essential to our jobs. Every year, there’s always something better than the year before. This year, why don’t you get the very best for your loved ones?

- Get the iPhone 5s in gold, space gray or silver. The new iPhone comes with iOS 7 and a bunch of slick new features, including Touch ID, which uses your fingerprint as a lock key, the A7 chip, which delivers fast performance, and a new 8 mega pixel iSight camera. You can get the new iPhone 5s from any number of carriers from stores like Target and Walmart.

- Want to watch movies the way they were meant to be seen? Check out the 3M mobile projector, which is portable, and can connect to all Apple devices. You can hold your own movie festivals or marathon TV screenings anywhere you want, whether it’s in the living room, or in your own backyard. You can find the projector at stores like Walgreens.

- Know a bookworm who can’t stand reading on tablets? Give them the gift of a Kindle Paperwhite, which is designed with readers in mind. The Kindle Paperwhite has an eInk screen that allows for easy reading without glare, and also includes a built-in light so that you can read the screen in low light. Kindle owners can also look forward to GoodReads integration, which will allow them to be social with their friends about their reading habits, and Kindle Freetime, which will help your kids track their reading progress and reward them with achievements when they meet their goals.

- If you have $2200 to spare, you could drop it on the Makerbot Replicator 2, which is a real 3-D printer, and is the perfect gift for someone who has everything. They are guaranteed not to have this. This 3-D printer will fabricate objects out of polymers, based on your own designs, or plans that can be downloaded online.

- Have a super-adventurous friend who lives to bungee-jump, snowboard, and skydive? The GoPro 3D HERO Housing and Sync Cable is the perfect gift. Strap this camera to your friend’s head on her next adventure, and hit record. You can simultaneously download the footage with the sync cable, and have a permanent record of all the falls, jumps, and crazy antics.

- The Wii U Deluxe is the next step in the evolution of gaming consoles. This system comes with the Wii U GamePad controller, which has its own screen, and can be used either alone or in conjunction with the main console and other Wii remotes. The GamePad has its own camera, stylus, microphone, and support for Near Field Communication (NFC). Play in your own sandbox with the Wii’s built-in software such as Wii U Chat, Nintendo TVii, or immerse yourself in the Miiverse online community.
