DJI Phantom 3 Professional 4K Quadcopter Drone with Video Camera 

In the world of aerial drone photography, we’d have to argue that the DJI Phantom 3 is probably the single best little drone for the job and additionally state that its built-in 4K ultra HD video camera is probably one of the best choices on the current market, with the best overall quality of 4K video and still photos created.

Furthermore the Phantom 3 Pro offers a 3-axis gimbal for nearly total control of that same footage you’re watching as it’s actually being filmed.

Amazon 7-inch Fire Tablet

fire-tabletTwo words: Stocking stuffer. Other tablet makers like Apple and Microsoft are focusing on larger, more laptop-like tablets; Amazon cut costs and frills to come out with a 7-inch digital paperback. You can buy better screens and processors, but the Fire has pretty much everything you need in a tablet to read books, watch Netflix or play games. (There’s also an accident-proof $100 Kids Edition, which comes with access to a library of child-friendly content.)

LittleBits Gadgets & Gizmos Building Kit

You don’t have to understand electronic engineering, you just have to appreciate cause and effect. Press this button, that fan turns on; when light hits a sensor, the motor spins—the more light, the faster. The latest LittleBits kit comes with extras to provide these imaginative constructions with shape and style.


Apple iPhone 6s

For instance, previews of links appear in emails if you poke them. It’ll change how we use our phones. With Live Photos, you can capture 1.5 seconds of video and audio with each snap.
