Five Awesome Gadgets I Want But Can’t Have
You know that sinking feeling when you realize you’ve lost something? Well, last Saturday, I had the unfortunate experience (not my first) of losing my cell phone. I had just used it in a cab to make a call – two minutes later when I arrived at my destination and got out of the cab, I grabbed my pocket, and felt nothing. My heart dropped, I turned around and watched the taxi turn the corner…with my phone. Tragic, I know. After a few unsuccessful days of trying to track down my poor baby, I gave up. I finally coughed up the couple hundred bucks to upgrade to the iPhone 5.
When I was in the Verizon store getting my new phone, I felt like a 5-year-old kid in a candy store…so many gadgets to play with, yet no money to buy them. So with that, I give you, the top five most awesome gadgets I want to own, but can’t (yet):
Google Glass ($400)
Expected to be on the market by the end of 2013, Google Glass allows you to view things you would normally see on a smart phone — through a pair of glasses. Confused? Here, just watch:
Nike+ Fuelband ($150)
This hi-tech wristband encourages users to stay active by measuring daily exercises through a unique point system called Fuel points. Sensors measure intensity of movement, step count and calorie intake. And of course, it syncs right to your iPhone.
GoPro Hero3 Black Edition ($400)
The new GoPro action sports camera delivers amazing image quality unmatched by its rivals. I want this camera for when my dream of becoming a world class surfer comes true.
Samsung 85-inch Floating TV ($38,000)
The world’s largest Ultra High-Definition TV, which can be adjusted like an easel to make it feel as if it’s floating. Can you imagine watching the game on this thing and playing Spogo? Yes, please.
MarketBot Replicator 2 ($2,200)
I really have no idea what I’d use a 3D printer for; I just know that I want one.
