Gifts and gadgets

It's Christmas time and we would like to dedicate an entire R20 Break to gifts, gadgets and tips to let you be a tech pioneer in your wishlist.

Let’s start with cameras, always more small, powerful and dynamic, like the Polaroid Cube, tiny and colourful, RE camera by HTC, to play and share with your friends, and the brand new Kodak Action Cam SP360. Too expensive? Give a try to the little Qumox SJ400.

There’s no Christmas without lights, so bring the app-enabled Lumenplay sets, experiment on smart-home with littleBits dedicated kit and, talking about houses, bring your own must-to-have gadget for 2015: connected thermostat. Choose between NetAtmo, Tado and, obviously, Nest.

Innovation is disrupting every business model, the Christmas gifts, too. So say hello to the Netflix-for-toys startups showing up around the world: Kiwicrate, Sparkboxtoys and the brillant Lego renting service Pley. And for not-so-little kids we suggest the Code Black Drone and the most advanced consumer drone in commerce, the brand new Inspire 1 by DJI.

Feeling more digital? Print your entire Instagram year in one poster, review your 2014 in music with Spotify and mind to follow Santa through the SantaTracker Google service. Want more? Stay tuned with new ideas through advent calendars 24ways and Christmas Experiments.

There’s time (and links) just for one, and so we greet you, looking forward for the 2015, with the most useful tool to repair everything, Sugru.

Enjoy your holidays, geeks!
