5 Cool Gadgets You Should Check Out

I know I keep mentioning how much of a geek I truly am.

So I decided to share my geekiness with you and take you on a journey into my brain and the things that make me tick.

Mainly, it’s just a bunch of cool and possibly weird stuff on the interwebs that I pay attention to.

I have to stay on top of tech trends and specifically anything having to do with IM (internet marketing) so I always stumble across the cool and the weird.

Augmented reality sneakers have arrived

We both know it was simply a matter of time before these kicks popped up. AR is going to continue to be the “new thing” with all the hype and new products that come along with it.

Japanese footwear company Onitsuka Tiger teamed up with fashion label Anrealage to create their new augmented reality sneakers.

I’m not really sure what the trailer is conveying, but it’s pretty cool to watch.

The folks over at Mashable tested them out and were pretty underwhelmed, noting that it only works on one shoe (the left).

Would I buy this? This techie is not nearly excited enough to want to try these. I’ll wait till they look a lot cooler and do more before I get all pumped.

Blimp Drones?

First and foremost: Mommy Likey.

If you’ve read about my gadget lust before, you’ve probably seen several mentions of drones. I like them.

A lot.

So when I saw these blimp drones by a new company called Spacial, I was majorly geeking out.

Would I buy this? Absofrigginlutely! There is no more thinking on this one. I would buy this in a heartbeat and spend oodles of hours creating all kinds of cool videos.


I always get excited when I read about anything that helps make my outdoors enjoyment more enjoyable.

If it makes water sports, running or riding more enjoyable, I’m in!

The Mirage Eclipse by Hobie promises to do just that.

I want one and I want one now.

Would I buy this? This is a super easy “Heck Yeah!”

Piggyback Driver

According to Mashable, this product is for those who think a parent’s “self respect is overrated.” PiggyBack Driver enables kids to “drive” their parents while on a piggyback ride.

Would you get one for yourself or someone with a kid?

Would I buy this? I am not sure that I would buy this.  Then again, it could turn into a huge thing. I’ve been wrong about many an item that later becomes super trendy.

Foldio3 Portable Studio

Foldio3 is a portable studio that allows anyone to take high quality photos. The third iteration is currently on Kickstarter and has raised over $800,000.

It is super compact when folded for easy carrying and dramatically expands into a 25 inch x 25 inch studio.

It has a magnetic structure which enables setup to be in 10 seconds. It has both white abd black backdrops, three LED strips and a Halo bar for different lighting options that are controlled by a dimming controller.

Would I buy this? Yeppers. Mami needs to up her photo game. I will be hitting the purchase button on this puppy as soon as I’m done with this post.

I’d love to hear which was your favorite and what you would actually spend your hard earned cash on.

    I’m a don’t-buy-it-unless-you-need-it kind of person, so probably the only gadget I would go for is the Foldio3 Portable Studio. I could really use that one!

    I think the pedalboards look fun. You’d definitely get a workout, but fun nonetheless.

    Okay, these are all pretty cool. I’m a low tech person in general but I love knowing what’s being developed.

    I want the padle board! My husband and I love kayaking this would just add to the fun and change it up!


    (July 18, 2017 - 1:06 pm)

    I so want to do the pedal board and being in Miami I should have a lot of opportunities. Also, I love the adventure that it presents

    They do look cool but I would not buy them. I understand the hype but really, I would not know what to do with them. xx corinne

    Piggyback driver looks awesome and fun! But I think this will definitely make me tired. The kids will probably want to use it everyday and use me as their personal driver everywhere!

    I want all of this! So cool. I especially need that portable studio for better photos. I’ll add it to my Christmas list 😉

    As a Luddite, I must admit that I had never heard of any of these gadgets before. Some people are sure to be excited though.

    I like all the gadgets you have listed on your blog. I would prefer to have piggyback driver. My kids would love this


    (July 18, 2017 - 8:57 pm)

    The peddleboard and the light foldio3 thing yup yup yup. Especially when I’m doing product shots of brands I’m working with. I always shoot in bright daylight and add good filters but that foldio3 would be awesome!! The peddleboard would be solo cool too!!

    I need one of those Pedal Boards pronto! I would have so much fun. I love the wonderful things that caught your eye this week.

    Love the Foldio portable studio idea! It’s something I currently need! Thanks for introducing these cool products to us!


    (July 19, 2017 - 6:53 am)

    I think the pedal boards are a good idea. I”m going to send a pic to my (grown) kids and tell them I can go surfing with them now, hahaha

    These gadgets all look like they are so cool. I am not super techy but I could definitely get down with some of these.


    (July 19, 2017 - 9:12 am)

    Would have loved to procure the pedalboard but that’s a “no no” cause am afraid of the river. The Foldio3 Portable Studio is a must have.


    (July 19, 2017 - 10:50 am)

    I am not a gadget freak. I really don’t know what to do with them and how they are helpful.

    I guess I’m somewhat of a gadget nerd. I was interested in a few of the things on the list. I’m not sold on the Piggyback driver gadget. I deal with that without the gadget already. Lol


    (July 19, 2017 - 8:10 pm)

    All of the tech looks very interesting on here. I would definitely love to purchase some of those. Although even after watching the clip I am trying to understand the purpose of the augmented reality sneakers.

    I love reading about new gadgets and testing them out in tech shops. I don’t think I’d be buying any of them soon.


    (July 20, 2017 - 9:20 pm)

    The Foldio Studio and the Pedal Board are my fave! The studio because I could def. use this now as a blogger and the Pedal Board because I’m a water baby and that seems ohhh so fun!

    Jennifer L

    (July 21, 2017 - 12:24 am)

    Omg I want all these gadgets. But I definitely want to check out the Foldio3 Portable Studio, it looks like a game changer.


    (October 10, 2017 - 7:52 am)

    Oh I need that photo studio for sure and some day. I’m going to try the surf board. So neat
