Each year, the IT industry has some pleasant surprises in store for us. Here is the list of the most fun gadgets on the market right now.
UBTech Jimu Astrobot Kit
This kit lets you assemble three cute robots in a similar way to Lego. Each robot can move around and has sensors for recognizing and manipulating the environment. It is a great toy for children to learn the basics of programming, by means of an app that offers numerous ways to determine the behaviour of the robot.
Although its processor is not as strong as its competitors’ and it does not offer as much multiplayer options, this new gaming tablet brings together the Wii and the DS in a merger that could rightly be called revolutionary. An increasing number of games are being created for this outstanding new gaming device that can transform from a portable system to home console in an instant.
Sony Xperia Touch
This gadget is fun as well as useful, as it lets you turn any surface into a touch screen! It is still in its early stages, but we can expect this to become a regular household item. Imagine its range of use: you can play games on a big screen across your entire wall, watch movies as if you are in a cinema, show photos to all your friends at the same time, and much more!
Your new adorable robot friend, Cozmo is a small truck that can move freely around the room, sing, and do all kinds of fun stuff. It has sensors for facial recognition, so it will be able to recognize you and show you its undivided love and devotion.
