Are you looking for a gift for the geek in your life? As a tech nerd and photo enthusiast here are 5 things I want or already own and love. Get these gifts that any geek would love to unwrap.
Black Box G1W Dashcam $69.95
If you’ve seen any viral video through the view of a windshield — it was captured by something like this. Be aware that the cam is finicky when it comes to the memory you use. I’ve had luck with this Transcend 32 gb class 10 card.
Stop holding your phone in the car, putting it on your cup holder or glancing down at it in your lap like a lunatic. Lock your phone down in this simple and versatile mount, punch in your destination and drive like a boss.
This little gadget is for the doomsday prepper or happy camper in your life. It gets a lot done for not a lot of money. You’ll have emergency power for your cell phone, a radio, a light. Charge it with AC, solar or hand crank.
Voltron Action Figure $65.60
Grown men can still play with toys. Voltron is an 80’s cartoon hero consisting of five pilots and five awesome robot lions. This is meant to be a collector’s item, but posing it all around the house is too much fun. Trust me. Oh, and the box plays the theme from the show with that classic voice you’ll recognize as Optimus Prime from Transformers.
WL Toys V262 Multi-copter $61.57
From the mildly interested model aviator to the seasoned pro, this quad-rotored craft is easy to fly, fast and inexpensive. If you break it … you’re not out much cash. It’ll lift a GoPro easily for aerial video.
GoPro Hero 4 Black $499.99
Okay, I know I’m not an extreme sports phenom or anything. My life is fairly boring, but being able to shoot crystal clear, extreme slow motion HD footage at 1080p, 120 fps has massive appeal.
