Electronic Cigarettes
The electronic cigarette and vaping craze has taken the world by storm, providing smokers with a new, more affordable and less intrusive way to enjoy nicotine. E-cigarette and vaping solutions come in a wide variety of styles and designs: from cigarette-sized portable vaping solutions to mega-sized box mods, there is something for everyone.

Virtual Reality
Many of us remember the classic Virtual Boy Nintendo game systems that came out in the 1990s. While many had high hopes for the console, it never really took off due to tech limitations. The latest line in virtual reality – like the Oculus Rift VR System – promises to up the ante when it comes to virtual reality. Shoppers can find virtual reality solutions that encompass the entire head, and even those that utilize select mobile phones to provide a fully-immersive 3D, virtual experience.
Self-Balance Scooters
The Segway was an interesting yet expensive concept that came out way ahead of its time. Why not consider a self-balance scooter: the latest in portable transportation that can carry you from point A to point B? Many of these self-balance scooters can be found for just a few hundred pounds and provide ranges from 10 to 20 miles when fully charged. With visibility and safety mechanisms included, the scooter can be used day or night. Most versions are also able to traverse grassy, bumpy or paved surfaces alike.
Mobile Phone Battery Cases
As more and more daily use of our mobile devices continue to demand more and more battery life, boosting that above and beyond what our devices provide is a good idea. Many manufacturers are beginning to offer reliable and durable mobile phone battery cases. Apple itself just released an iPhone case with built-in battery for $99, making it possible to nearly double the use of an iPhone in between charges.
Smart Home Integration
The new era of the smart home is here! With so many gadgets on the market today, it’s no surprise that an entire industry is arising around the concept of smart home gadgets. From intelligent light bulbs that can be controlled via your mobile phone to the syncing of door locks, window locks and security systems from afar, there are literally dozens of smart home gadgets that can commandeer seemingly manual elements of the home and bring them “online”.
