The Anker Nebula Capsule is an all in one package. Similar devices are often much larger and require additional components in order to really function like external speakers, but the Anker Nebula Capsule has it all, and all in the size of a soda can. To be fair, the image brightness does leave just a little bit to be desired, but when you consider the size of the device, the ease of use, and the fact that it includes high quality speakers, it’s easy to be a little bit forgiving and simply draw the curtains a little tighter. It’s perfect for everything from office presentations on the road to turning your campsite into a movie theater. And at around $350 from Anker it’s accessibly priced.

Varjo Mixed Reality Headset
While VR may not have lived up to the hype that the early 2000s gave it, that doesn't stop companies like Varjo from trying to push the envelope. The Mixed Reality Headset aims to mimic the the human eye and provides a set of 0.7-inch, Full HD Sony-sourced MicroOLED displays, both of which can offer 3,000 pixel-per-inch density and are magnified to fill up roughly a 20-degree field of view. It features eye tracking and a set of mirrors that move the projected images in front of whereever your eyes are looking. Kits are expected to ship out in early 2019. We'll follow to see if this one lives up to the hype.
Blloc Minimalist Smartphone
2018 is shaping out to be a year filled with a push towards minimalism in the cell phone space. Companies are realizing that some consumers are feeling overwhelmed and anxious by the constant sensory and information overload that modern smart phones provide. The Blloc smartphone is the latest iteration of these devices. Created to place productivity first and distractions second, the phone uses a monochrome UI to simplify your workspace and only display relevant apps when needed. The controls and interface is built around principles of 'less is more' so that you won't constantly get distracted every time you pick up your phone. The phone will debut later in the year and can be pre-ordered now from Blloc directly.
