Sony Aibo Robot Dog

Sony released a first version of this robot dog several years ago, but due to the limitations in robotics at the time it was pretty basic by today's standards. This latest iteration of the Sony Aibo features dozens of modern advancements that include artificial intelligence in addition to robotics. The look and feel of the robot is much more friendly and welcoming and actually resembles a real dog as opposed to the clunky sci-fi pet look of its predecessor. The movements are fluid and natural thanks to the ultracompact 1 and 2 axis actuators. The internal software is what makes the major difference with the Aibo, allowing it to learn and understand your preferences as well as your home and other environments that it will be spending time with. If you're not ready for the commitment of a real pet that you requires actual food and exercise, then this little guy might be just what you're looking for.

GoPro HERO (2018)
GoPro has just released their latest models and there is a ton that we love. First off, the price point. At $199, this is an attractive offer for people who were balking at $300+ for older models and saying 'my phones camera is fine.' The Hero shoots HD video at 1440p and 1080p at 60 frames per second, can take stills up to 10-megapixels and has added an electronic video stabilization system to keep quality maximized even during the most extreme circumstances. This model includes a 2-inch touch display, voice controls, waterproofing to 10 meters and backwards compatibility with all mounting hardware and accessories. If you're looking to upgrade your existing GoPro or need something new to film your adventures, the Hero ticks all the boxes.

SD to Lightning Adapter
One of the best pieces of travel gear for any photographer out there is a device which lets you import photos and videos from any SD card directly onto your phone. Although the concept is simple, many don’t think about how convenient it is to own. While some cameras these days do have the ability to wirelessly import photos to your mobile devices, most don’t, and even when they do the process can be a little counterintuitive, and doesn’t compare to the peace of mind and quality of image that comes with importing the file directly to your phone. The plug and play nature of the process is straightforward and easy. Simply plug in the adapter to your iPhone and an import screen will automatically pop up. It’s that easy. It’s perfect for anyone who wants to have the highest quality images of a DSLR combined with the shareability of a mobile device, and it’s great for travel when you might not have a full computer with you to import the files. Although even for everyday use sometimes it’s just better to cut out the middle man. You can get it directly from Apple for around $30, but we recommend getting a third party adapter. They’re the same hardware, but for sometimes only a third of the price, like the one from Walmart available now for just under $10.
