Drones are all the rage these days and finally were starting to see some that can navigate the waters like their aerial counterparts. Able to dive down to depths of 500 feet, the Titan is a perfect tool for the photographer that lives to capture underwater treasures. Six thrusters propel the drone and proprietary software allows you to get steady and smooth footage and sharp imaging even with unpredictable ocean conditions. There is a 4k sensor and a 160 degree wide angle lens that capture 8-megapixel stills and 1080p live streamed footage. You control the drone as you would a typical video game controller and the 3000-lumen LED lights allow you light up darker environments. Also includes a hardshell carrying case and a battery with up to four hours of run time. This Kickstarter is fully funded so you can preorder now.

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.
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.
