Whether you have your TV in a bright room and just can’t get over the glare, or maybe you just want to see the full spectrum of color, or perhaps you just want the best quality out there, the Vizio P-Series Quantum is the TV for you. They use what they’re calling “UltraBright 2000” technology, which just means that the TV can achieve 2,000 nits of brightness. For those of you who don’t know what a nit is, it measures brightness and 2,000 is really bright. The display also has excellent fidelity of contrast, so the bright parts of whatever you’re watching get really bright, and the dark parts stay super dark. With all the other perks of a new smart TV, this 4K display might just be the perfect TV for anyone looking to blow their friends away with an ultra bright display, or anyone fighting the living room glare.

POWERUP 3.0 Smartphone Controlled Paper Airplane
Everyone has their own perfect paper airplane design, but now you can power those up with the POWERUP 3.0 Smartphone Controlled Paper Airplane engine. It can attach to almost any paper airplane design, and it’s controlled from your smartphone. Conceptually it’s clearly pretty simple, but the crash proof design and reliable Bluetooth capabilities, alone with the designs and extras included in the kit, makes this a fun gadget worth picking up. It’s fun for all ages. The product does rely on relatively straightforward aerodynamics. There are no stabilizers or horizontal props that we’re used to seeing in drones these days, so if your paper airplane folding skills aren’t the best, or if the weather isn’t cooperating, it might throw a wrench into the works, but when conditions are great it’s tons of fun. And right now you can get a good deal for it on amazon for under $50.
