End-of-the-year gadget releases

Some things are worth waiting for. The year is almost over and all the gadgets that were rumored to be released will soon be on the market, finally. With just a couple of weeks until Black Friday, here are some of the top gadgets we all hope to get.

Asus GX500

This is not a common gaming laptop. It’s only 0.75 inches thick, weighs 4.85 pounds and has an intelligent dual-fan cooling system, making it the ultimate laptop for gamers on the go. As for the inside, the GX500 has an Intel Core i7 processor with the latest Nvidia GeForce GTX 860M graphics and a 15.6 inch screen that features VisualMaster display technology for better clarity. There is still no price information, but it is rumored to be around $1,900.

Drop

Cooks can now Stop eyeballing whenever they are trying to measure ingredients while cooking. Go pro, like a real chef, and weigh your ingredients properly. That’s where “Drop” comes in, the smart kitchen scale app can be connected wirelessly to your iPad. Once connected, the app will also help you with cooking, providing recipes and suggestions. The cost is listed in $99, but you can get a discount if you pre-order it.

Panono Panoramic Ball Camera

Get all the angles with this sphere-shaped camera with 36 image sensors located around it. Get panoramic pictures or any crazy idea you can have with this gadget and connect it with your Android or iOS app via Bluetooth or post pictures directly via Wi-Fi. The price is $599.

Jibo

We have all been expecting the moment when robots help you do the household chores like in the movies. Well, that time has come. Jibo is a small white device with two high-resolution cameras, 360-degree microphones and natural language processing. Unfortunately, it’s not programmed to clean, but it is willing to help you with almost everything else: cooking, taking pictures, reading emails, etc. The price will be $1,931.

Om One

Apparently, levitation is the next step in technology. Either that or it’s just for looking trendy. Om One is being introduced as the world’s first levitating Bluetooth speaker, which helps eliminating the transmission of sound vibrations. Price is $199, with an additional charge of $20 for international shipping.
