Top 5 Things You Want for Christmas
2015 has been a year of innovation, and with Christmas right around the corner it is time to splurge and try some of the great new inventions. Here are 5 of my favorites, available today.
1. Meccano MeccaNoid G15 KS
Everyone needs a personal robot and the MeccaNoid G15 KS is the one you have been waiting for. It uses voice recognitions and has over 1000 phrases that make the robot seem like one of the family. It can respond to questions and tell jokes.
This robot is 4 foot tall and 1223 parts making it perfect for kids who love Legos. It can be made into the traditional robot form, or into other forms such as a scorpion or raptor and more. It comes with a rechargeable battery and charger.
Retail Price $399. 99
If those 1223 parts seem daunting, the Meccano MeccaNoid G15 is only 2 feet tall and has 621 parts. While it is smaller (and cheaper) it does not come with batteries.
Retail Price $179.99
2. Sphero BB-8 Star
For every Star Wars fan, who has dreamed of owning a droid, BB-8 is ready for you. It has an augmented-reality engine which will turn videos into holographic messages. Driving mode lets users control the droid from a smartphone. The BB-8 is adaptive and responds to your voice.

4. Kolibree – 3D Motion Toothbrush and App
There are coaching apps for just about everything, so why not tooth brushing? The Kolibree toothbrush comes with an app that gives real-time feedback and has games with collectable badges and score levels. To anyone who has tried to get kids to brush, this just might be a lifesaver!
