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.

5. PowerPot 5

We’ve all been there, the electric goes out, and the first thing that goes through our minds is “How much charge does my phone have??”  With the PowerPot, all you need is a heat source and water, and you can charge any device that charges via a USB port.

  1. I want the Power pot. Our electric has been out and of course my phone is about dead.
