2VR: The VR Headset for Everyone

What is it?
The 2VR is a simplified VR headset that looks more like a traditional pair of glasses than a bulky headset that straps around your head.

Why do I like it?
I like the design of the 2VR because it’s less bulky and more portable that traditional VR headsets. This is one of the first VR headsets that I’ve seen that can fold up to fit in your pocket. It can accommodate phones with 4 – 5.5 inch sized displays and comes with an immersive cover that doubles as a protective sleeve.

Presence 360: Smartphone Security Camera Robot

What is it?
The Presence 360 is an iOS and Android enabled smartphone security robot.

Why do I like it?
I like the Presence 360 because it can use your old smartphone as the camera. It also features pan-and-tilt rotation and can be set to automatically move to specific vantage points after a preset length of time. The hardware/software combo is also capable of 2-way video calls on most devices. One thing not really talked about is if there will be a monthly subscription for cloud storage of motion clips.

What is it?
The easyFeed Automatic is an automatic food and water dispenser for your fur babies. It makes caring for a pet from anywhere convenient and interactive.

And when food levels run low, it will automatically reorder from Amazon.

    Do people really ration water for their dogs? We have giant bowls, and always keep them full.

    Also, that VR thing is really pushing the boundaries of the definition of Virtual Reality.
