The SX-70 is a true legend in the photographic world, as it was the first shooter to take integral instant film, and the first SLR to feature a folding body. The Polaroid SX-70 Camera ($300) isn't a modern remake of this classic — it is the classic, painstakingly restored so it works perfectly — especially with Impossible Project film — folds flat, and looks great even when it's just sitting around. Instragram's got nothing on this.
Despite the proliferation of iPads tablets, there's still a demand for regular ol' eReaders — and the new Sony Reader Wi-Fi ($150) is as good a choice as any. Billed as "the lightest touch screen 6-inch eReader ever," it weighs under six ounces, and features a six-inch E-Ink touch screen, compatibility with common file formats like EPUB, PDF and TXT, 2GB of storage capacity, a battery life of over one month, and, of course, built-in Wi-Fi for downloading new titles.
We've been waiting a long time for the "digital sketchpad" to become reality — and as cool as tablets are, they haven't really been able to nail it. But the Wacom Inkling ($200) looks like it has. It includes a small receiver that attaches to any sketchbook or normal piece of paper and an electronic sketch pen that work together to record your sketches stroke-by-stroke, which can then be transferred over USB and into Photoshop, Illustrator, Sketchbook Pro, or any number of traditional image formats.

Looking to ge the best possible sound out of your iPod, iPhone, or whatever it is you use for on-the-go audio? Before you plug it into your car or home stereo, run it though the JBL MS-2 Pocket Digital Processor ($200). This pint-sized processor uses DSP to optimize the sound for the acoustic characteristics or your speakers and listening area, improving clarity and stereo imaging. See (hear) it in action.
If you're watching 3D content, odds are you're being forced to wear some questionably fashionable glasses — so why not make the most of it? Vuzix Wrap 1200 3D Video Eyewear ($500) connects to any compatible video source via component or composite connections, and uses dual 16:9, 852x480 LCDs mounted in the lenses to create the equivalent of a 75-inch screen that's just ten feet away. Other features include detachable noise-isolating earphones, AccuTilt adjustment to keep your eyes comfortable, and battery life of up to seven hours.
