Keecker

If the idea of sentient robots one day invading our homes sends luddite chills down your spine, do not read further — because that day is one step closer. Keecker is an Android-powered robot that follows you around your home, projecting content from your smartphone, or directly from the device itself onto your walls. You can use it to play games with your phone as the controller, watch video projected onto the walls, listen to 360-degree immersive sound controlled by an app on your smartphone, Skype with friends while walking around your house, or use it as a nanny-cam by telling it where to go in your place. In addition to entertainment, you can also use it as a home security robot — and though it won't shoot lasers at intruders — it can monitor air quality and let you check in on your home remotely. Since it is completely wireless, has a built-in battery that lasts up to a week, and can run any Android app out there, the possibilities are pretty much endless.

  • ChefJet 3D Printer

    Just in case chefs and bakers were feeling left out of the whole 3D printing revolution, the ChefJet 3D Printer ($5,000-$10,000) is made not for engineering nerds and at-home DIYers, but for the culinary-elite who want to take their creations a step further. Instead of printing in PLA filament, these printers make three-dimensional creations out of sugar in a number of flavors including chocolate, vanilla, mint, sour apple, cherry, and watermelon. Available in two variations, there is a smaller monochrome printer meant to sit on a counter, and a full-color professional model that will print creations as large as ten by 14 by eight inches. Sweet treats may never be the same again.

  • MakerBot Replicator Mini

    The biggest complaint so far when it comes to consumer-level 3D printing has been the barrier to access — 3D printers are too expensive, too hard to use, too large to fit into a small space, and materials are too hard to come by. The MakerBot Replicator Mini ($1,400) takes huge leaps into making 3D printing at home a lot more approachable. By reducing the price to almost a quarter of their previous models, they've made it a little more attainable for the average guy, while making its footprint considerably smaller. With a reimagined interface, wireless connectivity, a digital store for downloading designs, and touch-and-print capability, it's never been easier to get started with rapid prototyping and modeling. An onboard camera for monitoring the process, a replaceable extruder, and compatibility with Makerbot PLA filament just make it that much easier.
