Kinect For Windows

At this point, we're all familiar with the Kinect, Microsoft's motion-sensing peripheral that made gaming on the console less about moving your fingers and more about moving your body (or your mouth). Now, the Kinect For Windows promises to do the same thing for the box that sits on your desk, rather than your media shelf. But in spite of its obvious usefulness in the gaming arena, one of the best things about the Kinect was its hackability — letting developers use it for a range of purposes Microsoft never could have dreamt of — and the Windows version provides the same DIY potential on your PC. But at nearly half the price of the XBox One, you wouldn't be faulted for wondering if the juice was really worth the squeeze.

  • Google Cardboard VR Headset

    Let's face it: as cool as the Oculus Rift is, its limited utility makes it a tough sell for the price. But what if there was a way to make a VR headset for just a few dollars? Well, that's exactly the idea behind the Google Cardboard VR Headset. Using nothing but cardboard, a couple of lenses, a couple magnets, velcro, a rubber band, an app, and some very simple instructions, you can transform your Android handset into a full-on VR viewer, provided you don't mind having a piece of cardboard hanging off your head as you "ooh" and "aah" your way through the available demos.

  • Google Glass Titanium Eyewear

    One of the biggest strikes against Google Glass — if not the biggest, really — is the extremely odd looking hardware. While it still features the rather huge box, camera, and floating screen, Google Glass Titanium Eyewear does look quite a bit more normal than its predecessor. This new collection includes three different frames — Bold, Thin, and Split — that arrive with Glass and a UV lens clip, and can even be outfitted with prescription lenses to give you the best excuse we've yet heard for not taking them off.
