Pianocade

Combine the joy of making music with the nostalgia of a classic arcade machine with Pianocade ($250-$325). This powerful synthesizer is designed to sound, look, and feel like a vintage arcade game, offering a 128-note range, 5-pin and USB MIDI connectors, and either one or two octaves worth of buttons. Feel like customizing your own? You can buy the electronics by themselves for $100.

  • Electree

    Some new product ideas are cool, and some are downright crazy — but it's the ones that are a little of both that often turn out the best. Take the Electree ($200 and up) for example. This sculpture/gadget is shaped after a bonsai tree, but instead of leaves it sports solar panels on its branches. And what does it do with all the energy it collects? It charges an internal battery that you can then use to charge your phone or tablet. Wirelessly, even, if you'd like. It surely beats the "garden" of wires you deal with now.

  • Projecteo

    How to share your Instagram photos with friends without passing around your phone or tablet seems to be one of the hottest questions of the year. Projecteo ($25) thinks it has the answer — or more specifically, is the answer. This pint-sized projector uses an internal LED to project your photos, which have been printed onto 35mm film and cut into wheels, onto any wall you can find. To change wheels, simply pull out the current batch, slide in the next, and relish the quiet groans that haven't been heard since the traditional family photo slideshow fell by the wayside.
