SanDisk Cruzer Orbit

Flash drives can be amazingly handy, but their small size can also make them a huge pain in the ass to find. Keep yours handy by making it a SanDisk Cruzer Orbit ($30-$50). This intelligent drive sports a circular design that makes it a snap to attach to key rings, carabiners, lanyards, and binders, and doubles as a protective mechanism for the USB connector. Available in 8, 16, and 32 GB capacities.

  • SmartBot

    With all the power our smartphones possesses, there's little reason they can't become the brains behind a full-blown robot. SmartBot (€135; roughly $175) is the first step towards that goal, connecting with your phone via the headphone jack and NFC, and letting apps control its built-in wheels, internal speaker and buzzer, and front lights. There's also an expansion port for adding new features and mounting holes for accessories, although how many of those are available will likely depend directly on if the little gadget catches on.

  • Qumarion Humanoid Input Device

    We don't expect there's a huge market for the Qumarion Humanoid Input Device ($TBA), but if you happen to be one of those people who could use it, it will likely be a game changer. Like the ubiquitous artist models, the Qumarion is a posable, human-like figure — but unlike the artist models, it communicates directly with a computer. As a result, you can use the Qumarion to move and pose on-screen 3D characters, making once challenging poses and movements as simple as adjusting an action figure. Great for animators, illustrators, or people who just enjoy collecting unusual gadgets.
