Seaboard

Blurring the lines between a piano and a guitar, the Seaboard ($2,000) is a new musical instrument that offers the form factor of the former and many of the traits of the latter. Thanks to a soft, three-dimensional surface that's laid out as a standard row of keys, the Seaboard gives you full control of pitch, volume, and timbre simply by touching the keys. SoundDial software lets you control the instrument's sound, giving you a unique opportunity — since only 88 are being produced at first, you won't have to worry about the band down the street playing the same thing.

  • Google Glass

    Ever lost your way while walking in a straight line down a sidewalk? Wanted to take that photo of your daughter's first steps, but just too tired to pull out your phone? Ever feel lonely and just wish you had someone, something, to talk to? Those are just some of the things you can fix with Google Glass ($1,500). Controlled by nothing but your voice, this head-mounted computer has a camera and a screen, and is the closest you can come to a POV camera video game HUD in real life. What you do with it is totally up to you.

  • 3Doodler

    3D printing is an undeniably exciting technology — but unfortunately, you need a pretty good understanding of the related software to maximize its potential. Not so with the 3Doodler ($75 and up). This 3D printing pen uses the same ABS plastic as many printers, but allows you to draw anything you like, in the air or on a surface. As you doodle, the pen extrudes heated plastic, which quickly cools and solidifies into an actual thing that you can hold and touch. You're really only limited by your imagination — and your drawing skills.
