We all have that one tech nerd friend who must have the latest gadget or whose house looks like a sci-fi warehouse. If you don’t, then you’re probably that friend.
Whether you like it or not, technology is everywhere and is here to stay. Now that Christmas is up on us, many people’s wish list has now started getting more populated with the latest tech.
If you’re looking to update your own, here are the most badass gadgets to get your mitts on from iCentre.
1. Gamevice, €110
The Gamevice will give you the ultimate gamegasm.
Available for iPhone and iPads (using the latest iOS software) Gamevice delivers a surreal gaming experience with over 950 games to choose from.
2. Urbanista Detroit Wireless Headphones, €69
Music maniacs who are always running around will adore the Detroit headphones with its elegant matte finish and grain leather earpads. It’s not just a pretty face though as it has a very simple button functionality where starting a playlist or answering a call can be done in a few seconds!
The clear crisp audio quality will make you feel like you’re with the artist inside the recording studio and the 12-hour playtime and standby time of 300 hours is perfect for those with a busy schedule.
3. GoPro HERO7 Black, €430
Everyone should have a GoPro HERO7 in their lives. My holiday or adventure pics and vids wouldn’t be the same without it and I make sure I always pack it with me because sometimes a mobile shot isn’t enough and a DSLR is too hefty!
It’s a great investment when you consider its compact size, how easy it is to operate and how it beats its competitors. It can capture 4K video at a barely believable 60 frames per second.
That says it all really!
4. Marshall Kilburn II, €299
The wireless Marshall Kilburn II looks like a mini version of the brand’s legendary rock n roll amps! Three sleek knobs control the volume, bass and treble outputs.
The sound quality of the Kilburn II is excellent. It guarantees an immersive, multidirectional audio experience at a very competitive price. The speaker has Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity, as well as the ability to wirelessly connect to multiple audio sources.
