Did you watch Animal Planet’s Puppy Bowl VII in 3-D? If you had an extra $5,000 to spend, you may have!
DigiGal here, to tell you about the newest, hottest gadgets and electronics off the red carpet and on the market. You can indeed watch 3-D television from home. Those un-glam glasses you wear in theaters are still required, but not for long. Toshiba already has a glasses-free 3-D set, but only offers a small 20-inch display.
Up in the air, travel like the jet set does: Go first class, keep on your over-sized shades, and slip on noise-cancelling headphones like these by Bose. They drown out the plane’s engines, the crying baby in row 22 and even pesky fans seated next to you. You’ll never hear a thing, other than your iTunes mix.
Want music following you wherever you go? You could wear your headphones 24/7 (um, not recommended!), or you could get the multi-room ZonePlayer system by Santa Barbara company Sonos. Plug in your iPod and play the music in any room of your house, without wires!
The rich and famous not only have their pictures taken, they also take photos themselves. Of course you want the best camera money can buy! If you missed the limited-edition Leica camera in Neiman-Marcus’s 2010 Holiday Catalog for $17,500, the Leica M9 Limited Edition Silver Chrome Set is available for the comparatively low price of $12,950. This is a digital camera, but every setting can be manually adjusted. Not only is it considered the best, most advanced camera in the word, but it is a gorgeous camera to look at! Better hurry, though. Only 50 cameras will be made!
Of course you want a mobile phone that stands out from the crowd of iPhones. Get your hands on the newly-revealed HTC Thunderbolt. It will run on 4G, the new, faster wireless system (think broadband for your phone). If you’re a gamer, you may want to check out Sony Ericsson’s Xperia Play being announced this weekend. A phone and a Playstation that fits in your pocket! Want more bling for your ring? How about a 24 carat gold iPhone? Better yet, get one covered in diamonds! For a tablet computer, there’s more than the iPad. The Motorola Xoom premiered during the Super Bowl last weekend. It’s powered by Google’s Android system, the same as Droid cell phones. You may already have an iPad, but what are you carrying it in? A-Listers protect theirs with a couture iPad case, like these by Gucci, Prada and Chanel.
These days, technology is moving and improving so fast, that it’s only a matter of time before today’s cutting-edge gadget is tomorrow’s paperweight. Don’t worry, DigiGal will be here to keep you informed!
