Cool Tech Turntable
You may be surprised to find out vinyl sales have actually hit a record high in just the first half of 2018.
But all the pressed vinyl in the world is useless if you don’t have a turntable.
Audio Technica is a well-established sound tech company with simple turntables for under $100. You’ll have to provide your own speakers, but as a collector of cool gadgets you probably already have several sets of those. Any speakers can be attached through a regular aux chord on the side.
It’s new tech meets old school in the best way.
A Flying Drone
I know what you’re thinking.
“A drone?! Drones are for rich people!”
You might be right. Anyone with $100 extra dollars to spend on the Parrot Mambo flying drone is wealthier than most of the population of the world. But only $100 for the gift of remote control flight, complete with motion sensors and a controller app right on your smartphone?
Sounds like a bargain to me.
Augmented Reality Headset
You don’t need a mansion, wide screen TV, and personal butler to enjoy augmented and virtual reality games, either.
The Google Daydream View 2 is a VR/AR headset that connects right to your phone or other devices. This affordable miracle is only compatible with phones like Pixel 2, Galaxy S8 and Note series, as well as some LG and Huawei smartphones. (Sorry iPhone users). It can even be used to overlay images on photography– not just steal hours of your life with amazing immersive video games.
Custom XBox Controller
Speaking of video games, it’s easier than ever to get the full-time XBox player in your life their own custom controller.
Microsoft offers a simple, intuitive design process to help you make whatever color controller you want for about $80. You can choose from designs already made by someone else, or customize every button how you see fit.
And when it’s time to take a break from Overwatch…
A New Tablet

Yup. There are amazing tablets for less than $100 that don’t compromise on quality. Any kind of data plan to keep you online with no wifi will obviously cost extra. But there are plenty of options to help you find a tablet on a budget that meets your needs and satisfies that new tech craving.
