There’s a lot of cool stuff on Amazon—but these 25 stuff for your home might just be some of the coolest. Order them now, and you’ll become the envy of all of your friends overnight.
1. Transparent Speaker
A beautiful Transparent Speaker with high quality audio components and materials. Sustainable design created for today’s music lover.
Customer Review : Wow, this thing took a bit longer to set up than it should have, and the main software is crappy. (doesn’t work well in several games) I stumbled on the “unofficial” fork (on reddit) and it’s freaking awesome. This purchase was something of a lark for me, but I couldn’t be happier with the results. Get it from Amazon for $849.
2. Ambient Backlight Display System
Light pack content driven lighting system for your displays (TV or monitor), working with your PC or mac to watch movies, play games or work on windows, Linux and mac OS X systems. Light pack helps to reduce the difference in lighting between dark and bright scenes. Every movie switches from dark to bright scenes a large number of times. The muscles of an eye are in constant tension which can lead to vision problems.
Customer Review : Normally I don’t write reviews, but I must because I feel this product is poorly represented within the other reviews. First things first, LIGHTPACK NEEDS A COMPUTER. They state this many times. This was not meant to trick anyone, whoever thought it didn’t didn’t read correctly. Get it from Amazon for $93
3. Windshield Video Recorder
The AW1 is a device installed on a car windshield to record video, audio, and other data related to vehicle impacts or accidents. Especially, with its 1080p Full HD recording capability, built-in Wi-Fi and optional GPS, the AW1 offers clear and accurate images and recordings by catching plate numbers, colors of cars, and so on even on a cloudy day, day in and day out.
Customer Review : I have both this model and the AD1, while I love both, the convenience of the AW1 having WiFi to my Android phone to review videos and configure settings is really nice. Videos are great and better than the AD1 of course. I’ve not tested night time quality, but pointing it under my desk when I first received the unit, seems better than the AD1. Get it from Amazon for $154
4. A Bluetooth keyboard
I’ve used Anker’s Bluetooth keyboards for over a year, and I can’t recommend them highly enough. They are light, compact, easy to set up, and have pretty solid battery life.
Customer Review : If you have a smaller tablet, forget trying to find a keyboard integrated into a case…you will either end up with a keyboard too small for your hands, or a case that fits your keyboard but is excessively large for your tablet. Just pick up this bluetooth keyboard and slip it into your bag. Combined with a folio stand-style case for your tablet, you have the perfect set up for airline travel, where you can adjust the screen and keyboard separately for comfort, as well as for the conference room. This inexpensive, lightweight unit works very well with my Nexus 7. Bluetooth Keyboard, $17.99, available at Amazon
5. A suction car phone mount
If you’re dead set on keeping your car’s air vents free of tech, consider buying a suction-based car mount. They’re light and fully adjustable, so you or other family members driving your car can get its positioning just right.
Customer Review : This car mount is pretty useful.. It is as described and is of good quality material. Been using it for four days now and it works just fine, putting and removing an iPhone and LG G4.. and it fits both despite the difference in size. Very easy to manipulate while driving.. once you set it to your preference angle, it is stable and only moves if you do it. Vantrue Car Mount, $12.99, available at Amazon
6. Over-ear headphones
That people continue to rock the Koss PortaPro, despite it looking entirely like something that was sold alongside the Super Nintendo and Sony Walkman, is a testament to its quality.
Customer Review : I’m giving these headphones a five with their low price definitely being a factor in that decision. I’m sure everyone understands that scoring a thing is a relative sort of prospect. These are by no means the best kind of headphones you can buy. Headphones, $39.95, available at Amazon
7. A Google Cardboard viewer
Want to dip your toe into the world of VR without shelling out hundreds of dollars? This Google Cardboard-compatible view from Minkanak should be perfect.
Customer Review : Wow! How can a cardboard be so amazing! We’re new to this stuff. I just saw a video about it on facebook so I went ahead and looked it up on amazon i always thought VR’s are soo expensive just look at that microsoft VR. it’s like 3grand omg. I’m so glad I found this!!! I feel like i can go anywhere! international space station, in paris, in a concert next to elton john!! wow!! i thought my daughter would like it. Google Cardboard, $9.95, available at Amazon
8. Smartphone Mount/Stand
This smartphone mount will be your new favorite product. It positions your smartphone perfectly at sight level so you can safely drive and use maps, music or take a hands-free call. Basically, it clips onto your air vent and you can pivot it to your desired angle.
Customer Review : The Airframe easily holds my workphone, an IPhone 5S in an Otterbox case. It also easily holds my personal phone, an IPhone 6S Plus in an aftermarket case. The Airframe pushes onto my car air vent after I attach the phone by sliding the arm outwards and placing the phone inside, then releasing the arm to close onto the phone. Get it from Amazon for $29.95
9. Fire TV Stick
Amazon claims that the Fire TV Stick is the most powerful streaming media stick, with 8GB of internal storage. It can stream movies and TV shows right to your TV, and its remote features voice controls, so you can search by speaking right into it!
Customer Review : I used the Wink app and READ EVERY WORD of the instructions and followed them exactly, and wha la! HERES WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO: After you put one of the batteries back into the head of the pig, flash the pig nose to connect. Get it from Amazon for $40
10. Motorola X Sol Republic Deck Bluetooth NFC Wireless Speaker
This portable speaker connects to your phone via Bluetooth and lets up to five people connect to it so different people can play DJ.
Customer Review : This product’s shipping was right on time, and the package was up to par; no scratches or any form of damage on my items. Everything was indeed brand new, and it came in the retail packaging as well. When you take out all the contents, the actual Deck is displayed behind the plastic, and the rest of the materials are behind it. Get it from Amazon for $50
This innovative high resolution thermal imaging device offers two image processing modes: superb high-resolution day/night imaging and basic thermography. Small enough to fit in your pocket and combined with a set of interchangeable lenses, Therm-App provides top quality thermal capabilities and the advantages of an open-source platform.
Customer Review : First off, let me say this. If you are on the fence about one of these, just go ahead and order it now! This thing is incredible for the $$! The quality of this is amazing. Get it from Amazon for $1030
12. At Home 3D Printer
3D Systems, Inc. Cube Printer 2nd Generation SILVER 381000 1372.
Customer Review : I bought this 2nd Generation Cube to replace my two year old device that had gone bad from being in storage. This one worked right out of the box, no issues and was printing in a matter of minutes. Get it from Amazon for $358
13. 3D Video Glasses
Get ready for the next generation of augmented reality platforms — the BT-200 from Epson, the world leader in projection technology. These binocular, transparent smart glasses open up a whole new world in entertainment, manufacturing, medical science and more. Unlike competitive models, each lens has its own display, right in your field of vision, projected into your surroundings. And, the BT-200 boasts 2x the virtual screen size, at a remarkably affordable price.
Customer Review : It is small with a nice metal body construction and a tripod mount. It clamps on to an android cell phone and you use an app to interact with it. Get it from Amazon for $1041
14. Bubble Waffle Maker
Waffles are fun and amazing. But have you ever tried Bubble Waffles?! They are even better, and now you can make them at home! It works like a charm every time, and they make a great breakfast, snack or even delectable dessert.
Customer Review : Like most small electric appliances, it can’t be submerged in water. Before the first use, to ensure anything left on the surface after manufacturing is removed, wipe the interior with a damp, slightly soapy paper towel and follow it immediately with another damp towel to wipe up any and all soap residue. Normally, this is an instruction found in the user’s guide, but it was not mentioned. Get it from Amazon for $39.95
15. Swagtron T1
We have heard of electric scooters that burst into flames and make us shy from electric scooters. The Swagtron T1 (From 10+ Years Old) is UL2272 certified, and it does not expose your kid to such grave danger.
It runs at 8 MPH, and you will be in a position to keep track of your battery life with the included indicator. It has a 220 lbs maximum weight capacity and comes in a range of six colors; white, black, blue, pink, red, and gold.
Customer Review : I really LOVE the SWAGTRON electric scooter! I’m a 49 year old woman, and so far, I’m the only person that owns an electric scooter where I live and where I work. Occasionally, my right knee gives me trouble, and being that I have to walk 15-minutes to and from the metro station every day from my home in the mornings and evenings, then another 3 blocks to work made me determined to purchase this scooter because it’s electric, folds down (easy access on the train/bus) and it’s sturdy for the road. Get it from Amazon for $299
16. Segway MiniPro
The Segway MiniPro (From 16+ Years Old) also comes in multiple colors. It uses pneumatic tires that are in a position to maneuver over different services. The maximum speed is 10MPH and runs for up to 14 miles, doing the math that will be about 80 minutes of run time. You can control it through an app and also it has an anti- theft system. The dual motor engine delivers incredible power. The knee bar makes for easier steering.
Customer Review : Got mine today and it is fabulous! It is very well-made and has plenty of power/torque. I am almost 63, have knee arthritis and can no longer run but I have no problem riding this thing. Get it from Amazon for $599
17. Soft Serve Maker
Making soft serve ice cream has ever been easier – and who doesn’t love soft serve? This thing is so fun and easy to use, and you can tailor the recipes to your own tastes and dietary needs! The results are elegant and heavenly.
Customer Review : I am in love with this item. If you’ve ever made banana whip or “mock ice cream” in a blender, you will probably love this too. Get it from Amazon for $49.99
18. A guitar interface
I’ve used the a higher-end iRig product and have really come to love it for creating song demos quickly, and on the go.
Customer Review : It works great! Love that i can sit late at night and play electric without disturbing anyone in the house. I would have given it 5 stars if there wasn’t the up sell of the app you need to play with all the bells and whistles. Bad form making me spend another $20 to really use it. iRig 2, $36.01, available at Amazon
19. A phone case
Like the MacBook case I recommended, this iPhone case is no-frills and comes with the same advantages and caveats.
Customer Review : The case is marketed as clear and it is still pretty clear. It has a rigid plastic back and a softer side band. The side band also overlaps the back so it keeps the camera lens and back of the case off the table. Phone Case, $7.99, available at Amazon
20. An armband phone case
If you’d like to run outside while listening to music, then this armband case is a good bet.
Customer Review : Arm band works great however if you have a case on your phone it may not fit exactly right. I can not get the arm band cover to completely hold my phone. It is secure and works great but the top of the armband is supposed to cover the phone and with a lifeproof cover on an IPhone 6S Plus it will not close without possibly ripping it I would recommend the product and works will with that in mind. Armband phone case, $5.99, available at Amazon
21. A laptop bag
Like it’s mouse, Amazon’s line of laptop bags won’t win any design awards, but its choice of function over form makes them a good budget option.
Customer Review : Amazon has done it again. I’ve purchased quite a few of the “AmazonBasics” line and have never been disappointed. The streak continues. I picked up this bag for my new Dell XPS 13 laptop. Laptop Bag, $14.99, available at Amazon
22. A battery phone case
If you want extra battery life but don’t feel like carrying a USB battery around, Anker has you covered.
Customer Review : This case comes with a VERY short micro USB cable, so I decided to also buy a 2-pack of Anker micro USB cables. Those cables maybe lasted a week, before they would stop sticking in the charging port. Then I figured it was an issue with the cables, so Anker contacted me and sent me new, better quality cables. Those lasted another week before the case stopped holding them in place. Battery Case, $49.99, available at Amazon
23. An iPhone dock
Once you get used to docking your phone, there’s no going back.
Customer Review : I purchased this as part of a Mothers Day present for my wife who lives on her iPhone 6S. This is a great product that looks neat and works as you would expect. The color matches the iPhone 6s perfectly and even when the phone is in a hard case it fits and charges with no problems. Apple iPhone Dock, $49, available at Amazon
24. A luggage tracker
If you’ve ever lost a bag while traveling, you know how tedious and nerve-racking it is trying to get it back. Plus there’s the thought that it might never be found and your stuff will just end up in between-airport limbo.
Customer Review : Used this on a multi-connection trip this week. Washington-Dulles to Denver, Denver to Las Vegas – and then back through the same airports. Six day trip, four flights, battery stayed good. SMS notification worked perfectly every time. Luggage Tracker, $39.99, available at Amazon
25. Bluetooth Headphones
These bluetooth headphones are lightweight, cool, and classy. They are engineered to give you a balanced, rich music experience while blocking out all the other random noises around you. Plus, all the controls and the mic are built into the headset.
Customer Review : I bought the headphones primarily for my work, which involves speaking with people from around the world. The sound quality of incoming and outgoing calls is superb; without the Photive, I found it difficult to readily understand foreign accents and voice ranges from 80 to 255 Hz. Since using the headphones. Get it from Amazon for $49.95
