Friends celebrating at Christmas

RC drones

It’s no secret that personal RC drones, often known as quadcopters, have been on the rise among the world’s tech geeks, and for good reason. These futuristic wonders usually come outfitted with high-quality cameras that allow the recording of immersive video content from vantage points previously unachievable. Plus, they’re just plain fun.

While they used to run in the hundreds of dollars at minimum, the increasing popularity of these devices has helped prices drop significantly. A bit of research will reveal a variety of options under $100.

Portable chargers

The portable USB charger – or power bank – is another device that’s been making serious waves in the tech scene. Ideal for the tech geek who’s always on the go, power banks store power that can be used for charging smartphones and other USB devices while out and about. Some even come with additional features, such as flashlights, to make for an extra-convenient gift. With prices starting under $20, you should have no trouble finding a power bank that meets your budgetary demands.

VR headsets

You’d be hard-pressed to find a tech aficionado who’s not abuzz about the future of virtual reality (VR). The good news is that experiencing today’s VR offerings is simple and affordable thanks to VR headsets, like the trendsetting Google Cardboard. True to its name, the headset is crafted of cardboard, and it’s conveniently designed to fit most modern smartphones. Many other options are available, often featuring different looks and materials, and most budget-conscious selections remain well under $30.
