1. Bluetooth Gloves
Cold weather interrupting your smartphone action? Cop these babies. They allow you to talk right into your hands, and the fingertips are touch screen friendly, allowing for control without removing your gloves. Now I know what you all are thinking: that was my idea!
2. Bubl 360º Spherical Camera
This interesting contraption just successfully reached its Kickstarter goal, so you can now buy it. But what is it? If you enjoy the range and style that the Google Street View shots capture, then the Bubl is something you might want to invest in. With the ability to capture video and photos in HD, it would be great to see what this baby can do in the long run.
3. N1 Gaming Sound Bar
This surround sound speaker system from Polk Audio is for serious gamers only. The 39-inch Bluetooth-equipped Sound Bar with built-in Gaming EQs basically replaces your headphone and lets you fill your playing area with the sweet sounds from your Xbox.

4. R2 D2 car charger
Let Artoo be your copilot and charge your smartphone. What could be better?
5. USB Thermo-electric Cooler & Warmer
The cold is just getting started. So check out this beverage warmer (and cooler). It’s powered simply by USB, so it’s ideal for desktop usage.
6. Logitech PowerShell Controller for iPhone 5/5S
One of the features promised with iOS 7 was the ability to use Bluetooth controllers natively. Well, the first company to capitalize on this feature is Logitech with this slick PowerShell controller. It also features a backup battery functionality so you can use the controller battery while you game.
