Gadgets and Gizmos: Hi-Tech Toys
Finding gifts for children is one thing. Finding gifts for adults is another. If you're looking to satisfy the kid in all of us, hi-tech toys are the way to go. Here's the Nightteam's Tom Haynes with his Christmas list.
WSVN -- Say good-bye to the tinker toys of yester-year.
The gift to give this Christmas is practical, portable and very posh.
If you want to jingle bell rock this holiday, music on the go is always a hot commodity.
While mp3 players promise to stuff many stockings, check out Virgin's new player.
It holds twice as many songs as the mini I-pod and it's cheaper.
Satellite radio is also breaking barriers this year. Until now, you could only jam in your car or at home.
But with XM radio's brand new portable receiver, you can take the tunes anywhere you want.
It works just like a Walkman, but with over 120 stations to choose from.
Now, when you finally have a chance to actually relax at home and pop in a movie,
here's a simple step that could spare you a lot of stress.
These plastic guards called "D-skin" will help protect your DVDs and CDs from scratching forever. Just pop one on and you never have to take it off again.
What about finding a gift for the sports lover in your life? Well, how about these golf putter?
Not only will you never lose a ball again, you'll never have to pick up a ball again.
Once you hit it, all you have to do is wind it back, and putt again.
And here's something that will bring out the adventure in all of us.
Solo water sports has changed the world of water skiing with a personal ski machine.
Here, you're the driver and the spotter. But, it will water down your wallet. Total cost - just over $10,000 dollars.
And finally, what about the art lover in your life?
Forget spending thousands of dollars to visit the Mona Lisa. Instead, check out the "Mona Lynn." Yes, look closely - it's actually my co-anchor Lynn Martinez.
The painting comes compliments of www.mydavinci.com and get a load of this - the starting price is only $35 dollars.
Also available, a high tech toothbrush sanitizer by Violight. It used ultra violet light to zap 99.9 percent of bacteria.
