Dope headphones



Whether it’s the thin walls separating you from your loud neighbors or it’s a pesky roommate who just won’t give you some space, it’s nice to shut the world out and just relax in some peace and quiet. To do so, you might want to pick up a set of noise canceling headphones like the QC35 from Bose. They’re a little pricey at about $450 CDN, but they’re worth every penny.


Media Hubs



The days of needing endless shelf space to house your media collection is becoming a thing of the past. Nowadays, you can’t go wrong with just getting a good media hub. The Amazon Fire Stick, Apple TV, an Android box or a Raspberry Pi system are all great options, but one that is often overlooked is Google’s Chromecast. There’s now also a model that outputs at 4K quality.


Portable Projector!



So what if you want to watch a movie or play some video games, but you’ve only got one TV in the room and that annoying roommate of yours is watching some lame dancing show with a bunch of washed up celebrities? Well, just grab yourself a wireless portable projector. The Philips PPX4010 Pocket Projector is a great option for such scenarios. It has a 100 lumen bulb, a USB port, an HDMI connection, and it can project video up to 120” across.


The Ultimate Keyboard



On our desks, the majority of us have laptops, tablets, and cellphones laying around. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a device that made using them all simultaneously less of a hassle? The Logitech K780 is a multi-device, low profile keyboard that allows you to hotswap connectivity with up to 3 devices via bluetooth. It’s even got a ledge along the top of the keyboard for you to rest your cellphone on. Neat!
