Gadgets for entertaining at the cottage – The Digital Life

jul9-winston-475x315

The summertime means spending more time with your friends and family, so head to the cottage ready to entertain with some of my favourite tech gadgets!

A party isn’t complete without margaritas! If you want to make sure every guest has a drink in their hand, be sure to have a margarita maker (like this Margaritaville Frozen Drink Maker) that will dispense the ice and blend the drinks just for you.  Simply booze it up to taste!

For the kids and dogs, the Sphero robotic ball is a multi-coloured, smartphone-controlled ball that is great for play around the yard.  The robotic gaming system is pet-proof and waterproof, and you can download up to 20 different games to play from “Etch-o-matic” to “Sphero Golf.”

If you’re looking for a new way of monitoring your home while travelling, the Withings Video Wi-Fi Monitor is an excellent solution— whether you want to check in on your pets, kids, or even your front door.  This handy wireless camera easily connects to your home internet system, and an app on your smartphone will allow you to access a live feed 24/7.

When on the beach, the hipKey Proximity and Movement Alarm will protect anything from your purse to your expensive digital camera.  This is an iPhone-activated alarm that can be attached to virtually anything, and you can set the parameters that will trigger a jarring sound.  Parameters include motion-activation and distance-activation (great for making sure your child doesn’t run too far away from you).

For the photographers out there, Lomography’s Horizon Kompakt camera is a fun way to take panoramic photos, and it pays homage to classic film photography in an age of digital photography.  Just remember to buy the film!

And lastly, if you’re an audiophile, the Klipsch Music Centre 3 is an audio system that promises to deliver on stellar sound quality.  It runs plugged in or on battery, so it’s ideal for around the house or for jamming to tunes on the beach.
