Shiny gadgets I like…

Day eight of the #JuneEdTechChallenge, and we’re being asked about the shiny gadgets we like.

An easy answer, really. All of them.

I used to read gadget magazines like T3 and Stuff, when I commuted by train and had time to read it. I keep up to date with developments in computing, gaming, phones, toys, robotics, gadgets, etc. from Internet and Twitter sources. But what I like most is getting my hands on something new and trying it out.

Admittedly this doesn’t happen much anymore, not until I’ve read every review and hunted down the best deal I can find. And that’s because I’m using my own cash, for my own gadget. When I was working in an environment where I could make a proposal, and where something came in at a certain budget or to fulfill a particular (possible) need, I could get funding and a team together to try it out – the first DJI Osmo Mobile was one such device. I’ve since got my own mobile gimbal … and it hasn’t left its box in nearly two years. What does that tell you?
