Each year our favorite tech magazine, Wired, graces our presence with a pop up store for the holidays. Featuring some of the coolest products of the year, the Wired Store is basically a live gift guide for the tech lover in your life. We attended the store opening last night to check out some of the goodies offered this year, and we definitely weren’t disappointed. Here’s a round up of some of our favorite items they’re offering, and the reasons you definitely need to stop by if you’re in NYC.
The Wired Store
459 W. 14th Street
New York, NY
Open December 11th – December 21st
3D Robotics IRIS+
There is no shortage of awesome electronics at the Wired Store, and this was the first one to catch our eye. Whether you’re spying on wildlife, surveying land, or chasing your brother-in-law around the yard, this will be the greatest toy you’ve played with in years. Plus, it records all your outings (if you choose) so you can sit back and relive the awesomeness over and over. Gifts should make you feel like a kid again, and this is the perfect gift to do that.
Vio Smartphone Breathalyzer
It’s a simple thing that can save your ass (and your wallet) in the long run. Just hook up the mouthpiece to your keys, or toss it in your pocket and use the bluetooth capability to read your BAC right on your smartphone. It even estimates how long it will take for your BAC to return to a safe driving number. With such a useful device, those of you in cities that insist you drive everywhere no longer have any excuse for getting a DUI, and that is something to get excited about.
Levitating Bluetooth Speaker
For the futuristic, music loving, techy. This is the first ever levitating, (yes, I said levitating) speaker. There are countless speakers out there that sound great, a lot of them even look the part, but this is the only one that will bring your home audio into the next generation.
Express Clothing Care System
We here at Life, Tailored love great technology, but as you know, we also love clothing. This brings our great loves together. The SWASH is essentially your at-home-dry-cleaner. Throw in your outfit, and 10 minutes later your clothes are pristine, which is something we can definitely get behind.
Yes, this is a handheld, portable espresso machine. And yes, we agree, that is amazing. Whether you’re enjoying nature and are caught without a Starbucks in sight, or you just really prefer to make your own drink on the train, this is the perfect solution.
Black Diamond Equipment
Hot Forge Hoody
Technology doesn’t always mean electronics. The new Hot Forge Hoody from Black Diamond Equipment is the perfect example of awesome technology being used in a practical way. They have managed to keep their new jacket trimmer and lighter than others, while still keeping you warmer than the competition, even when you’re wet.
360 Eye Robot
Taking automatic vacuums to a whole new level, the Dyson 360 Eye Robot has the power of a Dyson, complete with cameras and a I’ll do it myself attitude. The camera captures up to 30 frames per second so it knows exactly where it needs to clean without dinging up your trim along the walls. Plus, it looks high-tech and your dog will love chasing it around the house (we assume). Oh yeah, and you control the entire thing with your smartphone, naturally.
That added touch of elegance to update your kitchen, the Mami Kettle has a mirror polished finish with a magnetic stainless-steel bottom. You can brew your tea in style, and have a new work of art on the stove at the same time.
X1 Water Bike
The perfect addition to your cabin or lake home, the X1 water bike is a must-have for anyone who wants to blend their love of open water and cycling for a one of a kind workout. Easy to use and assemble, you will gets years of fun and excitement while pretending you’re an aquatic Lance Armstrong.
Real-time Fitness Watch
Wearable fitness devices are one of the new hotlist items over the past year or so, and this is one of our favorites. Not only does it track your workouts, but it gives you real-time feedback and coaching to help you improve your fitness and get the most out of each workout.
Chill Personal Beverage Dispenser
The perfect addition to complete any home bar, the Chill Personal Beverage Dispenser can hold up to 72 cans of your favorite drink. The backlit LED image is user customizable, and the cold drinks are dispersed at the touch of a button. You will be everyone’s favorite host when they can grab a cold brew right from the vending machine, just make sure you invite us to the party.

Of course, if you aren’t lucky enough to drop by in person, you can checkout all the amazing products from the comfort of home on the Wired Store Website. The tech lover in your life will thank you.
