This little speaker is compatible with all smart phones, Macs, PCs, MP3 players and tablets. It comes with its own USB cable and travel pouch, has flashing lights that change colors and is available in black, green, blue and pink. And, as you noticed, it's a robot. You know that person in the office who has a lot of cool tech toys on their desk? Chances are they're going to get one of these. Who can blame them? Robots are cool.

BlueAnt Ribbon

$69.99

The new connector pin on the iPhone 5 could make millions of old speakers and docking stations useless. This device, made by BlueAnt Wireless, changes that. This stereo Bluetooth streamer instantly transforms any iPhone speaker dock or stereo into a Bluetooth sound system. It's designed to be worn on clothing for Bluetooth calling, and is compatible with any Hi-Fi stereo/docking station/AUX port with 3.5mm stereo input.

PS3 Headset

Pulse Wireless Stereo Headset — Elite Edition

$149.99

Sony's new cans feature what they call BassImpact technology. It translates bass sounds into pulses that you feel around the ear pads of the headset. This feature can be turned off or lessened, but you'll probably want to crank it up. When you combine this with the 7.1 virtual surround sound the impact is pretty amazing. This headset truly puts you in the game. My favorite feature is the onscreen indicator for the status of the headset. With all that's happening in intense gaming sessions, you don't have time to take off your headset to see what mode you've selected.
