Sticking with the theme of gaming, VR is the hot topic of 2016. In fact, CES and GDC were both dominated by VR talk, with PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift, and Vive leading the way. But our VR of choice is the PlayStation VR, at least for now, simply because of its price point. What you’re getting for the price outshines the other two leading VR headsets, and although it’s slightly less advanced than Oculus or Vive, it’s still an incredibly great experience. Plus, there’s 100 Foot Robot Golf coming after it launches. Sure, you have to buy the PlayStation Camera (if you don’t have one already), but it’s a gaming VR headset made for gamers. If you’re looking to go VR but don’t want to break the bank, the PS VR is a solid choice. You can also check out our list of the best PS4 games of 2016 so far.

“I was on vacation in France in 2002 (I was 7 or 8 back then) and I visited a local toy store multiple times because they had really cool stuff. But then, one day I saw a cylinder-shaped oil and water emulsion toy with spiral stairs inside that you can put upside down all the time and then you see little drops of blue oil rolling down in a spiral. It was so satisfying to watch, even better than a lava lamp! They had them in blue or pink. I wanted the blue one, but my mom didn’t want to buy it for me. For years I was searching for it as a child but I never found it in another store, not even on my next visit to France. I was so in love with that thing…but one year ago at the end of 2016, I visited a store in my country that I’ve known for years, and there I found them! I so happy to finally see them after years of searching that I almost cried, they even had one in purple! —s4ef321550

Introducing The Robotic Lawn Mower… At first glance the WORX Landroid Robotic Lawn Mower might call to mind a viral video featuring a cat in a shark costume riding a robotic vacuum*, but this mower is truly an innovative solution to the common question: Who’s going…
I don’t game, but a multiscreen portable — I refuse to call something that weighs 12 pounds (5.4 kg) a laptop — has tons of uses for people whose work or play requires multiple screens. And it’s like a giant curved screen! It’s just a concept now, but I vote yea!
We weren’t sure if the virtual reality trend was going to catch on, but thanks to players like Sony getting in on it, it looks like it might be here to stay. That being said, if you have the chance to try it, PlayStation VR is an experience unlike any other. It is truly immersive gaming and, as more developers get onboard, it promises to change the space forever.
This is is a simple character-building game. It relies on reaction time, calmness, and the ability of a player to tune his or her own reflexes to the point where they are lightning sharp. The idea is for each player to grab a handle, press the button, and wait for the suspenseful music to play. Once the music finishes, a light will shine in the middle, at which point all players have to pull the triggers on their handles as fast as possible. The last player gets a very small and very mild electrical jolt. Quite exciting, to say the least.
