Square Off Grand Kingdom Set
There are a bazillion ways to play chess, the game of kings, from ultra-cheap to inexpensive apps. But if you want the highest-tech method—one that involves a magnet-powered rosewood finish board moving full-sized pieces, while you monitor gameplay with an app on your smartphone.
Use the app to play with people in other locations while you watch it play out locally, or play against the computer at up to 20 levels of difficulty. The Grand Kingdom board is extra wide beyond the usual checkerboard, so it had room to move even your defeated pieces to the side. Once the game is over, it'll move all the pieces back to their original positions for you. It has a battery that lasts 30 games, so you can take it with you, but it's not exactly made for playing in the backseat of the car. https://squareoffnow.com/product/gks
Insta360 Pro 2
Not everyone needs to shoot 360-degree virtual reality video like you see in Google Street View. But if you do, you need the right professional-level camera, and that camera is probably the melon-sized Insta360 Pro 2. It shoots full stereoscopic 3D images with HDR using six F2.4 fisheye lenses, and has sensors galore. The result is two simultaneous 8K videos with the best quality possible. https://www.insta360.com/product/insta360-pro2/

The Barisieur Coffee & Tea Alarm Clock
If you’re serious about your tea or coffee then the thought of having an alarm clock concoct your morning brew is probably enough to give you a serious case of the night terrors. Not so with The Barisieur, which makes your morning cup from either freshly ground beans or loose leaf tea. You know, so you can wake up to the sound of bubbling water, something hot that tastes great and will save you having to hastily grab a cup on the way out the door to work. https://us.joyresolve.com/
