I rarely leave home without my Fitbit; it's become a part of my everyday the way shoes are. It's brought my activity level into my awareness, and keeps me motivated and moving. And there just isn't anything quite like that buzz you get when you've hit your daily goal.

Somewhere along the line I got tired of playing smartphone games and now opt for a more console-like mobile gaming experience with the PS Vita. But more importantly, I use it to pacify the kids on trips. It turns them into zombies and takes the sting out of long plane rides.
Coming from an illustration background, I'm always eager try out the latest styluses. Pencil from FiftyThree is the only stylus that has ever become a part of my daily tool kit. It has a weighty (solid wood) carpenter style that feels both comfortable in your hand and durable in your pocket. The nib of the pencil captures the feel of various brushes because of its clever design. A hard tip housed in a soft rubber case creates a natural drag effect that mirrors the feeling of pencils, markers and brushes. I love my Pencil and take it with me everywhere I go.

Logitech's range of remotes can make using a complicated home theatre system simple enough for a 5-year-old. Literally. My 5-year-old can use it to "turn on Neahfalix" and find "Pound Puppies," then turn it off when it's time for dinner. And when she tries to sneak another episode, I can use the app to turn off the TV from across the house.
I barely get time to play games anymore. And I'm a serious Nintendo nerd. My son plays the Wii U, but the 3DS is for me. I get my Mario fix on the train, and my extra dose of retro Sega arcade classics at night (Out-Run, I'm talking to you).
