Five fabulous tech toys for the summer -- and the one clear winnerFrom playing with your dog to chilling by the pool to taking awesome action videos, CNET's Brian Tong picks his fab five gadgets for the summer. And don't just take his word for it.
What's up? It is summer time. I've got all these crazy summer gadgets in front of me, and really, these are my five fab five of all these cool tech toys, and really my favorite of the bunch. So we wanted to go down the line and show you what each of these are. And then we're gonna ask people what they think. I like that. That's got more cool factor. Definitely it's something new, [MUSIC]. Numero Uno on the fab five, this is the iFetch, it's an automatic ball shooter for your dog to go play fetch. So it comes with these three little tennis balls. It shoots about 10 to 20 to 30 feet. This guy only costs $115. All right, next up we have, everyone knows about the Apple Watch. I don't know. I don't think so. No, not at all. [LAUGH] Apple Smart Watch It's just weird, and, like, no offense to Apple. And then third, this is for all you photo lovers. This is Polaroid's Zip Mobile Printer. It starts at around $129, and it allows you from your phone, Android or iPhone, to print 2 by 3 photos Yeah, sweeter, cuddlier. It takes about thirty seconds for them to come out, but it's really a way to get photos anywhere you want. They're adhesive on the back; you can stick them on different surfaces. I really like taking pictures, so the fact that you can just print them on the go and you can do whatever you want with them is pretty cool. This is called the Fly X-3 Pro. This is a steady cam for your iPhone, so if you're shooting video. Can I hold? Yeah, hold that. Your face stays in the, pretty much in the box. Oh, I like that. That's interesting. So you can see here, I can move it around. You could put a goPro on this. You could put an Android phone on this. But this really makes the videos that you take at home look really clean and professional. And then finally, number five of the fab five, we have The Monster SuperStar Backfloat. This is a bluetooth speaker, completely wireless. What makes this special is it can be completely submerged in water. Just let it go and it's made to be waterproof so it shoots out. Shoots the water out too, nice. That's pretty cool. These are the fab five, we're gonna talk to people here on the streets, what is their favorite pick for the summer. It has to be the water speaker. I would take the stick just because I'm an action sports junkie. I'd go with the watch, I'd go with the watch. I think I would go for the water speaker as well. I will definitely use it in the shower. The Steadicam is neat. I've never seen anything like this before. I'd take the Polaroid. You're feeling the beat? You're feeling the beat? Yeah, I like that. I would say the likeliest number one in this Just terms of grabbing your attention. The way it works you just hold it in one arm. So its' pretty cool. I like it. I like the speaker. I think it's just something I'll probably use the most. So based on our completely unscientific pole, here's the result. At zero, the iFetch. At one vote, the Apple watch. With one vote the Polaroid Mobile Zip Printer, four votes going to the FLY-X3 Pro Steadicam, and with six votes the winner the Monster SuperStar BackFloat. Now, look at all these. Let me know which one is your pick, and I know the one that I'm taking home with me this summer, the SuperStar. Whoa.
