Apple’s iPad Air 2 is one of the most prominent tablets to be launched this year. It is a truly successful tablet that improves on the previous one, including for example the Touch ID fingerprint reader .

But it is not only its images that stand out, but also its videos, since it can record video at 1080p.

LG’s smartwatch has managed to distinguish itself from other smart watches that have seen the light of day this year. The fact that it was one of the most attractive is mainly due to its comfort , which allows to receive all kinds of notifications , which makes it possible to chat, read e-mails or ask about the weather. Let’s not forget that just by saying ” OK, Google “, we can use the Android voice assistant.
The Panono camera has also earned a place in this list, although it is not yet for sale (it will be in 2015). Nothing escapes this ball. It allows you to take pictures of everything that happens in 360 degrees using 36 cameras. It is really robust and not easy to break.

The speaker is capable of spinning on itself as the music plays. It does this on its base. Its autonomy is 12 hours and you only have to connect it to a device via bluetooth to start playing music.

Another really curious device is the one launched by HTC. It is a camera for iOS Android devices. It is capable of recording everything as the user would see it , from his point of view.
It has a 16-megapixel sensor and can record at 1080p Full HD. And don’t worry if you have to take it out on the water, as it’s capable of withstanding it.
The Motorola gadget is at the bottom of our list. It is a device that syncs with our phone and we can wear it on our ear . You can give it commands and you can ask it questions. Very interesting.
