CTA's top Father's Day tech gear

Techstination feature for Thursday, June 15, 2017

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.    Still looking for that perfect techie type Father’s Day gift?   The Consumer Technology Association’s Jim Barry says among the hot categories are digital assistants for the home like Amazon’s Alexa and Google Home.   Apple’s entry in the category doesn’t arrive until the end of the year.   The Nintendo Switch is the hot new video game console…but both Sony and Microsoft have updated their machines too.  Virtual Reality is another hot fairly new category…as are drones…

“We know that the thing that’s really spurred the growth in the last two years of drones is the marriage of the action camcorder, the GoPros, with these flying drones.  I think we’re going to see a lot more of that.”

In fact GoPro’s Karma with the Hero 5 camera is one of the great choices out there, with the camera being usable on or off the drone.    You can find us at   I’m Fred Fishkin.
