Gifting someone who has everything – that is the problem I face every year as my best friend is a techie who buys what he wants, whenever he wants it. So gifting him is an exercise that requires planning and hours of meticulous online searching.

Sony is in a league of its own when it comes to crafting innovative technologies into commercial products. The creative minds at Sony never shy away from taking a detour, inventing extraordinary products, and making sure those products are of top-notch quality, virtually lasting a lifetime with judicious use. So what Sony has to offer for early adopters and people who are drawn to niche gadgets that’ll make them brag at New Year’s party? Here are the best products you can buy from the Japanese multinational that never ceases to amaze with innovation.
The Reon Pocket
A portable, wearable, air conditioner is no more a thing of futuristic TV shows. The Reon Pocket is a smartphone-controlled personal gadget that was designed to be compact and cool. It works using thermoelectric cooling and can cool the user’s body temperature by 13 degrees celsius (23 degrees Fahrenheit) and raise your temperature by about 8 degrees Celsius (about 14 degrees Fahrenheit). Reon sits on the base of your neck in a special undershirt designed for it. It uses the Peltier effect which means a temperature difference is created by applying a voltage between two electrodes connected to a sample of semiconductor material. The heat is absorbed or emitted when you pass an electrical current across a junction to either lower your temperature or increase it without bulk or noise.
FES Watch U
This minimalistic smartwatch by Sony is for the fashion-forward who want a fresh new look every single day of their life. You can choose the preset designs by well-known artists or create one of your own to add a personal touch. Then you are ready for the day’s challenge with your own personalized style riding on your wrist to match your clothing and accessories.
