Last minute cool tech gift ideas

If you are finished with your holiday shopping, kudos to you.

If you haven't started as of yet, good luck to you.

But as a service to my readers, I have to give you some options when it comes to great cool tech gifts that you may be able to score at the last minute for those "hard to buy for" people on your list.

Take a gander at these to see what might make that perfect Christmas gift.

Swann: Bubble Bomber

These are hot this holiday shopping season. The RC helicopter that shoots bubbles with the push of a button. You not only get a helicopter with 100 foot distance from the wireless control unit, you also get the bubble solution that you load into the copter.

It's easy to set up and even easier to fly. Kids of all ages will get hours of fun and enjoyment from this, should I call it a "toy." It also will fly like a real chopper with 6-way multi-directional flying. It will go up and down, left and right and forward and backward on command.

The Bubble Bomber is powered by built-in rechargeable Lithium-ion battery and is recharged via remote control.
Pick one up at the last minute at your nearest Fry's for $59.99 and go online to see the specs at

Divoom's Bluetune-Bean Bluetooth Speaker

A powerful pocket sized portable and clip on Bluetooth speaker that attaches to your backpack, purse, or carry on for hands-free music listening. Clear sound with the Bluetooth V3.0 capabilities. You get over 8 hours on a full charge with the rechargeable battery and it comes in a choice of six cool colors.

All for under $30 at


It's a charger and a device that cleans your smartphone by using UV light to kill the bacteria that forms on your phone. You don't realize how many germs live your smartphone, but it's a lot. The PhoneSoap is one of the most unique devices I've come across all year. It's $49.95 at

Trego Bag

An iPad case and portable workstation all in one. It looks like a bag, but there is a pouch with a case that removes and turning into a portable desk. Use it as a handbag or carry on. It will also hold all the junk that you normally keep in your pockets. It's the perfect place to put your tablet, phone and writing instruments. It's great take on an airplane or the coffeeshop down the street. I had mine at the local Starbuck's and while sitting in one of the comfortable chairs, three people asked me what the Trego was and how they could get one.

It's convenience in bag form that you carry with you.

There is a deal running on right now. Get one for you and one for a friend.

Kyocera Mobile Phones

Check out the new Hydro XTRM and the Hydro Edge which is available through Sprint and Boost Mobile. Kyocera phones are great for those who work outdoors in the elements or kids who tend to be the hardest on their mobile devices.

We'll put Zappos last because they start with a "Z," but they shouldn't rank last when to comes to looking at a great website to do your last-minute Christmas shopping. Zappos has everything and they can get it to you on Christmas Eve. From Uggs to shoes, apparel and handbags, has it all and they can still get it to you.
