Ok folks, so if you need to start your week buying some cool gifts for someone in your life, we’ve found some super fun technology that anyone with an interest in gadgets would be itching to get their hands on. 
Rollei Action Camera
First up, is a new Action Camera from German camera manufacturer Rollei. These guys have been making cameras since the 1920s, and not only do they have prestige in this area, they are in no way dated, with this little number:

Camera details: S50 WIFI Actioncam: 14 Megapixel WiFi Action-Camcorder with Full HD Video Resolution 1080p (1920x1080p/30 fps)
The camera allows live video streaming and immediate upload to social networks: Adventure lovers can use the Rollei Actioncam 5S WiFi via their smartphone with an app. They can view and share videos in real-time – enabled by integrated WiFi (up to 20 m range) and corresponding app (for iOS and Android). Full HD Resolution (1080p) guarantees breath-taking results in optimal quality. You can increase the frame rate up to 60 fps (1080i) to capture crystal clear slow-motion images. Photos can be taken while video recording. The video time lapse function gives you a whole new outlook for video recordings and boasts intervals!
There’s so much packed in to these little numbers you’ll wonder why you ever bothered to consider anything else! So get snap happy!
Next up, for all you music lovers, who hate other noise, Velodyne has just introduced its latest vQuiet line of noise-cancelling headphones. 
vQuiet Headphones
vQuiet_1B_HiRes
vQuiet headphones are designed to reduce jet engine and other ambient noise by 90 percent while delivering the highest-quality musical or other audio experience. The headphones are available in matte black with a diamond-blue Velodyne insignia on each ear cup that serves as a bypass/mute button, and are foldable for easy storage. A control module on the vQuiet’s detachable audio cable enables users to seamlessly transition from listening to music or watching video to talking on the phone when connected to devices that have these features.
Oh, and did we mention how cool they look too??!!!
And finally, its not just about the gifts you give, but also the way you give it, so step ahead of the game and give the coolest cards in existence via Paper Tango.
Paper Tango 
Founded by designer Judy Robinson, Paper Tango is a London based company specialising in origami-inspired gifts and 3- dimensional greeting cards.  All of Paper Tango’s cards are intricately laser-cut and hand folded to produce a 3D pop up; creating a unique gift. Paper Tango’s latest range of greeting cards ‘Spots London’, is a range of pop up cards showcasing various London architectural landmarks including Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, The London Eye and more. Screen Shot 2013-09-15 at 20.38.55
The cards, made from the premium British and Italian paper, are laser cut and then hand-folded, glued and trimmed in Indonesia, where Judy personally trained her workers in the craft. Each card is then carefully assessed, before being packed with the envelope and a small map of London showing where the landmark is.
In addition to the ‘Spots London’ range, Judy has started to develop a Paris range with the Eiffel Tower currently available online.
So now you have everything you need to start your week with giving someone  a truly awesome gift! Have fun snoochers!!
