Here are Hanna Sheikh Mokhtar’s picks on what techies love
1. VK200 KEYFOB by CTX
With 78 keys and a full-sized QWERTY layout, the VK200 KEYFOB is a laser projection virtual keyboard that can match typing speeds of a standard keyboard. No larger than a matchbox, the VK200 KEYFOB projects a keyboard on any flat surface. As you type, it gives out a simulated sound feedback with its built-in display screen showing your key presses in real time for faster typing.
Available at www.Amazon.com from US$113 (RM468)
2. MX MASTER BY LOGITECH
An out-of-this-world looking rechargeable wireless mouse for Macs and Windows PCs that offers smooth, precise operation, lots of customisation options, good ergonomics and works on almost any surface. Connects to up to three computers using Logitech’s Unifying Receiver USB dongle or opt for Bluetooth connectivity. Its speed-adaptive scroll wheel lets you auto-shift from click-to-click to hyper-fast scrolling, while its unique thumbwheel lets you scroll side-to-side.
Available at www.Amazon.com at US$69.99 (RM290)
3. UE ROLL BY LOGITECH
This funky-looking and colourful, fully waterproof, wireless Bluetooth speaker gives out sounds that are really good for its size. The speaker comes in multiple colour options and its IPX7 rated life-resistant shell is waterproof for up to 30 minutes and up to a maximum depth of one metre. It comes with a marine-grade bungee cord that you can attach to your bike, backpack or even yourself.
Available at www.Amazon.com at US$64.99 (RM269)
4. TRAVEL ROCKSTAR BY BELKIN
The Belkin Travel RockStar is more than a surge protector as it also has a built-in 3000mAh rechargeable battery pack so you can juice up your phone or tablet even when you’re not near an outlet. Designed with two-outlets, it comes with 2A USB fast charging 615 Joules of surge protection.
It’s compatible with the Phone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5/5s, Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy S6, iPad mini 3, iPad Air 2, Galaxy Tab A, Galaxy S5, Galaxy Tab Pro, Nexus 7 and comes with a two-year warranty.

5. PIXEL BY ADONIT
Adonit’s new Pixel, the company’s most accurate and responsive stylus to date, has an improved 1.9mm Pixelpoint tip and is compatible with several iPads— nine to be exact — not just the top-end ones. Like Adonit’s two earlier styluses, the Jot Script and the Touch, the Pixel is Bluetooth-enabled and turns on automatically when pressed to the screen when using certain note-taking and sketch apps that have built-in Pixel support. It also comes with a magnetic charger/dock that plugs into the USB port on your computer.
