Merge Cube – The Hologram In Your Hand, $15 US
The Merge Cube is a soft, spongy cube that can be used with a phone or any headset that is augmented reality (AR) compatible. When viewed through the companion app on your phone, the glyphs on the cube turn into holographic-like images. Spin the cube 360-degrees around in your hand and discover all sorts of easter eggs on the far side, or enjoy one of the innovative gaming experiences. The Merge Cube offers hours of fun for the whole family and at just $15, it is probably the best phone accessory ever made. www.mergevr.com

Shure SE215-K-UNI Sound-Isolating Earphones $99 US

These earphones fit snug and comfortably, sealing out unwanted noise to let you “hear it all” at lower volume levels. They are perfect for late night Netflix binge watching, on the couch or in bed… believe me, I own a pair. Plus, with the included mic and remote (compatible with both Apple and Android) you can also take your calls in-between your favourite songs. www.shure.com
