Gadgets for the Guru

Caffeinated on the go, the Handpresso Auto is one gadget for the commuter looking to get his or her espresso fix. This espresso maker is compatible with a standard 12-volt car socket. Users plug in their Handpresso Auto, add the required amount of water (it alerts you when its full) and slip in an ESE pod of their choice. The espresso maker takes about two minutes to heat the drink and will beep three times when it is ready. Next, the user just has to flip the Handpresso Auto upside down and press the ‘brew’ button on the side to pour the espresso into his or her cup. The device is the size of a travel mug and fits in most cup holders. Watch next week for our review on Instagram when the AZTB test it out. $199.99 To see how the Handpresso Auto works, CLICK HERE!

This one was a favorite for the AZTB gadget team, designed by audio innovator Altec Lansing, “The Jacket” is a customizable, wireless Bluetooth speaker. This speaker allows listeners to switch between a red or black skin to fit their décor or mood. The speaker wirelessly pairs with and remembers up to eight Bluetooth-enabled devices, allowing several people to share a speaker while hanging out or during a party. The speaker has a 30-foot wireless range, delivers crystal clear sound for up to eight hours on a full charge and allows users to make and answer hands-free calls. The team jammed out with this gadget, it cranked loud for a little speaker and had good bass, thumbs up for this one. $129.99
