Summer Tech Essentials



The theme of today’s satellite media tour was Essential Summer Tech. Now that school is out for summer, my kids are reveling in beach time, pool play and of course, a little tech time, too. Here are a few must-haves for summer tech for everyone in the family:


First up, if you have a young kid, you are probably familiar with Disney’s Palace Pets franchise. It’s one of the most popular apps by Disney and they just announced a second app called Palace Pets in Whisker Haven. This adorable app features all the princess pets we have come to love, and gives even more opportunity to groom, nurture, feed and play with them. (Free to download on iTunes, in-app purchases available)

When it comes to summer entertaining, look no further than the Touchjet Pond Projector. This the world’s first interactive touchscreen and is an amazing gadget that turns any flat surface into a touchscreen up to 80″. Definitely makes for more exciting Angry Birds match-ups on a life-size scale, and also perfect for watching movies outside in the summer. ($599)Touchjet Pond Projector

Finally, you can’t talk about summer entertaining without discussing music. The JBL Charge 2+ is a great complement to any outdoor gathering. It offers a whopping 12-hour battery life, features incredible sound, is water-resistant and splashproof. Not only that, but as the name implies, it also charges your phone while music is playing. Plus it comes in lots of fun colors. ($149.95)

For a smaller speaker option, the JBL Clip+ is another summer essential. Featuring incredible sound quality, it’s also water-resistant, has a built-in speakerphone and also offers 5 hours of battery life. The built-in carabiner makes it perfect for tagging along to any outdoor adventure. ($49.95)
