This is an iPad attachment and you can use it to quickly generate models of faces and objects, and then interact with them in augmented reality apps.
Meet Structure Sensor – and capture your world in 3D. 3D Scanning. Augmented Reality. Instant Measurements. Capture dense 3D models with the push of a button.
Do rapid 3D scanning of objects and people, 3D maps of interior spaces, and mixed reality experiences where fantasy becomes impossible to tell from reality.
When used as a 3D scanner, it allows you to capture dense geometry in real-time. It also lets you to simulate real world physics and create high-fidelity 3D models with high-resolution textures in seconds. It has the ability to capture fast, accurate, dimensions of objects and environments.

This might be very similar to Google Cardboard kit above and it is, but more sophisticated. Remember the Sony HMZ-T1/T2 personal 3D viewer few years back? Well, back then Sony was one of the pioneer in 3D HMD (Head Mounted Device) technology. Although still available for purchase from Amazon and elsewhere, it was some sort of bulky and not ergonomically designed. But Sony paved the path. Later many notable manufacturer iterated and refined the technology.
Samsung is notably one of them. They cleverly used their Galaxy and Note branded smartphones as a display, instead of dedicated electronics used in case of Sony. So the cost has been remarkably reduced. While an HMZ-T1 will set you back around $800, this Sammy is just a shy of $100. You can privately play your favorite games or movies in amazing 3D, just like the Google Cardboard, but with some extra bells and whistles.
If you do a Google search for Drone or try to find one online, you will find a lot of low-cost cute drones, such as this SKEYE Pico Drone, available from just under $30 onwards. They are very good as a toy or simple amateur photography, or use them for sheer joy of entertainment.
But a Phantom Drone is different. It is built for professional work such as professional photography or Hollywood movie shot where very precise camera movement is required with great stabilization. So this drone is made different. It uses GPS, 3-axis stabilization gimbal and a 2.7K or 4K camera of your choice.
So, this drone is definitely different in its pricing too. While the featured one costs around $699 for a 2.7K HD video camera version, its other versions can easily range up to $1500 to $2000 band or more.
It is not a headphone. It is your personal meditation assistant.
If you are dealing with too much stress in your day-to-day life, consider investing on Muse. It passively detects changes in your brain from outside your head using EEG (electroencephalography) technology. It reads feedback from your brain and uses it to show you how calm or active your mind becomes over a certain period of time. This information is then delivered into an App on your iOS or Android-based smartphone or tablet.
Use this to meditate every day and you will find yourself much calmer, relaxed and stress-free person in as just two weeks.
Every time you drive your car, if you feel drowsy, it will beep or give you voice or vibrating feedback every time it feels you are dozing off, making your drive safer. On the other hand, it is very smart sunglass. It takes pictures, videos and it has Bluetooth (so that you can connect this device with your smartphone), thus enabling you to receive calls on the go and listen to music.
Theia is equipped with a HD Camera, enabling you to take pictures or videos with just a press of a button. It has a flashlight as well located at the opposite side of the camera lens.
