So you're asking, MORE gadget gift ideas? How can you top yesterday's batch of digital wonders? How about a digital camera you can adjust the focus on – after you snap the photo? A garage door opener controlled with your smart phone? Bob Marley-inspired earbuds? Ski goggles with a heads-up display?
You won't believe what this camera – thing – does. And, yes, this rectancular tube is a digital camera. It takes digital pictures that you can fix the focus in AFTER you take the picture.
