 5 Cool Tech Gadgets on Online - Under $60!

5 Cool Tech Gadgets on Online - Under $60!

- Hey guys! What's going on? My name is Mohit! 
Now, spoiler alert, we do have some really excellent pieces of tech to show you guys, all under $60.

1. Hcman mouse mat:

Let's kick this off with the Hcman mouse mat. It's a perfect size, it has excellent metal finishing on it, it looks very in keeping with a modern desk, and it also touches compatible with changing the LEDs by placing your finger on this fingerprint pad right here in the middle. 

Clicking on it lets you cycle through numerous different colors or turns it off altogether, and it is well worth noting that the Hcmanlogo in the bottom corner does light up. And it also has a fair chunk of weight to it as well. It feels like a sturdy product. 

If you want a mouse mat with a little bit of RGB accent lighting to go along with your set up, and you want to do it on the cheap with a lovely braided cable, I wouldn't look much further than this. 

2. Padlock:

Now, this is something that I've been using my outside gate for over two weeks now, and it's been working really, really well. And trust me, when I picked this thing up, I thought it was going to be really, really bodge. 

And in fact, this thing is that good that it's the second one that I've bought. You get an instruction manual in the box, you get a micro-USB cable, and then you get, well, the lock itself. This is a padlock that scans your fingerprint. Permanently, to set this thing up, it's an absolute breeze. 

You download the app on your phone, and you log in with a username and password, and then once you've gone ahead and downloaded the app, it comes with a QR code in the box that is tied to your lock and you then scan that code. Now you can go ahead and with the in-built Bluetooth, go ahead and unlock the lock. 

It'll say "connecting..." on the screen, and then the lock will go ahead and unlock. And then on the phone screen, once it's opened, it will also give you an at-a-glance battery percentage so that you can make sure that your lock isn't running out of battery. Mine has stayed on 100% for the last three weeks now. 

Now, it doesn't stop there. As well as unlocking this little thing with a Bluetooth connection from your phone,
It also has a fingerprint scanner on the front of it. So now, permanently, it's unlocked. 

It just works, and I thought that this was going to be a gimmick that wouldn't work. It works. 

3. Little Projector:

Now the most expensive item by a considerable amount, but still under our $60 price budget, is this tiny projector. 

Yeah, a projector for $60. Now, this thing does look like a little bit of a toy with these big, thick, mushy buttons on the top and this focus finder on the left-hand side, and that's because it sort of is a toy but holds second. 

This projector is aimed at kids, mainly because, well, they won't really be too fussed about the image quality. Now you can't expect miracles from a projector that's under $60, but it really did get me thinking. 

If you simply go to Online Store and type in "monitor," after a little scroll, one of the cheapest ones that I've found on here is this AOC monitor for £54. It's still more expensive than this. 

Now, you have lots of ways of connecting into this mini projector on the side. Well, this is what I'll be using. It has a full-sized HDMI port, so you can literally plug this thing into your laptop or your phone or your computer. Virtually anything which has HDMI. 

And it shows up as a 720p display. Now, I don't think it even warrants the 720ptag because the quality from this thing really isn't that good, but it's doable. 

You can plug a computer in this, and with a pitch-black room at your disposal, you can have a relatively large image for the small price of, well, under $60. I don't think there's another product on the market that will let you do that. 

It also has a micro SD slot in the back of the projector, so you can chuck on a couple of films, give it to your kids and let them watch away and you can also plug in a set of headphones on here, and it also includes remote and different bits and bobs like that. 

One thing to note, though - no battery inside of this; it does need constant power via the included proprietary power cable. But still, a full-on projector that fits in the palm of your hand for under $60- can't really complain. 

4.WiFi security camera:

Now I couldn't include this little device in the top 5. This is probably one of the cheaper ones here, coming in at under £20. This is a WiFi security camera. 

I'm not going to drivel on too much about this little camera because I've already gone ahead and done a dedicated video on things. After all, it is the best security camera for under £20 that money can buy. 

Mostly, it's a little WiFi camera that has night vision. It sends you to push notifications to your phone when it either sees and/or hears something. It's powered by micro-USB on the back of it, so you can actually power it up in a remote location with a battery bank. 

It has a couple of little gimmicks like two-way audio, and you can live to view it from anywhere in the world as long as the camera and you have an internet connection. 

For the last few weeks, I've been looking at my little puppy with this thing, and it's been beneficial at notifying me when the puppy is barking and/or just letting me have peace of mind, to make sure that he's okay by life viewing him on the camera. All in all, I think this camera is absolutely excellent. 

I can't rave enough about it, and they can add more to this thing with software updates in the future. So, go ahead and use the link in the description and buy one of these before they get more and more expensive because, trust me, they will. 

They will get more expensive. I'd pay over $60 for this thing. If this thing was over $60, I wouldn't grumble. But it's not, it's $23.83. A security camera on the cheap. 

5. Bluetooth speaker:  

Okay, guys, so coming in last, but not least, we have this Bluetooth speaker that I actually bought my girlfriend two weeks ago, and this is another one that I purchased myself, just because I think this thing looks really lovely. I want to put it in the office, or just put it somewhere on display, and I mean, heck, I'm probably not even going to use it. 

This is a Bluetooth speaker. As you guys can tell, it has four independent drivers on the front here, and I bought this for my girlfriend because it looks super, super cute. She has it up on her mantelpiece at home. This thing seems that nice that I wish they had put this control pod on the top of it on the back of the speaker, just so that it's a little bit more hidden, but then I suppose people would complain that it's not very accessible. 

But on here, you have the mode button, five volts in for charging, a 3.5-millimeter input jack for listening to legacy devices, and then you also have a micro SD card for listening to music on one of those and obviously, this thing has Bluetooth inside of it too. 

You have the volume up and down buttons, play, and pause, and then you also have a power button, and, yes, it has a built-in microphone too. And as you guys can hear, this thing as well as looking awesome sounds pretty good too. Now, this thing definitely looks better than it sounds. 

If you want a Bluetooth speaker to have exceptional sound quality, this isn't where I would be looking. Still, then again, if you want a speaker that has excellent sound quality, you probably want to spend a little bit more than $60, but yet still, if you're on a budget, you want something that looks nice and has a half-decent sound quality for the price, this is really, really good. 

The thing is, because it's so large, it has a vast chamber inside of it so the low end, in this low-priced speaker, is quite adequate, whereas, with cheaper speakers, they're a bit smaller, they don't have the volume of space inside of them, and the bass usually lacks, and I hate a track without bass in it. So this, well, it gets my approval anyway. 

But there you go, guys, those are 5 tech items that I've been using in my life this month. All under $60and things that I've actually thought: That's pretty good, and I want to tell you guys about it.
