GoPano micro

Here’s a fun gizmo perfect for summer vacations: the GoPano micro, a lens for the iPhone 4 and 4S that enables you to create panoramic videos. Just snap the lens to your iPhone and tap “Record” to make cool, interactive, 360-degree videos. Record your next concert or sporting event, or make a streetview video in a new city. A specially curved mirror gathers light from all directions and funnels it into your iPhone’s camera — then the free GoPano app transforms this image into a live interactive scene where you control the view. Instantly upload and share your videos on the GoPano website and beyond. It’s a whole new way to come full circle. $79.95.

2COOL iPad Case

For the impeccably accessorized iPad (and its tech-savvy owner), consider the 2COOL iPad Case. Made to fit all three generations of the iPad, the case protects the cutting-edge tablet and features a silicone spill-resistant, dust-proof, built-in Bluetooth keyboard. With an ergonomic, adjustable viewing stand, the case lets you take advantage of all the benefits of a full-sized laptop without the added weight or neck strain. Available in black, brown, pink, red and white. $59.99.

Jaybird Sportsband Bluetooth Headphones

Taking their cue from the 1980s but with a sleek, modern edge, these nifty Bluetooth headphones let you experience music wirelessly. They come with “apt-X on board,” which cleans up and adds depth, bass and treble to your Bluetooth music, matching CD-quality output. You can play, pause, next and back track remotely, right from your headphones. Take calls with the push of a button; music pauses and resumes after your call. Indoors, range up to 10 meters from your music device; outdoors, you’ll need your device on an armband. Available in sporty color combinations. Lifetime warranty. $99.

G-GO

The first portable, water-resistant Bluetooth speaker on the market, the rugged, rough-and-tumble G-GO lets you take your favorite music anywhere and everywhere, from poolside to the beach and beyond — even into the shower. Powered by AA batteries, its Universal USB power port charges any USB-chargeable gadget from the G-GO, including iPhone, Android and BlackBerry devices. Available in black, white and metallic blue, exclusively at Target stores and the Target website. $69.
