Swingbyte

Here’s the perfect stocking-stuffer for the golfer in your life. Swingbyte is a 3-D swing analyzer that weighs less than an ounce and attaches to any club just below the grip. Upon contact with the ball, it transmits a digitized version of your swing via Bluetooth to Android and Apple smartphones and tablets. View your swing image — along with measurements of club head speed, swing plane, face angle, tempo, and loft and lie angles — during practice sessions, pinpoint swing flaws and work to correct them. Includes an app for Android and Apple devices. $149. (For a limited time, price includes a two-year subscription to LINKS Magazine.) swingbyte.com

Lightscoop

This revolutionary gizmo transforms the harsh light from your pop-up flash into pro-quality light for indoor photos. The lightweight device attaches to your DSLR camera and works by redirecting the flash, creating broad, natural, flattering light — and eliminating such indoor-photography snafus as dreaded red eye, uneven lighting and the “cave effect,” where people close to the flash are washed out and white while those in the background are dark and hard to see. At this price, what’s not to like? $29.95. lightscoop.com
