Cool Gadgets for the New Year

What a way to start the new year! Here are two gadgets that would be cool to have (my birthday is around the corner, by the way):

A 3d printer
An indoor helicopter (that flies in all directions!)

The 3d printer is about $2400, which isn’t too bad considering that a few years ago an HP Laser Jet III cost about the same… the helicopter, well that’s a bit more affordable (in the $60-$80 range).
