Mavic 2 Pro Drone
Brian Stewart, VP of Managed Services
For those that are looking for the ultimate Christmas gift, may I suggest the DJI Mavic 2 Pro. This drone is the latest in drones from DJI, one of the leaders in drones. The Mavic 2 Pro sports a Hasselblad L1D-20c camera from the Swedish manufacturer known for their high-end, ergonomic, uncompromising image quality cameras. The camera is capable of gorgeous 20-megapixel aerial shots in great color detail while also being able to record video in 4K detail. The drone is foldable and has a flight time of roughly 30 minutes at speeds up to 42mph with a maximum distance of 11 miles. It can also be flown in winds up to 18mph. At 8.4 inches long and 3.5 inches wide this is a small but very capable way to record video and take pictures from a birds-eye view. The Mavic 2 Pro will set you back $1500.00 so it is not for those with a small wallet.

The Surface Headphones are a must have for the music lover, business traveler, or technology fan. These headphones boast adjustable noise cancellation, crisp audio and voice clarity with a battery life up to 15 hours. The noise cancellation adjustment is one of the best features of these Bluetooth headphones. Simply dial the noise cancellation up or down with a simple movement of the dial on the left ear to hear as little or as much of the outside world. The right ear controls include a volume adjust, microphone mute, or call hang up. These headphones are comfortable and engineered with the user in mind. From everyday wear in the office to travel days – the Surface headphones are the perfect choice.
The Surface Headphones can be purchased on the Microsoft website for $349 (Plus tax and shipping). https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/surface-headphones/8nrm8dz2zw43?activetab=pivot:overviewtab
Steve Taylor, Technical Engineer
This is a great gift for the vintage arcade fans. Petty Arcade, a Winston-Salem business that specializes in sales, service, and rentals of arcade games, pool tables, and more, is responsible for these hand-built arcade machines. Simply choose a game theme for your hand-built cabinet and choose either 60 or 412 different vintage games including some of the all-time favorites – Mrs. Pacman, Frogger, Donkey King, and Galaga. A gift for all ages providing hours of fun.
Nebula Capsule Mini Projector
Megan Denton, Help Desk Specialist
If you are looking for a great gift for the entire family the Nebula mini projector would be the perfect splurge. Pile up on some pillows and make it an evening to sit back, relax, and stream your favorites from Hulu, Netflix, and other similar services. Take it on your camping trip and make the great outdoors greater or convert any space into a theater.
VNkomax Lightning Cable USB Tassel Key Chain
Kisha Johnson, Client Coordinator
A great small gift for those who love cute tech accessories…. the Nkomax Lightning Cable USB Tassel Key Chain iPhone Charger is a lightning to USB charger.
It is made of soft, superb lamb leather. It is available in a variety of colors. It can be conveniently attached to key chains and wristlets/pouches or any other on-the-go item of your choosing. It is a bit pricier than standard chargers, however it is considered a highly functional, exclusive luxury item making it well worth the price.
