As the holiday season approaches, it's time to think about stocking stuffers and more substantial gifts for friends, colleagues and loved ones, especially the tech geeks in your life. This week's "Halloween Spectacular" produced by Pepcom is an annual event designed to let tech journalists view and get their hands on the latest electronic doodads, apps, peripherals and accessories that may be worthy additions to your shopping list or just something you'd like to have yourself. One interesting trend is that some of these are not usually considered typical digital or techie gifts, such as like Masterlock's digital padlock that you can unlock with your smartphone and the Speedforce accessory that turns any bike into a "smart bike." There are also several devices that let you do things you never thought of doing, like the Petzi Treat Cam that lets you share video of your pet remotely and more. Probably the most unique of the bunch is the Muse "brain-sensing headband," while TripIt Pro mobile travel app is the most practical, especially for business road warriors. Here are 10 potential gifts from the Oct. 28 event in San Francisco that caught our eye.
