A Creator’s Holiday Wishlist
Fill santa’s sleigh with some creative goodies this year
It’s that time of year again - but doesn’t it feel like last Christmas was yesterday? Despite the last 360-ish days flying past us, this year has seen some fun inventions and additions to the creator market. From cameras to microphones, speakers to miscellaneous, the holidays are a great opportunity for creators to add one or two more gadgets to their setup, so here’s a little wishlist to act fast on before Santa’s elves shut their workshop for the holiday!
Insta360 X3 360° Video Camera
Creators are always looking for ways to offer consumers innovative visual content, and Insta360 has created a revolutionary set of cameras that do just this. The Insta360 X3 can film 360 degrees of content in up to 5.7k. It’s light, can run for over an hour, and is compatible with most devices. These cameras give creators the opportunity to explore completely new types of content, and open up a variety of possibilities for editing. A few example uses for the X3 are:
Podcasting: using one camera for a podcast to save on edit time and money.
Extreme Sports: offering viewers a more immersive and stimulating experience.
Music: showcasing live events from crowd and artist perspective simultaneously.
Cameras are constantly undergoing exciting changes, but the opportunity to capture the entire world around you feels like something from a sci-fi novel. For creators looking for a new way to showcase their talents, Insta360 cameras are a must-have.
Bose QuietComfort35 Noise Canceling Headphones
Audio quality is such a huge part of content creation. Making sure your audio is crisp, effective, and actually offers something to the project is of paramount importance, and this can be what sets good content apart from mediocre content. So, one of the first steps to elevate your content has to be grabbing a pair of headphones that are going to show you exactly what you’re listening to with incredible clarity.
Being completely wireless, these Bose QuietComfort 35 cans operate via bluetooth, meaning you can walk around and feel comfortable while listening. The noise cancellation means that you can sit in the library, on the bus, on a college campus, and not miss a single bit of audio. With 20 hours of battery life, you can fall into a bottomless pit of audio possibilities, and let the creative juices flow.
Fully Jarvis Laminate Standing Desk
Standing desks are becoming more and more popular for modern creators, and this addition to the market from Fully is one of the best. It’s clean, sturdy and lightweight, offering a good amount of space without being too intrusive and boasting an industry-leading weight limit of 158kg. Made with 100% recycled wood, it’s eco-conscious and will provide you with a trusty canvas to work on.
There are several potential benefits to using a standing desk. One benefit is that standing may promote better posture, as it can help to engage the core muscles and prevent slouching. Standing may also help to increase blood flow and reduce the risk of certain health issues, such as obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. In addition, standing may help to increase energy levels and productivity, as it may help to reduce fatigue and increase alertness.
Barisieur Coffee-Making Alarm Clock
The sooner we all admit that 90% of our creative focus comes from our beloved caffeinated drink, the sooner we’ll all be able to continue on our paths shame-free. And the sooner we admit that we’ve all forgotten to set our 8am alarm a few too many times, and found out the hard way, the quicker we can admit that we might need two things in the morning - a reliable alarm clock, and a coffee. Luckily, Barisuer has taken the liberty of covering both bases in one classy product. Meet the coffee-making alarm clock.
Now, you can be woken with a peaceful yet stern alarm clock, immediately being greeted with your some creative juice. With a walnut-on-black design and sleek glassware, the clock is equal parts classy and effective. The morning is the most important part of our day, so make you start it like a true creator.
reMarkable 2 Digital Notepad
This digital notepad is a modern solution to note-taking. Instantly write, save and recall any notes on a sleek and intuitive digital interface. Gone are the days when 27 notepads, unorganized and half-ripped, will be sitting at your desk provoking a recon mission to retrieve that math equation you wrote 7 years ago. Now, in a few taps, you can access and recall anything.
Huckberry Transparent Speaker
The clean, monochrome aesthetic is super ‘in’ right now, especially in the modern creative scene. So, why not couple this with a fun audio solution, to give you a portable, sleek and modern speaker to consume and create content with. Well, that’s what Huckberry did, and we’re not angry about it…
A powerful DSP allows you to listen to projects with crystal-clear audio, housed in an aluminum frame that’s nothing short of military grade. This is the perfect tool to listen to any kind of audio for any purpose. Its bluetooth abilities mean that it can sit far away from you, but can still be a loudmouth friend for all of your audio needs. For those looking for a speaker this Christmas, this is a great find.
