One Wetaskiwin business has a plethora of Christmas gift ideas for those wishing for the coolest electronics gifts of the season.

Super Bee Truck Accessories also has a top-notch selection of cutting-edge electronics gifts noted owner/operator Brent Metzker. Metzker said the gift of the season is the hover board, a two-wheeled self-balancing mini-vehicle. He said Super Bee sold 145 of them alone just on Black Friday. “That’s the number one item this Christmas,” said Metzker, who noted they come in different colours and also in a sit-down version. The company has sold about 3,000 in total.

He noted a local Wetaskiwin senior citizen bought one to zip around town on.

As cell phone and iPod music is popular and some new phones don’t have traditional headphone jacks anymore, Metzker said headphones are in demand. He’s got a good quality set of Bluetooth, or hi fi wireless, headphones available.

Keeping with the Bluetooth theme, Metzker has a selection of toques or beanies with built-in Bluetooth receivers, along with a warm neck roll as well. The Bluetooth receiver is removable so the toque can be washed. “The sound is good,” he said Dec. 9.

Ever heard of a 3-D printer? Metzker has them, and they are a computer that uses software to create an amazing variety of physical items out of plastic wire. He said the printer comes with software that allows creation of things like toys and tools, and lots of websites have more software available to create almost anything.

As streaming video gets hugely popular, Metzger pointed out the Android TV box can stream movies, TV shows, music and a lot more through a high-speed Internet hook-up. The little box is affordable and can be moved around the house and comes pre-loaded with the proper software, but much more can be added to it.

A gift idea for anyone who wants to go paperless is what Metzker calls a “boogie board,” an LCD writing screen. Almost weightless, the re-useable scratch pad would be very handy for anyone who needs to make a lot of quick notes. He said he has samples in store now, with stock coming in the future.

While a lot of parents know about scooters, the slender aluminum kids’ vehicle, they may not have seen the electric version. Metzker said the electric scooter can do 18 km/hr, and folds up so you can take it just about anywhere.

He also has a sample in-store of an electric skateboard; more stock is coming in the future.
