LeftBrain's wish list for Santa

Colourful grid of techy items, all on the LeftBrain Christmas list

'Tis the season, and our LeftBrain team is bringing a touch of tech innovation to Santa's workshop. Our curated wish list, featuring everything from battery-powered socks to ethical hacking experiences, promises top-notch gifts to bring a smile to even the most discerning geeks. Happy holidays (and all that jazz)!

1. Bambu Lab X1-Carbon Combo 3D Printer

Recognised by TIME magazine as a Best Invention of 2022, the X1 stands as a revolutionary 3D printer with AI-powered capabilities and the ability to print in multi colours and materials. It was one of the most successful projects ever launched on the crowd-funding Kickstarter platform. We'd back it, that's for sure.

2. Hack the Box

Hack the Box is a cybersecurity upskilling platform, providing a suite of ethical hacking experiences for individuals and businesses. With top-quality content and a gamified approach, it is the ideal solution for cybersecurity professionals to continuously enhance their cyber-attack readiness.

3. Electric heated socks

These electric heated socks are pretty life changing. Equipped with rechargeable battery packs, they have hidden heating pads that cover the entire foot, from toe to heal. They are comfortable, warm, water-resistant and thin enough to fit in shoes. Perhaps not the most stylish... but undeniably epic for those work from home days.

4. LG UltraFine Ergo 4K Ultra HD 31.5" Nano IPS LCD Monitor

Check out this beauty of a screen! With exceptional image quality, an ergonomic and flexible stand, and a 50Hz / 5ms response time, the LG UltraFine Ergo Monitor is a visual delight.

5. Osmo Pocket 3

Capture detail-rich imaging in the palm of your hand with the handheld Pocket 3 camera. Featuring a powerful 1-inch CMOS sensor and the ability to film in 4K/120fps, it's perfect for smooth, detailed footage and slow-motion moments. Santa, pretty please!

6. 2023 Apple MacBook Pro 16", M3 Pro Processor

No LeftBrain wish list is complete without the latest MacBook Pro. Powered by Apple's M3 Pro Processor, it boasts RAM aplenty, a 1080p HD camera, Liquid Retina XDR display, Magic Keyboard, and all-around pro performance for work and play.

7. YubiKey

The YubiKey bio series sets the gold standard in biometric authentication. Offering passwordless, multi-factor authentication using a fingerprint and robust biometric security, it's geeky but incredibly secure.

8. Bugatti

At this point, the Slack thread got a bit out of hand with LeftBrainers asking Santa for five bed detached houses. But on the off chance of a Christmas miracle, we would like a Bugatti please. Failing that, the LEGO Technic 42083 Bugatti Chiron will do.
