It's the time of year when a lot of IT publications come out with their annual holiday gift picks for the technology minded. But rather than come up with the usual list of laptops, smartphones, or computer games, CIOZone wanted to go a little outside of the (gift) box and find some really cool toys to put under the tree.
What sort of cool? Well how about your very own home radio frequency identification (RFID) system. That's right, Wal-Mart isn't the only place in town that can capitalize on RFID technology. Now you can use it to help keep track of items around the house.
Of course, Green IT is very much a hot issue, and we've got you covered on that front as well. How about a hydrogen powered fuel cell car, an Eco-Button that will quickly power down your computer and save valuable watts, or an energy self-sufficient model house project you can undertake with the kids?
Take the slide show to see if the gift you've always wanted is on our list, or better still, tell us what you would really like to see Santa slip under your tree this holiday season.
