The team at Vantage Robotics has spent a lot of time making high tech products–It was founded by two Stanford alums–and now they’ve just opened pre-orders for what may be the best flying camera we’ve seen. At under $1000 and sized small enough to fit in a backpack (without getting destroyed), you wouldn’t expect Snap to pack things like a Sony Exmor 4k sensor, gimbal stabilization and a dynamic geofence. But it does. It also has a magnetic breakaway architecture and a modular design that will allow expanded capabilities in the time. All this fits into a package that is deployable from your bag in minutes, controllable with your phone or dedicated controllers and weighs a whopping 500 grams. If the best camera is the one you have with you, Snap is it when it comes to drones.

Unzip your coat and have some mulled wine on the house—you’ve arrived at your final gifting destination: The Holiday Gift Guide. It’s like your friendly neighborhood one-stop holiday shop, except instead of balsa wood ornaments, ours is packed with thoughtful gifts for everyone on your list. Future heirlooms, small-but-significant stocking stuffers, and gear for getting out there (or staying in)—are all right here. There’s no music playing in the background though, so you’ll just have to hum Bing Crosby while you click around instead.
