Prelude to a Gift Guide

In the coming weeks, we'll be putting the finishing touches on our inaugural Atlantic Tech Gift Guide. Unlike other gift guides, we're not going to focus exclusively on the newest gadgets. No, we want to put together a guide about what new products can extend your human capabilities, not your technological ones. We're as focused on DIY hacks -- like this pocket-sized espresso machine -- as we are on finished products from the world's biggest companies.

As you can imagine, this is a little more difficult than listing off the latest and greatest smartphone. We want to our selections relevant to the problems and opportunities that you encounter on a daily basis. So, you tell me: do you have a special hack that makes your sister's life easier? Do you want to know the best ways to watch TV without having a television? Would you like to give the gift of better sleep through technology?

Let me know in the comments or feel free to email me at: amadrigal[at]theatlantic.com.
