    "This camera is so small and fun! I love the different colors you can choose! every designer should have one. I think that you can just get it and put it in your office and it just makes everything look so much better. I love the fact that you can just snap a picture and they are the perfect size for decorating different things, so it will make your office, house, bedroom, and anything else, look awesome!"

    #3Google Cardboard

    "This is a fun, silly and thoroughly enjoyable waste of your time and money. I love it, though it got a little uncomfortable after a while. With my smartphone and the app and the Cardboard I was able to give Virtual Reality a try before splurging on a more expensive VR headset. Warning, it's addictive."

    "This is a really cool camera, but maybe not so much for a designer. It takes great videos, if that is what you are looking for, but it is not necessarily a 'design tool. Cool nonetheless though."

    "I design 3D graphics and artwork as a hobby, so I am always looking for new ways to capture real-world textures for skinning my CG models. Naturally I was excited at first to see the Olloclip 4-In-1 as a new entry in the cellphone photography world. Unfortunately, I don't think this model lives up to the hype. There are reports of manufacturing defects, and I find the extremely low price to be suspect as well. You get what you pay for, and despite my ongoing need for improving my cellphone's photo capabilities, I wouldn't recommend the Olloclip 4-In-1. "

    "I really like this tablet but I'm not sure if it the best gadget for a designer. I could think of other things that a designer would probably need, but not sure this would be it. It is functional and the screen responds very well. The display is amazing and it runs really fast."

    "I found this device to be very useful for my creative needs. It is very versatile and with my level of experience, I find it easy to use. That, along with the price, might not make it the first option to consider for first-time buyers. "
