Finding the perfect gift for the tech lover in your life does not have to be difficult. News 12’s gadget guru Andrew Ehinger continues his annual look at some great holiday tech gifts in The Download!

Roku’s Streambar

Big screen televisions are popular around the holidays. But as the screens get thinner, some say the sound coming out of them gets thinner or tinnier, because there's no room for good speakers. That's where an external soundbar can make all the difference. The Streambar from Roku has something extra. The powerful speaker system is super compact but also has Roku's streaming software built in. That means you can easily access its growing library of streaming TV stations and music channels.

Oral-B IO Series 9

Can an electric toothbrush be high tech and cool? Oral-B says yes with its new IO Series 9 brush. Aside from controlling the micropulses through the brush head, the IO system also tracks in real time how hard you're brushing, and where you're brushing. All that data shows up on its companion mobile app.

Unagi Model One

Riding around town doesn't get any cooler than on the Unagi Model One electric scooter. The elegantly designed dual motor scooter is great for last mile commutes or quick local trips.
