Adult playthings is a trillion-dollar business, and we’re more than happy to reap the rewards of a competitive market battling to constantly one-up itself. Here are four of our favorites from the past year and the coming Spring. The new Samsung Galaxy camera takes cell-phone snappage to the next level: one side offers the Samsung android staple, whereas the other is a full-faced traditional shooter, suggesting that sometimes the best innovations are a return to tradition. The Kindle Fire HD is a brilliant addition to the tablet universe, but in conjunction with Amazon’s Audible.com library and the new app Whispersync, one can finally—we’ve been yearning for this app for years—seamlessly segue between e-book and audiobook. And for that transition, we use Dolce & Gabbana’s DS2012 headset, created in conjunction with audio innovators Grado Labs. The superluxe, handmade, all mahogany wood headphones ring in at $1,250 and are in Dolce & Gabbana stores now. For those subway rides when we need a lit break, we plug into our PlayStation Vita, which this February celebrates its one-year anniversary. We’re gleefully geared up for the time being, but who knows what the future will bring?
