The old-fashioned whiteboard got a makeover. This large, cloud-connected 4K screen functions like an all-access whiteboard, with workers anywhere able to doodle or drop images onto it. Saving ideas is a cinch. And it comes with marker- and eraser-esque styli -- because some things never go out of fashion. ($6,000; google.com)
Hotel TVs: Great for watching 24-7 listings of poolside entertainment, not so great for worthwhile programming. Roku’s new line of set-top streamers fixes that.
