Cool Technology That’s Either A Pro Or A Ro

technologyEverywhere you look, you realize that you are surrounded by technology. For work. For play. For doing everything every day. There’s so much being created and it’s all getting better faster than you ever thought. Just when you think you’ve seen the most amazing tech ever, something else comes along to prove it is better. And the makers want you to know it’s better by slapping Pro somewhere in the name. But that’s okay, because the truth is, many of these really do live up to their title. So, that being said, here are five great products that want you to know that they’re a real pro at what they do and one that’s a real ro (bot that is) at what it does.
