If you thought that programming robots and genetic engineering were pursuits that required thousands of dollars or a security clearance, think again.

Today it’s possible to do both at home — and at a price point that’s comparable to many common gifts you might get your loved ones during the holiday season. So before you go holiday shopping, check out our curated collection of some of the most fascinating learning-oriented products that we’ve encountered recently while making Hard Reset.

About the Hard Reset Gift Guide:

As we research the Hard Reset series, we see a lot of amazing technologies and products — some we feature on the show, some we don’t. But as we’re getting to the end of the year, and a lot of folks are buying gifts for each other, we thought it would be helpful to put together a gift guide.

Each of these products has been selected because we think, like all the Hard Reset topics we cover, they invite you to re-think something in your life from the ground up. This show will hopefully give you some ideas for gifts you can give your loved ones, and they’ll definitely be conversation starters.
