So, it’s finally time to build that man cave you have always dreamed about. However, there needs to be some techy stuff in there to make life easier. What does every man cave need? Here is a handful of suggestions.
Make Everything Smart
Buy as many smart devices as possible. From televisions to light bulbs to speakers, you’ll be able to control everything in the room with just your voice. Not only does this make controlling all of your gadgets that much easier, but who doesn’t want to have a few shots and talk to their light bulb?
Curved or Projection Screen
The type of television you purchase will depend on how much size you are working with. If you are somewhat limited, go for the 4K curved screen, this will give you the biggest bang for your buck. However, if you don’t really have to worry about space, then you should definitely purchase a projector with a theater-quality screen. Just imagine how great those weekend games will look when you have friends over in your man cave.
Having the Available Funds
While money isn’t technology, it is definitely needed to buy technology. Since you probably don’t want to drain your bank account, it’s best to finance your next investment, and it makes sense to take out a personal loan from a private lender to start and finish your project. On the plus side, if you are in a career where you entertain clients, you can always write off a portion of your taxes. Check with an accountant for full details.
Professional Massage Chair
While you may think this suggestion is more furniture than technology, professional massage chairs actually have a lot of technology in them. After a grueling afternoon of half-court, who doesn’t want to come back to their domain and get a professional-quality massage. Between rollers, warmth settings, and adjustable angles, you can spend the time to make sure the settings are right for your body type and pressure points.
While the newest system is always cool to have on hand, you also need something that is reminiscent back to the arcade days. Having a modern arcade-style unit installed means that you get that vintage feel but all the modern touches such as LED screens and dozens of games on one unit. Plus, they just look cool.
If you haven’t tried virtual reality yet, now is a perfect time. Higher-end VR headsets can allow you to lose yourself in the video game you are playing. Not so much into video games? No worries, they also have travel apps that place you in the middle of virtually anywhere you care to visit. If you’re feeling particularly lazy, you can even watch your favorite television show or movie on them without ever even lifting your head.
For those times when blasting your music is simply not feasible, a pair of wireless headphones is a much-needed accessory. These are something that you don’t really want to cheap out on, so make sure to read reviews and don’t be afraid to spend a little extra for quality.
