Its companion app will teach you basic chords and scales, and it can be used as a digital controller with countless DAWs, like GarageBand and Ableton Live.

However, you can simulate the experience of flying with a SKEYE Mini Drone. This nimble flyer comes with several preset maneuvers for beginners, and a remote control range of up to 50 feet. It also captures both photo and video in glorious HD, and stores them on an included 4 GB microSD card. The SKEYE Mini Drone with HD Camera is available here for 40 percent off retail, only $59.

DreamScreen HDTV Backlighting And Total Surround Kits
DreamScreen puts LEDs behind your TV which light up at 60 frames per second based on whatever you're watching. Sometimes they'll mimic the color, like lighting up in red and orange during a fiery explosion, and sometimes they'll become a complementary color to make what's happening on the screen pop. Regardless, the screen will feel larger, the picture will be softened, and the content will be more immersive than ever. Normally DreamScreen costs $169.99, but Cracked readers can get it for $139.99. Take an extra 15 percent off with coupon code GIFTSHOP15.
