This wiki has been updated 15 times since it was first published in December of 2018. Standard globes may have been cool for kids in the '60s and '70s, but in the days of smartphones, video games, and tablets, they need a little more oomph to capture the attention. That's where these augmented reality models can help. They allow children to interact with this geographical-learning tool in a way that is more relevant and familiar to today's screen-oriented youth. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

A wandering writer who spends as much time on the road as in front of a laptop screen, Brett can either be found hacking away furiously at the keyboard or, perhaps, enjoying a whiskey and coke on some exotic beach, sometimes both simultaneously, usually with a four-legged companion by his side. He has been a professional chef, a dog trainer, and a travel correspondent for a well-known Southeast Asian guidebook. He also holds a business degree and has spent more time than he cares to admit in boring office jobs. He has an odd obsession for playing with the latest gadgets and working on motorcycles and old Jeeps. His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
