There’s plenty of presentation advice that covers everything from public speaking to following up and even how you can attempt to emulate Steve Jobs. But what about the technology involved? Having great equipment can take your presentations to the next level. Everyone’s a fan of cool gadgets, and these four can help you enhance your presentations.

Denon Professional’s new wireless presentation hub is a tabletop device designed to remove the frustrations of setting up or switching presenters. All you have to do is connect Kudo to a projector or monitor with an HDMI cord, then you can mirror your computer or phone’s screen via a wireless connection. With Kudo, you can easily start your presentation without dealing with any awkward setup problems; and it’ll even help you tame that mess of wires in your conference room.

“Kudo makes it a breeze to run effective meetings,” said Costa Lakoumentas, senior VP of Denon Professional. “Gone are panicked moments of frustration that can kill the collaborative buzz. Kudo exchanges that stress for a welcome array of productivity tools—all in a compact format equipped for the coming wave of ultra-high definition displays.”

Ricoh’s Theta S. handheld camera is here to help overcome the awkwardness of remote presentations.

You can even use it to record HD spherical videos that you can share on Google Maps and your favorite social media networks.

Kaz Eguchi, the President of Ricoh Imaging Americas Corp said, “In recent days, immersive imagery, augmented and virtual reality named for growing popularity where a high quality produces at an affordable price that is appealing to everyone who is interested in capturing and sharing them with the whole world around them in this new, exciting digital imaging format.”

Yes, a tablet made it onto this list; but this isn’t an ordinary tablet. The Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro has a built-in, rotatable projector that can display up to 70 inches wide. It even has a built-in kickstand that you can use to prop it up, tilt it, or even hang it up. Why bother with moving your presentation around onto different devices? With this tablet, all you’ll need is some wall space.

Smart Kapp still feels like everything you love about an old-school whiteboard, but with some serious tech upgrades. You can write on the board using an ordinary dry erase marker, and everything you write can be synced up to its corresponding app, which means no more scrambling to jot down notes from your brainstorm. You save and share ideas as you create them.
