Every year brings hot new devices that geeks, enthusiasts, and sometimes even grandmas would love to find inside a gift-wrapped box: Think iPods in 2001, the Flip pocket camcorder and Kindle e-book reader in 2007, and last year's Droid.

So what's hot for 2010?

Mobile anything is the hottest category, of course, with smart phones, tablet computers, and e-book readers leading the way. But 3D capability is also popping up nearly everywhere.

You can get 3D capability in TVs, Blu-ray players, cameras, camcorders, computers, and even some phones and tablets (all Ratings available to subscribers). But how ready is 3D for primetime? For answers to that question, see "3D is everywhere" in our December issue, just posted:

 cheap US store online3D isn't yet a must-have home technology for all. Though the price of 3D TVs is dropping, and some models offer jaw-dropping 3D images, performance is far from stellar for all models. We've found 3D computers disappointing and recommend 3D cameras and camcorders only if you can view their output on a 3D TV. Their 3D images have looked unimpressive on smaller displays.

In general we've found that plasma TVs offer the best 3D experience. All the 3D-capable TVs we've tested recently (Ratings available to subscribers) can produce compelling 3D images with satisfying three-dimensional depth. But ghosting (double images caused by the still-necessary glasses) plagues many models.

As for 3D computers, in February we looked at the Acer Aspire 5738DG-6165 3D laptop. Our conclusion: "It's inevitable that 3D technology will improve over time. For now, however, stick with a boring, but tried-and-true, two-dimensional computer."

Test results with one of the first 3D cameras, the Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D W1, were mixed. Our bottom line:

Unless you're determined to be the first person in your neighborhood with a 3D digital camera, pass on this model. Its high price and limited feature set don't make it a very good value. But, if you're considering it for its 3D capability, don't buy it until you're sure you don't get disoriented by 3D imagery and video. Some viewers, including a number of those who looked at our test shots, can experience dizziness, headaches, or visual disorientation.

As more and more 3D-capable electronics make their way into our testing lab, we'll let you know what we find. It may not be quite there yet in all categories, but 3D is one of the most exciting recent developments in electronics—we're looking forward to seeing how good it can get.
