A Beginner’s Guide to Future-Proofing Your Man Cave Tech


You finally have the space to build yourself a dream man cave. Whether you see yourself more as a Batman or a Bruce Wayne, you can’t have your technology and signature style going out of date by next year. You’re in this for the long hall. So buckle up; here are some of the best tech and gadgets you need to make your friends jealous for years to come.

A Seamless Internet Connection

Everyone in your house is on the internet at the same time, hogging your precious connection speeds. This just won’t do for your man cave. Set up a Wi-Fi mesh-networking kit to provide seamless internet connection to the entire house, no matter how many devices try to access it at the same time. The Wirecutter recommends the Netgear Orbi because it has the best throughput and range, so your smartphone, tablet, laptop and other devices won’t be trying to continuously shift from one access point to another. If you have a Bat Computer set up in your man cave, there also are plenty of Ethernet ports to give you a stable connection.

A Powerful Smartphone Processor

Now that you have the best internet connection available for years to come, you need the smartphone tech to match. Qualcomm Snapdragon mobile processors let you do powerful computing on your mobile devices, just like you would on a desktop computer. Whether you’re throwing a gaming party with your friends, watching a movie, taking pictures or messing around with virtual reality, these chips enable your devices to keep up with your every demand. Bruce Wayne waits for no man to connect to the internet, so you shouldn’t either.

A Massive TV

Since HD become a reality, TVs hadn’t changed much until recently. To make your man cave the envy of all your friends, you need a giant 4K TV to watch the game, stream videos or play video games. The latest 4K TVs offer a crisper and clearer picture because they have four times the amount of pixels and a higher pixel density as the old HD TVs. And the bigger you go, the bigger difference it makes. If you really want to feel like you’re on the field with your favorite team or in a fantasy world with the latest video game, you need a TV (and surround sound system to go with) that puts you right in the action. And if TV tech trends continue, you won’t have to buy a new one for years to come.

A Bomb Gaming System

No longer can you simply settle for the latest gaming system from Sony, Nintendo or Microsoft. Virtual reality and augmented reality are the gaming systems of the future. Even Batman would be jealous of your man cave if you got your hands on an Oculus Rift. Put on the headset, gather your controls and step into a world that is entirely different than your own. You can kick ass in the latest fighting game just like you would in real life, drive down the streets at unimaginable speeds or explore the fantasy world that surrounds you. This is cutting-edge technology, so there’s no telling what kind of games you’ll be able to play and what experiences you’ll be able to have in the future.

It’s not easy to keep up with changes in the tech world, but these gadgets should keep you ahead of the curve for a while.
