Tile bluetooth tracker and Bose wireless headphones are two of Peter Pham's favorite gadgets

MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif. If there’s a new gadget released, odds are Peter Pham has bought it.

The co-founder of tech incubator Science, Inc., Pham is obsessed with the latest new devices, and lives in a home surrounded by the newest in virtual reality, communication gear and bluetooth headphones.

With new devices, “we live in a world where we smile a little more and enjoy our lives a little more,” says Pham, whose company has helped firms like Dollar Shave Club and DogVacay get off the ground.

Gadget freak Peter Pham at home with an Oculus, Google Home, Aura photo frame and more.

On #TalkingTech, Pham also opts for out of the way, up and coming startups, like:

--Nucleus, a $199 digital intercom system to check in with his aging dad from home, the car or the office, without having to connect on FaceTime or Skype.

--Aura, a $399 digital photo frame with a twist--it pulls in photos from your smartphone collection.

He loves Google Home, Google’s $129 answer to Amazon’s Echo, a personalized digital assistant for the home to answer Google queries. (As it made my “Tech Turkey” list, we have a spirited debate about the device’s attributes.)

And he’s huge on the Bose QC35 bluetooth $349 headphones, for switching from AAA battery to USB charging. “I travel a lot,” he says. “If you love not hearing the hum of the engines or baby crying around you on a plane,” you’ll appreciate the headphones.
