Computer monitors coated in 24 carat gold, extravagant clamshell phones and bespoke speaker systems are some of the most extravagant March 2016 tech ideas. While products like these appeal to a very specific consumer segment, there's plenty of affordable technology that can be made as part of a DIY project. What's most interesting about the latest DIY technology projects is that they feature very new technologies—augmented reality, smart rings and wearable gaming devices to name a few.

For consumers who appreciate cost savings but would rather purchase an item directly off of a store shelf, there are also a number of products that are being introduced with the budget-conscious shoppers in mind. A few great examples include the Lenovo Vibe K5 and Vibe K5 Plus, as well as the DirectStream Junior digital-to-analog converter.
