Isn’t technology fun? How about pairing up the technology with a book/film boyfriend like my long-time crush and possible future husband Tony Stark and his Iron Man armor? Below is a list of cool guys and even cooler tech that plays a prominent role in romance plotlines.
1. Blake and the Vortex Watch from Courtney Milan’s Trade Me
Move over Apple Watch, Cyclone Technology has built a watch that features video chat, a timekeeping device and is a cool part of a Prince and the Pauper like story from Courtney Milan. Tina Chen and Blake Reynolds not only swap places, they literally swap lives where each has to walk a mile in the others’ shoes. What’s great about Trade Me, is that not only does it feature a diverse heroine and a hero drowning under his father’s pressure, but Tina and Blake really get a feel for one another becoming friends as well as romantic partners. I also appreciate the addition of Blake’s dad, Adam Reynolds, who is basically Tony Stark if Tony Stark had a kid, super protective, arrogant and overall having high ambitions for his son. It’s Adam who is at the same time a villain and a catalyst for change in Trade Me making the story fully-fleshed out and well-versed in the technology space.
