Favorite Worldbuilding Coffee Table Books

Here are four brilliant coffee table books Norm received and picked up over the holiday break that share a common theme: worldbuilding.

Tested: Our Favorite Smart Home Wi-Fi Plug

For this favorite things follow-up, Norm recommends a smart home plug that turns any appliance into a wi-fi connected device you can remotely power on and off, as well as automate.

Norm now has them set up for all of his office shelving and figure display lights!
