We are New York City's curated tech and lifestyle store for the new, the iconic, and the most creative products on the market today.

NYC's Very Own

At AC Gears we begin our product selection with two questions: How well is the product designed and how well does it perform its intended function? With these two questions in mind we hand build an ever-evolving catalog consisted of high quality tech and lifestyle products.  Find out more on the premium and emerging products and brands we carry, their history, and manufacturing philosophy in every product page.  We are not just a point of purchase but a place where our customers come together to learn and know the things we use.

We are an authorized retailer for all of the brands we carry, both in-store and online and we do our best to answer any questions our customers may have.


Curation Criteria and Philosophy

Based on our motto "Live and Create Better" we curate our eclectic assortment of tech and lifestyle (techlifestyle) products based on Functionality, Design, and Creativity. From iconic brands established in the 19th century, to toys manufactured in Tokyo, to artisan design firms in Taiwan and crowdfunded projects from the Silicon Valley, our selection of techlifestyle products are integral to live and create a better and vibrant, modern life.


AC Gears started in late 2007 in New York City. After being on The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Wired, CNET, and years later, AC Gears is now appearing as one of the top 10 electronics stores in NYC (NYC.com), and one of the coolest places to shop (New York Magazine Critics' Pick).  Our store has been visited by many of our favorite movie stars, musicians, and artist patrons, as well as being used as a set for movie productions and TV shows.
