The Right Stuff
Wipe that smarmy smirk off a selfie-stick owner with the AirSelfie. Basically your own personal drone controlled from your smartphone for taking pictures of you and yours. It’s a damn sight more impressive than a plastic stick to hold your phone – and just think of the cool pics you can take when travelling.
HIGHWAY TO HELIOS
Despite the very functional use and objective behind the creation of the Helios designer laptop backpack, we think that the design is proper ‘jaw-to-the-floor’ stunning that sets it apart from other competitors. Wouldn’t look out of place on the catwalk…or our office desk.
ALL MY FRIENDS KNOW THE VERVERIDER
Whilst wireless earbuds are fast becoming the norm, there are still massive disparities in quality from one to the other. However the Motorola VerveRider doesn’t just perform in terms of sound-quality – they’re easily the comfiest earphones on the market too.
SUMMER OF SAM(SUNG)
The speed, memory, GB capacity, camera and price of smartphones evolve on a daily rate. For their new S8, Samsung rethought every part of the phone's layout to break through the confines of the smartphone screen so that all you see is pure content and no bezel. It's the biggest, most immersive screen on a Galaxy smartphone of this size – and our favourite.
Price: From £37 a month (with upfront cost)
Hidden beneath Moshi’s elegant Wireless Spatia Speaker is a spectrum of innovative technologies that deliver a powerful, yet balanced sound. And whilst the sound is the most important element in a speaker, we can’t help liking this because it looks so goddam gorgeous too.
IN CASE OF FIRE…
For too long the humble Amazon Firestick has been the poor relation of the Prime family – but not for much longer. Amazon’s highly coveted ‘Alexa’ voice recognition technology is now available with the USB stick version of the TV on-demand service. Just don’t expect it to understand North Walian.
MAKE A DASH FOR IT
Dashcams are big business these days and can save the user a few quid with the insurer if used properly. Nextbase has just launched the 412GW, which also includes in-built Wi-Fi – allowing motorists to instantly upload footage to their social media channels, insurer or even the police.
The Braun Series-3 Shaver doesn’t claim to reinvent the wheel, it simply does what you expect from a quality electric shaver – whilst being able to take it into the shower…saving you some precious minutes in the morning before work.
