Between Black Friday, Christmas and the January sales, you might think you’ve seen all the gadget hype you’re ever going to this past few months, but that’s where you’re wrong. Those tech boffins have been hard at work in the lab making ever more desirable devices for us to lust over for the rest of the year. Here’s five that look set to be on our most wanted list.
ShareRoller is a simple concept, a handy little device that clips on to any push bike, fold bike, roadster or even scooter, turning it from a person-powered locomotive to an electric one, at the flip of a switch. The device is roughly the size of a lunchbox and contains a stored charge which, in turn, drives the wheels on the vehicle if you’re going uphill, entering a rough patch, or simply feeling lazy.
If your problems are less external than internal, then what better way to sort your life out than with an organizational and focus-building app that keeps you away from the distractions and pitfalls of the modern world? BuildFocus is designed to keep even the most wayward brain engaged and on point.
The Ricoh Theta S is a small, lightweight full res HD camera that can shoot panoramic and fast-moving video and imagery in a durable, lightweight and fairly pretty design. It can also be controlled remotely from your phone and features full app support and network sharing capabilities.
The Yoga lap-tablet series has already turned heads as a major player in the tablet/laptop convertible market, but this new model has another stunning app in its locker, an in-built 70in projector that turns any modestly sized room into a pretty functional home cinema. Perfect after a long day clambering up hills on your electric bike.
