1. Leica Sofort Instant Camera
The demise of Polaroid left many instant film lovers and the photographically inclined feeling pretty bereft. In a world of digital selfies and Snapchats, having a photograph you could hold instantly – and only take one of – was a rare luxury. Now Leica has got in on the act, with a Fuji instant film fuelled, retro-inspired, superb resolution instant camera. Go on, you know you’re tempted…
2. Amazon Echo
Forget Siri, it’s time to meet Alexa. Amazon’s smart little tool can play music, answer questions, tell you the time, order you a cab, give you a wakeup call, turn up your heating, keep a shopping list and much more besides. You might feel a little self-conscious at first, but soon you’ll be wondering how you lived without her.
3. Playstation VR
Do you appreciate some serious play time? Playstation VR is surprisingly affordable and probably going to blow your mind. This headset is claimed to offer one of the most immersive gaming experiences currently available and the critics seriously rate it. This bad boy can trick your brain into experiencing vertigo, take you to a whole new world and pretty much enthral you. Put it on and get totally transported.
