Surely it makes sense that the tech we use to track our runs should be on our feet, not strapped to our arms, so it was only a matter of time before this tech made its way into our running shoes. The Under Amour HOVR Infinite Running Shoes come with a sensor imbedded into the shoe that digitally connects your feet to your phone. Fear not - this doesn’t have an impact on the weight or comfort of the shoe. It can be synced after your run, letting you take to the streets whilst leaving your phone at home (try it, you will feel liberated).
Throw on some Lycra and back comb your hair; we are heading back to the 1981 when Dave Theurer and Atari combined to create Tempest. This iconic arcade game came along and smashed a few boundaries with a bunch of firsts. This game was one of the first games that used Atari's Colour-QuadraScan vector display technology. It allowed players to choose their starting level via the Atari "SkillStep" system, and was also the first system that allowed you to increase the maximum starting level depending on the player's performance in the previous game.

Have you ever been in the situation were you are curled up in bed thinking, “Jeez, I’m freezing,” and then have the internal battle as to whether or not you can face crawling out from underneath the duvet to put the heating on, or to ignore the fact you can’t feel your feet and hopefully fall asleep? Wouldn’t it be better if you could just poke one hand out of your cocoon, open an app and turn the heat on? Well, yes, of course it would. The Wiser Multi Zone Kit 1 does just that.
We have had a few sunny days in the UK recently, which has prompted us to suddenly remember that there is an uncovered area attached to the property that we haven’t visited for the last six months. We like to call it our garden, but nature has been trying to claim it back as one of its own ever since we moved in. The only way to fight back against mother nature and her unrelenting army of flora is with good quality gardening tools. Thankfully, Stihl have a wide range to tackle a variety of garden dramas.

With a name like PIQ Robot, you might think of a large robotic caddy following you around the green telling you what to do and holding your drinks, but although this would be awesome, it wouldn’t be convenient to pack away in the boot of your car. Thankfully, this robot is teeny tiny and sits on your glove (sadly, it won’t hold your drinks).
