2016 BMW 7 Series – 60 MPG, carbon-fibre, laser light luxury! [Review]

When you hear of BMW’s 7 Series model, what do you think of? Pampered rear passengers? Or, perhaps the car from the James Bond film Tomorrow Never Dies?  In that movie, a 7 Series was famously used to avoid the bad guys by being driven remotely via mobile phone.  Fast forward to 2016 and in both cases you could well be talking about this latest version of BMW’s flagship.

Cheerson CX-33 Sexcopter – fun mini drone, 25 mins fly time, and 720p camera [Review]

Here is our prediction. Quadcopters (or drones if you like) will be getting smaller and smaller, as the technology improves and government laws start to restrict hobby classifications. This Cheerson CX-33 for example, is a small craft with an unusual 6 prop design, which has a great flight time and some nice video features. We ran it through some tests recently to see how it performs.

Shinecon VR Glasses – turn your iPhone, Android or Windows phone into a 3D viewer and game console [Review]

It looks like VR is still trying to break through, especially now that the Oculus Rift is starting to emerge into the daylight for real. Almost. The idea of these budget products is to insert your smartphone, and use any specially created app or game to enjoy ‘immersive’, virtual reality views by turning your head and such. The question is, are they improving at all? The answer is a qualified yes.

But in either case, it’s definitely worthwhile having some sort of evidence if you ever suffer from a traffic related event. The new generation of car cameras offer this peace of mind, and the really good bit is they don’t cost the earth. Nor do they falter when it comes to bad lighting conditions.

2016 BMW 3 Series – 74 mpg, stylish frugal thrills [Review]

As parties go, visiting the Rioja region of Spain to celebrate the 40th birthday of BMW’s 3 Series is a fine way to start. The first model launched back in 1975, the same time incidentally as new tech upstart called Microsoft. This revised sixth-generation car is the result of BMW sending its best Bavarian boffins to tinker and improve the 3 Series after it came in for some serious competition from Jaguar’s new XE. So was the work worth it?…
