Eyeshot HD Action Cam With Watch Remote Control – cool GoPro clone comes with live preview on your wrist [Review]

Action cameras are all the rage nowadays, because…well everyone of us leads such exciting lives. Just take a look at the YouTube videos and you’ll see us diving off mountains, skiing down impossible slopes and aqua-sailing to impressive heights. We did all that just last weekend in fact. That’s why we need super high resolution cameras to capture it all.

Kingston Data Traveler Micro Duo 16GB – the perfect keychain data mover for phones [Review]

It’s all very well and good carrying around large amounts of data on our mobile phones, but the problem comes when we want to transfer it easily and quickly between phones, computers and other devices. Small files are fine, but when it comes to huge video files, or even lots of images or music tracks, it can be a real pain. And don’t even start us off about the slow speed of Bluetooth.

The Wearable Technology Show 2014 – a sneak preview of the current state of the art in wearable gadgets [Show Report]

The world’s first wearable technology show opened its doors to attendees this week, and we took a trip down there to video what was going on. For those just back from Mars, wearables are the latest ‘thing’ to hit the technology world. The idea is it covers any kind of technology that we wear, as opposed to carry around, so smart glasses, smart watches, smart jackets, shoes. But not phones or tablets etc. You get the picture.

Phantom 2 Vision – amazing flying camera turns the world into an aerial adventure [Review]

When the history books come to be written about the rise and rise of the quadcopter, we suspect that one of the names which will be high on the list will be that of DJI, makers of the Phantom 2 Vision ‘flying camera’. The company has managed to single handedly carve out a new segment in the ‘prosumer’ gadget world, the personal camera drone. And they’ve done it with style.

iPazz Port – Android Internet entertainment add-on for your TV is one of the best budget models so far [Review]

There are a lot of Android computers on the market which upgrade your television to add Internet and smart app functionality, but they’re mostly limited in one way or another, either because they’re too small – like the dongles we’ve reviewed in the past – or too expensive. But we’ve found one which manages to bridge the gap nicely, and it’s got a great feature set too.

Venstar Childproof Android 7 Inch Tablet – cute $59 password protected tablet for the kids [Review]

We don’t know who started it, but the idea that kids are allowed to stroll up and steal mommy and daddy’s super expensive smartphone or tablet computer for a game of sticky bun fightz or whatever has got to stop. Right? It’s bad enough cleaning the goo off the screen later, let alone wondering whether it’s going to hit the floor soon with all your work contacts on it. But there is a solution.

2014 BMW 435i M Sport Convertible – our road test: 6 countries, 3000 kms, 3.5 days [Review]

So what would you do if BMW called up and offered to lend you a £45,000 sports car for a few days to drive where you wanted in Europe as a test? Yep, that’s what we figured, so we said no and went back to our knitting. Yeah right. Long and short, five days later we found ourselves on a flight to Malaga airport in Southern Spain, and six days later they handed over a key fob to a gleaming…

Dimika 1080 HD Action Cam – ultra versatile HD cam delivers great video as an action cam, security cam, webcam, car DVR and more [Review]

There are plenty of action cams around, because it seems that people love taking video of their adventures. Which is great if you’re in sunny California, but not so useful if you’re stuck somewhere like rainy Leeds. But now there’s a way to use your action cam in the summer, and convert it into something else, including a car DVR, during the rest of the time.

Blue is an established name in the recording device market, having produced a range of top class microphones and accessories for both studio and desktop computer use.

The Battery Price Scam – Hint: We’re Probably Being Ripped Off! [In-Depth Test]

We’ve just finished conducting some tests on a range of different AAA alkaline battery brands to find out which are worth the price and which aren’t. With some very surprising results! Everyone buys household batteries, right? But most times we just buy what the marketing tells us to buy, without having a clue which batteries are actually the best value for money.

Volkswagen e-up! – first look at the new electric car which proves that small can indeed be beautiful…and silent [Review]

There’s no question that the electric car momentum has now well and truly started gathering pace, with the latest entrant to the market coming from the German giant with two letters as a logo. The Volkswagen e-up! (don’t forget the exclamation mark, Mark!) is nowhere near as revolutionary as the one we were expecting, but it’s still pretty cool, and actually breaks new ground in at least one specific piece of tech.
