The Best 10 Cool Electronic Gadgets
1. Sony FX3
Sony’s FX3 is the most miniature, cheapest cinema camera the company has ever made. It’s built for filmmakers rather than photographers. It can handle recording ultra HD video at 120fps for long periods.
It comes bundled with a handle that’s ideal for shooting from low angles. And it adds extra sockets for plugging in different audio inputs. There’s also in-body image stabilisation for when you’re “running and gunning”.
The camera will also play nice with Sony’s yet-to-be-released Airspeak drone. At 715g, it’s a bit too bulky to fit in your pocket, but it’s light enough and small enough to take wherever you go. Keep an eye out for it in the hands of your favourite YouTuber soon.
2. Gouthwaite Backpack 23L
The brand behind this roll-top bag is called Bear, and its founders have a mission: to get more people outside to talk about their mental health.
Sales from each bag will be funding free outdoor workshops from fly fishing to foraging to off-road cycling. Shoppers have to sign up for their mailing list to find out when courses start.
In the meantime, while we’re all stuck mostly indoors, Bear will donate 10 per cent of sales to The Outward Bound Trust.
On top of that, the company is carbon negative, relying on recyclable, fossil-fuel-free materials where possible and carbon-offsetting the rest.
The actual bags are pretty smart too. There’s a quick-release buckle holding the top together, which is the same one used by the rescue services.
The waxed canvas is made in Scotland without PFCs (the chemicals typically used in waterproof coatings) can wash off materials and end up in waterways.
3. Xbox Wireless Headset
The new official gaming headset for the Xbox Series X and S packs in many features without costing a small fortune. And for once, it won’t make you look like an extra in a Tron film.
The cans are kitted out with the latest surround sound (Windows Sonic, Dolby Atmos and DTS) so that you can hear those footsteps creeping up behind you.
There’s an intelligent, retractable microphone inside, which can isolate your speech and tune down background noise.
Plus, It offers an auto-mute option, which turns off the mic when you’re done speaking: no more accidental heavy breathing over comms.
We’ll have to reserve full judgement until we can get a pair on our ears, but it looks like this could be the intelligent way to bring immersive sound to your Xbox.
4. Transparent Speakers
Apart from public toilets, few things in life aren’t made better by being see-through. Case in point, this speaker replaces its housing with tempered glass.
Its creator, the Swedish design studio Transparent, says that its speakers use durable, recyclable materials. Each of the devices can use alone as a Bluetooth speaker, paired together as a stereo sound system, or plugged into existing audio equipment.
It’s upgradeable, too, with a compartment at the rear that can hold and power various modules – a voice assistant, for example, or new wireless tech.
5. Xiaomi Mi Air Charge
It’s early days, but Xiaomi has shown off a demo of a product it’s planning to put on sale this year.
It’s called Mi Air Charge technology, and it uses 144 micro-antennae to transfer energy to your phone via a narrow wave beam.
According to Xiaomi’s demo, you’d be able to walk into a room, and your phone would start charging, even if an object were in the way. Eventually, Xiaomi says it could charge multiple devices at once in the room it’s Sat.
It’s tech we’ve seen presented at conferences before but never so close to an actual final product.
6. POC Omne Eternal
Sat beneath the helmet’s surface a light-harvesting material call Powerfoyle, which converts solar energy into electricity.
After cycling to work in the morning, leave the POC Omne Eternal by a sunny window to charge. And by evening, you should have a fully juiced red light on the back of the helmet.
Bung the helmet on, and the sensors inside turn the light on too. The back-facing light isn’t bright enough to warrant binning those bike lights you keep forgetting to charge. But it will improve your visibility to others.
7. Helly Hansen Odin Minimalist Infinity Jacket
Conventionally speaking, waterproof coats spray with a water-repellent chemical. It makes rain bead up and rolls off the skin instead of soaking in.
The coating also means the material beneath it can be breathable, stopping from you getting too hot underneath.
Unfortunately, those chemicals have a habit of washing off, shortening the coat’s life and polluting the environment.
Helly Hansen uses a new kind of material with small enough pores to keep water from coming in but lets hot vapour (sweat) out.
This potentially means the coat could stay waterproof for its entire life, with no need for extra coatings or the pollution that comes with the process.
8. Carol Exercise Bike
“Get fit and healthy in 26 minutes a week.” That’s the bold claim made by the creators of this exercise bike.
Which combines high-intensity training with an algorithm that learns your fitness level and creates a training regime.
The bike builds on the idea that energetic bursts of exercise are effective at making you healthier.
Research seems to support this idea, with several studies showing that periods of high-energy activity interspersed with more sedate intervals.
It seems to push your body out of its comfort zone, improving heart health, lung capacity, fat-burning potential and more.
If you’re serious about training, the bike plugs into the growing market of online classes, including Peloton Digital and Apple Fitness+.
9. Vaonis Vespera Smart Telescope
The notion of a telescope without an eyepiece to look through could inspire a few strongly worded letters from our readers.
Still, we can’t help but lust after this beautiful new telescope from Italian company Vanos (even if it does cost around £1,300).
The Vespera takes the work out of stargazing. The scope takes the images hitting its sensors and sends a live-view to your smartphone or tablet via Wi-Fi.
This means you can set up the telescope outside (it has a four-hour battery life), jump under the covers and tour the Universe.
The app presents a list of cosmic points of interest to point the telescope towards, like a star’s birth, the motors. And GPS aboard the telescope points the lens in the right direction.
From there, you can watch the view live, take stacks of photos to reveal more detail and share what you’re seeing with friends.
You can even schedule observations if you want to capture something while you’re asleep. Right now, you’ll have to wait until 2022 to get your hands on a ‘scope.
But it’s a bigger sibling, the Stellina, that is on sale now.
10. Sonos Arc soundbar
Offering up a hard-to-beat balance of features, design, ease of use and performance, the Sonos Arc, the company’s first Atmos soundbar, is an easy product to love.
There are very few soundbars out there that do so much so well. It’s our pick for the best electronic gadgets is a soundbar.
No matter what you’re watching, it sounds superb. There’s a stunning clarity to dialogue, a fullness to bass and stacks of detail across the frequency range.
But when you listen to an Atmos soundtrack, you hear the added breadth and depth you’d expect from a more immersive 3D soundstage.
With sound effects that place precisely around and above you, delivered by the Arc’s carefully angled drivers.
Of course, it’ll fit into a broader Sonos multi-room system if you have other Sonos speakers. It acts as a great sound system on its own for crisp, expressive music playback.
Its size means you’ll probably want a 55-inch TV or more extensive, though, as it’ll dwarf anything smaller.
