1. Sony LinkBuds

Everyone needs a good set of earbuds and Sony’s latest offering might just be the best on the market. 

LinkBuds feature a distinctive open-ring design that enables you to still hear everything around you.

This can be handy while walking around the city or on public transport.  

These earbuds offer surprisingly good sound quality for such a lightweight package, and just like Apple AirPods, they come with a neat battery case for charging on the go.

You’ll get about 5.5 hours of listening time out of the LinkBuds and a further 17 hours from the case.

2. DJI Action 2

DJI is best known for making drones but it’s now giving GoPro a run for its money with this cool modular action camera.

This tiny little camera can capture sharp 4K video and has an extensive range of accessories. 

You can pick up extra batteries, add-on screens, and a range of mounts that all attach magnetically. With its tiny form factor and waterproof design, this is a great choice for capturing outdoor activities.

You can buy the DJI Action 2 here on Amazon

3. Samsung The Premiere Ultra Short Throw Projector

Projectors offer the ultimate home movie experience but usually require a lot of space to get the best results. 

There are now several projectors available that can cast an image of over 100 inches while being placed just a few inches from the wall.

The Premiere from Samsung is a great example of this. With built-in wifi and all the popular streaming apps, it’s perfect for movie nights with the family. 

Samsung The Premiere is available on Amazon

4. Apple HomePod Mini

Smart speakers are becoming a must-have accessory for tech-filled homes and the HomePod Mini is the obvious choice for iPhone users. 

For such a small device, it can get surprisingly loud while playing your favourite tunes and is great for controlling your other smart home gadgets. 

Its size also means the Apple HomePod Mini is super portable.

5. Philips Hue lighting

Smart lighting is perfect for setting the mood and Philips Hue bulbs are one of the best options available. 

They are compatible with Siri, Alexa, and Google Assistant, allowing you to control all of your lights with your voice. 

You can even save your favourite settings so you can instantly have the perfect setup for working, cooking, or gaming. 

6. LG 48-inch C1 OLED

LG’s OLED TV‘s have been some of the best in the business for a while now, offering outstanding picture quality at a premium price. 

With the latest models, there is now a less expensive 48-inch size that is ideal for smaller rooms or even as a gaming monitor.

Whether you’re watching your favourites sports team or playing the latest video games, you won’t be disappointed with what this TV has to offer. 

7. Furbo dog camera

If you ever wonder what your pooch gets up to while you’re out of the house then this is the device for you. 

This Furbo dog camera lets you see what they’re up to, day or night with 4x zoom and infrared night vision.

Warning – it can be heartbreaking.

You can also remotely talk to your furry friend from your phone thanks to built-in microphones.

And if they’ve been well behaved you can also toss them a treat from the dispenser. 

8. Eufy RoboVac

Nobody wants to start vacuuming the carpet after a long day at work and with this Eufy RoboVac, you won’t have to.

This robotic vacuum cleaner can automatically navigate your home, or you can give it commands using an app or Amazon Alexa.

If this is the future, we’re on board.

9. Ember Mug 2

This is the perfect gift for that one coffee-obsessed friend that everyone has. 

This smart mug can keep your beverage hot thanks to the heating element in the base.

The Ember Mug 2 even links to an app and can send you a notification when it reaches your desired temperature.

It may be expensive, but it’s totally worth it for anyone that loves a nice hot coffee (or tea). 

10. Dyson Lightcycle Morph 

Dyson has a habit of making boring appliances cool by adding cutting edge tech. 

And they’ve done it again with this desk lamp. 

The Dyson Lightcycle Morph tracks your age, task, and time of day to adjust the intensity and temperature of the lamp.

Dyson says all of this can help reduce eye strain by mimicking the natural day-night cycle.
