Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet Review: Hardware Triumph, Software Facepalm

Last year, the original Xperia Z Tablet was one of our absolute favourite tablets. It was so wonderfully thin and light, plus waterproof? Fantastic.

DJI Phantom 2 Vision+ Review: Buttery Smooth Quadcopter Video

DJI has been making remote-control quadcopters for years. Originally, you had to strap your GoPro to it, but last year DJI introduced the Phantom 2 Vision, which had its own integrated camera system.

A Day at Muscle Beach with the World's Strongest Man

The tyres weigh 150 kilos, but they lift as easily as hula hoops in the hands of this Nordic god. In a puff of chalk, he hugs the rubber rings and scurries quickly through the sand.

Razor Crazy Cart Review: Even More Fun Than it Looks

When I was a kid, the Big Wheel endgame was to pedal down the driveway, then peel out in a Mario Kart-esque sliding turn. That typically meant more grazed chins and elbows than glory. Razor's Crazy Cart, though, lets me drift to my heart's content. You want fun? This thing's got fun. Read More >>
