Gadgets – those glorious pieces of hardware which we covet so much. From mobile phones to laptops, cameras to kitchen tools, we cover ‘em here on Giz UK. Check this hub-page for all manner of news about these bank account-rinsing objects of desire.
Rolex is known for its industrial-strength Submariner dive watches that can take more of a licking than a Timex. But Tudor, Rolex's baby brother, might steal its thunder with a watch that tightens around a diver's wrist the deeper they go.
Who in their right mind would want to interact with babies? They're dumb, they leak, they smell (on account of the leakage), and for all that noise, babies can't even give you a hint as to what set them off. But the new Exmobaby sensor suit just might.
I got a bit excited when I saw that the awesome folding UK plug concept had actually made it into production – so excited, I plunked down my pre-order forthwith. Now it’s here, so what’s it actually like?
Freedom of speech is a fundamental part of western culture. A lot of protestors in many countries, would stare down the barrel of a gun to defend it. Unless that gun happens to be this insane SpeechJammer device that renders you incapable of forming coherent sentences.
As an adult I've grown to dislike the dry, cold winter months -- we're even under a drought warning right now -- but after gazing upon the serene beauty of this simple bottle-shaped humidifier, I no longer hate it. In fact, I'm not sure if I'll ever be able to hate again.
The electrical plug we have here in Britain is a bit of a beast. Yes it’s pretty safe, but does it have to be so freaking big? No it doesn’t, as proved by this concept design from back in 2009.

Taking inspiration from Lego, Minecraft, and good old-fashioned building blocks, the 8-Bit Builder goes slightly against his namesake with this 16-bit case mod honoring Hyrule's most-diminutive hero. But seriously, why is it a kid who's always saving the day?
Powered skateboards have been around since the early 90's, but they've always seemed to require extra components — from handheld throttles to Microsoft Kinect-based sensor arrays — that could never quite capture the feel of a conventional deck. The ZBoard, with an electric drivetrain and weight-sensor control system, could be the first to actually pull it off.
I prefer a clutter free kitchen, which means everything has to be hidden away, including wire whisks which are notoriously selfish at hoarding drawer space. At least until I replace mine with Ding3000's brilliantly simple compact collapsing Beater.
We’ve all been there. You just have to have that piece of tech right now, or you desperately need a new cable to hook up your monster sound system pre-party. But where do you get it if you just can’t be arsed to leave the house? Amazon’s no good, that takes a day, how about Maplin? It’s touting a fast new 90-minute delivery to the home service from the moment you click your mouse.
Have you ever taken pictures at the zoo? It's an exercise in futility. Your puny camera strains to see far-away beasts with their backs turned. Lame. But what if you could get them to come right up to you?
