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.
It is a crime against humanity, at least those who cook, that Meike Harde's beautiful Quix handheld mixer only exists as a concept prototype. Because it somehow improves upon every one I've ever used with a design that's actually simpler.
The hugely-anticipated Nikon D800 might be hitting soon—like a week and a half soon. Nikon Rumors claims the impending mega-DSLR will shoot 36 megapixels, confirming earlier speculation. And it'll kick off on February 7th.
You already have a remote for controlling your TV, one of the focal points in your living room, so why not your fireplace as well? Kiwi company Escea asked the same question, but then went ahead and answered it with their new DX5100 model.
If you can ever have one thing where you used to have many things, you've accomplished good design. The Lexon Mini Totem does just that, curbing desktop sprawl with stackable items you can arrange how you want.
The EU’s just decided that you should be able to dump your old and busted electronics on shops, whether or not you bought them there and even if you’re not buying anything new from them. The retailers will have to fund the e-waste clean up, which means your dead iPod or stereo might be the straw that breaks the camel’s back for stores on the edge like Currys.
I love everything about these ninja-inspired throwing star sticky notes from ThinkGeek. Everything except the fact they're made from black paper, making them next to impossible to write on with anything other than a special marker.
When I was in college a microcassette recorder was the state-of-the-art way to record a lecture. But now, this novelty digital recorder that's only made to look like a microcassette makes me feel terribly old and dated.
USB thumb drives that are bigger than my hard drive circa 2001 are great. Waiting 5, 10, 15 minutes for the files to move to that USB 2.0 drive isn't so great. Now that USB 3.0 is becoming a common thing in laptops and devices, we can finally get faster flash drives as well.
Eating Mexican is inexpensive and convenient—just walk outside and find the nearest purveyor of Mexican food. What a world! But protecting your photography gear? That's usually neither. So wouldn't it make sense to turn your lensinto Mexican food?
Thunderbolt is fast. Actually, that's a simplistic view. It's incredibly fast (10Gbps bi-directional speeds!) and can handle multiple protocols. You can use Thunderbolt to attach a monitor, external drives, video capture devices, and hubs that support USB and Firewire. Real products are finally arriving, so we thought we'd make a list of the best ones.
In the grand tradition of Calvinball, this four player table tennis setup looks like it borrows elements from other games. Including ping pong and billiards; mashing them up into a new creation that's ready to destroy friendships.
Look, we've got enough problems as it is with walking corpses rising from the grave and trying to eat us. Last thing we need is someone crawling out of the ground a week after the fact just because they were really, really drunk. Our friends at Oobject have 12 of the best safety coffins money can buy.
The same folks who brought you the Pleo robot dinosaur have decided to put their expertise with automatons into designing a pillow that provides a good night's sleep, no matter what position your body ends up in.
Bring your home into the 23rd century without costly renovations with this motion sensitive Star Trek-inspired door chime from ThinkGeek. It's like being on the Enterprise, without having to worry about attacks from those pesky Klingons every other day.
Hidden away in a remote CES corridor, amidst a sea of gaudy phone cases and chargers, something catches my eye. What's a toilet doing here? Oh, you know, just revolutionizing how you use the bathroom. No biggie.
