Does your fat, balding dad air-drum like Keith Moon? Thought so. Well, this might be perfect. It’s a set of sensors which attach to drumsticks and your feet, and converts any surface into a fully-fledged kit. Cymbals, snares, bass drums etc are allocated through an app. Senstroke isn’t just a gimmick, though, as it is also a serious learning tool, thanks to dedicated tutorials, and routines can be recorded for analysis.
The Yoga Tab 3 is an Android tablet, but with its sleek, pin-sharp Full High Definition screen, and dual JBL speakers, it is best used as a portal for streaming content. The rounded spine and built-in stand make it brilliantly versatile for use in the kitchen, living room, or as an e-reader, and the 8MP camera is more than enough for Skype or Zoom. Oh, and it has Google Assistant too.
Thankfully, we haven’t tested this to its fullest, as it’s an airbag to protect a cyclist’s head. Built to be eight times safer than a helmet, it’s a remarkable device which monitors your movement, and instantly deploys should you get knocked over. In terms of comfort, it takes a little getting used to (it’s worn like a scarf), and it’s yet another device that’s needs to be kept charged, but should it ever be used it you’ll be relieved you had it.
