I am surely not the only person who used to dream of getting a metal detector for Christmas. Am I ? Hello……. Design As simple yet cunning as you could have hoped for when you read the name Treasure Seeking Sandals. Groovy black sandals which come in three sizes and have a metal detector invisibly built in (invisible that is apart from the black wire running down from the calf high unit to your foot). What do they do? They find valuable Roman treasures while you play beach volleyball. They uncover mountains of golden Egyptian...

Some phrases I have always wanted to say and possibly never will. “Follow that taxi” (to a stunned NY cabbie whose cab I have just entered in by shouldering out an overweight businessman) “Tell the Koreans it’s 4 billion or there’s no deal” (to be delivered into a mobile phone on a crowded train) “I’ll just nip off and make some ice lollies” Alright, so I’ve never actually harboured a life long dream of saying the last one, but the Zoku quick pop maker still sounds like a good idea. They look amazingly cool (sorry...

Do you like cycling? Would you like to occasionally take a rest from pedalling and let the bike take the strain? Are you environmentally friendly? Let’s read on and see if you are a candidate for the Gocycle electric bike. Design It’s no Sinclair C5, but if you are the shy, retiring type who doesn’t like to turn heads then you might prefer to avoid this attention-grabber. The white trim, 20 inch wheels and sporty design make it an attractive, one off design. It looks like a bike crossed with an ipod, the lines are curved but sleek...

So you want a smartphone and you would like to see how the Samsung Galaxy S shapes up against the competition? Well, let’s have a look at it then. Design This phone has a lovely screen; big, clear and extremely detailed. It really is the best feature of the model and more than makes up for a slightly insipid casing and button design. It weighs not much more than 100 grams. The Samsung Galaxy S is wafer thin (a hair’s breadth thicker than the current iPhone) and this, combined with the amazing screen display, makes it a great visual...

Apple Jam have made some nifty decals in the past and these PAC man themed removable stickers allow you to combine retro with ultra modern. The decals by Moscow are styled with the classic game of packman in mind with dots to eat all leading to the famous apple, which on the original game was worth a not to shabby 700 points. You also get the lives and other game stickers to make the back of your iPad look like a more authentic game. It’s probably worth mentioning that the stickers can be applied to any device so if you fancy sticking...

Do you find it difficult to get to sleep at night? If counting sheep, listening to low volume music and drinking a cup of hot milk don’t do it for you then you might want to try the Lightsleeper. Design A stylish, white lamp type of modern design means that it will look quite nice on your bedside table. It is small enough to be unobtrusive as well and may even prove a talking point should visitors frequent your boudoir – should you need it. Notable Specifications You can plug into your favourite wall socket or use AAA batteries....

We’ve all been there. Rummaging a through a stack of cheap, tacky postcards with images of the Eiffel Tower / paella / Tower Bridge etc. Quite often the problem with these generic postcards is that the image is far removed from what you are actually doing. Not any more, jetsetters. A new, personalised postcard service has been launched by our internet neighbours at eCards.co.uk. Now you can send pictures which genuinely reflect the fun / adventure /debauchery which you are having as you cut a swath through foreign lands.  How does...
