The Lust List: new tech we want this week

Love is in the air, but not because it’s Valentine’s Day.

Instead it’s due to all the great gadgets we’ve found this week – including Nike’s new Back to the Future II-style self-fastening shoes and a Lego set that put a few days of lockdown behind you.

And since tech never stands still, we’ve also got new cameras, headphones and smartphones to coo over.

Finally, considering you can’t step outside at the moment without putting yourself at risk of frostbite, we’ve picked up a pair of gloves that’ll work happily with your phone.

Read on to see the best bits of gadgetry we’ve come across this week.

Nike Go FlyEase

Nike’s intelligent trainer is a ‘hands-free’ shoe with a bi-stable hinge you can push open with your toes and close with your heel. That all means you’ll never need to bend down to put your trainers on or take them off ever again.

£104.95 (available later this year),

Honor GS Pro

Honor’s fitness-focused smartwatch is built to brave the elements and has a host of features to match, including GPS, a heart-rate monitor, a barometric altimeter, storage for 500 songs and plenty of stamina via its massive 25-day battery.

Sony Alpha A1

Fusing the high-res 50MP resolution of a landscape camera, the 30fps speed of sports camera and the 8K capabilities of a video camera, Sony’s remarkable mirrorless shooter is effectively three pro cameras crammed into one compact body.


Lumi by Pampers Smart Baby Monitor + Sleep System

This hi-tech crib cam-cum-digital nanny comes with a sensor that attaches to special nappies to monitor wetness and movement for sleep reports and even includes sleep coaching, which might help to mitigate those sleepless nights.


Focal Celestee

High-end looks with a price to match. If you’re the kind of audiophile who wants greater than average sound on the go encased in a stylish pair of cans, these closed-back over-ears promise stunning sound and craftsmanship.


Bang & Olufsen BeoSound Level

Those Danish luxury audio boffins have done it again, outing a modular music box that comes with a replaceable streaming module. That will guarantee the speaker’s longevity by ensuring connectivity and processing power, as well as features that keep up with the competition.


Lego Porsche 911

Lego’s vehicle collection continues to impress with its latest kit (pictured above) encouraging you to construct two versions of the iconic Porsche 911 from 1,458 bricks — the fixed-roof Turbo or the Targa, for the roof down.

£119.99 (available March 1),

Moshi Digits Touchscreen Gloves

If you loathe the thought of frosty digits while frolicking in the snow and telling your Instagram followers about it, these cosy conductive gloves will make sure your hands stay warm and your page updated.
