6. Sonos Play 1

Tiny speakers usually produce a tinny sound but that's not the case in Sonos' Play 1. It includes a 3.5-inch mid-woofer for proper bass and mid-range frequencies, as well as a tweeter for the high-end. The sound is crisp and room-filling for such a small device, and it's perfect for pumping out tunes while you're rendering.

7. PK K'1

Apparently the world's smallest USB 3.0 drive, this almost disturbingly tiny gizmo can be connected to your laptop to add 64GB of extra storage. The manufacturer reckons you can plug it in and forget about it, but thankfully it's supplied with a lanyard so you (hopefully) won't lose it down the back of the sofa when it's disconnected.

8. Boogie Board Jot

OK, this doesn't run the latest operating system or contain a 3D processor, but the Boogie Board Jot could come in handy for quick doodles and sketches. It contains a pressure-sensitive and shatter-proof LCD screen, and you can write and draw on it with your finger or a stylus. It may be astonishingly low-tech, but it's only £20.

9. Philips Living Color Bloom

As the UK faces its dreariest winter to date (probably) we could do with a touch of bright colour to liven up our offices. Philips' Living Colour Bloom is essentially a glorified lamp, with the benefit that you can choose from 16 million colours. If that's not techy enough you can link to your phone to choose the hue.

10. Logitech Ultrathin Touch Mouse

Trackpads are great, but when you need finer control (or to shoot things in an FPS) you can't beat a mouse. Logitech's Ultrathin Touch Mouse is designed to compliment MacBooks, but it will work with Windows PCs, and it includes multitouch features and Bluetooth connectivity.
