6. Phantom 2 Vision

Another flying camera - but this one's a bit more technologically-augmented. The Phantom 2 Vision is essentially a personal drone with a built-in video camera, so you can get swooping aerial shots without the expense of hiring a helicopter. You will still have to spend £849.95 on it, though.

7. Coburns

Not to be confused with the cigars, these Coburns are nifty little stands for your iPad - and probably a bit better for your health. The makers reckon you can use them in a variety of ways to prop up your techslab, and they come in two flavours of wood: light and dark. It's only $19 for a pair via the makers' Kickstarter page.

8. Littlebits Korg Synth Kit

We love making wacky sounds in our spare time, and the Littlebits Korg Synth Kit ($159) looks like it'll help us with our hobbies, even if the neighbours will hate us forever. It consists of lots of little modular bits which can be arranged in different ways to produce unique sounds.

9. Nimbus Smart Dashboard

The Nimbus Smart Dashboard's ($129.95) programmable dials link to your Smartphone so you can keep up-to-date on stocks, emails, the weather and even - gasp - the time. We know you could just get that information from looking at your phone, but we rather like the way it looks and works, and it's great for totalitarian social media bosses.

10. Star Wars Mood Lights

We had to put a lamp in. This one's a Darth Vader one. It lights up, just like Darth Vader's head in one of the Star Wars movies. No, hang on, that never happened. It's battery-powered, just like Darth Vader. No, hang on, that's not true either. Well maybe a bit. Anyway, it's £15 for a small one and £50 for a big one.
