6. Intel Edison

Intel takes a bite of the Raspberry Pi with its tiny Edison computer. It's the size of an SD card, but it includes a full Pentium-class PC. The potential here is amazing – it was demonstrated as a baby-monitoring device, but it's probably going to show up everywhere in the next few years.

7. Sperling Heavyweight Turntable L-1

A good ol'-fashioned turntable adds an interesting focus point to any home or office, as well as pumping out tunes with the distinctive warmth of analogue vinyl. Sperling's exquisite-looking Heavyweight turntable includes 2 arms to switch between old-fashioned and modern playback, and it looks absolutely glorious. The only downsides are the weight and price – $33,000 (£20,115) and 130 pounds, respectively.

8. Belkin WeMo

Internet-connected homes are apparently the vision of the future, and Belkin's WeMo products are a great place to start. They include LED-based bulbs (one for the lamp fans!), DC switches to turn dumb electronic devices into smart ones, and even a slow cooker. The beauty is that you can control them all from afar via an Android or iOS app, which could confuse potential burglars – or prepare them a delicious meal.

9. MOSS Robot Construction System

The MOSS Robotic Construction Kit raised a lot of money – and interest ¬– when it debuted on Kickstarter last year. It's a Lego-like system which allows you to build and program an army of machines, which we think will be perfect for threatening the boss when he reminds us of an encroaching deadline. You can pre-order the basic kit – a distance-sensing motorcycle – for just $149.95 (£91).

10. PrioVR

The Oculus Rift virtual-reality headset has inspired a new generation of gaming hardware enthusiasts to come up with new ways of interacting with make-believe worlds. PrioVR's Elysium-like exoskeleton detects your movements and translates them into games, so you can duck, dodge and roll your way through virtual warzones and, presumably, The Sims. The full-body version of the suit will go on sale for about $400 (£244).
