Sketch Stylus

This is an affordable, gem of a gadget from SuckUK. At first glance, the Sketch Stylus looks like a regular pencil... yet, on closer inspection, you'll see that its eraser is in fact a stylus for touch-screen, tablet devices. Perfect for traditional and digital doodles on the go. Genius! Sketch Stylus


Wacom Cintiq Companion and Companion Hybrid

The Cintiq Companion and Companion Hybrid are the latest models to join the Wacom family. The Companion is a mobile Cintiq, running on Windows 8 with all the features you'd expect from this professional creative display. Meanwhile, the Companion Hybrid is an Android offering, combining a full-featured 13-inch Cintiq display with an Android tablet. Wacom Cintiq Companion and Companion Hybrid


Sennheiser Momentum

Sennheiser's Momentum on-ear headphones combine style with great quality audio. Shut out studio noise with impressive, full stereo sound from its Alcantara-covered cups - this luxurious fabric is normally more at home in an Audi interior than on headphones, but it's a feature that provides some serious comfort while you're wearing them.

Isis One

The Isis One is a desktop 3D printer manufactured and designed by Isis3D. The company describes its creation as a "workhorse" that's "the best RepRap yet", offering a professional print quality at super-fast speeds and a reasonable price. The Isis One prints on a 300 x 300mm glass surface with no warping and it ships with KISSlicer software as standard. What's more, its LCD smart controller means it's capable of standalone printing from an SD card. Isis One


Maker Bot Digitizer

The future is finally here! Well, it's due mid-October. Maker Bot's spinning 3D scanner is available to pre-order now. The Digitizer works by scanning real-life objects with its camera and two lasers, enabling its users to create a 3D digital file in minutes. These files can then be printed out as models using a choice of desktop 3D printers. Maker Bot Digitizer
