This weekend’s viral load was significantly boosted by the appearance of Trump senior advisor Stephen Miller on a current affairs show. No-one knows what he said because: What’s that on his normally-bald head? For those who have difficulty seeing what’s wrong there, I have helpfully removed all the other horrible, weirdly distracting elements of his […]
For the true audio enthusiast, there’s a lot of difference between putting on some songs “for background music” and a true listening experience. For the latter, there’s nothing like a pair of sturdy headphones and the powerful speakers that come with them. And the wireless variety doesn’t get much more powerful than the TREBLAB Z2 […]

Everybody’s flown a paper airplane. But what if you could fly on a paper airplane? Until we invent shrink-ray technology, the PowerUp X FPV Video Paper Airplane Kit will have to do – but it’s as fun as that sounds and more. The original version of this creative toy added drone tech to the old, […]
