The Lust List: new tech we want this week

Another week, more of the same. Lockdown may be hitting us hard but at least the gadgetry hasn’t dried up.

There’s plenty of tech out there to make the homelife both more productive and a bit more of a laugh.

Microsoft’s latest hybrid will keep you working away from your kitchen table and when it’s time to clock off, there are some retro games to enjoy.

And since we know you can’t get down to your favorite pizzeria until Covid is over, we’ve found a way to bring the pizzeria to you. Life’s easier to get through with a slice of piping hot pizza in your hand.

These are the best gadgets that have caught our eye this week.

Microsoft Surface Pro 7+

This adorable miniature flyer wants to be your personal paparazzo, on hand to capture airborne 12-megapixel selfies, group pics and HD video, whether it’s in AutoFly autonomous mode or being bossed about via gesture control.

Whether you’re a dab hand at making deliciously doughy cheese-and-tomato covered discs or are simply the takeaway type, this countertop cooker mimics brick-oven heat by firing up to 400C for ‘wood-fired’ style pizza at home.


Nasa Photo Viewer

As far as tech goes, this thing is about as technological as a cereal box. But for those old enough to remember, it’ll be sure to evoke memories of a time when looking at pictures didn’t involve social media or a smartphone.


Blaze Evercade

Ooozing serious amounts of back-inthe-day charm, this colourful console keeps it old-school by offering retro gaming in wonderfully nostalgic form.

We’re talking collectible cartridges and over 100 games from the likes of gaming favourites Namco and Atari.
