They came from Stagsden! This is the catch cry of 3 Legged Thing, an innovative company based out of a chicken shed on a mission to [tripod] world domination within 5 years (from January 2011). You would imagine how gutted I was when my Eddie was not presented to me by an alien mech or a representative yelling the company war cry brandishing it high over his head, it was a much more muted affair but over a good cup of coffee.

It is no big secret that I am a fan of the thinkTankPhoto Retrospective bags. I have a Retro 20 which I use as an all-round camera bag and a Retro 50 for when I need to carry all the camera gear that I own. For a while the Retro 50 was repurposed as a laptop bag for work. Under the threat of a fate worse than death for non-disclosure - (such as permanent deprivation from coffee), I was given a Retrospective Laptop Case 15L to road test weeks before the official launch.
Back pain is one of the most common and disabling pains. That is no surprise given our sedentary lifestyle but what to do when it hits you? If you can afford the time off, staying in bed might give some relief but even then the pain is ever present.
For most people the use of TENS devices will help considerably to alleviate the pain and today we are reviewing one of the best designed and most practical of these units: the WiTouch Pro from Hollywog. Spoiler alert: it's a brilliant device!
For a few years now I have been hoping that wireless charging will become commonplace. Certainly the technology has been available, I remember reviewing such a system back in 2010. But it seems we are still on the cusp of the technology going truly mainstream with more devices starting to support wireless charging natively. Wireless chargers too, are becoming increasingly available at a reasonable cost. DigitalReviews has the pleasure of reviewing the Qi Universal Wireless Charging Plate courtesy of MobileZap.

In 2012 we took a look at B&R's Ausrack Floor OnyX 19" rack cabinet and how it could help the modern technophile store their rampant computer gear. Today we are looking at the Ausrack Floor Onyx's smaller sibling, the Ausrack Wall OnyX.

There is no denying it: there will be a smart watch in your future!
There are dozens of manufacturers having something up their sleeves, literally. We have already seen the likes of Samsung Gear, Garmin, and Pebble.
We also had a look at the COOKOO connected watch which was rather disappointing as to its functionality both as a watch and regards its additional features.
And so was the Sony SmartWatch in its original version.
Does the SmartWatch 2 fare any better?
One of the fastest developments of recent years has to be drone technology. Sure, the big stuff is driven by the military and surveillance needs but the consumer/prosumer market for camera-equipped UAVs is flourishing as never before.
I hasn't been all that long since we test flew the DraganFlyer SAVS which had essentially the same capabilities as the new DJI Phantom 2 Vision but looked primitive and was a lot harder to fly. And much more expensive.
DJI has re-invented the market for small but extremely capable yet easy to handle aerial platforms. The original Phantom was a huge success and garnered a large following. Within a year DJI produced not only an upgrade but now also a totally new line of Phantoms. The DJI Phantom 2 Vision is the one with the integrated camera which is the one we will test over the coming weeks. We look forward to showing off its considerable capabilities in a series of reviews.
