Parrot AR Drone Elite Edition

Google carved out a niche for its Nexus brand of smartphones and tablets by offering a remarkable amount of technology and features for very little money. Now it’s got our attention, however, prices have risen noticeably. Still, the new Nexus 9 tablet remains more keenly priced than its fruity competition and it’s got some high-end tech squeezed into its svelte frame. It’s squarer than many tablets, with a 4:3 display (8.9-inches in size) that’s particularly useful for browsing web pages plus it also features the very latest version of Android.
£319, Google Play

 

LG 42UB820V Smart 4k Ultra HD 42″ LED TV

As well as amazing pictures, this set from LG also comes with a 'magic' remote

This 42-inch telly from LG will delight your eyes with pin-sharp Ultra-HD 4K images, should you be able to find a source that will output them. It’s true that, for the moment, ultra hi-def is mainly a bit of handy futureproofing. However, this set can also upscale standard HD pictures, so you get the best of both worlds. It’s a smart TV as well, so hooking it up to your net connection gives you access to all kinds of useful apps, including iPlayer. Plus you get a ‘magic remote’ making it possible to control your TV with a wave of your hand – or even with your voice.
£599.95, John Lewis
