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.

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
