The Lust List: New tech we want

Kano Computer Kit Touch

This build-your-own computer kit from Kano may have a Raspberry Pi at its core but it’s the 10.1in HD touchscreen that steals centre stage. Brightly coloured, easy to assemble, great for six-year olds and above. £279.99, kano.me

Booq Shock Pro

Think of this premium backpack as an armoured guard for your gear. Water-repelling ballistic nylon forms the first line of defence, accompanied by waterproof zippers, HD foam-lined laptop hideout and even a dry compartment for your gym gear. £150, booqbags.com

HP Tango X

HP claims the Tango is the world’s first smart home printer and with its chic understated look, voice activation and mobile-first brains, who are we to argue? Linen and cork covers on the Tango X edition further soften the visuals. From £129 (available later this month), currys.co.uk

Coravin Model Eleven

This wine preservation device — which inserts a needle into the bottle, without removing the cork — features a connected app that tells you how much to pour and recommends accompanying food, music and even films. £899, coravin.co.uk

Now TV Smart Box with 4K and Voice Search

This box of delights streams smooth 4K HDR content from more than 50 services, including Sky, iPlayer, YouTube and now Netflix. The Roku-powered Smart Box adds voice search, live pause and a night mode that keeps the lid on loud sounds. From £45.99, nowtv.com

Jaybird Tarah

Sweat all you like with these cord-free waterproof sports headphones from Jaybird. Swappable silicone gels keep the minimalist Bluetooth buds safe and snug, while stamina is no problem as it has a six-hour run time on a single charge. £89.99, jaybirdsport.com

Fujifilm Instax Square SQ20

The newest instant in Fujifilm’s retro-tastic range marries digital with analogue, letting you select and edit images on the LCD screen before printing. The motion mode helps you pick a frame from a 15-second clip, while fistfuls of filters up the creative stakes. £179.99 (available Oct 20), fujifilm.com

Ruark R1 MK3

It may be little but the Ruark is a fierce example of audio excellence, already established as a top-performing DAB radio and Bluetooth speaker. New limited-edition Burnt Saffron and Wild Plum bodies (available in early November) add rich autumnal resonance to the range. £219.99, shop.ruarkaudio.com

The bold 46mm case features a 1.19in AMOLED screen, GPS, heart-rate tracking, contactless payments and is swimming pool-friendly.
