Asus Google Nexus 7 (from $249) & Asus Taichi (from $1,599)
A nice double shot from Taiwanese manufacturer Asus. After partnering with Google to develop the best 7-inch tablet on the market, Asus turned to Windows 8 for its unique, dual screen notebook/tablet Taichi device. With these releases, plus the PadFone and Transformer gadgets, Asus is defining itself as the most innovative and creative PC developer.
Libratone Zipp (from $499)
These beautiful wireless speakers from Denmark are the epitome of high-end design and technology. Capable of four hours playback via AirPlay, the Zipp does not need a Wi-Fi network to connect to iPhones, iPads, iPods and Mac computers. The wool covers are interchangeable to match décor and the cylindrical design creates a 360-degree audio experience.

In a big year for digital cameras aimed at hipsters, Olympus provided the most authentic retro model with its OM-D Micro Four-Thirds system camera. The 16-megapixel sensor is complemented with world class autofocus speeds, 5-axis image stabiliser and a 3-inch tilting OLED touchscreen.
