AirSelfie Aerial Camera

(pictured above)

AirSelfie clams to be the smallest hands-free way for you to take panoramic HD photos and videos from the air in any environment.

All you have to do is take your aerial camera from the powerbank and switch it on. Open the AirSelfie app (available on iOS and Android), press the lift button and watch your aerial camera hover to heights up to 65ft (20m).

From there you can adjust the device’s height and direction with the app, let auto-hovering take over and take an HD aerial shot or video. Land AirSelfie safely and smoothly onto your open hand or grab it while it’s hovering in mid air and place it back in the powerbank where it will be recharged.

The device also lets you seamlessly share your experience on social media.

Winston Hardware Filter

Winston is a plug-n-play hardware filter that promises to reclaim your use of the internet on all connected devices at home to help you stop the tracking, spying and hacking of these devices.

Winston’s makers say: “Mobile apps exist to track you. Winston stop embedded tracking and advertising scripts on your phone. ISPs collect and sell your data. With Winston, they Don’t. We encrypt DNS so they can’t see what you are doing.”

Winston’s zero-knowledge technology doesn’t allow anyone (including its own makers) to see, log or decrypt your internet activity. It does this by scrambling and encrypting your home network, preventing anyone from watching what you’re doing.

Its anonymous privacy mesh network conceals your location from advertisers, hackers and other snoops.

Flic 2 Smart Button

Flic is a small push button. In the Flic app, you choose what you want to happen when you push once, push twice, or hold it down.

There are a large number of integrations already in the Flic app and ready to use. Through third-party services such as IFTTT, Zapier, and Microsoft Flow, practically anything is possible. And if you’re an advanced tech user, with Flic’s versatile HTTP Request function, you can write your own commands in the Flic app.

Flic 2 can give you visual feedback in three colours: green, yellow, and red. It can blink green if your action was successful, yellow while you’re waiting, and red if there is something wrong.

Flic 2 can toggle multiple apps at the same time, so you can push to turn on your lights via one app and push twice to snooze the alarm in another app, for example.
