From the May 2022 issue of E&T: tech to revolutionise Zooms, games… even houseplants.

Obsbot Tiny 4K


A remarkable webcam with a built-in gimbal and tracking software, so it pans, tilts and zooms to follow you around. Pace up and down and it follows, or give a presentation, or lead a yoga class. You can even use gestures to zoom. 4K video quality and dual omni-directional mics with noise reduction.

Realme GT 2 Pro


The disruptive young brand’s new flagship phone has a back panel made from a biopolymer, reducing carbon emissions while giving a pleasing paper-like feel. In fact, it’s the world’s first TCO 9.0 certified smartphone, for its sustainable design and construction.


Audio-Technica ATH-GDL3


The audiophile brand brings high-fidelity sound to gamers; this headset works with PCs and consoles alike. Oversized drivers and an open-back design deliver a spacious, immersive sound. A detachable boom mic lets you talk in game (or calls or meetings).


Zhiyun Crane-M2S


This nimble gimbal lets you film smooth footage with anything from a smartphone to a mirrorless camera. It’s lighter than predecessors (549g), has a mini display and a built-in 1,000-lumen fill-in light with adjustable brightness and four colour filters for professional results.


Garmin Instinct 2


A rugged watch combining military-grade hardware with wellness features including body battery, menstrual tracking and stress tracking. The solar version offers unlimited battery life as a smartwatch, 72 hours in GPS mode. Slim wrists? Get the 2S (40mm case instead of 45mm).

From £299.99 

PlantsIO Ivy


It’s the cross between plant pot and Tamagotchi that you never knew you needed… This crowdfunded smart flowerpot uses seven sensors and expresses 70 ‘emotions’ with kawaii faces on its display. It could be thirsty, cold, it can even express joy when you touch its leaves!
