WFA stands for work from anywhere. This stylish rucksack features a hidden pocket for AirTag or other tracker, padded space for a laptop (up to 16 inches) and storage for all digital nomad essentials. It’s 100 per cent recycled canvas, made from 36 plastic bottles.


Motorola Edge 40

A top-notch new smartphone with all mod cons including IP68 waterproofing, wireless charging and blistering 5G speeds. But what sets it apart is that you can fully charge it in just 23 minutes and get a decent charge (12 hours of average use) in just six minutes.

One home hub to rule them all? Pick of the pucks? This supports more than 50,000 smart home devices from more than a thousand different brands, while prioritising privacy (they don’t sell your data). Pay a small monthly fee if you want to control more than five devices.

The world’s first MIDI instrument to receive the Tech4Good Accessibility Award, this music machine looks and feels like a videogame controller. It’s fun, accessible, hand-made in the UK and works with all things MIDI. Comes with software and samples.

A pricey, rechargeable, self-heating lunchbox. It’s large (9x27x16.5cm and nearly 2kg) but has enough battery for three uses. Tip its little water container into the base, press a button and heat your meal with steam in 15 minutes anywhere, even at the top of a mountain.
