102 MOST WANTED

Back by negligible demand and because 101 is never enough, the Stuff famalam have each compiled their own lists of gadgets, games and gear they’d sell a limb for (or, y’know, just save up)

Sega Mega Drive Mini

Shortly before we started peeking at each other’s work and scuffles broke out, one thing we could all agree on was that Sega joining the retro console revival is a good thing. Here in all its shrunken glory is the Mega Drive Mini, faithful replica of a ‘90s cult classic for the GamesMaster generation, spiritual home of Sonic the Hedgehog, and the console for kids who didn’t wet the bed after playing Kirby’s Adventure on the NES. Given the original 16-bit Mega Drive cost £190, £70 seems a bit of a bargain for reliving the glory of dislodging motorcyclists with nunchucks in Road Rash II. It arrives on 4 October. £70 / megadrivemini.sega.com

Megamind

Among the 42 pre-loaded games are Earthworm Jim, Streets of Rage 2, Golden Axe and a host of original Sonic titles.

● ● Megadeth

You’ll find no battery-fatigued Bluetooth here: the console comes with two classic wired three-button control pads.

● ● ● Megabytes

Games can be played in a stretched 16:9 aspect ratio, and an HDMI connection means no outdated analogue TV cables

GoCycle GX

Children of the ‘80s may remember the Raleigh Vektar, with its ‘onboard computer’ for tracking time elapsed, distance travelled and speed. Ahead. Of. Its. Time. The GX does much the same with an app, leaving the fold-up bike to electronically assist you up to 20mph.

£2899 / gogcycle.com

iFi Aurora

Not quite named after former lower league footballer Iffy Onuora, this all-in-one music system is clad in bamboo and inspired by the architecture of Tokyo. If that trivia doesn’t impress your guests, drown them out with six drive units and two bass radiators that adapt sound to the room.

£1299 / ifi-audio.com

Orbitsound Air D1

You know in Spectre when Bond returns to his sparse Notting Hill apartment? The one thing he’s missing is music, but God forbid 007 should clutter up the place with two speakers. Instead, the active Air D1 creates audiophilegrade stereo from a single cabinet using clever proprietary tech. The stand looks properly mean too.

£12,000 / orbitsound.com

Panasonic transparent television

I once had a lovely Panasonic MiniDisc player with a transparent digital display on the remote – and I’ve had a thing for see-through tech ever since. This concept OLED TV keeps appearing at tech shows to tease me… Pana, please, make the damned thing.

£tbc / panasonic.com

Anden Domino

I’ve just done my family tree and discovered ties to Walthamstow in north-east London, so I’ve decided to do my bit for ‘my people’ and buy this magnetised Apple Watch charging base, made to order by local craftsmen. It was that or support Spurs, so no contest really.

£149 / madeby anden.co.uk

Solitary mourner of the MiniDisc, the man in charge of the mag will snap your arm off for a transparent TV or a sports yacht – he’s not fussy JAMES DAY EDITOR-IN-CHIEF

Master Lock MLD08EB

Get into a hotel room and the first thing I do is wedge a load of tech in the safe. But get home and my wares stay strewn around the house… which is not good. So I need this solid steel safe, from the brand that helped Houdini, with biometric fingerprint recognition.

£145 / masterlock.eu

Princess R35

Without question my top billionaire’s toy of 2019, the Princess R35 doesn’t just make motorboating easy with its unique Active Foiling System; it also comes with a Naim sound system, waterproof Focal speakers and a panoramic display for watching surfers stack it.

£535,000 / princess.co.uk

Smeg KLF03

Who knew I needed a rose gold kettle to match my Apple Watch? Boiling the perfect brew in the classiest way possible, the sheen on the steel of Smeg’s special-edition KLF03 kettle (and TSF01 toaster, same price) will remind you just how shattered you look every morning.

£180 / smeg.com

Beosound Stage

What to put with a transparent TV? Just unveiled in Venice, Bang & Olufsen’s first ever soundbar is a proper Danish love-in and oozes appropriate levels of Scandi cool. Designed in collaboration with Norm Architects and featuring Kvadrat fabric, it comes in a silver or bronze finish.

from £1250 / bangolufsen.com

Beats Powerbeats Pro

My favourite true wireless buds… until I accidentally left them in a Newhaven hotel room and caught a ferry to France. Beats’ most refined sound yet, rapid pairing with Apple’s H1 chip, all-day battery life with the charging case, and a hooked design so they stay in my weird-shaped canals – oh, how I pine for you.

£220 / beatsbydre.com

Honda E

It seems incredible to me that a company as famously forward-thinking as Honda hasn’t made an all-electric car yet, but I’m pinning my hopes on that being because the stupidly cool E gets things right first time. Judging by the 150PS power and 300Nm of torque, this is every bit a city car in city clothing. It’s got sporty rear-wheel drive, but the reason for this is sadly mundane: a turning circle of 4.3 metres and an Auto Park feature to help you navigate the tightest of streets. Reserve one now for £800… but Honda, please make a Type R hot version. Love you forever.

£30,000 (est) / honda.co.uk
