100 MOST WANTED

We’ll tell you what we want, what we really really want… the Stuff team write their own wishlists of gadgets old, new and in some cases not even out yet

Photography PETE GARDNER

Ameo Powerbreather

Given the inevitability of a jetboard wipeout (see below), I’m going to need some help getting around underwater. The Powerbreather uses a patented system for inhaling and exhaling via separate channels so you only ever breathe in sweet air, even if you’re snorkelling in the deep – a bit like Harry Potter on gillyweed in the Triwizard Tournament.

€89 / powerbreather.com

Polymega games console

I’m well old, so the nostalgia and instant gratification of retro gaming holds a lot of appeal. Kudos, therefore, to Matt ‘Hot Stuff’ Tate for switching me on to the Polymega modular console that plays classic cartridges in Full HD. Pre-orders open soon and Jungle Strike is at the ready.

£tbc / polymega.com

Apple MacBook Pro

Asus has had the audacity to place a second screen in the trackpad of its ZenBook Pro, and it’s a thing of beauty; but I’m still drawn to Apple’s latest top-ranking MacBook. I’m going to get stung for port adaptors, but that killer combination of performance and poise make this the pinnacle of creative portable powerhouses.

from £1249 / apple.com

Marloe Cherwell

Wearing an Apple Watch all the time means no escape from apps and notifications. In need of a digital detox? Marloe timepieces do away with smart features and even the battery, as they’re hand-wound. Conceived in a converted barn, when a model sells out it becomes instantly sought-after.

£249 / marloewatchcompany.com

‘Eclectic’ is probably the kindest way to describe my wishlist. If you’re reading, Mum and Dad, just start with the most expensive items and see how you get on.

Mako Slingshot Jetboard

I’ve never been surfing and I’m scared of sharks… but ever since Virgin Galactic pilot Alex Tai told me about a West Country company building made-to-order jet-powered monocoque surfboards, the thought of going Point Break off the Pacific coast has never sounded so appealing.

£8999 / makoboardsports.com

Myzone MZ-20 Smart Scales

I’ve become mildly obsessed with an activity tracker called Myzone that scores you on effort. The accompanying app involves keeping tabs on body metrics, and now there’s a set of smart scales for recording the data and sending it directly to my smartphone via Bluetooth.

£49 / myzone.org

Loewe Bild 9 (55in)

It’s a little-known secret that LG supplies a whole host of major TV manufacturers with OLED screens. Loewe took LG’s impossibly thin 7mm panel and transformed it into the most achingly pretty TV on the planet. As well as that unmistakable steel frame, the display automatically glides upwards to reveal a hidden 120-watt soundbar.

£6990 / loewe.tv

Lego Ghostbusters Ecto-1

I’ve made multiple visits to my local toy shop to buy the original Lego Ecto-1, only to discover its been replaced with the 1982 Cadillac Deville from that 2016 monstrosity of a remake. But I’ve found a dealer specialising in discontinued lines and now I’m excited beyond the capacity for rational thought.

Vollebak Solar Charged Jacket

Vollebak is one smart clothing label bucking the ‘gimmicky’ trend with its hoodies, graphene jackets and ski gear. Topping my wishlist is its Solar Charged Jacket that glows Kryptonite green after storing energy from the sun or the torch on your smartphone.

£270 / vollebak.com

Pioneer CDJ-2000NXS2

As an occasional DJ dabbler, I’d play a set of Ed Sheeran gabber remixes (backwards) if it meant having a pair of Pioneer pro multimedia decks. The NXS2s take care of everything, from support for all major DJ software platforms to playing music no matter what file format it arrives in, all while lit up like a Christmas tree. With hi-res audio support, authentic vinyl reproduction and a 7in colour touchscreen, last night a CDJ saved my life.

£1959 (each) / pioneerdj.com

Format this A multitude of music file formats are supported, including FLAC, Apple Lossless Audio, MP3, WAV, AAC and AIFF.

It’s a sync The free-spirited 2000NXS2 lets you link multiple players, laptops and turntables for manipulating your music.

Master mixer A gorgeous 7in touchscreen and the ability to zoom in on track waveforms means you never miss a beat.
