So back in 2013 (yes all the way back in 2013) we used to post a weekly article that highlighted some of the coolest products on the web, called The TechNutty Wish List, it contained a weekly roundup of some of the coolest gadgets and technology products that we can find.
And now after all that time we have decided to bring these articles back, but instead of posting articles weekly (sometimes a little longer than that), we have decided to change the frequency of publication to once a month, this can be at the start of the month, end of the month or anywhere at the middle.
And here is the first of the reincarnated Wish List posts, we have been waiting a long time for this so let’s just get it over with and get things started.
[vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_text_separator title=”Metal Earth Star Trek sculpture making kits” title_align=”separator_align_left” align=”align_left”][vc_column_text]Red5 has a number of sculpture making kits from a company called Metal Earth, allowing Star Trek geeks to build their very own Enterprise, Enterprise-D, Klingon Vorcha and even the Bird of Prey without the need of their own Scottish engineer or stash of millions tucked behind the sofa, all you need to do is pop out the parts from their metal binding and then connect them together using a set of tabs and holes, with no gluing or soldering required.
You can find out more at the links below, all of the kits are priced at £11.95.

As the brain child of The Wand Company this screwdriver can control your TV, iPhone/iPod Dock & a host of other infrared-controlled gadgets using a range of gestures.

However that doesn’t stop us from mentioning it now, as one of the coolest kids products around today, Osmo combines the physical game world with the technological app world via a number of games that include the Masterpiece drawing application, Tangram puzzle board game, Words guessing game and finally the Newton creative application.
Check it out at the link below, it’s £69.95.

If the answer to that is yes then you should look no further than the Aquabot Jellyfish, complete with Smart Fish technology, built-in sensors and even lights, but without the need for cleaning the tank or feeding the fish (after all robots don’t eat).
Check it out below, it’s priced at £14.95.
The Awesome Aquabot Jellyfish From Red5[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_text_separator title=”Airwheel Airboard”][vc_single_image image=”57661″ img_size=”full”][vc_column_text]In 1985 Back to the Future II predicted that we would have hover boards by this year, however as far as actual hover boards go the closest thing we now have is the new Airwheel Airboard. Allowing its users to effortlessly hover from A to B with the least amount of effort, all you have to do is stand straight on its pressure sensitive pads and transfer your weight to the direction in which you want to go, and thanks to its full 360 degree turning and self balancing technology you can effortlessly float into any direction with a top speed of 8 MPH and a top distance of up to 7-9 miles.
The Airwheel Airbound is now available on Red5 for £599.95, check it out at the link below.

And to do all of this you don’t have to be a master of rocket science (despite their name), just lean on your toes to move forward and brake by clicking your heels, and all whilst wearing pretty much any regular shoe, and if that’s not enough there’s even an iOS and Android app that allows you to track how far you’ve gone, your mileage and battery life.
Check them out below, they’re priced at £999.99.

Sadly no thermal exhaust pipe was included in this model, but to make up for it the light does include a 1m Micro USB cable to charge it.
Check it out below, it’s set at the price of a cool £19.99, which is thankfully a lot cheaper than the £543,000,000,000,000,00 Kickstarter campaign.
