Wearables Review

This hoodie (yes, hoodie) delivered a great massage

There are a few problems with massage chairs. Primarily, they never seem to provide adequate pressure, offering more of a light tickle than any kind of deep massage. They're also expensive and have the issue that when you're sitting in one, you can't really be doing other things. The AiraWear solves this issue by building air massage chambers into a hoodie that goes where you go. I got my sore back into one to see just how well it works.Read More

Video Review: Toyota Fortuner shines off the beaten track

We've already revealed what we think about the Toyota Fortuner in our road test, but now it's time to see it in action. It mightn't be the most refined performer on the road, but we quickly discovered it feels right at home in the bush. With seven seats and plenty of space for all your kit, it suits intrepid parents who neglected to swing by the condom aisle before getting busy. Enjoy our video review, complete with some gorgeous drone shots!Read More

2016 BMW C650 Sport and GT review: Hunting sportsbikes on a maxi-scooter

BMW says its new C650 Sport and GT maxi-scooters represent its "urban mobility" range - but that seriously undersells the ability these things show on the open road. Sure, they're a great way to get passengers and luggage through city traffic, but with standard ABS and traction control, revised suspension and a focus on sporty handling, the C650 is more than capable of bagging sportsbike scalps in the twisties. Loz Blain went hunting.Read More

BMW X1 xDrive 25i: The consummate all-rounder

Not even BMW, a brand built around the slogan "ultimate driving machine," has been able to avoid the pull of front-wheel drive. It started with a minivan – the Series 2 Active Tourer – but the space-saving tech has quickly spread across to BMW's smallest SUV. So, is the X1 worth the sticker price and can a roomy family SUV really be built on the skinny carcass of the Mini Cooper? After spending a week in the xDrive25i, we have some answers.Read More

Review: 560G is claimed to be "world's lightest high-security bike lock"

When it comes to bike locks, there are two main types: heavy but effective U-locks, and lighter but less secure setups such as cables with padlocks. Well, Altor Locks is out to change that. Its compact new 560G weighs just 1.23 lb (or 560 grams, hence the name), yet is claimed to be extremely theft-resistant. We recently had the chance to try out a demo unit for ourselves.Read More

​Review: Flicks portable boombox packs a projector

When the boombox hit popular culture over 30 years ago, it brought the party outside. For the first time it was convenient to have loud, high-quality sound anywhere you wanted it without needing AC power or having to hook up complicated sound systems. With the proliferation of wireless Bluetooth speakers and the MP3 format, boomboxes have gone the way of the mullet haircut, but a new version called Flicks from Dashbon is bringing it back with a very 21st-century addition: a projector. We got to try one out.Read More
