Apple iPad Mini

Apple responded to the likes of the Google Nexus 7 and Amazon Kindle Fire with its own smaller tablet – and in typical style succeeded in delivering a brilliantly made and highly desirable product that’s arguably handier than its bigger brother. Apple introduced the 7.9-inch iPad Mini as a way to compete in the increasingly popular area of “small” tablets. The screen is actually larger than that of rivals like the Kindle Fire and Nexus 7 and very impressive, even if its 1024 x 768 resolution disappoints a little in comparison to the third- and fourth-gen full-size iPad (we’re expecting a Retina display model to appear soon). In true Apple style, the Mini’s build quality and styling is superb, putting it comfortably ahead of its (admittedly cheaper) rivals in the design stakes. It’s a pretty thing with its gently chamfered edges, and weighty enough to feel sturdy – crucially without being too hefty for one-handed use. With swift performance and perfect dimensions for gaming, video watching and ebook reading, the iPad Mini has added yet another valuable member to the iOS family. Price: £269 Apple

Audi A8

Heavy on style, Audi has tearmed up with Bang & Olufsen to bring a powerful, refined speaker system to the A8 which will make drivers doubt their home hi-fi system. The luxury car for the audiophile. Why? A Bang & Olufsen Advanced Sound System is inside. When you start the car, two small tweeters emerge from the dashboard, designed to offer a balanced acoustic sound stage. The ‘acoustic lens’ tech is the same found in Bang & Olufsen BeoLab 5 speakers. In total, there’s 19 speakers inside the A8 which includes a sub woofer right at the back, bringing the total output power to a enormous 1,400 watts. Because the speakers are hidden, the temperature of the brutish amplifier is kept to a minimum. The traditional B&O can be seen in all the speakers - for slick, classical music at speed, the A8 does a great job of sounding better than your home hi-fi. Price: £53,690 Audi

Felix Baumgartner's space jump

In one of the most audacious stunts we’ve seen, Felix Baumgartner braved a solo freefall from the Earth’s upper atmosphere, breaking the sound barrier in the process, resulting in one of the most nail-biting moments of television ever The world held its breath as Felix Baumgartner’s ‘space jump’ was beamed live around the globe. The Austrian skydiver and BASE jumper ascended to 128,200 feet in a tiny pod and then jumped out, plummeting back towards earth at jaw-dropping speed, resulting in some of the most breathtaking pictures ever broadcast live. Bankrolled by Red Bull, the mission saw a crack team of boffins working on a variety of gadgetry, such as the LifeMonitor to ensure that Baumgartner could compete his jump successfully without incident. The Austrian daredevil not only set a new world record for skydiving (from around, oh, 24 miles), he also became the first person to break the sound barrier without a vehicle to help him. And as if the nerve-wracking jump and nail-biting descent weren’t impressive enough, Baumgartner then calmly landed on his feet. Strong stuff. Red Bull Stratos

Google Glass

Google’s epochal specs are likely to kick-start a wearable tech revolution. They’ll shoot photos and videos and deliver important information to your eye-line. Are we all about to become Google Glass cyborgs? Google Glass is one of those tomorrow’s world innovations that make modern tech such an exhilarating industry to be part of. The wearable specs, which will become availableto the public late this or early next, feature a small eye-level screen for viewing prevalent information from maps, email, social networks, breaking news and much more. Users can literally shoot photos and videos from their viewpoint using the built in camera lens that sits in the frame, while everything is synced to an iOS or Android smartphone. The long-awaited AR specs have already arrived for developers who’ve set about creating a host of interesting apps and uses. Naturally, there are privacy concerns, which we’ll be hearing more and more about in the run up to launch, but for now we can simply appreciate the innovation that’s gone into this futuristic piece of consumer tech. Price: $1,500 Google
