Interactive T-Shirts

Bobby McFerrin has been tapping his chest for decades to create music. Now you can do it too with minimal practice.

Interactive T-Shirts are everywhere this Christmas and come in various designs from drum kits and guitars, to stereos and Wi-Fi detectors.

The electronic part of the design is easily removed for a quick wash too, so all you JLS fans can remain squeaky clean and the only thing that'll whiff is your musical taste.

iRobot Roomba 581

The last thing you want after a bowl of Xmas pud and half a dozen glasses of vino is to grab the broom and begin the arduous task of sweeping up. So how nice would it be to unwrap something that'll do it for you?

The iRobot Roomba 581 is a sweeper that unlike the woman in your life, does the cleaning without a single whinge. Just a few whirrs and kerplunks.

So brush your cleanliness worries aside and pick up a new companion for Henry. He doesn't have to do all the work and neither do you.
