Winner Design of the Year
Asus Eee Pad Transformer
Guide price: £430
When it comes to typing, a proper, physical keyboard is way better than a touchscreen, right? And better than a Bluetooth keyboard is a keyboard dock that expands the tablet’s connectivity with a couple of full-size USB ports, bequeaths it a proper mousepad and increases its battery life to a whopping 16 hours. That’s exactly what Asus’ convertible does, making it as good for netbook tasks as it is tablet ones. Ditch the keyboard and you’re still left with a thoroughly accomplished Android Honeycomb tablet with more connections than most. Clever thinking, Asus.

A stunning, acoustically inert parabola designed to induce dribbling in audiophiles, the Blades both sound and look awesome. And at £20,000 a pair, they really should.
Yes, it is just a cordless home phone – but with a touchscreen interface, cool sound effects and digital clarity, it’s a home phone like no other.
Stunning retro looks straight out of the ’80s, a weighty sound out of now.
This 31in-wide battery-powered piano-shaped synth offers enthusiast-grade sound reproduction – and it’s so cute.
