The company has just introduced a new LEGRIA model with 1080p recording, 12MP stills, 2.7in touchscreen and built-in Wi-Fi. The latter lets you beam content to a phone or tablet, while the screen twists so that you can film or photo yourself more easily. There’s also a built-in stand and tripod mount. There’s no built-in storage, so a microSD card is a must. It’ll be out mid-September, priced at £270.

This one, currently a Kickstarter project with 37 days to go, is called the HOT Watch and has something its rivals don’t: private calling. It does this by allowing you to use your cupped hand as an earpiece. The watch uses Bluetooth 4.0 to connect to phones (it’ll work with most, but iOS and Android are recommended) and features gesture controls, proximity alerts (to tell you that you’ve left your phone behind), 1.8in e-ink screen and support for all manner of apps.

One such example is PaperDude VR, an homage to arcade classic Paperboy that puts you in the saddle of the bike-riding broadsheet-chucker. The project, from Globacore, combines Oculus Rift with the KickR bike trainer and Kinect, allowing you to ride, look around and yes, throw bundled newspapers at post boxes and obstacles. It’s awesome. Check out the video above.
