Gift Guide - retro

These retro gadgets should stop you getting too upset when there's no DeLorean shaped pressie under the tree



The 35mm roll of film, the crank on one side for filming, the optional LomoKinoScope for an instant look at your negatives – it's enough to make us start a DSLR bonfire and well, make a short Lomography film about it.

Nixon Rubber Murf


On top of a half-watchface that weirdly works, we're a fan of the mod fonts, red time telling line and injected silicone strap of Nixon's Rubber Murf. Classic 60s automobile optional.

Koss Pro 4AA


A pair of pro-sounding over-ears for wannabe helicopter pilots and old school radio producers. Be warned: they're noise isolating so you might not hear the wolf-whistles.

Fujifilm X10


Borrowing the X100's retro styling, this tyke's got a much cheekier price – but there's nothing vintage about the X10's specs. There's a 12MP sensor, optical viewfinder, 4x optical zoom and pop up flash. 

ION iCade


Working a more garish brand of retro, the ION iCade has one purpose in life – to let you play the Atari's Greatest Hits iPad app games in their full glory. The full-size joystick and buttons will bring a tear to the eye of arcade gamers come Boxing Day.
