Stuff Gadget Awards 2012 – Most Wanted Future Gadget shortlist
Admit it, you’re excited by things that have yet to see the light of day. In this category we peer through the veil of rumour and hearsay and find out what forthcoming products and anticipated concepts you can't wait to have in your home and about your person.
Is it a TV? Is it a set-top box? No! It’s… not been announced yet. But, as Apple knows very well, not saying anything is the best way to get people talking about nothing.
Google Project Glass
Google’s augmented reality glasses turn you into RoboCommuter, with a heads-up display showing everything from map directions to video chat.
Pebble E-Paper Watch
Kickstarter’s first big gadget hit, Pebble’s E Ink smartwatch is open-source and customisable, allowing you to add apps. Oh, and it also tells the time.
Asus Transformer Book
An i7-powered tablet/ultrabook convertible may not blow your mind but this proves Windows 8’s touchscreen lovelieness is giving product designers a fresh shot of radicality.
If you're looking to put a number on 'most wanted', how about the 90,000 people who backed this Android gaming console on Kickstarter?
Six times the power of your current console, with AR glasses, a new version of Kinect and all the media muscle you could want? Oh, all right then.
Imagine Kinect can control your computer with a Minority Report-style wave of the arm. It can even detect your individual fingers. That’s Leap Motion.
Check out the Stuff Gadget Awards 2012 – and don't forget to come back on November 1st, when we'll be announcing the winners!
