It looks a bit like an iPod nano with a wriststrap but I'm Watch is actually much closer to being the Holy Grail of hybrid gadgets. This 1.54in touchscreen watch-phone is due before Christmas, and will come rocking Android 1.6 with apps, notifications and instant messaging, a 464Ghz processor and 4GB of built-in storage.
Zumreed X2 Hybrid Headphones
No, these aren't just really leaky headphones, as heard on almost every bus in the country. These hybrids from Zumreed have a switch that lets you change from noise cancelling headphones to speakers – plus the rotating cushioned ear cups can be rotated to stand them flat. As speakers they'll last four hours when fully charged.
LG Scanner Mouse LSM-100
Joining Danger Mouse and Mighty Mouse on an honourable list of mice we'd quite like around the house, LG's Scanner Mouse has more business-like priorities. It works as a traditional mouse but also scans documents up to A3 in size in real time – perhaps unnecessary but still brilliant.
Tefal Toast n Egg 2-slice Toaster
This hybrid has been around for a few years but it's still inducing gasps from gadget lovers. Get a Wallace and Gromit style awakening (almost) with this Tefal toaster that poaches your eggs on the side while browning your bread.
Sony Handycam HDR-PJ30VE
Plenty of compacts are stuffing pico projectors into their innards these days but here's a camcorder/projector duo that performs. The Exmor R CMOS sensor shoots full HD video that you can project, at 640x360 resolution, onto any surface up to 3m away.
