All the gadget and entertainment news you need to get the morning going

GoPro gets Apple Watch controls

GoPro controls on your smartwatch? They could come in handy! If you have an Apple Watch, now you can start and stop your recordings right from your wrist thanks to the latest update of the iOS app. As the video shows, it could be a much more convenient way to start recording an action shot.

That's not all, either. You can also use the Watch app to preview your shot and toss in HiLight Tags so you know when the sweet spots are. Additionally, the iOS app has been updated with a new design and various features, including the ability to grab high-res stills from video clips.

Lego Kylo Ren from The Force Awakens

Fancy yourself a Lego Master Builder? Think you could put together this life-size model of Kylo Ren from Star Wars: The Force Awakens? It's an official job, put together by Lego for the movie premiere on Monday, and it's pretty fantastic.

According to Entertainment Weekly, which has a full-sized version of the image, it's comprised of 28,826 bricks and took more than 260 hours to build. It also weighs 192 pounds and has a height of 70 inches. The premiere will also have a BB-8 Lego model and presumably others, and we'll point you toward the pictures once they hit the net.

McLaren P1 ends production

The fabulous McLaren P1 has concluded its production run, with just 375 of the £866,000+ rides ultimately made. Given the price and all the individual customisations available to buyers, it's no surprise that the run was so limited.

The P1 first appeared in 2012 and featured prominently in 2013's Forza Motorsport 5 on Xbox One; McLaren says it's the "most technically advanced and dynamically accomplished supercar" ever made. It certainly is the stuff of dreams, that's for sure. The Ultimate Series and GTR versions remain in production for now.

Way to the Woods is stunning

Way to the Woods is a third-person PC adventure game about "two deer in a strange place," and it looks absolutely stunning - also, it's purportedly designed by a 16-year-old artist.

However old the talent, we're already in love with its Hayao Miyazaki-esque backdrops and beautiful lighting, although it's probably well out from release: creator Anthony Tan is seeking an Unreal development grant and potentially other funding for full development.
