APPLE 3D TOUCH

With its 3D Touch technology, Apple has added another dimension to the way we interact with our phones. This technology senses the amount of pressure users apply to the display and reacts accordingly. For example, it is used for the Peek and Pop function, where a light press shows a preview of content, but a heavier press opens content directly.

CASIO EXILIM EX-FR100

The Casio Exilim EX-FR100 is a freestyle camera that comes in two detachable modules: one housing the camera, and the other a control module with an LCD screen. The modules are linked via Bluetooth. This split design allows users to take pictures from unusual angles - for example, while wearing the camera module on the wrist, or while using it on a selfie stick.

AIR+ SMART MASK

This mask by ST Engineering's subsidiary Innosparks can be a lifesaver during the haze, when traditional masks can feel stuffy. It comes with a micro ventilator unit that can be attached to the left side of the mask to draw out hot air, and to let cooler air filter through.
