If you love taking selfies, the Casio Exilim EX-TR80 has to be the camera of choice.

The 11.1-megapixel camera features a 360-degree rotating frame that lets you take selfies from a variety of angles.

It also offers highly customisable Make-up mode settings that ensure your skin is always smooth and flawless in the selfies.

The TR80 sports a larger 3.5-inch display (up from 3-inch in the TR70) for a split-screen display.

This allows you to compare your touched-up photo with the original.

UBTech Alpha 1 Pro



Whether you are a DIY hobbyist or a robotics engineer, you will be fascinated by the UBTech Alpha 1 Pro.

This whimsical, programmable humanoid robot comes with 16 high-torque servo joints that let it walk and dance around with its two legs and two arms.

It also comes with an intuitive software that lets you program 3D visual actions of the robot. Even novices can start working their magic with this software.

But if you just want to have some fun, you can control the robot via Bluetooth using the Alpha 1 control app (available on Android and iOS) on your smartphone.

Capdase Armor Suit Combo Case


$39.90 (iPhone 7), $42.90 (iPhone 7 Plus)

The Capdase Armor Suit Combo Case consists of a slim compact case - Rider Armor - that is tested to US military standards for shock protection, and a detachable "anti-gravity" cover known as Newton Cover.

The Rider Armor has an interchangeable back cover - Rider Jacket - that you can interchange with the Newton Cover. The Newton Cover features a special sticky surface that you can attach to smooth surfaces like glass. It is also washable, so you can easily get rid of dust that sticks to the surface.

When not needed, just detach the Newton Cover and attach the Rider Jacket to use it as a normal case.



From $3,698

For PC gamers who don't want to assemble their own gaming rig but want top-class power and flexibility, the Asus GT51CH could be the ticket.

It has been updated with the latest seventh-generation Intel Core i7 processor and supports up to Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 graphics cards with two-way Scalable Link Interface or SLI configuration.

The gaming desktop also features ROG-exclusive Aegis III application that lets gamers overc lock the processor, graphics card and memory for better performance. Furthermore, it has dynamic Asus Aura lighting effects on its central air-intake and motherboard for a visual feast while you game.

Klokers Klok-01



Looking for a unique timepiece? Check out the Klokers Klok-01.

Instead of the usual hands, it uses three rotating concentric rings to display time along a vertical red line. The rings - one each for indicating hours, minutes and seconds - rotate at different speeds, creating a symphony of motion. An integrated magnifying lens along the red line makes it easier to see the time.

This Swiss-made watch uses high-precision quartz movement and is made from a composite metal polymer for high strength and low weight.

It is waterproof to a depth of 5m.
