RIMAC C_TWO Don’t pretend you hate flash cars. If Rimac gave you the keys to its futuristic new electric ride you’d be gone in a lot less than 60 seconds. Heralded as the “evolution of the hypercar”, Rimac claims that the C_Two does a walloping 0-186mph in 11.8 seconds, with a max speed of 258mph. If those numbers are true, Rimac’s newbie will become one of the fastest cars in the world, gaining entry to an elite club occupied by the likes of Hennessey and Bugatti. The C_Two’s performance is aided by an innovative battery pack delivering 120kWh energy, 1.4MW of power and exceptional thermal management. It’s not a stripped-out performance car, either – premium materials and tech combine to produce something luxurious and eminently usable. There are three high-def screens…

meet the team

MATT BOLTON Editor Ever since he got his 4K TV, Matt won’t shut up about how it “elevates” his “cinematic experience”. So the team finally let him do a feature about the best stuff to watch in Ultra HD (p83). MICHELLE MCLAREN Art Editor As our resident running nut, Michelle was keen to check out our affordable true wireless headphones (p96). No amount of promising her that they won’t fall out will stop her constantly checking. PAUL DOUGLAS Global Editor-in-Chief, T3.com Paul’s been interested in the results of our cheap action camera group test (p100), to use as dash cams on his motorbike. Gotta record all of the cool stunts he pulls… ROB JONES Tech & Gaming Editor, T3.com Rob reviewed both the Samsung Galaxy S9 (p90) and Sony Xperia XZ2 (p94) this issue.

editor’s letter

Spring is here, and I have emerged from the long dark with a determination to better myself. Or, at least, to better the things around me that I can paint or upgrade, which will make me feel just as good. For a start, we’ve got a guide to the tech and tools you need to make some great home improvements, as well as tips on how to make better use of the space. That’s on top of the usual raft of smart home gear we always have, including the current smart bulb ranges – always a great start for a subtler home upgrade. And then we’ve got all the new gadgets you can get. I know a lot of people will be drawn to the phones (p90) - they’re what we use…

standalone vr

VR needs a jacked-to-the-gills PC or PS4, or a powerful phone ensconced in a headset, right? Not any more. The next generation of headsets uses phone-like screens, processors and sensors all internally. They’re combined with lightness and comfort, VR-specific design, high-end lenses, and an existing library of mobile games and experiences. It stops VR being a heavy-duty accessory, and turns into an experience you can just hop into – with more and more VR video being uploaded to YouTube, it’ll be natural to just pop on a headset to kill a few minutes and go somewhere new. Freedom is a big plus point here, because the full head-tracking WorldSense tech in Lenovo’s Mirage Solo enables you to cavort around your lounge ducking, bobbing and weaving through Daydream-compatible apps, but without the…
