What was the last gadget to change your life? Not just give you a few hours of extra battery life, lighten your rucksack’s load or make ordering a chicken korma easier, but actually do something totally new? For me it was a couple of years ago when I got hold of a robot vacuum cleaner. Since the now lovingly named Jeeves arrived at home, I’ve outsourced all my vacuuming and suffered infinitely fewer arguments over skipping out on my cleaning duties. Given that ‘doing a Leedham’ is common terminology at Stuff HQ for leaving your rubbish on someone else’s desk, you can imagine how much grief this might have amounted to. Since robot vacs only count as a household essential for messy folk, the most likely gadget to have transformed your existence…

I EXPERIENCED A VIRTUAL REALITY MELTDOWN HTC’s Vive Pro gave me a throbbing headache this month. That had nothing to do with the stunning virtual worlds I explored – it was the real world that was giving me grief. Not only did I discover my PC wasn’t specced highly enough for the Pro, but my flat’s cleaner also scolded me for reorganising the furniture to accommodate it. Luckily, Overclockers were kind enough to loan me a beefy PC. As for my cleaner? I’m worried she’s rinsing my sheets in toilet water. Ryan Jones, Staff Writer REVIEW p62 I GOT ADDICTED TO STICKERS, AGAIN As the proud owner of a fully completed World Cup ’98 Panini album, I thought I was done with begging for swapsies and sending off for individual shinies. Then the Russia 2018…

21 PAGES OF THE BIGGEST STORIES FROM PLANET TECH KEY SPECS Display 6.1in 2240x1080 OLED OS Android 8.1 Oreo CPU Kirin 970 RAM 6GB Storage 256/512GB Battery 4000mAh MATE FOR LIFE HUAWEI PORSCHE DESIGN MATE RS If your idea of excess is eating a whole Domino’s pizza by yourself or watching every series of The IT Crowd in one sitting, then you clearly haven’t been introduced to Huawei’s new Porsche Design Mate RS. It’s a monster of a phone with a price that swells to €2095 for its 512GB incarnation, though you can always take the 256GB edition for a mere €1550. The Mate RS was announced alongside Huawei’s already impressive P20 and P20 Pro handsets… and despite the massive hike in price, the specs don’t look much different to those offered by the latter phone. It shares the Pro’s…

OPEN A NEW CHROME TAB HP Chromebook x2 The easiest way to make something sound boring is to call it ‘educational’. Take Acer’s Chromebook Tab 10: it may be the world’s first Chome-powered tablet (see panel opposite), but it’s being billed as a tool for studious teens to write their essays on. Snooze! Fortunately, Google’s operating system is spreading its wings and detaching itself from the keyboard for a second time – in a shell that’ll appeal to those of us who ditched textbooks long ago. The new HP Chromebook x2 is a more high-end offering, with a 12.3in 2400x1600 screen, 4GB or 8GB of RAM, an Intel Core m3 CPU, 32GB of on-board storage and a reported 10.5 hours of battery life. Stateside, you can pick one up for just short…

CHEAPER THRILLS GoPro Hero If you want a high-spec GoPro for your dirt-bike backflips, perilous rock climbs and surfing exploits, you’re already well catered for. But for those of us who lead lives more Poldark than Point Break, those cams are a costly investment. Just want to document your country strolls and get some FPV footage of your dog? Then consider the new Hero. At £200 it’s an affordable entry-level GoPro, and while you’ll lose the 4K and super-slow-mo stuff – expect it to top out at 1440p @ 60fps – you still get a 2in touchscreen, waterproofing down to 10m and digital stabilisation. It’s tough as hell too, able to go places your smartphone simply cannot. The Hero supports QuikStories, the nifty software that automatically edits your footage into a video complete with…

KILLSWITCH ENGAGE Marshall Mid ANC To most people, the name Marshall means long-haired frontmen, moshpits and guitar solos. But for a while now it’s also been synonymous with fashion-focused headphones. The latest in the line is the Mid ANC, Marshall’s first pair of active noise-cancelling ’phones. Flick a switch and the headphones will eliminate distracting background racket. We expect the custom drivers to provide a good level of detail and bass, while battery life is estimated at 20hrs+ with the noise-cancelling turned on – or 30hrs+ of wireless playback if you’re willing to let the outside world in. Just try to resist smashing them to pieces at the climax of a really good song. As hot as… one of Slash’s face-melting solos £239 / stuff.tv/MidANC…
