SEABUBBLES BUBBLE TAXIWith around four billion cars expected to be on the road by 2050, congestion and pollution are only going to get worse. A group of aeronautical engineers in France don’t like the sound of this, so they have come up with a very clever solution to the problem. Say bonjour, then, to the Bubble Taxi, a revolutionary water-based car that runs on a 2x10-watt battery that’s recharged by the sun, wind and water while the vessel is docked. The Bubble also uses the same hydrofoil technology found in the speed record-smashing Hydroptère trimaran to elevate itself above the waves once it reaches seven knots. The result is a zero-noise, zero-waves ride that promises to get you to work quicker, and with minimal motion sickness. You won’t even have…

1 GOOGLE PIXEL 3From £739, store.google.comThe Google Pixel 2 wowed us with its camera prowess last year (it’s arguably still the best on the market a year later), so we relished the chance to get our hands on the Pixel 3 ahead of its launch. We wanted to see whether the rest of the phone matched it, and if Google had worked even more magic with the camera.The Pixel 3 retains the two-tone, matte, softly curved design that was evident on last year’s range. With its aluminium frame, it feels smooth and premium in the hand. The 5.5-inch model that we tried eschews fashion by not including a notch in the screen, but the bigger 6.3-inch Pixel 3 XL does have a chunky section cut out of the display. Both…
