The Lust List: new tech we want this week

The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is in full swing, albeit virtually, this week and we’ve had waves of new tech.

There’s a gigantic telly from Samsung, a rollable phone from LG and even a smartphone-connected doggie doorway for Fido.

There’s also all the following gadgetry that we’ve compiled for this week’s Lust List.

Start saving now, because we’d expect a concerned call from the bank manager once all this lovely tech becomes available.

Panasonic JZ2000

This stunning 4K OLED is one heck of a clever gogglebox. Loaded with artificial intelligence and Dolby Atmos, it identifies the content you’re gawping at and optimises the picture and sound accordingly.

Price tba (available early summer),

V-Moda M200 ANC

V-Moda has taken its hexagonal design and thrown in Bluetooth, active noise cancellation, stylish new buttons for playback control, power and pairing, and USB-C charging.

Price and availability tba,

Sony SRS-RA300

Music enthusiasts who like speakers to spit out audio in all directions will love this. It comes loaded with Sony’s 360 Reality Audio and promises to deliver a roomfilling or multi-room experience.

£280 (available Feb),

Lenovo AIO 7

It might look like your bog-standard Windows 10 PC but like its portable, shapeshifting siblings, its rotating screen gives it an edge, transforming the 27in monitor into a TikTok-friendly vertical one.

£1,183.12 (available February),

Roland MV-1 Verselab

Verselab wants to be an all-in-one production studio for singers, songwriters and other creative types, with 3,000 Zen-Core sounds, mixing and mastering effects on board, vocal recording capabilities, 16 playable pads and more.

£599 (pre-order),

Michael Kors Access Gen 5e Darci

As one of the biggest purveyors of Android wear, Fossil is synonymous with touchscreen timepieces.

Under the Michael Kors brand, expect wrist notifications, payments, sleep and activity tracking, and 4GB storage, alongside a side serving of sparkle.

£279 (available spring),

OnePlus Band

The Chinese smartphone maker is dipping its toes into wearables, and although it’s late to fitness tracking, its simple approach means it’ll cover the basics well and won’t demand too much money in exchange for wearing it.

Price and availability tba,


Looking like the result of an ill-advised night of passion between a tablet and an e-reader, this Android slate rocks a colour display minus backlighting for a less visually straining experience.

£310.97(available April),

Arlo Video Doorbell Wire-Free

Whether you’re stuck to the sofa or on your holibobs (we can but dream), being able to peep at who’s at your front door and chat with them makes this device an outstanding doorman.

£179 (pre-order),
