When you want an adventure away from nature, these cool devices will help you navigate whatever your favourite city throws at you.
AirSelfie 2, US$299.95
Fly the average drone in a city centre and you may attract unnecessary attention, but the AirSelfie 2 is a different proposition: it’s pocket-sized and designed to hover while taking photos with its inbuilt 12-megapixel camera. It also creates its own Wi-Fi network to which your smartphone can connect, sending your shots directly to your phone so you can bag your panoramic city shots quickly.
Olympus Tough TG-5, US$399.99
When your city break takes you somewhere hot and dusty, or wet and freezing cold, you may want to shoot with something more resilient. Enter the Tough TG-5: shockproof to a height of 2.1m, waterproof to a depth of 15m and freezeproof down to -10 deg C. Pro features such as a 20fps burst mode, high-res RAW shooting and 4K video add to the appeal.
Boosted Boards 2nd Gen, US$1,499
Positioned as the ultimate transport choice for city dwellers, this skateboard can zoom uphill, lasts for 11km on a single charge and has an impressive braking function. Control it with a Bluetooth-enabled handheld remote, and purchase an extended-range battery to travel up to 23km. The power port in front lets you attach a headlight too.
