Piaggio Zip 50cc scooter You may not be giving our Porsche Carrera (see page 24) too much penis envy with this latest little runabout from Piaggio, but the cost savings alone will more than make up for that. And it'll still get you where you want to go... so long as you don't want to go to another city. As the fuel prices rise, the thrifty executive will be buzzing between meetings on this and probably stopping off at every Italian coffee shop for an espresso on the way. price: £999 www.ukpiaggio.com
R2D2 Robot Projector (pictured) In a galaxy far, far away, someone has come up with this, the perfect self-treat or gift for the Star Wars fan. We're not sure this version of moviedom's favourite droid will be much use to the Rebel Alliance, though - he comes with a state-of-the-art DVD player and a projector that will beam your movies, video games, digital photos up to 80 inches across onto a wall of your choice. He also has an inbuilt FM radio and an iPod docking station. Obviously, such an iconic character needs an equally recogniseable peripheral - his remote control is in the shape of the Millennium Falcon. price: £1999 www.iwantoneofthose.com
Sony Xacti CG9 Your Chairman about to commit a little faux pas at the corporate jolly? You'll be glad you had this little number in your arsenal to ensure he sees things... ahem... your way when it comes to the next salary review. The Sony Xacti CG9 is a compact yet powerful little camcorder that's just perfect to create mini-movies for uploading to YouTube or somewhere equally embarrassing. The beauty of the CG9 is that it doubles as a 9.1megapixel digital camera. The potentials for high-level mischief are boundless. Price: £170 www.pcwb.com
Lenovo ThinkPad X300 Small is beautiful and who needs to be dragging around a 17.5" laptop when these little beauties are available? The Lenevco ThinkPad X300 is ideal for the busy commuter or business traveller. With 2GB of RAM, Intel UWB, fingerprint reader, three USB ports, and a 64GB SATA hard drive, every spare square millimetre is fairly packed with technology. price: £1750 www.dabs.com
