The Lust List: new tech we want this week

Get ready to trip a little light fantastic with these week’s selection of gadget goodness.

Philips has arrived with a new TV sporting its Ambilight technology while the Lumos Matrix will make sure you’re cycling safely now that it gets dark straight after lunch.

Sony makes two entrances on this week’s list with a pair of stonking in-ear headphones and a rather tidy new Xperia smartphone to gawk at.

All told, there’s a lot to lust for in this week’s gadget haul.

Read on to take a look at the Christmas gifts you wish you were getting this year.

Philips OLED +935

This rectangular box does things a little differently thanks to tiny edge projectors that create visual fireworks designed to mimic on-screen colours on your wall, while Bowers & Wilkins takes care of sound. Available in 48, 55 and 65in flavours.
