A new year brings a new batch of state-of-the-art tech home and leisure must-haves. Don't want to miss out on the newest and best? (Course you don't, you're a Muddy reader!) Order our top six picks, pronto.
Designed by ambitious British start-up Nothing, these EAR 1 wireless earbuds are unparalleled in terms of quality at a good price — two of our favourite things. They’re noise-cancelling, splash-resistant, long-lasting, and have a neat, futuristic design, all for under a hundred squids.

Finally, some VR goggles that feel like they fit into everyday life. Incredibly lightweight and made with things like meditation and watching TV in mind (rather than hardcore high-tech gaming), the Vive Flow goggles are dead quick to set up and controlled by your phone.
Line ’em up
Time to tech-up your mood lighting, don’tcha think? These Nanoleaf Lines are infinitely customisable smart light bars that can change colour, intensity, and even sync up with music or a film. Think gorgeous colours, customisable style (build them up in whatever shape you like!), and effortless vibe.
