The VAIO multi-flip family of devices from Sony combines the benefits of slim laptops with the comfort of tablet computers. Sony has now expanded the range with the VAIO Fit 11A multi-flip, a compact model fitted with an 11.6-inch display. Housed in a beautiful aluminum casing, the computer is light and durable.

Thanks to a quad-core Intel processor of the latest generation, the 11A model allows you to edit your photographs and documents fast while its Full HD touch screen ensures a crisp picture, whether you are watching a movie or playing a video game. Triluminous Display technology, designed specifically for mobile devices, offers a lavish palette of natural colors.
Toys for Big Boys
The AR.Drone 2.0 from Parrot is a hi-tech, remotely controlled, four-rotor helicopter, or quadrocopter. It differs from other flying toys in that it comes with elaborate electronic features and without the ordinary remote control. Instead, it can be controlled with a smartphone or a tablet computer (iOS or Android-enabled) via Wi-Fi. The device feeds footage from its HD video camera back to the controlling device, so that the user can see what the copter “sees” in real time and fly the drone as if from inside it.
The newest, Elite, edition of the Parrot AR.Drone 2.0 is available in three colors: Sand, Snow and Jungle. The brown, beige and black of the Sand model ensure perfect camouflage in sandy and dusty areas. The Snow version combines white, gray and black to let the drone blend in with any winter setting, and the Jungle version comes in brown and khaki patches.
A special, limited availability set comprises the AR.Drone 2.0 Elite Edition (Sand version), and a GPS flight recorder.

When the humidity in a room drops below the optimum level of between 40 and 60 percent, putting a wet dishcloth or a water container on a radiator might not be enough to make the air less dry. Stadler Form, a Swiss producer, has unveiled a new range of humidifiers. One of them, the Jasmine, is an aroma diffuser that uses ultrasound to diffuse essential oils in the air, so that aside from a comfortable level of humidity, the air where you live and work is pleasantly scented with an aroma of your choice.
