From a Bat­man USB flash drive to a Gats­byin­spired mi­cro­phone, we bring you up to date with the lat­est gadget and gizmo trends.

The vin­tage mi­cro­phone Even gad­gets are tak­ing cues from the Gatsby glam­our craze at the mo­ment, but this Blue Mi­cro­phones Snow­ball USB Mi­cro­phone has im­pres­sive sound qual­ity, too. Don’t be fooled by the vin­tage style; it can eas­ily be plugged into Macs and PCs with­out any need for ex­tra soft­ware. This high-end USB mi­cro­phone is per­fect for video chat­ting, podcasts, in­ter­views and even record­ing in­stru­men­tal mu­sic. Dh342,

The retro snap­per Is it a toy? Is it a funky purse? No, it’s the lat­est dig­i­tal cam­era with a near-un­pro­nounce­able name! The (wait for it) Su­per­headz Dig­i­tal Harinezumi 3 Cam­era Kit takes vin­tage-style videos and pho­tos. The vi­brant pink colour means you’re sure to stand out from the crowd and it’s small enough to fit into your pocket. The 3MP cam­era has 10 dif­fer­ent func­tion modes and a macro zoom for pic­ture-per­fect im­ages and ra­zor-sharp close-ups. If you like In­sta­gram, you’ll love this. Dh752.35,

The sea com­pan­ion There is more to the The Liq­uid Im­age Ex­plorer Un­der­wa­ter Video Mask than meets the eye. This clever – and very bright – yel­low snorkelling mask has a built-in video cam­era so you can stay hands-free while you swim with the fishes. It works up to a depth of 5m, takes 1,000 im­ages or around 40 min­utes of video per 1GB of mem­ory added, mak­ing it a per­fect choice for sea ad­ven­ture trips. Dh550, www.

The multi-pur­pose tracker Are you for­ever look­ing for your keys, phone, wallet, hand­bag, dog or even chil­dren? Then the Hipkey is your new best friend. Sim­ply clip this bit­ten-cookie-shaped Blue­tooth don­gle to the item of your choice – or even put it in your lit­tle one’s pocket – and when paired with an iOS de­vice, you can eas­ily lo­cate what­ever – or who­ever – you need to find.

The nov­elty drive The Caped Crusader is back – but this time as the Bat­man x Mi­mobot 8GB. This handy hi-speed USB flash drive has an im­pres­sive 8GB stor­age ca­pac­ity and comes pre­loaded with Bat­man wall­pa­pers, icons and dig­i­tal con­tent. Dump­ing the black leather look from the films, the Mim­bot is dressed in the clas­sic blue and grey out­fit. A must for retro comic fans with a need for data stor­age. Dh95.42,

The cute Wi-Fi ra­dio The Q2 In­ter­net Ra­dio proves it’s hip to be square. Just 10cm cubed, this nifty box in­cor­po­rates a recharge­able bat­tery that lasts for around 10 hours, so you can lis­ten to mu­sic on the move within Wi-Fi sig­nal cov­er­age. There’s no need for any con­trol but­tons thanks to the ac­celerom­e­ter – you sim­ply tilt it up and down to ad­just the vol­ume, point the speaker down for mute or standby mode and tip it over on one side to cy­cle through the four pre­set sta­tions.
