Do you ever look around – in your home, on the train, in restau­rants, shops, li­braries, even class­rooms – and won­der if we’re swim­ming in some kind of gad­get soup?

Tech­nol­ogy has in­fil­trated our ev­ery­day lives: ac­cord­ing to one re­port from last year, the UK con­sumer elec­tron­ics re­tail mar­ket is worth £16.1 bil­lion a year, and it’s grow­ing fast. Crunch the num­bers and you learn that, on aver­age, adults here spend a not-in­signif­i­cant £300 a year on gad­gets alone.

But is your money well spent? That’s the ques­tion we ha­bit­u­ally ask on Tele­graph Rec­om­mended, a new sec­tion of our web­site ded­i­cated to find­ing the best-in-class prod­ucts, from TVS to toast­ers. Our crack team of re­porters con­duct hands-on test­ing and speak to ex­perts to dis­cover the pur­chases that are worth your time and money. In short, we do the re­search so you don’t have to.

In the process, we’ve looked at a dizzy­ing amount of new tech­nol­ogy – in­clud­ing some giz­mos that might make your life just a lit­tle bit eas­ier, more fun, and maybe even slightly health­ier. For those who love tech­no­log­i­cal in­no­va­tion and hav­ing the lat­est toys, here are a few ideas to check out.
