This is one of those design concepts that might also require a genie in a bottle to actually come into fruition. It's called the Canon Snap, a high-quality camera small enough to wear like a ring. Push its single button, and you've got digi-photos. Sure, looks neat. If they could just make that lens retract down to flatness it would be near-perfect. Sure, there are cameras smaller than the Snap already, but their quality probably achieves new lows of suckatude. So it all depends on what the designers mean by "high quality." Anyway, we like the Canon Snap's ultra-small form factor, because after all, even the best camera in the world won't do you any good if you don't have it with you. [Yanko Design]

So there I am, 10,000km from home in a foreign country (whose language I don't speak) covering a trade show by myself, and I realise the power brick on my XPS 13 is busted. This is a disaster. My laptop is my lifeblood. I need it to write stories, edit photos, and collaborate with the team back home. Without it, I'm truly screwed. And what's even worse is that my work XPS is the last generation without support for charging over USB-C, and because Spain doesn't give a shit about Dell, there was no replacing it (trust me I tried).
We barely know what the Force is in Star Wars.

But the latest arc of Darth Vader might have opened a bonkers new door. Hell, it might have blown the door clean off.
