Tonino Lamborghini is really good at making expensive things. For decades, that's mostly meant cars -- beautiful, beautiful cars that 99 per cent of people will never even get the chance to sit in, let alone drive.

What does the guy charged with kitting out NASA and the Jet Propulsion Lab do all day? He has to provide tech for the smartest people on the planet, and buy gadgets to enable the next-generation of space-flight. Despite the lofty job description, Tom Soderstrom has still found time to enable a 3D-printed spacecraft, and hopes to one day augment the way our brains work using technology. Get ready for blast-off.

Asus popularised the cheap detachable laptop, but they have always been chunky little things. Not the Transformer Book Chi. Asus claims the new 10.1-inch T100 Chi is the thinnest Windows tablet ever made. And the 12.5-inch T300 Chi -- combined with its keyboard -- is now thinner than a MacBook Air.

Video: More and more Aussies are sitting down in front of sports like cricket, tennis and football with a refreshing drink in one hand and some sort of mobile device in the other.
