Remember those communicator devices on Star Trek and the endless gadgets that Q was able to pack into the tiny surface area that was James Bond's watch? These are no longer a wild fantasy thanks to the tech whizzes of Silicon Valley.
The long-rumoured Apple iWatch is on the horizon, but the clever bods at Sony already have the upper hand (or wrist?) when it comes to wearable tech with the Android SmartWatch. Hot off the press this week from the Mobile Asia Expo is the news that Sony are launching the SmartWatch 2, a device that offers up direct connection with your Android device.
The SM2 will let you take photos remotely using its camera app, browse through downloaded emails and control your music player without ever taking your phone out of your pocket. Oh, and it's waterproof as well should you ever need it underwater.
There's no news on pricing yet for the SM2, but the current incarnation is retailing at £76.55 so don't expect this one to break the bank. Or, sadly, come equipped with laser cutter and high-powered magnetic charge.
