T3 Hype: best tech released this week; PS VR headstand, Motorolo VerveOnes Music Edition, Loewe Klang 5 speaker and more

Rather than doing oodles of separate stories on various announcements, we'll filter them to bring you only the stuff that matters most, updating every Friday for your reading pleasure.


This week we have PS VR headstand, Motorolo VerveOnes Music Edition, Loewe Klang 5 speaker and more.

PS VR headstand

If you’ve bought or are thinking about getting PlayStation VR then you need this. It’s a head thingy - creepy looking normally, sure - but ideal for holding your virtual reality headset.


After some button bashing just bosh the headset on this and you won’t have to worry about damage or lens scratching. Just don’t leave the £30 stand near your bedside if you want to avoid a scary wake-up.

Motorola VerveOnes Music Edition

Motorola is taking on the wireless Apple AirPods with its latest in-earphones dubbed VerveOnes Music Edition.

These beauties come with rubbersied buds for a comfy fit, a battery case for 8-hours use on a charge and AI voice controls. All that is pretty good for the £150 price.

MTS Multi Threat Shield

Yes, it’s what you intrepid crime fighters have been waiting for, a briefcase style shield that folds-out into a bulletproof defence.

The MTS Multi Threat Shield can take a .44 Magnum bullet, be stabbed and even a bat impact. It sits folded and with the flick of a wrist pops out into the full shield - perfect for police and anyone out for a late night snack in areas they shouldn’t be loitering

The Savior will save ya. At last, a laptop bag that's entirely bulletproof, stab-proof and punch resistant!

Loewe Klang 5

This might sound like a bad guy from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles but it’s actually a set of compact wireless speakers.

Klang 5 offers aluminium builds with five drive units and four amplifiers for powerful, balanced sound. A pair will set you back £3,490 and the Klang 5 subwoofer is £1,390.
