Japanese Ice Pick

Ever found yourself smashing a particularly stubborn bag of ice against the corner of a granite worktop, in the hope of freeing a few chunks for your G&T? As is often the case, the Japanese have invented a gadget to ease this predicament. The Japanese Ice Pick can be used to break apart ice cubes or chip a chunk off a block. We'd also recommend carving your guests initials into their ice to prevent awkward mix ups.

Eastpak Amos x Wood Wood Bag

If you've ever seen the cartoon The Adventures of Tintin, this beautifully 'correct' bag may ring a few bells - it looks a little like the 1950's canvas sack that the strawberry blond reporter took to Tibet with him. A collaboration between Eastpak, the ingenious travel and lifestyle brand and Wood Wood, darlings of the Danish street couture scene, it is entitled Desertion. Assuming you're not colour blind, it's fairly obvious why.

Ray-Ban Legends Collection

As Jack Nicholson famously observed: "With my sunglasses on, I’m Jack Nicholson. Without them, I’m fat and 70.” To celebrate the power of a pair Ray-Bans, the iconic brand is marking its 75th anniversary with a new Legends collection. The 1960s-era Laramie model (pictured) is being re-issued and benefits from modern materials and three vintage lens colours.

Timex SL Series Flyback Chrono

Sports chronographs are usually best paired with casual attire; slim, minimal watches with evening wear. Timex's ninja-black SL Series Fly-Back Chrono is one of the few timepieces that works with with both t-shirt and jeans or sleek velvet tux. It performs a need trick, too. Usually when one resets a watch, one loses several seconds in the process because the seconds hand stops. This watch contains a microprocessor that tracks how long the seconds hand stopped for - then moves it back into the same position when you snap the crown back down.

Power To Generation M

The iPhone might be the most popular camera in the world but while it's handy for insta-mat-o-tweeting your heavily vingetted snaps, there are limits to what it can do. The Canon EOS M - you might have heard the buzz - is pretty much the best new interchangeable lens camera on the market. It's as powerful as a spy satellite and has a superb touchscreen. To show off its capabilities, Canon has commissioned 'Generation M' (a hand-picked group of artists and photographers) to experiment with one. The video above shows photographer Clemens Poloczek playing with moving images as he drives through the forest in a DeLorean DMC-12. It's a classic road movie with a twist: unlike real life, the DeLorean doesn't break down.

Jaguar F-Type

Fifty years. That's how long it has taken Jaguar to come up with a successor to the E-Type. But to be fair, the British marque had set the bar so high that any old lollygagger-on-wheels would have pretty much decimated its rather enviable heritage. On that note, behold the F-Type V8S. Sadly, contrary to speculation, it won't be making an appearance in the new James Bond film, Skyfall (instead, M is driven in an XJ Ultimate). But on the upside, the F-Type has more than enough gadgetry to make 007's knees tremble.

Sponsored Video: MINI: Not Normal

It's fair to say that the 'Amalgamated Drawing Office project number 15' - better known as the MINI - has come along way since its inception in the late Fifties. A British icon and a rally driver's dream rolled into one, the MINI is one of the few cars to be driven by hippies and bowler-hatted gentlemen with equal measures of pride. A democratic, idiosyncratic slice of engineering genius that has charted its own path for over 40 years? Sure. A normal car? Not exactly.

The MINI grew not out of a desire to build a great car - but out of a desire to build a better miniature car than the Germans, whose economical 'bubble cars' had become hugely popular in the midst of the Suez fuel crisis. But when Britain's answer to the bubble car was launched in 1959, design snobs laughed at the MINI's trademark 'wheel at each corner' layout, while industry experts labelled its front-wheel drive engine (which left 80% of the Mini's floorpan for passangers and luggage) anachronistic. Those whose bought one, however, appreciated every bit of its creative design.

Besides, had the MINI have been designed like a 'normal' car it's unlikely anyone would remember it today - far less own one. Being 'Not Normal' is, it seems, what made the MINI a success. To celebrate this, you can watch the brilliantly art-directed 'MINI: Not Normal' video above. Oh and one last thing. The MINI isn't the only thing that has come a long way since late Fifties: the company is now owned  and brilliantly-run by BMW. So well done, Germany... not a phrase you'd normally hear in Britain.

Eastpak Rollout Duffle Bag

The shape of a very large pencil case, this finely-crafted Rollout mini duffle bag displays all the hallmarks of Eastpak's legendary durability. Made from tough canvas with superbly-stitched seams, we're almost certain that this product - much like Alastair Campbell - has a half-life of 300 million years. The size is perfect for books, artists' tools, work boots, a change of clothes or - as Mr Outre discovered - the accourements required for a day at the beach. And by 'beach', we mean freezing swathe of pebbles on the South coast. By 'accoutrements', we mean Thermos. Still, we're happy to report that the canvas Rollout is more than capable of withstanding the bleakest conditions afforded by the English Riviera...

Shaker & Co. Cocktail Bar

Shaker & Co train the world's best barman - and provide their expertise to The Savoy, The Nightjar and Selfridges amongst others. Hence it's reasonable to expect a lot from their very first venture of their own: Shaker & Co. Not surprisingly, it's hugely impressive. The cocktail list is creative without resorting to gimmicks (no attention-seeking 'meat-flavoured' cocktails here) and the staff are insanely talented. If you order the likes of a Breakfast With Obama, you can see for yourself - watch as they forensically assemble the ingredients as if constructing an atomic bomb. 

Around £8 per cocktail | Shaker & Co, 119 Hampstead Road, London, NW1 3EE

Sponsored Video: Samsung's motion-sensitive Smart TV

Sponsored: If you want to know what the future of TV looks like, we strongly suggest you view the video above. The good news is that the remote control is ancient history. No more finding it; you won't actually need it - thanks to Samsung's motion-sensitive, voice-activated, mind-reading televisions. The bad news is, fights over the remote control will now go on infinitely because anyone in the room with a voice or at least one working arm can change the damn channel.
