Are they legal? Who cares! As many, many youtube videos have proven, Drones are a photographer and videographers best friend. So, get this one! The Parrot AR.Drone 2 comes with a built in GPS system, which allows it to guide it back to its starting position when things go a bit hectic. So, how about getting a few brilliant drone shots of the Umhlanga Lighthouse, or a few high, high angled shots of the babes and bros on the beach. Going for about R4400,00, it may seem a bit pricey, but actually its a brilliant deal considering that older models without the GPS system are still being sold in stores for as much as R6000!
Arg! Even Durban gets its miserable weather, and while your holiday house may come with DSTV, the constant reruns will eventually drive you insane. So when you finally give up checking your Facebook and Twitter feeds, turn your iPad into a mini foosball table with the New Potato gadget. I’m still not sure how it knows which handle your are turning when, but it does. Just be careful not to get too excited with the turning and scoring, as it may send your iPad flying across the room. Anyway, for one R900,00 is a pretty good deal for hours of fun.
Yes, the ultimate smack-factor accessory. The gadget that everyone loves to hate is taking off in SA, and now a little more advanced with Bluetooth capabilities. So when you are bored with taking close up selfies, here’s an option to indulge in self-worship, giving you a few extra feet to get that ultimate high-angle shot of your perfect pout. Just don’t be surprised if you go walking off a pier, or if you get tackled by angry strangers on the beach – for only R255 you can extend you vanity to new heights.
F*ck the beach when you can play Shadow of Mordor or Bloodhorne! If your pale skin is simply allergic to sun and sand, then stay indoors, hook up the PS4, and get fighting!

Place all weekend long, and conquer Mordor before its time to hunt for those Easter eggs, the PS4 on the Orange Online Store is going for an incredible R5000!
But if dad or the wife refuses to share you with your PS4, then get the MOGA rebel controller, that turns your iPhone or Android device (two separate controllers so be careful which one your order) into an advanced handheld console. It works with most games, integrating seamlessly with game handling. The response time is great, and the phone grip is study and will be able to withstand those violent gestures. Great gadget at a great price – just R1000,00
Cause a ruckus on the beach and at the same time charge your phone – and with no help from Eskom! And while South Africa struggles with rolling black outs and overpaid parastatal executives, hit the beach, connect your iPhone and blast those sounds – thanks to the super-efficient solar panel – and marked down from R1400,00 to R839,00 its an offer too good to be true.
Well, Google Glass may have come and gone, but you can still invade other’s privacy with the SunnyCam Video Recording Sunglasses – with built-in HD Video camera and photographic capabilities, all at a push of a button – and it records audio in stereo. It takes creepy stalking to a whole new level – so, while lying around the pool at the Oyster Box, record your view and post it later for the world to see – for R1745,00
