The Amazon Echo, launched in the US in 2014, is finally coming to the UK. Amazon’s voice-activated home audio speaker system with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity and Alexa Voice Service, arrives on September 28, but is available to pre-order now from Amazon.co.uk. BBC News takes a look…

The Sensus Smart Guitar by Mind Music Labs of Sweden was the clear winner in the Hardware/Internet of Things category at the recent Midemlab startup contest in Cannes. It looks like a traditional electric guitar, but with motion, touch and pressure sensors all built into the instrument, the music that can be created is not your typical rock and roll.
The Sensus basically packs all the audio equipment a guitarist needs into the guitar itself. It’s a wireless instrument that lets players add modulations and effects without the need for an array of pedals.
