From E&T’s November 2022 issue: Luggage that can go into the ocean, high-tech massagers, 3D-printed e-bikes, a return to music tapes, vacuum refrigerators that cut food waste, and more.
Osprey Transporter Waterproof Duffle
A truly waterproof luggage, it has welded seams, waterproof zippers and is IPX7 rated (1m submersible for 30 minutes) so you can literally swim or tie it to your canoe. It can be carried like a duffle or worn like a rucksack. A removable top handle doubles as a padded harness.

A pioneer in virtual surround sound soundbars, this new compact soundbar and wireless subwoofer can beat it. Dolby Digital and Virtual Surround provide crystal-clear dialogue and sound projection. Despite being 60cm wide and 6.4cm high, it’s small enough to fit under any screen.
Renfor True View Eye Massager
An affordable way to look like Daft Punk while enjoying a relaxing massage. Think of it as a high-tech hot towel over your eyes. Modes include heat, compression, vibration, and music. It has a built-in Bluetooth speaker. It’s cordless and portable, and thanks to the ‘Vision Window’, you can even do your daily tasks while massaging your temples.
Metaxas & Sins TR-X Tourbillon
Lovers listen to music on tape. This kind of tape. An attractive reel-to-reel music player for analog audio enthusiasts and recording engineers. If money wasn’t an issue, it would cost about as much as a Tesla. Also, the additional cost of the stand is around £10,000. There are also expensive models.

The custom-fit 3D printed carbon frame e-bike is extremely light and extremely strong. It is due to its seamless strength. Instead of gluing or bolting sections together, it is 3D printed in a single pass of continuous carbon fiber thermoplastic composite. Custom printed to each rider’s measurements. No two are alike.
£3,699 Superstrata Bike
This new flagship 4-door refrigerator/freezer features Hitachi’s new vacuum compartment technology that extracts most air from the sealed food drawers. A partial vacuum reduces oxidation and greatly extends the shelf life of perishables. It also helps retain moisture and nutrients, resulting in less waste and more flavor.
