Gadget Show Live @ Christmas – 1-3 November 2013, Earls Court, London – www.gadgetshowlive.net

“I love this list!” said Gadget Show presenter Jason Bradbury. “I can totally relate to it, especially the craving for power tools – I can’t live without my Dremmel mini saw.

“If I could add to it though, it would be a skateboard for teenagers and a gadget that every man should own but hasn’t even been invented yet - a robotic pram rocker to send babies to sleep. My digital life in my 30s was massively disrupted by crying babies and a gadget like that would have been a Godsend.”

Gadget Show Live @ Christmas takes place at Earls Court in London on 1-3 November and tickets are on sale now at www.gadgetshowlive.net. Jason Bradbury – along with his Gadget Show co-presenters Pollyanna Woodward and Jon Bentley – will present a spectacular hour-long entertainment show in the Super Theatre each day.
