#100 PROJECT ASCENSIO

The concept art for this space elevator, designed by 30 -year-old Jordan-William Hughes, might look like it belongs on a Magic: The Gathering card, but the concept of switching out rockets for wires connected to a seafaring spaceport might just transcend the world of fantasy. The future isn’t burning fuel – it’s about sustainable transport. jordanhughes. artstation.com

#99 R AZER BL ACKSHARK V2 HYPERSPEED

Razer’s Hyperspeed wireless connectivity is the perfect partner for a capable headset like this. Not only do you get full freedom of movement – doubly so since, despite its chunky looks, the Blackshark V2 weighs just 280g – but also sound that’s as lag free as possible without wires. Oh, also superb sound and an excellent mic, but that goes without saying. £200, razer.com

#98 LINKFACE MOISTPOD

Don’t call your device that. Seriously, it’s gross. But whatever it’s called, the Linkface MoistPod does have some practical application. Hold the unit up to your face and, through a link to your phone, it’ll analyse just how dry your eyes are. Then it will spray out just the right volume of moisturising mist to take them from crispy to sparkling. Why have we waited so long for this?! £TBC, linkface.imweb.me

#97 TARGUS ERGOFLIP

Left-handers have been denied the luxury of ergonomic mice for far too long.

And it includes an antimicrobial coating that should prevent it getting too gross. £60, targus.com

#96 DERUCCI T11 PRO SMART MAT TRESS

What if your mattress knew a little too much? DeRUCCI’s does. It includes 23 sensors that track your sleep state and position, and builds in 18 support air bags that help it shift you about when it detects that you’re not sleeping sweetly. Check the report in the morning, and you might learn about health issues you never knew you had. $8,250 (around £6,550), derucci.com

#95 LOOKING GL ASS GO

There’s really no point to Looking Glass’ nifty holographic screens other than to elicit an ‘ooh, look at that’ reaction – but sometimes that’s all you need. The Go marks a smaller, more af fordable take on the depth-offield display, made for what Looking Glass calls Spatial Memories – and its software can ‘turn just about any photo 3D’. $300 (around £238), lookingglassfactory.com

#94 COLDSNAP ICE CREAM ROBOT
