There are barbecues and Lego toys on this week’s Lust List – but also plenty of bits of new tech to stick on your face.
Whether it’s in front of your eyes or into your ears, the noggin seems to be the new real estate for tech these days.
Perhaps because all the space on our wrists is taken up with great smartwatches and our pockets are full to bursting with awesome 5G phones.
Considering we’re still not allowed out to see anyone, engaging in a spot of virtual reality exploration or upgrading headphones doesn’t seem like a bad idea.
And for when the springtime (and socialising) actually does materialise? Well, that’s what the barbecue’s for.
Read on to check out all the tech we’ve rounded up for this week’s Lust List.

Bose Frames Soprano
Bose’s stylish audio-equipped smart sunnies seem normal on the outsidebut on closer inspection handily double up as wireless headphones. Each arm contains an impossibly tiny speaker that fires sound right into your earholes for just over five hours.
