In this week’s tech-filled spectacular, Jason and Suzi square off in a special musical challenge.

Suzi opts to use a collection of off-the-shelf musical gadgetry, while Jason turns assorted pieces of technology into instruments with the aid of the Modified Toy Orchestra. Who will emerge victorious from this cacophonous challenge? Elsewhere, Jon tests out the latest mini-projectors on the market. In order to bring out the best in the devices, he first puts on his director’s hat and creates a special miniaturised movie. Using remote-control cars for the iconic chase sequences, Jon recreates cult 1960s classic ‘The Italian Job’. To judge the features of the projectors, Jon brings in diminutive Hollywood actor Warwick Davies, star of such classic movies as ‘Star Wars’, ‘Willow’ and ‘Harry Potter’. Also this week, Ortis tests out the ultimate highconcept gadget bicycle – the Bond Bike, which features an ejector seat, a flamethrower and a rear caterpillar track. And Polly sets out to find the five most durable and stylish bags fit to carry all the latest gadgets.
