Gadgets that make you look cool | LUXX – The Times
It is odd to feel nostalgia for a time when you weren’t alive. Odder still when the object prompting it represents a future yet to arrive. But, nevertheless, when I hop on my electric Vespa Elettrica and noiselessly accelerate like a zippy two-wheeled milk float from the future, that is what I feel: like I’m back in the 1970s – although, on this moped I will do so without expelling any CO2 in the process. If I need some sunglasses for the journey, then the Italian Fauna Spiro glasses will look as Italian as my Vespa, but connect to my phone and discreetly play whatever music I want. And, when I get back, if my glasses can play music, then why not my coffee table?
