IT is no secret many people in this town have a fetish for gadgets. We live in a world where it is common for one to use technology to do his work while he sits back and relaxes. Here are some of the latest gadgets.

Picture Station digital photo printer
This is ideal for anyone who loves to take pictures but is either too lazy or too busy to take them to the studio for printing. It is about the size of a business card holder and prints picture as you take them.

All you need to do is plug one end of a USB cable into your camera and the other into the printer. It is ideal for family gatherings and parties.

The Picture Station costs sh550,000 at all Anisuma Traders’ outlets and sh350,000 from the Canon outlet on Jinja Road. A sh170,000 printer pack (a cartridge and paper) can be bought with it.

Oscillating Belt XFT-860
Ever thought of having a masseuse at your beck and call all the time? Whoever has been to a massage parlour knows how relaxing it can be.

Now one can get a massage whenever they wish! Just strap the Oscillating belt where the itch is, press the remote control and relax while it massages you. The gadget leaves you feeling as refreshed as if you were out of a massage parlour, only for much less.

It is also good for people who spend most of the day sitting, driving or those who are sore after exercise. It goes for sh143,000 at Uchumi Supermarket, Garden City.

Third generation 4GB Apple ipod nano
We all know that ipods store music. Now brace yourself for the 3G ipod nano of four gigabytes.

This gadget allows you to play back audio and video files up to five hours of your favourite music videos and movies.
It will also keep thousands of your phone contacts and calendar.

The 3G Apple ipod nano was released in the US in September last year and costs sh370,000 from electronics stores on Kampala Road and Jinja Road.

The ipod is sleek, stylish and feather-light and comes in blue, black or silver colours.

With this ipod, you might no longer have to keep shelves of CDs and DVDs in your house.

Couple the 3G ipod with the LG 8B flash disc (sh240, 000) and you might no longer need to tot about with a briefcase containing documents.

JVC car stereo
Coming at a hefty price tag of sh1.4m from Anisuma Traders, Jinja Road, this may seem reserved for the higher end drivers. But it is indeed a worthy investment.

The stereo allows you to play music, watch DVDs, replay pictures and listen to FM radio from the confines of your car. The system can also use a flash disc or a memory card and you can connect it to your mobile phone.

Forbes AquaSure tap water filter
The Aquasure tap water filter takes on the role of boiling and filtering water.
Let the water stream into it and it will come out ready to drink. The filter costs sh71,500 at Uchumi Supermarket.
