Gadgets & Gizmos: Sex in space, virtual Stonehenge and voice-activated Monopoly
Steve Caplin gets all steamed up, with stories about sex in space, on Instagram, on DVD and more. He also waxes lyrical about the new 360-degree webcam at Stonehenge but is less enthused about a voice-activated version of Monopoly. There's a family-friendly beehive seeking crowd-funding, Japanese DNA matchmaking and NatWest's new way of using selfies for indentification.
