Here are three very tiny gadgets small enough to potentially one day accidentally swallow

Skeye Nano 2 FPV Drone

Selfie-sticks are terrible inventions, requiring you to balance your precious phone on the end of a rickety old bit of rod while you and your friends desperately huddle together like animals. It’s an inelegant solution, which is why TRNDlabs created the world’s first selfie drone, a tiny orange helicopter that hovers a few feet in front of you and snaps your picture. At just 4cm wide the Skeye Nano 2 FPV is the smallest camera drone in the world, and is more stable and pilotable than TRND’s previous mini-drones thanks to improved gyroscopic controls and auto-takeoff and landing. Using your phone as a live display (which can be mounted to the included controller) you can fly the drone in first-person up to distances of 50 metres. Odds of accidentally swallowing: 1/10

RIF6 Cube Projector

Whether you want to sling your quarterlies up on the boardroom wall, beam the latest episode of Game of Thrones on to your hotel room ceiling, or simply perform an impromptu shadow puppet show for some local disadvantaged youth, portable projectors are an increasingly affordable expense for the businessperson on the go. The RIF6 Cube is just two inches wide and, for its size, surprisingly bright. It creates a 120 inch wide, 854 x 480 pixel display and can be plugged directly into a smartphone or laptop using HDMI, MHL or Micro-USB. A lack of either USB Type-C or Lightning ports means newer phones will require an adapter, but once you’re plugged in this is a mightily powerful little device, with a single charge lasting 90 mins. Odds of accidentally swallowing: 4/1

Lenovo Yoga Book

From £549.99,
The world’s thinnest 2-in-1 laptop, the 4.05mm Lenovo Yoga Book is about as thin as your average USB cable. That’s thin enough to slide underneath most doors. It’s also light enough to blow away on a strong breeze. On one half you’ve got the screen, which is attached on a stylish watch-band hinge to a flat Wacom tablet. This tablet becomes a (slightly awkward to use) virtual keyboard when needed or can be used with the included stylus to create handwritten notes – you can even swap in an ink nib and slip a sheet of paper over the tablet to write physically and digitally at the same time. The Yoga Book is a little underpowered for a laptop, but a supremely portable 2-in-1 graphics tablet that’s refreshingly unique in its design. Odds of accidentally swallowing: 150/1 (still quite wide)
