Raspberry Pi Zero W 5 out of 105 out of 10
2 wanted
5 quid, for a teeny but fully-functional Linux computer. They are LITERALLY giving away computers on the covers of magazines now :-O

... OK, so a bit more than 5 quid if you want the "W" version with WiFi (which is much more useful)

Powerball Hybrid 4 out of 104 out of 10

Powerballs are wicked, the METAL ones are smoooooooooooth but pricey, however the HYBRID ones seem to bring the best advantages of the metal rotor but in the less pricey polycarbonate shell

Creality 3D Printer Aluminium Extruder kit 10 out of 1010 out of 10
0 wanted
The one part of my 3D printer that has broken - still works but is awkward, would like to replace the broken plastic with the sturdier metal version.
Check prices: Including the upgraded PTFE Bowden Tube is a bonus, but honestly the main point is the Aluminium (Or Aluminum [sigh]) extruder.

RTL-SDR Software Defined Radio with 2x Telescopic Antennas 10 out of 1010 out of 10
0 wanted
Tune ALL SORTS of stuff from 500 kHz to 1.7 GHz, basically slurps up a huge chunk of the radio spectrum, straight into a laptop / pi / etc for decoding in software, at which point you can decode a whole bunch of interesting signals from the airwaves, AM/FM/TV but also all kinds of interesting digital things, aircraft, weather stations, ships, and loads of hamradio stuff.

Similar one is currently receiving my Weather Station and noseynick.net airplane tracking, but has to alternate between them, caudsing interruptions to the airplane tracking. Would be much neater if I could be receiving more than one thing at once.

Check Prices: Sometimes the SDR-Dongle and Antennas are cheaper in the bundle, sometimes separately.

BBC's latest "BBC Micro" is more like a kid-targeted Arduino with a 5x5 LED grid and some buttons built in. It's 16 quid for the micro:bit itself plus battery pack.
