Every week Lucy Hedges from Stuff.tv joins us to talk everything technology and news, and here are her picks of the week.  

Website of the week – blackcabsessions.com

This is a series of one-song performances by musicians / poets / performers recorded in black cabs. Motto: One song, one take. It started as a way to promote new bands in London and provide a platform to showcase their talents. It's now grown to attract some of the biggest names in music like Jack White and The Roots.

App of the week – Manything, iOS, free

This turns your iDevice into your own CCTV system with continuous live feeds and unlimited recording – using the camera you already have. It can also detect sound and motion and you can create edited clips to share. A new time-lapse functionality will soo become available.

Gadget of the week – Artful Speakers
Fancy some brass instruments repurposed as acoustic amplifiers / iPod docks to play music without the need for electricity? Then this is for you. Each piece is mounted on solid piece of English oak, which houses the amplifier and solid brass iPhone holder that boosts sound by three or four times using full-size trumpet, trombone. The instruments act as natural amplifier and then the trumpet, say, can be removed and played as normal.
