Even before we lived life in lockdown, many of us succumbed to bouts of boredom, with the average Brit spending five whole years of their life wistfully gazing out of the window!

With boredom-busters now in demand more than ever before, we’ve rounded up a few gadgets that will keep you entertained, even when social distancing is a distant memory.

Dribble Up Smart Soccer Ball

A trip to the local park for a kickabout might be out of the question right now, so what do you do if you’re desperate to keep your football skills topped up but don’t have a big enough garden − or maybe you don’t have a garden at all? The Smart Soccer Ball connects to your TV and will give you lessons right from your own home.

Sensors in the ball react to the slightest of movements, so you don’t have to worry about losing your ‘tekkers’ when you can’t leave the house.

Nintendo Switch

Hook it up to your TV for multiplayer madness – Mario Kart is a must! – or find a nice quiet corner to bury your head in a quest with Zelda or the latest season of Football Manager.

Nintendo’s revolutionary latest system combines the best of big-screen thrills and portable practicality and is the perfect companion to while away many an hour.

Karaoke system

People averse to karaoke in public don’t know what they’re missing out on. Well now they can (kind of) find out, with a huge range of in-home systems available.

Some are as simple as downloading an app to your smartphone or TV, but if you want to go the whole hog with microphones and all, you’ll be belting out Sonny and Cher with your mum in no time.

Drone

If you’re stuck in your local area for the foreseeable future, why not get a whole new look at your surroundings with a drone-mounted camera.

Options with good cameras come in cheaper than you might think and the gadget will give you a fresh perspective on life when lockdown is over, too!

Mini projector

If you’ve turned to Netflix to beat the boredom, why not watch your favourite films and shows in real style with a projector?

We’re not talking the big chunky thing you hang from your ceiling, but one that links to your laptop or tablet via Bluetooth and projects onto the nearest wall, or even the ceiling. Get curled up in bed and stick a flick on – just make sure you don’t nod off!

Hopefully we’ve given you a few ideas on how you can beat the boredom when you’re stuck at home. Some of the options are pricey, so make sure you’ve considered your finances before making a purchase.
