The Design Museum has released its nominations for the coveted Design of the Year 2014 prize, and unsurprisingly it’s jam-packed with the latest tech.

From one-man planes with removable wings to the jaw-dropping Oculus Rift, there’s been some truly gorgeous tech this year. Each year, London’s Design Museum chooses a load of nominees for its Designs of the Year Award and then, of course, an eventual winner. Categories represented range from digital to fashion and transport and each of these areas are packed with loads of juicy, awesome tech that really pushed the boundaries of function and design.

Whether they’re prototypes, concepts or fully realised products that we use everyday, each show how design and functionality can work together to create something rather special.
