You probably already have several bags you use for various purposes — one for hauling all your gear to work, one for tackling the outdoors on the weekends, and another for when you're on the road. With the Ember Backpack, you get one bag for all of your needs. Its modular design lets you customize it depending on what your day has in store, adding on a laptop sleeve, hard pouches, military pouches, a phone case, utility straps, a handle, and more. Components attach using strong magnetic snaps, while pouches feature fleece lining to protect your gadgets, and waterproof nylon and leather construction keeps everything dry.
Not many people can say they've won multiple X Games medals on both snowmobiles and motorcycles — and fewer still can claim they did it wearing a prosthetic leg they built themselves. But Mike Schultz, creator of the 2013 Popular Science Invention Award-winning Versa Foot, sure can. Taking what he learned from building his first prosthesis, Schultz built this prosthetic foot using FOX motorcycle parts, creating one of the most customizable prosthetic feet for athletic applications out there. Made with adjustable shock absorbers, interchangeable sole plates, four different ankle configurations, and durable construction that can stand up to mud, sand, snow, and water, the Versa Foot is ready to handle pretty much anything you can.
