Whether you're planning a camping trip — brrrr! — or just worried about losing power, the Eton Raptor ($TBA) can keep you informed. It features a AM/FM/WB digital radio, 10 station presets, a digital clock display with alarm, a chronograph, an altimeter, barometer, and compass, an auxiliary audio input, an 1800mAh rechargeable battery, an LED flashlight, a solar panel for charging, and a bottle opener, all packed into a slender, splashproof carabiner body. Just think of it as your digital Swiss Army knife. [via]
Judging by the piles of snow visible from the windows of Uncrate HQ, it's officially acceptable to begin shopping for winter toys — and the Porsche Design Bobsleigh (£170; roughly $265) is near the top of our list. As a more affordable alternative to Porsche's Aluminum Sled, the Bobsleigh features a more aggressive design, a low center of gravity for ease of steering, superior directional stability, and an included carrying bag. Just go easy on the non-caloric, silicon-based kitchen lubricant.
