Nothing makes a tough project go by faster than a few good, cold beers — so give your tool chest a bottle opener worthy of sitting with the rest of your tools, the Milwaukee Bottle Opener Wire Stripper ($10). With a wide, cushioned, ergonomic handle that provides plenty of leverage, opening up a bottle has never been easier. It's made to be as durable as the rest of your tools, so no matter how much you put it through, it'll keep working. Plus, it has the added benefit of a wire stripper (for some reason), so it's really two tools in one.
There are table games, and then there are status symbols — and the Eleven Ravens Stealth Ping Pong Table ($70,000) sits somewhere on that spectrum closer to a status symbol. Limited to just five units, this special edition ping pong table is sure to start a few conversations (and probably encourage a touch of jealousy). Inspired by the Nighthawk Stealth Bomber, and made entirely from aircraft grade aluminum with carbon fiber accents, each of the five tables comes numbered and signed by the artist who crafted them. And with details like hidden drawers that perfectly hold your paddles and balls, the design serves form as well as function.
Just when you think you've seen it all, some mad genius goes and creates the unimaginable, a Batman Tumbler Golf Cart ($17,500). While it may not have rocket-propulsion and an array of formidable weaponry, that shouldn't diminish anything about this impressive beast. Starting from the frame of an EZ-Go Golf Cart, they've stripped it down and rebuilt it from frame and sheet metal with a carefully-sculpted cowl. The tech specs include a go-cart motor capable of driving at 38mph, four-link rear suspension with coil-over-shocks, a brand new battery, leather seats, and so much more. Plenty to make even the caped crusader happy.
Now, we're not suggesting you're up to anything nefarious, but given the proper tools, there are few locks that could keep the determined man from entering. Whether you have a frequent problem locking yourself out of your apartment, or you're getting into something a bit more sinister, the Gentleman's Bogota Lock Picks ($35) are exactly the tools you need to gain entrance just about anywhere. Made to pin discretely under a lapel, collar, sleeve, or hat, these lock picks are light, yet sturdy, made from high-quality, precisely-cut stainless steel — so they'll never let you down in a pinch.
Whether you're tearing something down, or building something up, there are few tools more handy than a reciprocating saw — and the DualSaw Dual Blade Reciprocating Saw ($200) takes your standard reciprocating saw and turns it up to 11. As the first and only dual blade reciprocating saw, the DualSaw will make quick work out of just about any cutting task. With the ability to cut at two stroke lengths, it is the safest, smoothest cutting reciprocating saw available. It has less kick back, better stability, less vibration, and better control than any other reciprocating saw you can find.
You're already pretty well-prepared for the inevitability of the dead one day walking the earth — you've stocked up on canned foods, you've hoarded all the ammunition you could ever need, you've even made steps to fortify your home — but if you don't have physical strength, there's no way you'll ever last. With Onnit Zombie Bells ($40-$153; 10% off today only for Cyber Monday) (available in weights ranging from 18 to 72 pounds) you can build up the brawn you need to resist the hordes of walkers. Each one features a distinct zombie facade, and is made from perfectly-balanced, chip-resistant iron with enlarged handles giving you improved grip strength. Just remember when the time comes to remove the head or destroy the brain. And if that fails, you can always pull their heads off with your new-found muscles.

Odds are, you've dreamed of having the ability to fly unaided, soaring above the rooftops effortlessly, only to wake up and realize that you're still bound to the ground. With the Martin Jetpack ($100,000 and up), you can fly to altitudes of up to 800 feet, at speeds of nearly 50 miles per hour, for as long as thirty minutes — and while that doesn't quite meet your dream of flying without help, it's the next best thing. Built on top of a V4 engine that produces 200 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque, and capable of flying with a pilot or remotely, this jetpack is also built with safety in mind. A ducted fan, easy-to-use controls, a composite airframe built for strength, and a deployable parachute makes it nearly as safe as walking.
As part of their 2013 athletics collection, the Killspencer Speed Bag ($1,250) features all the American-made craftsmanship you expect out of a Killspencer product, in the form of a well-made boxing accessory. Perfect for staying fast, strong, and sharp — or just looking great in your apartment — this speed bag features high-quality workmanship, with stitched black leather construction, a welded black steel pyramid frame, and a walnut ply disk platform. So, even if you don't use it to keep yourself looking great over the winter months, you can at least rest assured that it'll make your space look better.
Chances are you've been there — setting up a tent in a storm, in the dark, after a long drive, or a day of hiking — when the last thing you want to do is bother with clumsy poles. The Kelty Mach AirPole Tent ($300) eliminates the frustration involved with setting up most tents, thanks to its inflatable AirPoles. All you need to set it up is the included dual-action floor pump, which lets you set the tent up in under a minute. That way you can do what you really want to do: get comfortable and relax. The tent accommodates four campers comfortably, easily deflates when it's time to pack up and go, and has plenty of useful features like a vestibule, integrated rainfly, and double zippers.
Turn your iPhone or iPod Touch into a fully-functioning instrument with the Auug Motion Synth ($70) — a combination grip for your device, eight-button synthesizer app, and a cloud-based service for sharing synth presets. These combine to form a highly-capable synth instrument that lets you easily control music using the app's keys, and the motion of your hand, changing pitch and tone as you move. Use each of the buttons to play notes, control external synth hardware, even apply effects to your vocals. The grip lets you comfortably hold your phone, while interacting with the buttons, so you can play naturally, moving freely around the stage or studio.
Whether you're a beginner just learning to play guitar, or a seasoned veteran who has seen his share of road gigs, the Roadie Tuner ($80) is just the tool you need to perfect your craft. This automated robotic tuner will literally tune your guitar (or any other stringed instrument with geared pegs) for you, thanks to its sensors that are three times more accurate than the human ear. It will tune your guitar faster than most experienced players, helps you wind and unwind your strings, and will even let you quickly switch between tunings. Use the included iOS app to remember tuning settings, save custom tunes, visualize your tune, and keep track of the quality of your strings.
The One World Futbol ($40) is about as unique a ball as they come — nearly indestructible, this ball never needs to be pumped up and never goes flat, even after it's been punctured. Sponsored by Chevrolet, this ball is not only made to last, it's also made for a great cause. For every ball you buy, a child in need somewhere in the world also gets one, giving them the teamwork and joy that comes from participating in sports. It's the perfect ball for playing on the beach, on the field, or in the gym. And it benefits a great cause. That sounds like a win-win.
