Take the guesswork out of your grilling with the Lynx Smart Grill. This voice-activated wonder automatically cooks your food based on your commands, linking to an online database to determine ideal cooking time and temperature for each ingredient, going so far as to tell you where on the grill to place everything to ensure that everything's done at the same time. Even better, it can send you text notifications when your food's ready, so you're free to entertain/watch the game/drink a beer while it takes care of the cooking. The only downside? It's not coming out until 2015.
Some days call for a slimmer carry than your everyday load out — forcing you to leave behind the junk that typically bulks up your pockets — but that doesn't mean you should leave the house completely unprepared. With the Gerber Blade Money Clip you get a portable alternative for carrying a few cards and some cash with a small built-in knife that would make a boy scout proud. Made from a titanium-nitride-coated steel body with a G10 front plate, this money clip is capable of holding up to five cards at a time. The blade slips into the money clip, disguised by its less than four-inch length, and it still manages to weigh less than a quarter of a pound.
For something so comparatively small, it's a wonder how much space a lawnmower actually takes up in your garage or shed — forcing you to squeeze around its handle every time you want to get at something you have stored. But the Toro Recycler SmartStow Mower is collapsible, letting you store it on its end and reducing its footprint dramatically. Improved seals and gaskets throughout the motor stop fuel and oil from leaking when you store it vertically, so you don't have to worry about spills. With front-wheel-drive, variable self-propel-speed, a 22-inch deck, as well as bagging and mulching capability, it also mows as well as it stores.
For the most part, we haven't seen much change in the basic idea of what a sleeping bag should be — an insulated tube with a side zipper — but the Sierra Designs Backcountry Bed changes things in a big way. Completely doing away with the side zip (or any zipper for that matter), this bag opts instead for a comforter-like blanket covering an oval-shaped opening at the top of the bag. This design lets you slide in comfortably, while using the comforter to hold in your body heat, or moving it for ventilation. Coupled with polymer treated 600-fill down that resists moisture ten times longer than typical down, and what you get is a versatile alternative for comfortable sleeping that pushes the envelope more than anything since the mummy.
With the Yoder Frontiersman Smoker your backyard barbecues, family gatherings, and legendary tailgates will never be quite the same. The moment you roll this beast of a smoker off your trailer — or out from your garage — conversations will stop, gazes will be drawn, and mouths will begin to water. Weighing in at nearly a ton, this massive cooker will swallow up entire pigs, thanks to its gigantic smoker and dual grilling surfaces. Its fat tires and heavy-duty black rims help support the thing, giving it just the right amount of portability, while a built-in heat management system gives cooks the kind of control they've only ever dreamed of.
Why go out and shovel your own driveway when you can get a robot to do it for you? Like an all-weather outdoor Roomba, this Robot Snow Plow takes care of an unpleasant chore while you relax. This six-wheeled unit is powered by six 127 RPM motors, and features an aluminum chassis, a Spektrum DSMX DX6i remote control, 13" tiller tires, 80W headlights for visibility even in the dark, two 55 amp batteries, and a 52" wide plow blade that can make short work of even the longest patches of pavement.
If there's one constant to cooking in the outdoors, it's fire, whether it comes from kindling or a portable stove. Barocook is looking to change all of that. This smart little system uses small packets that react with water to provide steam heat, which is then used to cook your food or drinks. Your food cooks in its own stainless steel bowl, making clean up a snap, and allowing you to cook everything from soup and instant noodles to curry, rice, meatballs, pasta, and even boiled eggs — anywhere you might be.
We don't have to tell you that your truck is a powerful tool — maybe one of the most useful things you own, depending on how you use it — but there's always a way to get just a little more out of it. With the Decked Truck Bed Organizer, your truck just got a lot more useful. Keeping everything you carry in your truck perfectly organized and easily within reach, these customizable truck bed organizers are made to handle all your gear, while still giving you space in your truck bed for hauling. Built to fit like they came from the factory, designed to be easily installed, and made to last, you'll wonder how you ever got by without it.
So you want to ride your motorcycle during the winter, eh? Well, you'd better start planning a trip for somewhere warm, or outfit your ride with a Snow Bike Kit. Available in short track, long track, and snow cross models, this unique add on replaces your rear wheel with a spiked track that plows through ice and snow with no problem, and your front wheel with a ski-like apparatus that is far more useful for steering than a thin traditional tire. In addition, it also adds storage space, so you can bring along some cold-friendly gear — like coffee, blankets, and whiskey.
You don't bring back a name like Big Bertha unless you've got something really new & exciting. Adjustable weights, adjustable lofts, adjustable face angle — it's all been done before. But an adjustable center of gravity? Now that fits the bill. And that's exactly what you'll find on the Callaway Big Bertha Alpha Driver. Like most adjustable drivers, the Alpha offers an adjustable hosel for for changing the loft and face angle, and movable weights for further launch adjustment, but adds a Gravity Core that allows you change the vertical center of gravity independently of everything else — giving you yet another way to custom-fit the driver to match your swing.
Okay, so maybe it took its design direction from the bizarre lovechild of a traffic light and a razor scooter, but that doesn't make the Urb-E Scooter any less of a practical way to get about town. With a 20 mile range on each charge, and a top speed of up to 15 miles per hour, it's a great way to make your commute just a little easier to handle — and since it can fold up small enough to fit onto a bus or train, you can take it pretty much anywhere. Available in two models, you can choose from the three-wheeled Commuter or the two-wheeled GP, depending on whether you prefer stability or a touch of adventure.
Typically, flashlights are made to do just one thing, whether it be spotlighting, searching, or lighting your way underwater. The Gobe Flashlight is designed to do all those and more. Thanks to a unique body that works with a system of six interchangeable light heads — two spotlights, a wide-angle light, a red light, a searchlight, and a light for use underwater at night — and a wide range of accessories, it's up for nearly any task. And you don't have to worry about packing a bunch of AAs around, either — its compact, water resistant body holds a USB-rechargeable battery that's good for up to 54 hours of runtime.
