With the proliferation of hybrid cars, you can bet that pretty much any gas-powered anything will soon be available as a hybrid. Take, for instance, the Raven Hybrid Riding Lawn Mower ($3,000). This impressive lawn tractor creates over 7,000 watts of electricity, features self-charging technology so you won't be doing any battery swaps, and can run for up to 12 hours on a single tank of petrol. It still needs to cut grass, of course, and for that it has a 46" quick-release cutting deck, ATV-style shocks for cutting on rough terrain, the ability to pull loads of up to 500 lbs, and a top speed of 17 mph — perfect in case you find yourself in a life-or-death lawnmower race.
Whether you're just getting into the every day carry lifestyle or are simply tired of your current mis-matched gear, Gerber GDC Tools ($TBA) are coming to help. This lineup of keychain- and pocket-friendly tools includes a zip blade (think utility knife), a driver with Phillips and flat head drivers, a hex driver with 5 metric bits, and LED light/bottle opener, a striking black pocket knife, and a hook knife, all designed to look good together while playing nice on the same keychain.
Let's see: you need both hands to do an activity, you can't mount a light anywhere nearby, and you'd like to avoid the dorkiness of a head-mounted solution. Sounds like you need the Snow Peak Lapel Torch ($60). This compact, water-resistant LED light uses a magnetic clip to attach to pretty much anything — a shirt, a backpack strap, you name it — and is powered by a remote battery pack that connects via a 28-inch cord and can provide up to 140 hours of light.
