Grizzly Robotic Utility Vehicle

It doesn't much matter what the job is — if it can be done via robot, it can probably be done with the Grizzly Robotic Utility Vehicle ($TBA). This rugged machine features an articulated front axle and 26" ATV tires for conquering uneven terrain, a modular interface for connecting a wide range of implements, a flat surface area of over one square meter and a payload capacity of 600 kg or well over half a ton. It also boasts a secure storage area for sensitive objects, vehicle-wide Ethernet and USB, and support for the Robot Operating System so you can program it to do pretty much anything you want. [via]

  • Lumoback

    You know you should sit with proper posture, but how do you know if you're actually doing so? By strapping on a Lumoback ($150), that's how. This wireless Bluetooth sensor is worn on your lower back, and gives you vibration feedback when you're slouching. In addition, it also connects to your iPhone or iPad, so you can track your activities throughout the day and get a more well-rounded picture of of how you — and your back — are doing.

  • Alpaca Travel Guitar

    We're not 100% sure where you'd be traveling that you'd need all the ruggedness of the Alpaca Travel Guitar ($575), but we are sure that if you do need it, you'll be glad to have it. Handcrafted in Vermont from carbon fiber, flax fabric, and bio-derived resins, this waterproof instrument features a headless neck, a soundhole near the forward part of the body, an embedded daisy chain on the back for connecting it directly to any outdoor gear — think backpack or rucksack — and a three-point strap system.
