GSI Mini Outdoor Espresso Maker

As part of humanity's continuing mission to make any and all creature comforts of modern life available in even the most remote areas, we bring you the GSI Mini Outdoor Espresso Maker ($20). This miniature stovetop brewer is made from aluminum for even heating and a light carrying weight, and makes double shot servings in just 90 seconds — or less time than it takes to simply place an order at your favorite coffee house.

  • Spot Connect

    When you're (way) off the grid and need to check in with family, call for some anti-venom, or just update your Facebook status, make sure you're packing the Spot Connect ($170 + $100 year). This small, waterproof brick pairs with your smartphone to hook you into the Globalstar satellite network so you can send messages and GPS coordinates from just about anywhere on Earth. It currently only works with Android-powered phones, but support for other devices is coming later this year.

  • Eton Raptor

    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]
