Mirrorcube

Look closely and you'll see your hidden home away from home. The Mirrorcube ($377,000) is a nearly-invisible treehouse that truly blends in with nature. Built with exterior walls made from reflective "spyglass," the pre-fab structure reflects its surroundings to become almost undetectable. (An infrared film, invisible to humans but visible to birds is placed within the glass to stop kamikazes.) Designed by Scandinavian architects Bolle Tham & Martin Videgård, it's got a wood and aluminum body, and comes complete with restroom, queen-size bed, and Goonies-esque rope bridge.

  • Burton Mix Master Gloves

    It wasn't long after the iPod's debut that winter sport enthusiasts realized that controlling the thing with gloves on was a real pain — and they've spent the last ten years coming up with ways to get around it. The Burton Mix Master Gloves ($160) represent one of the smartest solutions we've seen, integrating controls into the glove that communicate reliably with any iPod or iPhone over an RF connection. Of course, they also need to be good gloves, so they pack a waterproof Dryride Insane Membrane, a Gnar Guard leather exterior, microfiber lining, and a Pistol Grip pre-curved fit that increases dexterity while ensuring warmth.

  • The Cave Tent

    A tent is only as good as its frame, and unfortunately that means most solid structures also require a lengthy setup process — but not so with The Cave Tent ($670). Built around an Inflatable Diamond Grid airframe made up of five modular, double-layer air beams that inflate in less than a minute, the Cave offers incredible durability, and also features an outer tent of waterproof polyester, and inner tent made from light, breathable water-resistant nylon, a non-see-through mosquito net, a robust ground sheet made from waterproof polyester, multiple sown-in bags for gear, and enough room for 2-3 humans inside.
