Whether it be zombies, robots, or giant mutant guinea pigs, be prepared with the 72 Hour Emergency Survival Kit ($100). This stylish kit includes a 5-in-1 hand-crank flashlight, 2400 calories worth of food, a prepaid phone card, a hygiene kit, waterproof matches, a sleeping bag, a complete First Aid kit, duct tape, an army knife, and more. In other words, pretty much everything you'd need (minus the booze, of course).
Record whenever genius strikes with the Ovation iDea Guitar ($600). This iPod-like acoustic/electric guitar can both record and play MP3s, letting you save your jam sessions or rock along with any song. The iDea's built in preamp has a pitch-stable speed adjustment allowing you to slow down MP3 tracks for easier learning. On-board USB lets you quickly transfer recordings and songs back and forth.
