With a compact, modular body and insane low light capability, the Canon ME20F-SH Camera is likely to become your go-to rig for filming anything after dark. Thanks to a special 2.2MP full-frame sensor with 19 μm pixels and proprietary readout circuitry, it can shoot full-color 1080p video in lighting of less than 0.0005 lux, or at a sensitivity equivalent to over ISO 4,000,000 (no, that's not a typo). It's compatible with the same lenses you use on your Canon DSLR, and offers a host of pro-level inputs and outputs to support a variety of setups and shooting styles.
It looks like an orb from the future. And in some ways, it is. Built to capture virtual reality-ready video, the Nokia Ozo isn't actually round — it has a handle around back so you can hold it or set it on a tripod. But you wouldn't know it from the video it captures. Using eight synchronized global shutter image sensors and eight integrated microphones, it shoots stereoscopic 3D video, with software for real-time viewing and playback without the need to pre-assemble the image. It's your Oculus Rift's new best friend.
No apps. No camera. No nonsense. Designed by Jasper Morrison, the Punkt MP 01 Phone is meant to put the spotlight back where it belongs: on calls and messages. The 2-inch LCD display — protected by Gorilla Glass — is ideal for dealing with SMS messages, and the built-in noise cancellation ensures that your conversations sound great. It does have Bluetooth, since handsfree systems are handy, but without the need for a bevy of other radios, battery life is fantastic, and the soft-touch paint finish and angled back plate make it a pleasure to hold.
You never know when your power's going to go out. But with the new Candle Charger, you're sure to stay charged and connected to what matters - family, friends - after the grid goes down.

Conveniently, the water is also boiled and sterilized during the process, so whether you're worried about the quality of your tap water or just want to make some tea or coffee the Candle Charger will get you there, no grid required.
