Farmers work extremely hard. With the Case IH Magnum Autonomous Tractor, they can work a bit less. This concept vehicle, developed in collaboration with Autonomous Solutions, lets farmers take care of tasks like seeding, planting, and tilling, all without hopping behind the wheel. A simple tablet interface lets you set boundaries, plot paths, and set things in motion in less than 30 seconds, and you'll get a notification should it avoid any obstacles — using a combination of radar, LiDAR, and cameras — or run out of fuel or seeds. In addition, you can control multiple tractors at once, and with carbon fiber front fenders, black and red rims, and LED status/running lights, this robotic crop tender looks good, too.

The price is jaw-dropping. So is the sound. The idea of a standalone music player might seem prehistoric, but the Sony NW-WM1Z Walkman Music Player makes a strong case for its continued existence. It has a gold-plated, oxygen-free copper chassis that reduces contact resistance and magnetic interference, and an intuitive touchscreen interface. But the real magic happens on the inside, thanks to a dual clock circuit, 384kHz/32bit recording, Quad DSD playback when used with a balanced connection, DSEE-HX signal processing, and a robust FT CAP power supply to improve low-end performance. Just remember: to sound its best, it's going to need a better source than your library of torrented MP3s.
Combining their GPS knowledge with a powerful sensor, the Garmin Virb Ultra 30 Camera lets you capture 4K video alongside tons of data. Using a combination of sensors, it records the distance, speed, and altitude of your adventures, while at the same time grabbing 30fps footage. A powerful microphone allows for voice control, a touchscreen LCD makes reviewing your shots easy, image stabilization keeps your cuts steady, and one-touch live streaming over Wi-Fi lets you share your adventures in real-time. Arrives with a rugged waterproof case.
