The standard Tacoma is one tough truck — but if you're trying to make it to the South Pole, you're going to need something a bit beefier. Something like this Toyota Tacoma Polar Expedition Truck. Built specifically for that purpose, this truck made the run to the South Pole and back in just under 40 hours. Special features include a supercharged 4L V6 engine, a specially-tuned transmission, a suspension and undercarriage from Marconi, a steel body, four racing seats, an engine heater, upgraded batteries, a solar panel, and seven (!) fuel tanks with a total capacity of roughly 330 gallons — so while you won't have to fill up often, it's going to be brutal when you do.
Snorkeling is a great way to take in the sights and sounds under the sea without the need for bulky scuba equipment or certification. But it does have one big drawback: you either get used to breathing solely through your mouth, and keeping your head high enough that no water comes in, or you deal with water in your mouth and fogged up goggles. Unless you're wearing the Easybreath Snorkeling Mask. This revolutionary mask fits over your entire face, allowing you to breathe normally underwater without fear of fog, and features a dry-top system on the top that plugs the air intake when immersed, preventing water from entering.
We've got smartphones and smart watches — so why not smart headphones? Dash Smart Earphones are indeed smarter than your standard pack-ins, and almost all aftermarket cans, as well. Thanks to a host of sensors, they can track your pace, steps, cadence, distance, heart rate, oxygen saturation, and energy spent, relaying the information back to your devices via Bluetooth. They use the same connection to act as wireless headphones, and thanks to a built-in ear bone microphone, can serve as a headset, as well. Forget your phone at home? Not to worry, as they also feature 4GB of storage and a built-in music player, so you're never without your tunes.
Owning a firearm for protection isn't the worst idea in the world, especially depending on where you live. But figuring out where to store where it's easily accessible by you and not by anyone you wouldn't want to have it — kids, angry spouses, drunken houseguests — can be a challenge. Unless you have the Gun Box. This stylish handgun storage box is made from aircraft strength aluminum alloy, and offers either a biometric fingerprint scanner, a RFID scanner and matching wristband, or both, that allow access to the gun inside. And since it's designed to live on a dresser or nightstand, it also features dual USB ports for charging up phones and gadgets, a Kensington lock port, optional GPS for added security, and mounting holes if you're looking to give it a permanent home.
There's nothing better than waking up to the smell of freshly-cooked bacon. Now you can enjoy that experience every morning with Oscar Mayer Wake Up & Smell The Bacon. This simple device plugs into the bottom of your iPhone, and works in parallel with a specially-designed app to release the unmistakable scent of premium bacon at the selected time, making everyday — whether it's a work day or the weekend — a little bit easier to face.
Most of the time you think of beekeepers as living out on large farms, tending to their hives with crazy hazmat-style suits on. With the Philips Urban Beehive, you can become your own beekeeper — with the bees living inside your own house. This stylish concept consists of two parts: an entry passage and flower pot that sits outdoors, and a glass shell inside. The tinted glass shell filters light to let through the orange wavelength the bees use for sight, and holds an array of honeycomb frames inside. When it's time to harvest some honey, just pull on the smoke actuator chain and grab some out while the bees are happily sedated.
Privacy may not be your chief concern when you're browsing the web — but it probably should be. Each time you venture out onto the web, you're vulnerable, because each site can access your IP address, giving them the ability to find your physical location. With Safeplug, you can feel safe on the internet again, browsing anonymously and securely. It works using a service called Tor (already well-used by foreign journalists and privacy nuts alike), which routes your internet traffic through a series of random locations, making it impossible to determine where you are. All you need to do is plug it into your router, set it up, and in about a minute you'll be basking in anonymity.
Your bike doesn't need to be armed with grappling hooks, armor-piercing cannons, and machine guns to pull off the Dark Motorcycle Helmet — though it definitely wouldn't hurt if you were cruising on something resembling the Batpod. No, this helmet is made for the not-quite-average guy with a penchant for the unique (even if he doesn't spend his nights fighting crime). Molded from a proprietary elastomer material, this DOT-approved full face helmet features interchangeable clear and tinted visors, and flexible points at the top for a silhouette that's sure to get a few looks. Removable liners and adjustable vents help keep things cool, while multiple vents reduce fog and keep you comfortable.
Some days call for a slimmer carry than your everyday load out — forcing you to leave behind the junk that typically bulks up your pockets — but that doesn't mean you should leave the house completely unprepared. With the Gerber Blade Money Clip you get a portable alternative for carrying a few cards and some cash with a small built-in knife that would make a boy scout proud. Made from a titanium-nitride-coated steel body with a G10 front plate, this money clip is capable of holding up to five cards at a time. The blade slips into the money clip, disguised by its less than four-inch length, and it still manages to weigh less than a quarter of a pound.
Whether you're prepping for the eventual downfall of humanity, you're a serious survivalist looking for an addition to your bug-out bag, or you're just a collector of bizarre weaponry, you need the Survival Slingshot. This multipurpose weapon accommodates normal slingshot balls, as well as full-size arrows — thanks to its folding whisker biscuit — so you can target shoot, bow fish, and hunt small game. Its rail system allows it to hold an included flashlight, as well as a range of additional attachments, while a compass and a waterproof storage area make it a versatile tool for handling the toughest situations nature throws your way.
Already known for their design contribution to the likes of Ferrari, Pininfarina is synonymous with beautiful, luxurious aesthetics. But now they'll be known for something a little bit different — the Pininfarina Cambiano Inkless Pen. At first glance, the design is unmistakably Pininfarina, with an elegant shape, handcrafted in Italy from aluminum and wood. But the design is far from the most impressive aspect of this pen. Its ethergraph tip allows it to write forever, without the need to ever refill ink. This tip gives it the precision of writing with a sharp pencil, with effortless strokes, while also leaving a permanent mark like your former favorite pen.
They're far better known for the sports and race cars, but believe it or not, Lotus can come up with a pretty slick two-wheeler, as well. The Lotus C-01 Motorcycle is a perfect example. Designed by Daniel Simon of Bugatti and Tron: Legacy fame, this ultra-limited bike (only 100 are being made) features a slick, lightweight body, a two-cylinder, four-stroke 1,195cc engine putting out 200 horsepower, and paired with a six-gear transmission. While we don't have performance numbers yet, considering it weighs under 400 pounds, we're expecting it to be really, really fast.
