Using .02 micron medical-grade hollow fibers, the MSR Guardian Water Purifier removes viruses, microbes, contaminants, and other particulates from even the nastiest of water. Its unique design automatically back-flushes 10% of its water with every pump, meaning you never have to manually scrub it, and it's also surprisingly durable, standing up to both freezing environments and drops of up to six feet. It can clean up to 2.5 L of water per minute, and since it's rated for over 10,000 liters before it needs a filter change, it might just be the last filter you ever buy.
It used to be that if you wanted a military-style vehicle, you bought a Hummer. Now, you procure an Oshkosh Joint Light Tactical Vehicle. Recently awarded a huge contract to replace much of the Army and Marine's legacy Hummer fleet, this lightweight tactical vehicle comes in two- and four-seat variants, uses the battle-tested Core1080 protection system to keep the occupants safe, and has a Tak-4i intelligent independent suspension to traverse rugged terrain, with 20 inches of wheel travel and the ability to raise or lower the suspension as needed from inside the vehicle.
With the Model S, Tesla proved that all-electric cars can move fast. The Porsche Mission E Concept proves they can charge fast, too. This yet-to-be-greenlit looker is powered by a pair of motors producing a combined 600+ hp, good for a 0-62 time of under 3.5 seconds, and a world first 800-volt drive system that allows for incredibly fast charging, as in an 80% charge, or enough to go nearly 250 miles, in just 15 minutes. The car promises to handle well, with both all-wheel drive and all-wheel steering, and despite the sleek design of the aluminium, steel, and carbon fiber reinforced polymer body, still offers four full doors and four single seats. All that's missing is a release date.

You wouldn't be surprised to see James Bond behind the wheel of a British sports car, but it's one of the baddies casing 007 who'll be driving the Jaguar C-X75 when Spectre hits theaters. This concept car was created for the company's 75th anniversary, hence the name, and was originally powered by four electric motors outputting 778 hp, with a pair of micro gas turbines for recharging. The on-screen version is powered by a supercharged 550hp V8 instead, but still features the original's muscular build, and while you might not be able to buy it, you can see its influence all over the lineup of real-life Jags, as well as in the latest Bond adventure.
There are better cassette players, and there are better turntables. But none of them can match the versatility of the Ion Duo Deck USB Turntable & Cassette Player. This highly portable rig can playback your mom's mixtapes and the vinyl your dad used to make them, with built-in speakers making it an all-in-one affair. Of course there's a output jack if you want to crank it up with external speakers or listen privately through headphones, and thanks to the included software, you can hook it up to your computer and rip both formats straight to your digital library.
Born from the aftermath of Katrina, the Exo Shelter is meant for use in an emergency but versatile enough to handle everything from festivals to long-term camping. The sleek design separates into two pieces — a floor and an upper shell, both of which weigh less than 400 lbs each and can be moved by hand — and is stackable, making it easy to transport to the setup location. Inside, there's space enough for four people with beds that fold out of the walls, four wall outlets for charging gadgets, LED lighting, and climate control. Entry is handled via NFC, and the LED display above the door makes sure you don't try wandering into someone else's pod.
Big ideas, tiny space. The Akrafjorden Hunting Lodge is just 35 square meters in size, but can sleep up to 21 people thanks to a smart design that places the beds in a circle around a central fireplace, allowing them to double as seating during the evenings. The cabin itself is built from two curved steel beams joined by a series of hand cut logs that form the front and back walls, as well as the roof. The roof is covered in grass and the front facade in local stone, helping it to blend into its remote location beside a lake in the western mountains of Norway.
Just a few steps from being condemned, the Cumberland Street Townhouse by Ensemble Architecture is a great example of a rehab gone right. As a result of water leakage, the entire rear wall of the house was replaced, and a two-story addition added that includes two-story steel and glass windows that open to the backyard garden. The space is also open to the living room above, and the master bedroom opens onto a second-floor terrace, adding to the indoor-outdoor feel of this formerly dilapidated space.
Windmills are a great way to harness green energy. Unfortunately, they typically require a permanent place to sit. The Trinity Portable Wind Turbine Power Station is different. Designed to fold up and move with you, this family of windmills is usable in breezes of as little as 4 mph, water and weather resistant, have an automatic stop feature, and built-in batteries that let you store the energy you generate. Available in sizes ranging from the highly packable, smartphone-charging 50 to the home-powering 2500.
Formed by three rectangular prisms stacked on top of one another, the Concrete Cut House by Pitsou Kedem Architects appears as though it's built from a continuous line of concrete — hence the name. The two-story main living space is surrounded by glass panels, letting the it flow naturally into the garden and pool area, while two separate staircases give access to the children's living area downstairs and the upper levels that house the bedrooms. Stark white cabinetry in the kitchen sets the stage for equally spartan decor throughout the Israeli home, letting the various plantlife and wall of media storage provide splashes of color.

Rod Emory has been modifying 356s since it was considered crazy to do so. People called him and his father outlaws. That legacy — and name — is reflected in the Emory Porsche 356 Outlaw. This modern take on the classic sports car looks largely the same but has been upgraded with new accessories and trim, parts borrowed from more modern Porsches, and a handful of performance upgrades. The result is a car that's more fun to drive than any of its all-original counterparts, while looking as good if not better than all of them.

007's love of Aston Martins is well known. The Aston Martin DB9 GT Bond Edition celebrates the storied secret agent's choice of ride with a number of subtle-yet-classy enhancements befitting of the world's most famous spy. The exterior is finished in an exclusive Spectre Silver livery, with sterling silver Aston Martin logos and edition-specific badging, while inside, there are numbered sill plaques, gun barrel embroidery, and a special start-up screen. Performance-wise, the car is identical to the standard GT, with a 6.0-litre V12 engine pumping out nearly 540 hp, a Touchtronic II six-speed transmission, a 0-62 mph time of just 4.5 seconds, and a baddie-evading top speed of 183 mph. Limited to just 150 examples, it arrives with a limited edition Omega Seamaster James Bond watch with an Aston Martin strap, and a matching 21" Globe-Trotter case.
Cook and warm up from the comfort of your tent with the Frontier Plus Camp Stove. This versatile, portable wood burner features a large flue that allows the stove to be safely used inside a variety of shelters, including teepees, tents, and even small cabins. The glass window provides a view of the flames, the front-mounted air control lets you easily control the temperature, and the large removable top plate lets you cook with multiple pans at once while still allowing for direct heat when needed. And since the entire thing — including the flue — breaks down and packs away inside the body, it's no hassle to carry it to and from wherever you need it.
Building off of a base like the iconic Land Rover Defender is a nice head start, but the upgrades and attention to detail added to this Overfinch Defender SVX make it even more desirable.

Included are LED daytime running lights, grille and lamp pod detailing, Weir Cherry leather interior, and Overfinch accessories, pedal set and control pack to help let it blaze any trail. And the specially commissioned teak wood storage box with white chalk decking is the icing on this already enticing cake.
For those that grew up in late '70s and '80s, the graphic designs of NASA are some of the most memorable of the period, appearing on everything from hats to the Space Shuttle. This reprinting of the NASA Graphics Standards Manual celebrates this outstanding identity system, which was used from 1975 to 1992. Recreated from the personal copy of one of the original designers, it covers the logo, placement, and color schemes that helped capture the imagination of a generation and make the American space agency a lasting, iconic part of our legacy of exploration.
