GO-FAST CAMPERS

The lightest popup models on the market yet able to set up in just seconds, Go-Fast Campers are made for those who don't want their camper deciding what trail they take. It weighs less than 200 lbs, thanks to a steel space frame, aluminum hardware, and honeycomb composite floor and roof panels. When popped up, it provides 94" of standing room, and sleeping room for two 6'6" adults. The floor is also modular, letting one person get out while the other sleeps, providing added space for singles, or serving as a couch. Made in Montana and available for 1995 and later Tacomas, 2015 and later Colorado or Canyon trucks, or 2009 and later F-150s — including the Raptor — with 5.5- or 6-foot beds.

There's a meat probe for checking temps without lifting the lid, and an included cast iron griddle for cooking up camp-worthy breakfasts.

The designers of Kazbrella patiently developed their product, focusing on some of the common problems umbrellas have, while maintaining the shape and feel you're already used to. The Kazbrella is drip free — opening upwards instead of down, keeping your floors dry after it's neatly closed. That same design allows you to close it quickly and neatly when you're walking inside or hopping in the car. And since it's double spoked, it will stand up to strong winds, but even if it does blow inside out, getting it back to it's more helpful shape is as easy as a push of a button.

MOLEKULE AIR PURIFIER

Don't just remove the pollutants from your air — destroy them completely with the Molekule Air Purifier. The world's first purifier to operate on a molecular level, it uses technology called Photo Electrochemical Oxidation to clean the air. Air enters the machined aluminum cylinder at the bottom, passing through a pre-filter to catch larger particles before hitting a nanoparticle-coated filter that when activated by light generates a chemical reaction that breaks pollutants down into their harmless components. As a result, it can destroy airborne chemicals, bacteria, mold, viruses, and allergens 1000 times smaller than traditional HEPA filters, leaving you with nothing but clear, healthy air.

SOLAR ENERGY’S GREATEST CHALLENGE

More electricity produced by solar panels sounds like it's a win-win proposition. But with the current structure of our power grid, solar energy actually causes a problem. Called the "duck curve," demand for energy dips when solar energy production is at its highest, potentially causing damage to the grid. Which means some solar panels are shut off at their peak production, causing energy to be wasted. Find out the details in this explanation from Vox.

WHY DC SUPERHERO MOVIES DISAPPOINT

For the people that grew up reading DC comics, the current state of DC superhero movies leaves a lot to be desired — especially when compared to Marvel's dominance in the genre. You could almost describe DC movies as being too comic book-ish, with convoluted action sequences, a disregard for physics, and extra-campy dialogue. The Nerdwriter has a few common-sense suggestions for his beloved DC universe in this video essay that compares and contrasts their efforts with Marvel's movie juggernaut.

TOP DAWG HOT DOG MACHINE

Seriously step up your tailgate game just in time for football season with the Top Dawg Hot Dog Machine ($135).

BAMFORD MAYFAIR WATCH

Taking a cue from car dealerships, Bamford Watch Department last year built a "Service Watch" that was lent out to clients while their timepiece was in for maintenance. People loved it and wanted to purchase one for themselves, so the Bamford Mayfair watch was born. Measuring in at a classic 40mm size with Military Grade Titanium Coating (MGTC), the watch is available in two versions — one with a matte grey case, anodized aluminum bezel, and leather strap, and one with a more sinister black case, matte ceramic bezel, and rubber strap. Both watches' indices and hands are finished in LumiNova for legibility and are powered by a Quartz Miyota 2035 movement. The Mayfair is your daily driver. Your vintage Rolex is the one that stays in the garage except on special occasions.

WHY CARS ARE MORE SAFE NOW THAN EVER

There was a time when car safety was an afterthought. No airbags, seat belts, crumple zones — just a bench seat, steel dash, and non-collapsable steering column were all that you had to stop in the event of an accident. Ford offered optional lap belts in the 50s, and in 1959, Volvo introduced the first three-point seat belt. Since then, the odds of surviving have increased exponentially, and with driverless cars on the horizon, the most unsafe thing in the auto might be gone completely.
