We were wholly unaware that Audi was developing something for Mars, but apparently they’ve done something up that looks like its space-rover ready. Unveiled at IAA 2019 the buggy-like electric off-roader concept rides high on 22-inch all-terrain tires but is actually intended for earthly adventures. The vehicle has four electric motors with 320-kilowatts of battery power , and the range aims for up to 310 miles on smooth pavement and 155 miles on dirt. Other than the suicide doors, huge side windows, hammock-style rear seats, and the floating fenders, the best part of the AI:TRAIL is the completely radical Audi Light Pathfinders headlights composed of five rotorless, triangular, electric drones with integrated matrix LED lighting elements. The drones can even land on the AI:TRAIL’s roof or automatically dock in their chargers. The idea behind them is to fly ahead of the vehicle to transmit video into the AI:TRAIL’s cabin about the upcoming terrain or simply illuminate the road. Autonomous Level 4 driving is also a feature that allows driverless capability in a pre-defined area, but we’d want to helm this bad boy ourselves all day long.

In a world where gadgets are judged on how well they do their jobs despite being available in the smallest packages possible, the Hunt23 Ultra Compact Flashlight reigns supreme. They took all the life-proof features of the incredibly bright Hunt22 (iceproof / smashproof / waterproof / fireproof) and upgraded the titanium body with a tiny pry bar on the back that can be used as a flathead screwdriver or to open boxes, bottles, bags and cans. It’s also TSA-compliant so you don’t have to worry about traveling with it. This flashlight is the EDC tool you’ve been missing.
