The future of land transportation is wide open. EVs, autonomous vehicles, remote-controlled vehicles, you name it. This unique travel-friendly four-wheeler is known as the Land Rover BackPacker, a concept created by German transportation designer Edwin Senger that “is inspired by the necessity of reduction in today’s consumerist world.” It’s minimalist but still quite slick with its open-wheel design, airless tires, and crazy tent canopy that allows its two occupants to experience the outdoors while driving, sitting, or sleeping. The seats slide and also fold flat for a truly versatile car. It even provides storage, refrigeration, cooking, and toilet modules that dock behind the seats. It has four-wheel drive and looks like it has electric propulsion based on the fact that there doesn’t seem to be room for a combustion engine and the lack of visible exhaust ports and driveshaft. Right now, it’s just a rendering and a small physical model, but it could point to a real vehicle someday.

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.
