We have little desire to take a city tour on one of Segway’s mall cop-approved vehicles. Donning the helmet and slowly navigating urban blocks isn’t exactly our idea of fun. Taking a city tour in Segway’s latest vehicle, however, is absolutely up our alley. That’s because that new device is an electric go kart with great acceleration and the ability to drift. Packed with two motors, the adjustable go kart hits 12 mph from a standstill in just 2 seconds. Okay, so that’s not exactly Tesla’s Insane Mode, but it ain’t too shabby when you’re an inch off the ground. Designed for kids and adults alike, the go kart is adjustable and offers enough space for anyone 4’5″ to 6’3″. A handbrake serves as a backup should the electric brakes fail, but that’s really not what we love about it. What we love is that handbrake lets you drift once you get the timing and feel down for pulling it on a turn. You can even use an app to see your speed, range, and other data in real-time, though you probably don’t want to look while you’re drifting passed someone. You can back the project on Indiegogo and score your own for $1,149.

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.
