Apparently, Ford wants to make your life more convenient and scare the crap out of you at the same time with their package delivery robots that fold up inside autonomous vehicles. Digit is the new teal bot whose feet look like non-threatening versions of The Terminator’s Skynet T-800. The Detroit carmaker has partnered with Agility Robotics to develop this solution for “last mile delivery”, otherwise known as getting packages directly to your door. The impetus behind this research is the sheer volume of package deliveries, up substantially due to the increase of online sales. Digit can carry up to 40 pounds, walk stairs, negotiate obstacles, and probably frighten your otherwise courageous dog. What’s more, it can communicate with the transport vehicle and even the cloud for optimal delivery logistics to minimize complications. This just might be the future of package delivery, but it could very well be overkill just so you can get your Viagra refills.

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.
