Forget about those cumbersome kayaks you've got to strap on top of the car or drag around on a trailer. The era of the foldable kayak is here. When folded, it slings over your shoulder like a messenger bag, at the ready in case you stumble across an unexpected stream you want to explore.
Hey, guess what, tomorrow it's going to be 68 degrees! How 'bout that! If you know what 68 degrees feels like off the top of your head (or adjacent to any other body part), you're a far wiser person than I, 'cause such numbers don't convey much in the way of useful information.

The Mithril Kevlar Jacket is a softshell jacket made with Kevlar, that synthetic material you'll find in bulletproof vests. It can withstand pretty much anything you throw at it.
In the heat of summer, many New Yorkers fantasize about swimming in the East River, but none will do so due to how straight-up disgusting the water in the East River is. But a new project aims to change that.
Paintball guns are great, but they make a big mess, what with all that paint. And water guns are great, but you don't get the satisfaction of shooting bullets. Well, this gun fixes all that.
