Wired sees a distinct lack of cool high-tech outdoor gear, and gives its favorite examples of steps in the right direction:
- The Cocoon, a hanging teardrop-shaped tent/sleeping bag.
- The Adamant, an earthquake-proof bed.
- The Bedu Emergency Rapid Response Kit, a keg full of enough essentials to keep a family alive for up to 5 years.
- The Urban Skiff, a portable sailboat.
- The Firun Inflatable Sled, a snowsled that folds down into a backpack.
- The Life Saver, a water bottle with a built-in carbon filter.
- The Hydran Turbine, a wind generator that uses its power to thaw snow into drinking water.
- The BCK, a hotpot that works by focusing the sun’s energy.
- The ACR Microfix, a small personal GPS locator beacon.
- The Campa All Terrain Unit, a customized mobile trailer crammed with survival tools.
