Texas motorcycle-maker Jason Wonder’s Wonder Bikes are simple, elegant machines; modern classics that pack today’s technology into old school finery. The Bobber’s hardtail frame, sprung girder front end, and stripped down look are powered by the reliability of a new H-D Sportster motor. In other words, it is roadtrip ready.

Well, now there’s Sony’s new digital binoculars that capture 3-D full-HD video and big, bold still images. They also feature built-in GPS for geotagging your rare bird images or whatever you might shoot.
Yes, making your own homemade salsa is a bit more involved than pouring it out of a jar, but not much.

Whether you’re off on a camping trip or partying in the parking lot, the big game is pretty tough to watch on your phone. Dish Network just answered your prayers with the release of their portable satellite TV unit, aptly named the Tailgater. Put it in park and place your bets.
No, not the new BMW. This racy little roadster is actually a portable grill from upstart German BBQ maker Brennwagen. With its high performance German engineering and stainless steel body, it looks ready for a few laps at the Nürburgring, but really, it’s built for blazing bratwurst.
Years ago you ditched your big, boxy TV and upgraded to a flat screen. So why are your poor pet fish still swimming around in a tank from the 70s? They’d surely be happier in a sleek, new wall-mounted tank. And it’s not just good for the fishies, it’s good for you.
