Pat’s Backcountry Beverages
Much to the lament of most hikers, beer is too heavy to schlep into the backcountry. Pat’s beer concentrate solves this problem adeptly. Instead of evaporating a finished beer’s water, the company quadruple brews its concentrate, preserving the hops and other aromatics that impart flavor. When paired with seltzer (the company sells a $30 CO2bottle that carbonates any potable water), a 1.7-ounce packet makes a pint of refreshing pale ale. $9.95 for four packets

Turtle Bot Will Help Underwater Archeologists

Sure, there are plenty of UAVs and ROVs and other underwater robots. But these deep divers tend to be large and bulky, and can be something of a bull in a china shop. For that, the ARROWS project has turned to the adorably named (and equally cute-looking) U-CAT.
ARROWS is an EU-funded project that focuses on creating underwater vehicles and technology to help lower the cost of underwater archeology. When divers explore sites, it’s expensive and time consuming. But a robot—as is the case with most of our mechanical friends—can do it cheaper and more efficiently, and can explore more dangerous sites. The small, agile U-CAT specifically has locomotion similar to sea turtles, with four flippers that are independently driven, allowing it to move forward, backward, up, down, and turn on the spot. The robot’s camera then transmits images from the site back to humans on the surface.
