The AntiShanty RTD debuts as a dual-function, hard-sided vehicle-top shelter

Over the past decade or so, the term "RTT," short for rooftop tent, has pushed its way into the everyday vernacular of all kinds of outdoorsy folks. AntiShanty looks to make the related "RTD," rooftop dwelling, an official entry in that same dictionary. With solid aluminum walls in place of fabric, the new product isn't really a tent. And with the ability to carry nearly 800 liters of gear to camp before immediately transforming into an SUV-top backcountry bungalow, it's something very different from anything out there.

Once available, the Halo Rise will be priced at US$139.99

While there are already a number of sleep-tracking systems to choose between, many of them are made by small startups without much of a track record. Electronics giant Amazon has now thrown its hat in the ring, however, with the unveiling of the Halo Rise.

Following a successful product launch in Taiwan, the Tairona pico projector has been upgraded for its international release via Kickstarter

While sizable all-in-one projectors like the Aura are great for movie-watching at home, taking them into the wilds to provide entertainment at camp or even the yard can be a little awkward. This is where pico projectors tend to shine, and the latest to appear on our radar is the Tairona.

Located in a picturesque spot in rural Canada, the dwelling is raised 10 m (almost 33 ft) above the forest floor and features a very compact interior that ensures the focus is on the beautiful view.

Blainjett believes its extraordinary hemi-rotor drone concept will deliver unprecedented power, speed and efficiency thanks to its unique propulsion systems and airframe

Blainjett's fascinating hemispheric rotor concept is a totally unique and left-field approach to VTOL flight. The company (no relation to me, for the record!) came up with the bones of the idea while working on the Horizon eVTOL hoverbike, which we covered back in January, and trying to solve the problem of how to generate lots of efficient vertical thrust without taking up large amounts of space or exposing bystanders to fast-spinning propellers.

Hubble has been orbiting the Earth since 1990

The Hubble Space Telescope was launched in 1990 with an expected lifespan of around 15 years, but servicing missions and upgrades have seen it continue to gather important science observations to this day. NASA is now exploring how it can remain operational even further into the future with the help of SpaceX’s Dragon capsule, which might be used to dock with the telescope and shift it to a more stable orbit.

As part of its exploration of the Jovian system, Juno is also inspecting one of planet’s largest moons in Europa, and has this week swooped in for its closest look yet.

The Nano e-scooter parked up

Vietnam’s Bandit9 has dropped a new two-wheeler into the e-scooter pond it’s not quite like anything we’ve seen before. Part urban mobility solution and part fashion statement, the shiny, stainless steel Nano e-scooter looks like it was plucked straight out of sci-fi movie set in outer space, but could be coming to the streets of Earth sometime in the not so distant future.
