Scandinavian-inspired teardrop trailer blurs the lines between indoors and out

Lounging in the Droplet teardrop trailer

Teardrop trailers are a nice compromise for those that want to spend a lot of time outdoors but prefer a little extra nighttime comfort while there. Simple, spartan interiors keep you motivated to get outside and stay there the whole day and tailgate galleys force you to cook under the sky. But at night, you enjoy the softness of a mattress and the security of four walls - no leaking or flapping tent fabric or poking rocks and twigs to deal with. Canadian start-up Droplet further enhances this mix of indoor-outdoor living, offering a teardrop with large, wide doors and picture windows to keep you connected with the outdoors even while you're in bed.

Review: Continental's surprising Road Attack 3 sports-touring tires

Continental Road Attack 3's haven't put a foot wrong yet, despite my best efforts

Just about anyone who's been riding for a few years gets a strong sense of what they like and what they don't, and I have to admit, I've never really considered Continental hoops as an option. That's not all my fault – Continental has never enjoyed huge marketing support in Australia, where I live. In fact, this is the first time the company has launched a tire in forever down under. So while it's the second biggest brand in Europe, they haven't caught on so much over here – but that could be about to change.

Its latest trailer carries more than just cookware and camping gear, shouldering an ATV, side-by-side or dirt bikes for a serious weekend (or full week) of fun in the desert or mountains.

Genetic kill switches keep engineered microbes from going AWOL

A demonstration of the Cryodeath kill switch: the top row are bacteria growing at four different ...

Bacteria can be great little workhorses, engineered to make better batteries, clean up waste plastics, combat cancer and even produce oxygen for the first human settlers on Mars. The problem is, we don't really know what the crafty critters could do if they were to ever escape from their intended environments – and let's face it, they probably will. To keep the bugs in check, scientists from Harvard's Wyss Institute have developed two types of "kill switches" that can be embedded in their genomes.
