It also includes a compass (but let's be real, you're more interested in using it to drink some booze).

Get it here.

20. The world's smallest hydropower plant.

21. A fish-finding sonar device.

A wireless sonar device that will keep you from going home from a fishing trip empty-handed. It reveals the location of those sneaky fish, will work in depths from 1.5 feet to around 130 feet, and gives you a detailed view of the terrain of the bottom of the body of water you're fishing in.

25. A shower that you transport on the roof of your car.

You can take a shower wherever you want! Of course, you probably shouldn't (unless you want to be arrested for indecent exposure), but when you're out in the woods, go for it!

Get it here.

26. A combination tent and hammock.

Why sleep on the ground when you could swing from the trees? There's even a pocket to hold your beer!

You don't want to go without a pillow, but they take up so much room — rest your head on one that inflates!

Get it here.

28. A waterproof lighter.

The Exotac will protect your lighter from water even if you get caught in a downpour or swept away in a river (let's hope that neither of those things happen, but at least you'd be able to light a campfire if they did).

Get it here.

29. A camper you can use as a boat.

Ditch your apartment, sell your house, and spend the rest of your life in one of these things. Done.
