DAMON HYPERSPORT HS
This fully electric motorcycle boasts 200 horsepower, a 200 mph top speed and 200 miles of range, plus a swath of safety features designed to keep you safe on the road. A bike that can get you from 0 to 60 mph in less than three seconds might sound like a risky proposition, but the Canada-based firm spent years developing a system called CoPilot. It uses cameras, sensors and artificial intelligence to track moving objects around the bike and alert the rider to collision threats using warning lights on the windshield and haptic feedback in the handlebars. $24,995.

Simply place your phone or other items into the pod and wait just five minutes for the UV light to kill 99.99 percent of common surface bacteria. Research suggests the device could also be effective against coronavirus, but the FDA reports insufficient evidence to back the claim thus far. $79.95.

Hôtel des Grands Voyageurs Review
