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.
MOPHIE UV SANITIZER
California-based Mophie combines wireless charging with a UV sanitizer in this well-designed device that will keep your stuff free of germs. 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.
BRILLIANT HOME CONTROL PANEL
This all-in-one smart home control from California-based Brilliant promises to stop you from switching between separate apps by letting you control smart devices in one place. Setup is easy: Simply replace an existing light switch with the panel according to Brilliant’s instructions, and then you can control your smart lock, thermostat, music streaming services and many more devices. Amazon Alexa is built in, and you can use an accompanying mobile app when you’re away from the panel. $299.
NETGEAR MEURAL CANVAS II
Bring the world’s most famous artists into your home with this digital display from Netgear. The California-based company offers two different sizes of screen and an expansive library of art that you can buy à la carte, and it looks textured like it would on a real painting, thanks to patented technology. Set up playlists of different artwork using an accompanying app, or add your own photos to show off your skills. From $399.

As a peripatetic traveler, I am always trying to balance the pleasures of dining well with a life-long challenge to control my weight. It’s not always easy, because I consider tasting typical, authentic regional dishes among the highlights of most journeys, and those foods are rarely known for “healthful” rankings! So, I started staying at spas way back in the 1980s — before they were ubiquitous — because meals were assured to be pure, clean and wholesome.
