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.

Indulge in the Seductive Splendor Bora Bora

I had just taken off my sandals, stepping onto the white-sand beach for a late-morning walk to a secluded spot I heard about from a front desk clerk, when I glanced down and saw the time on my phone. It had just turned 11 a.m., which meant it was only 7 am back home, the perfect time to call and say good morning to by husband before he left for work. Not quite ready to head back to my room, I decided I’d test the WiFi signal and made the call as I continued walking toward the shoreline.
