Camping's a blast. That is, until your sleeping bag turns into a sweat-soaked biohazard, the massive boots rip up your feet and a weak headlamp sends you stumbling through a patch of poison oak.

Meaning you can devote your energies to something important. More s'mores anyone?
Five amazing, clean technologies that will set us free, in this month's energy-focused issue. Also: how to build a better bomb detector, the robotic toys that are raising your children, a human catapult, the world's smallest arcade, and much more.
