It's a great time to be alive and an outdoorsman/woman. SteriPen has just released an incredible new gadget called the SideWinder (via Gearlog). This baby uses a UV light to kill all the nasty little critters that tend to infest running water. No batteries are needed to run this futuristic water purifier; a hand crank powers the light.

Once the job is done and the water is clean, a green light will pop up on the front. The SideWinder will launch in September for $99.95. As cool as this sounds, I'd wait a month or two to hear from the early adopters before buying one. Impure water is NOT something you want to take a chance on.
