Today in Gear: the 2015 Range Rover Sport SVR, a Puppy Crib, Sony’s first curved TV series and more.



Wall-Mounted Standing Desk
Sitting down for long periods of time is overrated. And unhealthy. The new standing desk by Gereghty Desk Co. has a wall mounting spine and two adjustable desktops. Ideal for viewing a laptop at eye level (whatever your height) while the keyboard rests comfortably below, it’s available in two stains of wood. $245

Anti-Gravity Pack by Tessel Supply
Inspired by the cosmos, this modular magnetic backpack has four components: a pack, pencil case, laptop case and accessory bag. Made from 420D coated nylon, it easily doubles as a duffel bag since each of its compartments are functional with or without the rest of its Anti-Gavity family.

Puppy Crib
Big guys have a soft spot for small dogs. This new dog hammock easily holds a dog weighing up to 30 pounds. Made from soft lamb’s wool, it’s machine washable and attaches to any chair or end table with non-slip straps. Basically, it’s a space saver that’ll get a dog bed out of your path to the bathroom in the middle of the night.

2015 Range Rover Sport SVR
If the standard Range Rover Sport just isn’t fast enough for you, the SVR model should satisfy your thirst for speed. The 550 horsepower supercharged V8 engine will launch the sporty SUV to 60 in 4.5 seconds and to a top speed of 162 mph.

Sony Bravia S90 UHD TVs
They’re a little late to the game, but who cares? Sony will be launching the S90 series, its first curved TV line with 4K resolution. Paired with a new 4.2-channel multi-angle Live Speaker System, edge-lit LED backlights, a removable Skype camera and active 3-D, Sony’s first try at the bowed TV might be the market’s best. ()

Pro-Ject MaiA
This high-end integrated amplifier is able to handle high-resolution audio at up to 24-bit/192kHz, making it perfect for people who blast hi-fi music at home. With nine inputs, it easily pairs with a turntable, laptop, CD player and more. It also connects wirelessly with its built-in aptX Bluetooth. And at around $670, it’s a great bang for your buck. $670
