Today in Gear is our daily roundup of all the latest product announcements, drops and news from Gear Patrol Studios.
Last week, Apple tapped Lamborghini's chassis guru Luigi Taraborelli to help bring its self-driving electric car to life. Taraborelli will bring 20 years of experience at Lamborghini to the table, and is expected to lead the design on ‘Project Titan.’ Earlier this year, Apple also brought on Desi Ukashevic, another big brand veteran with 31 years of experience at Ford, to lead its vehicle safety efforts. Now, the team includes hundreds of former engineers from brands like Tesla, Volvo, Mercedes-Benz and more. The company has announced that it hopes to introduce its self-driving EV around 2025. The car will feature a ‘limousine-like’ interior with two rows of seats facing each other – and no steering wheel or pedals. Beyond that, not much else has been announced about the mysterious car, meaning we will have to wait and see how this plan unfolds.
Today we’re looking at new releases from Junghans, Moncler Grenoble and Goose Island. This is Today in Gear.

For those unfamiliar, each year Goose Island releases its coveted Bourbon County Stout in partnership with one – or several – of its favorite distillers. Now, for the 30th year anniversary, the company is releasing a full lineup that is sure to drive barrel-aged fans wild. In total, Goose Island plans to release seven variants including a Biscotti Stout, Coffee Stout, standard ‘Goose Island County Stout’ and a 30th anniversary bottle entitled ‘Goose Island Bourbon County 30th Anniversary Reserve Stout.” Fans can expect to shop the entire lineup later this year, just in time for stout season.
For those who have dreamt of towing an airstream on your favorite bike treks – prepare to make that dream a reality. Maxmess Design recently launched an aluminum, bike-friendly caravan you can tow with the help of any standard e-bike. In total, the caravan weighs 48.5 kilograms (~107 pounds), but this weight includes all of the caravan’s standard features like a mattress, 30 AH power bank, adjustable fan and a full system of LED lighting. Inside, fans can stare up at the stars through a sky light and rest easy in the fully-insulated cabin. Outside, users can harness additional underbody storage compartments, pop the door open for added shade and set up a solar bank. The caravan is currently available at special summer pricing (€4,450.00 or ~$4,561) but will soon increase to €4,850 (~$4,971).
