If you’ve spent any time on the internet in the past few days, you’ve probably seen Something on wordle. Simply put, the online game gives players six tries to guess a five-letter word. That’s it that’s all; a free game without ads or paywalls. However (because we can never really have nice things) other developers take advantage of the fact that wordle – a browser-based game – has no official app, creating copycat games that contain various microtransactions or ad-free “premium” modes. While Apple would have suppressed wordle thanks to the internet outcry, it’s a reminder that not all App Store apps are necessarily what you’re looking for at first glance, especially if that thing has recently gained popularity. In short, if you want to participate in the wordle craze taking hold of your timeline, be careful to play the real deal. Aside from the games dominating the timeline, we have plenty more in store today. From dumbbells that swap weights to the sound of your voice (!?) to Leica’s updated M11 camera, it’s Today in Gear.

The Exod Monolith Tent is a four-season floating shelter for one person.
Built to be the most versatile shelter on the market, the Exod Monolith inflates in 15 seconds thanks to the inflatable tubular exoskeleton that frames the tent. Although you can put the Monolith on the ground like a normal tent, its eye-catching design also allows it to “float” above the ground, thanks to the carbon alloy telescopic frame and 16 feet of webbing. If nothing else, at least Exod’s teaser video for the Monolith looks pretty cool, and that has to count for something.
