Seven kilograms of pure utility, the Beetle was a joint production of the engineering polymaths at Dorty & Dorty and the head gastros of Belstrom's restaurant empire. Frontal mandibles allow hands-free processing delicate enough to savor karmin pinkgrass, but bulking enough torque to crush a prongshell. The headpiece contains a hefty battery and dual banks of data gelatin necessary for long excursions in the field (though it may test the tensile strength of your spinal ligature). Not to mention the cartridge player that lets you spin the Collected Works of Dorty Dorty. "First Footsteps in the Fringe" is a must; "Dining with Father" close behind, and a surprising source of insights on Dorty Dorty's manufacturing principles. It doesn't get better than this. Ask around.
