Always On premieres right here on CNET on June 19, at 11 a.m. Pacific/1 p.m. Eastern. Check out stills from the first few shoots, including flying autonomous helicopters, a solar-powered race car, and more.

Decided to train for a half marathon so I could compare the Nike Fuel Band and the Fitbit Ultra. This is the start of my first training run. Not my smartest move, to sign up for that on camera!

The good news is, I fit inside the car. Getting one last safety briefing before I head off into the sunset. Well, not the sunset, since it's solar...you know what I mean.
