Slingshot With Laser Aiming Is Cool, But Try Not To Knock The Laser Out

I have an idea for a better aim with slingshot. Mind you. When we talked about slingshot, we are not talking about the Y-shaped contraption fashioned out of a branch of a tree. Definitely not those used by Dennis the Menace, or Bart Simpson. We are talking about metal projectile shooting contraption worthy of a hunter, complete with arm brace, powerful rubber bands and maybe even a laser pointer like the Assolar SS-12 Multi-function Hunting Laser Slingshot you see here. More on my idea later. First, we talked about Assolar SS-12 Multi-function Hunting Laser Slingshot. Continue reading Slingshot With Laser Aiming Is Cool, But Try Not To Knock The Laser Out

BioLite Broke Conventional Lantern Design By Going Flatpack

If you camp often, you will notice that lantern is the one thing that’s hard to pack. Lanterns are mostly cylindrical and therefore, it consumes precious space and that’s not to mention after all the effort of packing it in, you get crazy dim light out of it which is pretty ineffective in pitch dark night. This is where BioLite BaseLantern wants to make the difference. Billed as the world’s first flatpack lantern, BaseLantern broke lantern design tradition by going flat instead of cylindrical. It lights up on both sides leveraging on edge lighting technology, providing up to 500 lumens of illumination and has an integrated folding stainless steel stand which can also doubles as a carrying handle. And did we mention it looks pretty fabulous too? Continue reading BioLite Broke Conventional Lantern Design By Going Flatpack

This Sleek Tube Is Actually A Survival Kit For Surviving A Natural Disaster

Folks living in peaceful and relatively natural disaster-free regions may not understand what it takes to survive the nature’s wraths, but to Japan, it is a second nature when it comes to dealing with the inevitable unleashed by Mother Nature. In view of this predicament, hardware manufacturer Sugita Ace and design studio Nendo, both Japanese companies, have come together to create a new type of emergency preparedness kit called Minim+Aid Survival Kit. Minim+Aid comes in a form of a sleek tube designed to enable an individual urbanite to make his or her way to a place of refuge during natural disasters such as an earthquake.

BioLite SolarPanel 5+ Packs 2,200 mAh Battery, Charges Phone In 2 Hours

Portable battery is great, but if you are expecting yourself to be out of the grid for prolong period of time, solar charger is the way to go. However, you are probably not going to go for just any solar charger; you will one that maximizes your charge. Such is what BioLite Solar Panel 5+ has to offer. To ensure you get the most out of the sun, there’s an integrated sundial to aid in aligning the panel to the sun, so you’d be capturing direct rays.

This ‘System’ Discretely Turns Pee Into Drinking Water Anytime, Anywhere

So you think Amazon sells some of the weirdest stuff on the Internet? Well, wait till you read about what Etsy seller Ultra Violet Production House has to offer: a concealed urine-to-drinking water conversion kit. UV Production House touts itself as a store that “provides customers with high quality sculpture materials and fabrication guidance for all original works.” That being said, we are not even sure if the Discrete Urine-to-Drinking Water Conversion System, as it is called, is just a work of art or a real working thing, given the lack of information on the product page. Continue reading This ‘System’ Discretely Turns Pee Into Drinking Water Anytime, Anywhere

You Won’t Believe How Many Tools The Tactful Pen and Tool Packs

A pen is a pen. It lets you write stuff and occasionally, if the situation calls for it, stabbing a walking dead in the eye. Then again, it can never write again with the zombie’s goo all over. Not with the Tactful (Tactical) Pen & Tool by JP-Tac, though. The Tactful Pen is crafted from 6041 aircraft-grade aluminum and boasts Fisher Space Pen refill, which don’t need to sacrifice when a zombie comes limping at you; there’s a tungsten steel glass breaker for the job, which rightfully, is designed for breaking glass, but it will gladly take an eye off a zombie if the needs arise. Continue reading You Won’t Believe How Many Tools The Tactful Pen and Tool Packs

TUSK Survival Knife Also Packs Multi-tool For More Survival Options

A knife should not qualify as a survival knife if all it does is to cut. It should be able to do more, like splitting wood when there’s no axe at your disposal, start a fire, chopping and hammering, and maybe even do some wrenching job when situation calls for it. If those are the things you look for in a knife (yes, knife), then you may want to take a look at TUSK Universal Survival Knife by Loyal Blades. Shape like a mini-machete, TUSK is a 12-inch full tang knife with a 7-inch fixed blade that’s almost entirely handcrafted from 0.20” thick 440c stainless steel and features polished black linen Micarta with handmade rounded borders that offers a tactile feel and sure firm grip.

Bomber Firestarter Paracord Bracelet and Paracord Keychain

A lighter is an essential item when heading into the wild, but in case you are not comfortable with carrying a mini fuel tank around, perhaps the good’ol flint and steel combination may be the way to go. More so, if the said flint and steel comes with a survival paracord braided into a convenient to carry and uber stylish bracelet or keychain, like Bomber Barrel’s Firestarter Paracord Bracelet and Keychain with Carabiner. The Firestarter Paracord Bracelet’s flint and steel also serves as the bracelet’s ‘clasp’, which is actually a pretty clever idea, while the cord itself is of emergency paracord offering 550 pound strength over its 3 meter length.

If There’s Only One Tool for Survival, The Lil Trucker Would be it

Most multi-tools should work fine at home or at most job sites, but if you need to do more like, for example, stopping advancing zombies on their tracks, well, look no further than The Lil Trucker. It’s creator calls it the ultimate multi-tool, but it really is the ultimate survival tool. Innovation Factory, the folks behind Lil Trucker, is just being humble. Not that the zombie shorts (which you can find below) has any influence on us, but with a hatchet blade right on top of it, you’d know that apart from chopping up firewood for the night’s warm, the blade there can do a whole lot more. It is a survivalist’s tool that packs over 10 functions including can opener, folding saw, glass breaker, strap cutter, pry bar, hammer, hex wrench, spanner, wire twist and more.
