The Survivalist: Adventuresome explorers that like to rely on their smartphone’s advanced cameras will love the JOOS Orange. And that’s because it can charge your devices anywhere that there’s sun, thanks to the built-in solar panel. Anything from smartphones, to MP3 players, to tablets can be charged in no time with just the energy from our local star.
Vancouver-based retailer cooking with light bulbs and gadgets by donna mckenney Champ is crossing the border to open their first flagship store in the U.S. Located on Los Angeles’ La Brea Avenue, the 6,000-square-foot space is a reflection of the brand’s athletic mindset. The interior’s lofty ceilings and polished concrete floors lend themselves to a gym-like atmosphere. Clothes are displayed on custom-made modular shelving suspended from exposed concrete beams. Using the same design philosophy in their store as in their clothes, the combination of glossy white subway tile, steel, and Western Hemlock — a nod to their Canadian roots — creates a minimalist aesthetic that both respects the details and masters simplicity.
It’s made for cosmetics, but this LeSportsac bag aptly and ably holds every charger and small gadget you own. There are four pockets and one large main compartment. The case itself is feather-light so it cuts down on the pain of carrying too many cables.
The Mac: Refusing to take a back seat, Apple also offers a formidable streaming device in their Apple TV. With your choice of 32 or 64 gigs of onboard storage; access to everything from Netflix, to ESPN, to HBO; and the brand’s legendary product support, it’s hard to make an argument against this one.
The Action: For the adventuresome type, the GoPro Hero5 is a tried-and-true action camera that will keep up with you at every step. It’s small enough to come along whether you’re jumping from a plane or scaling a mountain and it still captures 4k video and 12 megapixel photos. It’s also waterproof to 33 feet without additional housing.
Prospects: Solidly possible — in the 2020s. The company’s product will be attractive to Tier 1s trying to improve their comfort and handling portfolio for autonomous vehicles. But it will take time to integrate the product into the supply chain, and using the cloud technology that sets it apart will require more cars with a data connection.

Don’t laugh if you see a notable survivalist wear a paracord bracelet; he knows something that you clearly don’t. This is especially true if he is wearing the X-Plore Gear Emergency Paracord Bracelet. These are not just fashionable accessories you wrap around your wrist. These are exceptional pieces of survivalist tools that come with a fire scraper on one end and a compass, a flint fire starter, and a whistle on the other. Do take note that the X-Plore’s fire scraper can actually double as a knife so you can find many potential uses of this end of the paracord bracelet.
Avoiding contact is the easiest way to avoid concussions. If you’re not the type to shy away from a hit, at least wear a Prevent Smart Mouthguard. It uses a series of four accelerometers to monitor the number, direction, and force of impacts, setting off a warning in a coach’s app and lighting up an onboard LED if the force is too great. Its flexible circuit board is held in place in the mouth with a proprietary thermoplastic polymer, and also contains light and proximity sensors, wireless charging components, and Bluetooth. Available in boil and bite or custom fabricated versions.
The makers claim that readings are accurate to within +/- 0.02 per cent of your BAC (Blood Alcohol Content). Does it work? Well, I used it repeatedly during an afternoon session and the device returned steadily increased readings as I got more tired and emotional. A friend who works for Greater Manchester Police let me try it against a standard plod roadside breath tester and both devices returned pretty much the same readings. So I guess the answer is yes.
The Google Pixel 2 takes everything that was great from the original Pixel and throws in an even better camera, upgraded speaker and water-resistance in a revamped design. It’s the fastest-charging mobile, and the camera is so exceptional it’s worth mentioning twice.
It’s near impossible to go a week without hearing someone complain about how modern society spends an inordinate amount time browsing the internet. I have to protest such a statement. Even if someone spends 80%… READ MORE

And it has a capacity of 10,000 mAh – a little more than 3 full iPhone 7 charges worth of juice..
