A modern individual is thought to rely entirely on gadgets such as smartphones or laptops, but that is a far cry from the facts. Below are some tools that could really rely on a person’s life.
11. A venom extractor
The pump kit for the Sawyer extractor will help you remove the venom left by insects or snakes. The name says it all: It is an efficient, convenient vacuum pump capable of extracting venom from a wound. The kit includes, in addition to the pump, a comb, clean tissues, and Band-Aids.
10. A pocket slingshot
The Pocket Shot lets you fire a range of projectiles, from metal balls to stones or bolts, with just a little effort and hardly any special abilities. Only place your projectile in the sling of rubber, pull it back, aim for your target and release. Great for catching small game. And what’s more, you might easily make yourself one! Here are the guidelines.
9. An anti-attack ring
This Go-guarded anti-assault ring would fit perfectly with active women who enjoy biking, walking or jogging alone, particularly before sunrise. It can be worn on any finger and can be easily removed if there is a sudden attack. Go Guarded has a jagged edge that increases the chance a person has to fight off an unexpected attack with success.
8. A self-propelled float lifesaver
U-Safe is a smart, electric-engined float with remote control. It is designed for use on ships and in teams of coast guards. The remote control helps you to direct the float to a person who has fallen overboard and got it safely to the shore or the hull of the ship. Developers are also planning to add a multiple-person alternative and increase the travel distance.
7. A shark repellent
Sharkbanz is a must-have app for divers and surfers. Only fasten the bracelet on, turn it on, and it will start emitting ultrasound signals that will make you an unwelcome target for sharks. By the way, even if you are not going to get acquainted with sharks, it is still quite interesting to follow the Instagram account of the company.
6. An alarm ring
“Your true guardian angel is Nimb,” say its makers. All in all, it’s a simple concept that you can click easily and discreetly from a portable alarm button. The warning is sent to the smartphones or to a rescue service of your close ones. Those with chronic illnesses and night walk lovers will enjoy this unit. And as a side note, it seems pretty trendy too.
5. A multifunctional key ring
There’s nothing too complicated here – just a collection of important tools and that’s it. But in many extreme situations, this tiny beast will get you out. It consists of nine tools including a hammer, a flashlight, a strap cutter, an alarm beacon and a few more. We do hope you won’t need them at all, though.
4. An emergency beacon
Rescue Me Balloon designed to mark people’s place in distress. It is a small orange box which you can easily take on a hiking trip with you. Tear the cap out to mark your spot. An air balloon climbs 150 ft (45 m). The balloon will flicker at night, due to a light ring that accumulates solar energy throughout the day.
3. An external antenna
A trendy tool, goTenna can support you when there’s no use in mobile networks. The device allows users of smartphones and tablets to stay online even when no connection exists. This establishes a private network that lets you send messages and your GPS coordinates up to 50 miles (80 km) with the aid of low-frequency waves.
2. A universal water filter
Anyone who’s been in the wild knows the drinking water problem is important. The Sawyer charcoal filter lets you filter any water quickly, making it perfect for drinking. The compact shape not only helps you to use it as a bottle extension but also to drink directly from the water body.
1. A charming protector
CAMP / y is built for anyone who likes camping with a tent and a cosy fire. This cute “beast” watches over critical parameters nearby using its sensors. It can detect wild animals or humans, a gas leak, a weather change and a number of other factors. The data is sent to a smartphone, and the app will sound an alarm in case of danger. Furthermore, CAMP / y can serve as an electronic mosquito repellent within a radius of 6 feet (2 m). Important know-how!
