Unique Gifts for Any Holiday
Ever want to drink dirty water from a toilet? Yeah me neither! However, if you had Lifestraw, you can do it. The company behind the straw has a mission in place to help provide the world with drinkable water from wherever you can find, thus aiding the locations in the world where water is scarce.
Award-winning LifeStraw technology was originally introduced in 2005 as an emergency response tool to filter water contaminated following natural disasters.
Just insert the straw into the water source and utilize it like a syringe, and magically you now have drinkable water.
Even if you aren’t in a desert or a waterless place, perhaps you are a hiker and often encounter lakes, rivers, and other water sources. The Lifestraw will be able to provide you with a solution to drink clean water in a jiffy. It’s also a great thing to have in case of an emergency due to the size of it, and a bonus is that there are no batteries or electronic components.
Other facts about the product are that it is BPA free, you can wash it in a sink (not washer recommended), and for each one, you buy that company gives water to students in need. They also don’t recommend utilizing the straw (or their other products) in a pool since chlorine is a potent chemical and may not be filtered out. So best use it on natural water substances. As mentioned the company does offer several other products like a filtered water bottle, and a steel version of the straw (if you’re into cooler looking version)
Sure you can even try filtering out water from your toilet…but on second thought, maybe that’s not the best idea (unless we are in a nuclear apocalypse and that is our last source of h20)
If you want to stick lights in your ear and gain energy you should try the HumanCharger, a unique electronic device that utilizes headphones, instead of producing sound, these headphones provide light. The makers behind the instrument have researched and proven that a device like this could boost your energy even when you are tired.
The HumanCharger will begin to work approximately 12 minutes after utilized. Relief of jet lag exhaustion is the result! One question we had off the bat was, “is it safe?” Because this device gives off no UV Rays, the light is designed to be completely free of any health concerns.
Want to gain the power of seeing through walls?
Imagine, some wiring running behind your walls has short-circuited, but you don’t know exactly which one. You have to cut open the section for a grueling fifteen minutes only to discover that the wiring is just fine, while it is some other wiring in your wall that is giving you the trouble. Good luck guessing.
In another scenario, you are driving down an interstate while it’s pouring rain. You can’t gauge the speed of the vehicle right in front of you because of the torrential rains. Whether you slow down or maintain speed, it’s a steep valley of troubles on both the sides. What possibly can you do?
In both these cases, you could have prevented the frustration and disaster if you had a sensor to read the situation and help you take the right decision.
To be elaborate, Walabot is a sensor system hardware platform that is composed of antennas (anywhere between three and eighteen) and an onboard processing unit that computes the data input sent by the sensors. Walabot can help you understand aspects of the physical environment around you.
You can attach your smartphone on a Walabot and let it do its job. Walabot gives the power of super handyman to an average Joe, who doesn’t need to carry sophisticated equipment around to read data.

7: Bluetooth Key and Wallet Finders
A problem that has plagued most people has a solution. The problem is that people always tend to lose their keys! Catch the showStranger Things? Even one of the leading characters loses their keys in the second season during a significant event! The answer is an essential Bluetook Tracker and Finding Device.
Luckily, there are quite a few options when it comes to the marketplace for such a product. Here are the two best solutions we have found! The concept for these two is simple. Attach the device to an essential piece of luggage, set of keys, or even a pet. Once the product is linked to your Smartphone via an app (provided by the company), you can ring the Bluetooth device or utilize the Smartphone to find the Bluetooth device. Yes, that right you can use these tools to find your phone as well!
This company has been around and innovating in this space since it’s inception. You’ll find small or more significant Tile Bluetooth products. For example, you can purchase a Tile product so slim that it will fit in your wallet. No more losing your credit cards!
Trackr is another option that is similar to the Tile app but is a tad cheaper. Sure you won’t find the quality of the interface you get from Tile, but at a lower price, you get the necessary tools to get tracking properly.
XY Find it
Looking for a unique option? XY Find it a smaller business that even allows you to invest in it! ThiBluetoothth tracker offers similar features including a time stamp of when andwhere you last placed your Bluetooth device down. Also, you’ll be hooked up with an extra battery making the invention last almost twice as long as a Tile device!
How Can You Be From a Bluetooth Tracker?
Some Bluetooth trackers can track an acre of several thousand feet. Look at it this way. However, it’s Bluetooth and not it’s own wireless network. Bluetooth works well within a few feet of your smartphone. For example, Bluetooth headphones lose connection when you are only a few steps away from the smartphone or paired device.
With Bluetooth trackers, the signal is always on and will try to connect to your phone when it’s close, that’s the difference between the headphones and these types of trackers.
