After the Fall: Bug Out Bag Essentials Checklist

Whatever name you use, they all mean essentially the same thing: A kit that is ready to go when, as the doomsday preppers say, the Shit Hits The Fan (SHTF). It’s meant to be your one stop survival kit for emergency situations. Made specifically to be carried on your back and keep you alive for 72-hours or more. The whole purpose of the Bug Out Bag is staying alive, but in order to do that, it needs the essentials. Beginning with The Mighty Bag itself, we’ve run down the food, gear, equipment, and even the technology that you’re going to need during the critical juncture between hunky-dory civilization and Mad Max level anarchy.

Tutorial: Build Autonomous Drone - Depth Estimation, Octomap and Path Planning : Quadcopter. Auction Block: 1971 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40. It’s not every day that we come by an FJ40 that exceeds our expectations, and even more rare when that legendary platform is over four decades old. The prominent vehicle reseller, Bring a Trailer, recently listed an impeccably-kept 1971 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 with enough upgrades to satiate even the most parched 4×4 enthusiast — and with only 21,000 miles on the odometer, it stands apart as one of the best-looking examples we’ve ever seen. The FJ40 in question was purchased by the current owner as a partially completed project just over a year and a half ago — since then, it’s undergone an extensive upgrade process that has garnered its 3.9-liter 1F inline-six and column-shifted, 3-speed manual transmission a significant amount of notoriety among its peers.

The outdoor-oriented vehicle utilizes Old Man Emu shocks and springs, burly aftermarket wheels dressed in BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A tires, and a Weber carburetor to get it where it needs to go.

AutoAdvance Hybrid Hammer Nail Gun

Unfortunately, due to its manual nature, it’s also one of the more dangerous tools in the box. But that’s all going to change thanks to the AutoAdvance hybrid hammer-nail gun. It took six long years and at least as many prototypes to get it working, but inventor Michael David Young finally managed to create a manually-operated hammer that doesn’t require the user to hold the nails in place. Rather, in a similar fashion to a nail gun, it accepts a bundle of collated nails and auto-dispenses them as needed. What you get, as a result, is a hand tool that’s significantly less bulky than a nail gun, while a lot more convenient and easy to use than a standard old-school hammer. Learn More: Here.

What you're seeing, and what's vital to understand, is that a solar panel will supply a certain current (at any voltage) - up to a certain point.

Why a Typical Home Solar Setup Does Not Work With the Grid Down - And What You Can Do About It

That current is directly affected by the illumination available (the different W/m^2 curves - that's illumination power per square meter of panel area). At a certain voltage, the current starts to drop off, and eventually you hit the open circuit voltage (Voc) - the voltage the panel produces when there's no current draw. The peak power (maximum power point) on the panel comes slightly past the start of the drop in voltage, and the available power drops rapidly as you go past that point into the voltage collapse.

At both the short circuit point (0V, plenty of amps) and the open circuit voltage (0 amps, plenty of volts), the panels are producing zero usable power. Making a silver ring.

Primer: How to Translate and Use Morse Code. We’ve all seen it in action before, whether in an old western, as some form of antiquated communication technique in a post-apocalyptic movie, or even in a nautical film in the form of an SOS distress call when things on the water got a little too hairy.

Primer: How to Translate and Use Morse Code

Morse code, a form of communication that predates the telephone, is a method of relaying information through a series of tones, lights, or clicks – a practice that’s now over 160 years old. Named for Samuel F.B. Morse, who invented the telegraph, the system encodes the basic Latin alphabet, Arabic numerals, some extra Latin letters, and a small set of punctuation marks via sequences of short and long signals. Today, the code is primarily used during search and rescue missions, distress calls, or for fun between individuals who wish to keep their conversations private. History New Tech, New Demands.

Used shipping containers turned into passively-cooled homes. Located in Santa Ana, Costa Rica, the Contenedores Franceschi project is made up of three 40 ft (12 m)-long shipping containers.

Used shipping containers turned into passively-cooled homes

The containers are heavily modified and installed into a structure that both provides a roof to shade them and raises them off the ground with concrete supports The three homes include some nice semi-outdoor areas like a rear deck, balcony, and porch. Each sports a solar water heater on the roof too. Despite the poor thermal performance of shipping containers, Re Arquitectura says that its homes don't have, nor need, any air-conditioning.

What’s got 8 legs, 2 hands and costs $36,000? At a glance, the Octopod calls to mind the partnership's earlier creation, Arachnophobia.

The piece stands on eight legs that can be individually articulated, each locking into place in an extended or standing position. To make sure the time can be clearly seen no matter what pose the Octopod is arranged in, the glass sphere can rotate 360 degrees, both vertically and horizontally. That kind of gimbal, the designers say, is reminiscent of classic maritime chronometers that needed to stay flat in the rolling waves, while the bubble itself was inspired by bathyspheres from sci-fi movies like The Abyss. The transparent head gives a clear view of the Octopod's inner intricacies. The pulsating escapement – the cogs and machinery that precisely keep time – are mounted on the minute hand instead of a static plate, and it's designed so that the whole engine appears to be floating inside the bubble. Further earning its title, the Octopod can keep time for eight days before needing to be wound.

There are three basic platforms to start with: the Mooz 1 offers basic 3D printing, CNC and laser with a single vertical arm, the Mooz 2 adds an extra vertical support arm for better precision and stability, while the Mooz 3 is a totally different three-pillar design that can't take the CNC or laser heads, but can print using two different color filaments.
