2019 Holiday Gear Gift Guide

It’s again that time of the year when we are scrambling to find that perfect gift for your friends, family, and that special someone. Here is my list of cool outdoor gear and high tech gadgets that will make great gifts this holiday season. 

Allett: wallets

Allett is a California based company that manufacturers high quality leather and nylon wallets for men and women. They also make and sell other neat products such as micro sized pens, leather belts, and even leather coasters. All of which make great gifts for the holidays. I was able to try out the following models of wallets: women’s Mule wallet with RF ID blocking, Leather Original Wallet with RF ID blocking, Nylon ID Wallet, Nylon Sport Wallet, and the Slim Leather ID Wallet. Each wallet is hand made in San Diego, CA with precision expertise. Based on my inspection of these wallets I believe each one could easily last for decades.

WaterLily: Charge your phone using water and wind

WaterLily is a portable river turbine loved by paddlers, campers, and off-gridders around the world. It charges phones, speakers, cameras, battery banks, and even 12V devices, by generating power from rivers and streams. In an average river, WaterLily charges most small electronics as fast as your wall outlet at home. 

The sun doesn’t always shine, but rivers flow 24/7, so WaterLily can generate 8x more power in one day than 14W solar panels. Solar panels require re-positioning as the sun moves across the sky, but WaterLily can run for days without maintenance. WaterLily can generate up to 360 Watt hours of power in a day. A 14W solar panel will generate 42 Watt hours on a good day. A 100W panel? 300! Instead of fussing with your solar panel during the day, setup WaterLily for overnight charging and wake up to full batteries in the morning. 

WaterLily’s patented technology was developed from subsea power harvesting research conducted over the past 10 years in the rugged North Atlantic Ocean. WaterLily charges your devices using River Power. Quick and easy setup and fast charging times make WaterLily a great choice for all of your USB charging needs including; cell phones, USB battery banks, camp lights, speakers, cameras, and more.

Helium Hotspot: The World’s First Peer-to-Peer Wireless Network

The People’s Network is powered by a range of technologies, such as the Helium Blockchain and LongFi Wireless Protocol on the 900MHz ISM band. The Hotspot serves as both the backbone of the network by providing many square miles of connectivity and as a node for the Helium blockchain which powers the reward system. Hotspots can support thousands of devices, yet only require about the same amount of power as an LED light bulb (5W).

The People’s Network is the world’s first peer-to-peer wireless network that provides a secure and cost-effective way for low-power Internet of Things devices to send data to and from the Internet. The network enables companies to focus on applications and use cases, not worry about cellular plans for devices or managing network infrastructure.

Anyone can own a Hotspot and start earning Helium, a new cryptocurrency, for providing coverage. All data is encrypted from machine to cloud and owned entirely by your organization. Due to its decentralized nature, the robust network is able to quickly and easily scale. Helium uses open-standards, off-the-shelf hardware, and all of Helium’s core technology is open-source.

Built from the ground up, the Helium blockchain powers the network and serves as the underlying technology for Helium tokens. The blockchain acts as a ‘cryptographic notary‘ since transaction data from devices including connectivity time, and the location is added to the blockchain and is immutable, inspectable, and censor-resistant. 

Proof-of-Coverage is a unique work algorithm that uses radio waves to validate Hotspots are providing legitimate wireless coverage. For this validation work Hotspots can earn Helium tokens by verifying network transactions, adding new blocks to the blockchain, and performing other tasks. The challenges generated by the network can be viewed through our Mobile App or through our Network Visualizer.

Helium LongFi is a new, open wireless protocol optimized for miles of range, and maximum battery life for low-bandwidth IoT devices. LongFi combined with the Helium blockchain allows a company to onboard as many devices they need without additional configurations or third-party assistance. During onboarding devices are mapped to a company ID on the blockchain, and become trusted by the network letting them connect and send data via any Hotspot. LongFi allows owners to earn Helium when devices transfer data over the network through their Hotspots. Hotspots use LongFi to wirelessly communicate over sub-GHz radio waves (not Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or cellular) to deliver over-the-air (OTA) firmware updates, and push commands to devices. 

Hotspot Technical Specifications:

Internal Components: Quad-core ARM A53-based Application Processor, 1GB RAM, 64GB Storage, ZOE-M8Q GNSS timing module

Networking: Wifi, Ethernet, & optional Cellular backhaul. Multi-channel radio baseband processor, dual I/Q low-frequency analog radio frontends. Capacity: Approximately 1.5 million machines per day, 62,500 per hour

Network Bands: RF: 902-928MHz (US), 868MHz (Europe), 779MHz (China), WiFi/Bluetooth: 2.4GHz, GNSS: 1.5GHz

Energy Usage: 5 Watts, approximately $0.025 per day to operate at $0.211/kWh (typical PG&E US)

Incognito Node: Easily earn cryptocurrency

Plug in, earn crypto. That’s about it. Node helps you collect the biggest coins of today – BTC, ETH, BNB and more – and all you need to do is turn it on and you get paid for processing confidential crypto transactions for the world. The Incognito Node is also a very efficient way to generate crypto.

Want to keep track of your earnings? Do it from the app. Node doesn’t require babysitting, so you can earn crypto while you’re chilling at the beach.

Node earns crypto by powering a new type of protocol (Proof of Stake, for our fellow nerds out there), one that consumes substantially less energy. This means hash rates don’t apply, and you’re not in a duck-swinging battle to see who’s got the biggest, baddest supercomputer.
Node needs just 1.5kwh a day to run, so if you live in the USA, it will cost you less than 8 cents to keep Node running all day long. Node is the most low maintenance housemate/pet you’ve ever had.

Node is a gadget with heart. It earns rewards for powering incognito mode for the crypto world. When you switch Node on, you’re not just earning crypto, you’re also giving anyone the option to claim their right to privacy.

Node makes sure you’re rewarded for protecting these rights, so a percentage of every private transaction will go you. This means whenever someone sends Bitcoin privately, you get Bitcoin.

Your Node will work together with thousands of other Nodes to support and sustain a decentralized, alternative network where all transactions are confidential. This means you don’t have to trust institutions, service providers and profit-driven centralized parties to tell you your information is safe. Node makes sure you’re in control.
