Bear Grylls Gerber Gear Mountain Pack

Attack the mountain with the Bear Grylls Survival Mountain Pack. Back in 2010, the ultimate survivalist Bear Grylls partnered with Gerber Gear in an effort to use his extended survival expertise and create a line of gear and necessities for survival in any conditions. During the past years, a series of essentials were released to the market. The Bear Grylls River Patrol 45 survival pack combines some of the best items of the Bear Grylls line and makes them available as a whole purchase discounted with over 30% over their regular (MSRP) prices.

The pack can be grabbed on the Gerber Gear website, or, if you like a particular item in the pack and want to buy it alone, you can grab it on Amazon via the individual links in the article:

Cool Moto X Interactive Magazine Print Ad That Is Actually ... Interactive!!!
Print ads are somehow boring to create … and even to read. While advertising in magazines and newspapers still brings new business and customers to companies, technical ads possibilities are very limited. Advertisers are blocked using images. No video, no sound, no GIF’s, no moving parts, just simple plain imaging, which limits the impact of ads and makes the advertising agency work harder to be creative and acquire reader’s attention.

Well … this is what I thought until now! Other than the classic “scratch-here-to-smell-this-perfume” there was literally no interactivity in offline magazine ads. But things start to change and advanced technology gets into offline advertising as well. Should we call it Offline Advertising 2.0?

Check out this cool Moto X print ad made by the advertising agency Digitas which allows readers to change the colors of the smartphone by touching various tone choices bellow the image. The ad appeared in 150,000 copies of the Wired January 2014 issue and made use of a slim transparent plexiglass slab, some LED lights, four small embedded batteries and some buttons disguised as color choices.

Let’s hear your thoughts about it in the comments. Also, what’s your take on the future of offline advertising? Will the magazine ads look the same as today in 10 years?

GOW Smart Fabric Workout Shirt With Integrated Sensors
Improve your workouts with the GOW Smart Fabric Shirt With Integrated Sensors.
This fancy smart-shirt features a HRM (heart rate monitor), sensors, Bluetooth connectivity and free GOW iPhone and Android apps! How’s that sounding for a running shirt?

All you have to do is select between four training modes: running, biking, hiking, or working out at the gym, and let the shirt do its job! The HRM will transfer workout data to the smartphone app, which, based on the received information, will calculate burned calories, traveled distance, best times, ran tracks and even compete against your friends!
The workout outfit is available for men (as a t-shirt) and for women (as a bra), is made of seamless fabric, ensures maximum comfort, moisture release and avoids chafing (technical yarn with Bosy thermoregulation), can be hand washed or machine washed, and the HRM unit can be cleaned, if necessary, with mild soap and clean water.

ALSO CHECK the Superman Alter Ego Compression Shirt an the Superhero Muscle Shirt we featured earlier from Under Armour.

The best part about it is that you get an all-in-one-training-cool-2.0-t-shirt and you no longer have to worry about gearing up a ton of gadgets before going out running. Considering all gadgets are included in the shirt, you will probably have to dismiss them once the t-shirt wears out, but, given it’s reasonable pricing – $79.99 US as we speak (hey … that’s not a lot more than the price of a good, brand working shirt) , it’s still worth the shot!

Midland XTC-280 Wearable Action Camera - A Decent Alternative For GoPro Recorders
While the premium quality, the strong build and the extra set of features make the GoPro action cameras the favorite choice for all extreme sports lovers (and many more), we have to admit that lower end models pack just enough power for casual use and for most regular people out-there! You know what I mean, Mr Regular Guy going on a motorcycle vacation with a couple of friends, Mr Family Guy going to the beach with the kids, Mr Student going on a camping trip or the neighbor’s 10 years old kid recording his biking adventure to impress grandma and grandpa …

Let’s take a closer look to the Midland XTC-280. This action camera is small and light enough to be worn without feeling it and packs a lot of power. It records Full HD (1080p) and HD (720p), it sports a large ON/OFF recording button so it can be easily used by someone wearing motorcycle or ski gloves, wide angle lens, microphone, 5.2MP, image stabilization to make sure you get crisp and stable recording and comes with a submersible case (down to 200 feet or 60 meters) and an universal mount which allows users to use it attached to helmets, motorcycles, snowboards and basically anywhere you can stick an adhesive pad.

We used the Midland XTC-280VP for about a week and and the recordings as well as the camera usability and packed features were OK. The quality could have been better at some points, but hey, don’t forget this is a $90 action camera, not a $400 GoPro HERO3+ Black Edition! Check the attached video to see it for yourself.

Gunbrella - The Coolest Riffle To Defend Your From … Rain
If the Samurai Umbrella we told you about earlier was not enough for you and you want something more sophisticated to fight the rain, the Gunbrella must be just what you’re looking for. The Gunbrella is shaped as a riffle (dah!!!), sports a 40-in (103cm) canopy mounted on a 11-in (26cm) handle and opens … guess what … when you pull the riffle trigger! The Gunbrella comes with a sleeve which allows you to carry it on your shoulder, just like a regular riffle.

Little disclaimer – as always when we feature such (misleading) gear – wear it and use it with caution. We don’t want you to get in trouble with local authorities thinking it’s a real gun! Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
