One way of looking at the Internet is that it is the largest library ever constructed. Having a library, or a way to store human creativity, is important because any future advancement requires a foundation of accumulated knowledge. Of all the ways humans have come up with for passing on information (oral traditions to the printed), the Internet is the best we've created thus far. Yet, only ⅓ of humanity has access to the Internet. Bridging this gap is the Lantern, a portable data receiving device; here's why you need to get your hands on one.
Despite this enormous information disparity, here you are reading this article on the Internet. You may be wondering why the Lantern makes sense for you. If you're the type of person who values emergency preparedness and has a disaster kit, then Lantern is a "must have." You have radio for audio, public television broadcasts for visual and newspapers for written, but all of those can be (and often are) compromised during a disaster. Lantern's signal comes from space. It is a piece of tech gear that you can depend on when phone lines are down and you want to know what's going on. Buy a Lantern and be prepared!
Founder Syed Karim explains that Outernet, the company that makes Lantern, is focused on delivering critical information to as many people as possible and does so in a way that works kind of like an FM radio. Instead of a radio tower, Outernet uses satellites. Instead of creating music for your ear, Lantern emits a Wi-Fi signal for your Wi-Fi-enabled device. Instead of songs, Lantern receives and stores files. In this regard, it is actually better than a radio; imagine if a radio could save every song that you liked and that's how Lantern handles your files.
The company provides time-sensitive content like news bulletins and disaster alerts, which will be updated several times an hour. They will also give access to content from websites like Wikipedia, Khan Academy and Project Gutenberg, a collection of copyright-free e-books. Thus their tagline of "Humanity's Public Library."
If you are a traveler like me, then you visit countries that like to hold a noose on certain websites and water down the news. In these countries, getting clean access to, say, the real BBC or CNN news and not the censored sources is a big plus. Moreover, many remote locations and exotic destinations do not have the infrastructure for Internet. Giving global access to Outernet via Lantern is an easy and affordable solution.

The Orion Stargazing Companion is a very cool device that allows us to discover and recognize constellations in the night sky. Most stargazers manage to recognize Ursa Minor and Ursa Major, however we all know there are many more. Thanks to its transparent screen, precise location technology and easy-to-use key functions, locating constellations accurately is a breeze.
Interestingly, you can even project celestial objects on a room’s ceiling thanks to the mini projector integrated on the backside.

Qi (pronounced “chi”) is a unique, elegant self-heating disposable baby bottle designed to provide a thoughtful & practical way to feed your baby on the go & on demand. Combining the convenience of ready-made formula with an integrated heating system, Qi provides parents with the independence to maintain a regimented feeding pattern with minimal hassle. The innovative design hygienically preserves formula that, with a simple twist of the base, can be safely heated to deliver a warm, satisfying feed on the go.
Unique properties: Thermocromic heat sensing symbols on the bottle provide an indication of the milk’s temperature. a Simple twist of the bottle base adjusts the heat, enabling full control of the temperature, so a warm feed can be safely delivered on the go. Both teat and formula are kept separate in foil sealed sterile sections, permitting storage for up to 12 months. The Qi product range comes in a variety of formulas, flow rates and sizes for infants from 6 to 24 months.
Product realization: Long lasting ready-made formula milk satisfies the parent’s need for a bottle that can be heated on demand and remains sterile until opened. Blow molded HDPE is utilized for the main container, whereas the base, lid, collar and canister are injection molded. All silicone and HDPE parts are BPA free, avoiding potentially harmful chemicals from leaching into the milk. An exothermic reaction between water and calcium oxide produces enough heat to warm the ready-made formula milk to body temperature within 3 minutes for a quick feed.
Operation Flow Interaction: The design of the teat and rounded nipple replicates the feel and shape of a real breast, encouraging babies to latch on more quickly. The offset teat reduces the angle of feed ensuring it remains full of milk as long as possible, preventing the swallowing of air to reduce colic. The bottle’s organic form and rounded base has been ergonomically designed to sit comfortably within the hand, providing an ideal feeding position for both parent and baby.
