California Anarchist ‘Point Break’ shows us that there are much, much better uses for a pram than putting the silly thing into water. He writes “done in time for #6 grandchild. Pattern/Plans from Jordan Boat Works. Fun Build. Wood is maple with oak trim. Finish is a minwax conditioner, followed by a natural stain, finished with 3 coats of miniwax low VOC polycrylic. Mrs PB made the custom fitted mattress and sheets.” Wanna know more? Hit him up in the thread.

Irish Anarchist Seán Toomey thought so, and for his thesis project last year at the Dublin Institute of Technology, he created the VHF Casemate to address this issue. It’s clever as hell; the Casemate is a ruggedized, waterproof phone case that contains the important bits from a VHF radio; slip your smartphone into the case (with a connector that allows the Casemate to use your phone’s power, processor, microphone and headphones) and you’ve got a phone that also functions as a VHF radio.
With many of us now taking our phones offshore for safety and even navigation, this is a nice addition, and with a price target under 100 Euros, it should be economical as well. Wanna help this thing get produced? Get in touch with Sean at the DIT Hothouse site.

Our performance-loving friends over at Velocitek have spent the last couple of years designing and building the perfect tactical compass, and today, they introduce it to the world!
The new Shift uses a nine-axis solid-state sensor to provide buttery smooth compass headings regardless of conditions, while the port/starboard reference angle buttons and indicators are huge, intuitive, and extremely easy to use. Instead of doing mental gymnastics or waiting for your existing compass to stop bouncing around so you can see if you’re lifted or headed, the Shift tells you what you need to know quickly, accurately, and reliably, taking the guesswork out of your tactics on the course.
Hit the thread and ask the inventors yourself if you have any questions.
