Useful Powerless Tools Inspired by the NBC Revolution TV Series

 - Sep 20, 2012
In J.J. Abrams Revolution TV series, a global blackout leaves the entire world without power and plunges humanity back into the dark ages. Although the show is complete science-fiction, the same thing could potentially happen in real life. For instance, if an event like a super-massive solar flare were to occur, orbiting satellites and electronic devices on earth could be severely disrupted for an indefinite period of time.

To properly prepare for something like what is depicted on the NBC Revolution series, you will need to be equipped with gear that never requires, batteries, charging, or electricity -- essentially, a powerless survival kit.

First of all, you're going to need water; the Katadyn Pocket Water Filter is a portable canteen that removes harmful impurities for questionable water sources. Secondly, you're going to need food; the Tactical Sammich has a two year unrefrigerated shelf life and comes in tasty pepperoni and BBQ flavors. Thirdly, you're going to need shelter; the wearable tent is a protective poncho that quickly converts to a tent when you need some protection from the elements. Finally, you're going to need protection from the roaming bands of scavengers and marauders out to pillage helpless survivors; the Gerber Gator Machete Pro is the perfect weapon to have at your side because, not only does it look intimidating as hell, it's also a great tool for hacking up fire wood.

With tools like these in your possession you're sure thrive in just about any environment that's devoid of power. You might even wind up as the leader of a ragtag group of misfits and embark on a series of harrowing and life-changing adventures -- straight out of the imagination of J.J Abrams.
