He continued: “All unscripted, all ad-lib and always supremely assured. Unwaveringly confident. And do you know why? Because he never took any of this seriously. Least of all himself.”

  • This tent has a shocking secret that could keep you alive in a storm

    Thunderstorms are beautiful when you are inside a sheltered area, but the experience can be terrifying when you are outside, especially if you are in an open area. To help outdoor enthusiasts find safety during a sudden storm, industrial design student Kama Jania from Finland’s Aalto University has created a new line of lightning-proof tents that were featured recently in Designboom. The new “Bolt” tent looks like any other tent you would see on the trail or at a campsite, but it has an internal design that separates it from your typical store-bought shelter. The aluminum poles can withstand up to 200 kiloamperes and are intended to route a direct lightning hit away from the people seeking refuge in the tent. An added waterproof groundsheet protects the occupant from ground-based step voltages, which occurs when the current from a lightning bolt radiates through the ground following a strike. Related: Beat the freeze with these gadgets and gear for winter camping Working with Professor Michał Kracik Ph.D. and physicists Konrad Sobolewski and Aleksander Bogucki, Jania tested the Bolt tents using both high voltage and high current generators. In the high-voltage tests, the tent was subjected to discharges produced by an impulse voltage generator. A simulated tourist head was placed inside the tent to measure the voltage that reached the occupant. While the high-voltage test measured occupant exposure, the current generator test was used to determine the tent’s durability. In these tests, a series of electrical discharges with various peak current values were aimed at the tent’s poles. The tents passed the testing phase with only minor scorching on the poles and some melting observed on the tent stakes due to the high temperatures from the simulated lightning strikes. As conceptualized, the Bolt has three different designs based on the size of the shelter needed for hiking or camping. The largest tent is the Bolt Half (1.2 kg/2.65 lb), a half-tent suitable for multi-day trips in areas with ledges or ridges. The Bolt One is a single-person tent that is roomy enough for overnight camping while the Bolt Air is an ultra lightweight pneumatic shelter for day trips where an overnight stay is not expected. Each tent is made of a waterproof and breathable fabric with a frame that is easy to setup. Like most tents, the outer skin uses clips to attach to an aluminum pole frame that almost self-assembles due to its unique pole locking mechanism. An added window and a spacious entrance add a bit of comfort the portable abodes. Related: Cozy up next to your neighbor with the pod tent Unfortunately, Jania has no plans to manufacture the lightning-proof tents and instead is looking for a commercial partner to carry on the idea. The innovative grad student also is working on other outdoor-related projects, including a water collector that gathers water from different atmospheric heights.

  • Picture of dog enjoying last run on Redcar beach goes viral

    A picture of an elderly dog running along Redcar beach has gone viral, after it struck a chord with dog owners everywhere. Jessie the Black Labrador was 15-and-a-half years old, going deaf and blind and suffering from arthritis when the photo was taken. Her owner Lisa Rutter, who runs her own dog walking business, took the picture on her phone - a month before she was put to sleep. She'd had Jessie since she was just 8-weeks-old. The photo was recently found a new lease of life after being entered for the 'Best Old Dog Photo Competition' being hosted by Off the Leash, a dog cartoon website run by artist Rupert Fawcett. Earlier this week Rupert announced it had won the competition after picking up more than 9,500 likes.
