Othernet Dreamcatcher ON SALE FOR ONLY $49.00

Othernet Inc is a broadcast data company that was previously known as Outernet. Due to trademark issues, the name of the company and service was changed in July 2018. Othernet sells a portable satellite data receiver that combines an amplifier, radio, and CPU in a single unit. The company's goal is to make news, information, and education accessible to everyone.

Over on the Othernet website the Dreamcatcher hardware is currently on sale for only US$49. This is the lowest we've ever seen it for sale.

If you weren't already aware, the Othernet project aims to bring live data such as news, weather, video, books, Wikipedia articles and audio broadcasts to the world via a free satellite service and cheap receivers. Although an internet connection provides the same data, Othernet's satellite broadcast is receivable in remote areas, will continue working in disasters, and costs nothing to continually receive roughly 200MB of data a day. The trade off is that the service is downlink only, so the data that you get is only what is curated by the Othernet team.

Currently the public service is in a test period and is only available in North America. Europe has come online recently too, however they write that the current version of Dreamcatcher that is for sale may not be optimal for receiving the EU signal.

While currently active, they write that the Othernet satellite service is not guaranteed to continue long term. However even if the service discontinues, the Dreamcatcher can still be used as a TX/RX capable LoRa radio. In a previous post we demonstrated a fun application with two Dreamcatchers and a LoRa chat application.

A BROADCAST FOR THE DIGITAL AGE
Othernet delivers a multi-media broadcast to small, portable receivers. By uniting a globally-scalable satellite broadcast with easily-accessible technologies and rich, digital media, Othernet brings about a new communication platform accessible to all.


ACCESSIBLE, PORTABLE RECEIVERS
Thousands of consumers access Outernnet's technology through our receivers. Our model is to deliver more value in a portable design at low-cost with a scalable content delivery system.

Othernet's receivers acquire content through our broadcast network, which can be accessed by any computing device from the receiver through a local Wi-Fi hotspot created by the receiver. Othernet's free channel requires no recurring fees or account registration and our newest antennas are as small as a quarter.


RICH CONTENT
Othernet's solution marries the reach of broadcasting with digital media, transcending the format and time limitations of traditional radio or TV broadcasting.

Othernet broadcasts multi-media material through a scalable satellite network.


SCALABLE BROADCAST ARCHITECTURE
By leveraging existing geostationary satellite capacity and combining it with novel modulation techniques, we optimize content delivery with cost-efficiency.

Othernet's architecture is globally-scalable and globally-accessible, with a broadcast of useful and relevant news, information, and education materials. The vision of ubiquitous access is becoming a reality through our cutting-edge platform.


MULTI-MEDIA CONTENT DELIVERY
Use cases include radio broadcasting, emergency alerts, and educational content delivery.
​

RADIO BROADCASTING
Like traditional FM radio braodcasting, Othernet delivers audio content directly to Othernet receivers


EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AND DISASTER RELIEF
During times of disaster - when reliable communication is most important - terrestrial telecommunication systems are prone to fail. When these networks go down, Othernet's broadcast persists.

We provide a secure information channel for first responders while maintaining an open access platform for the general public.


ON-DEMAND VIDEO
Video files are downloaded by receivers and saved for later viewing.


EDUCATION
Information access is an essential ingredient for socioeconomic development in the 21st century, yet over 40% of the humanity does not have access to the wealth of knowledge found on the internet.

Courseware in many formats (ebooks, videos, apps) can be accessed through Othernet. These educational services are accessible to all - from children learning to read to adults learning to code.


INTERACTIVE WEATHER DATA
Othernet delivers real-time interactive weather maps to even the most remote areas.


FILE DELIVERY
Othernet broadcasts a wide array of multi-media content. Anything that is saved on a hard drive can be broadcast through Othernet.

U really don't see any use for this outside of a total communication whiteout?

Did you know it’s next to impossible to find a photo of a Satellite in Space that isnt CGI?

Did you know all GPS systems are Ground-Based Positioning Systems that use the cell phone towers placed around us to relay data, not Satellites in Space? which is why you get bad reception in Desert areas every though it’s in perfect view of the sun.

Did you know the Internet is connected intercontinentally through Underwater Internet Cables not Satellites in Space?

The Global Positioning System (GPS) developed by US, is a satellite-based navigation system made up of 27 satellites.

Navstar is a network of U.S. satellites that provide global positioning system (GPS) services. They are used for navigation by both the military and civilians.

[pic - click to view]








The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a constellation of about 24 artificial satellites. The GPS satellites are uniformly distributed in a total of six orbits such that there are four satellites per orbit. This number of satellites and spatial distribution of orbits insures that at least eight satellites can be simultaneously seen at any time from almost anywhere on Earth. The GPS satellites circle the Earth at an altitude of about 20,000 km (13,000 miles) and complete two full orbits every day. The GPS satellites are not in a geostationary orbit, but rise and set two times per day.

LoL We interact with this "reality" through the use of our senses, right?

..Senses that can be manipulated & altered?

which would no doubt alter one's perception of "reality"?

If you truly believe there are no satellites in orbit, how is there an aerial view of your house in Google Maps? Is that photoshop too?
