The Bible that doesn’t need a double adapter

Am I the only one who thought that the lyrics to “500 Miles” by the Proclaimers included “Double adapter, double adapter”… Perhaps.

Irrelevant though this tangent may be – it begs the question as to what this post is actually about. I will keep you in suspense no longer. If the camouflage Bible sounds good to you, except that you’re illiterate, then I have a solution.

A solar powered audio Bible. Bringing hope to the nations. It’s called the “Proclaimer”. And it looks like your grandpa’s wireless.

Here are some FAQs from the website… actually, I can’t imagine that anybody’s first question when confronted with this device is “how many times will it play before it dies?” My question is “why did you make a solar powered audio Bible in the first place?”

How does the Proclaimer work?

  • An installed microchip contains Scriptures in the heart language; the chip will not erase or wear out from frequent playing.
  • The battery will play for 15 hours and can be recharged enough times to play the entire New Testament more than 1,000 times.
  • The Proclaimer has a built-in generator and solar panel to charge the battery.
  • The solar panel, in addition to charging the battery, will run the Proclaimer even without battery power as long as there is sunlight.
  • The sound is digital quality and loud enough to be heard clearly by groups as large as 300.

Thanks to us, there's a whole generation of Tweed River-ites who also think that the lyrics are 'double adapter'.

We had a visually impaired guy do the talk (I wouldn't really call it a sermon) today at church. He used one of these to do the Bible reading.

They are handy for people who can't read a normal Bible.

And for making it solar powered – well, that's handy when you don't have electricity 'on tap'.

I think these kind of things are a great idea. Obviously you don't need it if you can read a normal Bible just fine.

I'm curious about how easy it is to navigate between chapters and verses. I also wonder why they don't just sell iPod nanos or something a bit smaller and more manageable. I guess it needs speakers to be of use in a public forum. It just seems an odd mishmash of technology. Like someone sat down one day trying to invent something and just kept adding features because the technology exists.

RodeoClown says:

No idea on the navigation aspects.

As for why not an ipod – it doesn't have speakers, so you'd have to get some speakers, which would make it just as big (if not bigger). And then you have TWO things to manage (wait, just read your comment better and you said that) :)

Also much cheaper to make these I'd imagine, more rugged, and less likely to get stolen.
