Swap-O-Matic vending machine

by Edwin

It is rather encouraging to see society realize that we do not inherit the earth from our parents, but rather, we are just custodians of it for the next generation. After all, there is only one earth, and if it ends up inhabitable, where else are you supposed to go? Having said that, recycling efforts have clearly stepped up a pace over the years, and we are all more eco-conscious …

Powertrekk lets you get mobile power from ordinary water

by Mark R

I think that all of us have those mobile battery chargers for our cellular phone, in case we need that extra bit of juice. The problem is you have to remember to charge such devices, or you will be really screwed when you need them. What if you had a battery that is powered on nothing but ordinary water? It is now named the Powertrekk, and it uses fuel-cell technology …

Mazda works on regenerative system with electric double layer capacitor

by Edwin

Everyone wants to go green these days, it makes perfect sense after all. We do not hand over the earth to our descendants as an inheritance, but rather, we are just caretakers of the earth for the next generation. I know that hybrid cars have been working their way into the psyches of folks worldwide, and electric cars, too, are picking up the pace, although there is still a long …

by Mark R

I have to admit that I have never used a personal air purifier before, but when I had a chance to try out Humanscale’s ZON Personal Air Purifier, I took it. Of course, I did not think I needed something that looked like a fan in the cold weather I am experiencing where I live. Just to let you know, the ZON is designed to “surround the user in a …

Electric DeLorean DMCEV

by Edwin

I am quite sure that all you 1980s babies would have remembered the classic sci-fi film series, Back to the Future. There is nothing quite like the zany imagination from the past still keeping folks entertained today. I guess time travel is out of the question at the moment, and will be so in the immediate future, but how cool would it be to be able to travel through the …

Manhattan dweller creates “Origami Apartment”

by Mark R

I always loved reporting on people who create the most out of a small space. As someone who lives in a small space, I guess I just can’t help myself. We have reported on a man in Hong Kong who created a Domestic Transformer or the Tokyo man who builds his home in a parking space. These architects Michael Chen and Kari Anderson work for Normal Projects, and they have …

Radiator Booster Mk3 for a warmer winter

by Edwin

Winter will be upon us yet again in the northern hemisphere (oh how fast does time fly!), and you can bet your bottom dollar that more and more devices will be released that will have something to do with warming people up, or at least making sure heat is not lost. Firebox plays their part with the 24.99 Radiator Booster Mk3, and the name itself more or less gives the …
