Orange Foot Pump can Charge a Cell Phone

by Mark R

I used to have a rubber raft that required a foot pump to inflate. It took a lot of foot motion to get that raft inflated, and I never really thought about using that energy to power a mobile device.

I truly hate lanterns and for one simple reason.  They take about six different D batteries to stay powered.  Who honestly keeps D batteries around?  I don’t think I even own any gadgets anymore that require that particular type of batteries.  Well if you really don’t want to have to stock pile batteries, this small lantern uses other forms of power to make sure that your activities stay well lit.

Electric vehicles will no doubt be more and more commonplace in the future, and you know what this means?

I’ve seen numerous lights that utilize the winding of a handle in order to give the light power.  They work, but they aren’t in the least bit creative, it’s been done time and time again.  This globe shaped light will shine on your work and books all night long, just as long as you keep it charged.  To do that, you just spin the globe round and round just as …

Everyone could probably use being a little more mindful of water usage.  Even knowing exactly how much it is you use on different things is helpful.  One big way water can get away with you is when watering the lawn or flowers.  It’s just easy to do when you’re not paying close attention.  Which is where this nozzle comes into play.  Not only would a nozzle make things a little …

According to recent studies, Pizza is a $30 billion dollar industry. That’s a heck of a lot of cardboard boxes in our landfills. But a Pizza box company has come up with a very simple pizza box design which recycles and reuses the box the pizza comes in with a simple tear along the serrated lines.
