by Chris

I know that I spend more on my electric bill every month than I probably should. But with as many computers as I have running in my house, it’s not really a surprise. I can easily pinpoint where the main power drains are coming from, however, some people prefer to know exactly how much power some of their larger equipment uses. Here’s a cool power strip that will tell you …

E+ Bike from Electric Motion Systems takes you far without much effort

by Chris

E+ Bike

With ever-soaring gas prices, alternative modes of transportation such as bikes can seem more appealing than they used to. Sure, if you live out in the country, you probably wouldn’t want to ride all the way to work every day, however, if you only need to get less than a mile, it might not be so bad. If you do still live a good distance from where you need to …

Get the most out of your tube of toothpaste

by Chris

Squeezeit Squeezer

I’ve always thought that toothpaste tubes were poorly designed. Try as you might, you’ll never get all of that stupid gel out of there. Crest had a design about 10 years ago that actually seemed to work rather well, it basically had a bag of toothpaste inside of a plastic pump. I don’t think I’ve seen those in some time though. If you’re really dead-set on getting every last bit …

by Edwin

thirst-aid.jpg

Traveling to Third World countries might be cheap for those living in the West, considering the much lower standard of living, and the sights and smells are often exotic as well. Unfortunately, all that comes at a price, sometimes safe drinking water is hard to come by, and to rely on bottled water wherever you go is pretty inconvenient. Enter the Thirst Aid Pouch that makes it easy to filter …

Moped Runs on Air

by Mark R

Moped Runs on Air

I have seen the future, and contrary to what Al Gore thinks, it is actually a convenient truth. One day, we all will drive vehicles that will run on air, and will actually produce healthy emissions instead of pollutants like carbon monoxide gases. I had my brief glimpse into this Earth-friendly future when I heard about Jem Stansfield, a former shepherd now turned inventor who has designed an air powered …
