Cranking MP3 Player

How many times has your MP3 player died on you while you were rocking out far from home? I’m sure it’s happened at least a few times, and depending on your MP3 player, you were probably out of luck until you got home to recharge it.

WashUP Washer and Toilet Combined

Hybrid vehicles are always welcome in my book, since the earth is already being overloaded by too many people, too much waste and an imbalanced system of wealth distribution.

Grocery Bag Chair

One thing I hate when getting back from the grocery store is that I’m left with half a dozen plastic bags. I know that they have other uses, so I have a small stash of them, however, most get tossed in the trash. My wife has been considering picking up some reusable bags because they are more environmentally-friendly. I’m inclined to agree with her. However, another solution would be to …

Benkatine Turbine Makes Energy While You Flush

by Mark R

Benkatine Turbine

Sometimes I have to wonder if there is a limit to eco-friendly gadgets that try to save as much energy as possible. For example, the Benkatine Turbine: a device from Leviathan Energy that allows you to generate electricity when you flush the toilet. The device works using the principles of hydroelectric power. In other words, water flows in (or, in the case of flushing, out) a turbine fan spins, and …
