Air Purifier uses plants to clear the air

by James

Bel-Air

1971. Apollo 13 almost didn’t make it back home. We’ve all seen the movie. But it wasn’t the explosion that nearly killed the astronauts, it was rising levels of CO2 which would kill them within hours.

It’s that time of year. Where people spend hours setting up all the outdoor holiday lights to create a light display that could signal alien ships currently circling around Neptune to come land on their front lawns.

Solar powered headset lets you talk indefinitely in direct sunlight

by Chris

Sun Bluetooth headset

There is one problem that plagues all mobile technology: battery life. Sure, some gadgets will last through many hours of use, but with most you are limited to a significantly shorter time. This is why I’m happy to see companies such as Iqua implementing alternative energy sources into their mobile products. Take their Sun Bluetooth headset for example.
