Golf Ball Launcher fires Titleists

by Mark R

I’m not the type who is really into golfing. Heck, I’ve never even hit a ball on the driving range. I can imagine that it must be difficult to hit a tiny ball on the ground with a small pole with a wedge on the end of it. I’m sure I would get frustrated with it really fast, and I would probably want to shoot something. (Something not alive, just …

If you can’t wait until summer to try the Chariot Skates, then you may might want to see this product that is made for the winter snow. The MATTRACK can best be described as a scooter, but with a tank tread instead of wheels so it will go through the snow. It has a handle on it so it can steer, and the frame is mounted on a tread in …

Chariot Skates combine both biking and skating

by Mark R

I can see why they call these Chariot skates. If this guy in the photo were to squat down, he would look like a prop from a modern day Ben-Hur. That, or someone in a wheelchair without a seat. As it is, the Chariot Skates are designed to hold your legs as strongly as a foot inside of a skiboot. As you can see, it sort of combines a bicycle …

Beriscope-by-Jaewon-Choi-thumb-550x413-30241

Some of you might remember the other day when we reported on the Coolerbot, a way of exploring the outdoor wildlife from remote control while indoors. The Beriscope is a way of looking at undersea life from remote control. Here’s how it works: The ball shaped thing on the left side of the device can separate from it, but is still tethered to it with some cable. The user throws …

MIT Researchers have appropriately debuted the Copenhagen Wheel at the Copenhagen Conference on Climate Change. This big red wheel has a very unique ability: When you brake, your kinetic energy is recuperated by an electric motor and then stored by batteries within the wheel, so that you can have it back to you when you need it.

I haven’t been skiing in over a decade, and there were times that I got lost on the slopes. They didn’t have navigation units or cellular phones back then, but this new device from Recon Instruments could turn skiing into a very high-tech experience. The Recon Instruments ski goggles have a miniature heads-up display that can show the skier’s position on the slopes, as well as the location of his …

Teaching your kids to hit a baseball is a bit of a trying task.  Of course, that’s partially because you’re handing your child a bat that probably will at some point hit you instead of the ball.  Plus normally you’re using a tee to teach them.  Once they hit the ball you usually have to pick up the tee and go find the baseball.  With this Fisher-Price product it would …

4Fitness Gym is made to be compact

by Mark R

4fitness1-1-thumb-519x421-28863

This seems to be a trend in home exercise equipment to fold up into something very compact, like the Hidden Grove Fitness Armoire Collection and the Fitness Cube. I suppose it is a sign that our living places are just too darn small. The 4Fitness is a gym system that is designed to fit together and conveniently lean against the wall when it is done. Each of these four sections, …
