PowerCap – The head-topper that lights the way

Hands-free lighting is a great thing because sometimes we have too much going on to deal with also holding a flashlight. Unfortunately, most hands-free lighting set-ups leave a lot to be desired when it comes to looking cool and stylish. Now it’s possible to have extra light without it looking like someone jammed a flashlight into your forehead.

Boeing’s latest fuel efficient family of planes – the 777X

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fop6Qu2CN0E Fuel efficiency has become increasingly crucial for a struggling airline industry. With rising costs for fuel passed on to disgruntled passengers, airlines are working to create better, faster and more fuel efficient planes. Boeing announced their latest family of airliners – the 777X – at the recent Dubai Airshow. Innovatively designed with folding wing-tips that will increase wingspan, Boeing says it will be both the largest and most efficient twin-engine jet in the world. Its wings are based on…

BlinkerGrips – The bicycle grips that say, ‘Hey! I’m riding here.’

There are a lot of reasons to ditch the car in favor of a bicycle: Pedal-power is environmentally-friendly, riding is a great way to stay in shape (and why not exercise as you go from Point A to Point B), and it’s usually easier to find a spot to park your bike than it is a car. However, bicycles do require a little more caution, including easy ways to make sure other people on the road see you.

The Humble Store – ultra cheap games for pleasure and charity

We’ve featured the Humble crew before several times, mostly because they keep offering amazing ‘pay what you can afford’ deals on games and ebooks, with a proportion of the proceeds going to charity, but now they’ve gone one step further and introduced what could be the bestest online retail store ever.

Stop Phubbing – become a nicer person, put down your phone for a minute…

There’s a movement happening people, a protest against the erosion of human values and decency. It’s not about crime, politics or even gender, it’s about connecting or the lack thereof. We’re absolutely in agreement with the sentiment and we promote the policy here to try and encourage everyone to join in. After all, it’s only polite.

Now Novel – step by step online program promises to help you write your novel and get rich

Writing a book is easy, ask anyone. All you’ve got to do is sit down, grab your tool of choice and the words will flow quickly and easily. Not. Sure, the late Barbara Cartland may have managed to produce an astonishing 23 novels in 1983 (for which she holds the Guinness World Record for most novels in a year) but for ordinary joes trying to get a book out of the head and onto paper can be a Herculean task.

OLTU – A great new concept to keep food fresher longer

A recent disturbing statistic says that Americans throw away almost 50 percent of the food they buy. The main reason for this is that food “goes bad” or no longer looks appealing to eat. What’s needed is a better way to store it so that it stays fresher longer. The National Award Winner from Spain of the James Dyson 2013 Award would do just that.   The OLTU, a system that uses the heat generated by refrigerators and uses the…

Could space junk become a thing of the past?

More than 16,000 pieces of “space junk” currently orbit the Earth. This debris includes non-functioning satellites and burned-off pieces from former space flights. Satellites tend to cluster in similar orbits and pose serious threats to space faring technology as well as to the International Space Station. This may become a thing of the past due to a partnership that’s been announced between the Ecole polytechnique federale de Lausanne (EPFL) and Swiss Space Systems (S3) to launch the CleanSpace One satellite…

Friendly Dog Collars – let the world know about your pet’s character instantly

Dogs are definitely man’s best mate, but of course not all of our canine cousins are as friendly as they could be. In fact, it’s probably fair to say that our beloved pets come in a variety of different personalities, just like people do. Which makes it rather difficult when out and about to determine just how a particular pooch will behave as we approach them on the street.

The Nube transforms a hammock into a covered shelter

Even though summer is over, there’s plenty of great camping weather still to come. Finding a way to keep yourself and your gear covered when needed is a great plus. The Nube (pronounced “new-bay”), from Sierra Madre Research, attaches to any camping hammock and turns it into an enclosed shelter. A series of suspension lines connect to surrounding trees and the ground keep the top waterproof layer taut, creating a barrier against wind and rain. If no trees are available,…

Banish wrinkled T-shirts from your life and you WILL become rich and famous

You know who you are. You’re the type who ensures everything is tidy, organized, and sparkling clean. Your personal mantra is ‘a place for everything and everything in its place’ (which you mutter to yourself repeatedly as you scrub). No detail is too big or to small to obsess over. You even find yourself compulsively folding shirts when you are out and about – at a friend’s house, at a store, on the street.

Compleat Foodskin will protect your sandwich from the elements

The easiest thing to bring to work is a sandwich. Assembling them is simple, eating them is almost as effortless as breathing, and they generally keep pretty well in the fridge. The biggest issue you may face would be the contents sliding all over the place and leaving a lovely mustard or mayonnaise smear inside of the container you put it in.
