The Quick Drive Auto-Feed Screw Driving System makes such clean/quick work of tough jobs where users need to sink a ton of screws. I don’t even have a current need for this thing… but I want it. Video might be better at selling this one. Check it out after the break. ...

Remember the McDonald’s Shamrock Shake? Well it is coming back and McDonald’s wants to promote it by reinventing the straw for maximum shake drinkability. “It was a puzzling assignment but one with an ambitious goal,” said Seth Newburg, principal engineer and managing partner at NK Labs. “From a physics perspective, it’s actually quite difficult to deliver a proportional amount of both chocolate and mint flavors with each sip. But that’s exactly what we did. It’s a marvel of fluid dynamics. Thanks Fibonacci sequence.” McDonald’s...

It works on most zipper failures including split zipper tracks, broken sliders, and even missing teeth. You simply cut off the old zipper slide and clip on the new ADSRO zipper slide. Perfect...

The Tesla is the only electric car company that is addressing the charging issue head-on. What other car company has a massive global quick charging network? This is more about the United States even though Tesla is growing the Supercharger network worldwide. Currently Tesla has 2,636 Supercharger stations at 373 locations in North America. Impressive right? Well Tesla now plans to double this number by the end of 2017. Smart move considering the number of Model 3’s that will be hitting the road in the next few years. ...

The delivery via drone dream is a cool idea but has many hurdles to overcome. The biggest one is the range of said drones. I don’t imagine we will see drones delivery from warehouse to homes/businesses anytime soon. With that said, UPS’ latest approach seems like a great idea. The plan is to have a drone mounted on the roof of the UPS truck that does out-of-the-way deliveries while the driver continues doing their normal route. When the drone has delivered the package it comes back to the truck and lands for new packages...

From jet boat to submarine in seconds. Fun starts a few seconds in… wait for it. ...

I have lived in apartments and condos with walls so thin I could hear my neighbors daily conversations and other things. Things I didn’t want to hear. And I am sure they could even hear all of the noise we made on our side of the paper thin walls. I have never been so self conscious about my shower singing. Now imagine if you were practicing singing, guitar, flute, or playing video games. Especially at odd hours. Yep, you would not make the neighbors happy. Unless...

I’m sorry. I couldn’t resist. Plus, it’s Monday and it made me laugh. First off – there is no argument that a tightly tucked-in shirt looks better than a loosely tucked/blousy fitting mens shirt. It is tough to keep shirts tucked properly when moving around (squatting down, stretching, etc…).  There, I got the practical bits out of the way. Now imagine that your perfectly tucked-in shirt attracts a mate and you are about to disrobe. Get ready...

This is the ultimate tool for the do-it-yourself types from builders to weekend warriors. Perfect for laying down tile, paver bricks, arches, bullseyes, corbelling, and more. No more crazy calculations to get the perfect angle. Just re-create the angle with the General Tools 836 Angle-izer Template Tool and be done in seconds not minutes. It is also pretty inexpensive ($14 here), built to last, and fits...

Wino Sippers (2 for $22) look like a smoking pipe but are for sipping your wine of choice. Basically a wine glass with a built-in straw to help from staining your teeth I guess. Another solution searching for a problem or the perfect white elephant gift? ...
