Maybe solar isn’t your thing. Maybe you will need recharging while along side a running river. Heck, maybe you will be in some seriously windy areas. Time for a Waterlily Turbine Charger ($159) which uses wind/water power for charging up your USB devices. the waterlily weighs 2.86 lbs, can withstand water currents up to 6.8 mph, wind speeds ups to 55 mph, and even comes with a 2600 man battery bank. Not enough reviews to know what the masses think.    ...

Doona Car Seat Stroller

Here I am writing about an infant car seat that transforms to become a stroller when needed. I don’t even have kids! The Doona Car Seat ($499) is that cool. In fact, it is the only car seat in the world with integrated wheels. It transforms from a car seat to a fully capable stroller in just a few seconds. Awesome.

The taste of a “true” free range chicken egg is much better than what we typically get at the grocery store. The yolk is a darker, deeper yellow and stands up in the pan. Once you have had a good egg it makes it tough to eat the sad, pale, inexpensive eggs that most folks purchase. Don’t take my word for it, buy four chickens, this chicken coop and let your hens roam the yard and eat feed and bugs. This chicken coop is easy to assemble, has ventilated mesh, and an easy cleanup tray. If this chicken coop doesn’t...

Starting a fire has just gotten easier. The Trailblazer Fire Starter Sticks ($5.99) with Match Heads light like a match and burn like a starter log. These super-matches are made of compressed wood and eliminate the need for starter woods (kindling, garwood, etc…). Each Trailblazer Fire Starter Stick will burn for 7-10 minutes. As far as fire starters go these are pretty eco-friendly as they are made of only compressed wood chips and paraffin wax, no synthetic adhesives, solvents, or other chemicals. ...

Trailer Valet RVR Airstream

Imagine never having to back up your RV trailer (or any trailer up to 9,000-pounds for that matter) again. Some people make quick work of it while others can’t back a trailer to save their lives. The Trailer Valet RVR makes backing trailers a snap. This robotic tank track RV parking machine is basically a remote control tank with a ball-hitch for your trailers. It has four planetary gear motors, caterpillar treads, 360-degrees of motion, and can traverse most surfaces. More picture sand video after the break. (more…)

Considering that the earths population is set to grow from 7 to 9 billion in the next 2o years it is time to get creative about housing options. Add that with the fact that most of the earth’s surface is covered in water and that 75 percent of the world’s megacities are butted right up against the water. I’m not even going to get into global warming and sea level changes. You get the idea.  Time for a houseboat.

This isn’t your typical “houseboat”. The HydroHouse was designed by Zhivov and Baikal Yacht Group and combines a houseboat, dock, and seaplane mooring. That alone is pretty amazing but it is also transportable by a normal semi-truck. When/if the world goes full crazy, untie the ropes and push-off.

Check out more pictures after the break.

The Makita CM501D is a coffee maker that is powered by the same rechargeable Li-ion batteries that the Makita power tools use. Genius! the Makita CM501D can make up to 5.3 cups of coffee per charge. ...

Shoei Neotec II

If you have ever ridden motorcycles in a group setting you know how fun, and frustrating, it can be. It is fun because you get to share the ride experience with friends and are more visible riding in a group. It is a bit frustrating at times when you are in the middle of the pack and need to stop for a restroom break and have no way of communicating with other riders around you.

One way to solve this is to bolt on a SENA Bluetooth Helmet Headset onto your existing helmet. Not the most elegant helmet addition, but it works. Well the folks at SENA and SHOEI have joined forces for a seamless helmet communication system, the Neotec II Helmet.

SENA’s exclusive SRL Communication System is tailored specifically to the NEOTEC II helmet. When installed, the SRL is virtually undetectable from the outside of the helmet, and functions with a simple 3-button control. Chat with other riders via bluetooth intercom, listen to music, hear turn-by-turn GPS directions, and much more with the SRL. Learn more about the SRL here.

The NEOTEC II is an every-occasion helmet with the adaptability to excel no matter where your next journey takes you. The convenient “flip-up” versatility of a true two-in-one helmet combined with next-level aerodynamics, an internal sun shield, Pinlock® EVO fog-resistant system, and the ability to seamlessly integrate with the all-new SENA SRL (SHOEI Rider Link) Communication System, the NEOTEC II is the pinnacle of modular helmet design for today’s hybrid motorcyclists.

Cold weather doesn’t have to end your backyard hangout sessions. You just need to be creative. Try popping a Breeo smokeless fire pit to your backyard hangout area. There are four Breeo models to choose from (Ablaze, Zentro, Double Flame, and Luxeve). The Breeo fire pits keep smoke at a minimum by using a double-wall, secondary combustion chamber. This means that the smoke is mixed with heated oxygen causing it to reburn. No more playing musical chairs to dodge the smokey areas. The Breeo fire pits are made in Lancaster, PA and...
