    Your Dog Is Stressed? Get Them A Relaxing Therapy At The Canine Oxygen Cell

    Despite how it looks like, they don’t cook dogs in that facility.  Nor is it a washing machine for your furry pets.   It is, in fact, a Canine Oxygen Cell  from Air Press, a luxury equipment where dogs can receive oxygen therapy – you know, where they get to breathe real fresh air. Why, in heaven’s name, would dogs need a “fresh air machine”?  According to Air Press, regular oxygen therapy will help the animals relax.  Relax from what, of [...]

    LimoBike: Harley In The Front, Limo In The Back

    How do bikers travel in style?  Rolling in a pack of hogs sounds so pedestrian.  Nothing says class and, well, tacky at the same time like the LimoBike, an unusual vehicle that combines a Harley Davidson muscle bike in the front and the rear end of a limousine in the back.  Yep, someone actually made one of those. Marketed as a specialty rental from Wildfire Tours, it’s certainly a unique way to make an arrival – with a roar.  Along [...]

  • Soleckshaw, A Solar-Powered Rickshaw For Indian Streets

    Soleckshaw, A Solar-Powered Rickshaw For Indian Streets

    I’ve never been to India, but I can imagine the rigors of a rickshaw driver.  Ferrying customers and  their packages on nothing but brute strength – all day, everyday – is like a mild form of torture.  In fact, India’s Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) director general Samir Brahmachari says the average rickshaw driver is often undernourished, getting back only 1,600 of the 4,000 calories they usually expend on an average day. Remedying that plight is among their [...]

    Cannondale’s Simon Is An Electronic Suspension System That Lets Bikes Automatically Adjust To Terrain

    We’re not sure if Cannondale will eventually have their way, but their new innovation should prove a revolutionary upgrade to bicycles of all types.  Codenamed Simon, the project throws out the traditional system of springs and shocks, in favor of a “smart” electronic suspension.

    Audi eTron Could Be The Sexiest EV Of 2012

    Watch out, Tesla and Fisker.  A new and improved Audi eTron just showed up at the Detroit Motor Show and it looks sleek.  In fact, people are already proclaiming it as the sexiest EV on the block. Compared to the concept eTron shown off at Frankfurt and LA last year, this new iteration boasts considerably less power.  That’s not a bad thing actually, since that means Audi is gearing it for actual road use, rather than showing off their advances [...]

    I’m Going Cuckoo For The Cuckoo Watch

    Watchmakers call their designs “classic” all the time.  Seriously, though, the Cwatch is the only wrist-worn timepiece I’ve seen that deserves such a label.  A cuckoo clock on a wristwatch?  Can you come up with anything more classic or legendary?  You have to be cuckoo not to love it! Designed by Belgian Thomas Cruyl, this looks way more interesting than those endless parades of LED-blinking Tokyoflash watches and insanely-priced European luxury brands.  Who wouldn’t want a veritable Grandfather Clock strapped [...]

    The Burj Khalifa (formerly known as the Burj Dubai) officially took the title of the “world’s tallest building” last week.  Not long after that, two base jumpers trekked to the top of the extra-tall edifice to be the first fellows to fall from it.  Nice. Setting their own world record for the highest base jump are Nasir Al Niyadi and Omar Al Hegelan, who both leaped off the structure to parachute down on the streets of Dubai.  See that dot [...]
