No More Tripping Wires – Flat extension cords / tape

postline1  No More Tripping Wires – Flat extension cords / tape

No More Trippin Wires

The thing with extension cords is that they look ugly and the wires are a prime accident zones for tripping. There is nothing Elegant about them! Unless you’re looking at the “Post Line”, this one’s a gorgeous concept that makes full use of the circuit-printing technology and electrostatic paste material. Use it from point A (gadget) to point B (wall socket) by sticking it flat to the floor, and if it becomes less sticky and grimy, simply wipe it clean and its sticky flat extension cord tape again!

The 10 Hour Heated Stadium Seat

bun heater

The 10 Hour Heated Stadium Seat.

This is the battery-powered heated seat cushion that converts any cold, unforgiving bleacher or chair into a heated seat for up to 10 hours on a single charge. Powered by a rechargeable, long-lasting 7-volt lithium battery, the seat generates constant heat from a patented system of stainless steel fibers woven around thin heating panels and sealed in a waterproof coating. The touch of a button adjusts the amount of heat produced from 85º F to 135º F and the seat is lined with 3″ of high-density foam that relieves point-of-contact pressure inherent in long periods of sitting at a ball game. An integrated shoulder strap ensures ease of portability to a sporting event or hunting stand. Battery lasts up to 10 hours on the lowest heat setting; two hours on the highest heat setting. Recharges via included AC adapter in three hours. 16″ L x 14″ W x 3″ H. (2 3/4 lbs.)

Customized Band Aid Strip Short or Long

bandaid

Customized Band Aid

With kids at home you do have to keep an assortment of shapes and sizes of band aid at home. More often than not, I use it for the placebo effect; a strip plaster round the superficial cut on the finger works better than any medicine, cuddling or kisses. The Long and Short Plaster does away with the need of stocking up assorted sizes and works like a tape dispenser. Cut out the right size and use it.

Printing A Road – Faster way to paint signs on roadways

road printer3  Printing A Road – Faster way to paint signs on roadways

Printing A Road

The Road Printer is a device that can be used to print road-signs directly onto the road surface. As opposed to the tedious job of hand-painting the signs, this device looks at making the task easier and precise. A set of templates like Stop, U Turn, Bus, Arrow Signs etc. are pre-programmed into the device and are jet-sprayed to the surface. The menu buttons are large enough to endure a boot or a push from your fingers. A solar panel on the top-end helps in charging the thang.

A paint cartridge swings from side-to-side between the track wheels, spraying the selected icon to the road. The paint reservoir is fitted at the rear and can be easily refilled.

Overall a nice, perceptive design; something my country could very well use. Where I live, we have a lot of red-tape even to get roads painted. First they have a tender floated for getting the job done, and then the contractors take their sweet time, disrupt traffic and still do a shoddy job of the markings. If the Road Printer will do the perfect job with a quick, drying paint…life in traffic will be a tad bit easier!

Looftlighter Blows Enough Heat To Light Up Your Fire

lighter

When I first spotted the Looftlighter I thought it was a really cool curling iron. Instead it is a firestarter without the flame. Richard Looft created the Looftlighter out of frustration from barbecued food tasting like lighter fluid. Basically its a hair dryer on steroids that blows enough extreme heat (about 1000 Fahrenheit and higher) to kick start a fireplace’s logs to go on fire and a BBQ grill’s coals to burn. Please just don’t use it on your hair, no matter how late you are in the morning. The Looftlighter retails for $79.99 at ThinkGeek.
