The Bladeless Fan – technology found in jet engines to generate a cooling air

fan bladeless

The Bladeless Fan.

Winner of Time magazine’s “Best Inventions” award, this is the fan that uses technology found in jet engines to generate a cooling air stream without any blades.  A turbine inside the base draws in air and propels it up to the loop amplifier. Air is expelled through a 1-mm slot along the circumference of the loop amplifier and across a 16º airfoil-shaped ramp. Using the aerodynamic principles of inducement and entrainment, the fan draws air from behind and along its sides into the air stream, generating optimal air velocity. The bladeless fan produces a smooth, uninterrupted stream of air, unlike typical fan blades that “chop” air into uneven, intermittent breezes. A dial allows smooth, continuous adjustment of air velocity. The fan’s 5 1/2″-diameter base sets up unobtrusively on a desktop or table, it oscillates 90º, and tilts 10º up or down.

Ear Pressure Equaliser – Relief from blocked ear pressure

earreliefpressure  Ear Pressure Equaliser – Relief from blocked ear pressure

Instant relief from ‘blocked’ ears and ear pressure pain. This pressure equaliser was invented by an Ear, Nose and Throat specialist, so it’s entirely safe to use. Rising external pressure during flights, mountain climbing, skiing or diving etc slightly deforms our eardrums, and the resulting ‘blockage’ can be severely painful. This gadget works by producing a counteractive negative pressure inside your ear, relaxing the ear drum and Eustachian tube to allow air back into the middle ear. It’s a neat pocket size so it’s easy to carry with you, and a safety valve limits the suction force so it can never create too much pressure. Simply unwind the tube and insert the earpiece in your ear, then press the membrane gently for instant relief.

  • Safe for any age 3 years +
  • CE tested
  • Complies with Medical Directive 93/42/EC
  • Australian TV innovation award winner on ‘The New Inventors’
  • Comes with 3 ear piece sizes
  • Manufacturer’s 2-year guarantee
  • 3½” x 2” x 1” (9 x 5.2 x 2.5cm)

Reevu Motorcycle helmets will transform your motorcycling experience – Rear view

reevu rearview

motorcycle rearview

Reevu brings the benefits of its revolutionary rear view technology to the world of motorsports

When you wear a Reevu Motorbike helmet your view of the road ahead is not affected in any way. The view behind, however, is so dramatically transformed – you can see the road behind you with your peripheral vision

Our customers have commented that after a short period of time, you are able to maintain awareness of the road ahead and behind without making a conscious effort. This means no more shaky steering when you are looking over your shoulder and no loss of vision of the road ahead when you are looking behind you!

Quite simply, Reevu Motorcycle helmets will transform your motorcycling experience. We still, however, encourage motorcyclists to make that all-important check over their shoulders before making any manoeuvres.

treadmill bike

Have you ever wished you could get a quality treadmill workout without paying expensive gym prices? Look no further than the Treadmill Bike by the Bicycle Forest. The Treadmill Bike offers the same fat burning benefits of a conventional treadmill without the membership fees!

Still not convinced that the Treadmill Bike is right for you? Consider these key benefits:

  • When the weather’s nice, the last place you want to be is cooped up in some stuffy gym. Imagine running through evergreen forests or strolling down country roads. All of this is possible thanks to the rugged design and all terrain tires on the revolutionary Treadmill Bike.
  • The Treadmill Bike’s hard wearing belt offers a sure grip while protecting your feet from dirt and other contaminants commonly found on the earth’s surface.
  • Because the Treadmill Bike is also a mode of transportation, use it instead of your car for everyday tasks such as shopping, and traveling to school or your place of work.
  • Thinking of taking the Treadmill Bike to the grocery store? Be sure to stock up on ice cream while you’re there. You will have earned it.
  • Treadmill Biking is fun for the whole family. The variable resistance feature* means that treadmill bikers of different abilities can workout together and no one will get left behind.
  • Today’s urban landscape is increasingly dominated by large SUV’s and multilane roadways. The Treadmill Bike’s elevated running platform means you’ll be seen over the hood of even the most heinously overbuilt motor vehicle.

The Urban Wheelchair is a fully electric lifting wheelchair

modernwheelchair  The Urban Wheelchair is a fully electric lifting wheelchair

The Urban Wheelchair is a fully electric, lifting wheelchair that has been designed to address issues faced everyday by wheelchair users in an urban environment.  The main design feature is the lifting mechanism, which allows the user to be effortlessly lifted into an upright position so that may improve their reach and also help instigate face-to-face conversation.

The concept uses hubless wheels to give a modern aesthetic but also increases efficiency, using a tightly packed ball bearing system to reduce rolling resistance.  Designed to be as lightweight, yet as strong as possible, the concept is made from the highest quality materials, predominantly Grade 5 Titanium.  The side panels and wheel housings are mass-produced using casting technology, but the seat is manufactures using a rapid manufacturing technique called Selective Laser Sintering.  This digital manufacturing process enables each individual user to have an MRI scan of their body, which then allows the seat area to be molded to the exact size and shape of the user.  This customisation will remove many comfort issues currently found with traditional wheelchairs.

Powered by two Lithium-ion batteries, found either side of the seat, the Urban Wheelchair is a completely rechargeable unit and can run for a short period on one battery while the other is being charged.  These also power the 12v linear actuators which provide the lifting mechanism for the seat.

Shadow eBike – Transports you and charges your gadgets at the same time

shadow bike
