The Half Acre Natural Attractant Mosquito Trap

mosquito trap

Winner of the Ideas, Inventions, and Novelties Exhibition (IENA) award for invention, this is the superior insect trap that uses no pesticides, yet mimics the natural conditions of human habitation by emitting light, warmth, and carbon dioxide to attract, trap, and kill nuisance insects. Unlike propane gas systems that require refills, or electrocution systems that pose sanitation problems by releasing pathogens into the air when an insect is disintegrated, carbon dioxide attractant is generated when warm ultraviolet rays from two fluorescent bulbs irradiate the trap’s funnel which is coated with titanium dioxide; carbon dioxide is the same gas expelled by humans during respiration and is the primary source of attraction for mosquitoes. Once insects enter the funnel at the upper part of the trap, they are suctioned and immobilized into the trap’s retaining cage by a quiet fan where they remain until they die of dehydration. The trap has a range of a half acre, and it can be used indoors or outdoors;

Flying Alarm Clock

flying alarm clock

My, how time flies…ugh. I can’t believe I just said that…

It’s not that we’ve gotten lazy as a species, far from it! We’re more productive now than we’ve ever been, but with more and more work to do, we have to create time by cutting down on late night raids on Molten Core, ordering fast-food, talking on the phone while driving… The only time we have left is spent sleeping. Now you have to stay up late and get up early in an effort to get more done.

Waking up after a pitiful five hours of sleep has its own challenges, though. At ThinkGeek, we’re always looking for new ways to haul your lazy butt out of bed. Normal alarm clocks wake you up with loud noises to jar you into wakefulness, however we’ve become accustomed to the snooze-bar… Now, it’s become muscular instinct to flail your hands roughly in the direction of the noise, and smack! Nine more minutes of blissful unconsciousness. No more.

    amPlug VOX Mini Guitar Am

    guitar amplug

    Rock in Your Pocket

    • Pocket size guitar amp with real tube-amp sound
    • Plugs directly into your guitar or bass
    • AUX in jack lets you jam along to your mp3 player

    Practicing those hot guitar licks can be a bit of an inconvenience when you need to lug around a big heavy guitar amp. But Korg has got you covered with the amPlug VOX Mini Guitar Amp. These tiny amps plug directly into your guitar to give you truly amazing sound… and that is no exaggeration. The Amplug amps sound just the full size VOX amps they are based on, but instead of waking up the neighborhood you plug in headphones for personal listening.

    Even with its ultra-compact size, the amPlug perfectly reproduces the complex and warm distortion that is distinctive of a vacuum tube, as well as the powerful high gain produced by a large amp stack.

    Pocket Radar Faster than a speeding bullet

    pocket radar

    Faster than a speeding bullet? Now you’ll know!

    • K-Band Handheld Doppler Speed Radar
    • Measures from: 7 MPH to 375 MPH (11 KPH to 600 KPH)
    • Easy to Use One-Button “Point and Shoot” Interface

    We’re pretty sure you won’t run into Superman anytime soon. At least not the real Superman. (Don’t tell us he’s just a character in a comic book. We don’t believe you. Santa’s real, too.) You may bump into some imitation Supermen at your local comic-con, but we can assure you that they do not break speeds of 3 MPH. In fact, they’re often much slower, especially if the convention is crowded and/or there’s a Slave Leia nearby. But if you did bump into the real Superman, you could whip out your Pocket Radar and verify that his speed was indeed faster than a speeding bullet.

    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.
