Scarab is Small, Scarab is Fast, Scarab is Hot

Think hand-held pocket bikes! Mini Cooper small edition! Smart Car ant size! All of these are just basically giants compared to the hot insect-style transport. It is called the Scarab. It’s got multiple driving modes: fast to slow, perfect park mode, sensors, Lidar, radar, transponders, GPS, guns, knives, sharp sticks!

RainLight Won't Follow Charlie Brown Around

RainLight Won’t Follow Charlie Brown Around

In a similar vein as the Melting Light from last week, Charles Kalpakian’s RainLight re-imagines falling water as a source of light.  When prodded by observers, the neon tubes come alive and illuminate whatever sad room you’ve placed a glass rain cloud in.  I’d say it would be the perfect lamp for a good depressing book, like The Bell Jar or Flowers for Algernon.

Roofus, Man's Best Friend

Roofus, Man’s Best Friend

Shoveling snow looks like a hell of a job at the best of times, but when faced with commercial sized buildings, apparently it’s so bad it takes up to 25 men to get the job done. That’s where the humorously named “Roofus” comes in.

Global Warming Reminder

Global Warming Reminder

We all know the global warming is a fact, but what most people don’t know is that “dirty snow” is a crucial contributor to global warming. Researchers have measured how snowy landscapes tainted by carbon particles created from inefficiently burned fuels, vehicles’ emissions and forest fires are absorbing more of the sun’s heat than the less sooty snow normally found in the arctic. Findings also indicate dirty snow is responsible for at least 20% of global warming.

I Want Everything in Containers, OXO Pop Review

I Want Everything in Containers, OXO Pop Review

Okay I need to spread the word. A few months ago the OXO company sent me a bunch of their OXO Pop containers for review. I’ve never been one to store things in containers because I only buy enough of anything for immediate use. But things like cereals, rice, and pasta are bulk items. I’ve been on a container storing binge because the OXO Pop containers actually work. Hey, they won the Red Dot 2008 Product Design Award so there’s way more than meets the eye here.
