Homemade Soda Can Solar Furnace


Sometimes all you need to go green is an active imagination and some common sense. You don't need to have thousands of dollars to invest and you don't need to be an expert in any field either.

Product Review: The JumpSnap


When it comes to a challenge, unless it's illegal or immoral, I'm pretty much willing to accept it.

So, a little over a month ago, after reading my article, featuring the JumpSnap, the jump rope without a rope, Brad LaTour of JumpSnap challenged me to actually give the JumpSnap a try. I was happy to do so and rose to the challenge. After all, what's the worst that could happen? I'd exercise more?

One trial month later, I have to say, it isn't all that bad! But it isn't all that good either. What I mean to say is that I wasn't 100% satisfied. Still, I did see potential in the JumpSnap and believe with a few minor changes I could find myself appreciating this exercise tool and using it on a frequent basis. read more »

Invention Video: The 3000+ Inventions of Dr. NakaMats


Dr. Yoshiro NakaMats has shattered the world record for most patents held that was formerly held by Thomas Edison. He currently holds over 3000 patents and is Japan's most prolific inventors. One of this most influential inventions was the floppy disk, which he invented when he was 23 years old as a student.

BBC's series "Adam and Joe go Tokyo", interviews Dr. NakaMats. Adam and Joe Go Tokyo was a eight episode series that was aired on BBC Three and BBC One in 2003. The show was originally rumoured to be called Asian Invasion, and showed Adam and Joe looking at Japanese culture, music, meeting famous Japanese people and unforgettably trying to become famous in eight weeks.

This invention video is an amusing and fascinating opportunity to see Dr. NakaMats, one of the most prolific inventors of all time, show off a few of his inventions. I wonder how sales for his Love Spray is doing. You can learn more about Dr. NakaMats on his website Dr.Nakamats.com



The video is about 6 minutes long. Enjoy. read more »
