Locust Bike a Good Investment?


It has been years since I've ridden a bike, other than a stationary fitness bike. I've thought about it a lot, but never really did anything to get back on one. Besides, there aren't many places around where I live to ride a bike without needing to drive several miles to a park. I could risk the busy streets, but I think my bravery flew out the window as soon as I had kids.

Then a few months ago my daughter received a bike as a gift and it got me thinking about how nice it would be to go bike riding with her, even if just at the park. It would give us a chance to bond more and exercise together. read more »

Belts for Kids - I Can Do It Myself!


What do you get when you cross a willful, stubborn, potty-training toddler with baggy, saggy jeans?

Truthfully, I don't want to know. But thanks to sister inventors Talia Bahr Goldfarb and Danielle Bahr Eason, kids now have a simple way to keep their pants above their knees. Their solution? Myself Belts. These innovative belts snap around the first belt loop (so it remains attached at all times). After sliding the belt through the rest of the loops, the child simply secures the end with the Velco closure. This design allows little ones to pull and tighten one-handed without the belt coming out of the loops, and without any tricky buckles to manage. read more »

The radio is so near you, it's on your head! It's AM/FM stereo, has nice cushy earphones, great sound, and an Ni-MH battery charged by none other than the sun!

Unlike your garden's solar lights, you don't have to wait until dark to listen to the SoltronixTM Headphone Radio. The battery needs light to charge, but once it's powered, it will play for hours, day or night, outside or in. read more »

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.

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 »

Yellow Pages Booster Seat


When I was a kid, I remember every Thanksgiving following my uncle into the hallway so he could retrieve the phone book from his closet.

Reluctantly, I re-lived that glorious holiday again when I came across Boost, the Yellow Pages booster seat. read more »
