Athletic Track's Squared-Off Lanes Impress Officials, Inhibit Runners

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. When funding cuts give you a damaged athletic track, you... cut corners and pave the turns into right angles? That's exactly what staff at a Heilongjiang, China sports center did when governmental bigwigs sprung a surprise visit and employees wanted the track to look sharp.

Researchers At GE Are Working On A Universal Calorie Counter

The tech market has been flooded with activity trackers and apps that allow you to account for your daily food intake. However, with all of this new technology, you still have to log in what and how much you eat, in order to get an accurate estimate of calorie consumption. There is nothing on the market that can automatically give you a calorie estimate of a meal. However, researchers from GE may give you that product sooner than you think.

Enjoy Hot Beverages And Food While Camping With The Solar Kettle

How many times have you been camping only to miss the comfort of your early morning coffee?

Add Chalktrail To Your Kid's Bike Or Scooter For Artistic Exercise

I can remember my long, youthful days of summer at the community pool, fierce neighborhood kickball games, and evenings of catching fireflies. I also remember riding my bike for hours each day. The feeling of freedom while riding to a friend’s house or the exhilaration of speed while flying down a steep hill would have only been made better if I could have shouted, “Eat my chalk dust!” Chalktrail will let your kids do just that. But more importantly, by adding a piece of sidewalk chalk to your kid’s bike or scooter, Chalktrail will let your kids create artwork while getting some exercise. The makers of Chalktrail like to call this blend of activity and artistic creativity, “Artivity.”

Bugaboo Donkey Stroller: Making Life With Twins Easier?

I saw a tagline on Bugaboo’s website—a Dutch company specializing in strollers—stating, “Going out with twins has never been easier—or as comfortable!” Oh, yeah? I have twins. Nothing about going out with them is easy. And if anyone is going to be comfortable while we are out, I want it to be me. But, I am always willing to take suggestions on making my life easier, so I kept most of my snarky comments to myself and read more about the Bugaboo Donkey Twin stroller. It’s pretty sweet.

PUSH Is A Fitness Tracker That Measures Strength

You can scour the sporting goods stores and online markets, and you won't find a fitness tracker that measures strength and power, until now. Until PUSH.

VIGATAR is a machine that will allow kids (and adults) to play video games while still being active. It is an exercise machine that doubles as a video game controller.

Stay Cool While Camping With The Coleman Lighted Tent Fan

It's always good to have a lantern while camping. It's always good to have a fan while camping in the spring and summer. It's best to have both in one gadget. That's exactly what the Coleman Lighted Tent Fan CPX 6 is--a lantern that doubles as a fan.
