VibriSee: Ain't Those The Cat's Whiskers?

Reflective lights and clothing let bicyclists be seen at night, but one invention, created by students at California State University Long Beach, went a few steps further.... They created VibriSee, cat-like whiskers for your bike that make the bike and the biker more visible in daylight as well as at night.  And though the whiskers may look like a cat's, their biomimetic functions are actually more like peacocks, rodents, octopuses, and ctenophores.


Champ Boxing Couch Doubles As A Punching Bag

Things that have multiple uses or double for other things are awesome. I mean the Swiss Army Knife is a classic, and many a guest has saved their backs a terrible night's sleep because of the sofa bed.

Necklace Calls You Automatically So You Can Avoid Awkward Situations

Awkward situations are well, awkward. And as much as we'd like to envision turning and running away at full speed when faced with one (that can't just be mine), dealing with these things in the real world requires more tact. But there's no rule that says you have to do the mature thing and tackle awkward head on, not when a new accessory gives you the perfect out.

Love & War: Ferrari 458 Italia Camouflage Edition By Lapo Elkann

Fiat heir and possible future Ferrari boss Lapo Elkann is into camouflage these days, which one might think would conflict with his passion for all things Prancing Horse. Think again: Elkann's military makeover of a box-stock Ferrari 458 Italia – complete with chromed peace sign – would win any fashion war in a heartbeat.

Turn Dumbbells Into Kettlebells With KettleShell

The KettleShell: it's nothing more than a sort-of handle that looks like a coat hanger. It does nothing more than attach to a regular dumbbell. However that simple design and simple concept transform one piece of exercise equipment into another and expand the variety of exercises you can perform with it, which makes it ideal for those looking to consolidate or save money in their home gym.

Eight Old Chinese Cars You've Probably Never Seen... And Never Will

In a bid to reduce smog in its major cities, China is aiming to “eliminate” more than five million older cars... sort of like Cash For Clunkers but without the cash. What's an older Chinese car look like, you ask? We found 8 examples worth a look-see before they go to the crusher.
