Need This New Innovation? Leaf Me A Message

Sticky notes have been around for a long time -- ever since they were created by 3M in 1977. Since then they have taken on all sorts of shapes and sizes, and for all sorts of purposes. Perhaps one of the more creative lines of sticky notes is Leaf-It, a bunch of notes that look like they grow on trees. They come in oak, birch, maple, gingko, and ivy.

Strap Yourself In And Run With The FLIZ Pedal-Less Bike Concept

Is it really a bike if it doesn't have pedals? Even motorized bicycles have pedals. Even gear-less and chain-less bikes have pedals. The FLIZ Pedal-Less Bike has no pedals, yet it still calls itself a bike, though it looks more like the rider is hang-gliding.

Fordite: Fossilized Finishes From Detroit's Golden Age

Fordite (also known as Motor Agate) makes the perfect jewelry for any car nut.

A Safer Way To Travel With Your Dogs: Variocage

The Variocage is not for every pet owner, although I wish it were.  It seems to be one of the safest car crates around, especially for medium to large to very large dogs.  But you really need to dedicate your cargo compartment to the  Variocage because it's not at all easy to take in and out.  Nevertheless...

Want This New Innovation? Misfortune Cookies

Fortune cookies have been around for more than 100 years and, let's face it, there is nothing new about them. Wait a minute. Apparently there is Fortune Cookies: The Next Generation. They come in the form of the old fortune cookie style, but they hold much different little pieces of paper inside. Welcome the Misfortune Cookie!

Golfers, have you ever started a day of golfing a little late and weren't able to get in as many holes as you would've liked?

Want This New Innovation? Safety Bananas
