The Innovative and Very Popular Boogie Board Electronic Notepad is the Green Alternative to Using Paper

January 31, 2013 Leave a comment


Join the Green movement by lowering dependence on paper with the Boogie Board 8.5 LCD Writing Tablet from Improv Electronics. Using just one of these tablets can save as much as 50,000 pieces of paper because it cuts out the need for sticky notes, memo pads, scrap paper, etc. Think about all the grocery lists thrown in the trash after being used and the to-do lists with a few chores on them that are crumpled up and thrown out afterwards. With this LCD Writing Tablet write out a grocery list and afterwards simply erase it from the board with the push of a button so it can be used for another paper-saving task. Weighing in at an ultra-light 4 ounces and a thickness of only a 1/8 inch make the Tablet ideal for use on the go too. Bring it with you to school or the office for note taking as an alternative to using scratch paper throughout the day. An included pen-like stylus makes writing or drawing as easy as it would be on a piece of paper. Can’t find the stylus or don’t feel like using one? No problem. The Boogie Board Writing Tablet can even be drawn or written on with a finger.

December 13, 2012 Leave a comment

spnKiX Motorized Skates are a fun and smart way to help save the environment by reducing dependency on cars to commute short distances. Using the spnKiX as an alternative to driving short distances can have a large impact on the environment by reducing CO2 emissions and cutting down on gas used which ultimately saves you money. The spnKiX Skates quickly and securely attach over your shoes with dual fasteners (similarly to bindings on a snowboard) and are powered by a integrated lithium-ion rechargeable battery that has a range of up to 6 miles per charge. Each spnKiX skate has its own independent motor and battery pack with a handheld wireless remote to control the speed for both feet. They have a max traveling speed of 10 mph and a max weight capacity of 200 lbs. spnKiX estimates that using their motorized skates in lieu of driving a car for short commutes just once a week can save you up to $300 in gas a year.

Turn Your Favorite Jersey or Shirt into Wall Art for Display

December 11, 2012 Leave a comment


A finalist for the Innovation Award at the 2012 Home and Housewares Show, the ShirtWhiz is the accessory all sports jersey collectors need to have. It allows collectors to display their favorite jerseys or shirts on the wall of a living room, bedroom, man cave, office or bar rather than keeping them bunched up and hidden in a closet. The ShirtWhiz is also a great way to display childhood jerseys or a child’s jersey to show them how proud you are. The ShirtWhiz comes with 18 pivot joints that snap together quickly and bend to provide a custom fit for any type of jersey regardless of size or style (basketball, baseball, football, etc). Hanging the ShirtWhiz is easy and simply requires a nail in the wall or adhesive hook when a nail is not an option, like in a dorm room. Because the ShirtWhiz rests on a nail or hook it is easy to take down in the event the jersey on display is going to be worn or replaced with a different one. It’s never been easier to show your pride for your favorite sports teams or simply show off your jersey collection thanks to the ShirtWhiz.

Turn Heads as You Glide Across the Surface of the Water

September 24, 2012 Leave a comment

Have you ever watched a waterbug glide across the surface of the water and wished you could do the same?

Well now you can with the AquaSkipper from Inventist. The AquaSkipper lets you fly across the surface of the water and get an exhilarating full body workout in the process. Made of aircraft grade aluminum, hydrofoil wings and a fiberglass spring the AquaSkipper will soar across the top of a body of water as the user hops up and down. The faster you hop, the faster you’ll go and the more intense of a workout you’ll get. Speeds of up to 17mph have even been recorded and a speed of at least 5mph will need to be reached in order for the AquaSkipper to work. The AquaSkipper is environmentally friendly to use as it does not cause water pollution, air pollution or noise pollution because it is powered by the user rather than an engine. Assembly and disassembly can be done in roughly 5-10 minutes making it easy to pack-up and bring with you on the go. The AquaSkipper has a minimum weight requirement of roughly 70 lbs and a maximum of roughly 250 lbs. In order to work the AquaSkipper must be started from above the water’s surface on something such as a boat or a dock in water at least 6.5 feet deep. Read more
