    Gamucci Cigarettes

    March 28, 2008

    I live with a smelly, stinky, second hand smoke providing smoker, so if the Gamucci cigarettes weren’t so expensive (50 pounds for one kit) this would be wonderful. He could continue to be addicted to nicotine and not kill anyone else in the process….

    They are rechargeable, electric cigarettes that offers smokers a chance of smoking in a much healthier way. They still get their nicotine hit, but suffer none of the negative side effects of smoking tobacco. The product is free of tar & other carcinogenic substances. It is non-flammable and without the danger of exposing the user to the 4000 chemical substances produced by normal cigarettes. It is pollution free and harmless to others. There isn’t the danger of second hand smoke. It is reusable so there is no problem with disposing of cigarette ends and there is no ash. It comes with two rechargeable batteries and is fuelled with 5 high strength cartridges, each with 16 mg of nicotine in them which is equal to 20 cigarettes.

    Drysystem

    March 26, 2008

    I often think about installing tile in my house but am always deterred by how labor-some it seems (since I’m too cheap to hire someone). Now Tau has developed the Drysystem which is a new dry tile laying system which does not require the use of any kind of glue or adhesive

    DrySystem® by TAU comprises a base made of a polymer which is bonded onto the ceramic tile. This base is tongued and grooved, which means that the various pieces can be assembled and slotted together seamlessly.

    Laptop Table

    March 13, 2008

    So recently I’ve been thinking about getting one of those things to put your laptop on while you use it and since they make the vents on the bottom, it would seem to make sense that it should be something that would allow the heat to escape. I only found a concept design so far….

    Photobucket

    This laptop concept called “Float Away” addresses heat by elevating the back end by integrating a lift bar into the design. Designer Young Hwan Kim

    This lap tray below doesn’t address the heat issue, but it looks good anyway and it does appear to have an indentation so perhaps that would help….

    Water Fountain

    I don’t imagine I’ll put too many water fountains on this site, but seeing how this one looks like this I thought I’d make an exception.

    I found it on an interior design site that says Santa & Cole manufacturers it, but I couldn’t find it.

    Spin the Bottle

    February 13, 2008

    Remember “Spin the Bottle”? The game of our youth lacked a bit of variety, so they’ve added a few plot twists. Some of those twists are G-Rated; others are closer to R or even, well, let’s just call it NC-17.

    The Universal Toilet is a flexible toilet design useable by both individuals with disabilities and the general population that removes the social stigma of handicapped facilities. For users with disabilities, even a dedicated handicapped toilet requires maneuvering, especially when in a wheelchair. With the Universal Toilet users don’t need to turn or twist but can simply slide forward off the wheelchair directly onto the toilet.
