Gadget uses electric vibrations to straighten your nose

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on February 8th, 2011

Women who can’t afford nose jobs in Japan have at least one more option now, thanks to the Electric Beauty Lift High Nose. The idea is that it will straighten your nose. And if you believe that, I have some swampland to sell you.

The Electric Beauty Lift High Nose supposedly uses electric vibrations to straighten your nose, while making you look ridiculous at the same time. Anyway, if this worked, there would be no crooked noses in the world.

The 40 Second Electric Toothbrush

Posted in Home by Conner Flynn on April 4th, 2010

We’ve never seen a toothbrush like this one before. These Hammacher Schlemmer super toothbrushes promise to clean all of your teeth in just 40 seconds. This bizarre looking device looks like it was designed to brush Predator teeth. It has four heads that will clean the front, back, and chewing surface of your top and bottom teeth all at the same time.

The brushes do their thing 810 times per minute and are mounted on self-adjusting pivoting heads. Sounds like a powerful cleaning. It uses two AA batteries which will give you 60 uses after a full 12-hour charge. It comes with four soft bristle brush heads and a tongue cleaner.

FedEx rolls out electric trucks

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on March 30th, 2010

FedEx wants to go greener, so this week it rolled out its first all-electric FedEx delivery trucks in the United States. Starting in June, FedEx will be sending the first four electric vans out on the roads of Los Angeles, saving energy as they go.

We have no idea just how much these vehicles cost, but the truck’s 80kWh battery alone is “well above the cost of a large luxury sedan,” according to FedEx’s VP of Global Vehicles John Formisano. We hope that despite high costs, FedEx continues with this and gets more of these trucks on the road.

Honda opens new solar hydrogen station

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on January 28th, 2010

Well look what we have here. When we weren’t looking, Honda has begun to operate its next generation solar hydrogen station prototype at the Los Angeles Center of Honda R&D America. The idea is that its a single, integrated unit which can be installed in any garage.

This Honda Solar Hydrogen Station is smaller than its predecessor and can produce enough hydrogen through an 8-hour overnight fill for the average daily commute (which is about 10,000 miles annually) for each fuel cell electric vehicle. Pretty handy being able to refill your vehicle overnight and you can sleep well while its filling, knowing that you are lowering CO2 emissions, since you take advantage of off-peak power rates. Daytime charging is solar power.

XO2 folding electric scootersWith more electric vehicles than ever hitting the streets, we’re going to see more electric scooters. The XO2 electric scooter has some interesting features, but the most interesting is that you can fold it up, making it easy to bring indoors for charging.

It’s still pretty big when folded, but it beats getting your ride stolen because you had to leave it outside. We’re talking 60km/h for the XO2 50 Urban and 105km/h for the XO2 125 Urban. The scooter will charge up to about 80% within just a few hours, and give you about 50-70km.

Zipit electric clamshell package openerAny gadget lover knows the frustration of trying to extract a new gadget or toy from it’s clamshell packaging. Each of us has probably stabbed or sliced ourselves just trying to open the packaging. Exacto knives work great, but your chances of injury increase dramatically. It’s a fact that many of us here at the ‘Brick have less than ten fingers. So why not have an electric gadget that will open these packages for you?

The ZIPIt simply slices through the demon package like butter. The device runs on 3 AA batteries. Just remove the protective cover, and slide your package into the end of the cutter. A few seconds later, your package will be open and all of your fingers will be intact.

They are starting in Cary North Carolina, where McDonalds will be the first to offer car recharging via the ChargePoint Networked Charging Stations.

Researchers develop standard smart charger for plug-in vehicles

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on May 4th, 2009

Researchers develop standard smart charger for plug-in vehiclesChargers for plug-in electric vehicles are nothing new, but the folks at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory have some smart plans for their new Smart Charger Controller. They hope that it might one day serve as a standard charger for all manner of electric vehicles.

Apparently each controller would be wirelessly linked to the local electric company, which would feed the controller power prices and other pertinent information so that it can charge during non-peak hours. That right there will save owners roughly $150 a year. It might even be able to sense “stress conditions” and shut down before the grid overloads.

Electric Shocking Mouse, for shocking people you don't likeIf you don’t like the people you work with, it may be time for some revenge. Start shocking them. The product never actually says how much of a jolt this will deliver, but they say that it’s “Without harm and hurt, just a surprise”. Then in the next line they say “Just press the key as the usual computer, they will jump and cry!”.

So this gadget will make them jump AND cry for only $5.99. Can’t ask for much more then that. The company also warns that it’s “Not recommended for children under 14 years old, adults over 50 years old, or persons with any medical conditions.”

Posted in Outdoors by Conner Flynn on April 3rd, 2009

Hustler Zeon electric mower all set to eat your grassThe Hustler Zeon is an all-electric lawnmower that has just come onto the market. No price yet, but we’re guessing it won’t be cheap. A full charge of 16 hours will give you 80 minutes of lawn eating time, and it’s silent since it’s electric. As a sweet bonus, it says Hustler on the side, so all your neighbors will think you won it by reading a skin mag.

You might notice that there´s no steering wheel, just two handles on each side of the seat, which will give you all of your steering. Top speed is seven miles per hour. It may not be the best looking lawn mower, but it beats pushing an old model.

Best Buy to Sell Brammo electric motorcycles

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on February 28th, 2009

Best Buy to Sell Brammo electric motorcyclesYou use Best Buy for TVs, washing machines, computer peripherals and cell phones, so why not use them to shop for a $12,000 electric motorcycle? Why the hell not? Brammo and Best Buy have plans to sell the $11,995 Enertia electric motorcycle at five West Coast Best Buy stores in May.

Eventually Brammo would like to sell bikes at every Best Buy location around the world, but they want to see how the initial test works out. They should probably have pimply faced geek squad dudes drive around on them for promotion. And so they are diverted from touching anyone’s computer.

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on February 19th, 2009

Wheego Whip electric car headed for AmericaOil prices have come down from their dramatic highs of last year, that doesn’t mean we should start burning more so called fossil fuels just because it’s cheap.
