Mollers Flying Car?!?

Since 1984, Moller International has been working on the Sky Car concept. Test flights of various prototypes have been performed since 1989. Dozens of TV and magazine articles since 1998 have profiled the company and the dream. Now, the company is launching its first product!


It's NOT the full-flight Sky Car M400 that's available, though. It's the 10ft hovering M200G.



It can carry up to 250lbs at 50MPH. FLight times are expected to be about 45-90 minutes, depending upon speed (I expect the 250 pounder going 50MPH won't have to be in the air more than 45 or so. Taking orders now, but not a fixed price to be found, only that "Depending upon engine production volume the M200G price could start as low as $90,000".

Have fun, kiddos!

Ring

My alarm wakes up the entire family. When I get up, they get up. There's something about having barely-awake but needy 2 and 4 year olds running around that suck all the productivity out of the morning! Enter "Ring".

I saw this on Yanko Design and SlashGear, and thought it was pretty handy (pun intended).


Placed in the charging station, you can set alarm times for each of the two adjustable rings. At the prescribed time, the ring vibrates on your finger to wake you, and only you.

zBoost

Have signal trouble at home? In the office? Not any more! Turn your 1-bar signal into 5-bars with zBoost!

This signal extender works with CDMA, GSM, TDMA AMPS, GPRS, EDGE, 1xRTT, and EVDO (everyone but Nextel).


The only downside I can see is cost: $249.99.

Phoebe Electric Radiator

Not that I have a spot in my home that's classy enough for this...


This is an electric radiator at its core, surrounded by plates that act as heat disappators to move the warmth over a greater area. Mr. Smith Studio.
