FreeLoader 8.0 - Solar Gadget Battery Charger

FreeLoader 8.0 - Solar Gadget Battery Charger I Just hate it when my Ipod Touch runs out of power at the beach. FreeLoader can save aggravation of looking for a plug to recharge your gadget.

Using the sun, it can solar charge just about any gadget on the market it has direct connectivity for the iPhone and the iTouch. When completely charged, the FreeLoader 8.0 can power an PDA for 22 hours, a mobile phone for 44 hours, a PSP for 2.5 hours and a iPod Touch for 18 hours.

Looks like my Ipod Touch is in for much more of a workout these days at the beach.

sQuba Submarine Car - Secret Underwater Program

sQuba Submarine Car - Secret Underwater Program.

The pioneering Swiss car designer Frank Rinderknecht has created the sQuba, a vehicle that can go on land, sea and beneath the surface.

In the movie The Spy who loved me, James Bond, played by Roger Moore, avoids the grasp of the ominously large bad guy "Jaws" by driving his Lotus Esprit Turbo into the ocean.

Just like its inspiration, the sQuba is built on the chassis of a Lotus.

Knowing it would be too hard to make a car totally watertight, Rinderknecht designed the sQuba to be open roofed.

If driven into water it will float and operate as a boat.

Two propellers positioned on both sides of the rear plate push it along.

Hit a button and the car will dive.

Under water, one of its three battery powered engines sucks in water through the car's front and pumps it out of the rear jet.

Pretty Cool automobile check out the video below

Parasitic Worm Slimming Aids - Lose Fat Instantly

Parasitic Worm Slimming Aids - Lose Fat Instantly

Worms All the rage in Hong Kong to help you lose weight, Maybe not.
I would really hope that a medical doctor would not issue this treatment or really hope nobody would actually need. Hong Kong health officials have let dieters know that eating parasitic worms is not a good way to lose weight.
The Hong Kong health officials issued warnings came after banner ads appeared on a website offering a product containing worm eggs as slimming aids.
A health department official noted that there was no studies that the worms an intestine dwelling worm known as ascaris were able to help lose weight. There was a ton of evidence that they cause diarrhea, vomiting and also used as a pain-inducing technique.

The department official also mentioned that: 'Ascaris infestation in the human body may also be fatal due to serious complications such as intestinal, biliary tract or pancreatic duct obstruction. The worms may invade such organs as the lungs.

I guess some people will do anything for a diet. Remember, if it doesn't sound OK with you its probably not a good idea. Also you can look for a Personal Trainer

Spy Satellite Taken Down - Where will the debris fall?

Spy Satellite Taken Down - Where will the debris fall?

I really am not one for conspiracy theories at all. Then again one needs to think, There have been some strange events over the past week.

1. A strange meteor flies across the sky and hits someplace in Washington state. This was seen by many people plus an airline pilot who's name was never disclosed. This happened the day before the satellite take down. No follow up stories after that.

2. Our Marines take down a spy satellite we own on the night of a full lunar eclipse. ( would like a refund for this bad product by the way) During the fullest phase of the lunar eclipse.

3. We are talking Spy Satellite here think about it, this machine is probably protected to the hilt from capture, anti-tampering devices that can possibly harm a large population.

I agree here that the satellite should be taken down since there are many unknowns about it to protect people. However, how safe is the falling junk and what type of contamination is possible?

Is it entirely possible some of the other countries feel that they have a right to complain? They just might know a little more than we do when it come to these gadgets and gizmo's.

Where will the debris land who will have to breath it in and live with it?

Pantyhose That Can Generate Power

U.S. scientists have developed Pantyhose that generates its own electricity, enough power to recharge an Iphone or ensure that a Ipod Shuffle never runs out of juice.

If made into a shirt, the fabric could harness power from its wearer simply walking around or even from a slight breeze.

The nanogenerator takes advantage of the properties of zinc oxide nanowires -- tiny wires 1,000 times smaller than the width of a human hair - woven into the fabric. The wires are formed into pairs of microscopic brush-like structures, shaped like a little cone.

One of the fibers in each pair is coated with gold and serves as an electrode. As the bristles brush together through a person's body movement, the wires convert the motion into electricity.

    Stupidest Police Sketch Ever - Have You Seen This Man

    In a world of stupidity and often bad information this is probably the most useless sketch used to catch a robber. The Royal Thai Police have released this sketch below of a bank robber and are asking anyone who may have seen him to contact them.

    He has mirrored visor for a face, no features and his black head is very bulbous - wait a moment, is it possible he is wearing a helmet?

    Mr Big Black Head is suspected of stealing 200,000 baht ($6,412 USD) from the Ladprao branch of the Government Savings Bank in Bangkok a few weeks ago.

    Police rigorously gathered witness statements which were corroborated to paint a perfect picture of the bank robber.Below is what they ended up with. I believe he is here in the United States now. A man that looked just like this passed me riding a motorcycle on the highway today.

    Backup-Pal - The First Universal Backup and Restore for Any Cell Phone

    Backup-Pal - The First Universal Backup and Restore for Any Cell Phone.

    Cell phones no longer serve as just communication devices - they are largely used as address books, calendars and organizers. As cell phones become more extensively used, the data carried within your cell phone becomes more valuable for you to protect it is extremely viable. This is where Backup-Pal comes in.

    In the USA about 37.5 million - 20% of cell phones are lost, stolen, damaged or tossed into a lake by a jealous girlfriend like mine was. According to most people, the most serious problem resulting from phone loss, theft, damage or Ex-girlfriends is not replacing the phone itself, but replacing the contacts stored in the cell phone. With over 1.8 billion cell subscribers worldwide, a simple backup with the ability to instantaneously backup cell phone contact data without the use of a computer or software is awesome, Backup-Pal Fills the void.

    When a cell phone is lost, you lose contact; the whole world stops. Getting in touch again requires calling, emailing and using any means necessary to gather contact information from business relations, friends and family. In many instances, important numbers are lost, leading to potential social disasters and lost business opportunities. Backup-Pal protects against just that.

    The best thing about Backup-Pal, I can now buy a new phone and not have to worry about manually inputting all 375 of my contacts one by one I just push a button and Backup-Pal does the rest!

    Your Time Is Limited, So Don’t Waste It living Someone Else's Life

    “Your time is limited, So don’t waste it living someone else's life. Don’t be trapped by Dogma – which is living with the results of other peoples thinking.

    Don’t let the noise of others opinions drown out your own inner voice and most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become, Everything else is secondary.” – Steve Jobs
