Fear In A Can

Fear In A CanThese fear-in-a-can cans by Hoxton Monster Supplies are perfect: the unassuming typeface, color and laugh out loud descriptions make for a great gag gift. I’ll take a vague sense of unease and escalating panic please.

How about this for a ridiculous modern myth. There is a machine somewhere in America that can take virtually any sort of waste – offal from an abattoir, old tyres, junked computers – and turn it into high quality oil, plus pure minerals and clean water, all in a few hours. It is an invention that could change the world. Not only might it end the wests, and in particular Americas, dependence on imported oil, but it has also the potential simultaneously to solve the increasingly pressing problem of waste disposal.

The world’s first luxury electric bicycle is coming to earth soon!
Official reveal: 2010 EUROBIKE

Recently more and more electric bicycles are appearing city streets. While the new trend of electric bike development is a welcome improvement, it is flawed by heavy compromises. Most E-bikes available today are rather primitive machines. The majority of the electric bike kits contain no more than a hub motor and a frame-mounted battery cell. The development of these power assist vehicle models were not based on design, maximum range or maneuverability, but rather the functions they can offer. Most of these models are neither suitable to be used as bicycles, nor as successful e-bike. They offer a little of everything, but do not satisfy any specific requirement. They do what they were designed to: they take their riders from A to B, which is fine for some but not others.
