Grass Flip Flops from Krispy Kreme!

Here’s the most comfortable looking flip flops branded as Krispy Kreme.  I have no idea why anyone would make these for the donut conglomerate but it sure looks comfortable and I might have to get one to test out against my current bamboo flip flops.

It’s probably a PR stunt by Krispy Kreme but I do like the fact that you can grow grass on your flip flops while having to enjoy them.

Think of it this way, you get to go outside for a walk in the grass without actually going anywhere.

Samsung Eco-Friendly Cellphone made from Corn!

With everyone in the industry and consumers going green, Samsung has no choice but to follow in people’s footsteps by introducing an Eco-Friendly cellphone made from corn.

Now, I kinda like this concept of making phones from edibles.  Will they make some new phones out of milk too?  Even better, maybe they can use barley, the same stuff used for making my favorite beverage.

The E200 features a 1.3 megapixel camera, video messaging capabilities and an MP3 player.

Although the device will be available in Europe next month, it do

EcoJohn – Eco Toilet Incinerates your Poop!

This has to be the coolest eco-frienldy device for taking a dump.  It’s an Eco Toilet that works by incinerating your poop to white powder.  Even better, the incinerated poop can be used for adding nutrition to your plants.

With the Eco Toilet in the works, we will no longer need long septic pipes to our houses, just one little toilet that does the job for you.

Of course, I have not tested this unit.  The only thing I am afraid of is the fact that it’s going to smell somew

Have you ever wondered what lightening looks like in slow motion?

Well, as you can see in this video, things are not always what they seem.

You can see all steps of lightning. First the stepped leader (clound-t-ground), second the upward leader (from tower), third the attachment between these two leaders, 4th the RETURN STROKE (the main stroke of a discharge) and after, the subsequent strokes.

Sun Table for Outdoor Laptopping!

Need to work outdoors because you need some air?  Don’t worry as the Sun Table will let you do that while your laptop is charged by the large solar panels embedded in the table.

The outdoor solar table lets you power up your laptop, via the Suns rays. The table is rather long, and would hold plenty of items, aside from your PC use. It is also water-resistant. The table is a neat idea, and would be great for those who spend a good deal of time on the internet.

Diesel Porsche Cayenne in 2010!

With the latest oil crisis and prices of everything increasing (and not stopping either), car manufacturers are forced to be more creative.

The good news is that Porsche Cayenne might be coming with a hybrid engine by 2010, all with a diesel engine while horsepower and torque remain the same.

I think I’d be looking really forward to a vegetable oil Porsche Cayenne. (Or at least they will have DIY kits for people who want to convert it)

Various news outlets have speculated that Porsche’s first-ever diesel engine would be in
