Gravity Scale Measures Your Luggage!

Here’s a rather great idea for measuring your luggage, a gravity scale that works with elastic bands and whatnot.  This is just an idea for now but I think it has some good uses without actually having to carry around an expensive digital scale.  And probably cheap to make this too.

$21,000 Wheel Speakers!

Yes, this $21,000 wheel-like speakers will blow you off as I would never pay that much for speakers.
