ZERA Turns Your Home’s Food Waste Into Ready-To-Use Fertilizer In 24 Hrs

You can’t call yourself a true tree-hugger if you are dumping 400 pounds of food waste year. I mean, on one hand, you are lobbying to keep the greens, but on the other, you are inevitably throwing food waste that ultimately ends up in a landfill. Now, that does not sound like a good thing, is it? And surely don’t make you a true green person. You can, however, reduce the food waste generated by you and your family by not eating, or you could turn those food waste into compose. But that leads to another set of problems. Home composting takes up large amount of space and it could take months, if not years to compost naturally. That’s not to mention the foul stench the process would create. This is an area which ZERA Food Recycler aims to address. Continue reading ZERA Turns Your Home’s Food Waste Into Ready-To-Use Fertilizer In 24 Hrs

Startup Develops A Plaster-like Patch That Indicates Alcohol Consumption

According to CDC, nearly 10,000 people were killed in 2014 in alcohol-impaired driving crashes and despite of the many PSAs, strict policing, the numbers aren’t getting any lower today. The key to reducing or even eliminating fatalities due to drink driving is responsible drinking. However, responsible drinking requires one to be informed. Though one may argue that if a person is stupid drunk, he or she may not even be capable of discerning the fact that he/she is drunk, but that’s besides the point. The point is, if there’s a more effective and easy way to stay inform of a person alcohol level, then it could make a huge difference between life and death.

Look, Another Underwater Drone, But This One Is The First To Record In 4K

Claiming itself as a professional-grade Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV), CCROV is indeed the first of its kind to offer 4K videoing capability. Unlike iBubble we saw earlier, this thing appears to be ready to get into the ocean and also, offered a much deeper depth of dive, going as deep down as 100 meters (328 feet). Six thrusters affords the ROV pretty much all the freedom of movement necessary while a removable and replaceable battery pack, located in the Tether Deployment System, provides up to an hour of operation in between charges.

Acton Blink Qu4tro Is A 4-wheel Drive Electric Skateboard That Goes 22 Miles

By now, electric skateboard is a commonplace and most electric skateboards function as they should, but if you look closer, they are also mostly single-wheel drive which anyone with basic electric know-how can cobble up one.

You heard that right. A four-wheel drive electric skateboard and that’s not something you see or read about everyday.

Meet 01, The Pen That Measures With A Surveyor’s Wheel-Like Roller

Most of us don’t carry a measuring tape or even ruler with us even knowing that it will come in handy. But that’s not surprising at all. Though tape measures and rulers are not cumbersome, they are a pain to bring along anyways and also, they are not exactly eye-pleasing and nobody likes a 30-cm ruler sticking out of their bags either. That’s not to mention the way to take measurement is kind of outdated, or at least, that’s what Instrumments thought when they embarked on the journey to discover a new way of measuring and the result is an innovative measuring instrument, simply called 01, that’s the size of a pen while capable of measuring everything from the circumference of your waist to the distance between picture frames to even the height of your kids.
