Wouldn’t it be great if someone who can invent a great portable gym equipment for those who travel frequently. It can be quite cumbersome to look for a work out place especially for  those who are on strict training programs. Most of the time, people tends to put on weight or get less healthier when they start to travel heavily.

The design should be versatile and affordable at the same time allows the user to get a total body workout. Jerry Wesley saw this opportunity and invented the EZ-X. The compact, portable gym system features collapsible bars and interlocking weights so that the user can do a variety of different weight training exercises with one device. It includes resistance cords and more.

Well, say good byes to weight loss pills and hello to EZ-X.

As concern for the environment grows, people have to start doing their part to conserve energy. There are opportunities to save energy if you keep your mind and eyes open.

One such case is energy entrepreneur Lucien Gambarota. He says an average person can produce 50 watts of electricity per hour on a treadmill. Each of these machines are equipped with a generator inside. The electricity produced by the machine is used to recharge a battery which is used to power part of the lighting system.

Imagine how many treadmills are there around you. That equals to the potential income you can generate.

As the new year begins, most people have intentions to loose weight. As the saying goes “You can’t manage what you can’t measure”, wouldn’t it be great if you can keep track of your calories?

James Park a serial entrepreneur saw an opportunity not to be missed. The result of his innovative mind is a $99 lipstick-size gadget that clips on to your clothes and uses a motion sensor to track everything from steps taken to sleep patterns and calories burned.

The Fitbit Tracker information can be uploaded to a wireless base station, which relays it to a Web site for analysis. This motivates people to get in shape by letting them track daily exercise .

A great way to start a new year. For those who is tech savvy, time to put your IT and computer schools knowledge to good use.

Airpod – Car that Runs on Air

Author: Alex  |  Category: Environmental, Transportation

Electric cars now look like a thing of the past. Now Motor Development International (MDI) has come up with cars that actually runs on air with a little bit of fuel, ethanol or vegetable oil.

At a speed between 56 to 64 km per hour, its great for city centre driving. However, combine with diesel, biodiesel or biofuel to heat the compressed air, it cav even go up to a speed of 154 km per hour with fuel efficiency of 43 km per liter. Its great compare to the car which I am driving right now that sucks up 1 liter every 12km.

I wonder what’s next.  

Home Nursing

Author: Alex  |  Category: Services

If you are looking for a home business and like taking care of the elderly at the same time, why not consider a home nursing business?

With more people getting busier, there are plenty of senior citizens who may need nursing help. Currently, there are shortages of nurses around the world. Experts say the shortage will only worsen as baby boomers’ health care needs grow. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that more than 1 million nurses will be needed by 2010. Therefore, the situation with nursing right now is a supply-versus-demand issue. With the aging population, more people will require nursing care. Nursing is a stable profession even during downturn.

However, before deciding to pursue this business idea further, you should consider getting some qualification to gain credibility such as having a Master of Science in Nursing – Clinical Nurse Leader Masters Degree. You can find some very good online MS nursing. The course may be a worthwhile investment considering the fact that you will be able to recover the initial cost rather quickly.

An opportunity not to be missed.

New Age Motorcycle

Author: Alex  |  Category: Environmental, Transportation

I have written about green cars but not on green motorcycles yet. One such bike is the recently invented green motorcycle called Tango. Invented by two teenagers by the name of Ben Gulak and Jason Morrow, the sporty vehicle was invented as part of the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair.

You sit on the Tango just like you would on any other motorbike but with one major difference. There’s no hand steering controls. Instead, the rider leans in the direction of desired motion. 

This will be a cool addition to your range of environmental friendly vehicles. Hopefully by driving this vehicle the auto insurance quotes will not be affected too much.

With natural resources depleting quickly, nothing should be wasted. Consider a jumbo jet. What can you do to save a jumbo jet that is due to be sold as scrap metal? Why not turn it into a hostel? 

A Swedish entrepreneur by the name of Oscar Dios did exactly that. Dios stuffed 85 beds into a gutted Boeing 747 and dubbed it Jumbo Hostel. Parked right outside Stockholm’s Arland Airport, it contains 25 rooms equipped with  air conditioning, WIFI, toilets and bathroom light fixtures with a stunning view of the runway.
