Bananas are super delicious but they do not last very long as they ripen and turn brown too fast. However, a company by the name of Del Monte has developed a new plastic wrap for bananas that promises to more than double their shelf life by keeping out air and moisture. Currently, they are conducting trials in 27 7-eleven stores around Dallas area. This could be a major breakthrough in resolving food wastage as a result of going bad.

Time to hire business plan writers and start getting yourself a distributorship. I am sure there are many other food products that require such packaging

Designer Handphone for Ferrari Lovers

Author: Alex  |  Category: Gadgets

Quite a while ago, I blogged about Porche creating their own line of kitchen cabinets targeting at man. How about designer hand phones that are designed by Ferrari designers.

Pininfarina, the company behind Ferrari, Maserati and Alfa cars, famous for its sleek and sexy sports car designs has been enlisted by Motorola to create dozens of mobile phones. Due to the lucrativeness of the mobile phone industries, companies are seeking ways to differentiate themselves to capture a bigger slice of the market share. According to Pininfarina, they would assign ten of its top-class designers to the project, to try to give the same allure to Motorola phones as they did with the sport cars.

I wonder whether they are going to use any of the Ferrari parts in their hand phones.

When I thought nothing can wow me anymore, here comes a company with a very innovative product. For parents with newborns, pediatric fevers is a great concern as it may bring further complications if the fever is not arrested quickly. Aiming to make such fevers more obvious sooner, UK-based Babyglow came up with an infant sleep suit that changes colour as the baby’s temperature rises.

When the temperature of the wearer’s body rises above the normal body temperature of 37 degrees C, the suit changes colour to trigger parents to immediately address the issue enabling parents to act faster to prevent overheating. The suit doe not require any form of power supply so whether you leave in destin condos in the jungle, it is still very useful.

A great idea indeed.

For dog lovers our there, now you can use GPS technology to ensure that you can track down your dogs easily. Precious prized dogs are usually prime targets for “dognappers”. If there is a way to easily tracked down your dog just like how some GPS system that helps to prevent car thefts, wouldn’t you go for it?

Introducing SpotLight, a new solution that uses GPS to help pet owners keep tabs on their little wanderers wherever they go. The SpotLight GPS Pet Locator also provides 24/7 animal-recovery service to assist owners to recover their pets.  Any time a dog ventures outside the programmed areas, an alert is sent to the owner via text message and/or email. It comes complete with a “rescue” button on the device to trigger the owner.

Come to think of it, parents can even put this collar on their child’s neck especially those who avoids the exam table.
