Pop-up Oxygen Bars

Author: Alex  |  Category: Lifestyle

For those who are not aware what Oxygen bar is, it is basically a place where patrons can breath in non-medical, scented oxygen. At an oxygen bar, a dosage delivers 4 to 5 times the amount of oxygen present in normal air. With one intake, customers feels more alert, refreshed, full of energy and with a general good feeling. Oxygen bars have become a popular trend at night spots, malls and even fitness centers. They can also be found at trade shows, conventions and corporate meetings, as well as at private parties and promotional events. This may even be a fun but effective treatment for depression.

Since I have shared many pop-up business concepts, why not start a pop-up oxygen bars? Could work very well in commercial as well as office areas.

Butchery Class

Author: Alex  |  Category: Food

You may heard of cooking classes but have you heard of butchery classes. Apparently there is a craze going around and there are people who actually pays for classes conducted by butchers e.g. Ryan Farr.

This butchery class are perfect for those who wants to learn how to how to produce a selection of meats ready for the oven. A team of talented of butchers will select a range of cuts for the students. Students will also have the chance to learn how to separate the different cuts from a whole chicken and then how to tackle a whole beef feather blade, where pupils learn the correct way to trim the fat from the meat and the right technique to use when cutting the perfect braising steak.

All of a sudden, the butcher in the market has become somewhat a rock star. I think I need to start something as well. Maybe a class to teach people how to squeeze their pimple as fashionable acne solution.

Few months back, I blogged about a business idea based on a gym in a bus. This got me thinking whether we could some other businesses on a bus? Quick google landed me on a website that shared about a bus that has a restaurant setup in it.

The BUStaurant is a mobile restaurant in a double decker bus that is equipped with a full kitchen on the bottom level and an upstairs deck that can seat about 16. This is a fantastic idea for the tourism industry just like the Malaysian hop-on/off bus that tours the city area. Diners can have a great view of the city and have a great meal at the same time. In my opinion this idea can sell big time. Work with the bus company and also with the best web directories to start your marketing campaign. Any takers out there?

Meal Measure

As some experts say, you are what you eat and this could not be more true. I have an equation for you. Input + Process = Output. In this case, output is your weight. Input is what you eat. Process is the amount of calories you burn either naturally or through exercises.

The focus of this topic is on Input. This is not new but there are gadgets out there that can help the motivated dieter keep track of their caloric intake to help users lose weight quickly. Take for example Meal Measure. It is a gadget that is used to measure standard portion sizes directly onto your own dinner plate. The gadget contains three enclosed rings with the right size to measure the right amount of  protein, grains and starchy vegetables and non-starchy vegetables to get a well-balanced meal.

Forget about slimming pills. Choose a safer way to loose weight, which is to exercise. However, not many people has the discipline to exercise on a routine basis especially if you have very low willpower. What if there is a way to motivate or coax you to exercise? Wouldn’t that be great.

Well, Gruve a wearable fitness devices that measure the physical activity of users throughout their day and provides a real-time feedback to the users. An indicator on the device changes colour according to how much energy the wearer burned over the course of a day. It vibrates if the user has been inactive for too long reminding the users to start moving to lose some calories.

I see great potential in this device.

Design-it-online services is becoming more popular since the boom of internet. From food to clothing, things can be customized online before actual production and sale. Take for example Franklin + Gower, they let style-savvy men customize their trousers.

Visitors to Franklin + Gower’s website can choose from a wide array of fabric selection and then pick seams in designer fabrics, retro prints or a classic piping of their choice. The pants are then made to order in Los Angeles and flown to respective destinations. That way, customers can get their pants tailored within their own home saving the hassle of traveling. Brilliant!

Here something for the interior designers and outdoor decoraters. Lighting is an important aspect of interior design and it makes a lot of difference when comes to the choice of lights that are used. Well…if you are looking for something more edgy and alternative, why not check out Rock and Royal? They create customize chandeliers with attitude fusing posh and punk to create chandeliers in the form of champagne bottle, skulls, guitars and etc. The chandeliers are not just a source of lighting but also an art piece that can be place strategically in a space to create the ambiance you are looking for.

It is a great example of taking a very traditional product and turning it into something fresh and newly desirable. I could see many interior designers that may need this kind of light pieces for interior as well as outdoor décors.

Well…this is something interesting for all tattoo lovers. Are you one of those people who is wondering whether you should get a tattoo or not? I use to be one them but never get myself to do that because I am not sure how it would look on me and if it does not look good, I am stuck with it.

Here comes TatMash, a site that lets users see what a real tattoo would look like on them before they really get it done. All you need to do is upload your photos and grad the tattoo’s image to the spot on their body where you would like to have it done. They have a wide array of tattoo design for you to choose (not too sure whether they have any tattoos for insurance advertising).

 So, if you own a tattoo parlor, this is a great way to differentiate yourself.

Eco Treadmill

Author: Alex  |  Category: Environmental, Gadgets

I have blogged about a gym that actually generates electricity through the use of exercise machines that converts human movements to electricity that can be stored in batteries.

Well… now this technology can even made available for those who works out at home. Introducing Woodway EcoMill treadmill. It is eco friendly where you not only exercise but also you actually  generate enough electricity to power the treadmill without even needing to plug it into the socket(wall) to draw electricity. The power generated is sufficient to keep the display up and running. It does this by utilizing Woodway’s near frictionless drive system.

I want to have one.
