Given the volatile situation (political and natural) around most countries, I totally buy the idea of having an emergency phone around my space. Recent incidents of carnages and natural disasters imply that even a simple shopping, holiday or business trip can take an ugly turn instantaneously. This doesn’t mean that we stop traveling; it simply means we arm ourselves better. The Disposable Pre-Paid Phone could be that life-saving device, which could get you out of a sticky situation.

Mini has always had the most fun and creative marketing group. Here is yet another example taking advantage of people standing around staring at an empty conveyor belt. This would be the first time I would actually enjoy waiting for my luggage which is of course always the last one to come off the plane. I can’t figure out why other brands have not taken some notes from Mini. Oh wait, I know. No other brand has a fun factor to it.

It’s the future. Don’t kid yourself – even though there’s no flying cars or Sprocket dogs or anything, we’re in the future. Do you know what that means? That means we’ve gotta be basically saving what we’ve got left before we’re so far down in resources that it’s just silly. So what’s to be done? Let’s start right here with water. This is a project called “Misting”, a hand-washing station that uses no more than a shot glass of water per handwash.
This peculiar looking single occupancy vehicle is called the Eco & Ego. With a quirky name like that, you can expect a lot more wackiness inside.
The idea behind this “EE” car is pets, yes pets. Not a dog or cat, but a plant. The plant sits above the engine bay in clear sight of the driver. It’s hooked up to some futuristic electronics and can tell you how “polluted” you were that day. There’s also an extension to the idea in that you take your plant out every time you drive, sorta like walking your dog.
