This "in-your-face" super-sport, all terrain vehicle innovates in both body styling and ergonomics to provide optimum comfort and safety without sacrificing the all important elements of fun and high visibility. New design features include the industry's first front wheel integral fenders to substantially reduce mud splash on both rider and machine and a cowling design that provides the rider with maximum lighting.
Cut this lock in several places and it will remain undefeated. Put it on the steering wheel in any configuration and it is ready to be locked. This is a high-quality, aesthetically refined anti-auto theft device with a unique airbag protector.
If the controls on a boat operated like a computer mouse, docking might not be as intimidating for novice boaters. That's the concept behind this fingertip control interface that sits subtly next to the steering wheel like a raised set of stainless circles. Moving the control in any direction including sideways will send the boat in that exact direction. Control Max opens boating up to many would-be buyers.

Few orbital sanders on the market accommodate a wide range of user abilities. The tapering body of this design could fit any sized hand and the tilt can be adjusted for left or right-handed users. Soft absorbing surfaces reduce the fatigue caused by vibration and noise. Controls are minimal and easily marked and because it is cordless it offers complete mobility.
…unless you play the game by the rules. This educational board game is the first to challenge family members on their knowledge of fire safety in and around the home. It includes a dry erase section for family members to plan out escape routes.
MP3s are a new technology in a borrowed exterior. Instead of copying the discman design, this wrist-pad version has a large tactile surface with a varied set of live interaction capabilities. The user can mix, manipulate and experience the music by touching the surface as if he were drawing in the sand. The Chameleon speaker attaches to the user's shoulder for personal or group listening.
Instead of risking the lives of rescue personnel to search for survivors in confined and unsafe areas, the rescue team could use this remote control airborne surveillance system. It's small enough to gain access to tight areas and, like military aircraft, can take off and land vertically. The manta ray shape communicates grace and power.
Carry a bubble light around and it's sure to spark up a conversation. It's one cool light bulb. By using silicon and LEDs, the designer created a squishy bulb that doesn't get hot and can be recharged for up to 10 years. Best of all, it lights up the imagination as people generate all sorts of ideas for its use.
