"Hovercrafts are not just very unique and unusual gifts, they are actually available. They only require gasoline and will transport you at approximately 15 mph. Operate them over concrete, asphalt, grass or shallow wet areas, but you cannot hover over water, sand, stones or dirt-filled areas due to the bottomside vacuum.
Speed and braking are controlled through two levers located on the steering bar. A kill switch automatically deactivates the Air Board in case you unexpectedly jump off, and steering is accomplished by simply shifting your body weight (like a surfboard or skateboard). The gas capacity is 1.3 gallons, which is good for 1 hour of use. Ideal if seeking very unusual gifts or ideas for those with it all. "

"Taking a camping utensil that can serve as a knife, fork and spoon to school. He was so excited about recently joining the Cub Scouts that he wanted to use it at lunch. School officials concluded that he had violated their zero-tolerance policy on weapons, and Zachary was suspended and now faces 45 days in the district¡¯s reform school.
Critics contend that zero-tolerance policies like those in the Christina district have led to sharp increases in suspensions and expulsions, often putting children on the streets or in other places where their behavior only worsens, and that the policies undermine the ability of school officials to use common sense in handling minor infractions.
"Something has to change," said Dodi Herbert, whose 13-year old son, Kyle, was suspended in May and ordered to attend the Christina district's reform school for 45 days after another student dropped a pocket knife in his lap. School officials declined to comment on the case for reasons of privacy.
Ms. Herbert, who said her son was a straight-A student, has since been home-schooling him instead of sending him to the reform school...
"I just think the other kids may tease me for being in trouble," he said, pausing before adding, "but I think the rules are what is wrong, not me."

The Applause Machine(October 2009) designed by Martin Smith. Just press the button and the Applause Machine enthusiastically claps its hands for you. Now you have four hands to applaud.

The Yellowbird Camera that records in 360 makes a photo 360 view look pretty one dimensional. Watch the demo video, you can press play and move the cursor in the direction that you want to see.
"A variant of the yellowBird camera is being utilized within the Google Streetview technology. The prominent difference is that the yellowBird camera records video instead of photographs. The camera uses six cleverly divided lenses in order to capture every possible viewing direction. The data stream generated by the camera is impressive. Through a double glass-fiber connection, a stream of 1200 Mbit per second is captured and saved in an uncompressed format. Next to the camera, a surround sound microphone system enables to record audio at 96 khz as well.
The yellowbird camera can be utilized in a variety of ways. First of all, videos can be captured from a regular tripod. Additionally the camera can be setup within a steadycam suit and "float" above the head of the camera operator. Furthermore, multiple connections support the camera to be mounted on a car or under a helicopter. "
"Just dip the Rotgutonix pen into a glass of alcohol (no mixers, please), and let it soak for 20 seconds. The pen¡¯s liquid-crystal display will tell you if you¡¯re about to drink some real whiskey or some nasty rotgut, it¡¯ll tell you. While I don¡¯t usually frequent bars that serve things in a jug marked ¡°XXX¡±, apparently the serving of nasty bottom-shelf stuff in the wrong bottle is a more common practice in Europe than it is here in the States. As a matter of fact, product designer Emilio Alarc¨®n decided to create the gadget after he had a bad run-in with a couple of glasses of headache and nausea-inducing rotgut in Spain."
