Different Car Seat " Smart "
Researchers from the University of Tokyo, Oita University, the Shimane Institute of Health Science and Delta Tooling, an industrial equipment manufacturer, have developed a prototype smart car seat able of detecting when its occupant is on the verge of falling asleep. Though the seat can sense when the driver is sleepy, it is not yet equipped to respond. The next step will be to outfit the seat with an alarm function that is automatically activated when its occupant becomes drowsy. The researchers hope to make the smart seat commercially probably within five years.

Bulgaria dreams
In Nowadays, Internet becomes a great and important source in the world of communication, people uses it for different types of work, is now more accessible than before. Take advantage of this tool is a smart choice, and I use it to make investments. Yesterday I spent nearly 2 hours searching information about the property market in Bulgaria and one site take my attention, called Bulgaria Dreams. This site offers a lot of information for investors that want to put their money in this country, I would like to remember that actually Bulgaria his country is one of the most popular locations for European investors. Located in South Eastern Europe, Bulgaria situated in the heart of the Balkan Peninsula and boasts an old and rich history. Many of the world's greatest cultures have inhabited this beautiful country, leaving behind a veritable treasure trove of untold historical riches. Bulgaria has a temperate climate, with cold damp winters and hot dry summers. Over 150 days of sunshine a year, with average summer temperatures of 79ºF and occasionally climbing to a sizzling 95ºF. Flights are only two and a half to three hours from the UK or Ireland. Low-cost airlines are entering the market and the number of direct flights is increasing. In Bulgaria, investment property is a smart move that can bring considerable profit within a relatively short time period, so if you’re looking for this kind of investments instead funds, deposits or stocks take a look at Bulgaria dreams for more information.

Ideal for emergencies
We all know that our methods of life are extremely vulnerable to any kind of financial problems that could appear momentarily without our knowledge, and we must be preparing for that. Actually one of the most popular financial instruments to secure against our future paycheck is the payday loan. A payday loan is a small, short-term loan without a credit check that is intended to bridge the borrower's cashflow gap between pay days, and is ideal for emergencies and more. A payday loan might sound like the answer to our cash flow problems, is the fastest and easiest way to borrow money online with funds deposited directly into our checking account. Last night I spent some time searching on the web to find more information regarding this financial instrument due the fact that is also here a very popular instrument. You know, there are many payday loan offers on the Internet, but they are not equal. Do not fall to the temptation of applying to the first one you see, however one takes my attention due to the simplicity of the process, it’s called Power Payday Loan, a company with professionals specialised in Payday Loans. Applying for a payday loan with Power Payday loan is simple, the only thing you need to worry about is filling out your online application with the most up-to-date information you have about your working situation and they'll take care of the rest. If you’re checking for something similar, this could be a great place to visit. Check yourself !!!

Electric tricycles

Electric tricycles seem to be a growing trend, and we can now add this VentureOne to that list.
VentureOne takes the Carver concept and commercialises it, bolting in that current environmentalist’s fetish the Hybrid Drive and boasting over 100mpg despite 100+mph speeds and 0-60 in 6 seconds or less.

New line of vacuum cleaners
Hi all !! The LG Kompressor exclusive system works in the deposit of dust, making blocks of dirt. That increases the capacity of dirt that can be stored, without increasing the external size of the vacuum cleaner, in fact it can keep up to four times the quantity of dust before you need to empty it again. As a complement to this system, the new models also have a washable air filter that retains most of the dirt particles, which is very important if someone in your house suffer from allergies. This new line of vacuum cleaners will be composed of three models, with a maximum power of 2.000 W, one of the most powerful cleaners in market, without losing the suction capacity. Great idea!

Promote yourself
On November of last year I launched the Pro Investor Blog with propose to have a personal financial blog to share trade ideas with everyone about stocks trading on Wall Street, specifically about NASDAQ stocks. Since that, I try to catch more and more visitors for this space but as you know it’s not an easy work. This kind of content has a specific type of visitor as a target, mainly will be investors that could be the visitors of my space. Due to this fact, and trying to increase more traffic to this cyber space, I started to change more the content of posts, and recently introduced some content related with technology. So, like you see catching visitors it’s a hard work, but we can be compensated in the future. I spent time this week reading some blogs that I haven't been through in a while and came across something interesting that SponsoredReviews explained on this blog 27+1 Tips for Building and Maintaining a Blog Audience . The content of this blog it is really important for people like me that want to build or even maintain our blog audience. The articles are very interesting to read, they teach us some tips on how to build a good foundation that will help us to increase our traffic. For me, one of the most interesting tips on this content is related with the promotion: Promote yourself using Sponsored Reviews “One of the smartest things you can do to build your audience is to promote yourself on other similar, but not competing, blogs. Pay another blogger a few bucks to write about you. “. Sincerely, I already thought on this, but for me it’s a little soon to do it, I will wait some more months to put this work, but if you think that your customization of your site or blog is terminated, I think it’s time to promote. Ok, that’s enough for now!!! Take a look at this article and enjoy your weekend!!!

A car with eyes
This car has laser sensors that act as "eyes" linked to an intelligent computer brain controlling its movements and has designed to cope with frenetic inner-city driving.
The laser-scanner eyes feed the electronic data of what they "see" around them into an on-board "black-box" computer. This is linked to satellite navigation software and maps out a picture of the car's surroundings in a 200 yard radius - including road conditions, buildings, other vehicles and pedestrians. Scanning the road ahead and behind, it can brake, accelerate, change gear and steer itself around rush hour traffic and obstacles, even reversing to get out of a tight spot.

Fantastic Dubai

There is no stopping Dubai's frantic construction boom, and Atkins, the largest multidisciplinary consultancy in Europe, is not one to miss a part of the action. The company has recently revealed concept designs for the new Trump International Hotel and Tower, which is going to be the centrepiece of the Golden Mile residential and retail Exclusive Boulevard. A single glimpse leaves no doubt that the luxury building with its sharp glazed tips will set the standards for the whole area's development. The project is coordinated by local developers Nakheel and will be located on one of the area's much talked-about man-made islands off the west coast of Dubai, the tree-shaped Palm Jumeirah, which aims to be one of the world's prime resorts.

Planning my vacations
Summer is closer and closer and I’m already started planning my vacations for outside of my country. At this moment I don’t know for which country I will travel, but probably to Greece. As you know, I love to travel. If I could, I would probably travel 8 months out of the year. Maybe when I’m retired I’ll get the chance to do that kind of travelling, but that won’t be for a very long time. I like to travel because I enjoy seeing the wonders of other countries; seeing how the people live and how they adapt to being around ancient and modern times. When I travel, I feel free. I travel to meet new people, and experience new places. I enjoy experiencing the beauty of other places that I am not familiar with, and I enjoy photographing that beauty. As normally happen before decided my destination and the hotel to stay, I always use the internet as a source of my choice, through the web I can find everything I want, at good prices, you know. I want always the best for myself and for my family, so I choose a hotel to stay; it’s more comfortable, secure, luxury, and much more. Yesterday when I was surfing the net, I came across Hotel Reservations . HotelReservations.com offers more than 70,000 properties worldwide from hotels to B&B's to condos to all inclusive resorts. HotelReservations.com offers the information travellers need to book the perfect trip all backed by the HotelReservations.com Price Guarantee. They offers a wide selection of hotels, car rentals , vacation packages and a lot more on their website. You can see that prices are good with very competitive rates and you can also benefit of some great discounts. Why not take a look at it and see the benefits of this service. Enjoy your vacations like I do !!!

Memory Infinite

Memory Infinite has a USB male connector at one end and a female connector at the other, providing an “add up” concept for USB finger discs. By connecting one Memory Infinite with another to add up the storage capacity, the user won't waste the old storage capacity when getting a larger one. The user can choose to merge or separate Memory Infinite, making the usage of USB finger discs more convenient. And when Memory Infinite connects to a computer using its male end, other USB devices still can connect to its female end without having to occupy another USB port on the computer.

The Top Ten electric vehicles

Tesla Roadster - This car has reinvigorated the EV market like no other. While technically no one can buy it this year (all 100 vehicles that will be available later in 2007 have already been spoken for, I can't help but place it at No. 1. With a 0-60 time beneath four seconds and a look that makes you just want to hop in and drive.

UEV Spyder - Universal Electric Vehicle's Spyder made an impressive debut at the Santa Monica Alt Car Expo last December, even though I heard a lot of people ask, "Is this the Tesla?" This EV will be available with different battery configurations at different price levels (some comparable to the Roadster). You don't hear so many people talk the Spyder up, but it seems to share many of the same qualities that make the Roadster so exciting: speed, zero emissions, and sports-car styling.

Phoenix SUT – Yeah, it's expensive ($45,000), but EVs aren't cheap. Heck, retired Toyota RAV4 EVs regularly go for more than $50,000 on eBay, and the batteries in those things are old. Phoenix has been working with Altairnano Technologies on new batteries and is bringing this sports utility truck to market with better range than the RAV4 (but, admittedly, not as much size). Phoenix says they hope to sell 500 SUTs by the end of the year.

Miles ZX40 – While the Spyder and the Roadster don't really ask the driver to make any sacrifices (aside from in the bank account), EVs like those from Miles are not a replacement for a "standard" car, but a solid contender for second vehicle for certain families or individuals, or as a main vehicle for those who don't have to go very far. The Miles ZX40 is like a lot of NEVs – limited to a top speed of 25 mph, a range of around 50 miles per charge and a price of about $12,000-$20,000. (We don't actually know the price of the ZX40, but other NEVs are priced in this range). Another Miles model, the OR70, can go 35 mph.

ZENN – Another player in the NEV field, ZENN's cars are "zero emission, no noise." Get it? ZENN. These NEVs have a lower range than Miles' offerings (only about 35 miles) and are a bit smaller, too. When I drove one in D.C. last year the battery was on its last legs and in need of a charge, but still drove well. The various options can add up to $2,500 to the $12,500 base price. But the most exciting part about ZENN's offerings are yet to come: the EESTOR ultra capacitor is still shrouded in mystery, but the potential is great for this new EV power source (as is the disappointment if the EESTOR doesn't live up to the hype).

GEM e2 – Yes, they look funny. No, they can't go very far or very fast. But GEM electric vehicles have been available for years and the company has a wide range of models available (two through six seats, with or without a flatbed) and prices ($7,000-$12,500). GEMs are used around the country on various campuses, but models like the e2 are obviously targeted to home users.

Smart EV - Available in Switzerland and the UK, the tiny Smart EVs are zero-emission versions of their fossil-fuel drinking cousins. These cars share the easy-parking abilities and unique styling of the standard Smarts, but are only available in the fortwo configuration and only to "to blue chip companies who are happy to meet our requirements to power the cars using only renewable energy sources," says Smart UK. Conversions for your standard Smart are also available.

Mullen L1X-75 – Some of our readers are skeptical of Hybrid Technologies, maker of the Mullen L1X-75, saying their press releases promise more than they can ever deliver. The L1X-75 certainly promises a lot - 100-mile range on a 4-6 hour charge - and this comes at a price ($125,000). Still, the sports car look will attract the eye of those you zip by, and I'd certainly give one a whirl.

G-Wiz EV – available in the UK (and desired by Sir Elton John), the G-Wiz costs a little bit (£8,299 to £6,999) more than some of the short-range EVs in America, but you get something extra in England, too: exemption from certain taxes and London congestion charges and free parking in some areas. There are even free charging stations in some locations.

Kurrent – A tiny and very distinctive-looking NEV, the Kurrent's price ($10,600) includes home delivery because, as American Electric Vehicle president Scott Thornton told AutoblogGreen, if AEV allowed the Kurrent to be sold at just any dealership, the customer might not be able to drive it home thanks to U.S. laws that restrict NEVs to roads with a posted speed limit of 35 mph or below. Lead-acid batteries deliver a range of about 40-mile range.

Asia's first dark Restaurant - Reallly Cool !!!

The first dark restaurant in Asia is officially opened on the 23 December 2006.
You put your hand on the person in front and are led to your table in utter darkness for a most unusual dining experience. Smoking is banned. So are flashlights, matches, cigarette lighters and luminous watches.

Many people in Beijing are keen to try the unusual dining experience on offer at a special new restaurant called "Jingyu Du", which literally translates to "the stomach of a whale". The restaurant only opened in the New Year but it's already known for its unique atmosphere.

The entire interior of the restaurant is black, with not an iota of light allowed to infiltrate. Waiters wearing night glasses lead customers to their tables. Even the floor has been specially built to assist people who are deprived of their sight. Diners eat their whole meal in pitch blackness and have to rely on the waiters' guidance if they need to go to the bathroom.

The world's first completely dark restaurant, the Blind Cow, was opened in Zurich, Switzerland. The owner of the Swiss restaurant, Rev. Jorge Spielmann is blind. He hopes his restaurant will serve both the blind and the sighted by uniting them in a common sensory dining experience.
