Here’s a really cool product for people who like to travel or who simply forget to water their plants: DriWater is a gel made of water and vegetable matter which, when it comes in contact with dry soil, will become water.
To use, simply water your plant well then wrap one of these gel-noodles around the base. DriWater comes in 30 and 90 day varieties as well as other flavors targeted at professionals.
Exhibit A: I’m a geek.
Exhibit B: My wife has great fashion sense.
For Christmas this year (yeah, we celebrated a little early) my lovely wife bought me a very cool SCOTTeVEST (SeV). These stylish jackets would not look out of place on any snowboarder or sullen teenager yet are a wonderful bit of clothing for your favorite geek.
The SeV (taking advantage of the “SUV” craze?) is rife with nooks and crannies for all your favorite gear. Most pockets can be accessed from both inside and outside the clothing. There are also built-in channels to route wires for your own PAN (personal area network).
My Version Three.0 Stealth Fleece has 12 hidden pockets… including a spot for a CamelBak Bladder!
For a list of all the features, check out the glossary of terms.
I was going to sell my wife’s car to buy this… but she won’t let me. What kind of wife won’t let a guy buy a $10,000 record player? Details: ELP Laser Turntable
