Bye Bye Spark Plugs


Scientists and researchers from Japan's National Institute of Natural Sciences (NINS) are developing laser igniter's for use in internal combustion engines. In today's vehicles toxic nitrogen oxides are produced because modern day spark plugs are unable to produce the higher energy sparks needed to burn more air and less fuel. Laser igniter's could burn leaner mixtures without burning themselves out, while also creating faster ignitions, for cooler cylinder walls.
More testing is needed before any real world applications begin to materialize, however with this research we may someday say goodbye to the 150+ year old spark plug.

Duct Tape...It's Not Just For MacGyver Anymore

I came across this crazy site the other day called Duct Tape Fashion , which specializes in duct tape. Wait... I don't think I explained myself properly, there's a website dedicated to duct tape, and all things duct tape related. Ok, so maybe I did explain myself properly, WTF...really, duct tape. Well it seems duct tape isn't just for HVAC specialists and MacGyver anymore, it seems people are using duct tape to create all kinda of weird items like wallets, baseball caps, hats, bags, bracelets, purses, visors, and roses. Don't believe me, well check out some of these pics I got... Wallets Baseball Cap Hats Bags Bracelets Purses Visors Roses By: Mass
