Powerblade GTR110

Rollerblade has teamed up, to develop Gravitational Torque (GT) Technology. GT displaces pressure through the middle of the skate, enhances the center of gravity and positions the body for maximum torque resulting in substantial benefits such as improved power transfer, response, speed and efficiency. The frame and wheels are mounted to the central fixation point on the boot, which drives the power directly to the middle of the skate. This is beneficial to the skating experience because gravitational torque optimizes efficiency for all types of strides at top speed, constant speed and cornering or carving . Via - The Awesomer

Classic Match Foosball

Another novel creation from New Potato Technologies is the Classic Match Foosball attachment for the iPad. I've featured other New Potato Technologies products in the past, but this one just might be my favorite. You see I just love playing foosball, and I have my very own foosball table at home, yet do to it's large footprint,  95% of the time my foosball table is hidden under a bunch unfinished projects. Well the classic match foosball solves that problem, by converting an iPad into a foosball table. With a realistic foosball experience, the classic match, incorporates both the classic foosball layout as well as alternate layouts, playfields, and foosmen. Working 2 axis control bars, real scoring markers add excitement for 1-4 players. For more information on the Classic Match Foosball attachment, check out New Potato Technologies. Via - CoolThings

Hastings Community Association

Those of you that come to my blog on a daily basis, may have noticed a decline in content over the past few weeks. The reason for the lack of consistency, is that I've been spending a huge part of my time volunteering, on the Hastings Community Associations board of directors. I've been going to all kinds of meeting, and just haven't had the time needed to make blog posts, that are up to my standards. So be patient, until things settle back down to normal
