not a new gadget, but the cheapest price i've seen for the inflatable vest:
I've seen the jackets and they are 'refillable' with CO2 cartridges. I used inflatable life preservers when I used to kayak, much more comfortable for a day of paddling than a vest or regular life jacket.
These Airbag Jeans Could Fashionably Protect MotorcyclistsStrapping on a leather suit can protect you from a nasty case of road rash should you wipe out on a motorcycle, but that’s about it. For more robust protection during a crash, several companies have been developing airbag technology for motorcycles, including a pair of inflatable jeans designed...gizmodo.com
I would were these.
copied this post from another thread since it belongs here as wellI did not want to run the 150' extension cord to my shed so I could run my battery tender this winter. I was always concerned that someone or some animal would unplug it or chew through the cord. So I bit the bullet and bought a solar battery tender. Its low wattage so it wont charge a dead battery but for the last month it has kept my V-Star 650's battery at 100%....And it has the tender connection already attached along with interchangeable cigarette lighter adaptor and alligator clips.
This is what I bought...
Of course your mileage may vary but I'm delighted with my $29.95 purchase. The only possible downside is the solar panel cord is only 6' long so if you need to place the panel further away you will need to but an extension cord.
There's definitely times I could use those, but not for $3500.
Have they not been figured out? I know most cars you can buy aftermarket and program them yourself. I've done Hyundai and GMs.Has anyone figured out how to replace the key fobs with actual keys? That is some technology I am interested in when the time comes for me to buy a new bike. It seems that keyless ignitions are becoming the only way to start bikes these day.
Within the last two days on other forums I have read from two different manufacturers, (HD & Triumph) key fobs have failed due to chips falling off inside of the fob. Both were out of warranty and both cost over $300 to replace.
I should have learned electronics instead of being so dang sexy...
Some people have for sure. That is how 1 -2 times a year, someone breaks into our Hyundai and ransacks it looking for firearms. The police caught one of the teenagers by fingerprint data. He used a homemade device that transmits on all FCC assigned auto frequencies and thousands of unlock codes. Simply walks by the cars and presses a single button and waits to see if any nearby cars unlock.Have they not been figured out? I know most cars you can buy aftermarket and program them yourself.
