30-08-2010 Edible Crayons

Ah kids these days. They will flinch and scream at the + '<\/script>' sight of healthy food but give them some plastic or crayons and they’ll attempt to eat it somehow - which is why Luxirare might be on to something with these gorgeous edible crayons. They’re basically health bars disguised as crayons and are made up of various fruits, veggies, nuts and chocolate covered sesame seeds. They also have a melted marshmallow core and come in a variety of colours and glass bottles. The mould is created as it hangs under flowing water. The finished product represents the bottles which are often discarded carelessly into rivers and oceans.

23-08-2010 No Play, No Electricity

Did you ever think football might help change lives? Four Harvard engineering students (Jessica Lin, Jessica Matthews, Julia Silverman, and Hemali Thakkar) have come up with an energy-harvesting soccer ball that generates renewable energy when kicked around. Dubbed sOccket, the ball uses inductive coil technology to capture and store energy for later use. It will herald a new age and may be the solution for more than one billion people living in third world countries. It’s inexpensive, green orientated and targets young people, particularly in Africa where the sport is gaining popularity.

We’re about to let you in on a little secret. Are you ready for it? Headphones don’t need to be boring!

09-08-2010 Muesli Lovers Unite!

Nothing beats good muesli for breakfast. Of course, there’s no tried and

tested formula for what makes good muesli - instead it all comes down to personal preference. This is why we’re going crazy for the new trend that allows you to customise your own muesli. This concept started out in the US but has since spread its wings to the UK and a small Melbourne company (aptly named) MuesliMixer run by two German muesli connoisseurs. Sydney muesli lovers need not fret as Moose Cafe in Redfern promises to launch a similar concept in the not too distant future. Phew.
