The DeLorean Returns

DeLorean.jpg

Since I won’t cop to watching the annoyingness that is any Back to the Future movie, I have to admit to what is perhaps a greater evil… which is having spent a significant portion of my free time last week watching most of the just-released DVD set of season two of Dynasty. Either way, I’d be guilty of something described by using the phrases “cheesy” and “80s” in the same sentence.

What does scream “80s”, but maybe not so much “cheesy” is the car featured in both Back to the Future and in Dynasty’s season two, the DeLorean, complete with gull-wing doors and brushed stainless steel body.

And I’m expounding on this why? Because the DeLorean is back! Actually, in the mind of some enthusiasts, they have never gone away. But, now there really is a second coming. DeLorean Motor Car (DMC) is gearing up for a new production run of the unique automobile with initial availability expected in Q1 of 2008. DMC’s website shows immediate availability for rebuilt DeLoreans on a made-to-order basis. But 2008 looks like it will usher in a whole new era, including updated interiors and better engines. Estimated price? $57,500. Mad scientist and geeky kid (Back to the Future) or evil, scheming, man-whore psychiatrist with a hidden agenda (Dynasty) not included.

Do You Know Where Your Children Are? - GPS Uniforms

A popular school uniform company in the UK is considering adding satellite tracking devices to its clothing so parents will know where their children are. As a parent, I applaud the idea, but realistically, what teenager is going to wear GPS clothing, never mind the fact that most kids don't want to wear uniforms to begin with.

Trutex reports that 59 per cent of the parents they interviewed would buy the uniforms, but there's no word on pricing or a tentative release date.

Now if they would just develop a small GPS transmitter we could slip into our children's backpack, then we'd be in business.

Knowhere clock

KnowWhereClock.jpg

I'm not very good at keeping world timezones straight and I'm always triple-checking the World Time Server to make sure it's not too late to call London or too early to call New York. Sometimes I wish I could have several clocks mounted on the wall.

The Knowhere Clock takes care of all that with one simple clock-face and multiple hands. I can imagine the clock-face would take some getting used to, seeing as it has 24 hours mapped out clockwise (with midnight marked at the usual "12" position and noon at the usual "6" position). But that also makes it really easy to figure out if the timezone you're thinking of is "ahead" or "behind" you in time.

Weather forcasting umbrella, plan for puddles

umbrella-smart.jpg

After a week or two of sporadic rain and sudden downpours in New York, I went in search of a more decent umbrella. As fate would have it, I stumbled upon the smartest umbrella on the market, the Weather Forecasting Umbrella. Seriously. It's a smart umbrella that provides visual weather-warning cues and also features a dual-canopy design to help it be gust-resistant.

What I love is that the base of the umbrella illuminates to alert the user to approaching inclement weather. The handle has a built-in radio receiver that allows it to receive weather data for 150 U.S. locations from Accuweather.com. Efficient and effective, the information interface operates on a proprietary wireless network, keeping it safely protected from interference from other wireless devices.
