I Have to Have it!

Bioknob - is the coolest thing I have seen in a long time. I'm sick and tired of the whole lock and key nonsense.
The oldest known lock was found by archeologists in the Khorsabad palace ruins near Nineveh. The lock was estimated to be 4,000 years old. It was a forerunner to a pin tumbler type of lock, and a common Egyptian lock for the time. This lock worked using a large wooden bolt to secure a door, which had a slot with several holes in its upper surface. The holes were filled with wooden pegs that prevented the bolt from being opened.

Its 2006 and we need to move on. Pharoh, William Shakespeare, and George Burns had to put a key in the lock, we shouldn't have to anymore. If we can surf the web on a moblie phone, view live movies of Mars, and transplant artifical hearts, it's time to ditch the key. I'm saving my pennies... @ $700 this is a steal!

Flying Cars - We have them, they're here now. The much anticipated flying car. Sure the FAA won't approve it till Dec 2008, and it will cost $995,000, but when Hilary Rodham Rodham wins the election in '08 you can pack up and fly off this rock.

Forecasting Umbrella - This little gaget is the "Sting" of umbrellas, only instead of glowing blue when orcs approach it glows for rain. Oddly enough it's being released this summer, so we probably will not hear much about it this winter.
