The 2018 Eurobike Expo has just wrapped up and there were a handful of super exciting concepts unveiled. One of our favorites was from CeramicSpeed with their introduction of a chainless bike that utilizes a drivechain concept often seen in motorcycles, but to date never integrated into bicycles. The CeramicSpeed 'Drive' system is still in the prototype phase but early models are extremely promising and may give way to a new genre of biking. CeramicSpeed has dubbed their innovation the world's most efficient drivetrain and the judges at the Eurobike convention agreed, naming them winner of this year's Best in Show award. We'll keep a watch on this company and be sure to post any updates to this exciting advancement in riding tech.
MUJI Handy Paper Shredder
We picked one of these manual shredders from MUJI a few weeks ago and everyone in the office is loving it. There is something oddly satisfying from using this to shred mail. Its cathartic - almost therapeutic. One of our interns said her stress levels have gone down and that it was her 'meditation.' Crazy right? Now don't get us wrong - if you have a ton of mail to shred, it will take forever to shred. And thicker card stock won't work. But for that rainy sunday afternoon when you need to shred up a few envelopes or bills, this inexpensive shredder is a delight to pull out. Makes a great gift too.
Nano Cure Tent - Self Healing Tent
Nano technology is clearly one of the most revolutionary and interesting advancements that mankind has been building towards. And now the outdoor world is starting to incorporate nano tech into their products. One of the best implementations that we've seen so far is the Nano Cure Tent from Imperial Motion. Funding on Kickstarter now, this set aims to revolutionize the way you camp and backpack. The tent uses a proprietary material that lets you 'rub out' puncture wounds or holes so you never have to worry about busting your canopy and insulation issues. The tent is large, allowing up to 4 people to comfortably sleep, and includes a waterproof coating, mesh windows and a tarpaulin bottom that eliminates the accumulation of moisture. For those of you who like to venture off the beaten path, the Nano Cure Tent aims to be your one bag solution for all your camping needs.
