Two interesting products

The incredible shrinking laptop continues. Pictured above is the "FlipStart", due out later this year. It weighs just under a pound and is a full PC -- 30 GB hard disk, 256 MB RAM, 1,024 x 600 display, runs Windows XP. Click here for details.

Pictured above is a hydrogen retrofit for gasoline-powered cars. The car can switch back and forth between gasoline and hydrogen operation. The advantage is that you can generate the hydrogen in your garage with an electrolysis unit. Still lots of kinks to work out (the cost of the tanks is sky high right now, filling the tanks is tricky and and hydrogen generation is slow, etc.), but it does show that classic "American Tinkering Know-how" is alive and well.
