Nipple-adapter for ordinary PET bottles

Nipple-adapter for ordinary PET bottles.
One could be inclined to agree with the statement that it is amazing that no-one has thought of this before. Even the inventor himself, Johnny Habeeb, was surprised there was no such product in the market already. It is after all embarrassingly simple. A special adaptor and a nipple makes almost every PET bottle into a baby bottle. Baby gets a drink and parents know the water is fresh. For sale in American 7-Eleven and Circle-K stores for USD 1:95. More on BabySport. Via Strange New Products.

More affordable lighted bike pedal
More affordable lighted bike pedal.
Regular readers may remember our post on the amazing battery-free lighted bike pedal from Pedalite. The Pedalite bike pedals had no other drawbacks than being rather expensive. It was about USD 98:- at the time (now on sale for GBP 39:95 (about USD 78:-) a pair on Pedalite's own web shop. The drop in price is perhaps due to the fact that there is a competitor on the market. A similar LED lighted battery free bike pedal is available from Bikemania and it is a little cheaper at USD 29:99 a piece which makes it USD 60:- for two. Via Book of Joe.

Rubber horse shoe by Lone Pedersen
Rubber horse shoe.
The rubber horse shoes were invented by Lone Pedersen in the small community of Öllöv in the Swedish province of Halland. Lone thought traditional iron horse shoes must be both uncomfortable and dangerous for horses, even though they have been used for hundreds of years. She started experimenting with horse shoes made from old tractor tyres, and in 1993 she got a patent for steel horse shoes with a rubber coating. The Halmstad Rubber Factory bought her invention, developed the shoes further, and are now selling them under the brand Alive Original. The rubber coated shoe is claimed to improve the horses traction, and be very useful in cities and on paved roads. The Thai Army, the Prague Mounted Police and the Russian President are said to be among the customers. Available from, among other places, Lycke Equestrian Center for SEK 59:- (approx. USD 8:79) a piece.

Reload emergency battery for your mobile
Emergency battery for your mobile.
We have previously posted on the Charge2Go, a device that can suck the power out of an ordinary AA battery to inject it into your starving cellphone. We've also posted on the hand cranked chargers from Dino and the one from Freeplay. Not to mention the Cellboost, that looks like a small extra battery. Now here's another take on the emergency power issue. The Reload bag of cellphone juice for emergencies when your phone is dying and you have an important call to make. It comes with adapters for a bunch of models from Nokia, Samsung, Sony Ericson, LG, and Siemens. Available from Infoferenda for SEK 49:- (approx. USD 7:-) and from Elkparts (with a SAAB logo) for GBP 9:99 (approx. USD 20:-) or USD 17:25. That is one expensive SAAB logo...

Check out the new Smart Stuff Store!

Time to think of presents?
Lately we have not updated Smart Stuff as often as we used to, and we hope you'll forgive us. There has been a lot of other stuff these past few weeks. Now that we have entered the Christmas month, we will try to be more frequent; a lot of people are surely out looking for presents for their loved ones. And what would be more fitting than a really smart present this year. Like the serrated super peeler from Messermeister, a super sharp grater from Microplane, the smart pepper mill from Chef'n or one of all the other smart products we have put together in our small shop on Amazon. And if you do actually buy something, we will get a small fee from Amazon. This contribution helps us keep Smart Stuff running, so we thank you in advance for your kind support!
