Cool Gifts – Nuts

cool gifts - nutscool gifts - nutsnutsI usually don’t feature shopping/gift sites but this one comes highly recommended from an old cyber friend, EvanWeber. So, this Cool Site of the Day (for 12/19) is #nuts, a perfect ‘go to’ site when you need a gift that will please just about anyone.

It all started in 1929 when a guy named Sol walked away from his bank job and got a loan to start his own business, the Newark Nut Company. Third generation family run business. GREAT!

New Technology – Wind Power

cool technology - wind power - altaerosThis Cool Site of the Day (for 12/10) is AltaAeros Energies (#altaeroswind), a kickass awesome way to harness big wind power in a mobile, low power way.

The Altaeros Buoyant Airborne Turbine (BAT; pictured above) leverages aerospace technology to lift a wind turbine into the winds beyond the reach of traditional towers (amazing).

The completely automated, rapidly deployable system can safely and effectively bring wind power to remote sites that use expensive fossil fuel electricity today. Love it!

Today’s Cool Site of the Day is #MyLifeElsewhere. Have you ever wondered how your life would be if you were born in a different country?

This site’s goal is to help answer this question. MyLifeElsewhere.com works by comparing various statistical data points retrieved from the CIA Factbook, among many other public domain data sources. Using this data, they are able to compare countries around the world in a fun and interesting way.

Try it…I was curious to know how the data aligned between the USA and Iraq. I choose the US. And, hey, at least we use a lot less electricity than Botswana:

Cool Travel Planner Site – WishBeen

Today’s Cool Site of the Day is an app called WishBeen. @WishBeen was founded by a group of friends who made travel magazines. The idea of WishBeen was derived from seeing prints held in travelers’ hands as they walked out of airports. The app changes the way travelers share their information and experiences — from print to web.

I immediately saw the value of the app when I searched travel plans for Tuscany Italy and found a couple of interesting, shared (documented) travel experiences. Their slogan: “Practical service for every potential traveler.”
