Childproof Kitchen Cabinets

kitchen cabinet childproof lock Say goodbye to all those unsightly plastic cabinet locks.  Smallbone of Devizes offers wireless receivers hidden inside cabinets. Touch a button on the wireless remote and an inconspicuous steel prong on storage pullouts and drawers is activated or released. The technology allows parents to childproof their kitchens—or, with multiple receivers programmed to lock selectively, to limit entry by employees. These devices can be used outside the kitchen in office cabinetry and luxurious closet cabinetry. Each lock costs about $650.

Ipod Washing Machine

Yes, you read correctly.  The electronics company LG has filed a patent for a washing machine with a built-in dock for either an iPod or a Zune.  Perhaps they figure if cars can have docking stations then why can’t washers?  Let’s hope this one doesn’t go to market.lg-washing-machine-with-mp3-player.jpg
