Texas-based consumer health advocate Mike Adams of non-profit organization Food Rising has developed a new soil-free, non-electric, home-based food grow system called the Mini-Farm Grow Box. The system doesn't require home gardeners to weed out invaders, there are no pumps, motors or complex parts to service and maintain, and it's reported to require about 1/20th of the water of conventional agriculture and about half the space of soil gardening.  Read More

The EX 366 is the latest expedition vehicle in Bimobil's line

The Sprinter isn't necessarily the Mercedes-Benz platform that immediately comes to mind when we think rugged, AWD expedition vehicle. In fact, Mercedes has said that the Sprinter is the number one base vehicle for luxury camper vans, not exactly a description that makes one think of muddy tracks and rocky hill climbs.

This is one Sprinter that can travel and camp virtually anywhere in the world.  Read More

The Grasp telespresence robot is designed to do just that.  Read More
