Last year we reported on a motorized and self-inflating stand-up paddleboard by Slovenian company SipaBoards. Since the successful Kickstarter campaign that followed, the firm has snagged a prestigious Red Dot design award and has now returned with an updated model for 2016 that caters to fishermen.
Israeli electrical engineer Avraham Hagay wrote into Gizmag this week to tell us about his invention, a motorized shopping trolley designed to make it easier to push a full load of groceries around the store and back to your car. The system, which carries loads of up to 120 kg (265 lbs), can be retrofitted onto existing carts or integrated into new builds. Hagay's currently in talks with local companies and he hopes to soon find a business partner to help manufacture, market, and sell the technology worldwide.
