Modern LCD Cutting Board





Now that we are in the new millennium, its time to start cooking like it. With that, it's time to recycle the wooden cutting boards and to pull out the LCD cutting board. This concept board, by Nardo Design, has a sleek and smooth design housing a LCD screen inside the board that displays recipes and has a port that allows you to upload more.

The downside to this is that unless you cook with dull knives, the screen will eventually become pretty difficult to read and no matter how good of a chef you are, I think we all know about the little rule about mixing electronics and water.

In cave green house

Live like Batman!


Ever wonder what it'd be like to be Bruce Wayne and to live like one with your bat compadres? The closest you might come is by living in a huge home...in a cave. If you are looking in the Festus, Missouri area then this house should be perfect.

In 2003 a family found this cave ON Ebay and in a matter of 4 years built a cozy home in the cavern hole. The house is a whooping 15,000 sq/ft consisting of three chambers which containing the three bedrooms, a large kitchen, laundry room, party room, an indoor pond, a performance stage which has seen the likes of Tina Turner to Ted Nugent. The house maintains energy efficiency by staying cool naturally because of it's location but also by incorporating geothermal panels to the plan.

Considering that two bedroom condos can sell on average of $250,000, this house is practically a steal costing a cool $300,000!

Dream it up with Skechup

There are many different design programs on the market: AutoCad, Viz, SmartDraw just to name a few.

Fortunately there is Google Sketchup- a free downloadable program that allows you to design furniture or an entire room by creating sketches, 2D and 3D presentations. Not only can you create your own custom pieces, you can also download items from the 3D Warehouse.

SketchUp allows you to create an entire atmosphere and to become part of the SketchUp communities in which you can upload your creations for others to view, see hundreds of other models, and upload and animate your design to put on YouTube.
