We want to revolutionize the way people experience coffee!
In the US alone, there are more than 38 million people that drink coffee “on-the-go.” Those people are spending almost US $2000 and more than 120 hours per year just going out to buy coffee. Also, just last year, almost 15 billion K-cups and more than 50 billion disposable cups ended up in landfills, causing a huge environmental problem. UNA Smart aims to revolutionize the on-the-go market by providing a solution that combines everything that people need to brew, carry and drink their coffee wherever they are, while reducing their ...

Our proposed device aims to prevent gun-related suicide through a low-cost and easy to use layered defense approach. The goal of the DuoBox is to increase time to weapon access and encourage access with two or more people present. Created by a team of veterans and gun owners, the system is designed to provide a cheap, secure, and reliable means of weapon storage that requires no external power and encourages responsible weapon access.
DuoBox is entirely mechanical and uses a minimum number of individual parts to both improve reliability and decrease cost and complexity. It consists of a low-carbon steel ...

Cascade™ is a lightweight, portable, and silent back massaging system made by applying Shape Memory Alloy (SMA) wires to a mesh lumbar support frame or other suitable seating.
SMA wires are special alloys of Nickel and Titanium that contract when heated with electrical current. When applied to a curved seatback or cushion, they produce warm and pleasing compression waves much like a Shiatsu massage. Generally described as gentle and relaxing, the effect is very different from existing devices that grind indiscriminately across your features.
Since the SMA wires are very thin (only as thick as 5 sheets of paper), the entire ...

According to the EPA, every weekend about 54 million Americans mow their lawns, using more than 15,000,000 gallons of gas (that’s more the 800 million annually) and producing tons of air polluting volatile organic compounds and nitrogen oxides. More than 325,000 gallons (that’s 17,000,000 annually) are spilled just filling them up – that’s more than what was spilled by the Exxon Valdez disaster.
Studies have shown that one gas mower running for an hour emits the same amount of pollutants as eight new cars driving 55 miles in an hour.
Replacing 500 gas mowers with electric or non-powered mowers would ...
