Best Travel Accessories: humangear Travel Cutlery Set

Whether you’re heading out on a day trip or planning a longer outdoor excursion, there are all kinds of accessories that can make your life while traveling easier. For picnics or meals on-the-go, for example, a travel-sized cutlery set (that’s reusable and environmentally friendly to boot) takes much of the hassle out of planning meals during travel days. The Gobites Trio from humangear includes a fork, spoon, serrated knife, and toothpick, all of which neatly nest in a compact carrying case. So whether you throw the case in your everyday lunchbox or bring it with you on an outdoor adventure, you can rest assured knowing that you have everything you need to enjoy a meal at your fingertips (minus the actual food, of course). The set is made from tough nylon, meaning that it doesn’t have harmful chemicals and materials (it’s BPA-, PC-, and Phthalate-free, to be exact). And while the utensils aren’t your typical metal silverware, they’re still strong enough to be used however you normally use cutlery. For example, the brand recommends using the serrated knife to cut a piece of chicken and the fork tines to twirl a bite of spaghetti. There are als...

Automotive diagnostics have come a long way since the “idiot lights” of the 1980s. The current

Automotive diagnostics have come a long way since the “idiot lights” of the 1980s. The current version of the on-board diagnostics (OBD) protocol provides real time data as well as fault diagnostics, thanks to the numerous sensors connected to the data network in the modern vehicle. While the hardware interface is fairly standardized now, manufacturers use one of several different standards to encode the data. [Alex Sidorenko] has built an open source OBD-II Adapter which provides a serial interface using the ELM327 command set and supports all OBD-II standards. The hardware is built around the LPC1517 Cortex-M3 microprocessor and can accept a couple of different versions. Here’s the PDF schematic, and a set of Gerber files (ZIP archive) for the PCB layout, if you’d like to dig in to it’s internals. The MC33660 ISO K Line Serial Link Interface device is used to provide bi-directional half-duplex communication interface with the micro-controller. Also included is the TJF1051, a high-speed CAN transceiver that provides an interface between the micro controller and the physical two-wire CAN lines on the ODB-II connector. The serial output from the adapter board is connected to a co...

Telecom gear maker ITI to invest Rs 150cr to boost solar panel capacity

Public sector electronics and telecom gear maker ITI Limited plans around Rs 150 crore investment to scale up its solar panel manufacturing capacity to 90 MW in the next fiscal, a top company official said. The company, which plans to raise Rs 1,600 crore through a follow-on public offer (FPO), has a solar panel capacity of 18 MW currently. “Given the kind of demand we are witnessing in the solar space, especially in the rooftop segment, from corporates and commercial establisments as well as the state governments, we want to be ready to tap that opportunity,” the company’s Chairman and Managing Director R M Agarwal told PTI. He said the company will be investing Rs 150 crore for scaling up the capacity, which it hopes to get from the budget allocated to the Department of Telecommunications, Ministry of Communications. The company is expecting at least Rs 500 crore from the government in the next fiscal for meeting its various capital expenditure (capex) requirements. When asked if the company would utilise the funds raised through the FPO for the capacity enhancement in case the funds from the government do not come, he said, “The FPO proceeds will have ...

‘Shark Tank’: Entrepreneur screens investors for his flexible screens

On Sunday’s “Shark Tank,” a Pittsburgh native opened himself a window of opportunity, as the ABC show returned after a holiday break with a taste for warmer weather. Joe Altieri is the creator of FlexScreen, a flexible, easy-to-install screen that simply pops into a window frame. Working over 20 years in the industry, Altieri came up with his invention while working in his garage.  “Everybody hates window screens,” he said. “They are next to impossible to install and remove. They block more of your view than you realize.” Shark Kevin O’Leary cared less for Altieri’s background and more for his justification of the whopping $13.3 million valuation of his company. “OK Joe, I totally agree you’re the window guy. I’m sure everybody else up here thinks the same thing. But I’m an investor guy, and you’re asking me for $800,000 for 6%. Obviously we got to get sales. You better have some.” The fact that FlexScreen did $5.1 million last year in sales made O’Leary and the other sharks happy, but their joy quickly turned to horror when they realized Altieri only realized a profit of $40,000. In the sharks’ opinion, Altieri’s revenue system was more than a little convoluted. He licensed fou...
