Yerka Bike - The Bike you can't steal

Any bike owner will feel insecure when leaving their bike behind at a bike post or tree.  The bike locks aren't very secure and often times bikes are stolen.  Yerka Project is trying to protect bikes from theft.  The Yerka Bike uses it's own frame as a lock to prevent theft.  The only way to steal the bike would to break the bike. 

The Yerka Bike was design for comfort, security, and design.  The Yerka bike maintains the slick design of an urban bike.  The bike looks like any other bike, but it's the safest bicycle you'll find.  With the Yerka Bike you no longer have to carry around a lock and it takes only 20 seconds to connect the bike frame to an object to keep the bike safe.

Avo - The stylish Self-Cleaning Fish Tank


I owned goldfish and eventually gave them away because of the upkeep of changing the filter and water.  Avo is trying to change all that with it's self-cleaning fish tank. 

Avo requires no water changes because of it's micro-ecosystem.  The fish, plants and bacteria work together to maintain the tank as a natural filter.  Avo also uses automated lighting and heated that keeps the plants thriving in the tank.  The heating is taken care too so you can have tropical fish in the tank.  The Avo fish tank is the only fish tank that has very little maintenance.
