…You can grow your own Eco One?

Eco Speedster

How do you grow a sports car?

By following the Eco Speedster recipe, you make the tires out of potatoes, the brake pads out of ground cashew shells, and the body from help and rapeseed oil, then power it with a biofuel made from sugar beet and fermented wheat.

This 95% biodegradable wonder must be slow though, right?

Not exactly.

With a top speed of 150 mph, a 0 to 60 of under 4 seconds, and 35 mpg’s, it’s a fast and ecologically friendly way to get around town.

Could this be the future of the grow it yourself auto?

$40,000 says so.

…Hunters can shoot with seasonings?

Flavor Shot

If you hunt for birds, you’re bound to run into the problem of finding shot in them when dinnertime rolls around, and subsequently crunching a chip in your tooth. Season Shot eliminates that problem by replacing the metal shot with tightly packed seasoning, bound by a fully biodegradable food product. When it comes time to cook up your catch, “the seasoning is actually injected into the bird on impact, seasoning the meat from the inside out. When the bird is cooked the seasoning pellets melt into the meat, spreading the flavor to the entire bird”. Besides saving you a dentist bill, these pellets don’t leave behind a harmful waste in the environment like regular shot. Available in Cajun, lemon pepper, garlic, teriyaki and honey mustard flavors, Season Shot is sure to satisfy any hunter’s discerning palette.
