Experience Bliss

An Enchanting Experience at the Gym

As Dino visits the gym and notices the members tirelessly working out on the treadmill, cross trainer, and rowing machines, he often wonders if all this energy accumulated could be recycled one way or another. It may not be to power up the building, but at least the water-fountain or the workout machine itself.

Surprisingly, Dino came across an article about the Human-Powered River Gymnasium, which takes this idea of recycling wasted energy to a whole new level.

Quoted from the website – “The River Gym concept is a human-powered floating gym that will provide the user with the one experience that no other gym can provide: floating your workout around Manhattan. Designed by architect Mitchell Joachim and personal trainer Douglas Joachim, this project could bring inspiration to both the morning commute and workout.”

“The River Gyms are, in essence, floating gyms designed to provide health amenities while floating along the Hudson and East rivers. Each gym is programmed with a specific path set on a 15 minute loop moving from one point to the next. This means that each one of these devices can function both as a gym with a view and as a transportation system.”

Check out the image below. It’s quite an interesting concept, but will it actually kick-off?

An Organic Pair of Jeans…

While Dino was searching for some stylish clothing to enhance his wardrobe, he came across a pair of jeans that is not only environmentally friendly, but even offers healing properties.

The ‘Ayurveda Herbal Organic Fabric Jeans’ designed by Make Your Own Jeans, uses an ancient technique of dyeing textiles in medicinal herbs as a means of practicing Ayurvedic medicine.

Ayurveda originated in Kerala(India) some 5000 years ago and has been used to treat various illnesses. Ayur is Sanskrit and roughly translates to “health,” while veda means “wisdom” or "knowledge" this infused into fabrics thus literally means “health fabrics.”

Ayurveda treated fabrics exposes medicinal herbs to the body through the skin, the body’s largest organ. In contact with clothing, the skin absorbs the medicinal qualities of the herbs. Depending on which herbs are used in the dyes, Ayurveda treated fabric may treat a broad range of medical conditions including skin ailments, diabetes, arthritis, and high blood pressure. Each dye may contain up to 50 different herbs.

A few of the benefits that can be noticed are treated skin infections, weight loss, improved diabetes, immune system boost, eczema, energy boost, psoriasis, mood enhancement, hypertension, overall well-being, improved blood pressure, calm feeling, asthma, blood purification and cooling, improved digestion, relief from insomnia, arthritis, rheumatism and general body aches

Dino is going to grab one for himself to complement his cooling t-shirt and blood-pressure monitoring under-pants. Get your own pair now and proudly flaunt your all-natural style!

Are You Still Searching for a Parking Spot?

Not sure about you, but Dino clearly remembers the days when he used to circle the city or large parking lots for a spot close to his destination. At every turn into a new lane, he would pray “Please God, may there be a parking spot here…” Eventually, his good karma would kick-in and he would find a spot.

Thanks to high-tech, finding a parking spot is going to get a lot easier. According to a recent article in the NYTimes, “This fall, San Francisco will test 6,000 of its 24,000 metered parking spaces in the nation’s most ambitious trial of a wireless sensor network that will announce which of the spaces are free at any moment.”

A 4x4” inch sensor, called a “Bump” is glued to the ground and senses once a car has arrived and departed. It then sends a signal to a central database that notifies drivers through the web or a smartphone about empty spots in the area. The “Bump” is battery operated and expected to last from 5 to 10 years without service – assuming that it has been run-over more than a hundred times by the cars trying to park.

The technology behind this innovation is called ‘Smart Dust’. Basically, it’s a tiny, low-powered wireless sensor that detects other sensors within its distribution network, and sends the data back to the centralized server for analysis. Smart Dust can detect motion, humidity, light, CO2 levels, or anything thing else worth sensing. Imagine the possibilities of this – detection of bio-hazards, forest fires, parking spots, or even detecting your vital signs such as your temperature, heart-beat or blood pressure.

Fascinating? Yes, and this is just the beginning!
