      Shape glass into a carefully crafted design, add colored fluid, bits of felt, some plastic, a piece of metal, and a feather. What have you got? Well, you might just have a Drinking Bird! Here's a neat action novelty that uses well established principles of thermodynamics and evaporative cooling to produce repetitive motion. This device is a form of heat engine. If the bird's felt covered head is thoroughly soaked with ordinary water, evaporative cooling begins immediately. With the head being cooler than the base that contains the fluid, a pressure change occurs that moves the fluid UP the bird's neck into his head. His head, now heavy, tilts down into the cup of water pictured. This cycle repeats endlessly as long as there is water in the cup. Fun to watch, this item is a great attention getter that's PURE science!

      Pick it up and hold the base in your hand. Wait a few seconds and watch... the fluid rises from the base, through the neck, and then bubbles and virtually explodes into the top of the unit! You can feel the power! Sometimes referred to as a "Love Meter", this Hand Boiler is not only fun to see and use, it's also a great demonstration of scientific principles. This unit is a form of heat engine that provides an easy lesson that you can see and feel. It's a miniature closed loop distillation process.

      Almost every desk in our office has an elevator on it. When using an external keyboard and mouse it is a must have. It will raise the screen up to eye level. If you use an external monitor with your laptop, an elevator will allow you to but them side by side for easy to use desktop sharing. It also frees up storage space on your desk. We have found that transformers and ninja turtles can coexist peaceably with the elevator.

      This pair of car seat covers is the cure to cold leather seats on a chilly morning. They plug into a car's cigarette lighter and start to heat up before the engine is even warm. A keypad controls both seats and allows for multiple heat settings

      The PIHG3800 is an advanced system for pipe induction heating, specific for pipeline. The induction heating system PIHG3800 is suitable for pipe-end pre-heating by two separated coils and for joint preheating for pipe coating by one bigger coil with lock. This induction system is fed by a new special electric generator that gives high power with reduced dimensions. The generator is driven by a modern Diesel engine with low fuel consumption. The control system is studied to guarantee and easy setting of the induction heating on different pipe diameters and thicknesses.

      In fire engine red! This is a serious multitasker. I can boil pasta, build sauces and soups, cook beans and lentils, or stew baby artichokes in it. Because of the cast iron core, it holds steady, even heat and the porcelain enamel coating makes clean-up ridiculously easy. Plus the brilliant red really brightens up my kitchen.

      We use most of 'our' electricity to heat something -- the air, ourselves, our water. Here's a fairly amazing heat storage tank from a company called First LIght Energy Ltd. that can cut heat-energy usage by 50%-70%. Following their success in Germany, the company is currently launching its heat tanks in the U.K. Basicall a "heat battery"

      A Classic. In today’s busy civilization a majority of cooking is about speed and convenience and it makes it difficult to justify the maintenance of Cast Iron products. Le Creuset is enameling their products and don’t need the same attention but with the same performance of material. Perfect for slow cooking and pretty enough to be served out off. One of few products that can go from cook to serve.

      In another pick I described why the Vornado room fans are great. I recently purchased a Vornado desktop fan (the Zippi) and can now recommend it, too. It doesn't move air across the room, but aim it at yourself from just behind your keyboard and you'll feel a pleasant breeze all day long.

      Heat Factory products are an awesome accessory for all snow sports. There are times when it is just down right nasty cold and a little warmth (apart from your arm pits or crotch) is welcomed. I normally have at least two packs of the hand and sole warmers in my pack if we are going out of bounds or keep a pack of each in my jacket for those days when a thermometer is wearing a bear skin coat. I have used the hand warmers, but the greatest use I have seen for these nifty little packets is for women. Because most women have poorer blood circulation in their legs, their legs get tired faster and often start to cramp. This happens in the bottom of the foot and up along the calf muscles. When the toe warmers or even better the sole warmers are used, it stops the aching and cramping, at least that is what the fine little chickadees that I ride with say.

      I use this program often during my therapy sessions. It is easy to learn and most children are able to grasp the concept of their "engine" being too high, too low, or just right. Can be used at school and at home.

      What a great idea! Recommended by veterinarians, this comfortable and therapeutic bed for cats and small dogs is gently heated to soothe older pets and those with physical conditions such as arthritis. The bed stays at a constant 102 F, which is the temperature suitable for most pets. I think pets should celebrate the holidays with us...
