Let Them Eat Caviar! Vending Machine Dispenses $500/Oz Caviar And Other Delicacies.

Beverly Hills Caviar vending machine.Beverly Hills Caviar’s vending machine doles out some high-end delicacies (caviar, escargot etc.) in select malls around Los Angeles. It’s probably more Jubbling to sell products via vending machine versus having a dedicated storefront but we just can’t pat BHC on the back for this beauty. That’s why we’re tweaking Jubbling a bit: for genuine Jubbling to exist, a product or idea needs to be attainable for more than just the 1%. [Boing Boing and Gizmag]


Trike-Bike Transportable Bao House: When Tiny Homes Go Bad.

Bao House from dot ArchitectsCould the Bao House from dot Architects be the mobile padded cell for the on-the-go mental health counselor? No, it’s a spray polyurethane foam (SPF) stuffed structure that’s toted around by a tricycle bike and touted as a possible “tiny home.” Bao is the Chinese word for bulge and I can’t help thinking about the disappointed web traffic they would’ve received had dot Architects gone with Bulge House instead.

Move along folks – not much to see here. [Treehugger]


NQJW 10th Edition: hyMod Car Is Gas Or Electric, Turn Off Any TV And Pink Slime Is Jubbling

Stories that are not quite Jub-Worthy There are stories out there that merit the cycle of agonizing over our thoughts and limited writing abilities for four hours, and others that might be interesting but are just as well represented by a link. Here are those links.

  • ‘hyMOD’ lets driver swap out either electric or gas engine
    [youtube width=”250″ height=”188″]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q_4zdZ1mabg[/youtube]

    Romanian company SCI is working on the hyMod car that can switch between being fully electric or a hybrid vehicle by having its engine swapped out at a designated changing station.

    This seems like another green idea where a company is so focused on figuring out how to do something when they really should be wondering why. [SmartPlanet]

  • How to Make an Energy Efficient Remote to Turn Off Any TV

    “If you don’t like the fact that you can’t sit in a restaurant or bar without being surrounded by televisions, the TV-B-Gone will appeal to you. [TV-B-Gone] lets you turn off any TV you see, without having to ask the bartender and look like the guy or gal who’s spoiling everyone’s fun. The ubiquity of large televisions drives up energy consumption, it promotes materialism and pushes back the day when we all might decide that we own enough stuff.”Alex Davies, Treehugger

    TV-B-GoneHoly nuts… if you follow Mr. Davies advice, the TV-B-Gone would be better known as the Deathwish or Total-Dong device. The DIY remote was developed by Jinseok Jeon and will turn off any TV anywhere.

    Stealthily turning off the TV in a bar for green reasons will never work because it’ll just be turned right back on and you might get your ass handed to you to boot. To see what happens to people when they’re caught turning off the TV among friends, not strangers, watch the video below.

  • Pink slime in the context of history
    Pink slime?  No!  It's soft-serve beefgurt.Jamie Oliver wants us to hate it and Maggie Koerth-Baker of BoingBoing wants us to appreciate it. Pink Slime, the concoction made of ammoniated animal parts normally discarded, has been taking a beating in the press. Maybe because it has been added to our ground meat without our knowledge for so long or maybe it’s the parts of the animal (rectal tissue?) used that make us want to gag.

    Either way, Jubbling’s with Maggie Koerth-Baker on this. If you’re going to process an animal, might as well use it all but definitely label it. [BoingBoing]

  • Las Vegas bets on desert water pipeline as Nevada drinks itself dry – Lake Mead is drying up so what’s Las Vegas to do? Plan B is all about piping groundwater and drying out neighboring states. Conservation? That would be plan Z. [Guardian]
