I had no idea that an Electric Vehicle Experience Centre was due to open in the UK until I saw a tweet from Go Ultra Low. Their tweet immediately captured my attention, as not only was the EV Experience Centre due to open the very next day, but it would be in Milton Keynes – less than 23 miles from my home in Aylesbury.
A few days ago, my brother sent me a link to a YouTube video that he described as “compelling and thought provoking”. Now, my brother is certainly not the type of person who’s prone to exaggeration or overstatement. So, naturally, his comments piqued my interest, and I quickly found the time to watch the one-hour video.
What did I think?
I was mesmerised. And I think you will be too.
I’ve embedded the video into this post, but let me give you some brief details before you click play…
When North American online retailer Deelat contacted me a few weeks ago about reviewing one of their products – I jumped at the chance.
They asked me if I’d like review one of their solar-powered LED security lights. I immediately said yes, as I’ve always been fascinated by solar-powered lights (but frequently disappointed by their performance.)
Despite my UK location, Deelat arranged for the product to be shipped to me by FedEx. It arrived promptly, just five days after being sent from Canada.
There are more than 17 million shipping containers in the world, of which 6 million of them are currently transporting goods via truck, train and vessel.
These 6 million containers make an incredible 200 million trips each year, helping to transport everything from cars to smartphones.
To give you an idea of their storage capacity, a standard 20-foot shipping container can hold 1 million pencils!
However, shipping containers are not just for transporting goods…

Do you dream of living in an eco-friendly town that puts people and the environment first?
I certainly do.
Fortunately, there is just such a town being built.
Named North West Bicester, this exciting eco-town development is situated in the heart of Southern England, just 15 miles from the world-famous Oxford City.
Let’s take a factual tour of North West Bicester, aided by several ‘artist impressions’ of the finished town.
Smartphones offer so many benefits, that it’s no wonder most of us are in love with our phones. However, as I’m sure you’re aware, smartphones are also notoriously fragile.
A slip of the hand… the phone falls to the floor… you can guess the rest!
Wouldn’t it be great if you could learn how to repair your damaged phone? This would allow you to keep your phone for longer, save you money and also help reduce environmental waste.
Fortunately, thanks to the great work of German tech company iDoc, you can now learn how to repair most of the popular smartphones on the market.
As you may know, college and university campuses are often sprawling, gigantic places.
For example, Berry College in Rome, Georgia, comprises of over 26,000 acres. This includes meadows, woodlands, streams and 47 main buildings.
While most campuses aren’t the size of Berry College, they’re still typically on a BIG scale.
Now, picture yourself as a student at a college or university. Your residence halls may be a long way from the classroom facilities. You may also have heavy books and laptops to carry with you to and from your classes. In these circumstances, walking or cycling is likely to be inconvenient (especially in bad weather).
Fortunately, there is now a cheap, clean and safe way for travelling within campuses.
Let’s jump on board and take a look…
In August 2013, Elon Musk (of Tesla Motors and SpaceX fame) publicly released designs for a revolutionary high-speed transportation system named Hyperloop.
Three years later, it’s clear that his unique concept has captured huge attention from around the world.
So, what is Hyperloop?
