Treadmill Bike – Brent Curry crosses a two-wheeled bike with a treadmill to allow the ‘rider’ to produce a double-whammy of a workout.

RoboStool – Steve Norris’s remote-controlled robotic foot stool comes to him wherever he wishes to sit.

Foundry – 14 year olds Oliver Ramin and A.J. Brackovitc make their own foundry for molding aluminum swords.
