The lantern oar consists of a traditional boat oar with electronics in the shaft giving power to three LEDS; the oar is battery powered but very efficient and long lasting. The oar is completely functionable and waterproof in every way; you could submerge this oar underwater and there would be no damage or negative effects. The lantern oar is a very usefull outdoor tool that could be used for fishing, recreation and navigation on the water, the inventor says.
Do you like crazy clothes? Yes? Well, then the Scratch-n-Sniff Scented Denim might be of your interest. The jeans actually smell like raspberry candy when scratched. Naked & Famous Denim, the company which invented them says the effect is created by coating the denim fabric with a special coating that contains mini microcapsules. The coating is applied and then baked into the denim. The tiny capsules have a bit of perfume inside and as you scratch them the scent is released.
Naked & Famous Denim also came up with jeans you can charge up with light (can be natural sunlight or artificial bulb light) and then shut the lights and watch ‘em glow! The jeans will also glow intensely under UV light, so if you wear them in a club with a blacklight, your pants will appear neon green!
According to the company these kind of jeans work because they apply a phosphorescent coating to the fabric in Japan. This coating is baked into the fabric and will absorb light and slowly release that light with an emanating green glow, just like Glow in the Dark stickers. Another fun aspect of the jeans is after you beat them up a bit the wear patterns will cause the coating to fade in certain parts of the jean and will create a unique piece of glowing art.
