Going green isn’t something that happens over night.  You’ve gotta cultivate the ideal and teach those around you to understand the benefits.  And what better time to start the process than when they’re young and impressionable.  The Fastronauts are a set of toys that are powered by kinetic energy.  Play with them, toss ‘em around, do whatever and the power of movement will electrify these little beings causing them to light up, speak and move.  The benefits are beyond ‘green’ as the toys encourage kids to get out of the house and run around.  The Fastronauts are part of the Greener Gadget Design Competition and may one day hit a toy store near you, that is assuming they win.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
