The 22 Review is our way of sharing the interesting, exciting and thought-provoking things we come across each week. We pick the best 2 finds and add in a little extra something too. Enjoy!
This hand soap bottle can help reduce the 5 million single-use plastic cleaning bottles we throw out every year. Fill any soap dispenser with warm water, drop in a tablet, let it dissolve, and voila! You have a full bottle of liquid hand soap! The designer of Blueland decided that she wanted to cut back on her own plastic consumption, so she created a zero waste alternative to cleaning products and hand soaps.
When you buy hand soap already, it's usually over 90% water, which you already have at home practically for free. So swapping todissolvable tablets allows you to re-use bottles and cuts down considerably on your carbon footprint - 200 tablets take up the same space as a regular liquid bottle equivalent when shipping and on shelves.
CES 2020 was on the global stage a couple of weeks ago introducing new gadgets and technologies to the world. The one that caught my eye the most is Segway's S-Pod - an egg shaped wheelchair that's self-balancing and has a top speed of 38 km/h. The S-Pod is powered by the same gyroscopic self-balancing technology as a traditional Segway, but instead of leaning in different directions to drive it, the S-Pod is instead controlled by a joystick.
The S-Pod had been designed to let people sit while they cruise through campuses, theme parks, airports, and perhaps one day even cities. If you're a fan of Pixar's WALL-E, then I'm sure you know where this is likely heading!

Our Geco Hub 2.0 prototype has arrived! I've gone ahead and assembled it, done a test run, and made a video showing you the first glimpse of Geco Hub at work.
It's very exciting to see this project come together!
