Morph airline seating.

Traveling by air on a budget isn’t pleasant. Despite huge leaps forward in comfort for the upper classes (and the more recent “premium economy” class), the economy section of a cabin is more often than not cramped, packed, and charmless.  Seymourpowell,  a British design firm, has a seating concept that it believes will change that.

Featured Invention at the Colorado Inventor Showcase

Perhaps you’ve see the blinky lights on bicycles that make them safer and more noticeable at night. We took that to a new level, and way beyond. Imagine as a bicyclist decelerates by putting on the brakes, a bright brake light lights up just like on a car, but it isn’t wired to anything – just snapped to the bicycle seat post.
