KUSA - This edition of Gadgets includes the next evolution in the scooter. It's called the Sbyke.

Sbyke

The Sbyke is part bike, part skateboard. A 20 inch BMX wheel rolls over cracks in the sidewalk and other obstacles. It connects to a wide maple deck for side-by-side foot placement. There's a hand brake for security and safety; rear-steering makes turning smooth.

It's made of lightweight, aircraft grade aluminum. Learn more at www.sbyke.com

Cubodira

This is a plastic cutting board that transforms into a dish rack when you open it up. The fitted bottom lets you hang it over a sink edge to drain water from cups, plates and silverware.
The silverware holder slides in and out, kind of like a trombone. Learn more at www.jonjas.com

iPhone Controlled Paper Airplane 

A former pilot has come up with a way to attach a lightweight airplane motor to a paper airplane that is then controlled with an iPhone. He says each plane has a range of 180 feet and can fly for 10 minutes. He's in the midst of a kickstarter campaign to raise 50 thousand dollars so he can start production.

That fabric has now been incorporated into a part case/part wallet with pockets for your cards and cash. Learn more at www.griffintechnology.com
