Tiny House Boasts Something High and Something Low

A new model of tiny home designed by French maker Optinid uses the company's signature sliding roof, but with a twist: In addition to sporting a roof that opens up to allow inhabitants to enjoy nice weather, the Axelle model boasts underfloor heating that can keep the interior spaces comfortable when the weather turns cold.

The Axelle is currently located in the Rhone-Alpes area of France and is based on a double-axle trailer that's almost 20 feet long. Floor space totals 219 square feet -- almost as much as some so-called micro-apartments, which are little more than cramped hotel rooms -- and the living space is finished in Douglas fir with some polycarbonate accents.

Revos Transforms Bikes into E-Bikes in Under 10 Minutes

Revos is a kit designed to attach to a regular bike in order to provide electric power to a ride the user already possesses and, presumably, likes.

The kit is the brainchild of Revolutionworks, which recently closed a successful Kickstarter campaign that raised £24,184 to bring the project to life. This exceeded the original fundraising goal by nearly 25%.

A "Super Early Bird" package on Kickstarter would have netted a donor the drive unit, battery, pedal assist sensor, battery charger, fitting tool, user manual, and miscellaneous fixings -- all for the sum of £299.

Stash of Turtles Discovered at Manila Airport

Airport security has uncovered bizarre items in recent years, but none quite tip the Oddities Scale as a trove of 1,500 turtles and tortoises discovered in items of luggage at Manila's Ninoy Aquino International Airport in the Philippines.

The four suitcases snagged by authorities contained several protected species of turtle. The animals had been bound with duct tape and squeezed between layers of clothes. Miraculously, they were also still alive at the time of discovery.

The luggage carrying the turtles had apparently been transported to the airport by a Filipino national coming into the country from Hong Kong.

AirPods 2 May Feature Faster Charging, New Finish

If you’ve been eagerly following all of the rumors about the upcoming release of Apple’s AirPods 2, you’ll be excited to hear about the most recent gossip. According to one reporter’s tweet, the new wireless earbuds will charge fully in only 15 minutes.

Final Four Draws Blackout Curtains

Imagine that there's an approaching basketball tournament, the kind that has employees in cubicle farms everywhere drawing out homemade brackets to guess which teams will advance to the last handful or so.

Organizers of such a tournament would do well to line up media coverage, take care of VIPs, arrange itineraries and accommodations for traveling teams, and coordinate ticket sales and distribution.

But -- put up curtains to keep the sunlight from fouling the eyes of the players themselves?

That's apparently on the to-do list for those responsible for staging the upcoming NCAA men's Final Four basketball event at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.
