America's First Hemp Home Actually Pulls CO2 From The Air

The ravages of climate change are already being seen in extreme weather, people displaced, and average global temperatures creeping up and up every year. Fortunately, hemp has been making a serious comeback in the United States. 5 states have legalized hemp-based building materials and people are taking advantage.

One of the first homes to be built out of hempcrete, a concrete-like material made primarily of hemp, is the 3,400 square foot Push Housebuilt in Asheville, North Carolina.

Hempcrete is an excellent insulator with an insulating quality of r-2.5 per square inch. It's also able to capture airborne pollutants over time, absorbing carbon from the atmosphere when it's grown and after it's been placed.

The home was outfitted with 30 salvaged window frames fitted with insulating glass that allow daylight in without too much heat. The home cost $133 per square foot to build.

If you have trouble waking up on time, you might need this high voltage ejector bed

This new Ejector bed doesn't have a snooze alarm. If you have plans to oversleep it will launch you straight out of bed. All while flashing lights and sounding off horns and bells.

Invented by Colin Furze, the crazy scientist who also created a set of retractable working Wolverine claws, has now come up with another invention.

When it's time for you to wake up, this bed goes into overdrive. It throws you out of bed and makes a crazy amount of noise.

As is tradition with Furze's other inventions, the majority of it was assembled by him, in his garage. An classic air-compressor powers the home-made device that throws you out of bed.

If you feel like that still won't wake you up, try setting it to MAX power mode!

You can even leave your clothes at the end of your bed for a quicker start to your morning as well!

You can watch the full video demonstration of the ejector bed in the video below:

And in this video you can watch Colin build the entire contraption!
