New Innovations Abound 


In our last few issues, we've spotlighted some of the nominees for the Edison Best New Product Awards.  Here are a few more "hot" nominees:



SkybuiltCheck out SkyBuilt -- the world's first, rapidly-deployable, open architecture, hydrid renewable energy systems. 


SkyBuilt systems can be set up in as little as 5 minutes to a single day, and can run for years with little to no maintenance.  Applications include telecommunications, military, Homeland Security, disaster relief and more.


Ford MyKey




Ford's new MyKey technology helps parents encourage teenagers to drive safely and more fuel-efficiently.  Parents are able to limit the car's top driving speed and audio volume, as well as to ensure seat belt usage by the driver and passengers.





Disney Store


The innovative, new, highly-interactive store design by The Disney Store delivers "the best 30 minutes of a child's day," incorporating interactive and immersive experiences inspired by favorite Disney characters and stories.





AmtrakAmtrak has introduced The Heartland Flyer Biodiesel Fuel Trial, offering daily intercity passenger rail service between Oklahoma City, OK and Fort Worth, TX.  The trial will evaluate the feasibility and effectiveness of B20, a mix of 20% biofuel and 80% diesel fuel.
