Honda Scoopy
Scoopy is the most modern and popular motorbike at the moment. Despite a high price, they’re proving to be a hit. Honda Scoopy has many advantages - mostly its sleek appearance and comfort. It not only has many styles of colour, but will save you money when it comes to petrol costs. It’s different from other models for its style and power – some even say it’s like a beautiful women. It uses the DEF system, which has very strong power. Love riding through Phnom Penh in fashion? This is the bike for you.

Ripley's Believe it or Not
This is a franchise, founded by Robert Ripley, which looks at bizarre events and items so strange and unusual that readers might question the claims. The Believe It or Not panel proved popular and was later adapted into a wide variety of productions, including radio, television, comic books, a chain of museums and a book series. The Ripley collection includes 20,000 photographs, 30,000 artifacts and more than 100,000 cartoon panels. With 80-plus attractions, the Orlando-based Ripley Entertainment, a division of the Jim Pattison Group, is a global company with an annual attendance of more than 12 million guests.

Pivothead camera glasses
Pivothead’s product line consists of four models: Aurora, Durango, Moab and Recon. Each one sports a distinct exterior appearance. Designed for point of view recording during action sports, the frames are all lightweight and impact-resistant, so the glasses never get in the way – whether you’re biking down a trail, climbing up a cliff or base-jumping off a tree to a swamp filled with crocodiles.

Wi-Fi Plant Sensor
The Wi-Fi Plant Sensor looks like the smashing end of a golf club with a short rod (around 6 inches or so) which you jam into the soil next to your plant.  When set up, it keeps a real-time reading of soil moisture, air temperature and light intensity in the area – the data is then sent to your home network and picked up by Koubachi’s application. The application will take care of the calculations and recommendations, telling you whether the plant requires watering, misting or fertilization. Since the sensor isn’t weather-proof, it can only be used for indoor plants, but it will work on practically any type of soil.

Fader highlight markers
With the Fader, you can mark your books the way you’ve always done, highlighting every passage or fact that you want to pay extra attention to.  The yellow colour markings will stay on for later reference, gradually lightening until it fully disappears after five months. Do note that there’s no way to hasten the ink’s disappearance, so don’t go marking books you borrow from classmates! The actual marker looks like a standard highlighter. It features a plastic body and plastic lid, with a brushed metal clip on the non-writing end.  Of course, this is the early prototype design, so it could look totally different by the time production rolls around. Either way, the disappearing ink is the main selling point.
