I'd be on the lookout for cheap electric car kits, under $10k. Probably going to be IKEA-style; flat-packed & shipped, partially DIY assembly.  A limited range will be OK.  Africa, India, Pacific Rim markets.  There are a few starters out there, but none strike me as having the right mix of price/form/function.

I like this idea for mini-tractors, and the company *might* be worth exploring.

I'm not risking more than $100. They needed gas to be $4/gal to drive interest, imo.  In the interim, electric cars are looking viable and even 80+ mpg has lost a lot of its sexiness vs (the long tailpipe of) e-cars.

$37,495 all-electric vehicle with a range of nearly 240 miles on a single battery charge.

http://www.businessinsider.com/2017-chevy-bolt-review-photos-2017-3

Only $20-25k too high, but it's new-ish tech AND the old manufacturers have massive baggage (unions, out-dated/oversized factories, stockholders, pension plans) to support. Here, I'm reminded of print publishers trying to come to grips with internet-age cost & revenue dynamics.

Earbuds that translate in real time. This device is unimportant IMHO, but the software could be acquired and applied on smartphones.

Looks like there's a pretty good pent-up demand for the above big aux screen for phones. I threw $100 at them. From their update email: "With your ongoing support, trust, and loyalty to our campaign we secured $1MM in less than 7 days."

http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/19337046/nfl-drops-95m-stake-fanatics

The NFL just kicked in $95 mil for a stake in Fanatics. MLB, and the NFLPA have also purchased stakes in the company. Very interesting partnerships since we are also licensees of them and run their ecommerce operations. The more they help us and work with us the more their investment is worth. Win-win for everyone. Except everyone else in the licensed sports merchandise business.

Very good move, if they make a success of Football it would kick things up another level, world-wide sport.
