Here’s an ingenious battery operated ice bucket that is capable of moving up to six bottles of beer to your co-drinkers so you don’t need to fetch another cold one. The RC Remote Control Cooler has a large 5 litre capacity – simply load it up with drinks and ice, and away it goes!
This RC cooler operates on the 2.4GHz frequency, allowing up to 6 units to work in the same time and place. So why not buy a couple more for your mates and you can have a terrific time trying to race each other to see who can get their beer the fastest! Easy to navigate – move the RC Cooler forwards, backwards, left and right with the bottle top shaped controller.
The RC Drinks Cooler features four sure-grip wheels great for both indoors and outdoors, made exclusively with the intention to speed up the delivery of cold lager. Now you can put your feet up as you transmit its beer contents to your fellow boozers by means of a bottle top motivated handheld transmitter.

CONCERNS about the air quality on planes are nothing new, but a recent lawsuit reignites a debate over whether it could potentially be harmful. British Airways (BA) defended its safety protocols after a posthumous court case was filed on behalf of one of two former pilots who claimed that they had been poisoned by toxic cabin fumes.
The BA pilots, Karen Lysakowska and Richard Westgate, believed they had fallen victim to “aerotoxic syndrome” towards the end of their lives. They accused BA of breaching health and safety guidelines for monitoring cabin air quality—a claim that the airline strenuously rejects. Aerotoxic syndrome is the name given to a mixture of physical and neurological symptoms that some experts believe could arise from exposure to toxic fumes on passenger jets. This could happen, it is alleged, if there is a malfunction in the aircraft’s bleed air supply, which compresses air from the engines and uses it to pressurise the cabin. Almost all commercial aircraft use these systems, with the notable exception of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.
The alleged risk comes from “fume events”, whereby faulty seals allow oil particles to enter the bleed pipe. When the air is subsequently compressed and heated, additives present in the fuel allegedly form neurotoxic aerosol particles. The British Civil Aviation Authority says flight crews have to don oxygen masks around five times a week in response to such fume events. So far, efforts to establish whether these incidents pose a threat to aircraft operations or long-term health have proven inconclusive.
Westgate’s lawyers are suing the airline. His doctor told the British Sunday Express: “Some of the symptoms are like the early onset of Parkinson’s Disease or MS. There needs to be an understanding of this, but it’s wilfully not recognised. The airline industry knows how huge the implications would be.”
BA cites independent studies commissioned by Britain’s Department for Transport which found “no evidence that pollutants occur in the cabin air at levels exceeding available health and safety standards”. It added that numerous peer-reviewed research papers found “no increase in overall cancer or mortality rates amongst cabin and flight crew”. The British government concurs, saying “concerns about significant risk to the health of airline passengers and crew are not substantiated”.
There have been other instances of pilots claiming ill effects from fumes. In December 2010, for instance, two Germanwings pilots became disorientated after smelling fumes while on approach to Cologne. Germany’s air accident authority later confirmed that the pilots, who described their own mental state “as surreal, and as within a dream”, had abnormally low blood oxygen levels. Whatever the current thinking, further research into this condition would be welcome.
