Flying Finns And Other Fishy Business!

Well what a week it’s been in Formula One. Ferrari Head Jean Todt resigns after their dismal performance in Melbourne and The Red Bull team is under scrutiny for a dangerously designed car. Now the Melbourne race may start in the early morning next year not 5:30PM as stated last week. Ah but that’s why we love F1 so much.

This weekend the action moves to Malaysia and looking at the grid for tomorrows race it would seem Ferrari are back on track and only Brazilian Phillipe Massa has managed to qualify in front of the Flying Finns, Kimi Raikkonen and Heikki Kovalainen. So we have an all Ferrari front row with a McLaren second row. The third row will be Jarno Trulli and Robert Kubica with Nick Heidfeld and Mark Weber starting from the forth row. Fernando Alonso will start from position nine on the grid with Timo Glock filling the top ten. Should be a great scrap tomorrow in the Asian heat but of course rain is never far away at Sepang so anything could happen.

Speaking of things fishy, we here at Gadget Freaks love keeping fish. So we are always on the lookout for fish gadgets and of course our fish tanks looks like something from an Alien movie! However we don’t have anything like this, well not yet anyway.

The Speedfish is a racetrack shaped fish tank so you can watch your fish race each other.Perfect for race fans and Gadget Freaks alike!

Feeding fish can be a tricky business. Feed them too much and you’ll be cleaning your tank more often than you’d like. Feed them too little and they may develop nutritional disorders. This Automatic Fishfeeder takes the guess work out of feeding and also feeds your fish to a pre-programmed schedule. You can vary the feed size, length of feeding program and it even keeps the food dry via an air nozzle which connects to any air pump. Oh and it looks like the Death Star too. How cool!!

Ever wondered how they transport big fish or lots of fish? Yamaha Australia has built 2 humungous fish transporters. They drive them around the country to boat and fishing shows and the like to demonstrate fishing tackle and other angling equipment. Could be cool to turn fishing into a spectator sport!
