I got an email this morning from Popular Woodworking featuring the image below. Now I’m not sure exactly what this amazing product is, but it sure doesn’t look like something one should partake in before operating power tools! :-)

It’s a drinking filter for dirty water. (just a guess though) ;)

Looks more like a tool to make you high. Time to rethink that ad campaign.

If it is a filter,it is a great tool for hikers,campers,survivalists,etc, I’ll bet it will sell millions.

The Lifestraw is a hollow-membrane filter built into a straw.

I’m with you Randy I’ll wait for the upgraded version:)

Oh, come on. Some of the best creative ideas came after using such “amazing products”. At least so I’ve heard…

Sad to say Randy – it’s more likely to turn wine into water! Not so amazing in that case, is it?
