When Roald Dahl wrote Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, he imagined a much-coveted golden ticket that granted access to myriad wonders and unveiled the inner workings of an entire industry. MetaBody created a real-life version of that ticket with the MetaBody Yoga & Fitness Pass, though it applies to fitness instead of candy. The pass grants access not to a single gym but to classes at a variety of local studios, specializing in everything from yoga to boot camp. With the freedom to move from location to location, students can sample different regimens, instructors, and styles of exercise to cobble together a program that fits their needs and goals. MetaBody's nutritionists supplement class packages by coaching clients in healthy eating, recipe cooking, and speed-reading nutrition-fact labels.
With the help of a high-powered, 48-inch fan, Clean Air America, Inc.'s truck-mounted vacuum system extracts dust, dirt, and allergens out of ventilation systems at a rate of 16,000 cubic feet of air per minute. To put that in perspective, traditional portable or truck-mounted vacuums muster between 400 and 4,000 cubic feet per minute on a good day. Before each session, technicians send an infrared camera into the ductwork to map out every inch of dust or reveal enclaves of ninjas hiding there. Then they move in with special brushes and scrubbing tools, leaving homes with cleaner air and fewer odors.
