Weltweites Wissenschaftsexperiment beendet - Gartenzwerg „Kern“ bezieht neues Zuhause in der Dauerausstellung des Odysseums
      Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger
Die Erdanziehungskraft ist nicht überall gleich: Dinge wiegen am Südpol nicht genauso viel wie in Köln. Um das zu verdeutlichen, schickte eine Firma zu PR-Zwecken einen Gartenzwerg mit einer Waage auf Reisen. Der Trip endete im Odysseum
      Internet Cologne
Wiege ich in Australien mehr als am Nordpol? Wer das schon immer einmal wissen wollte, sollte "Kern" einmal im Odysseum besuchen. Der kleine Gartenzwerg hat dort nämlich nach einer langen, langen Reise sein neues Zuhause gefunden und berichtet im Kölner Abenteuermuseum von seiner aufregenden Reise.

Improved chair scale KERN MCC
Improved chair scale KERN MCC You know what that is? You charged your chair scale at the wall socket. In a hurry, you roll away the chair scale without first removing the mains adapter and in the worst case, the power cable may break. This does not have to happen! The current model of the chair scale KERN MCC 250K100M is equipped with a technically improved mains adapter. A standard integrated strain relief with disconnecting plug protects the power supply components, z. e.g. if the power cable is accidentally pulled. KERN - always one idea ahead!
