The design is founded on a simple principle that water pressure around the pipe will push through the purifying levels, producing drinkable water with hardly any effort. The Source of Water concept should assist all those in need obtain clean water easily and quickly. The person just has to drop the tubular filtration system in the center of the mix inside the buoyant ring and eliminate whenever complete.
Wide tracking back wheels provide good balance and the digital dashboard will inform you of speed. High power LED tail lights and headlights make the vehicle conspicuous after dark. Everywhere is a high-end foldable electric scooter that gives you a safe ride.
The Windowfarms system downsizes and personalizes veggie growing by placing an indoor farm in the window. The first system was made using recycled plastic water bottles, had an upper and lower reservoir that funneled nutrient-enriched liquid down through martini cups to the plants below, and produced 25 plants. The original plastic-bottle-based, do-it-yourself hydroponics system design has been available for a while now but the developers are getting ready to make a new, improved kit version available. The Windowfarms indoor farm allows the crops to take full advantage of the light available at the window, assisted by personal living space climate control, and regularly feeds the roots with organic liquid soil.
Green Noise tries to harness the power of loud sounds and directly generates electricity through it. Green Noise features powerful microphones that allow it to generate electricity even in the harshest of weather and environments, while still having a easily maintainable design. Aimed to be used on runways and highways, these small gadgets are placed among the road and sense even the smallest of sounds. Green Noise would be the perfect gadget for an electrical car- instead of searching for specific stations, the driver could easily get out and charge anywhere.
The full-size wireless keyboard links up to Logitech’s Unifying receiver over a 2.4GHz connection, features concave key-cap design and benefits from PVC-free construction. The strips of photovoltaic cells provide the peripheral with power – even in ambient light – and at full charge, Logitech says that it will continue to support keying action for up to three months in total darkness. This keyboard will be available this month for a suggested retail of US$59.99.
The myCopter project tries to solve the problems and provide a suitable alternative to the rise in congestion on European roads. This thought gave rise to a project which aims at ending road congestion and making flying as easy as one drives a car.
The key feature of Samsung NC215S is the solar panel located on the lid, which charges a six-cell battery equipped with PowerPlus technology to provide extended running times. There’s a couple of Intel Atom CPUs to choose from, a hybrid sleep mode, and the 10.1-inch 1024 x 600 pixel display is designed for use in direct sunlight. Two hours of sunlight exposure of the unit’s solar panel is said to give up to one hour of working time, with the total battery life estimated to be 14.5 hrs. Considering that NC215S is supposed to work in bright sunlight, the display offers a brightness of 300 cd/m2 and an anti-reflective coating that Samsung claims provides colorful and clear images in any situation – even in direct light.
Francisco Lupin has designed a bathtub named “ECO zonda” that will recycle water. To avoid any kind of wastage, the shower has been wedged with a sensor system. Hot and cold water can be mixed in an ingenious manner with help of a novel digital touch panel. This will clean water for further usage by removing unhealthy particles.
The EcoWash is yet one more thing for you to carry on a camping trip, although that’s probably not a problem. If you’re the kind of person who needs to take a dishwasher into the great outdoors, you’ll more likely be driving an SUV than hiking. The concept design resembles a hosepipe on a reel, and it seems like you’d actually be better off just spraying your dirty plates with that. The EcoWash works thusly: the pampered camper puts his plates and cutlery inside, where they are held in a cage. He then fills the thing with water and turns a handle.
The SOFT Rockers are made from flat MDF panels which have undergone an advanced digital curving process based on the zipshape process that was originally developed in Switzerland by Christoph Schindler. A lightweight Kuka robotic arm was used to remove portions of the structurally unsound wood to form an inside surface resembling a row of teeth. There’s nothing quite like an old rocking chair for finding your center and chilling out. Originally thought to have been developed as garden furniture, the rocker has now come full circle with the development of the SOFT Rocker by Professor Sheila Kennedy and architecture students from MIT.
