The quest for alternate, sustainable and abundant energy sources is a never ending one. A lot of homes are already being powered by alternate sources of energy. While some of these sources are really ingenious, some tend to be a bit weird, even morbid at times. Here are 5 such ideas that may be weird, but can effectively power your home. Continue reading Ways out of the conventional for getting power
The German lab Fraunhofer IMS has added another major invention of self-contained solar powered wireless chip-scale IC, to the list of sustainable inventions around the world. This solar powered wireless chip has the ability to warn you when the windows are left open. Continue reading Solar powered wireless censor chip-scale IC
LG has made a respectable name for the self by fulfilling the promise it made in the recent past to emerge as a greener company. Sky charger’s launch is an invention that justifies the promise so made. LG’s Sky Charger is a gigantic mobile phone charger. It has the ability to charge 144 cell phones in an hour’s time. This huge charger runs on solar and wind energies. Continue reading It is all eco friendly with LG Sky Charger
Keeping your iPhone charged is no more a problem. The invention of recycled cardboard mini batteries by Tsung Chih-Hsien has made it easier for each one of us. This concept recently won the Red Dot Design Award, for being the most viable batteries that are eco friendly. These batteries are little cardboard capsules that have the potential to reenergize your dying phone. All you need to do is make a decision about how much battery time you need to buy. These mini chargers are available for 2, 4, and 6 hours backup. Once you use this backup you can recycle them by plugging them in. These batteries are therefore named Mini Power.

Sustainability and holistic development are the concepts that are readily being adopted by the organizations worldwide, because all in today’s time realize its importance. Right from sustainable living to sustainable inventions, stress is on making lives pro earth and eco friendly in all regards. Portland’s new invention of electricity generating water pipe, is one such measure that propagates the idea of the greener approaches. Continue reading Portland is now generating electricity from the city’s water pipes
Like minerals, petroleum, coal, and metals, water is also a limited natural resource. The overused and essential natural resource has to be protected and saved from wastage. For this purpose, researchers and scientists are focusing on water conservation and trying hard to come up with viable water collectors. In fact, some brilliant water collectors have been designed around the world, which can change the present scenario and motivate the masses to participate in water conservation. In the following, some of the best designs of water collectors have been listed. Continue reading Innovative water collection systems that might help with water harvesting
Various technological advancements are being made for making green goods, ranging from hybrid cars to solar appliances, across the world. Here are some green inventions that may appear a little strange but actually are smarter in their performance. Continue reading Unusual Innovations Advocating Sustainable Living
Australia has always been a major player in the eco-conscious arena. Australia is one of the places most affected by the greenhouse gasses that are slowly destroying the ozone layer over the continent. But it is usually other countries get all the credit when it comes to the best and brightest eco-friendly products. Here is a list to show you that Australia can more than hold its ground when it comes to inventions.
The search for eco-friendly energy sources have made scientists and researchers to harness energy from smaller living things which started with corn, then algae and now bacteria. By knowing, how to generate electricity from the M13 bacteriophage, basically a virus that infects bacteria, engineers have opened the doors to many futuristic inventions. Maybe the virus produces only a small amount of energy, but can be expanded and one day with that energy you might able to charge your phone while you walk or can power a vacuum cleaner. The technological advancement has led us to the path of ultimate bacterial power which can be used at many places. Let’s check out some of the amazing bacteria driving instruments or advanced gadgets helping us building a clean environment.
A team of engineering and technology students from ASU’s Polytechnic campus was in news earlier for it was seeking to develop a dog waste digester based on the anaerobic digestion. Now as they have created it successfully, these digesters will generate energy for the lamps of Cosmo Dog Park in Gilbert. The digester will use the byproduct of anaerobic digestion process, methane, to generate the electricity, which is a highly productive way to fix the problem of waste heaps gifted by nearly 200 dogs visiting the park every day.
