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.
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 […]
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.
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.
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 […]
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
