Recharge Your Appliances Through a Solar Powered Plant

A cute plant equipped with solar panels will let you recharge your appliances. During the day, the plant that is composed of module together with a jack will produce electricity through photovoltaic cells. The electricity produced will now be stored in a battery that will in turn recharge your appliances when used during the night. Since each plants module has a jack, everyone has the chance to create an infinite shape. How I wish this product is already available in our place. I will definitely buy one for me to save from my monthly electricity bill, and eventually save money from it.

How I wish this product would be available in our place as soon as possible, so that I will not have to dispose off my garbage to somewhere else.

Armed Chair From Recycled Bath Tub

Another great feature of recycling things has created another useful thing like the armed chair. Though the appearance may not be very pleasant in the eyes, the concept is good enough to appreciate. Using the ideas of people with creative minds, the bath and beyond chair is perfect for those who loves to use things from recycled materials and is not very much keen with design and appearance. I find this chair perfect for outdoor use like the patio and parks. I am sure that this one is weather resistant, meaning safe either during rainy days or during sunny days.

Tickets Made of Grass by Gil Cocker

The O2 ticketing system makes me wonder on how it works. It’s designer Gil Cocker stated that O2 is a two way ticketing system, wherein a couple of week before the main event, privileged ticket buyers are given a bag in the post filled with ingredients to grow grass. In return, it will replace the O2 exerted during the event. This one sounds to be big advantage to our air and nature. However, do not think it can immediately replace the O2 that are exerted during the events, but it is a great idea though. Buy doing this concept; we helped saved the earth while enjoying the things that we loved the most.

Kinderlite Disposable Campfire Frame and Starter Box

The Kinderlite is a disposable campfire created by Philip John Luscombe from the Northumbria University’s School of Design. Created for exhibition at the Museum of Modern Britain’s (MOMB) “2050 retrospective exhibition on the years 2008-2038”, the product is invented for those who know nothing about survival techniques for them to appreciate the qualities of a campfire. I myself did not know the purpose and qualities of having a campfire. This is maybe because I am not into mountain climbing and camping. However seeing this cute and maybe easy to operate campfire, I may now know the essence of having it, and will eventually learn to appreciate it.

Official Text :

The Campfire Frame and Starter Box were part of a product range developed by Kinderlite to satisfy a market desperate to experience the raw thrill of outdoor living. Living lives saturated by technology and longing for something more ‘real’, the young market of 2018 was eager to uptake outdoor pursuits, go on wilderness holidays and reconnect with primordial practices. Kinderlite products have ever since been helping people overcome a lack of confidence and knowledge to answer the ‘call of the wild’.

Water Efficient Washing Up Unit by Toby Fox

Washing up the dishes in an effective way and saving water at the same time is not an easy task for everyone. We can wash the dishes effectively but can’t save on water the right way and vice versa. With the want of saving from water while washing the dishes effectively, designer Toby Fox decided to design the Water Efficient Washing up Unit. This unit is definitely the answer to our problems. The unit’s cleaning handle sucks up the water and heating it at the same time. While cleaning, it cleanses out the detergent in the right amount. At the end of the cleaning process, the cleansing is also complete.

M2E is Designing Motion Powered Charger

M2E is planning to design an electronic device that will replace the current cell phone batteries that we are using, and this is in the form of an external charger that will generate between 300 and 700 percent more energy compared to the present kinetic energy technologies. This design of M2E is composed of a tiny coil/magnet generator. It is now combined with traditional battery storage that will capture kinetic energy. The purpose of this is to covert the daily human motion into electricity sufficient and then to a power electronic devices such as the cell phones, MP3 players, PDA’s, and more.

Building Eco Hotel in a Quarry

Eco luxury hotel in a quarry. Building a hotel in a quarry is such a great idea for an architect. Nobody wants to use areas that have been destroyed already by humans. However, the firm Atkins didn’t think it this way. In fact, they positively designed the proposed Songjiang Hotel that will be placed in a 100-meter-deep quarry. Another great feature with the hotel is that it will use geothermal energy to power up its electrical supply and heating system. Aside the geothermal energy, the quarry itself is also a good source of heat control and shelter from the environment. With its waterfalls and underwater aquarium, there’s no doubt that it can be the next hottest tourist destination in China.
