Proxima Two Seater Hybrid Vehicle

Proxima will definitely be the answer for the growing rate of motorcycle incidents. A concept by Alvino Design, the Proxima is a two-seater hybrid vehicle with a car view in front and a motorcycle look at the rear. This unique concept from Alvino gives its rider a chance to enjoy the two-wheel feel of a motorcycle while keeping them safe and comfortable as if they are in a four-wheel vehicle. When driving a Proxima, safety gear like motor helmets will not be needed anymore, because riders in a Proxima are all in-tucked with a fully enclosed cabin as if they are inside a car. Now who would say that a car and a bike could not be enjoyed together in one?

Vertical Farms in New York City

It is now undeniable that our cities have been full of buildings and business infrastructures. However, how about having a farm in the building next door? Architects, designers and agriculturists in New York have collaborated that resulted to an idea of creating sustainable urban farms.

Some leaders are now considering of studying the idea in the future, and soon will come into reality. How I wish that this idea would be built soon, so that vegetables will be available immediately, and of course prices will maybe a bit lower, for travelling will not be needed anymore to bring the vegetable right at your doorsteps.

EcoTreeCity, An Eco Friendly Public Lighting by Doron Hadar

Industrial designer Doron Hadar has created the Eco TreeCity – a public lighting concept. This elegant and ambitious concept uses an integrated freestanding solar element. The lights are randomly put together anywhere to make a unique tree like light. This concept is perfect in any weather, because the interactive system changes its light color according to the weather. It turns into a warm yellowish-white color during cold winter day and into cold bluish-white color during hot summer days. Festive color combinations of lights are also available for the holidays. In addition to that, this concept is maintenance free because the solar panels lasts for about 20-25 years and the battery life is about 5-7 years.

Though he admits that creating a truly green building in a city is to take multiple challenges, from the drainage and irrigation to picking up the right species of trees to be planted and giving them enough sunlight.

Jaambaro, Pedal Car for Ambulance in Rural Areas of Africa

Due to lack of a medical ambulance, and even a motorized vehicle in rural areas of Africa, designer Benoit Angibaud has come to an idea of creating a pedal-car with a stretcher, called The Jaambaaro. This may sound funny to all of us who lives in the city. However, to those people in Africa, this is a big help for them. The Jaambaaro is driven by two person peddling and assisted by electrical power generated from solar energy. Benoit’s pedal-car is made of sustainable materials, which made it earth friendly. What’s not friendly is the design itself. The stretcher is very visible, that made it looks awkward.
