Laura Sink from The Art Institute of Pittsburg has just created the innovative and conceptual product called the Nature Levo. It is a small, vertical-axis turbine with a primary purpose of catching wind from any direction. This creatively shaped stationary object can be installed to any existing structures like the telephone pole, flag pole, chimney mount, or in your usual backyard. Created for Novomer Plastic, the Natura Levo has a necessary steel bearings, adjustable cylinder mount, and small housings. This product is perfect for today’s generation of learners. It will teach our young learners to be aware of the things that can help us save the earth naturally.

natura levo wind turbine concept

Laura Sink says :

Natura Levo is a small wind, vertical axis wind turbine. It is a 66″ tall turbine that contains two non-traditional blades that can catch wind from any direction. These blades are fastened within a unique steel component which also houses the tapered bearings allowing the blades to spin with little friction. The center axis is a beautifully formed stationary shape that mounts to existing architecture. The intended architecture can be anything ranging from a telephone pole, to an old chimney mount, to a flag pole in a residential back yard. Natura Levo is intended to harness energy from a renewable energy source while co-existing with its natural surroundings. Natura Levo should be so beautiful that it raises awareness of natural energy by admiration of its design.

Natura Levo is made primarily of Novomer plastic, with necessary steel bearings, adjustable cylinder mount, and small housings. The steel components are machined, and with the exception of the housings, these are standard forms. The remaining steel pieces would be machined in 3 separate entities and welded together. The axis is Novomer and injection blow molded; the blades are a bit more involved. They would be formed in 4 pieces and snapped together. The nature of the rotation would strengthen the fastened segments by using the natural force. These 4 pieces would be injection molded.

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.

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’.
