Peugeot’s HYmotion 3 is a three-wheeled concept vehicle that makes urban mobility possible by bridging the gap between an electric scooter and a car. This three-wheeled vehicle, wherein two of the wheels are place in front is equipped with electric motor and a diesel engine powers the one wheel on the back. The HYmotion 3 hybrid car can be driven around the city in an electric mode, and has a slightly leaned and small frame and with a maximum speed of 70mph, and is covered with glass on top. I see it useful, sleek, safe and perfect for today’s busy roads.
I never knew that shopping carts could also be a useful chair as what the Junior Year student did in his final project. The chair was made with no welding work done. All he had done is cut some parts of it and bent those areas that needed to bend until he came up with this creative and eco-friendly chair. I hope that now that we already have the idea of the shopping cart turns into a useful chair, no shopping carts will be thrown away anymore. Maybe some painting job can be done to those carts who already have some rusts or those who are slightly worn out already.

Refrain from using your old black lacquer of the 80s, and switch to the current eco-friendly one now. Yes! You heard it right; an eco-friendly lacquer is now available to give your furniture an attractive polishing without bringing in any harm. It has been tested and used already to various products like the Bamboo Salad Suite Deluxe from VivaTerra, the Cain Collection bench from Branch Home, which is obviously looks simple. However, you can add some beauty into it by applying some smooth sheen of clear or colored lacquer. The Lacquered Rattan storage box by some Vietnamese artisans from Ten Thousand Villages brings out the beauty of their product by using the eco-friendly lacquer too. Other tested products are the Log Bowls and the colorful Curvy Servers.
Producing water using the steps of the human visitors is truly a good idea. This idea came from Nam, which led them into creating the Human Pump that measures 12-meter wide in the form of a boardwalk, which is designed to be placed in areas with heavy foot traffic like those within the school or market route. The details are not yet clear, however, the concept is the pump will collect some kinetic energy from the human step and the stored energy will eventually let the pump produce some water to the surface. This pump will surely help everyone to have a lean and affordable water in the future.

What’s more impressive about this car is that it is fully electric with a top speed of about 160mph and has a range of 200 miles. In addition, the Venturi also has the sleek design that will surely amaze everybody’s eyes.
