Two of Japan’s Leading companies the NYK Line (Nippon Yusen Kaisha) and the Nippon Oil Corporation joint forces in designing a ship that will be partially powered by solar energy. These companies said that the solar panels they are about to place in this 60,000 Toyota Motors Corporation car carrier ship is capable of generating 40 kilowatts of electricity. These solar panels are aimed to save up to 6.5 percent of fuel oil, and would help cut off CO2 emission of about one to two percent or about 20 tons per year. The two companies are aiming to commercialize the system fully in the next three to five years.
A new British embassy is planned to be built and finish by 2011. Designed by HOK, the building has an eco-friendly concept since it is designed to collect rainwater and stored for the building’s water use and irrigation. The building’s design seems to be very comfortable for the people. Covered alleys gave every embassy visitors a shade for a comfortable visit. Though the building as a whole may not look artistic ad futuristic, it’s large area can definitely give enough comfort to embassy employees and visitors alike. I am sure this embassy building will let the embassy employees give Indonesian people the best service that they deserve.
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.
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.
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.

In most places, waste disposal is one of the serious problem people are facing. Countries normally do not have enough places to dispose off their garbage. However, this problem can be totally already with this new food waste processing unit called the Drog. This product can convert daily trash into compost, and eventually can be used in growing plants, and what’s good about it is that, the processing only takes 45 minutes. 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.
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.
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.
