When disaster strikes, many of our folks became homeless in anyway, and those homeless victims need some comfortable shelter to live in. This situation made the designer Rafael Smith came into the idea of the Uber Emergency Shelter. Very easy to install, and has a solar panels that can accommodate a small refrigerator and illuminates the whole shelter. The materials for uber emergency shelter can be easily shipped on a compact form, and assembles easily too. The only downside it has is that, it can be a bit shaky to materialize especially in an uneven area. In addition, the price of this shelter can be a big question. Will it be affordable enough as an evacuation area?
From the website :
The stackable feature seems a bit shaky to materialize…especially in disaster-struck areas. However, the designer seems to be pretty sure about stacking them up to house more homeless folks. Also the solar panels on the roofs can be swapped with solar powered outer fabric that serves as exterior wall all round the shelter to can absorb sun’s energy from every angle.
When talking about eco-friendly vehicle, hydrogen powered ones are known already followed by solar powered ones. However, have you ever heard of a wind powered vehicle already? Well, designer Nathan Hintz have a wind powered vehicle concept called WindJet. As the name suggests, the bright yellow super green car concept will use low drag turbines for its batteries to be recharged while in motion. This can be an amazing concept when it comes to fuel efficiency. However, I find its rear appearance pretty disturbing and maybe weird. Overall, the car concept looks great and its fuel efficient. Great enough for a polluted world we have today.

Water sources are diminishing each day and will soon vanish if we will not make a move in saving the environment and eventually our water resources. An entry to the 2010 Skyscraper competition by Evolo called the Water Tower can possibly the answer to our worries. This skyscraper has the ability to pump water from an underground lake. Designed by H3AR, this tower will also houses a treatment plant, hospital, school, and food storage center. Aside from pumping water from a lake, various eco-friendly features of this tower include dry clay brick mixing earth, cement, and water in order to reduce environmental impact.
