Tiger Beer Air-­Ink Made from Pollution

Tiger Beer Air-­Ink Made from Pollution | Artdictive Habits : Sustainable Lifestyle | Scoop.it

Tiger Beer is sponsoring Air‐Ink, an innovative range of pens, markers and spray cans made from recycled air pollution. Graviky Labs, Bangalore, an off-shoot of MIT Media Lab, Boston, spent three years designing unique devices to capture soot from vehicles’ exhausts. These were fitted to trucks, ferries, chimneys and even cranes around Hong Kong and India. The captured pollutants were then purified and turned into safe, reliable ink for everyday use. Overall, 150 litres of Air­‐Ink has been produced, approximating to 2500 hours worth of typical diesel car emissions.  | read all  & see more photos  at theinspirationroom

.Young Al spent the better part of the next six years in Zarasai, the “Siberia of Lithuania.” There was no running water, a shortage of food (he stole produce) — and no toys..

It was while in Lithuania, though, that Jaffee learned to make do. He would salvage for parts to make tools or a fishing rod. And because his father back in America would send newspaper comic strips to Zarasai, and because Al had a knack for cartooning, he was inspired to draw comics in the ground using a stick.  |  read more

Photographer Files $1 Billion Suit Against Getty for Licensing Her Public Domain Images [UPDATED] | Artdictive Habits : Sustainable Lifestyle | Scoop.it

Now, Highsmith has filed a $1 billion copyright infringement suit against both Alamy and Getty for “gross misuse” of 18,755 of her photographs. | read more...

Now, a fascinating new study from an economist at the University of Southern Denmark appears to show that link.  | read more
