A green-energy pod that gives you total independance, anywhere you go.
Next week, at Vienna’s Pioneers Festival, attendees will be the first to lay their eyes on the new, stylish “smart home” that allows you to live completely off the grid. It’s called the “Ecocapsule,” and it’s a wind and solar-powered 14 x 7 x 7-foot pod that gives you total independence. The Ecocapsule hitches to the back of your car and, if it’s electric, will keep it charged with its 9700 Watt-hour battery...
It's a balloon that lifts a wind turbine. That's the easiest way to describe the technology being developed by Altaeros Energies, led by Ben Glass, inventor and CEO of the young company. Glass has reimagined the possibilities of balloon and airship technology to lift a wind turbine.
Researchers at the University of Granada have designed a new imaging system capable of obtaining up to twelve times more colour information than the human eye and conventional cameras, which implies a total of 36 colour channels. This important scientific development will facilitate the easy capture ...
(Phys.org) —Scientists at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) have been working on a device that may one day explore the underside of ice on Europa, Jupiter's moon. NASA completed an early prototype of the rover it hopes will give us more information about Europa, with its abundant water and energy ...
The average New Yorker generates about three pounds of trash every day, and a huge amount of that is food waste--which could be composted, if only we had the space. Enter "Green Loop," a proposal to build massive composting islands off the coastline of NYC.
Researchers in Singapore have developed fibre-based 'optofluidic' sensors for measuring the properties of tiny amounts of fluid. The innovation increases the sensitivity of measurements and makes it less expensive for researchers and clinicians to study the properties of fluids.
Architect Giancarlo Zema and EcoFloLife developed WaterNest 100, an ecological floating habitat.
The 1000-square-foot floating pod-shaped home measures 12 meters in diameter and 4 meters tall. Its curved body is constructed from recycled glued laminated timber and a recycled aluminum hull. The rounded wooden roof is topped by a 60-square-meter photovoltaic array capable of generating 4 kWp. Four skylights flank both sides of the photovoltaic array. Large windows and balconies wrap around the unit to allow users to enjoy views of the water.
The backers of the Dutch Windwheel leave few superlatives behind. The most innovative 'windmill' in the world. A showcase for clean technology. Accelerator for renewable energy. A future icon for The Netherlands and future landmark in Europe's largest port city, Rotterdam. A presence in the architectural ...
In early January 2015, a team of MBARI engineers, led by Andy Hamilton, set out to sea to recover an experimental buoy that creates electrical energy from ocean waves. This power buoy had been deployed six miles southwest of Moss Landing Harbor for 131 days, while the engineers tested the system's ability ...
BMT Isis and MSubs Ltd. are collaborating together to develop a fully instrumented Maritime Sea Range to test unmanned craft. A Memorandum of Understanding between the companies has been put in place while funding and permissions are secured.
(Phys.org) —The news was not good. An underwater drone armed with the best technology on the planet had descended repeatedly to the bottom of the Indian Ocean, trying to find Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. Time after time, it turned up nothing.
Hay un nuevo modo de transporte sostenible en la ciudad de Valdivia, Chile. A través de una iniciativa público-privada se está desarrollado un transporte fluvial que muestra una excelente alternativa de movilidad sustentable y contribuye a la recuperación de los principales patrimonios naturales, los Ríos Calle-Calle y Valdivia, como ejes integradores de la ciudad. Los ríos, que en los orígenes de las ciudades se constituyeron en los motores dinamizadores de su desarrollo (fuentes de agua y alimento, vías de comunicación), posteriormente se convirtieron en su patio de atrás (depósitos de basura y efluentes, fuentes de enfermedades, mal olor, etc.), o en el mejor de los casos, en simples espectadores de la vida urbana. Hemos visto en este blog una serie de artículos sobre la recuperación de los ríos urbanos y su devolución a los ciudadanos como un espacio de recreación e integración. Esta nueva (y antigua) visión del río como elemento estructurador de la ciudad incluye también la
