RIVER PLANT AQUARIUM by Mathieu Lehanneur
by Bridgette Steffen

Slika

Mathieu Lehanneur is known for his modernist designs that have a ecological purpose. We previously wrote about living air filter that uses plants to naturally purify the air in a neat little capsule. And now, this French designer has another amazing installation that brings the benefits of nature indoors into a self contained living local river ecosystem. This aquarium is not only an interesting home décor piece, but also a fish hatchery and vegetable garden.

Slika

This version of hydroponics uses a refrigerated aquarium as a hatchery for freshwater fish, while vegetables grow on top in glass pods. The vegetables use the water from the fish tank, extract nutrients, filtering and purifying the water for the fish to reuse and develop. For those who don’t have the outdoor space to grow their own food, this may be an effective solution to the local food dilemma.

The aquarium was exhibited at the Artists Space in NY from May to June. You can watch a video of the installation on GearCrave.

M2E Charges Your Cell Phone With Kinetic Energy!
by Adrianne Jeffries

Slika

Earlier this year we highlighted Idaho startup M2E Power’s push to develop motion-powered electronics for the military. Now M2E is emphasizing the commercial applications for their technology, with a specific goal: revolutionizing cell phone batteries. M2E will announce the development of an external charger later this month that will generate between 300 and 700 percent more energy than current kinetic energy technologies, and may eventually replace cell phone batteries altogether.

Slika

M2E’s technology is founded on the Faraday principle, wherein energy is produced from the motion of a magnet passing through a coil. M2E says they have designed a system that will generate between 300 percent and 700 percent more power than kinetic energy technologies currently available.

Their design consists of a tiny coil/magnet generator combined with traditional battery storage that will capture even low frequency kinetic energy, so that most daily human motion will be converted into electricity sufficient to power electronic devices like cell phones, PDAs or MP3 players.

M2E is looking to incorporate their technology into a variety of fields - their web site teases that “The impending impact of MEMS (MicroElectroMechanical Systems) will be both exciting and far ranging” and hints at applications for wind power, automotive power and small generators. M2E also hopes to eventually create motion-powered batteries that rival consumer-sized ones – D, AA and even AAA cells.

The company is planning to get its first motion-powered military product into the field before 2009, but it’ll take two or three years before we can expect our cell phones to charge themselves simply by being transferred from our pockets to our ears.

SOLAR POWERED MOON JAR by Tobias Wong
by Jill Fehrenbacher

Slika

Ever wish you could bottle moonlight to light up your room at night? Well, now you can with the Moon Jar. We’ve written about the Sun Jar on Inhabitat before - the cute and clever solar powered jar lamp which has been around for a couple of years garnering fans and design accolades. If you liked the concept but found the Sun Jar too yellow and sunny for your tastes, now there is a cool blue-hued version of the same design called the ‘Moon Jar’.

We think these would make ideal nightlights for a kid’s room, and have a review over on Inhabitots explaining our thoughts:

Slika
Slika

Designed by Tobias Wong, the Moon Jar employs the same parts and functionality as the Sun Jar: you stash it on a windowsill to collect the sun’s rays during the day, which are then converted into energy to light up your room at night. Whereas the Sun Jar uses a warm amber colored LED, the MoonJar uses a blue LED for a cooler moonlight effect.

NSW Winner: Bligh Voller Nield’s Sustainable Stockland HQ
by Olivia Chen

Slika

Some of the most interesting examples of green innovation are those that transform the environmentally unkind into a beacon of eco-friendly sophistication. Such was the challenge dealt to Bligh Voller Nield in designing the headquarters for Sydney-based Stockland. Their solution recycles an existing structure into a cutting edge workplace so successfully that it received the Milo Dunphy Award for Sustainable Architecture in this year’s NSW awards.

Slika

In creating the plans for the new office, the BVN focused on the health of the environment, but did not neglect the details that would make the office a happy working environment for the company’s employees. For example,
Carbon dioxide emissions are reduced 20 percent by powering the office through co-generation, which uses gas to produce energy via a turbine.
Ventilation and air distribution was increased using a high-efficiency variable air volume system.
Access to natural daylight was optimized by designing the office in such a way that light would be able to filter in.
Use of non-toxic materials in the paints, carpets, sealants and furniture were used to protect both the environment and the employees.
A wireless communication system clears any possible clutter of wires.
The office is outfitted with bicycle storage and small car spaces to encourage employees to integrate an eco-friendly attitude into their lifestyles.

All levels of the office were constructed around a vertical stairway to provide a greater sense of connection as well as ample amount of visibility between each floor. Communal spaces are clustered around the center of each floor and include functional office spaces such as meeting and project rooms in addition to spaces that promote social interaction such as café benches.

It’s inspiring to see an adaptive reuse that considers its employees well being as well as the environment’s. Managing Director Matthew Quinn states: “Recycling an existing building by designing a leading green workplace is arguably the most sustainable development solution and one of the biggest challenges for the industry”.

The Solar Spark Lamp Visualizes Energy Use
by Jorge Chapa

Slika

What if measuring your entire home’s energy consumption was as simple as flicking on a light switch? That’s the idea behind Beverly Ng’s Spark Lamp, a solar-powered device that offers an ingenious approach to household energy monitoring. The sprout-like LED lamp changes color depending on the amount of power that your home has used during the month, providing an easy-to-understand visual cue to conserve more energy.

Slika

As part of Sweden’s efforts to control their energy consumption, the government recently decreed that all future houses must be equipped with a meter that allows households to monitor their energy consumption via the internet. Created in response to this legislation, the Spark Lamp aims to make that information easily accessible in a visual manner.

Conceived by Beverly Ng, the Spark Lamp is incredibly simple. During the day, the lamp is flipped upside down and placed next to the window to recharge. At night, the lamp is turned upright and switched on. At this point it establishes a wifi connection to the Internet and displays your home’s energy consumption by giving a soft green, yellow, or reddish glow for around three seconds. After a moment of eco-illumination, the light then turns white and works just like a regular lamp. Providing access to information is an important step in increasing energy efficiency, and we love Beverly’s elegant solution to the issue.

The WaterMill Produces Fresh Drinking Water out of Thin Air
by Daniel Flahiff

Slika

What if we could, like mythical alchemists, change stone into gold; or like Superman, make coal into diamonds by squeezing it with our bare hands? In possession of such powers might we choose to create something that could make the world a better place? Element Four seems to have answered this not-so-hypothetical question with a resounding “yes” with the WaterMill, a water purification and filtration system that creates “fresh, potable water from an unlimited source: the air.”

Slika

Unlike other water harvesting systems such as fog and dew collectors which rely on a delicate combination of surface area and atmospheric conditions, and similar large-scale systems like WatAir which have more practical concerns such as special permits and community approval, the WaterMill is a small, relatively simple home appliance that draws moisture from the outside air and condenses it into fresh potable water. The WaterMill promises to provide 3.2 gallons of drinking water a day under ideal conditions - enough for a family of six.

While the elegant design of the WaterMill is striking, its real breakthrough seems to be its efficiency. According to Element Four, the WaterMill operates “at a cost of approximately 11 cents per gallon (three cents per liter), the average operating cost of 35 cents a day is a fraction of that of bottled water, which averages around $4.00 per day for the same amount of water.” Not bad!

If water scarcity is the “most underestimated resource issue facing the world today,” as reported by the Earth Policy Institute, then every measure taken to mitigate the crisis is a welcome one. Look for residential units of the WaterMill to be available next year, with more flexible units for everything from crop irrigation to peace keeping and disaster relief available in the near future.

Zbogom kablovima, baterijama i punjačima
Autor: P. Đurović | Foto:Beta | 11.01.2009. - 00:02

Slika

Trpezarijski sto puni energijom svaki električni uređaj postavljen na njega, a samim ulaskom u prostoriju, vaš mobilni telefon u džepu počinje da se puni! Uskoro će ovo postati realnost. Američka kompanija „Pauerbim“ promoviše novi, bežični sistem prenosa energije kroz vazduh, zahvaljujući kom nam u budućnosti više neće biti potrebne baterije, punjači i gomila kablova na podu.

Audio uređaji, rasveta i digitalni ramovi za slike biće prvi proizvodi na kojima će se izvršiti demonstracija nove tehnologije, kao deo programa Međunarodnog sajma elektronike koji se održava od 8. do 11. januara ove godine u Las Vegasu.
Sistem koji promoviše ova kompanija iz Sanivejla u Kaliforniji, električnu struju pretvara u, za oko nevidljiv, laserski zrak koji se kao toplotni talas prostire kroz prostoriju i usmerava do solarne ćelije na električnom uređaju. Zatim se toplota opet pretvara u električnu energiju i omogućava nesmetan rad uređaja.
– Uskoro ćete moći da kupite sto koji će puniti energijom svaki električni uređaj postavljen na njega, kao na primer, vaš laptop. Kada bi svaka soba imala bežični prenos energije, to bi značilo da samim ulaskom u prostoriju, vaš mobilni telefon ili MP3 plejer u džepu počinje da se puni. Punjači vam nikad više neće biti potrebni – kaže Džejms Holand, urednik internet sajta za elektronske novotarije „Elektrikpig”.
Stručnjaci veruju da je ovo samo početak razvoja bežičnog prenosa električne energije i da će bežični elektricitet – ili kako ga neki nazivaju WiTricity – predstavljati pravu revoluciju za sistem napajanja. U svetu bez kablova, korisnici računara će moći uvek da budu na izvoru energije.
– Izbrisaćemo reč napajanje iz rečnika. Ako se vaš mobilni telefon ceo dan puni na vašem stolu, više nećete morati da razmišljate o punjaču – kaže Dejvid Grejem, jedan od osnivača „Pauerbima“.
Laser ove kompanije stvara struju jačine jedan i po vat, koja pokreće solarne ćelije na udaljenosti od deset metara. Ta količina energije dovoljna je za rad malih zvučnika ili LED osvetljenja, ali još uvek nije dovoljna za pokretanje laptopa. Laptopu je neophodna struja od 30 do 50 vati, ali u „Pauerbimu“ veruju da će uskoro moći da pojačaju jačinu struje.
Proizvođači insistiraju na činjenici da laseri ne štete zdravlju korisnika jer samo premeštaju energiju s jednog mesta na drugo. Iako su mnogi ljudi zabrinuti zbog povezanosti elektromagnetnih talasa sa razvojem tumora, naučnici ističu kako će emitovanu energiju primati samo uređaji koji su dizajnirani za rezonantno polje. Ako bi se desilo da neko slučajno prođe kroz laserski zrak, on bi se na milisekundu prekinuo, a zatim bi se ponovo uključio kada je put slobodan.
Tehnologija takođe garantuje energetsku efikasnost jer bi se uređaji punili samo kada je to potrebno.

GREENER GADGETS: Indoor Drying Rack
by Mike Chino

Slika

Amid the flurry of high-tech wonders on display at this year’s Greener Gadgets Design Competition, Rob Podell’s Indoor Drying Rack boldly proved that green gadgets needn’t rely upon circuit boards and batteries to accomplish their function. One of the stars of the show and this year’s third place winner, the clothes drying rack contains no heavy metals, is constructed entirely out of recycled materials and bamboo, and requires no energy to use.

Slika

Given the current state of our over-glutted consumer culture, sometimes the simplest approaches towards design are the most economically and environmentally salient. Addressing the fact that clothes dryers are the second largest energy consuming appliance in the home, Rob’s Indoor Drying Rack offers a decidedly low-tech alternative to the energy-sucking machines.

The Indoor Drying Rack consists of two panels of spines that are constructed entirely out of bamboo laminate and joined by recycled aluminum hardware. It packs flat to ship and is easily installed on a wall, where the shorter panel gives it added support. Its modular design allows individual spines to flip up and down according to user needs, and when not in use the entire rack folds down, saving valuable floor space.

Perhaps it helped that Rob was on hand at the live judging to vouch for his design, but the drying rack stood out for its simple singularity of purpose - a breath of fresh air amid scores of flashy high tech gadgets.

Ikea Unveils Solar Powered Lights for Summer!
by Bridgette Steffen

Slika

Spring is slowly emerging and we are dreaming of outdoor barbecues and parties on the deck. We have a couple of solar powered lanterns along the pathway, but we have been waiting for some lights with a little more pizazz. Last year we were excited to hear that Ikea would be stocking solar products, and now the first products are about to hit the market! These hip little lights are exactly what you need to brighten your outdoor spaces this summer.

Slika

Powered by the sun, Ikea’s lights store the power in replaceable and rechargeable batteries. The lights themselves are all LEDs, which consume 70% less energy and last up to 4 times as long as regular bulbs. The beauty of outdoor solar powered lights is that you don’t have to bury any electric lines or run outlets through the yard. Not only do they reduce your electric demand, but they are just practical and handy. You can take them with you on camping trips, bring them to you neighbor’s party or even use them indoors.

Slika

Unfortunately you can’t buy them online yet, but you can view them here, and hopefully your local Ikea will have them in stock in the next 2 weeks. Prices are totally reasonable as all Ikea products are, so buy yours quickly as they are expected to sell out. There are outdoor posts, strings of paper lanterns, accent lighting, pathway globes, even a solar powered desk lamp. The cute table lanterns aren’t solar powered, but are rechargeable. We like the vintage 1970’s feel of the designs and think these are going to be a big hit.

Soil Powered Lamp: A Fresh Take on “Dirty Energy”
by Alexandra Kain

Slika

Soil naturally contains energy conducive metals like zinc, copper and iron, and microbial fuel cells (sometimes referred to as an earth batteries) are capable of converting electrolytes in soil into usable energy. Dutch designer Marieke Strap’s Soil Lamp uses conductive plates made from copper and zinc buried within the soil to provide constant and (nearly) eternal light for an LED bulb. Maintaining a Soil Lamp is as simple as watering a plant - just feed it a splash of water every now and then to keep the energy flowing.

Slika

The Soil Lamp takes pride in its simplicity and innovation, baring all in a transparent bulbous base. The implications of creating energy from soil are promising - as a free and abundant resource, nearly everyone in the world has access to dirt, save those living in deserts or urban jungles. Because of its naturally occurring conductivity, soil is easily converted into energy that will last far beyond the lifetime of an incandescent bulb, so long and its properly watered.

OVOPUR: Eco-friendly Water Filter
by Moe Beitiks

Slika

Design firm Aquaovo have created a whole new reason for water cooler talk with the OVOPUR, an environmentally-friendly water filter. Shaped like a sleek egg, the OVOPUR uses an Aquacristal filter, made of activated carbon, quartz, copper and zinc. The filter last four months and can clean about 530 gallons of water. The oval dispenser holds 3 gallons at a time and is made of white lead-free glazed porcelain and recyclable and non-toxic parts like silicone and polypropylene. The unit can also be used without the filter as a simple drink dispenser — and is sure to be a conversation starter on any occasion.

The water cooler: straight up conversation piece, right? It might be the place to hang out at the office or the daisy flowered thing at your grandma’s pool parties. The sustaina-liscious kicker of the OVOPUR is its egg-like shape. It’s actually designed to revitalize water using its own natural flow-y curves, à la the theories of Viktor Shauberger. So the liquid in OVOPUR does not stagnate, and it might actually improve the taste of grandma’s iced tea - who knows? At least she won’t have to buy it in a bottle.

Easy DIY Greywater Recycling System: Sloan Aqus
by Trey Farmer

Slika

Who says plumbing is boring? The forward thinking folks at Sloan Valve Company have come up with a compact greywater system for your bathroom that is easy to install and works with the existing fixtures. The Sloan® AQUS® Greywater System filters the water that goes down your sink drain and then uses it to flush your toilet, potentially saving a household up to 5,000 gallons of potable water each year.

Slika

This system helps contribute to LEED accreditation and could posibly lead the way for more wider adoption of extensive greywater recycling systems and public education of just how important water re-use is. Either way, it’s a pretty sweet gem to have hidden under your sink saving you water, money and peace of mind.

Kyocera Unveils Kinetic Flexible OLED Cell Phone
by Ariel Schwartz

Slika

Charting the future of cell phone technology, Kyocera recently unveiled a kinetic energy-powered phone that is capable of folding up like a wallet. Designed by industrial designer Susan McKinney, the EOS phone consists of a soft, semi-rigid polymer skin surrounding a flexible low-energy OLED display. Shape memory allows the phone’s keys to pop up when in use and blend in with the surface during downtime.

Slika

The Kyocera EOS can be used in its folded-up shape for simple phone calls, unfolds to reveal a wide screen, and we were excited to hear that the it derives its energy from human interaction. The more you use the phone, the more kinetic energy is turned into an electric charge through an array of tiny piezoelectric generators. In other words, you’ll never have to worry about leaving the house with a semi-charged cell phone again.

The EOS is still in the early design stage, but Kyocera teams in San Diego and Bangalore hope to integrate concepts from the device into cell phone lineups in the near future. Maybe future versions of the EOS will follow Samsung and LG’s lead and use solar power in addition to kinetic energy.

Test Out a Virtual Home Renovation in Comcast Town & enter to win a room-makeover by Inhabitat!
by Jill Fehrenbacher

Slika

Contemplating remodeling but a little gun-shy about bringing out the big bucks and breaking into the drywall? Cable company Comcast has an interesting new ad campaign (yes featured on Inhabitat) that allows people to design virtual apartments in ‘Comcast Town’ with a fun assortment of chic, green, weird and wacky materials and objects. What does this have to do with cable internet, you may ask? We’re not entirely sure, but what we do know is that designing virtual spaces in Comcast Town is pretty addictive. And even more exciting than the pure fun of poking around in this mini second-life-meets-google-sketchup is the fact that Comcast is holding a design competition to find the best designed room — and the grand prize is REAL PHYSICAL room remodel — at your actual house — worth up to $30,000, and done by yours truly. Interested?

Slika

We’d like to be explicit about the fact that this is part of a Comcast ad campaign. I’m actually pretty excited about it, because I love seeing advertising that is fun, interactive and engaging, and provides something valuable to readers. I couldn’t think of a better campaign to run on Inhabitat than a design contest that allows us to do a green room make-over on the winner, so I’m thrilled to be a part of this. We’re even going to be making a video about the winner and their room-makeover (Extreme Makeover style), so we’re planning to have fun with this. If you are looking to make a change in your room and you are looking for inspiration (or funds), check out this Comcast Town contest.
Here’s what you could win

Grand-Prize:
The winner’s taking home a big-time prize worth up to $30,000, including a room remodel complete with a 40-inch Sony BRAVIA® HDTV, a Sony VAIO® AW laptop and a Philips digital phone. I also promise that if you are the winner, I will provide you eco-design consulting for your space and will greenify your room as much as you will allow me to!

Judging criteria:
originality, use of space, use of color and creative use of materials

Deadline to submit your room to the competition
May 14th 11:59PM PST

So if you are contemplating a renovation, or just looking for a home-makeover, check out this Comcast Town contest > What have you got to lose? (except 20 minutes of fun distraction). You could meet the Inhabitat team and win a complete green room makeover!
