Maximizing the capability of these supplies is vital. Examine […]

Green solar grill

Derek Ham writes over at Barbeque Lovers about a solar-powered grill project he has been working on that uses latent heat storage to both extend cooking times, create hotter temperatures, and reduce the problem of intermittent sun. Based on technology developed by MIT professor David Wilson, the concept is expected to generate cooking temperatures of 450F, and […]

Play your way to clean electricity

Soccket brings electricity to developing nations. Soccket is a soccer ball that generates and stores energy while in play. This energy can be used as clean electricity, bringing light to many homes. Currently, many developing nations rely on kerosene lamps to supply light in the evening. These lamps are dangerous, they emit toxic fumes and […]

Walk, run or bike to clean power

The nPOWER PEG harvests kinetic energy from motion such as walking, running or biking. It then uses this energy to charge hand-held electronic devices. The project is currently looking for funding on Indiegogo. The goal is to deliver 100 generators to high-risk areas that are off-the-grid, but that use mobile devices. “Over half a billion mobile […]

Rescue with The Ruins Catheter

The Ruins Catheter, designed by Idan Raizberg, is a device made to rescue people from collapsed buildings or debris. The rescue device could be used after earthquake or in response to any collapse. The design is inspired by a medical balloon catheter, used to expand arteries. “At the start of the project, I outlined for […]
