Eggy Furutistic Wheels

Eggy Furutistic Wheels

It’s the egg on wheels. Inspired directly by Peugeot egg-car, GM’s P.U.M.A, Toyota’s I-real, Honda’s U3-X personal vehicle, and of course, my favorite, a penguin! The “Gentoo” concept car takes its form inspiration from the Gentoo penguin, a cute and lovely and environmentally friendly little thing. The idea of this car is just that, to be cute, to be really nice to look at, and to be nice to the environment: the Gentoo uses no fossil fuels at all.

Getting All Square with Coke

Getting All Square with Coke

Alright eco-force! Get ready! It’s time to turn Coca Cola into…whaaa? An Earth-friendly means of distributing 20oz of soda! Coke’s always been a sort of futuristic thinking brand, but this would be a big fat huge giant leap forward in the right direction if I do say so myself. It’s a design for a much more reasonable, smart, ergonomic, and gosh darnit, it just looks lovely. It’s so green, it’s 100% plant based. It’s made out of greens! And it’s much more stackable. And cooler!

Shadow Walls and Sunshine

Shadow Walls and Sunshine

If you’re heavy into design, like you’re an addict, you basically can’t stand to see much in your environment that ISN’T put in place by a human being, you’re basically guaranteed to be at least generally alright at both interior and exterior design, the arranging of elements in your environment. And if you are, and you’re a generally make-your-own-profit sort of person in our modern world, you also like to find ways to conserve energy and make things less expensive for yourself. How about harnessing the sun for all of this?

Massive Agricultural Urbanism

Massive Agricultural Urbanism

One of the biggest challenges in architecture is to create homes that provide more than just shelter. We’re on a slow march of strip mining our resources so the question is, can a home benefit the community and in turn, the environment? Agricultural Urbanism is a proposed residential project that combines thousand year old terrance farming with modern construction.

The Underwear Washing Machine

The Underwear Washing Machine

Reusing water is what’s best for underwear. And if you don’t wear underwear, you probably know someone who does. Seriously basically everyone wears underwear. And most of those people have clean underwear on, or at least underwear that was clean when they put them on. Why? Because they ALL use this machine, every single one of them. It’s called the “Mr. Klein” and it uses reused, reusable water.

One Ring to Green Them All

The basic concept here is lights and filters. As this device sits on your wall, showing you with conveniently lovely lights how dirty your air is, it also does a small degree of filtering that same air to keep your home nice to breath in.

Bike to the Izzy

Bike to the Izzy

Plastic for the shizzy. This bike right here is made of plastic, and it’s made for the city. Immediately I’ve got to tell you my favorite part – the frame is recycleable. That means that when your frame gets a bit banged up but your wheels are still ready to go, you’ve got only to turn it in to the store for a new one! Inexpensive, lovely greenery.

Ambient Lights Get Powered By Nothing

Ambient Lights Get Powered By Nothing

Well almost nothing. Here’s how the deal works: you have a multiple socket strip and probably using up all the sockets to power your gadgets. Its switched on and you keep forgetting to unplug or switch off the unused gadget from the strip and waste energy. With the Saving Energy Multitap, the so called wasted energy is no longer wasted….it gets sucked up to power this set of cool looking touch-sensitive ambient lights on the wall. The job of these ambient lights is to subtly remind you that you need to power off buddy!

Smart Street Lights Know How To Bloom

Smart Street Lights Know How To Bloom

The street lights in my area have a mind of their own and flicker into life on whim. So when I hear of concepts like the Sustainable City Lights, it makes me go green with envy. It’s not asking too much for an intelligent lighting system that harnesses the solar and wind energy for itself. Lampposts intuitive enough to beam up the LEDs only when people are around, else emit a soft glow! Ah, Wishful Thinking

Cooking Up The Eco Greens

Cooking Up The Eco Greens

The Green Cuisine takes inspiration from the Japanese Teppanyaki steakhouse style of cooking and serving. Hosts and guest get comfy in the cooking area where preparation and consumption form the part of the eco-routine. Food is cooked in appliances like the Healthy Steamer, Smart Kettle & Cups, and Cooking Modules, that work together on an interactive Kitchen Table. The integrated performance indicator monitors and displays energy consumption, giving you a fair idea of how Green you have been!

To Grow Herb in da House

To Grow Herb in da House

Far when you got to get up and make the herb that’s mad decent. Or just plain nicely grown, from your home. The designer of this project, Albert Kwon, notes that this project is made in reaction to the multi-national corporations who have centralized food production to make it have perfect profits. Well to that say nay! Get up and get down with your own food! We’ve got the tools, we can build them!

Paul Bunyan Approved!

Paul Bunyan Approved!

Or at least, I’d like to think ol’ Paul would approve. I was just up at his home town in Bemidji this weekend! He was a tall lumberjack man with a taste for good wood. Ya know why he’d approve of this concept called “Timber?” Because it’s made of ten easy-to-assemble pieces that break down for easy transport. You know what that means? Easy bulk! And what’d Paul approve of most? The name, of course: “TIMBER!”

Lillies on Wheels

Lillies on Wheels

Perhaps you’d like to do your part to beat down environment destroying monsters. Maybe you’d like to do your part in being supergreen. In an ideal world, you’d be the one to be the superhero Greenzo. Well here’s your chance in automotives! It’s a car that’s barely a car, if you consider a car to be made of more than 2 main components, running on fossil fuels and lookin all traditional and whatnot.
