Cook n' Charge!

Cook n’ Charge!

The EcoCharge system is a portable and green solution for giving your devices a quick boost by recycling heat energy. Using thermoelectric generator modules, the unit converts heat generated from cookware, home-heaters or any other source into usable electricity. A flexible magnetic face attaches to any metal surface so the device can be used almost anywhere. Equipped with an OLED display, it also monitors the conduction efficiency of different surfaces so the user knows always knows what kind of charge they’re getting.

Autonomous Water Resource

Autonomous Water Resource

Inspired by the natural occurrence of water condensing onto leaves, the Leaf system uses the same principle to collect dew before filtering and turning it into usable water. A solar powered thermoregulator ensures the surface temp is always below the dewpoint of the surrounding air, triggering drops to form and slide into the carbon/sand filtering layers located in the “stem.” Depending on humidity, the unit can collect up to 15 liters of water every day!

EcoCool

EcoCool

The EcoCool system was designed to filter and reuse grey water to cool interior spaces and hydrate the planter at the bottom of the unit. Before being deposited in the planter, water passes through a series of filters disguised as wall tiles that are filled with a filtering mixture of sand and marble. The solution simultaneously cools the air while bringing awareness to water consumption in a visible and memorable way.

Backyard Wind Energy

Backyard Wind Energy

As my airplane circled over Amsterdam, one of the most notable aspects of the landscape below was the number of modernized windmills dotting the fields. So when I came across the Harmowind project, it got me thinking, why can’t we adapt to this free source of energy and become self-reliant? This particular windmill has been specifically designed for household use and can be installed in the backyard. It has the capacity to generate enough power for a single-family unit to use.

Sea Cleaning Drones

Sea Cleaning Drones

The problem of ocean oil pollution is a serious threat to the natural environment and its wildlife that often proves too much for people to handle alone if not overlooked altogether. The Bio-Cleaner system is an autonomous solution that incorporates a variety of pollution fighting tools like biodegredating bacteria and acoustic alarms that aim to keep marine animals out of harms way while cleaning up the spill.

Perfectly Green Humidification

Perfectly Green Humidification

There’s a brand new way to humidify your room, and it comes in a rather green looking – and acting – product from Wonsang Lee. This design takes first a simple white bucket and a green handle and rim, adds a sort of sprout-like pod which sits at the top of the water inside the bucket. The pod converts the water it sits on into steam as it moves downward through its supply – and it’s simple as that!

Visualize Your Carbon Footprint

Visualize Your Carbon Footprint

When it comes to conserving energy at home, one major setback is the lack of products that make it possible to gauge your consumption as you use energy. Octopus is an electric heating system that utilizes thermo-sensitive film that changes color depending on the intensity of the heat output, giving users a visual reminder of their carbon footprint. The film, located at the front part of the heater, can be visually customized to satisfy a variety of styles and tastes.

All That Noise and More

All That Noise and More

Green Noise Bluetooth Headset is a step in the right direction, although I think it can do with some refinements. For a first draft in the idea of having headsets that soak in the high decibels and convert them to usable energy, it is a fantastic take. Imagine cancelling all the screaming fans in a football stadium and at the same time harnessing their energy! Sounds excellent!

Swing Along Green Power

Swing Along Green Power

Giraffe Street Lamp is a very cute self-sustaining swing design that provides illumination at night. It harnesses kinetic energy each time you swing and as a double back up, utilizes the solar panel hood to soak some more energy goodness. It’s a very clever design that interweaves play and eco sense into the urban environment. Something that our future generation may as well get used to!

Bottle of Smartness

Bottle of Smartness

No matter how cool you think you look with a bottle of Evian or Bling h2o; in the boardroom you are going to be trapped with a lowly PET bottle! Unless you get smart enough to invest in great ideas like the Metamorphose. It is a bottle filter system with a unique skin that scrolls down to cover up a regular looking bottle. In a jiffy you transform an ordinary bottle to something sleek and spectacular, and one with eco-sense. The filter system extends the PET bottle’s regular life up to 10 times and yet manages to make it look sexy. It even fits well in your bag; I want one now!

Getting the Most Out of Compost

Getting the Most Out of Compost

Designer Adam Weaver describes Re:Fuse as an “anaerobic digestion unit” that reclaims gas from decomposing biological debris that would otherwise be lost. The gas collected can then be used for cooking. The user simply places food-waste in the unit and over time Re:Fuse will not only yield gas for cooking but usable fertilizer for growing more food!
