El auto solar que puede llevar a una familia Los vehículos solares que han conseguido más autonomía, están diseñados normalmente para una sola persona y no son muy cómodos. En cambio el Stella Lux, un coche solar familiar creado por estudiantes holandeses de la Universidad Técnica de Eindhoven, ha sido diseñado para el uso real en nuestra vida diaria. Con cuatro asientos y mucho espacio disponible, el Stella Lux no sólo es eficiente sino que es agradable; se nota que estos estudiantes dejaron sus estudios de lado entre un año y un año y medio para concentrarse en el proyecto. En el techo del coche hay 5.8 metros cuadrados de celdas solares para mover el coche, junto con una batería de 15 kWh. Sus creadores aseguran que tiene una autonomía de 1.000 kilómetros y una velocidad máxima de 125 km/h, aunque todo depende de la meteorología.

The Thai Mobile Advert That Has Everyone Weeping Hyundai 2020 – Vehículo inspirado en la fotosíntesis. Genial! Las plantas para sobrevivir solo requieren de agua y sol, tomando esta realidad biológica como inspiración Hyundai ha develado su visión del auto del futuro con el Hyundai 2020. Un auto concepto con cero emisiones y totalmente independiente de cualquier forma de derivados de petroleo que funcionaría con tecnologia desarrollada por el MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology).

CounterCrop: The Modern Way to Grow Your Own Food by Jack Abbott We like to think that CounterCrop is to other indoor gardening systems, what the apple computer is to the PC -- high quality, intuitive, packaged into a sleek, eye-catching design. CounterCrop’s self-contained growing system delivers the optimum light spectrum used by plants for efficient and sustainable growth. This targeted LED lighting results in faster growth cycles and stronger, healthier plants - and no wasted light! Our LED lights also employ biomimicry, which is a fancy way of saying they imitate the lighting patterns associated with sunrise, sunset and even seasonality. This important features signals the plants to wake up and start growing, or rest – a function that is not included with competing products on the market. Finally, each CounterCrop unit comes equipped with a handy remote control that triggers the unit to deliver water and light at the touch of a button.

+ | Solving for the first/last mile: micro-mobility looks to bridge city transportation gaps Sharing the streets Will Nicholas, executive VP of operations for Bolt Mobility Corporation, views e-scooters as a complement to other modalities of which he says there can’t be enough. Pointing to the behavior of Millennials staying in densely populated urban centers—not just major cities but also midsize and small cities—rather than moving out to suburban neighborhoods as prior generations once did, he says: “They are less interested in owning vehicles, which they know contribute to carbon emissions and global climate change and are a depreciating asset that they aren’t going to use that much because [alternative] options are becoming more prevalent.” He names Lyft and Uber as among them but notes that car- and ride-sharing services can be an expensive means for getting to work. Bolt Mobility designs and manufactures app-accessed e-scooters intended to be a green, inexpensive, reliable, and flexible mode of transit for bridging the first/last-mile gap.
