The Seemingly Simple GO Home is a LEED Platinum House That Packs a Green Energy Punch Photo credit: Trent Bell The bright red GO Home in Belfast, Maine was recently selected as the LEED for Homes Project of the Year for 2011. Completed by GO Logic, the seemingly simple house packs an impressive renewable energy punch and is a LEED Platinum and Passive House certified residence. Because it is a passive house, the home’s owners will see a 90% reduction in their heating bill, resulting in a cool $300 dollars per year for space heating, while enjoying all the comforts of the super insulated building shell during the winter months. With a roof clad in solar panels, The GO Home is also net zero, creating all the energy on site that it needs to provide heat, hot water and electricity for the home owners who will not see an energy bill for the next 25 years. + GO Logic Homes

Bulletproof & Fireproof House Made From Used Plastic Bottles This 2 bedroom house built from recycled plastic bottles is bulletproof and fireproof and can withstand earthquakes. Oh, and it also reportedly holds a comfy year-round temperature of 64 degrees F. The bottles were filled with sand and are held together by mud and cement to form a solid wall that supposedly is stronger than cinder clocks. A man builds a wall with plastic bottles in the village of Sabon Yelwa. Nineteen-year old mason, Yahaya Musa, checks a wall of made of sand-filled plastic bottles in the village of Sabon Yelwa. “…the nearly-complete home is bullet and fireproof, earthquake resistant, and maintains a comfortable interior temperature of 64 degrees fahrenheit year round! The United States uses 129.6 Million plastic bottles per day! The article states it took about 14,000 bottles to build this home.

Metaio announces AR processing unit for phones (—Metaio this week announced its AREngine, an augmented reality chip that closes in on the future of smartphones as AR devices for daily use. The hardware chipset being introduced is a jump up for Metaio which has in the past focused on AR software. The AREngine is being promoted as a move to make "all-day AR possible" for mobile device users, a feature that will be easily appreciated by tourists, not to mention developers eager to gain from a riper ecosystem. The company announced it has struck a deal with Geneva-based ST-Ericsson, which supplies wireless platforms and semiconductors to device makers. What is referred to as Metaio's "proprietary hardware acceleration technology" will go into ST-Ericsson smartphone chipsets. According to ST-Ericsson, the hardware acceleration coming out of the Metaio pact will enable larger screen sizes, better resolution and better tracking accuracy yet "without the power-drain penalty associated with competing solutions."

The Love Frequency – How 528 Hz Is The Frequency The Resonates At The Heart Of Creation According to Dr. Leonard Horowitz, 528 Hertz is a frequency that is central to the “musical mathematical matrix of creation.” More than any sound previously discovered, the “LOVE frequency” resonates at the heart of everything. The Love frequency is the “Miracle” note of the original Solfeggio musical scale. Math scientist Victor Showell describes 528 as fundamental to the ancient Pi, Phi, and the Golden Mean evident throughout natural design. 528 resolves to a 6, the icon for physical manifestation. Definition of the Love Frequency 528 is known as the ‘Miracle’ tone which brings remarkable and extraordinary changes. 1. an extraordinary occurrence that surpasses all known human powers or natural forces and is ascribed to a divine or supernatural cause, esp. to God.2. a superb or surpassing example of something; wonder, marvel [1125-75]; ME <L Miraculum=Mira(Ri) to wonder at. fr(French): sighting, aiming to hold against the light. The 528Hz tone alone is associated with ‘DNA Repair‘

Dunedin Eco Village To Be The First LEED Certified Net Zero Energy Townhome Development In US An innovative housing development is set to get underway in Dunedin, Florida that will see the creation of the first affordable LEED Certified Net Zero Energy townhome development in the US. The Eco-Village will consist of 25 townhomes, all of which are designed and engineered to maximize energy efficiency. Developer Planet Green Group aims to make eco-friendly as well as affordable. The aim of the project is to provide affordable homes for everyone, but especially ‘Hometown Heroes’ such as police officers, firefighters, nurses, teachers, veterans and other professionals. Each LEED-certified, Net Zero Energy home will be priced as low as $600 per month, making them ultra-affordable. The homes themselves have been designed to combine building science and high-performance products with the ability for homeowners to monitor energy consumption. “Dunedin really prides itself on being a kind of environmental leader,” Mayor Dave Eggers told the Tampa Bay Times. + Planet Green Energy

Pallet House Build In the summer of 2011, volunteers from all over the country came together to build a house of pallets for a family on the Pine Ridge Reservation. The powerful experiences of living and working on the reservation were transformational for every participant of the build. Here in The U.S.A. there are so many places with codes and restrictions. If you work with the natives, there are terrific opportunities to build no code no restriction housing. There are many indigenous peoples who are far from commercial infrastructure making access to what most would consider "normal" stores or supplies quite difficult. We have seen many pallet houses which were just pallets, and not complete. The land is cleared and trench is dug for moisture / freeze barrier earth bag foundation

Graphene Aerogel Is The World's New Lightest Material The world has a new lightest solid material. Graphene aerogel weighs just 0.16 milligrams per cubic centimetre, making it just twice as dense as hydrogen gas. Created by researchers at Zhejiang university in Hangzhou, China, a large block of the material can be balanced on top of a flower without coming close to crushing the petals. It is made of freeze-dried carbon and graphene oxide, based on Nobel prize-winning research by professors at Manchester University, who first came up with graphene when playing with Scotch tape. Professors Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov found that by pulling at graphite with sticky tape they could remove ever-thinner layers of material and transfer them to silicon. Pure graphene itself is a two-dimensional crystal of carbon in a hexagonal pattern. Recently a graphene antenna was proposed which is capable of terabit-per-second internet downloads. Among its possible uses graphene aerogel can apparently mop up 900 times its own weight in oil.
