Window Socket – Solar Energy Powered Socket by Kyuho Song & Boa Oh

Window Socket – Solar Energy Powered Socket by Kyuho Song & Boa Oh
The Window Socket offers a neat way to harness solar energy and use it as a plug socket. So far we have seen solutions that act as a solar battery backup, but none as a direct plug-in. Simple in design, the plug just attaches to any window and does its job intuitively. Designers: Kyuho Song & Boa Oh

How I built an electricity producing Solar Panel Several years ago I bought some remote property in Arizona. I am an astronomer and wanted a place to practice my hobby far away from the sky-wrecking light pollution found near cities of any real size. In my attempt to escape city slicker yuppies (you know the kind, the ones that like to blab loudly on their cell phone while they work on some business administration degree in a cyber cafe somewhere in Trendyland.) and their light pollution, I found a great piece of remote property.

Saving Money On The Backyard Chicken Flock Well whomever said keeping your own chickens was going to be cheap and save you money, LIED. But the benefits of keeping chickens FAR outweigh the costs. Don’t get me wrong, a backyard chicken flock is about as good as it gets. You control what goes into your chickens crops, catch some free entertainment, get free poop for your compost, and of course…..delicious, nutrient dense eggs for your table. If you want good organic eggs, you’ve got to feed your chickens organic feed.

The Chromatic Typewriter Washington-based painter Tyree Callahan modified a 1937 Underwood Standard typewriter, replacing the letters and keys with color pads and hued labels to create a functional “painting” device called the Chromatic Typewriter. Callahan submitted the beautiful typewriter as part of the 2012 West Prize competition, an annual art prize that’s determined by popular vote. I don’t know how practical painting an image with a color typewriter is, but if Keira Rathbone can do it… (via dark silence in suburbia)

Shifts Happen: Turbines and Transistors - California Institute of Technology professor John Dabiri is trying to replace the trend towards fewer, larger wind turbines - many now dwarfing the Statue of Liberty - by developing (and organizing) thousands of smaller and far cheaper turbines. This is interesting for two reasons. First, because the idea has technical promise. Larger wind turbines interfere with one another, reducing their efficiency and increasing the wear and tear on their massive blades. Installation and maintenance are costly, they're noisy, and a danger to birds. Dabiri's idea is to replace these individual behemoths with many small vertical-axis wind turbines and, more specifically, to arrange them in such a way that each turbine boosts, rather than interferes with, the power output of those around it.

Welcome to The Sietch - Projects Build Your Own Solar Thermal Panel After our first attempt at a home built proof of concept solar thermal panel, we were a bit disappointed with the results. It took about 4 hours before the thing started work, and was a bit costly (at over 50 dollars) to make. I knew it could be done better and cheaper.

THE COVETED — be stylish Many years ago, my husband and I were at the Vintage Fashion Expo, and while there I thought I would get the “perfect” leopard print coat. You know, that vintage leopard print coat every woman should have in her wardrobe. As I pulled out a leopard print coat which I thought would be the “one” my husband put his hand on my arm, and said, “Nooooooooo. Not that coat.” Not that coat?
