Solar-powered Ecocapsule Lets You Live Off-the-grid Anywhere In The World

1


If your fantasy is to live totally off-the-grid anywhere around the world, that dream just got one step closer to reality.


Nice Architects just unveiled the first photos of their incredible egg-shaped Ecocapsule home – and the tiny solar and wind-powered dwelling will be available for sale later this year.


Nice Architects has already completed a prototype, and they plan to ship the first units as soon as Spring 2016 – check out the first photos of this low-energy sanctuary after the break, and picture yourself living the dream.


The Ecocapsule is a micro-shelter that packs an impressive sustainable punch—the ultra-portable house is powered by solar and wind energy, and also includes rainwater collection and filtration.

Over 90 million plastic balls cover the Los Angeles Reservoir in the Sylmar area of Los Angeles Wednesday, August 12, 2015. The city has completed a program of covering open-air reservoirs with floating “shade balls” to protect water quality. Photos by Damian Dovarganes/AP Photo


The 4-inch-diameter plastic balls block sunlight from penetrating the 175-acre surface of the reservoir, preventing chemical reactions that can cause algae blooms and other problems.

Sunblock Life-saving Umbrella

Life-Saved-Vehicle-Umbrella-01


An umbrella could save your life in car accidents, can you imagine that? Yes, it’s true. The Life-saving Umbrella is one product of high technology, which is top quality cloth, new coating technology and sunblock surface. When in emergency, the umbrella becomes a window-broke hammer, seat-belt cutter. With reflective edge, the umbrella could protect people safe in rain or at night in bad vision.


The reflective irradiation lights from cars can produce reflected light through reflective warning strips so that passing vehicles can notice the umbrella user, in which case a lot of unnecessary accidents are avoided. Meanwhile, the umbrella has an automatic switch button to control on/off mode, which is convenient for users to prevent wetting in rainy days.

Solar Panel Charging Table for Electronic Devices

3


It’s a problem that many of us will face on a regular basis, being out in public and having little to no battery left on our devices. Whether you need your phone to get in touch with friends, or are in need of a fully charged laptop or tablet for an important meeting, it is vital that we stay connected. Sol NRG believes they have the best solution for charging portable devices on the run, or when away from a normal power source, its solar panel charging table.


The table comes in two different sizes, either 70x70cm or 60x60cm and uses numerous solar panels so that even if some of the table is covered, the rest will still be producing energy. The table converts the other panels will still harness the sun’s energy and allow it to continue to produce electricity. On a day with plenty of sunshine the table takes three hours to be fully charged. Once the table’s battery is fully charged, it can then in turn charge up to 33 smartphones fully.


One of the best features of the table is that the power it generates is distributed continuously and evenly, so a phone will charge at a normal rate and multiple devices can be charged at one time. Whilst aimed at hoteliers and those in the hospitality industry, it would also work well in a garden or any place without a constant source of power, such as a campsite.


To find out more details about the table, its technical specifications and for more images, follow this link.

Hyundai Vision G Concept

hyundai-vision-g-concept


Hyundai has been trying to enter the luxury market for quite some time, but with not much success. The unveiling of the Hyundai Vision G Concept may just change the future of the Korean company.


The long hood, high belt line and the cabin’s slingshot visage give the Vision G a more bold look, an emphasis for Hyundai’s future lineup of premium vehicles. The Vision G is powered by a 5.0 liter Tau V8 which outputs 420 horsepower with 383 lb-ft of torque. The focus of the Korean company on “luxury” involves both performance and design.
