A crash course in changing the world.
I read a lot of blogs with some pretty neat ideas concerning alt. energy and energy efficiency so I was just interested in starting a discussion for those really interesting in this field and want to…Continue

Here's a brainstormed listed of definite potential sources of energy:
Tires that generate energy through kinetic energy. Dozens of Watts of energy are generated just from the friction between a car tire and a road per second of contact, that's energy wasted that could be converted for use to power the car alone.…Continue

It's FIFA World Cup 2020 and the US is actually in the semis. And of course we're celebrating.
What's neat are the wallpapers in the bars that absorb body heat and noise and convert it into viable energy. Or my clothes which are made of polarized fabric and flexible solar cell material to constantly power my own electronic equipment. And the cars which run off similar designs compounded with tires that asbsorb, convert, and conserve the energy of friction. The soccer ball and…Continue

Humanity can surprise you. The innovation, the imagination, the creativity, the capability, and the potential- endless, literally. It makes tragedy much more tragic in a way... BUT Jessica Lin and the Harvard students engineering a soccer ball to convert mechanical and kinetic energy into useable fuel! Or PopTech Fellows Lebrone Solutions using dirty microbes as a source for power! Or a material that harnesses radiation such as infrafred light using solar cell fabrics that can act as a power…Continue
