Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

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.

Wallpaper that absorb noise and body heat. If rooms could be outfitted with wall paper engineered to convert audio waves into viable energy or body heat/thermal energy into usable energy, entire cities could be powered and houses made self-sufficient.

A computer mouse that absords body heat and converts friction from rolling on a mouse pad into usable energy to power the mouse, computer, etc..

Trash receptacles that use food waste as a fuellant. Would probably require biotech engineered innovation, a biodigestor type system.

So you've hit on the concept of power harvesting...and boy have you got some good ideas! Nearly all of the energy produced dissipates away after use, and every process that energy goes through propagates the energy loss. By taking some of these ideas (even at the higher level) we start to see that energy creation is not the key to sustainability, energy reuse is and we need radical new ways to do that.

+1 for vision on this my friend.

BTW - I've been looking at a similar idea for tribo-electric energy capture...not dissimilar to your own ideas. http://www.urgentevoke.com/profiles/blogs/shake-that-power-baby

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More

Changes to Charleston

https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid=zQ49AvLkhA2w.kfbaOGer-lQYIf you click my link to my custom map using Google My Maps you will see the addition of a Emergency Shelter to be used in case of a tidal wave or other event from the sea. Included are new emergency routes on what will be an expanded highway to allow traffic to flow in the event of an emergency.See More

India Water home

The secret was living on the water via boats common in many developing countries like Myanmar. This is a real Indian boat home made of wood and this provides a shelter for many peoples around the world.
