This lion sculpture is made entirely out of old shredded tires by artist Yong Ho Ji and was spotted by Redditor m1keyth while at the Beyond Limits sculpture expo in Chatsworth, UK. All I can say is that lions look awesome made from tires.
Every month, hundreds of thousands of water bottles are added to already overflowing landfills all over the world. While I don’t fault anyone for wanting to have clean water on the go, I do fault those who don’t recycle.
Imagine if we had robots that could not only tear a building down, but also recycle it. Large building projects would go much faster and they would likely be cheaper and safer too. This new concept in robotics may just improve the efficiency of building demolition and recycling.
Even though they’re much more awesome than conventional printers, 3D printers still need “ink”, or what is known as filament. While this can come in many forms – sand, chocolate, living cells – most projects require plastic filament.
General Motors has announced that it has teamed up with a company called ABB to come up with away to use the batteries inside of the Chevrolet Volt extended range electric vehicle after they’re no longer usable in the car.
Benjamin Yates makes coffee tables that house miniature cities made from discarded gadgets and electronic parts. He also fills them with fairy lights and railroad figures of people to bring life to the cities. One man’s trash is a little man’s territory.
If people still can’t get it right after you’ve color coded and labeled your trash cans to death, then what’s a designer supposed to do? Come up with an even better trash can in the form of GO Recycle.
I try to avoid driving on roads which still show evidence of some wild party that probably went on the night before: discarded plastic bags, crushed plastic cups, and shards of glass from broken bottles all around.
The first virtual pet I got wasn’t a Tamagotchi, but a virtual pet dinosaur called Raku Raku Dinokun. Like most kids, I played with it, raised a few dinosaurs that eventually died, and forgot all about it.
Batteries suck. You have to have the right kind for your device, they have to be charged and they are prone to failure way too often. Forget batteries. What we need is a robot that can generate power by eating leaves and dirt, maybe even urine and feces, since humanity has those in spades.
Gadgets like mobile phones and tablets have a quick turnover rate. By that, I mean you can expect a newer version of that cellphone you just bought after a couple of months or so.
So if you’re the type who’s always buying new phones and updating your devices, then it’s time you head to the ecoATM nearest you to start recycling your old gadgets.
It’s true that it will take some time before we rid ourselves of keyboards. I can actually see how the Microsoft Kinect tech might lead to an interface device that’s very futuristic and gesture-based and voice-based, which is pretty cool.
A lot of time and resources have been devoted to finding an alternative means of fuel, since the world is fast running out of fossil fuels. Some say that we’re already past peak oil, while others say that we are quickly approaching such point before the rate of petroleum extraction enters a terminal decline.
Kids learn things quicker when they can see them visually. That’s probably true of most adults too. So if you want to teach kids about recycling, it makes sense that you would want to wow them with a demonstration.
