Energy from paint?

RMIT solar paint

Researchers at RMIT (Australia) have developed a solar paint that can absorb water vapour and split it to generate hydrogen. Hydrogen is a clean source of energy, used in fuel cells and as combustion fuel. Imagine exterior walls of homes and buildings as the source for the energy they use.

Bowling reimagined

Photograph by Robert Goetzfried

Europeans have taken bowling alleys to a new and more artistic, experiential level. The balls certainly strike a more stylish note, but what about the shoes? https://www.bloomberg.com/news/photo-essays/2017-05-18/stunning-modern-palaces-for-an-ancient-sport

Folding bicycle helmet

morpher_helmet

You know that bicycle helmets save lives and prevent brain injuries. Unfortunately, they are inconvenient to carry around with you after rides and are easily stolen if left with your bike. Maybe you’re one of the millions of riders who doesn’t wear a helmet for this reason, even knowing the risks. The Morpher Helmet may be a practical solution. Due to an imaginative concept and design, the helmet folds flat so it can be stored easily in a backpack or briefcase. See https://www.morpherhelmet.com

An artistic unfolding of light

interior_studio_13

Lumio re-imagines lamp light. It engages you by presenting the device somewhat like a magic trick. When closed, Lumio can sit on a shelf inconspicuously and appear to be a book with a wooden or fabric cover. Yet when opened, the rechargeable LED light shines through the “book’s” Tyvek pages with a warm glow. Because it isn’t tethered to an outlet by a cord, Lumio can sit on a table, on a bed and even outside on a patio. A leather strap that’s included with the kit can transform it into a pendant light suspended from the ceiling or even a tree branch in the woods. http://www.hellolumio.com

Free “granny flats” as an experiment to address homelessness

WillametteWeek_AmyChurchwell

What’s an imaginative way to combat homelessness? Offer to build granny flats on citizens’ properties… for free. A local government in the state of Oregon plans to fund construction of up to 300 miniature (200 square foot) homes on residential properties in the next year. The only catch is that property owners must agree to lease the flats to homeless families for five years. Then, property owners can keep the structures at no cost for any personal use. http://www.wweek.com/news/city/2017/03/14/multnomah-county-hopes-to-build-granny-flats-to-house-hundreds-of-homeless-families-in-portland-backyards

Need blood vessels for new hearts? Try spinach

spinachleaf_vascular

A step forward in ways to replace damaged or diseased human organs is by 3-D printing new organs. Successful trials are promising. Yet, a huge challenge is to create a vascular system to provide blood supply to those organ tissues. In the case of heart replacement, spinach might be the answer. The structure of spinach leaves may offer the answer as a viable blood vessel “plumbing” system. Check out the research at http://news.nationalgeographic.com/2017/03/human-heart-spinach-leaf-medicine-science.
