Singapore Airlines launches biofuel flights

IdeaSpies air fuel

Singapore Airlines has launched the world’s first “green package” flights powered in part by sustainable biofuel produced from used cooking oil. The biofuel will be combined with the usual jet fuel in a series of 12 flights over the next three months on the Airbus A350-900, which the airline company hails as its “most fuel-efficient aircraft”. The 12 biofuel flights will be on the airline’s non-stop Singapore-San Francisco route. http://www.news.com.au/travel/travel-advice/flights/cooking-oil-is-being-used-to-fuel-singapore-airline-flights/news-story/881e857395ac2473300ef6f25e85d7bb?

A solar powered boat in the Amazon

IdeaSpies solar powered boat

This new boat will be used by the Achuar people within their territory of Ecuador and Peru which remains roadless and pristine. Walking and canoes that use gasoline are the main means of transportation for the Achuar. But their territory has a vast network of rivers and tributaries, and plenty of sun, meaning that an environmentally-friendly alternative to the gas boats – which do not reflect the Achuar’s commitment to protect their rainforest home – is now possible. https://www.pachamama.org/news/the-achuar-will-have-a-network-of-boats-and-solar-recharge-stations-in-their-rivers

A new way to buy fashion-from the catwalk

IdeaSpies Myer

Retailer Myer has announced the release of a new online platform with a Tinder-like approach for guests attending Myer fashion parades, allowing them to buy clothes they see on-demand. Guests watching the parades are able to ‘scan’ a model in the parade using their phone camera and view the presented outfits on the mobile platform. You can either add the outfit to the shopping cart, or use Tinder’s swipe-left, swipe-right formula to save items for future purchase. http://www.startupdaily.net/2017/03/myer-creates-catwalk-cart-shopping-platform/

Stackable sports fields

Clever idea -sport pitches

Description: Children no longer play in the streets as they once did and adults who want an informal game after work are frustrated by lack of spaces and by high costs for what is available in many high density areas. Pitch/Pitch is a series of stackable 5-a-side football pitches to be erected on derelict or temporarily vacant sites across London. It’s designed to be a temporary installation. Fast and easy to erect, it could last for a fortnight to coincide with a World Cup tournament or for a year while a site lies dormant. It could also host other activities such as dance classes for children and adults during the day. http://www.ala.uk.com

A new cinema experience

dolby cinema_at1275_inside-1200x800-c (1)

Description: Every aspect of the new Dolby Cinema design is aimed at providing an unparalleled cinematic experience. The walls are five feet thick, with 18 inches of air cushion for total isolation from outside noises; the colour scheme is drenched in matte black paint for an ultimately dark room; the seats are curved and cushioned for an unfettered and comfy ride; the air conditioning designed to seep in below the seats so there’s no need for noisy compressors.The real magic, however, comes from the two elements that power Dolby Cinema’s sights and sounds: Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos. http://www.digitaltrends.com/movies/dolby-cinema-theater-the-force-awakens-tour-impressions/
