Single use plastic containers and cutlery to be phased out

IMG_1967

The Hobart City Council in Tasmania has agreed to draft legislation that would phase out single-use plastic containers and cutlery by 2020. Instead of using plastic containers for home delivery and takeout, restaurants in the city of 220,000 would have to use ones made from cardboard, cornstarch or bamboo that could be composted. The move follows Tasmania’s ban on thin plastic bags in 2013. (Thicker retail bags are still allowed.) https://mobile.nytimes.com/2017/08/09/world/australia/plastic-tasmania-hobart.html?

A smart machine to make your favourite beer

iGulu-smart-brewing-machine (1)

A one-stop-shop where craft beer enthusiasts can simply brew beers without having to be a master brewer.

Food from Electricity? Shocking new way to deal with world hunger.

electric food spoon

A Finnish research team has taken a step towards the future of food by developing a method for producing food from electricity. If scaling it up proves to be successful, it could help in the fight against world hunger and climate change. The researchers created a batch of single-cell protein that is nutritious enough to serve for dinner using a system powered by renewable energy. The process requires electricity, water, carbon dioxide, and microbes. After exposing the raw materials to electrolysis in a bioreactor, a powder forms consisting of protein and carbohydrates. Textures can also be changed by altering microbes. https://futurism.com/a-team-of-scientists-just-made-food-from-electricity-and-it-could-be-the-solution-to-world-hunger/

A deposit return scheme that reduces littering

IMG_1744

A deposit return scheme that experts say drastically reduces the number of plastic bottles and cans littering streets and seas is being introduced around the world. The idea has the backing of global drinks company Coca-Cola and comes amid warnings that the worldwide plastics binge poses as serious a threat as climate change. South Australia introduced container deposit legislation in 1977! https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2017/jul/04/tackle-uk-plastic-bottle-problem-with-money-back-scheme-ministers-told?

Umbrella Cup Holder

AI-Umbrella-With-Cup-Holder

For those of us multi-taskers…It’s essentially a cup holder that attaches to the handle of your umbrella. It’s got a gimbal mechanism to ensure that your cups always stay level and don’t spill. That way, you can carry your drink (and even an extra one!) while holding your umbrella with one hand and whatever else you need to carry in the other. 😀 https://technabob.com/blog/2014/03/24/morella-umbrella-cup-holder/

Packaging that changes colour when food spoils

IMG_1647

A Brazilian company has partnered with universities in the U.S. and Brazil to create food packaging that will change color to alert you when it spoils. The package uses PH indicators to determine whether the food has spoiled. The first prototype of the technology was released last year–if successfully incorporated, it could help with problems of food waste and prevent consumers from navigating confusing labels. https://www.psfk.com/2017/05/packaging-changes-colors-to-alert-shoppers-when-food-spoils.html

A robot that can deal with lawn, leaves and snow

IMG_1646

The world’s first 3-in-1 autonomous robot can mow the lawn, clean up leaves, and remove snow. It cuts and mulches the lawn a fraction of an inch every time, picks up the leaves before they pile up, and removes snow a few inches at a time while it’s still falling. It has a rechargeable battery and will automatically dock itself in its charging station when it needs a power boost. www.thekobi.com
