A cotton shirt you don’t have to iron

Imagine a shirt with the soft, natural feel of cotton but it doesn’t need to be ironed. Imagine as well active wear that breathes and is not smelly. While some synthetic fibres can do this, they are made from petrochemicals and every time you wash them, tiny microfibers of material are pulled free and enter our waterways. These fibres do not break down and can build up in the food chain. When you wash cotton, fibres are also shed but these are biodegradable and will break down rapidly. Some 100 % cotton products currently don’t need ironing but these tend to have been treated with chemicals to give them their special properties. CSIRO is working on the solution. https://blog.csiro.au/best-of-both-whorls-cotton-with-the-benefits-of-synthetics/

Building an Online Marketplace

Anyone who has tried to build an online marketplace or a completely custom website knows that it can be very costly. That’s where Arcadier comes in. We aim to empower communities and entrepreneurs with our marketplace technology so they can make a difference. The ability to enable digitization of marketplaces will also drive the greater good of humanity, using fewer global resources (people, building materials, paper, electricity) to set up physical stores, yet allowing the same facilitation of driving a perfect economy of discovery and trade or peer-to-peer exchange. www.arcadier.com

The world’s first digital super model

Shudu has been called the “world’s first digital supermodel.” Experts think she may be the beginning of a new wave of digital models. She arrives at a time in which Instagram, Snapchat filters and photo-editing apps that rely on artificial intelligence have blurred the lines between reality and fantasy, Some believe we might see a hybrid system in future in which models and celebrities license out their digital avatar, allowing them to book multiple appearances simultaneously. A model might appear at a New York fashion shoot in person, but their digital avatar would be in China promoting a movie using the local dialect. https://www.washingtonpost.com/technology/2018/08/08/soon-most-beautiful-people-world-may-no-longer-be-human/?

Granny flats to provide affordable housing

A new startup pays the upfront cost of a backyard dwelling in Portland US in exchange for some of the rent it generates. Portland has a paralyzing shortage of affordable housing that officials believe more granny flats/accessory dwelling units (ADUs) could help address. Homeowners are embracing the idea: ADUs are popping up faster there than anywhere else in the US. But financing a full-fledged secondary housing unit is out of reach for many homeowners.  Dweller, a startup aimed at helping more homeowners afford ADUs, pays the cost of purchasing and installing one-size-fits-all prefabricated ADUs in backyards. Third-party property managers rent out the unit to long-term tenants, and Dweller splits the revenues 70-30 with the homeowner, as if the company is leasing the land. https://www.citylab.com/equity/2018/03/portlands-granny-flats-get-an-affordable-boost/555083/

Clean hydrogen to rival the LNG industry

Hydrogen has huge potential as a fuel. It can be easily transported and stored in the form of ammonia. But, until now, the challenge remained: how can we extract pure hydrogen at the point of need – for example, at a fuelling station? CSIRO’s new hydrogen membrane technology has solved this problem. They’ve created a metal membrane that filters out pure hydrogen gas from ammonia. It can then be dispensed into fuel cell cars, buses and even trucks. Hydrogen could now rival the LNG industry. https://blog.csiro.au/hyper-for-hydrogen-our-world-first-carbon-free-fuel/

3 simple ways to be more creative

1. Get to a work- or task-free space -the creative default network in your brain thrives when you aren’t distracted 2. Try not to set any objective for your mind-wandering. Free yourself up to let your imagination roam to unlikely and unexpected places 3. Disrupt yourself: Add a dose of novelty to whatever task-free experience you’re using in order to activate your brain’s default network. Meet somebody outside your usual circle, go to a museum exhibition on your own. Novelty helps shake the brain out of its familiar cognitive patterns, opening up opportunities to engage in new ways of thinking and being. https://www.fastcompany.com/90204263/a-very-short-guide-to-the-most-creative-part-of-your-brain?

A creative way to clean a city

Crows are highly intelligent, copy each others behaviour and live abundantly in cities making them the ultimate cleaners of the city. They are capable of collecting cigarette filters on the most difficult places where normal city cleaners can’t reach.The Crowbar is the device developed by a startup called Crowded Cities. It’s designed to train crows to pick up and deposit cigarette butts. A crow drops a cigarette filter onto the device’s funnel, where a camera scans it. After the camera recognizes the item as a filter, it releases a piece of food for the crow to pick up as a reward. The crow then flies off to find more cigarette butts and recruit more crows to participate. www.crowdedcities.com
