Restaurant gets fresh herbs from nature strip

IMG_1907

Chef Emile Avramides, a graduate of the exacting kitchens of Gordon Ramsay’s Maze restaurants in London and Melbourne, has chosen a quiet shopping strip in Randwick to debut his Sydney restaurant, Clove Lane. A clever reason for this location is to grow fresh herbs for the restaurant on the adjoining nature strip. http://www.goodfood.com.au/eat-out/news/maze-graduate-to-open-clove-lane-in-randwick-20170309-guv1ld

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

A straw that prevents date rape

IMG_1529

This straw has two strips on the end that can detect roofies (Rohypnol), GHB (gamma hydroxybutyric acid) and Ketamine, which are “overwhelmingly the most common club drugs” used on women. If even the smallest trace of drugs is present in a drink, the tip of the straw will turn blue. http://www.inspiremore.com/date-rape-straw/?

A bike with a built-in bar

IMG_1475

A small wooden box is built to fit the exact dimensions of the negative space on a bicycle — and then gets filled with everything you need for drinks in the park. There’s even a tiny fold-out table. Of course, you could also use this for picnic supplies like fruit, cheese and a baguette should you prefer. https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/bike-has-built-in-bar-its-blowing-our-minds-sarah-ling

A water capsule you can drink

Screen Shot 2017-04-14 at 10.32.28 PM

Plastic bottles make it easy to transport water, but it takes energy to make the bottles. When you’re done with your drink, it takes more energy to unmake the bottle, as plastics won’t fully degrade on their own. Now a startup called Skipping Rock Labs thinks we can just skip plastic bottles entirely. It has developed a capsule called “Ooho!” for transporting water that is not only biodegradable, it’s edible. https://www.extremetech.com/extreme/247672-seaweed-based-water-pouch-aims-end-need-plastic-bottles

Making seawater drinkable
