Moosshiqk – the world’s smallest electric bike

Moosshiqk is the world’s smallest electric bike. It’s 12 inches high, 18 inches long and can be assembled and disassembled in less than a minute. Max speed 15 km/h. Santosh made it, and that’s probably him riding it there. Notice however, that in the video (below) you can see him wearing the batteries under his T-shirt. Probably a little bit uncomfortable for long runs eh?    Moosshiqk – is a 12 inch height, 18 inch length battery driven bike. Only…

Eco Water Clock – just add water to travel through time

This Eco Water Clock is basic to the extreme, but maybe that’s the future of eco utility? Fill the two containers with water and sit back as the time appears on the LCD. Small print – the electrodes will only operate in water for 2 years, after which you’ll need to throw away the clock or work out how to replace the electrodes. Not quite so eco after all then? £4.99.  The new technology of combining water power to everyday…

Andrea – naturally purified air

Andrea is the world’s first biologically natural air filter. It works by using naturally growing plants to purify the atmosphere in a room, using air, water and soil filtration to remove noxious stuff from the air in a room. It certainly looks very cool, not sure whether the plants feel so happy about their role in the process though. But who’s going to ask them? $199.99.  It naturally purifies air by drawing it with a whisper-quiet fan to propel it through…

Ionator – turn your ordinary tap water into household cleaning juice

The new Ionator system turns ordinary tap water into a universal cleaning material which apparently cleans and disinfects all household surfaces like a wizard – and without a nasty chemical in sight. It accomplishes this miraculous feat by injecting the water with electrically charged nano-bubbles.   These bubbles improve the cleaning properties of the water sufficiently enough to mimic the use of bleach or other cleaning agents. Result? Clean surface. The bad news is you’ll have to pay $169.00 for…

Freeloader Pico – take the slow train to charge-ville and I’ll meet you at the station…

The Freeloader Pico is small, delicate and iPodyish, but it’ll take you 10 hours to charge its internal battery, which could be a tad too long if it’s an emergency call you’re wanting. Still, it’s nice to know there’s a solar fall back if the USB recharger part fails you in the desert. For some reason. $39.99.  # Compact and lightweight solar charger for small electronic devices # Advanced solar cell and lithium ion battery technology # Solar panels will…

CubeTube – Power your office with solar power

Converting office lighting into solar is an “about time” idea. CubeTube takes otherwise wasted energy from lighting fixtures and uses it to power computer workstations. This unique looking, indoor photovoltaic electrical generator harvests ambient light, indoor florescent and incandescent lighting from all directions to create electricity. With a back-up internal Lithium Polymer/Ion battery and a smart charging system that monitors charging levels, should ambient lighting not be enough, the system automatically switches back to the battery. If the internal battery…

Magtenlight – zero battery bike light illuminates your way with magnetism

This Magtenlight Bicycle Lighting kit provides zero battery illumination by harnessing the power of magnetism. Just clip the magnets to the wheel, attach a rather clunky generator unit to the front forks and bingo, let there be light. The generator turns at a rate of 150 RPM when the bike is travelling at 15 km/h, but the really cool thing is the fact that the lamp keeps on shining for 4 minutes after the bike has come to a halt….

Piezoelectric Rubber – A new renewable energy source?

The name may not be a household word yet, but it may soon become one. Piezoelectric Rubber is a new technology for embedding piezoelectric tech onto rubberized material which could soon be used to power mobile phones and pacemakers. These stretchable rubber sheets embedded with ceramic nano ribbons could be used to make shoes which would generate electricity while we walk or jog, and so charge our cell phones or pedometers. Or by placing this material on our chests we…

Sprinkle Dress – The wearable garden

We’ve heard of wearable art, but a walking garden is a bit of a stretch. Designer Linda Schailon has created a garden fashionista’s delight – The Sprinkle Dress. Complete with integrated living plants, this unique fashion statement must be awkward to wear, much less move around in. It’s definitely meant to be eco-friendly, with the skirt draped by garden-wires that support planters that grow real plants in discarded yogurt containers. The designer created this from her childhood fantasy of a…
