Have you ever wondered how much water you use while taking a shower? In any given bathing period, you’ll likely take time to shampoo your hair, wash off, and contemplate issues like world peace.

What if your wireless mouse didn’t need a battery?

When wireless mice first went mainstream, people were overjoyed to finally be rid of that annoying cable. While the appeal was there, they weren’t exactly the greatest of devices. Early receivers still had a cord, and still needed to be positioned on your desk to get a strong signal. And of course, battery life is still a problem these days. Sure, companies like Logitech have made mice that will go many months without needing fresh batteries, one company is taking…

It seems that books are starting to slowly filter out of homes, and eReaders and tablets are taking their place. Though it is a bit sad to see them go, the environment is probably a little happier about the shift. Even with these kinds of devices though, it takes energy to power them, which can be costly, and still have some adverse effects on the environment. Which is why cases like the SolarKindle can come in rather handy.
