Solar Rechargeable RC Car goes green

Almost every child likes playing with a remote controlled car. Maybe it’s the wonder of being in control of something moving very fast, or perhaps it’s imagining that you’re driving a real car. Whatever the case, you put the remote in their hands, and a kid is going to have a blast. As the parent, however, the toy can be a real drain. Mostly on your wallet, due to the batteries the car eats up. If you’re looking for an…

There are a lot of motorcycles in the world. You have the choice of all different shapes and sizes, but most options out there are not terribly earth-friendly.

Hack your eReader to charge by sunlight

If you’re looking to read eBooks, but don’t have any real use for a tablet, then an eReader with an E Ink display (did I use the letter ‘e’ enough in that sentence for you?) is probably your best bet. The display is much easier on the eyes than a traditional LCD screen, and they use considerably less power. Knowing that they can go so long without needing recharged, one Instructables user decided that his Kobo reader was the perfect…

Mobius Solar iPhone Battery helps you on your path to be “green”

It’s hard to think about being eco-friendly with your gadgets. After all, just owning one isn’t very “green”. Just think of all of the materials that went into constructing your favorite device, and how much energy was used to craft it. Then you go out and by cases and accessories, which will no doubt end up in a landfill someday. The very least you can do is try to occasionally recharge it with something other than a wall outlet. This…

Build your own solar FM radio for $3

In the event of a major disaster, it’s always good to have a radio on hand. You might think that your cell phone is going to get you through a crisis, but if it’s something on a large scale, such as an earthquake, you might have trouble getting calls through. Generally, you can flip on your radio and find some sort of up-to-date information on what’s going on. But how many of you actually have a radio that’s battery-powered? And…
