FuellessGenerator.net has just shown off a tiny portable energy bike that is able to churn out to power in order to recharge its portable solar powered generators, now how about that for clean energy that is sustainable in the long run of things? The company has managed to modify its fitness bike, allowing it to end up as a hybrid electric generator bike which is not only light – making it extremely portable along the way, but it is also full well capable of charging up just about any cell phone or 12 volt battery regardless of whether it is during the day or at night. Heck, it can also produce household AC 120 volt electricity on demand when it is paired to a small inverter.
Halloween is just around the corner, which means we’ve been spending the month watching scary movies. Sadly, a common theme is that people are always out of power for their phones, lights, and other electronic devices at just the worst possible time. If you want to make sure you’re never that person, then why don’t you stop relying on electricity? It’s a bit of a tall order, but there are options out there that will let you do it!
I suppose it is not too wrong to think that the modern buzzword at the moment would be “going green” or being “eco-friendly”. In fact, anything that has four wheels and have the word “hybrid” plastered on it is given the thumbs up, as such vehicles consume far less gas than the average car with … Read more
When you think of a pen, a plastic, metal ball-point version comes to mind. Of course, you have likely gone through a few in your lifetime, having to throw them away after you’ve exhausted the ink on the inside. It always feels a bit wasteful, but only the more expensive options will allow you to get refills, and even then, the refills are usually rather costly. With all that effort to save one pen, you’re still throwing out the plastic tube at the end of the day.
Whether or not we want to admit it, we’re all concerned about how we smell. Hygiene is important, but even if you bathe every day, there’s one thing you never want to forget. Deodorant hides the body odor that comes naturally with going through your day. While some people don’t have as pungent a smell as others, it’s something we all deal with. There are tons of different smells and types of deodorant out there, but it’s very simple to accidentally get it on your clothes when putting it on.
If you’ve ever tried composting, you know it’s not exactly for the faint of heart. There are a lot of overwhelming smells, bugs, and manual labor that you will have to keep up with over a long period of time. If you want to cut down on the amount of trash you put out and get some fertilizer for free, then you might want to look into an option that will compost your food automatically.
When you want to relax, there are a few different ways you can go about it. Listening to calming music, breathing techniques, doing some yoga, having some tea, lighting some incense, and the list could go on and on. Whatever way you choose to calm yourself, there’s one surefire way to ruin your inner calm pretty quickly.
When we go to take a shower, it’s usually not because we’re covered in dirt and grime. We’ve gotten to be very sensitive to smell and minute details. This means our body smell and oil from our hair is often the main cause to bathe. We’re a long way off from living out in the woods, but if we had to be out in the wilderness, chances are you’re going to want to wash off in some way. The only problem being that there isn’t exactly plumbing for the middle of nowhere.
If you so happen to be well off enough to actually own a swimming pool in your home, then to pick and choose the various accessories for it would make plenty of sense. After all, swimming lap after lap in it can get boring after a while, unless you are on some sort of strict … Read more
There is this particularly famous song that goes “London Bridge is falling down”, which is a ditty that I suppose most of us would know by heart. The city of London has plenty of bridges, actually, and London Bridge is not the only one. It seems that there is another addition to the number of bridges in that part of the world, which so happens to be a solar bridge. Not only that this is the world’s largest solar bridge, where it is called the Blackfriars Bridge. The Blackfriars Bridge happens to be part of the Blackfriars Station in London, where it has been fitted with 4,400 photovoltaic panels. The installation of these solar panels will hopefully reduce the station’s CO2 emissions by an estimated 511 tonnes (563 tons) annually.
