Meet Nokero, the world’s only solar light bulb which has been designed to replace kerosene lamps and provide light to homes who are unable to afford electricity.

Oops! The light bulbs are melting away. May be light bulbs cannot physically melt away but in today’s world, light bulbs are indeed ‘melting away’ from the household, office, shops etc. With LED replacing the simple old bulbs for a more efficient option, incandescent bulbs will soon be gone. Designer Keita Ogawa tries to express the vanishing scenario with her beautiful creation of Melt Bulbs.

As compared to the regular 60 watt bulb with 1000 hours efficiency, Endura would be able to impart 25,000 hours of functionality.
Do you think this is a folded paper? Well of course it is…[but between you and me it is just an imitation]. This is actually a wallet that looks like a folded paper from a notebook, making it just the right holder for your cash and credit.
So how do sea kites look like? According to an artist’s rendition they should look like as seen in this picture above. The purpose? A Swedish company named Minesto is planning to harness tidal energy using Sea Kites attached to the ocean floor as another source of ‘renewable’ energy. The system is called the ‘Deep Green‘ technology and as the data goes, each underwater turbine is estimated to produce 500 kilowatts of electricity.
