Usually the start of environmental programs confines to tapping and making use of energy from recyclable sources, now it has led to various inventions of products that are simply amazing. These green inventions are contributing in a great way to save the environment and our precious resources. Check out some green inventions that will make you wonder if it was possible at all.
LEGO car running on compressed air
A Romanian boy, Raoul Oaida, has developed a compressed air-powered car made with around 500,000 pieces of LEGO bricks. This car really runs at a speed of 16 miles per hour. Installed with four orbital motors and a propulsion system, this car is completely safe for the environment, as it does not produce noise and pollution.
While it is not a very comfortable umbrella to carry, it features a unique design. Invented in Japan, this ecological umbrella is upside down and collects rainwater while you take a walk outside. It features a plastic tube that helps in collecting water and takes it to an attached tank. Thus, this eco-friendly device can help you save on your water bills.
Printer coffee residues
Jeon Hwan Ju is a Korean designer who has invented this printer that does not use ink for printing purposes. Instead, it uses residues of tea and coffee that are green in nature. There are no emissions from this printer and it saves oil too. This wonderful green innovation is helpful in waste recycling.
It is the world’s biggest solar-powered boat. This amazing catamaran has a surface installed with photovoltaic panels that help in capturing sunlight and generating power from it. This power makes the boat run around as easily as a regular boat would do. Turanor PlanetSolar is on a long world journey using only solar power.
Think about recharging your phone using clothes you are wearing. If it does not look possible, then we would like to inform that physicists working in the Wake Forest University, North Carolina, USA have turned it into a reality. They have designed solar clothes that make use of our bodily heat and convert it into energy. This energy even has the capability to recharge your mobile phone’s battery. Inventions like this really indicate toward a brighter and greener future.
It is an all-in-one docking station, speaker system and insulated cooler. This green device runs on the energy of sun. However, there still are some doubts about its high performance.
Have you ever thought of brushing your teeth without toothpaste and while standing under the sun? Now, you can enjoy all this while adopting a greener practice to save the environment. The Soladey solar-powered toothbrush works under sunlight without spinning or vibrating. It actually transforms light into negative ions. These ions then mix with our saliva that further leads to a breakdown of molecular bonds. These bonds are the ones attaching plaque to our teeth. Thus, you can simply brush your teeth without toothpaste.
There are several innovations taking place every day to make our environment greener and cleaner. Many of these green innovations and their concepts are simply amazing.
