GameBoy resurrected from the dead, with the power of the sun

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on April 5th, 2011

When is a dead Gameboy not a dead Gameboy? When this guy gets hold of it. Andrew had a damaged GameBoy and much like Dr, Frankenstein, he didn’t just give up. He laid his monster on a table one dark and stormy night, opened a solar powered garden lamp and used the photovoltaic cells on the GameBoy.

The storm subsided and the clouds parted. This was followed by shouts of “It’s alive!” The GameBoy now soaks up the sun’s rays and stays on forever, without running out of energy, as long as the sun shines. It uses two AA rechargeable batteries that store all the energy it gets from the sun.

Solar powered charging usually doesn’t look this good.

The Eton Mobius has a 1800mAh battery and will add about 20mm to your iPhone’s thickness, while doubling your iPhone’s battery life. It will charge your iPhone directly from the sun at a rate of 20minutes of talk time for every hour in the sun.

Hexound headset can be turned into speakers

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on December 23rd, 2010

The Hexound headset’s design is definitely drool-worthy. It’s just a concept for now, but we sure hope they become real. The headset can be detached and then they are turned into portable speakers. There’s also a solar panel in the headband.

Other specs include Bluetooth and intuitive controls. With these, you can listen to your music alone or share it whenever the mood strikes you, just by detaching. Hopefully these become real one day soon. I know I would buy them.

The company plans to install almost a million units across the country by 2020. The CFC free units which are also called 3D Vis will have solar panels, LED lighting, a display and the option to process multiple cashless payments.

HydroFill device makes hydrogen for MiniPak fuel cell charger

Posted in fuel cell by Shane McGlaun on July 22nd, 2010

Hydrogen fuel cells are one of the things that promise to power our gadgets without needing to plug them in or use electricity. However, getting the hydrogen for the fuel cells to run on does require power of some sort.

A new device called the HydroFill is available that can be ran from an AC outlet or a solar panel. The device uses plain distilled water to generate hydrogen that it stores inside HydroStik containers. Those HydroStik containers can then be used in the MiniPak hand held fuel cell charger.

Elements Water Powered Clock

Posted in Clocks by Conner Flynn on April 26th, 2010

If you want to go green, but aren’t sure where to start, maybe you can start with this alarm clock. It doesn’t use any electricity and it’s not solar powered. Instead, it runs on the power of water.

In fact, this clock runs on water for 1.5 weeks without having to refill the water tubes. It would make a great conversation piece and you’ll know that you are doing your part for the environment. Just in case you forget to water it, it also has a backup cell battery.


HP Flexible Wrist Display

Posted in HP by Conner Flynn on April 15th, 2010

Soldiers of the future will have all kinds of cool gear that will not only keep them safe, but also make everyday life easier. HP is one of the companies working on this cool gear. They have some interesting display technologies for one. They are working on a prototype solar-powered lightweight computer display that is flexible enough for a soldier’s wrist.

The display is just 200 microns thick, and is capable of displaying data like maps or directions and will be powered by solar cells. Prototypes go to the military next year. Once they get them, they can be tweaked and get all of the bugs worked out.

Concept car turns carbon dioxide into oxygen

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on April 12th, 2010

The “YeZ” takes solar-powered car design one step further, by acting like a tree. Just like a tree, it sucks in carbon dioxide and releases it as oxygen. Plus there’s the whole tree design to really drive it home. The canopy over the driver and passenger looks like a big leaf.

The energy created by this process, small wind turbines fixed to the wheels and solar panels on the vehicle’s canopy are what will keep it rolling. Right now it’s just a concept, but who knows, you may be riding in one soon.

BunBun Eco Light: Twirl to charge

Posted in Flashlights by Conner Flynn on April 1st, 2010

Eco gadgets that don’t require batteries usually have a solar panel in them. Or maybe they require you to crank a handle to juice it up. Well, the BunBun Eco Light has neither. Instead, you just have to twirl it around for about 30 seconds.

All of that kinetic energy will juice the battery and give you 5 minutes of light using a trio of LEDs. You would probably be twirling something anyway, like your keys. The BunBun Eco Light should arrive this month for around $22 in pink, green, purple and black colors.

Plants might have a chance at my house with Plant Mate

Posted in Concepts by Shane McGlaun on March 5th, 2010

If plants should ever take over the world and only Mark Walberg, M. Night Shyamalan, and I are left to stand trial for mistreatment of innocent houseplants, I will be in big trouble. I have single handedly killed tons of my plants over the years from simply not watering them.

A new design concept at Yanko Design is cool and if I could get a set of the things, my plants might have a chance. The solar power Plant Mate sticks poke into the ground and would sense the moisture levels and nutrients in the soil.
