Comments25/02/2017 #1 CityVP 🐝 ManjitThe key thing here is that Apple Park is not post-Steve Jobs, this was his biggest legacy project and even made sure that in the design it had base isolators which make this building earthquake proof since these isolators move as the ground moves. It simply underscores why Steve Jobs pantheon is a monument to someone who was larger than life while alive and will remain a giant in the mythic heaven history reserved for this company's founder.
- 22/02/2017LEAF-SHAPED SOLAR PANELS COAT BUILDING LIKE IVY ►The revolutionary Solar Ivy project, from SMIT (Sustainably Minded Interactive Technology) combines the piezoelectric effect with photovoltaic technology to generate energy.
Using the sun and the wind to provide renewable energy for the building, the Solar Ivy system also becomes a shade screen that minimizes solar heat gain. Once again, nature serves as the perfect source of inspiration.
I hope this concept would become widely accepted.

Comments20/02/2017 #5 Claire L 🐝 CardwellSolar-power system could provide clean drinking water in rural India for the first time. A solar-powered purification system could slake the thirsts of rural India with clean drinking water for the first time. This would be no ordinary feat. Tens of millions of people in India lack access to potable water, and roughly 600,000 Indian children die every year from water- and sanitation-related diseases like diarrhea or pneumonia, according to UNICEF. In the country’s most far-flung regions, where 70 percent of India’s population lives, toxic bacteria routinely fouls at least half of the water supply. But while the Indian government has focused its efforts on treating surface water in rivers and streams, researchers from the University of Edinburgh in Scotland want to attack the source of contamination: sewage.
They’ve developed a system that uses sunlight to induce high-energy particles within a photocatalytic material, which uses light to generate a chemical reaction. These, in turn, activate molecules of oxygen, mobilizing them to destroy bacteria and other organic matter.
Because the materials require no power source, an off-grid system requires little more than attaching the photocatalyst to containers of contaminated water and angling them toward the sun until they’re safe to drink. If necessary, the system could be used in tandem with a filter to catch larger particles.
