Greetings, Trendwatchers! In this podcast, Nora Young talks about a design for powering portable electronics such as your iPhone – with your breath!
The Aire is a concept design (the technology doesn’t yet exist) by João Lammoglia, which features a mask that you wear, designed to harness the wind power of your breath.
It’s kind of goofy, we admit, but beneath it lies a serious point: how are we going to power all these gadgets and devices we have? See images and more over at Fast Company.
Me, on the other hand, continue exploring my love of Maglevtechnology with the Evacuated Tube Transport system. Would you propel yourself through a tube under the ocean, at speeds up to 6500 MPH to get fromToronto to Bejing in two hours?
Since that it is getting close to suborbital speeds, it would require fair leap of faith to get in the tube. However we won’t have oil forever and since the global economy demands being able to shift goods and people easily, the Evacuated Tube System might be coming soon to a city near you.
Holy nearly teleportation time Bat Man!
