bios Urn



This Awesome Urn Will Turn You into a Tree After You Die


MAY 6, 2011, 11:50 PM
Bios3
You don't find many designers working in the funeral business thinking about more creative ways for you to leave this world (and maybe they should be). However, the product designer Gerard Moline  has combined the romantic notion of life after death with an eco solution to the dirty business of the actual, you know, transition.
His Bios Urn is a biodegradable urn made from coconut shell, compacted peat and cellulose and inside it contains the seed of a tree. Once your remains have been placed into the urn, it can be planted and then the seed germinates and begins to grow. You even have the choice to pick the type of plant you would like to become, depending on what kind of planting space you prefer.

Bloom energy

bloom energy or bloom box is a type of secretive source of making electricity that has the potential to make electricity for homes and businesses with no harmful effects to the earth as far as my research on this extraordinary technology has come to show.  this has been shown to be a renewable source of electricity.

the inventor of the bloom box KR sridhar who founded bloom energy at 2002 had been keeping his invention very secretive by putting no signs on his buildings, having a encrypted website, no public progress reports.

below is a picture of KR sridhar founder of bloom energy, holding a bloom box.









the way he made his bloom energy was firstly by taking beach sand found in masses, into a ceramic, thin plate. then covering one side of the thing sheet of oven-baked sand with green ink and the other with black ink, this green and black ink has a special formula he didn't tell to the public because of obvious reasons. one sheet of beach sand with black and green ink on each side is a fuel cell which can power a light bulb. what he does is that he takes these thin fuel cells and in puts thin metal plates in between these fuel cells. instead of using expensive platinum, he uses cheap metal alloy.







the black inked side takes in oxygen and the green inked side takes in fuel which can be taken from fossil fuels like natural gas and the bloom box can also use renewable fuels like land-fill gas, bio-gas and solar.
the green inked area on the picture below represents the intake of fuels for the fuel cell and the dark inked one represents the intake of oxygen.









some companies took the opportunity at hand and silents bought their products to be tested. companies like FedEx, Walmart, staples, eBay, and Google was the very first customer for bloom box. the companies took these opportunity because in California where they are based the electrical costs are almost half to the rest of the costs.
the bloom boxes installed in Google were being used for 18 months and had problems with them caused by pollution and dirt, as they require oxygen, air is pumped in and dirt came in and clogged up the system, the repair men just had to switch the system and it was all working again.

eBay was a fairly new customer for bloom box because they had bought five massive bloom boxes that were sitting outside the lawn and they fuel almost 15% of the fuel for the whole campus which were working for 9 months. the bloom boxes saved the companies about a 100,000 dollars in electricity costs, "its been very successful so far..." John Donahoe CEO of eBay.  eBay bloom boxes run on the required oxygen and bio-gas made from land-fill masses, which makes them carbon neutral.

eBay has 3000 solar panels that generate less electricity then the 5 bloom boxes in eBay's lawn.









one of the problems with bloom energy is that making them and keeping up with orders will be very difficult because they only one a day.

the inventor of bloom energy or bloom boxes said that in up to 5 to 10 years 1 unit will cost under 3000 dollars.



what it's all about

Hello. if your wondering what is the purpose for this blog. It is that to see new and cool renewable energy and interesting everyday alternatives to making electricity.

electricity is something we require to make our lives in this earth easier. For those in the world who do not have electricity or are suffering from electrical shortages then one of the main purposes for this blog is to show weird as well as mainstream alternatives to energy, both renewable and nonrenewable. I will also be showing other interesting things about living green and clean in this earth.

i will be showing new inventions, not everything on my blog will particularly have to be a subject on green energy. 

will be updating the blog with new cool things. please follow by entering your email and getting the latest posts on the new and cool inventions, technology, gadgets, and nature friendly products.

fresnel lenses, (high intensity ray)

Fresnel lenses are thin sheets of transparent lenses that can be used for magnifying the suns rays for up to 3002 C degrees heat. They are normally found in old projection TV's. but can also be bought separately from eBay.
old televisions like the one in the picture below are the type of television where you can find Fresnel lens.












they have a ruff side and a smooth side. the ruff side is the actual Fresnel lens and that should face the sun.












you can optimize the efficiency of the rays of the Fresnel lens by making a stand for it which can be adjusted to the direction of the sun. cleaning the lens in a dark area before use has been told to make it work even better!















Fresnel lenses can be used to work Stirling engines that work from heat.

these lenses can be used to melt as tough metal as steel. but can easily melt aluminum, or copper coins.
as you can see in the picture below, the copper coins are in the focal point of suns rays that are intensified by the sheet of Fresnel lenses.
