Comments Off on Artemide’s Flat-Pack Copernico Pendant is a Heliocentric Starburst of LED Light

Artemide’s Copernico Luminaire is an out-of-this-world pendant lamp that consists of nine concentric rings stamped from a single plate of lightweight aluminum. 384 white LEDs line the rings, which rotate independently on two different axes, enabling the light emission to be directed and numerous spatial configurations to be obtained. Corpernico was designed by Carlotta de Bevilacqua , who drew inspiration from the heliocentric theory of Nicolaus Copernicus. + Artemide + Carlotta de Bevilacqua Via Interior Deluxe The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Comments Off on Commuter X4: Powerful Strap-on Fiber Optic Light Makes Cyclists Super Visible at Night

Cyclists don’t ever have to worry about riding at night again! Veglo’s award-winning safety light, the Commuter X4, is a fiber optic light worn over cyclists’ shoulders to create a unique illuminated shape aiding drivers to judge the distance and speed of cyclists and motorcyclists more quickly and accurately. The company was founded by passionate cyclist Ed Ward and Lucy Lynn-Evans after Ed was knocked off his bike from behind and thrown into a busy four-way junction in London. They have been on a mission to bring more powerful, practical and affordable lights to cyclists ever since. The Commuter X4 has certainly proven its popularity in the marketplace, having smashed its initial target to reach an incredible 120% funding on the crowdfunding platform Kickstarter in April, allowing it to roll out large scale production of the fiber optic light, which will be in stores this winter. + Veglo The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Comments Off on African Cocoa Farmers Tasting Chocolate for the First Time – Priceless

It is a sad fact and indicator of the inequality of our society that many of those who put in the labor may never taste its fruits. A group of cocoa bean farmers in Africa’s Ivory Coast recently had the opportunity to do just that when they tasted the chocolate made with their beans for the first time. A correspondent from Metropolis TV visited the farmers and gave them their first-ever chocolate bar – hit the jump to see a video of their reaction.

Comments Off on Zappos Billionaire is Transforming Downtown Las Vegas into a Sustainable Urban Center

Back in the 1940s, an entrepreneur named Bugsy Siegel had big dreams for a shimmering oasis in the heart of the Mojave desert, and from his vision, the Las Vegas as we know it today was born. 70 years later the heart of the city is crumbling, but another visionary has appeared with an entirely new dream for the struggling downtown area. Today, Zappos billionaire Tony Hsieh is working hard along with the Downtown Partnership to change Sin City into a flourishing, sustainable urban center.
