Comments Off on Watch African Cocoa Farmers Taste Chocolate for the First Time

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.

Nepalese Teen Invents Cheap Solar Panel Using Human Hair

Comments Off on Nepalese Teen Invents Cheap Solar Panel Using Human Hair

Did you know that melanin , the pigment in hair, is light sensitive and can be used as a conductor? Well, that’s what an 18 year old in Nepal recently discovered, and is now using human hair to replace silicon in solar panels. Since the price of hair is considerably cheaper than silicon, this enterprising youth may have just found a breakthrough technology to help bring down the cost of solar and give thousands of people in developing nations access to affordable renewable energy.

Comments Off on NASA Confirms “Impossible” Propellant-free Microwave Thruster for Spacecraft Works!

Designs for a device called a microwave thruster, which could power spacecraft without the need for propellant, have been proposed since 2006 . While the engine follows the principles of relativity theory in converting electrical energy into force to produce thrust , it has been dismissed as impossible in practice since it defies the law of conservation of momentum. But a team from NASA has just successfully trialled their own version of the engine, which changes everything.

Comments Off on Marking the Forest : An Architecture Course in the Oregon Woods

People who love architecture tend to love wild spaces as well: after all, buildings and landscapes complement one another, right? Well, imagine being able to study architecture design in a forest environment, where structures are created in symbiosis with the living environment. Sounds amazing, doesn’t it? If this sounds like something you’d love to study, you’re in luck: there’s an architecture studio in the heart of the Eugene, Oregon forest called Marking the Forest that might pique your curiosity. The course is given through the Architectural Association in collaboration with the University of Oregon , and delves into subjects such as thoughtfully marking and occupying wild terrain, and re-appropriation of wood into a forest. If this course interests you (or you know someone who’d love to take it), check out the links below for more information. + Marking the Forest + University of Oregon Architecture and Allied Arts The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
