Comments Off on Zeo Will Transform Waste Paper and Water Into a Material as Hard as Ebony

Zeo transforms waste paper and water (and nothing else) into a patented molding material that sets as hard as ebony. The material, aptly called  Zeoform , is expected to replace wood and wood composites, fiberglass and plastics in a host of everyday consumer items, industrial products and construction applications, cutting down on waste and conserving precious resources. The creators of Zeo will be launching a crowdfunding campaign at the Sydney EcoXpo on September the 20th called ‘One In A Million’. Learn more about their initiative here  or watch their video above! The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader. Want to see your story on Inhabitat ?

Comments Off on George H.W. Bush Goes ‘Rogue’ and Buys His Son a Chevy Volt

Former prez  George H.W. Bush recently gave the gift of the Chevrolet Volt to his son Neil for his 57th birthday. A Houston dealership took delivery of the gift to Bush’s fourth son, who ironically has spent much of his career holding positions within the oil industry . Bush Sr.’s purchase adds the 41st president to a growing list of prominent Republicans going ‘rogue’ and publicly rethinking conservative criticism of the car. Read the rest of George H.W.

Dodo Lab’s Prototype Series Turns Unwanted Furniture Into Modern Interior Treasures

Comments Off on Dodo Lab’s Prototype Series Turns Unwanted Furniture Into Modern Interior Treasures

Dodo Lab is a research project set up by Michaela Robinson and Karen Smart that experiments with different ways of regenerating old and unwanted pieces of furniture anew. In a series they dub simply as “Prototype”, each piece comes with a QR (Quick Response) Code that unites the Prototype’s past and present. By scanning the barcode with a smartphone, information about its former life is unlocked, adding a unique human history to the once neglected object, making it valuable and special once more. The Prototypes can only be bought by swapping services or by doing a good deed, much like designers helping each other within their working environment, therefore the only currency used is the swap or deed itself. Each prototype also comes with a product tag that has instructions on the back explaining how the new owner can contribute to its ongoing narrative by generating a QR Code of their own. + Dodo Lab The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
