Roads are a highly polluted areas , with polluted air rising up and spreading across an area to create a blanket of toxic atmosphere – not to mention the impact on climate change. The ‘Eco Mushroom’ is a compact design for a solar powered street light equipped with CO2 scrubber to help remove some of this pollution. This artificial mushroom houses four directional LED street lights and an Air Purification System (APS). Four intakes suck in polluted air and pass it through the APS, positioned centrally within the structure. The purified air is finally released through the annular vent on the air duct built around the light pole. A network of Eco Mushrooms integrated into the existing roads could help curb automotive pollution effectively while allowing for smart integration that can send information to a central hub about pollution trends and maintenance needs. +  RISEpad  Images via RISEpad/ Tony Thomas Narikulam The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

To further that point, Ford recently patented the design for a radical electric vehicle any superhero would be happy to ride. Designers were inspired by the Batpod that the caped crusader uses to escape in The Dark Knight but the Ford version is even more fantastic because it features only one wheel.
