Danny Taylor’s Dimmer Switch Teaches Kids Energy-Efficient Behavior With a Happy Face

Comments Off on Danny Taylor’s Dimmer Switch Teaches Kids Energy-Efficient Behavior With a Happy Face

Designer Danny Taylor found that most energy monitors do little to engage with children, so he created an interface for a light that attempts to inform children of energy wastage without bombarding them with data and statistics that they will not naturally engage with. This simple ‘dimmer switch’ humanizes an ordinarily ubiquitous object to help the child form a relationship with it. The act of turning the light on creates a ‘sad’ face, and turning it off makes the character ‘happy’. + Danny Daylor The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Comments Off on 100% Recycled Paperwallets are Pieces of Art That Hold Your Cash

The founders of Paperwallet wanted to create a new kind of canvas for art – so they designed a wallet that could feature the work of artists from all over the world. Consumers can carry around art in their pocket or purse without paying the gallery prices for a print, and with each purchase the artist gets a cut of the profit. Paperwallet is also available in solid colors if you like to keep it plain and simple. The wallet itself is made of 100% recyclable material, part of which is recycled Tyvek. It has pockets for cash, business and credit cards, and ID cards – but it is flat enough to hardly make a bulge in your pocket. + Paperwallet Via Designed Good The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

The foundation of the town’s rebuilding process will need to balance four primary goals: tsunami-resistance, sustainability, economic revitalization and social community.
