Comments Off on EPEAT Defends its Decision to Approve Apple’s Ultrathin MacBooks

Earlier this week the Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT) made a bit of an environmental stir when it approved five of Apple’s newest ultrathin laptops – even though Apple initially withdrew from the registry because their new models are more difficult to recycle. The move drew criticism from Greenpeace, who accused EPEAT of loosening its standards to give Apple a pass, however EPEAT is sticking to its guns – the green registry just released a statement backing up its admission of the new Apple products.

Comments Off on Apple Pulls EPEAT Green Electronics Certification from its Products

Apple products are no longer green, at least according to the world’s leading green electronics certifier. The  Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT) , a government-sponsored green electronics certification system, announced that Apple has withdrawn all 39 of its certified desktop computers, laptops and monitors from the list of green electronics, and the company will no longer be submitting its products for environmental rating. The irony is that Apple was one of the companies that helped create the standard in the first place.

Comments Off on MIT’s New Battery-Free Chip Captures Energy From Light, Heat And Vibrations at the Same Time

MIT scientists have developed a new electronic chip that could mark a critical first step towards battery-free systems. The potent chip is able to operate on extremely low levels of power, and it can harvest energy from a range of sources – including sunlight , heat and environmental vibrations – at the same time, meaning it won’t go offline if one energy source cuts out.

Comments Off on The Power365 Concept is a Solar Powered Portable Power Supply

Power 365 is a concept for a next generation smart power supply that uses a simplistic arrangement of solar cells and light emitting technology. Designed by Phil Pauley, the portable device aims to produce enough juice to charge mobile phones, laptops, mp3 players and more. If produced, Power 365 would range in price from $200 for small mobile devices up to $50,000+ for a large scale linked rack of many devices for more powerful domestic or commercial applications. + Phil Pauley The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Comments Off on Oscar Vinals’ XLDron Zero Gravity Rocket Plane Concept Launches Tourists Into Space

Virgin Galactic recently started taking reservations for the first mass tourist trips into space; now designer Oscar Vinals envisions a way to make space tourism possible for the day tripper, with the XLDron Zero Gravity rocket plane. The XLDron is an unmanned ultra-high bypass turbofan engined plane that carries passengers up to 35,000 feet before releasing their separate module, the Zero Gravity, from the craft. The Zero Gravity then uses rocket propellers similar to those on a NASA craft, to take off into near space.
