No adult enjoys a visit to the hospital, so imagine the fear that must grip a child when they need to go into surgery. To help calm children on their way into the operating room,  Jason Bruges Studio  created an interactive LED wall installation that works to both distract and delight young patients. The installation, dubbed “ Nature Trail “, features glowing images of animals that are triggered by motion and move to follow children as they walk down the halls of the hospital to the OR.

Sky-scraping Tower Will Power 100,000 Homes with Hot Air

Comments Off on Sky-scraping Tower Will Power 100,000 Homes with Hot Air

A 2,600-foot tower planned for the Arizona desert will be the world’s second tallest structure and will be able to power 100,000 homes through hot air alone. The solar updraft tower , designed by EnviroMission, will work by collecting hot air as it rises from the heated ground surrounding it.  The very tall, narrow tower increases the strength of the hot air flowing upward, where it will turn 32 turbines along the way. The tower will be able to produce 200 MW of electricity each day and, unlike solar power technologies, will be able to produce electricity at night too since heat from the ground will still be flowing upward and it will operate without the use of water. This technology comes at a pretty steep price — $750 million to build — but since hot air is free, the operating costs going forward will be very minimal and the tower should last at least 80 years. The tower will be made of concrete, which is a very carbon-heavy material, but the clean energy produced by the tower should cancel out the carbon emissions of making it within 2.5 years. via CNN

Comments Off on when you’ve gotta go…go with less.

As a green website, we’re bound to talk about waste…even if it’s the kind of waste that no one really wants to talk about. That’s right, we’re talking about the old (#)1,2. The average toilet uses over 3 gallons of water per flush, which adds up to a lot of water going down the drain.

You already know about the importance of saving on paper and using recycled paper, but lots more of your daily wastage grows on trees. Non-recycled toilet paper, paper towel and tissues are made from virgin fiber, which may even come from the old-growth forests that have been cleaning our air since the beginning of time.
