You’re running late for work and your iPhone battery is low (again), but you can’t for the life of you locate your stupid charger. And anyway, the thing is so frayed it’s bound to cause an electric shock. If this sounds familiar to you, then check out Native Union’s KEY cable . We spotted this brilliant design at the ICFF furniture fair at the Javit’s Center in New York, and it’s so affordable, we thought everyone should know about it. Details after the jump.

New Nanoparticle Material Could be a Major Breakthrough for Concentrated Solar Power

Comments Off on New Nanoparticle Material Could be a Major Breakthrough for Concentrated Solar Power

  Renewable energy is the power of the future and solar power technology just had a huge development that could see concentrated solar power (CSP) become much more efficient. While traditional photovoltaic solar panels turn sunlight directly into electricity, concentrated solar power first turns sunlight to heat and then to energy – and the key to both processes is the efficiency of the panels when converting sun rays to electricity. A team of researchers at UC San Diego (UCSD) recently came up with a nanoparticle material that may let CSP plants absorb and convert more than 90 percent of captured sunlight – a significant boost that’s being hailed as a breakthrough for solar power .

Comments Off on INTERVIEW: Tiny House Pioneer Dee Williams Discusses Living Large in 84 Square Feet in Her New Memoir “The Big Tiny: A Built-it-Myself Memoir”

We’ve featured many a tiny house on Inhabitat, but did you know that one trailblazing lady was the inspiration behind many of those miniature homes? Meet Dee Williams : an early pioneer and sustainability advocate of the tiny house movement, she downsized from a three bedroom home into an 84 square foot house she built herself for $10,000 after she was diagnosed with a heart muscle disease. Ten years later, she’s inspired countless others to pursue big dreams in tiny spaces and has just recently published her first book and memoir, “The Big Tiny: A Built-it-Myself Memoir.” Unlike the typical how-to construction manual–Williams has already published a DIY tiny house e-book called “Go House Go” –”The Big Tiny” delves into Williams’ motivations and life lessons learned from building and living in a tiny house the size of an area rug.
