Comments Off on This ring is made of smog harvested from Beijing’s polluted skies

Previously, we wrote about Dutch designer Daan Roosegaarde’s  incredible vacuum cleaner that can suck urban smog right out of the air , a design which Roosegaarde hopes to have functioning in Beijing by next year. Now the designer is turning that smog vacuumed from the skies of Beijing into rings of soot that you can wear right on your fingers. Each ring comes with either a fake diamond made from soot or a stone with a cube of soot in the center, and Roosegaarde hopes the project will help bring awareness to the issue of air pollution.

Click here to view the embedded video. Look out,  Tesla ! NASA’s  Johnson Space Center has just entered the race for the coolest car with some truly awesome technological advancements. NASA engineers recently unveiled their Modular Robotic Vehicle prototype , which boasts four independent wheels and a remote-control mode that allows it to essentially drive itself. While it is admittedly not the sleekest-looking vehicle on this planet, looking more akin to golf cart than other electric cars on the market, it has a slew of smart features that may inspire other car makers to get back to the drawing board.
