A cool way to be green

Prosit

"Connecting the corks" is an open and flowing movement. The objective is to offer clean alternatives, recycling and reusing precious raw material that is wasted. More than 2500 tons of cork stoppers are thrown away every year (just in Spain!). Because of the incredible physical and structural properties that cork has, it is an ideal floaty material to build surfboards. Cork can also withstand the marine environment. "Corknnecting boards" are ecological surfboards. The guys at richpeoplethings create a surfboard trying to make it with the maximum respect and care to the environment. From the pine resin to the bees wax that they use as glue until the natural fiber and the bioresin they use to finish the boards, all try process try to increase that intimal conection to nature. Never had a better excuse to open a bottle of wine!

This cargo bike — simply called the Mk I – is for anyone who loves cycling: fun and easy riding without compromising usability. It has long been established that the bicycle is in fact an actual alternative to the car and that the two-wheeler is, in many cities, actually even faster. But although there are many obvious benefits of cargo bikes, as we know them, they have so far lagged the joy of cycling. We have set out to change that. The Mk1 is designed to offer the same space and opportunities of the traditional trikes, while providing the ease of riding one experiences from a two-wheeler. Add the E-motor to the Mk1 and you get the Mk1-E with a powerful center-mounted motor assist - a small motor with a huge effect on your everyday life. This cargo bike isn’t cheap but for sure less expensive than the car we introduced you yesterday!!!

Pinch of salt

Making its official debut at the 2014 geneva motor show in march, the QUANT e-sportlimousine has now been officially approved by tüv süd in Munich for use on public roads. Built around a monocoque composed of carbon-fibre structures, the intelligent four seater electric sportscar boasts gull-wing doors and features an innovative drive-train concept with four electric motors (one per wheel). It draws power from nanoFLOWcell, an electrolyte flow cell power system that works on the principles of the redox flowcell, which was developed in 1976 for NASA and the american space program. Thanks to this technology, the vehicle delivers a driving range of up to 600 km, and is powered exclusively by salt water. Packed with a 912 horsepower engine, the EV hypercar also reaches blistering performance figures of 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.8 seconds, and a top speed of 380 km/h. Is it all clear? Do You think it’s just crap? Never mind: I still go by bike!

From Russia with bottle

Well. I can’t understand anything the man is saying, but the video is amazing. Is fascinating watching this video about how to turn plastic bottles into plastic thread and interesting to see him use it to bind things together and then take a heat gun to it to seal it together. Clever!!! I’ll drink a vodka in your honor, dear russian inventor: Vashe zdorovye!
