“The New York City Waterfalls” is a public art project of four man-made waterfalls rising from New York Harbor, some as high as the Statue of Liberty. Organized by the nonprofit Public Art Fund and the city of New York, it is being billed as the city’s biggest, since “The Gates”, the $20 million effort by the artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude in 2005.
Gotta love those Danish people, they do creative cartoons and now the trioBike version 2! I guess the idea is nice, but when I look at this, but I can’t help but wonder how bad its going to be once this happy mom decides to pick up the phone as she is paddeling and by accident runs into another trioBike version 2. Seems like the kids are the least safe in this kind of ascenerio, althought the website that this is being sold on states “Tested to the highest Danish child safety standards.” :)
This is a brilliant idea… what’s next: run around to get your laptop charged :)
LONDON (Reuters) – What do you do if you are stuck in a field at a pop festival but there’s trouble ahead because your mobile phone’s battery is about to run out?
Thanks to a new gizmo, you now just need to face the music and dance.
Mobile phone operator Orange said on Tuesday it had teamed up with GotWind, a firm specializing in renewable energy, to produce a recharger powered by dance energy alone.
The portable kinetic energy chargers will be given a test run at this year’s Glastonbury Festival, the world’s biggest greenfield music and arts celebration that begins on a farm in Somerset on Friday.
Orange said the prototype chargers weigh the same as a phone and are about the size of a pack of cards.
Attached to the user’s arm, they employ a system of weights and magnets which provide an electric current to top up charge in a storage battery. This can then later be used to recharge the phone.
“We wanted to create a fun, engaging and interactive product which would encourage users to have a laugh while charging their mobile phone and at the same time test out a new energy-efficient prototype,” said Hattie Magee, Head of Partnerships at Orange UK.
