We use room fresheners and artificial air purifiers in our rooms for pleasant aroma and for good feel and mood. Since these are not nature based, using these continuously may affect our respiratory system in the long run. We have air plants, technically called Tillandsias which have the capacity to absorb harmful pollutants in air. By making best use of them, we can purify air in our living room in an eco friendly way.

Solar roads are going to emerge as future roadways to enable energy re-usability. These roads are about to take shape in trial as parking lots to test its compatibility and functionality. And the real plan is to implement them as 12 by 12 wide road lanes which has LED warning system that alerts drivers where ever desired and it can illuminate the roads in the dark. Also the heating system prevents the stagnation of snow and water on the roads. And the main advantage is these roads will generate some energy when vehicles travel over them. Despite of some setbacks these roads can revive the future roadways.

This notebook stands as a technological leap towards eco-friendly gadgets. Imagine a notebook which can be rolled and carried away. And the most important thing is it can work with oxygen which eradicates the use of electricity which in turn reduces power and is eco-friendly.
When the notebook is rolled out completely, one can find a tag like structure which is a battery indicator. Of course, charging this notebook is nothing but immersing the notebook in to a bucket of fresh water! The cylindrical part of the notebook is incorporated with the entire mechanism that can use the oxygen in the water to power up the notebook through electrolysis method. And the status of charging can be perceived via indicator tag. If water is not available to you, no worry! This thing can be charged through solar energy too! Quite impressive.

A reflector that can melt metals. Sounds terrific. Designed by a 19 year old young scientist cum student, this multiple mirror reflector can melt any kind of metal and almost everything. With this technology we can save power and many resources and machines that are being used now to melt metals. Actually, the concept is simple. The designer used thousands of small mirror blocks to form a dish and he redirected sunlight through it. Resulted in a high power reflector that uses solar energy which costs nothing. This has many advantages such as high power, cost effective and serves very better.

Environmental temperatures are increasing drastically leaving us in a situation of extinct ambiance. And many scientists are extending their hands to resolve this situation and we too must be in a position to share ours to create a hopeful climate that lasts few more centuries. Solaris concept comes to the category of reducing the usage of exhaustible fuels and others which increases temperature. SOLARIS works as a sun-shading system for the outdoor spaces: cafés, parks, beaches. It can be used by everyone who works / plays with an electronic portable device like a laptop. It is targeted at executives, students and everyone who likes the open-air. In providing energy points, wireless connection and sun shading, SOLARIS allows you to work outside the office, promoting new experiences and creating new habits for a more sustainable and socially inclusive city landscape. So charge your electronic portable devices on the move via solar energy and thereby reducing hazardous effects of global warming.

Environmentalists and researchers are shouting daily about the tragic effects of global warming. Every peace organization are struggling to suggest us to save power and conserve energy by using eco friendly products. This is another flashlight in the row with exciting new features.
In the general flashlights that we observe daily, you can open it from the back and load the batteries and use it. But this MIA electric flashlight is quite different except for the opening. You can split it open into two halves where there are two modes of power supply to ignite this flashlight.
- One is solar power
- Another is electrical power.
