The team at Studio Lebedev designed the ‘Stubus’ Watch to be lightweight and waterproof. The device is banded together with high quality leather and has a circular glass face over the wood rings. At first glance, the piece looks like a small cut of a tree trunk, but if you look closer, you’ll find the second hand and the hour hand cut into the wood. A complicated device, hidden in a simple object.

Suntech, a solar panel company, was supposed to be a leader in environmentally-safe energy movement in China. It is now bankrupt.
Thanks to government subsidies, the renewable energy industry in China has been able to lower the cost of solar energy. But the industry is highly dependent on subsidies at a time when governments are under pressure to cut spending. China’s promotion has left production capacity at levels that outstrip demand, causing financial problems for the long-term sustainability of the industry.
Are world powers doing enough to create sustainable environmental policies that help both the environment and companies thrive?

The facets allows for an interactive playfulness, and the contents of the bag influences the form of the bag.
Jet engines need cutting-edge materials that are strong, light and can withstand extreme heat. GE is developing a material that can handle high temperatures like ceramics can and is also as tough as metal. Here, a projectile fired at a sample of advanced ceramic composite tests the material’s ability to endure the strike.
Using classic European delivery bikes as inspiration, the Faraday combines innovative technologies to create a revolutionary bicycle. In passing, the Faraday might just seem like an ordinary bike with a hint of style, but housed within the frame is a battery and motor to assist in your commute. With a 45-minute charge time and 15 miles of pedal assist, the Faraday adds some pep into your pedaling.
The Faraday team tell us a bit more about the bike:
“At Faraday Bicycles, design is about much more than just appearance – it’s about the entire rider experience. Despite its extraordinary capabilities (it’s electric!), we designed the Faraday Porteur to look and ride just like a familiar, high-quality bicycle. The Faraday Porteur looks and feels like a premium city bike, but it performs in a class of its own. Most importantly, the Faraday lets you work as much, or as little, as you want.”

So this is an absolutley brilliant idea! Just attach the plug on to a window and it will harness solar energy. A small converter will convert it into electricity which can be freely used as a plug when you are in the car, on a plane or outside.
Love this design and I really think it has a great potential.
