 oito tecnologias futuristas deixar casa mais verde  A disseminação da technology pelos utensílios domésticos gera alguns resultados engraçados e interessantes para manter a casa mais verde e sustentável. Below, a list of 8 curiosas technologies verdes para o lar.

planta sorri

1 – Plant that smiles – Who cultivates or already tried to create plants at home knows that this is tough and sometimes cruel. The corre-corre journal can affect the time and attention dedicated to vazinhos, that need water, air and an airy place to stay. Without wishing to, forgot to shower them with a, two, three days, up to a whole week and, all of a sudden, all that dry natural beauty and dies. All wouldn't it be easier if the seedlings could communicate their needs?

It was exactly the solution found by the designer JunyiHeo. To give a helping hand to humans (and save the lives of plants), He created a clever vessel which measures soil conditions, temperature and humidity and, from calculations, checks to see if everything is in order with the changes. The result is expressed in an LCD screen via faces shaped pictograms that express satisfaction or dissatisfaction. The plant also "smiles" when it is watered or "saddens" to warn when overdone that already has more water than you need.

pia com aquario

2 – Pia with aquarium water economy promotes - Consumer awareness about the waste of water in everyday life is no easy task. Attentive to the issue, the Chinese designer Yan Lu created the “Poor Little Fishbowl Sink”, a sink that uses an aquarium with live fish to stimulate, emotionally, conscious consumption. Where the faucet is open for common activities, How to brush your teeth and wash your hands, the volume of water in your tank mated to pia decreases, what threatens the survival of fish.

The water coming out of the faucet is not the same as the Aquarium, It contains food and waste products of marine animal; they are separated by a filter. According to the designer, the project aims to stimulate the conscious use of water through the feeling of guilt and responsibility for the life of the puppy. The project has a device which limits to some extent the aquarium water output so that the fish don't die, in the case, for example, someone leave the tap open for too long.

flor solar recarrega gadgets

3 – Solar flower recharges gadgets - In a world increasingly connected to electronics, the pressure on the energy resources is constant. Então que tal ter em casa uma pequena usina solar para recarregar seus devices tecnológicos?

Was thinking about it that the designer Bon-Axel29 organized an honour the "Solar Plant", a device with visual electric energy generating flower from the sunlight. Just leave it exposed to the Sun for a while and then plug the gadget you want to. Lightweight and compact, the Solar Plant can be taken to all sides, ensuring clean energy wherever and whenever you need.3 – Solar flower recharges gadgets - In a world increasingly connected to electronics, the pressure on the energy resources is constant.

chuveiro ecologico

4 – Eco-shower water filters - If you're the type that loves a cacheira bath, o Eco-chuveiro Phyto Purificação é ideal para reproduzir a sensação de uma “ducha” no meio da nature. He has a special hydraulic system able to recycle and regenerate the waste water through a garden in the box, where each part plays a role in water cleaning.

The sand where the seedlings are planted serves as an initial filter, where the liquid passes before reaching to the roots, responsible for the removal of heavy metals and bacteria. Finally, the water is free from any impurity remainder to pass through a carbon filter. With the eco-shower, It is possible to save a valuable natural resource, while still maintaining a garden right in the bathroom. The project of designers Yasamoto, Alban Le Henry, Olivier Pigasse and VincentVandenbrouck.

fazenda na cozinha

5 – Parasite Farm: a farm in your kitchen - Cultivate spices and vegetables at home is a dream for those who love to cook. Today, in most grocery stores, It is already possible to find specific seedlings for this purpose. But for those who like dare even, the German designers Charlotte Dieckmann and Nils Ferber created the Parasite Farm, a perfect system of agriculture for internal environments.

It is composed of varied dimensions vases that fit where the owner wants to. The coolest is that the master-cuca can customize your void to optimize kitchen work. You can for example have an ironing board adapted for cutting plants, where the unwanted parts can "slide" straight to the Earth, serving as fertilizer in composters. The whole process is self-sufficient – while the Parasite Farm receives food pieces, It also provides fresh vegetables.

geladeira gel

6 – Refrigerator uses gel for cooling food – Besides being one of the most widely used in home appliances, the refrigerator is a Pope-first energy, responsible for up to 9 % spending on account of the light. In a futuristic appeal to rethink conventional models, Russian Yuriy Dmitriev designer created the concept Bio Robot Refrigerator for Electrolux, that does not use electricity, or another energy source.

Its centre is populated by a biopolymer gel that has chemical properties to cool and preserve foods. All the user has to do is insert the gel products (non-sticky and odorless, According to the creator) and leave them there, freezing naturally, as in a common refrigerator. The food still would be visible and accessible to anyone. Four times less than a traditional refrigerator, the Bio Robot Refrigerator has no doors or shelves and can be used in vertical, horizontally and up on the roof.

7 – Bound in conscience "green" - Have you thought of how often you forget a lamp lit at home or even at work? Sometimes, you even know you're expending energy, but that barely has let the light from the hallway lit for longer, or a lamp plugged into the whole night in the living room? Everyone, to a greater or lesser degree, It's a little like this, inattentive with energy spending.

Concerned to make people aware of the need to preserve the planet's natural resources, the American design student Andrew Harmon of the University of Michigan developed a series of switches and Sockets innovators with leaves, MOSS and small flowers. Although realistic, the cover is made of artificial material. The idea of the collection named "Growth Plate" is spreading the message "green" by House, in remembering that nature suffers of our actions, even the most everyday.

cesto lixo sem saco

8 – Plastic bag dispensing junk basket - Behold, one hand on the wheel for the solution paulistanos, that since January have to adapt to the "banning" of supermarket plastic bags in the city. The idea is pretty simple: in place of ordinary polyethylene bag, Enter bags made of paper layers.

The ideal according to its creators, the Italian designers Riccardo Nannini, Domenico Orefice and Emanuele Pizzolorusso, It is not to be discarded in the trash ecological named Fabriano called solid waste, as plastic containers, glass, papelão e other materiais que podem ser reciclados. The basket can also be used in offices, for disposition of paper.
