3-D food printer

Scientists at Cornell University are developing a commecial 3-D food printer known as a “FabApp” that could one day allow you to print your meals off the Internet using raw-food “ink.” The printer is limited to ingredients that can be extracted from a syringe, but researchers say they’ve had success creating chocolate, cake and cookies.
Pretty soon the FabApp may become as common as the microwave, a development that would have huge environmental benefits. Chef Homaro Cantu told the BBC, “You can imagine a 3-D printer making homemade apple pie without the need for farming the apples, fertilizing, transporting, refrigerating, packaging, fabricating, cooking, serving and the need for all of the materials in these processes like cars, trucks, pans, coolers, etc."


Eco-friendly bombs

The explosives commonly used for military and industrial applications generate toxic gases that can pollute the environment upon detonation. To address that issue, German scientists began exploring more environmentally friendly options. Using tetrazoles, a class of materials that derive their energy from nitrogen instead of carbon, they created two bombs: HBT and G2ZT. These bombs are less likely to explode accidentally than conventional explosives, and they produce fewer toxic byproducts.


Le Petit Prince

If mankind decides to colonize Mars, Le Petit Prince would be a good partner to bring along. This robotic greenhouse concept by Martin Miklica is designed to help the exploration and population of Mars by protecting plants and scavenging the planet for nutrients. Le Petit Prince carries a plant inside its glass container and provides it with everything it needs to flourish on the red planet. The greenhouse robot is designed to learn the optimal process of searching for nutrients, and it can send reports to its fellow robots through wireless communication, enabling them to learn from one another.

Lol the robots in Wall-E are coming to life and that's a good thing :D

Office Paper to Toilet Paper - White Goat Paper Recycler

Your office will never waste paper again with Oriental's White Goat machine, which converts normal paper into toilet paper. Simply insert about 40 sheets of paper, and in 30 minutes you’ll receive a freshly made roll of toilet paper. The machine shreds the paper, dissolves it in water, thins it out and then dries it and winds it around a roll. According to Oriental, it costs about 12 cents to churn out one roll.
White Goat goes on sale in Japan this summer and will be priced at $100,000. While the machine will definitely make your business more eco-friendly, there is one snag: Where are you going to store this nearly 6-foot-tall machine?

Blood lamp

When designer Mike Thomspon asked himself, “What if power came at a cost to the individual?” he ended up creating the blood lamp as a statement on energy conservation. This single-use lamp requires a drop of blood to be activated — a personal sacrifice that will really make you think twice before turning on the lights. The lamp’s secret ingredient is luminol, the chemical forensic scientists use to check for blood, which glows blue when it reacts with the iron in red blood cells.

If Hoyoung Lee’s concept printer becomes reality, you’ll never throw away another pencil stub and never buy another ink cartridge. The pencil printer separates the wood from pencils and uses the lead to print documents. There’s even a built-in eraser component that allows you to remove text from a page and reuse the paper, so you’ll be saving money and trees.

These quirky, eco-friendly pencils make writing and sketching as much fun for your nose as it is for your eyes because they're infused with natural scents that waft up as you use them. And we're not talking eau de pretentious scents; we're talking Black Cherry, Bubble Gum, Cinnamon, Cotton Candy, Grape, Orange, Rootbeer, Tropical Blast, Very Berry, and Watermelon.
UGH. SO MUCH WANT! But do they sell them here?

garbage chair the most stupid piece of eco friendly furniture
chair garbage the most stupid piece of eco friendly furniture

Around the world, as people are becoming more conscious about the environment, the demand for eco friendly products is increasing. And when it comes to furniture, the trend of going green is fast picking up. A lot of furniture manufacturers took note this trend and started producingeco-friendly products and ensuring they were readily available.

Now Nick Demarco a student from from the California College of the Arts designed an “eco friendly piece of furniture” named the XS chair that can be filled with anything you have in excess- old clothes, magazines or in this case, garbage and bottles. The prototype is made of vinyl, but Nick says the production models will be made of a recycled plastic mesh. Finally I know that we all need to be eco-conscious, but I don’t think that you can sit comfortably on this kinda green chair that will have sounds of crushing bottles and denting cans when you rest your butt. I don’t know what they teach those students at this college, but there are definitely better ways to recycle your garbage and also to get an eco-friendly seating furniture. Below you can see the a video of Nick describing the chair.

I don't care. I wanna have that chair. I wanna sit on it.
