GravityLight: i don’t know about its resource-efficiency, but this lamp makes a lot of sense: replacing the battery by using gravity’s potential energy makes this a much more eco-friendly product and presumably increases its life-span due to less ‘high-tech’ parts that need specialized maintenance.

no wonder they already raised three times the amount (as of dec 17) they were looking for – awesome project!

charming introduction to masterpeace, an initiative using the power of art to “inspire world leaders to really deliver on two extremely important goals: creating a world with less armed conflicts and no nuclear arms, creating a world in which opportunities are shared equally.”

UnBox Festival: exactly where i need to be next week. luckily, i already have my plane ticket and visa- extremely excited about this!

The UnBox Festival is a response to the emergence of a new subculture: one that straddles the spirit of innovation, is fostered by an enterprising spirit, and invites the engagement of all senses. UnBox manifests itself as a blend of different events – including a conference, workshops, exhibitions and performances – designed in sync with one another, to stimulate thought, debate and action.

still lots of problems to solve!

interesting feature by national geographic (thx, danbar!)
