There are countless ways in which we can integrate day to day life with green technology for the benefit of everyone. For example, living in Ireland and dealing with the drag of long gloomy days during winter, I’m always looking for ways of keeping myself away from the local pub outside of work hours. Then I had an idea. Has anyone ever considered a cycle trainer attachment with rollers rigged up to the back wheel, consequently connected to a charging bank consequently powering the house by storing the freely generated electricity? Not only will I be saving money on electricity, I am away from the pub saving money and getting fit in the process. Then I considered the possibility of being rigged up to a virtual reality headset and racing in a virtual Tour de France. The reality being that it’s pouring down with rain outside, but I’ve managed to keep dry, happy and have occupied myself with something a little more constructive, even if I am at the back of the race.
If you have ideas on how we can develop new and innovative technologies maybe you’d like to share it with the online community or patent it yourself, market the idea and share the website link with earthsense.info Please write your thoughts or comments below.
