Abundance at the Bottom: Algae Based Nutritional Supplement and Sustainable Bio-Fuel Production

While these technologies have been utilized for decades on a stand-alone basis, we will be the first to integrate them together so that the byproducts of each process become key inputs for the next. The total system is able to provide entire communities with ultra-clean burning ethanol cooking fuel, renewable electricity for area clinics, schools, shops/businesses and homes, high-protein animal feed, organic fertilizer, algae-derived biodiesel, clean drinking water, and managerial, skilled & unskilled employment opportunities.

Don’t Be a Luddite: Buy an Electric Car

Do you truly feel shitty about the oily pelicans in the Gulf? Do you want to throw a shoe in the face of the OPEC nations? When you gaze in the mirror do you want to see a lean green clean machine?

2010-2011 is a crucial moment in history as over a dozen EVs arrive on the market.  Will you buy one?  Are you cutting edge cool or a foul fossil Luddite?  You can vote immediately for a superior future with your wallet, or hesitate awkwardly like an impacted bowel.

Using Human “Wetware” to Control Robots

What happens when a man is merged with a computer or a robot? This is the question that Professor Kevin Warwick and his team at the department of Cybernetics, University of Reading in the UK have been trying to answer for a number of years.
