Oregon Scientific to Create Solar Line

Oregon Scientific has just released their Climate Control Weather Station. This is it first in their new line of energy savers. With a built-in solar panel, it monitors temperature and humidity by remote wireless sensors in up to 4 different location both in and outside. The device needs only an 8 hour charge for operation of up to 3 months, has a radio controlled clock and calendar and is available for pre-order now. In September, the company will add two more products, another weather station that will display an iconic future weather forecast and Atomic time, and a more compact version.

BigBelly Eats More, Regurgitates Less Often

phillybigb.jpg

Pay attention, NYC. Clever Philadephia has installed 500 BigBelly garbage cans. Instead of being emptied about 20 times a week like conventional ones, the BigBelly compacts the trash and needs to be emptied only 5 times a week since it holds up to 8 times as much. This means only 8 workers are needed instead of 33. Even better, the devices automatically contact the Streets Dept. HQ to let them know when they are full. The city estimates that they will save about $12.9 million in the next ten years.
