Solar Swimming Pool Rings


These 5' Sun Rings float atop your swimming pool's surface and each one generates up to 21,000 BTUs during the day while reducing evaporation at night. Because each ring attaches by magnets, they can easily disconnect for various shaped pools.

LG Solar Hybrid Air Conditioner


LG's new hybrid air conditioner uses solar energy to supplement its power supply. Producing 28,000 BTUs, the free-standing F-Q232LASS produces up to 70 watts of power per hour. The result is that it can reduce about 212kg of CO2 over a decade, the equivalent of growing about 800 pine trees.

EPRI Crawler Inspects Lines and Cables


This cable crawler, still in the prototype stage, was designed to move along power lines and seek out any problems or tree overgrowth. Designed by the Electric Power Research Institute, the 6 foot long robot is equipped with cameras and sensors. While it mainly runs on electricity from the wire it runs through, it has a back-up solar power system, which should come in handy when the bugger isn't easily accessible.
