Neoluxiim has come up with an e-ink display, powered by the sun, referred to as IIM (Ink-In-Motion.) While there is not much information available as yet to a specific product, we will try to keep up with any companies that try to incorporate the new technology. The company is already distributing panels for homes and businesses. They are easy to install, portable and work under standard outdoor lighting of up to 400 lux.

Toyota Prius Cooled by Solar Module

prius.jpg

The Toyota Prius, the eco-friendly car, gets friendlier all the time. Kyocera Corporation is providing multi-crystalline silicon solar cells that will control the car's ventilation system. It does so by using the electricity generated from the module to cool even when the car is parked. That means not having to get into an overheated car in the summer if you cannot park in the shade.

Obama Urges Michigan to Build Solar

obamainwarren.jpg President Obama showed up in Warren, Michigan today to speak to students at Macomb Community College. Aside from speaking about changes in education (increased Pell grants and retraining for those who lost their jobs recently in the auto industry,) he also spoke about how the state should start training for and produce more devices "to build a better electricity grid." Included were wind turbines and solar panels. His exact words, "Michigan, you know bad weather. You need to weatherize. " Amen to that.

India to Utilize Solar Power for Rural Areas

farooq.jpg

India is planning on using solar power to electrify rural areas. Prime Minister of New and Renewable Energy Farooq Abdullah, shown here, said that although the cost is currently too expensive, their National Solar Mission will look into a less costly means of energy that will include storage and uninterrupted flow. Offering incentives to companies to help develop the new power structure, the government is hoping to get remote areas going in the next few years.

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.
