Power Flowers Artsy Wind Turbines


Pennsylvania Artist David Edwards has created 14 ft. tall sculptures with his inspiration coming from sunflower petals. The Power Flowers are wind turbines with solar panel-covered blades. The energy goes into both a built-in battery and LED bulbs, and can power up laptops, cell phones and other electronic devices. A 6 ft. replica was displayed at a recent EcoFest, a Fair in the Park in Shadyside and summer workshops from Pittsburgh's Parks and Recreation Department. Some of the smaller versions may be sold at a price of $8,000 - $10,000.

Solar Frost Air Conditioner Prototype


Industrial designer Philip Stankard has a new concept designed for keeping cool. The Frost system works by replacing outlet electricity by solar panels that collect electricity during peak daytime hours to be used later. An ice pack is placed in a refrigerator freezer to chill and cool the solar air conditioner's breeze. Nice idea, Philip.
