Via DesignFlute, I found out about designer screen printed solar cells. ‘Instead of mounting the solar module on the roof, it could be integrated in the glass façade of a building. It is possible to produce it in desired colours, print images or text on the module.’

Hang On Outlet

July 29, 2008

I usually try to stear clear of concept designs but I still check them out at yanko design. They just posted one I really liked the functionality of – the ‘Hang On Outlet’ by designer Paulo Oh.

I posted in the past about the Belkins Conserve Surge Protector that is available this summer that allows you to completely shut off the power to devices that consume standby power with a handy remote control, but the Power Cost Controller Power Strip allows you to monitor its large LCD display to count consumption and cost by the kilowatt-hour, same as your local utility. Monitor your electric consumption by hour, day, week, month, even an entire year. Also check the quality of your power by monitoring voltage, line frequency, and power factor.
